Online Early Years Food And Nutrition Courses - 3rd December 2018

Do your Early Years staff need to learn more about food and nutrition? With our online courses, they can learn about a wide range of topics from the comfort of their own home.

The world of food and nutrition can be a real minefield for many parents. But it makes a huge difference if childcare professionals can help offer information and advice.

A child’s diet should include plenty of starchy carbs, fruit and vegetables, and some protein to keep them healthy during this rapidly developing time. This should include at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Kids have higher energy and nutrient requirements for their body sizes in contrast to adults, which is why it’s so important they’re eating and drinking food and drink that meets their needs.

Early Years professionals play a big part in helping children and their parents learn about nutrition.

Our OCN Nutrition Course is the ideal introduction to this subject and covers everything from the digestive process and nutrition in children to management of healthy eating. Since this is an online course, it can be studied at any time from the comfort of your own home.

Accredited by the Open College Network, this course carries three credits and all units must be completed.

Do you love the idea of studying Child Psychology but don’t have time for a classroom based course?

A child’s mind is one of the most malleable things in the universe, ready to be shaped by the world and the experiences they have, which makes Child Psychology a pretty fascinating subject.

It is at pre-school age that children start to see themselves as individuals which make this age group particularly intriguing. A two-year old has twice as many neurons as an adult, with 100 trillion synapses- although they probably won’t remember anything before the age of three. Although what your baby learns will have an impact, they probably won’t remember it.

Children are all also born with their own unique personalities which impact how they relate to the world. Child Psychology is a type of developmental psychology that explores how children develop and learn, covering both emotional and academic intelligence.

At MNT Training one of our most popular courses is our Child Psychology Course which costs only £180 and teaches you how children learn, grow and think. This is one of our most popular courses and considers the development, behaviour and learning of children from birth onwards.

Children's Food and Nutrition Course - 9th July 2018

With child obesity plans to remove sweets from checkouts, it’s clear the government recognises they need to do more to tackle this problem. It’s also crucial for those working in childcare to teach children and parents the value of healthy food and nutrition.

With rising obesity rates, most parents want to make sure that children are eating a balanced diet, with plenty of fruit and vegetables, which will give them the best start in life and encourage them to eat healthily adults.  

There is plenty of truth to the saying, ‘You are what you eat.’

What a child eats can directly affect their behaviour with sugary foods leading to hyperactivity and poor concentration spans. Since young children usually eat at nursery during the week, it is essential that they are served nutritious meals every day.

If you’re looking to study children’s nutrition online, consider our OCN Child Nutrition Course at MNT Training.

This popular course consists of three units:

  • The Digestive Process and Nutrition in Children
  •  Management of Healthy Eating

Since this is an online course, it can be studied from the comfort of your own home. We also have additional courses which could also be relevant, including Weaning Babies onto Solids and Infection Control.

How to Become a Nanny - 21st May 2018

Although there is no set route to become a nanny, there are many qualifications that can help develop your career. If you’ve undertaken training, it shows you are serious about following this career path.

Often you will stay with the same family for years and children become very attached to their nanny, so if you like the idea of fostering a deep bond with a child, it could be the career path for you.

MNT Training can provide all the advice you need to become a nanny along with online courses to develop your career.

At MNT Training we have many courses that can help you become a nanny including a wide range of CACHE and OCN accredited training, such as:

Searching For Children's Food And Nutrition Courses? - 30th April 2018

Would you like to learn more about children’s food and nutrition?

One of the biggest problems with childhood obesity is it leads to adulthood obesity, with the government finding that overweight children are less likely to lose it as they get older.

With over a third of children aged 2-15 overweight, half the UK could be obese by 2030 if the problem continues, so it’s crucial something is done about it. 

One of the best ways to tackle this is to educate parents and children early on. Currently the government is adding £280 million to help with the school meal plans, but nurseries also have a huge part to play in implementing healthy eating.

If you’re searching for courses about nutrition, you can’t go wrong with our OCN Child Nutrition Course.

