Connection Centered Discipline Nanny Certification
Spring 2016 Dates Announced Below!
I’m so excited to be once again offering the Connection Centered Discipline Nanny Certification. This training was created from the ground up especially for nannies. As a 22 year nanny veteran, I know the unique challenges nannies face when dealing with discipline issues. As a Positive Discipline Parent Educator, communications trainer and mediator, I can help you successfully meet those challenges, effectively incorporate the Positive Discipline approach into your daily work and enlist the support of your employers.
The Connection-Centered Discipline program is built on the concepts of Positive Discipline, an internationally recognized approach that has hundreds of thousands of fans. It’s used in homes, churches, and schools around the world with kids from toddlers to teens. And there are over 30 published Positive Discipline books dedicated to every age group, family situation and unique challenge including children with special needs, Why? Because it works for reasons that we can feel good about. It focuses on connection, cooperation, respect, kindness, and encouragement. But it does so without being permissive or indulgent. It’s the perfect balance between Kumbaya and “It’s my way or the highway!” parenting.
CCDNC is a great training series for anyone looking to make their lives easier… so everyone right?! I am currently half way through the series and after only 4 classes I already see a difference in my kids’ behavior – and mine as well! I had read a Positive Discipline book several months before taking this course, however, I learned so much more having everything broken down and designed specifically for nannies. For me the most helpful part of this training was being able to implement each step week by week – all the while sharing my experiences and having the support of the other nannies in the class. I’ve been recommending this course to every nanny I know! ~Mallory Lynch

Lora is uniquely qualified from her 20+ years of experience as a nanny, her vast knowledge of positive discipline and her finely honed communication skills, to speak to nannies with an authority that few other people can. I find this topic infinitely fascinating and I am grateful for Lora’s ability to share her ideas. I would highly recommend this course to any career nanny at any stages of her career. I think it is a course that parents and nannies should take together as they are forming their successful family/nanny team. Everyone involved would benefit. ~Judi Merlin, owner of A Friend of the Family nanny agency in Atlanta, GA

How the Class Works
This class features 7 weekly on demand lessons, 1 released each Monday morning. Each lesson includes a video and/or audio recording, reading materials, homework assignment, and a quiz. You can work through the lesson when it’s convenient for you so you’ll be ready for the group review and coaching call on Sunday night.
To access the lessons, you’ll log into the site and be taken to your personalized learning dashboard. From there you’ll be able to access all lesson materials, turn in homework assignments, and take quizzes. Everything you need will be in one location.
All video recordings will be available through Vimeo, a premium service that supports all devices including Apple products. All audio recordings will be in MP3 format so you can easily load them onto your phone or i-pod and go!
Group Coaching Calls
Each week, you’ll have the opportunity to “meet” me and other classmates in a live call to review and discuss that week’s lesson material, to fine tune the new skills you’re learning, and see how Positive Discipline looks in real world situations. These calls will be recorded and available for replay.
Calls are scheduled for Sunday, January 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st, February 7th, 21st, and 28th. Each runs from 8:00 to 9:30 PM PST AND EST. (There are 2 calls per date.) Because this is a certification program, you must attend at least 5 of the 7 group calls. If you’re unable to do that, you can join in through the Home Study Program.
There will be 4 additional, optional follow up calls scheduled up to 4 weeks after the last group coaching calls is finished. These calls will be focused on helping you solidify your Positive Discipline practice. Those dates and times will be based on the group’s scheduling needs. Regardless of your schedule, you’ll have the live, personal support you need to be successful in this course!
You’ll also have access to a discussion group for current and former students. Here you can ask questions, share resources, and get support as you put to work the many things you’re learning.
Individual Q and A Recordings
I’m adding a fun, new feature to this session. Now you’ll be able to send me your question and I’ll create a quick MP3 answer and share it with the group. This audio Q and A gives you another option for getting customized support in your learning and practice.
Home Study Program
If you’re unable to make the live group coaching calls on Sunday evening, you can still receive your Connected Centered Discipline Nanny Certification. In the Home Study Program, you’ll listen to the weekly lesson and complete more in-depth homework and quizzes to make up for the discussion missed during the group coaching calls. You can move through the lessons at your own pace as long as you finish the entire 7 lesson series within 6 months. You’re welcome to join in on any of the group coaching calls your schedule allows and you’ll receive the call recordings each week too.
PLEASE NOTE, ALL REGISTRATIONS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
Registration deadline is Sunday, January 3rd, 2016.
