Why I Chose Elite

The weekend of October 26-27th, 2019 I participated in the Live Foundational Training with Newborn Care Solutions at the White House Nannies office in DC. I was blown away by Tonya’s vast amount of wisdom and expertise. The individuals enrolled in the course were impressive. Investing in professional development has always been important to me. At the end of the course the Elite program was mentioned. I am generally quite frugal, so it seemed unattainable at that moment. I said to myself, “maybe one day”.  

When the inaugural NCS Enrichment Conference was announced I jumped on the opportunity because Newborn Care Solutions focuses on excellence. During the conference I chatted with current and Master level students, as well as graduates of the program. They gave me their honest feedback and encouraged me to apply. I didn’t actually plan on applying so swiftly. I’m cautious and usually need a roadmap before I comfortably begin something new. The last evening of the conference I won a $500 giftcard to any NCS program (including Elite). It was such a generous gift, but I didn’t know how I was going to make it work within my schedule. I opted to reach out to Tonya. I sent her a note and we scheduled a call. We discussed how the program could be transformative, but she didn’t sugar coat the effort involved. The program is what you put into it. I applied and began Elite year one January of 2023. 

It is now application time for Elite year two. I learned from my amazing friend, coach and mentor Crystal Gail that before you do ANYTHING you should be extraordinarily clear on your “why”. Why is this important to you? Once you are confident in your “why”, it is imperative that you reevaluate it annually. This past weekend I took a backpacking trip that allowed me loads of time to reflect and set goals for the following year. 

Here are the reasons I am applying for Elite year two:

  • We meet monthly and are given the tools and education to assist with providing exceptional care for the next generation. 
  • Year two focuses exclusively on in-depth knowledge related to newborns. 
  • Our assignments are practical and tailored towards authentic circumstances. We are able to learn new concepts and how to actively apply them. 
  • We have unlimited email access with Tonya and other NCS instructors to answer pressing questions. 
  • The Newborn Care Community of students and graduates provide support by relating to the challenges and benefits of this profession. They also operate under strict confidentiality so you are able to feel safe sharing your thoughts. 
  • The program is designed with benchmarks that set you up for success. You are consistently setting strategic goals and accomplishing them on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis. It is amazing to be surrounded by individuals who are intentionally pushing themselves to be better. 
  • I am challenging myself to rethink preconceived notions and ideas. Often, we look for research and knowledge that support our current opinions. I actively want to test those beliefs. 
  • My cohort is committed to personal growth and transformation. We chat almost daily using various channels of social media. We overcome challenges together as we learn and grow. Life doesn’t pull punches. Having a community of solution finders is a breath of fresh air. 
  • Tonya shared this quote and it has stuck with me. “A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether.” -Roy H. Williams 
  • The benefits of attending the Retreat have been highlighted by past Elite and Master level students. I look forward to participating this year.   

The Elite NCS™ program has transformed my life and improved multiple facets of my caregiving practice. If the program is even the slightest bit interesting to you I encourage you to talk to previous students and/or email the office at info@newborncaresolutions.com