Our Children’s Food and Nutrition Course is an excellent way to learn more about diet and nutrition, covering the digestive process and nutrition, management of healthy eating, and special dietary requirements and ‘fussy eaters’. It also covers food allergies and intolerances along with special dietary requirements.

Since this is an online course, it can be studied from the comfort of your own home. It can also be enrolled upon at any time you like.

Children's Food And Nutrition Course - 5th February 2018

Are you looking for children’s food and nutrition courses online?

With childhood obesity continuing to rise, it’s more vital than ever to encourage healthy eating from an early age. In some parts of Britain, it’s been found that nearly half of children are dangerously overweight. In the last 40 years, childhood obesity for kids aged between 5-19 has increased tenfold worldwide.

One of problems driving this crisis is poor sleeping patterns, along with TV adverts of junk food and the increasing number of screens. Eating well can not only improve a child’s health but is far better for regulating their moods.

Childcare practitioners play a huge part in encouraging children to eat healthily, along with teaching parents about the importance of food nutrition. Many toddlers eat during the day at a nursery or with their childminder, so can learn a great deal from the kinds of foods you serve.

If you want to learn more about children’s food and nutrition, our online course can guide you through this fascinating topic.

Our OCN Level 3 Child Nutrition Course covers the digestive process and nutrition in children, management of healthy eating, and special dietary requirements and ‘fussy eaters’.

Accredited by the Open College Network, this online course is also highly affordable at only £125. Find out more about our Children’s Food and Nutrition Course today.

Child Psychology Courses Delivered Online - 4th December 2017

Are you interested in the way children’s minds work? Have you ever considered studying our OCN Child Psychology Course online?

Child psychology is a fascinating subject and unsurprisingly this is one of the most popular courses we have at MNT Training.

The subject is packed with interesting facts. For instance, did you know it’s at preschool when a child begins to see themselves as an individual? When they’re getting territorial over their possessions, shouting out ‘mine!’, it’s usually a sign this is starting to happen.

A two-year old has twice as many neural pathways as an adult, which is the most they’ll have in a lifetime and why their early years are so important: it has a huge effect on their brain development, even though children don’t tend to remember their life before they were 3.

If you’re interested in studying child psychology but don’t have time for a college-based course, MNT Training offer an online course that starts from only £180.

Our Level 3 OCN Child Psychology Course can be studied at any time from your home. There is no classroom attendance and you can study at any time you like. Subjects include theories of child development, teaching and learning, special educational needs, and managing behaviour.

Do you want to learn more about children’s nutrition?

Whether you work in a nursery, school or as a nanny, a knowledge of food and nutrition for children in their early years could be indispensable.

At MNT Training we have Early Years Food and Nutrition Courses that can be studied entirely online, including our extremely popular Level 3 OCN Child Nutrition Course.

Our Children's Food And Nutrition Courses - 16th October 2017

With child obesity being described as a ‘national emergency’, the need for greater clarity on food and nutrition is more important than ever.

Global childhood obesity has increased by tenfold over the past decade, and shocking figures have shown that 124 million children are now overweight. The global cost of this problem is due to hit unprecedented levels, with obesity-related illnesses costing $1.2 trillion a year from 2025, according to a report in The Guardian.

If you wish to study a Children’s Food and Nutrition Course online, this is one of the many subjects we offer at MNT Training.

In order to teach children about healthy eating, it’s important to start early as possible. With our online and flexible training, you can learn about children’s nutrition from the comfort of your own home.

Quality Childminding Courses Delivered Online - 9th October 2017

Do you love spending time with children and like the idea of working from home? In that case, childminding could be a brilliant career choice.

Caring for young children in your own home, childminders can give toddlers and babies an excellent start in life. So, what kind of qualities do you need for this kind of role?

Supporting their learning and development, childminders should have excellent communication skills and the ability to engage with young children. Childminding is not the same as babysitting and involves a great deal more commitment. You’ll also have to be relatively well-organised as you’ll be planning your own working hours, patterns and environment.

