SAN ANTONIO National Nanny Training Day 2017
Sat, April 29, 2017, 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM CDT
NNTD was created and designed to recognize the needs of young children and to raise awareness of the positive correlation between educational training and improving quality care within our communities. This national incentive is a part of "The Week of the Young Child," an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
On Saturday, April 29th, nannies and educators all over the world will gather to attend conferences designed to meet their unique needs. We have worked diligently to bring you an array of exciting topics by local experts in their fields. This affordable training is a wonderful opportunity network with other nannies in your area, meet local agency owners, and enhance your professional skills and knowledge. Please join us for an amazing day of workshops and San Antonio's first ever NNTD event!
