''I have just completed the first part of the new NANNYGUARDS training offered through Athena Academy.
As this was the first training class of it's kind, geared towards the nanny industry, I was very excited and nervous to participate.
Nervous because we knew it would have things in it that would have to be fixed so the following classes could learn from our mistakes and excited to finally have a way to empower myself on the job. However, the training ended up being very on point and even more than I had hoped for.
At the end of each day, there was much discussion about things we would never have thought of, that this class brought to the forefront and really made all the participants think about their daily schedules and duties.
On Monday, following the weekend class, there was talk all across the nanny boards on Facebook about all the ways we were changing our habits and all the information that we were putting into practice. Simple things, like backing into a parking space, curtains open in certain rooms in the home, driving different routes to school and classes...the changes in our habits were almost instantaneous and have continued throughout the nanny community as we talk about what we learned and how much we are looking forward to continuing the training throughout all the different levels.
Thank you so much for offering this training for our industry and I look forward to joining the next class.

''NannyGuards and Athena Worldwide LLC and in particular, Denida Zinxhiria proved to be very professional, efficient, and very crucial to my multilevel nanny training. The NannyGuard course of Athena Academy gave me not just an extra qualification but a life-saving skill. The valuable awareness of the surroundings and the ability to identify possible threats for the children in my care and for myself. Moreover, she matched me with the right family straight away and I was able to use the theory in practice within months.
NannyGuards and Deni took the time to make sure that my placement was rolling successfully and that my performance was up to their standards. I would trust their positions and placements at all times knowing that they have been checked and double-checked. Thank you, NannyGuards. Thank you, Deni.''
