Los Angeles Award Program Honors the Achievement

LOS ANGELES November 18, 2015 — Educated Nannies has been selected for the 2015 Los Angeles Award in the Child Care Agency category by the Los Angeles Award Program.

Each year, the Los Angeles Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Los Angeles area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2015 Los Angeles Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Los Angeles Award Program and data provided by third parties.

The Los Angeles Award Program is an annual awards program honoring the achievements and accomplishments of local businesses throughout the Los Angeles area. Recognition is given to those companies that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value.

The Los Angeles Award Program was established to recognize the best of local businesses in our community. Our organization works exclusively with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations and other business advertising and marketing groups. Our mission is to recognize the small business community’s contributions to the U.S. economy.

The ‘Thanks’ in Thanksgiving

The ‘Thanks’ in Thanksgiving

It is November and in a few short weeks, Thanksgiving will be upon us! Last year we blogged about compassion, caring and gratitude here and this year we want to build on that. It’s easy to get swept away worrying about all the details that make Thanksgiving dinner come together, but we have a few ideas and fun activities that can help you slow down, have fun and savor this whole month!

A “thankful” jar: Throughout the month of November, each member of the family can write down one thing they are thankful for every day. Then, the family member puts it in a “thankful jar” (bonus points if it’s decorated!) and reads each entry before the feast on Thanksgiving. It’s a great way to look back on all the moments of gratitude that month!

Be present for big and small moments: Since it’s easy to fall into a routine and forget the details of everyday life, this little change can make a huge impact. If the kids bring home Thanksgiving crafts, ask if they can teach you how to do it and recreate the craft at home! If they can’t remember, we have a great craft in our newsletter that is fun for both adults and kids. Also, asking about the little details of their day is fun for them to recall and great for adults to know what their little ones are doing! To sign up for our newsletter please click here and go to the bottom right of the page.

Include the kids: Tackle a creative project with the kids! They will love feeling included, and it’s one less thing you have to do alone! Some of our fondest memories involve helping in the kitchen on Thanksgiving. Standing on a step-stool rolling out dough for the dinner rolls, and helping pour pie mix were some of my favorites that I still do every year (without the step-stool now, ha! ). If your little helpers aren’t ready for the kitchen yet, you can venture to a farmers’ market or pumpkin patch with them to find something that gives their personal touch to the tablescape.  

Thank those around you: Take this time of year to let those around you know how important they are! Tell your partner, your kids and even your favorite Starbucks barista how grateful you are that they are in your life. Most importantly, let your nanny know how important she is to your family. The relationship we have with our nannies is so incredibly special, and a simple thank you will go a long away this holiday season.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Thanksgiving!