It also helps if you’re relatively fit as childminders do a lot of heavy lifting.

What do childminders do from day-to-day?

If you become a childminder, your day-to-day activities could include providing inspirational learning activities, organising play activities, planning and serving meals, changing nappies, taking children on outings, and taking older children to playgroup or school.

Since being a childminder can be highly flexible, it means you can easily be there for your own children, making it popular with stay-at-home parents. 

You will also need the ability to set up a home-based business, which our childminding courses can help you with. MNT Training have a range of childminding courses that can be studied online.

World Renowned Breastfeeding Training Courses - 21st August 2017

Experts believe that the UK’s attitudes to breastfeeding need to change, according to a recent report by The Guardian which has found we have one of the lowest rates of breastfeeding in the world. With many women who choose to breastfeed in public making the headlines, it’s clear that society is confused about this particular process.

In the UK, currently only one baby in three is being breastfed at six months, a number which drops to 1 in 200 at 12 months.

Breastfeeding is hugely beneficial, not only helping to protect a baby against infections but creating a strong bond between mother and child. It also lowers a child’s risk of having asthma or allergies, prevents ear infections and fights against respiratory illnesses.

One of the best ways to enhance your knowledge of this process is through one of our training courses at MNT Training.

Our breastfeeding courses are ideal for anybody looking to provide extra support to an expectant mother, giving you the skills and knowledge to help nannies, maternity nurses and doula’s, along with parents.

Our Breast Feeding Course is accredited by the Open College Network (OCN OTC) at level 3 and carries 6 credits.

Online Courses For Teaching Assistants - 31st July 2017

Teaching Assistants (TA) are the glue which holds a class together, providing invaluable support to both children and teachers.

Enabling children to overcome learning difficulties is the most rewarding aspect of this role. With class sizes ballooning, many pupils simply don’t get the support they need, so your contribution could make a real difference.

Variety is another big advantage to being a teaching assistant. You’ll find there’s no shortage of it within this role, with every day bringing unique experiences and challenges.

Being a teaching assistant also means ample opportunity to get creative and children will love it if you have a special skill. If you’re an amazing painter, you can get children enthused about art. Or if you play a musical instrument, you could spark their interest in learning one themselves.

At MNT Training, we have many courses suitable for Teaching Assistants, including:

These are just some of the exciting courses that can refine your skills and expand your knowledge.

Looking For Renowned Courses On Breastfeeding? - 24th July 2017

Breastfeeding is an important part of childrearing because the milk provides many benefits, including protecting a baby’s immune system.  It has been proven to help babies to fight viral, bacterial and parasitic infections, including respiratory tract infections and common colds.

Furthermore, breast milk has been found to reduce a baby’s risk of diseases in later life, including high blood pressure and type I and II diabetes. Formula milk simply can’t provide these same benefits.

Breastfeeding has also been found to benefit mothers, helping them return to their pre-baby weight and lowering overall postpartum blood loss. The process also creates a strong emotional bond between mother and child.

Do you want to improve your knowledge of breastfeeding?

At MNT Training our huge range of courses includes Level 3 OCN Breastfeeding which is ideal for providing better breastfeeding support, or for expectant mothers who have no experience in this process.

Study Children's Food And Nutrition Online - 8th May 2017

‘Investing in early childhood nutrition is a sure-fire strategy. The returns are incredibly high.’

Because children are still growing, food and nutrition is highly important for their development. Furthermore, kids are extremely active so they burn a lot of energy. A varied and balanced diet is essential for their well-being.

In addition, children are still learning to make choices with food, so it’s good to instil healthy eating habits at a young age. As a childcare professional, you can be highly influential in deciding which foods children eat, and educating parents on how to provide a balanced diet.

At MNT Training, we have many course on children’s food and nutrition, including our popular OCN Nutrition Course.

Good nutrition is vital for everyone, but especially children; it supports healthy growth and development, and encourages them to eat well when they’re older. It also reduces the risk of later health problems, such as cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis.

The old saying, ‘You are what you eat’ has a lot of truth to it.

