Ready for your big OE? Welcome to Nannies Abroad
Train at home and earn while you learn
Are you looking for an affordable, high calibre Child Care Course that you can study extramurally?
The aim of the course is to familiarise students in aspects of child care in preparation for a career involving the care, development, education and safety of young babies and children from newborns to adolescents.
The course content provides you with a worthwhile resource to support further training in the Early Childhood Education Profession, and provides a qualification for nanny employment opportunities in USA or the UK as well as New Zealand.
The course involves hands on childcare practice, as well as assignments and tasks which you complete as you feel ready to throughout the course. You will put in approximately 2500 hours of work and you will end up with a qualification and a fantastic resource kit to take with you overseas. There is no down time for lunch breaks, holidays, or for ‘talks’ on things you may already know – so every hour you put in is quality time and because you choose to.

I have found that the course has helped me, especially with thinking of “projects” to do with Kevin (who is 3), and thinking through the right answers to his strange questions, rather than finding a way around it. The childcare skills and development section in particular are very helpful – my host “mom” is pregnant, with the baby girl due 8 days after I leave and it has helped me to think about what stage the baby is going through inside her.” Michelle from Christchurch while nannying in USA.”
