Our training courses are designed to prepare you for the job as a Koru Kids nanny in a fun and interactive way, using videos, audio and quizzes.

Paediatric First Aid:

Here’s what’s covered:

  • How to handle a child who collapses - including primary survey, CPR and the recovery position

  • Shock

  • Head and spinal injuries

  • Burns

  • Bleeds

  • Poisoning

  • Fractures and dislocations

  • COVID-19

  • Administering medicines

Please be aware that this training is not certified by an Awarding Organisation, and we will not be able to provide you with an official first aid certificate. We've taken reasonable steps to ensure the material is comprehensive, accurate, and up to date. However, we can’t guarantee that the material covered in this training is the same as the information included in a certified course. If you'd like to do a more extensive and certified course, let us know and we can suggest a provider.

In addition to our First Aid Training, we also offer free 1-to-1 sessions with a certified first aid trainer on the following topics:

  • Epilepsy and seizures

  • Allergic reactions and autoinjector (Anaphylaxis and EpiPen)

  • Diabetes

  • Asthma

If you're interested in attending one of these sessions, get in touch.

Next Level Nannying:

This course covers most of the common tasks and situations that an after-school nanny can expect to encounter.

It cover the daily tasks of an after school nanny (e.g. school pickups, cooking with children, helping with homework), meeting a family and their children's basic needs (risk assessment, safeguarding, time keeping and communication), as well as going above and beyond (e.g. growth mindset or feedback).

At the end of the course, you'll receives a booklet which summarises the content and contains even more information about how to be the best possible nanny for the children in your care.

Nurturing Little Ones:

This course is specifically aimed at nannies who will be looking after children under 4, and provides the core knowledge that a nanny will need to care for younger children.

Topics include weaning/feeding, safe sleep, safeguarding, hygiene and development.

Our training is designed to be interactive and enjoyable, ensuring you feel equipped and ready to provide exceptional care to the families you'll be working with. We're excited to have you join our Koru Kids community!