Healthy eating also improves children’s concentration, with sugary foods well-known for making kids hyper. A good diet could make a huge difference to a child’s behaviour.   

Early years settings play an important part in promoting positive messages about healthy eating. Early Years Practitioners can also help parents learn more about providing a balanced diet for their child.

MNT’s Food and Nutrition courses includes OCN Child Nutrition, which provides the latest information on nutrition and safe eating.

Our Food Safety & Nutrition course will teach you about: Nutrition & Digestion, Food Safety in Early Years Settings, Special Dietary Needs and ‘Fussy Eaters’, and providing healthy snacks and meals in Early Years Settings.

This is an online course so perfect for busy learners. You might also be interested in our course for Weaning Babies onto Solid Food.

Need A Children's Food And Nutrition Course? - 12th September 2016

Sadly, one third of children are overweight by the time they’re eleven years old. With September being ‘Childhood Obesity Awareness month’ in America, now is a fantastic time to think about children’s nutrition.

Here in the UK, many people are worried that the government’s child obesity plan is being ‘watered down’.  For starters, the new sugar tax won’t be coming in for another two years.

With children, the best way to implement good eating habits is to start early.

Do You Need Childminder Training? - 4th July 2016

Childminders have never been more in demand, despite numbers of them having depleted in the UK: there are currently only around 42,000 childminders working in Britain.

Childminding is arguably the most flexible and personalised type of childcare, apart from the services of a nanny. Understandably, it’s extremely popular with parents. If you’re thinking of becoming a childminder, you’ll be in demand by parents and the government alike, who are currently promoting registered childminding.

With numbers of childminders declining every year, it’s likely your services will never go unneeded. The government is also likely to make childminding businesses more sustainable in the future.

MNT Training offer a variety of courses perfect for childminders.

Our courses include both introductory courses and those to keep your skills in check.

Introductory courses are usually a pre-requisite for childminders before they can register for Ofsted. Our training includes our Childminder Registration Course which can be studied from home. This is the ideal introductory course for anyone thinking of becoming a childminder. It will teach you how to set up a home-based business, along with the relevant aspects of childcare.

Learners praise us for this course being easy to follow, and for plenty of support being available if needed.

If you’re a qualified childcare worker, you can work anywhere in the world. Qualified nannies, for example, often end up working all over Europe.

So, what other benefits are there to working in childcare?

Working in childcare offers plenty of variety.

Firstly, there’s no doubt that working with children is extremely fun. Whether playing with them outdoors or reading classic stories to them, working with kids provides plenty of variety. Children are the most open minded, inquisitive and curious people on earth, so they make for great company.

Secondly, there are plenty of different types of settings in the childcare industry. Whether you want to work as a Nanny, in a private home; as a childcare worker in a nursery; or abroad at a children’s summer camp, the choice is yours.

‘Children are not things to be moulded, but are people to be unfolded.’

The perfect role for stay-at-home parents.

Childminders are indispensable childcare workers for busy parents, offering a home-based setting for childcare and looking after children of various ages. Many stay-at-home parents become childminders as it enables them to make extra money and see their own children at the same time.

A typical day as a childminder is likely to involve cooking for children, creative activities like storytelling and playing with kids, taking them to and from nursery school, and networking with other childminders. All in all, your role will be extremely varied. Officially, anybody who is paid for caring for one or more children under age 8, for more than two hours a day, should register as a childminder.

Reasons To Become A Nanny In 2016 - 6th June 2016

Are you considering becoming a nanny in the near future?

If you love children but get bored of routines, working as a nanny could be absolutely ideal. If there’s one thing which comes guaranteed, it’s that every single day will be different when working as a nanny. That includes getting paid to do fun activities with children, like baking, drawing or re-watching childhood movies. From playing board games to taking children on fun outings, there is definitely a lot of fun to be had.

Although it’s not all fun and games, nannies get to watch individual children grow and develop more than any other childcare worker. There are also often some huge perks to being a nanny; for instance, many families like you to accompany them on holiday, with all expenses paid.

