Caring for a child is a big responsibility. From the moment a caregiver takes charge, the responsibility of the child's safety, health, and general well being rests with the childcare provider.
Beyond Parenting Basics: The International Nanny Association's Official Guide to In-Home Child Care was developed to help prepare caregivers and parents for the responsibility that comes along with being a primary caregiver.
Co-authored by Sara McCormack Hoffman, director of the Professional Nanny Program at Minnesota State College and International Nanny Association (INA) Credentialed Nanny and author of Nanny to the Rescue!, Working Mom's 411, and A Mom's Ultimate Book of Lists, Michelle LaRowe, Beyond Parenting Basics is the perfect resource for anyone who desires to become a better caregiver.
Designed for use by those wishing to expand their knowledge of childcare, Beyond Parenting Basics is perfect for those preparing for a career as an in-home childcare provider or those already working in the field who wish to take the International Nanny Association's (INA) Nanny Credential Exam to become an INA Credentialed Nanny.
Beyond Parenting Basics also serves as an important resource for parents who wish to improve their parenting skills through the expansion of their childcare knowledge. Beyond Parenting Basics gives expert advice, presents up to date, reliable information and shares tried and true tips for providing the best childcare on topics including: health and safety, language, literacy, physical development, social development, emergency preparedness, emotional development, professionalism, nutrition, and more!
