Make sure your First Aid certification is up-to-date if you want to work as a caregiver. Usually you need to do a refresher course every 2 years to keep you up-to-date. Also make sure you have your own first aid kit to treat any emergencies or accidents - Click here for more details.
There are many wonderful childcare courses out there which will give you the qualifications and skills to work in childcare - Click here for more details.
We suggest you browse through the International Nanny Association site for helpful advice on becoming a nanny (http://www.nanny.org/sywtban.htm), salary and tax (http://www.nanny.org/faqspayroll.htm), and for access to many other great resources.
