The notebook was penned by Emily Ward in 1892 as a 'spoonful of advise' to the new starters at Norland College. Norland went on to become an elite training school for nannies hired by the wealthy, royalty and oligarchs. She created the school for nursery nurses in distinctive uniforms to be employed by wealthy families to take some of the pressure off mothers. Emily kept a note book which doubled as a diary and training manual which laid out her vision for the academy and what is expected of all students. The notebook, which has been seen for a century, has now been found in a dusty box in an attic at the college's current HQ in Bath, Somerset.
