Waiting for May Flowers: Exploring Nature at Preschool

In many parts of the world, it’s cold out there right now! While that can’t last forever, it’s hard to find a good place for preschoolers to go that’s not, well, preschool. But even when there’s a nip in the air, and it’s all so intimidating, the great outdoors are still worth considering — for their health, for their mind, and of course, for their enjoyment!

Before going out and exploring nature with the kids at your nursery, keep safety in mind! Fill up a backpack with water, snacks, blankets and an age-appropriate book, depending on your specific needs. Check in with parents to see if their children can and should take allergy medicine, and if so, what brand.

Working Mum

Life as a Working Mum

It has never been easy to be a working mother. For a long time, a mum who worked was unheard of or frowned upon. It was considered ‘irresponsible,’ and the children of these working women were viewed as being robbed of proper childcare and a decent upbringing. While we know today that this simply isn’t true, and we do not give nearly enough credit to the woman who works a full day and returns home to care for her children at night. For them, the work never seems to truly end. They often feel the guilt and stress that society puts upon them when they choose to divide their time, so how can you, as a dedicated working mother, balance life at home with life in the work force?

Because parents placing their children in your care are likely to be busy with their own set of tasks for the day, it is imperative that they be notified as soon as possible, and a phone call made far down your list may come too late for them to make alternate arrangements.
