Creative skills

All children learn through play and play requires creativity from both the child and carer; whether you are creating a ship or a house under the dining room table for your next adventure or molding with clay for your latest story, we are right behind this creative spirit and realize how vital it is to nurture a healthy self esteem, confidence and imagination for the children we love and care for.

All Chilton Au Pairs & Nannies are taught how creativity can engage children and help them to learn and develop through their play. Au Pairs are taught how to develop children’s interests and imagination to engage them in learning without them even realizing it!

“We are the ‘kindling” in the fire or background music to their creative genius and spirit”

Home Economics

Nutrition and diet are vitally important to children’s development and growth. Chilton Au Pairs are taught what a healthy balanced diet consists of for children; how to ensure that they are getting the nutrients they need for their growth and development, and ensuing they form a healthy relationship with food.They learn about healthy meals for your children as well as how to cook with children to help them develop an interest in food.

It is vital children are encouraged to be part of food preparation, setting the table for meals, which they love, so we can engage them to get truly excited about eating good food with all the mystery taken out.We believe in old fashioned values where our children learn how rewarding it is to eat with the family & eat with good manners and positive interaction making a happier & healthier family life.

For cookery training we highly recommend BluBeri Hospitality

Practical skills

Chilton Au Pairs and Nannies are taught the practical skills needed to care for children, including caring for a new born baby by making up bottle feeds, bathing, changing nappies (‘real’ and disposable) and supporting the new mother prior to and after the birth.

They learn about the importance of routines and consistency in a child’s life; how to deal with challenging behaviour as well as how to engage children in storytelling and how to entertain children on a rainy day!

We work through all the latest studies and techniques of implementing positive discipline, good structure, boundaries and routine. “Our consistency, love and firmness is Key”

Chilton Au Pairs and Nannies are also taught the importance of adapting their skills and knowledge to work with the choices of each family they work for.

We stress – The Importance of our “supportive role” within a family to the parents and their children.

For those Au Pairs and Nannies who have no practical working experience with infant to older children outside their own families, we support and assist them in gaining practical work training in a real live home or pre-school.

When Chilton Au Pairs and Nannies leave our College they have completed a Pediatric First Aid course which is fully covered in our course(which we encourage our Au Pairs and Nannies to renew every 3 years) endorsed by The American heart Foundation
