Equipping caregivers with the skills to care for your baby
The arrival of a baby is a blessing for every parent. But it can also be a source of anxiety, especially if you need to return to work.
If you’re entrusting your baby to a grandparent, domestic helper or nanny, knowing that your baby is in a safe pair of hands will make your transition back to work a smoother one.
Specially co-developed with infant care professionals from the KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, this Basic Infant Care Training for Caregivers programme will equip your baby’s caregivers with the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to look after your baby securely and safely. This will be an online workshop, with live sessions from our professional, video demonstrations, online activities and quizzes. Everything you need to know about infant care will be covered!
From diapering and bathing to feeding and changing, this hands-on workshop will cover all your caregiver needs to know about the daily care and routine for your little one.
It will boost your caregivers’ confidence in caring for your child and also give you the assurance that your baby’s needs are being met.
