Event Details

National Nanny Training Day is an annual event held to recognize the needs of young children and to raise awareness of the positive correlation between nanny training and quality care. This national initiative is part of Week of the Young Child, an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.  

On Saturday, April 13th nannies from all over the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia will gather in their local communities at training events designed to meet their unique needs.


Goals of National Nanny Training Day:

- Promote awareness of the importance of nanny training
- Offer an inclusive, educational event for ALL nannies (This event is open to all nannies in our community, no need to be registered with SPN!)
- Raise the overall quality of nanny care
- Encourage the growth of the NNTD movement by supporting each other’s efforts

Check in will start at 9:00 am and the event will begin at 9:30 am.



"Encouraging Responsibility: Being on Time, Chores, and Homework"

with Susan Stone Belton

Get practical advice on how to teach responsibility by having effective collaborative problem-solving discussions with your charges. They will be excited, feel more "grown-up", and be more cooperative when you use this approach to discuss leaving on time in the morning, chores, or homework.


"Pediatric Myth Busters"

with Dr. Shelly Miller

As a pediatrician with over a decade of experience and a fellowship in pediatric infectious disease, Dr. Miller is a local expert in children’s health. She will dispel myths around the fevers, dehydration, vomiting, sore throats, and injuries.


“The Nanny’s Role in Advocating for Children”

with Robin Jurs

It isn’t always easy to do what is best for the children we are caring for when we don’t feel aligned with the parent's wishes. In this session, we will explore ways to walk that fine line between advocating for the best interests of the children and respecting the desires of their parents. Robin will show us that we are all educators, and that by using the right language, we can educate the parents as well as benefit the children in our care.


Round Tables:

- “Temporary Nanny, Long-Term Impression” (with Sarah Kopf, Staffing Director) 

- "Nanny Charm School" (with Katelyn Smith, Recruiter)

- “Land the Job through Effective Interviewing” (with Maggie Berkshire, Owner)

- “Nanny 2.0: How to Increase your Skill Set & Advance your Career” (with Daryl Camarillo, Owner)

Daryl Camarillo, SPN Owner
Daryl opened her first nanny agency, Huntington Nannies, in Pasadena, California in 1990. After successfully serving Southern California, she and her family returned home to the Bay Area. Daryl and business partner Maggie Berkshire founded Stanford Park Nannies in 1997. In an effort to establish industry standards, Daryl became a founding member of the Assocation of Premier Nanny Agencies in 1993. She served on the APNA board of directors from 2005 to 2013, including her position as president from 2010 to 2012. 
Maggie Berkshire, SPN Owner
After several years as a nanny herself, Maggie started her tenure in nanny placement at Huntington Nannies in 1994. She later became a co-owner of Stanford Park Nannies with Daryl in 1997. She now works with families and nannies in both long-term and temporary placements.

Sarah Kopf, Staffing Director
Sarah joined Stanford Park Nannies in 2011 after having been a preschool teacher for two years. As our Staffing Director, she partners with Maggie in temporary placements, researches candidate files, assists with all of the behind-the-scenes processes of placing a nanny, and handles IT-related issues.
Katelyn Smith, Recruiter
Before joining our team in 2018, Katelyn was a nanny for several local families, oversaw licensed childcare centers as a program director, and was a residential care provider. From these experiences she gained an important and comprehensive insight into our industry, allowing her to provide astute advice to nannies and excel at her position as our recruiter.
