College Nannies and K12 Inc. Combine Childcare and Online Learning to Support Families as Schools Start at Home

K12 will provide caregivers with training and resources for effective online learning

DENVER, Aug. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With schools around the country starting the school year online, College Nannies + Sitters + Tutors is expanding solutions to support families and students. College Nannies will work in connection with K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN), the nation's leading provider of online and blended education programs, to train nannies to serve as Learning Coaches as students start the school year at home.

"We're in thousands of homes a week, listening to parents' needs and we know firsthand this is the solution," says Joe Loch, Brand President of College Nannies. "Families need a caregiver they trust who can also help students navigate this new world of e-learning. We are now able to offer one solution to both needs from the safety of each family's home."

College Nannies is the largest employer of nannies, sitters and tutors in the United States. In 2019 alone, they provided 2.3 million hours of in-home care. K12 has delivered online education to millions of students across the country for more than 20 years and has worked with more than 2,000 schools and districts in all 50 states to help develop local solutions that meet online and blended learning goals.

K12 will provide College Nannies with training and ongoing development opportunities in order to serve as effective Learning Coaches while providing the quality care families are accustomed to. The training is designed to help children in support of their own school's curriculum. This allows parents to focus on their jobs, including those working from home.

"K12 is proud to work in connection with College Nannies at a time when millions of families are facing unprecedented challenges in balancing home, work and learning," said Scott Durand, K12's Senior Vice President and General Manager of Learning Solutions. "We are demonstrating our shared commitment to put families at the forefront of modern education by bringing together the best of teaching and learning with caregiving, all for the benefit of the student and family."

Loch says, "Parents were overwhelmed this spring when schools suddenly closed and they were responsible for teaching their children during the workday. We created this solution so we don't have a repeat of that situation this fall."
