School teacher Emily Ward appreciated the need for training in structured early years childcare and education and founded the country’s first college to offer formal tuition in this field at Norland Place, London in 1892. Now situated in Bath, Norland College provides training to the highest level in all aspects of Early Years Development, safeguarding and child protection, child health, nutrition and cooking, child psychology, history, literature, developing a child’s maths skills. The students also learn first aid, Taekwondo self defence, safe driving skills and lifeguard skills.
Silentnight Private Staff is ideally placed to provide you with a Norland Trained Nanny to meet your personal requirements and who will ensure the best possible early years development and education for your children while providing excellence in all aspects of childcare.
