Nanny Tip of the Week! Be part of the solution! Part of being a nanny is making life easier for the parents. It’s so important to be a part of the solution and not adding to problems in the household. Look for opportunities to make a difference. Did you hear mom and dad talking about that much needed date night? Offer to work a Saturday night! Is the mini-van full of empty water bottles, shoes, and crunched up crackers? Take 10 minutes out of your day to tidy things up. Is the child struggling with reading and you just happen to know some fun literacy games? Share them! These little gestures will go a long way 🙂
Nanny Tip of the Week! Carry sunscreen that contains both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide on you at all times. Please make sure to apply sunscreen to all of the children in your care at least 30 minutes before you go outside. Make it fun by drawing letters or shapes with the lotion and let the child rub it in those easy to reach areas. The back of the knees, ear lobes, and neck are often forgotten about, but these areas can burn easily. If a child is wearing pig tails or double french braids, don’t forget that part line. Scalps burn easily. Use lip balm! Nobody likes chapped lips. Reapply, reapply, reapply. Stay safe, healthy and comfortable this summer 🙂
Nanny Tip of the Week! While interviewing, please make sure your cell phone is on silent. It may even be a good idea to leave your phone in the car. While working, please make sure you have an appropriate ringtone. It would be quite embarrassing if something with vulgar words started playing, and it could cost you the job. Always be professional.
Big Sunday is always a memorable event! We have been volunteering for Chai Lifeline for the past 5 years building
“Bundles of Happiness” for children with life-threatening illnesses. A HUGE THANK YOU to all the volunteers who donated their time on Cinco de Mayo. The day was a success!
What a gorgeous day in Burbank to volunteer! Today, we participated in Relay for Life to support one of our parents who lost their father to cancer. Here’s some fun pictures from the day. Our Founder, Ryan, is hugging “Baby Jake” who she cared for when he was only 5 months old and he is now 5 years old. Little Buddy 🙂
