Meet Sarah Friday, Our Nanny of the Month


This month we are celebrating Sarah Friday. This is her story:

Prior to The Nanny Academy, Sarah was an unemployed housewife with four kids. She had to rely on her husband’s earnings as a police officer in Nigeria to cater for the household. A friend told her about The Nanny Academy and offered to sponsor her tuition at the Academy.

Despite skepticism about getting a job through The Nanny Academy due to her limited written communication proficiency, she applied and was accepted as a trainee after our recruitment team discovered she could read and communicate verbally in English.

Her biggest challenge was transporting herself to classes daily but Sarah was able to pull through with the support of family and friends. ‘It was not easy’ she admits. The Paediatric First Aid class was most appealing to Sarah. “I learned how I could have prevented the death of my first child who died from complications of choking on a piece of groundnut five years ago,” she said.

Sarah’s newfound skills boosted her confidence to secure a job. After weeks of training, she was hired as a Carer for the 3 months to 2 years baby section at a Daycare Center in the Lekki area of Lagos. Her training for the childcare sector which cut across professionalism and life skills helped her make a huge impression with the School’s interviewing board without feeling intimidated.

Sarah’s long-term plan is to own a home-based day-care centre. “I want to improve my knowledge and create more access for quality early childhood care and education”, she said.

Education empowers!

We see this over and over again in the testimonies of some of our nannies who go from barely having enough to living comfortable lives – and in some cases, moving on to start their own businesses- through the income they make from caring for children.

Well here’s another opportunity to be empowered by training as a child-caregiver or getting one trained.

We cannot over-stress the importance of having the right skills. Don’t cut corners when dealing with something as precious as a child’s well-being.

Get the right knowledge!!! Hire the right help!!!
