Nanny Training & Mentoring

Mandie and Kiki have had the opportunity to work with high-profile families, travel, manage nanny shares, care for multiples, and children with special needs. As former professional educators, Mandie and Kiki are highly-capable of presenting information and strategies to set your family up for success! During your initial family consultation, Mandie and Kiki will help identify your needs and set a plan custom tailored to your family. They will then work with you or your nanny hands-on, in the home, to ensure the highest level of care is in place. Training is especially successful at the start of employment, or after a new baby is welcomed home. At the end of a training session, Starling will provide feedback and on-going support to you and your nanny.
