The Institute for families and Nannies is on a mission to change the paradigm. We believe nannies should meet the same standards required for anyone working in a licensed childcare facility. We believe parents should get necessary information and support to make an informed choice when hiring a nanny to care for their children. We believe preschool teachers should know how to care for children in home with parents as employers. Our mission is to elevate nannies out of the shadows to be seen supported and valued for the important work they do. We want parents to get the support to recognize quality when they see it. We believe quality childcare happens when parents and nannies work together and care together.
TIFFAN is a grass roots organization providing education, training and mentorship to nannies and families to elevate standards for the nanny industry, create healthy working relationships and ensure the highest levels of quality care for children.
Currently we offer the following programs:
