Taking my babies out of daycare in July was challenging for me to do from a parent’s perspective. We finally had our nanny with us and financially it made sense for them to be home. In this podcast, I talk to you about some of the struggles we had with taking them out of daycare and ways in which we tried to “mimic” some of the great teachable learnings.
My husband and I also speak about some of the products we purchased so that we continued to have our children’s milestones and development flourish while in the comfort of their own home. The nearby Early Years Centre helped to provide a very similar environment for our children that they were used to in daycare and most importantly helped Sats and I realize some of their favourite things to do during creative play. These learnings helped focus our purchases to a paint set that contained water colours (so less mess for all us OCD parents) (ca/us), smocks (ca/us) and a water/sand box (ca/us) with some really cool sand (ca/us)!
We would love to hear from our listeners on some of the things you do with their toddlers to help keep their developmental momentum going; remember our best source of information is from people like ourselves…parents!!!!
We look forward to hearing from you. Until then, stay happy, stay healthy and stay hopeful.