Watching children grow and develop can be extremely rewarding. What could be more exciting than helping a child learn to talk? Or helping them take the first steps towards writing?

Whether you’re considering becoming a teaching assistant, nanny or nursery assistant, MNT Training have courses to suit anyone working in childcare, or looking to get started on a new career.

One of the biggest advantages of our online courses is they can be studied from home. So, if you don’t have the time for a full-time college course, they could be ideal. Affordable and flexible, our childcare courses build both confidence and careers.

The Fascinating World Of Child Psychology - 23rd May 2016

Do you want to develop your knowledge and understanding of children?

Children are one of the most fascinating age groups to study, because they open the debate regarding nature vs. nurture- how much our personalities are made by upbringing or genetics. Child psychology is therefore known as a type of ‘Developmental Psychology’.

A child psychologist diagnoses and helps to treat behavioural or emotional problems. They usually work in a variety of different settings, including children’s centres and schools, and sometimes even legal courts during divorce proceedings. They also work in conjunction with social workers to shed light on certain behaviours, and whether or not they’re related to mistreatment.

If you’re looking for child psychology courses, consider our Level 3 OCN Child Psychology Course at MNT Training. This course is ideal for anyone working in childcare, who wants to achieve a greater depth of understanding and knowledge. It’s also great for anyone thinking of becoming a child psychologist in the future.

Accredited by the Open College Network, the Level 3 OCN Child Psychology course covers: theories of child development; teaching and learning; special educational needs; and managing behaviour.

This course is delivered entirely online, and can be studied at any time.

Classroom Assistant Courses Delivered Online - 9th May 2016

Classroom assistants work closely with children to support their learning, and are often one of the most popular figures in the classroom- with both children and teachers.

Studies show that teaching assistants can significantly improve pupil’s results, according to The Guardian. The research proved that students make an additional two-four month’s progress, when small groups get help from classroom assistants. With so much evidence they improve results, many schools are looking to invest in TA’s.

Working as a classroom assistant can often be extremely flexible, with part time hours usually available. Whether you’re already in the classroom or looking to enter this profession, consider our classroom assistant courses.

On MNT Training we deliver both CACHE QCF Level 2 and 3 Teaching Assistant qualifications. Level 2 is ideal for those entering the classroom, while Level 3 is suitable for those already work in an educational environment.

Train To Become A Teaching Assistant This Spring - 25th April 2016

Did you know, the number of full time teaching assistants has more than trebled? According to The Guardian last year, since 2000 they have risen from 79,000 to 243,700.

Do you love working with individual children and have that nurturing touch? Do you enjoy being part of a family? Then you could have what it takes to become a nanny.

Typical tasks for a nanny often include: planning and cooking meals, playing with children and helping them learn, housekeeping activities, caring for the children during family vacations, disciplining children according to the family’s values, and providing transport to nursery or school.

Children's Food And Nutrition Course - 28th March 2016

With calls for powers to tackle childhood obesity, it’s clear that children’s nutrition is more important than ever, especially for those in their early years. During this time, children often pick up the eating habits which last for a lifetime.

The government has even recently introduced a sugar tax to help tackle this problem. Fortunately, child obesity rates are levelling off among children under 10, but it’s still higher than it should be. Children are also getting less exercise than in the past, thanks to increased use of technology.

Nurseries and schools are just some of the organisations who need to take action.

When working with children, it’s highly useful to undertake a course in Children’s Food and Nutrition.  This enables you to plan the healthiest and most nutritious meals possible.

At MNT Training our Level 3 OCN Child Nutrition Course can be completed entirely online, and consists of three units: The Digestive Process and Nutrition in Children, Management of Healthy Eating, and Special Dietary Requirements and ‘Fussy Eaters’.

This course considers the anatomy and physiology of the digestive process, along with the nutritional requirements for young children. It is ideal for any childcare practitioner, including those training to become a nanny or maternity nurse.

Since it’s an online course, it can be studied at home in your own time. 

