There aren’t many jobs you can walk into without any training, so why should looking after kids be any different?
Sittertrain Essentials courses
Whilst we can’t teach your au pair or babysitter the specific way you like your household to run, we can teach them the basics of child safety and put them in situations they are likely to face. What if you were in the bath with a 4-year-old and the 8-year-old shouts from downstairs “come quickly” What would you do?
Sitter Train is here to provide the key information every parent wants their babysitter, nanny or au pair to know through a fun, interactive and informative online course.
Practical knowledge with a certificate of completion
Recognize if a child is seriously ill and know what to do about it,
Setting expectations with children such as how to manage a child who doesn’t want to go to bed
Cross a road in the eyes of a child
How to recognize and manage a choking hazard
Managing screen time and household rules
“I thought all the information was extremely relevant, very easy to understand and concise. It makes me so much more confident to look after children”Terri Bright
“It takes a village to raise a child!” Au pairs, babysitters, teachers, parents and all caregivers, play a vital role in bringing up children so it is vital that everyone is trained and prepared for working with children”Jo Aldridge
What a wonderful course! Thank you Sitter Train for helping us settle our au pair into life in our family. We weren’t sure if we could spend the time needed to invest in teaching yet another au pair what to do but you did it for us! All we had to do was show her our timetable and certain things we liked our way!Vanessa F
Thank you Sitertrain for such a practical fun course. I loved how you put me in real life situations looking after a few kids at a time and unexpected things happen especially in the quizzes. It really helped me prepare for what its actually like being an AuPair.Marcel
