Savvy Sitter Training

Chicago Collegiate Nannies not only selects the top nannies in the field, we train them. Each of our nannies completes our Savvy Sitter training course and becomes CPR certified by the American Heart Association. Some of the topics covered in our Savvy Sitter Training course include:

  • Developmentally-appropriate activities for children of all ages
  • Educational games and activities
  • Professionalism and family boundaries
  • Encouraging good behavior and handling discipline
  • Vacation/ Travel etiquette
  • Play-date supervision
  • Appropriate decorum while on the job
  • Being prepared in all circumstances

Our Savvy Sitter Training course and CPR certification services are also available to families who have a nanny already whom they feel could benefit from receiving additional training. Please see our Fee Schedule page for additional information.

"Lydia and Chicago Collegiate Nannies are exceedingly professional, have been a pleasure to work with, and provide a unique service for families that need part-time help. After 11 years of full time help, I needed to make the switch to part-time help. Chicago Collegiate Nannies took away the headache of trying to find qualified part-time candidates.  The agency recruits, screens and trains candidates. It selected qualified candidates based on my needs and provided me a handful of options to choose from and interview. The process of finding the right person was so simple. Even after making a placement, Lydia continues to call me to make sure all is going well. I highly recommend this agency and will absolutely use it again in the future."
