A nanny is a person who provides child care. Typically, this care is given within the children’s family setting.Throughout history, nannies were usually servants in large households and reported directly to the lady of the house. Today, modern nannies, like other domestic workers, may live in or out of the house, depending on their circumstances and those of their employers.
The aim of the course is to familiarize students in aspects of child care in preparation for a career involving the care, development, education and safety of young babies and children from newborns to adolescents.
According to New Rules you can pursue the nanny course:
The Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot replace the Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilots and provide eligible caregivers with a pathway to permanent residence once they’ve acquired two years of Canadian work experience. Caregivers with work experience in NOC 4411 (excluding foster parents) will be eligible for permanent residence through the Home Child Care Provider Pilot. Caregivers with work experience in NOC 4412 (excluding housekeepers) will be eligible for permanent residence through the Home Support Worker Pilot. Both the Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot will only provide work permits to caregivers who have a job offer in Canada and who meet the following criteria:
- Language tests results showing a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of 5
- One year of Canadian post-secondary education or the foreign equivalent
- Immigration admissibility to Canada
Caregivers already working in Canada on a work permit who meet these criteria can also apply for permanent residence through the new pilots. Each program will accept a maximum of 2,750 principal applicants each, for a total of 5,500 principal applicants, per year. The pilots also provide:
- Occupation-specific work permits for caregivers, providing the ability to change jobs quickly if necessary.
- Open work permits for spouses/common-law partners and study permits for dependent children, to allow the caregiver’s family to accompany them to Canada.
Employers hiring a caregiver from overseas will no longer need a Labour Market Impact Assessment.
