SM Post Nanny Certification

"I started working for National Nanny's parent company, Seattle Nanny Network, in 1999 and know firsthand the importance of a nanny's role in the growth and development of young children. I am still so close to the family they placed me with even as they are all grown up!  As the co-founder of Sproutable, I am thrilled to now partner with National Nanny Network to offer nannies and families the Positive Discipline tools, systems, and strategies they need to cultivate powerful relationships, teach social-emotional skills, and set healthy limits and boundaries with all kids. At Sproutable, we developed the Positive Discipline for Nannies certification course, an officially licensed Positive Discipline product. I found this especially rewarding as a former nanny to create a course that was specially tailored to nannies AND showed real nannies and families using the tools.  I have helped families for over 20 years now, including running the preschool assessment team and working in many elementary schools as a school psychologist and counselor for Seattle Public Schools. I draw from my real-life practical experience working with thousands of students with a variety of needs and my own three children to parent and nanny coaching, bringing a unique ability to translate research, child development and Positive Discipline principles into everyday solutions."
