Amslee Institute was founded in 2017 to provide affordable college-level training for nannies and sitters. With over 30 adjunct faculty who are experts in their field and passionate about elevating childcare, Amslee Institute developed a new, nanny-centric curriculum with over 45 hours of online training. Child development is core to the curriculum with classes on Music, Helping with Homework, Literacy, and STEM. Faculty members include child psychologists, physician assistants, nutritionists, teachers, lawyers, and professional nannies so the resulting curriculum is both comprehensive and practical.

The Department of Education, Commission for Independent Education approved Amslee Institute’s license application and authorized Amslee Institute to issue Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, Specialist, and Professional Childcare Diplomas and Certifications. Amslee Institute has also partnered over a dozen top Nanny and Domestic Placement Agencies across the United States. Amslee Institute invests in the Nanny community by teaching workshops and classes at Nannypalooza and the International Nanny Association (INA) annual conferences.

Amslee Institute was awarded the 2018 Women in Business Stevie Award for Best New Consumer Service

Amslee Institute authored The Ultimate Guide on How to Hire a Nanny

I’ve been a nanny for over five years and I learned so much more than I expected. In each program, I gained new skills and used them right away with the children in my care. The faculty are college professors who really understand childcare. I am now earning more to help pay for graduate school.

- Karli

I talk about the importance of education to the children in my care so it’s important that I invest in nanny and childcare training. I learned about nutrition, fitness, special education, child development, and so much more. The Professional Childcare program has made me a better nanny.

- Sarah

I worked as a live in nanny and want to earn more with another long term position. An Amslee diploma makes my application stand out from the others.

- Evelyn

As a mom who’s employed 2 nannies over 6 years, it was hard to find good candidates. I look for the Amslee diploma because it gives me confidence that the nannies have the right training to care for my kids.

- Lisa

I love teaching children about music and jumped at the chance to share my best tips and songs in a music course.  Music is fun and nannies have an opportunity to delight and educate the children in their care.

- Beth

We support our community. In addition, to fundraising for Toys for Tots and seeking contributors to scholarship programs, Amslee Institute also engages directly with the community on social media.
