Nanny Intern Training Families

Training families are registered with PORSE and offer Nanny Interns the opportunity to live in or live out of their home while caring for their pre-school child or children. Families are an important part of a nannies learning, providing students with supervision, guidance and knowledge to support the learning of a Nanny Intern through practical, hands-on experience in a family home. In return for having nanny support, the family pays for the costs of the nanny’s training, and if it is a live-in position, will also provide room and board for the 20-week duration of the placement.

Your child/ren will benefit from the PORSE Programme, which includes individual learning plans, weekly activities such as PlaySchool, music and gym session, and monthly visits from a trained ECE teacher.
