Ninja nannies!
UK nannies get anti-kidnapping training in self-defence and advanced driving.
The Norland Nannies in the UK have long been considered some of the best nannies-for-hire to the Royals, celebrities and wealthy business people, according to SWNS. In the current social climate their training has been fleshed out to cope with extreme contemporary situations such as kidnapping. In the YouTube video below, the nannies can be seen learning evasive driving techniques and being taught self-defence by an expert who normally trains bodyguards.

Risk prevention for SA childcare workers

These skills could be just as valuable to South African childcare workers, who potentially face kidnappers, hijackers and dangerous drivers in the course of their daily duties. The benefits of having your child in the hands of a better-trained professional are bound to put the minds of parents at ease.

The UK nannies are also taught sewing, first aid and cooking, apart from their “ninja skills” courses.
