Greycoat: Nanny Conference Chiltern College Professional Nanny of the Year 2013
The search for 2013’s Chiltern College Professional Nanny of the Year is underway. This prestigious award has now been established for 7 years with many previous worthy winners.
The Nannies who have previously won have all relished this wonderful accolade. The aim of the award is raise the profile of professional Nannies as a whole and to seek out the very best professional Nanny who will represent the large number of childcare professionals who currently work as professional Nannies in this country.
The Professional Nanny of the Year Award is organised by The Chiltern College and has been supported Greycoat Childcare & Education for many years. We have always believed that it is so important to recognise the talents and achievements of Professional Nannies which, whilst being so imperative to working parent’s lives, so often go unnoticed and unrecognised in the wider society. Our Director of Childcare & Education, Stephanie Rough, is on the judging panel for the third year running. Stephanie is very excited to be involved once again and as a working Mum of two, she knows from personal experience the fantastic role that Nannies play and believes it is so important to recognise their wonderful achievements through the accolade of becoming the Nanny of the Year.
Together with launch of this years’ award is a brand new dedicated website for the Nanny of Year Award; www.nannyoftheyear.co.uk. It is full of information relating to the Award, the application process and all the previous winners. Applying for the Award has never been easier as this year you can now apply online.
