This week we will be featuring some of our favorite posts of 2010. I, Greta, was honored to join the Regarding Nannies development team in July of this year.

I am from a city that has not had an established or seasoned nanny community. That is probably how the Nanny 101 posts came about. I figured that there are new nannies all across the country and world that are starting out and would benefit from ‘the basics’. I had fun designing the ‘lessons’ and even the ‘homework’. So, today I share with you our first Nanny 101.

So… let’s all take a seat, please listen carefully. There may be a pop quiz!

It is essential for a nanny to regularly focus on effective communication in their position. Here are some brief lessons to review. To finish this article click here… Nanny 101 – Communication
