Annual Conference

Nanny of the Year™ Official Seal

As the 2013 International Nanny Association’s (INA) Nanny of the Year (NOTY) was being selected, the INA wanted to create a seal that represents what the Nanny of the Year™ means. We asked NOTYs and others who support the mission of the NOTY program what four words they think of when they heard “Nanny of the Year”. Many of the same words were mentioned. As one is selected to be the Nanny of the Year™, they become part of a unique family with fellow NOTYs.