Looking To Become A Nanny? - 21st March 2016

Being a nanny is rewarding, interesting and often fun, while being challenging at the same time. If you love getting to know individual children on a deeper level, this could be the ideal position for you.

At MNT Training we have a huge range of courses, ideal for nannies, including Common Core Skills, Sleep Training, Baby Care, Child Nutrition, Toddler Care, Managing Medication, and much more.

How to Become a Nanny - 15th February 2016

Children often remember their nannies their entire life- whether they were just around in early childhood or stayed into their adolescence. 

If you love working with children and like being part of a family, being a nanny could be ideal. Often, you will need to play the role of a parent during their mother and father’s absence. You will therefore play an important role in shaping a child’s early experiences.

Unlike working in a nursery, a nanny works closely with individual children, and can really get to know them.  Many nannies stay with the same family for years and become very attached to their charges, who they watch grow into young adults. If you like the idea of fostering a deep bond with a child, it could be the career path for you. 

So, how do you become a nanny?

While Mary Poppins flew in from nowhere, in real life you need good qualifications. Most parents prefer their nanny to be NVQ qualified or hold a degree in childhood education. 

At MNT Training we have many courses that can help you become a nanny, including a wide range of CACHE and OCN accredited training, such as Common Core Skills, CACHE Level 3 EYE Diploma, OCN Sleep Training, OCN Baby care, OCN Care of Multiples, and many more.

Children's Food And Nutrition Courses - 18th January 2016

Good nutrition in early years is highly important. It supports healthy growth and development, and encourages good eating habits later on. A good diet in early life helps prevent the risk of later health problems, such as cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis.

Healthy eating also improves children’s concentration, and therefore supports their learning.

Early years settings play an important part in promoting positive messages about healthy eating. It means you’re in a position to make a real difference. Early Years Practitioners can also help parents learn more about providing a balanced diet for their child.

From their snack to meal times, you can keep children happy and healthy, with MNT’s Food and Nutrition courses. These include OCN Food Safety & Nutrition and OCN Child Nutrition, both of which provide the latest information on nutrition and safe eating.

Children's Food And Nutrition Course - 23rd November 2015

Nutrition has always been a hot topic in the world of childcare.

With rising obesity rates, most parents want to make sure that children are eating a balanced diet, with plenty of fruit and vegetables. A good diet gives children the best start in life, and encourages them to eat healthily later on.

It can also directly affect their behaviour, with sugary foods leading to hyperactivity and poor concentration spans. Since young children usually eat at nursery during the week, it is essential that they are served nutritious meals every day.

If you’re looking to study children’s nutrition online, consider our OCN Nutrition course at MNT Training.

This popular course consists of three units: the Digestive Process and Nutrition in Children; Management of Healthy Eating; and Special Dietary Requirements & ‘Fussy Eaters’.  The latter includes covering food allergies and intolerances, whether it’s to gluten, wheat or dairy products.

Since this is an online course, it can be studied from the comfort of your own home. We also have additional courses which could also be relevant, including Weaning Babies onto Solids and Infection Control.

Child Psychology Training Courses - 11th May 2015

Looking for child psychology training? Want to study on a flexible and cost-effective basis?

Developmental psychology is the study of how and why people develop as they do.

All human development is fascinating but child development is particularly intriguing. This is thanks to the fact children’s cognitive abilities and personality are still developing. Although some like to argue that children are ‘blank slates’ when it comes to learning, there is no doubt genetics has a part to play in personality types.

If you’re looking to work with children, child psychology is an excellent area to study. By studying the way children grow and develop, you can better understand their behavioural traits and individual ways of learning. After all with children, all behaviour is a way of communication, even when it’s non-verbal. 

For one reason or another, many children don’t develop socially skills easily. Since such skills are a vital part of succeeding in life, using child psychology can make genuine differences to a child’s life. If you looking to move into this field, why not head to MNT Training? Our popular Level 3 OCN Child Psychology course is an excellent introduction to the subject. And since it’s an online course, it’s one of the most cost-effective, flexible ways of learning.
