Nannies and Domestic Employees
Do you hire a Nanny or Domestic Employee to help with childcare? Are you confident that they are skilled at supporting your child's optimal long-term development?
Many parents in Mexico have shared that the domestic support they access here has greatly enriched their lives. Nannies and Domestic Employees often provide a high quality and highly valued service. However these women have at times had limited access to formal education. They may also have culturally varied approaches when it comes to setting limits and supporting children's emotional, psychological, physical and social development.
We offer a four-part training program for Nannies/Domestic Employees. They will receive one-to-one training with a psychologist and early childhood specialist.
This program is delivered in Spanish and information is presented in an easy-to-understand yet comprehensive way. It draws on current best-practice guidelines for childcare including positive parenting practices. The program is delivered in a culturally-sensitive manner by female, Mexican psychologists.

This program is delivered by Yazmin Sánchez and Lucy Huerta. They are both:

About the program
Each of the four sessions is 45 - 60 minutes long. Sessions are delivered online (in-person sessions can be negotiated on request). The attendees will learn about:
1) Child development (0-5 years old or 5-10 years old)
2) Setting limits and positive discipline practices
3) Emotion regulation for children
4) Working in a cross-cultural household
Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.
The total fee for the program is $4800 + 16% IVA (total $5568). This is based on $1200 per session. If you create a group and multiple participants attend (for example, two domestic employees) this fee can be split equally between attendees.
