Norland College, founded in 1892 by Emily Ward, is a provider of childcare training and education. Norland trainees are employed world-wide as nannies, nursery nurses and in other positions in a variety of settings for childcare.
Throughout its history the college has been based at various locations throughout the UK, notably Chislehurst in Kent and Hungerford in Berkshire, and is currently based in Bath. Originally the college contained daycare and boarding facilities for infants, and was a training college for nannies. Now the college at Bath is solely a training facility without integral childcare facilities.
