Loving Nannies Safety Information During COVID-19

  Here at Loving Nannies, we have been emphasizing the importance of coronavirus safety precautions to all of our nannies. Daily routines such as wearing a mask, frequent hand washing, using sanitizer when necessary and most importantly-social distancing, can be very important in their non-nanny lives. We talk to all of our nannies about the specific precautions they are taking and if they have been exposed to anyone that may have had the virus and if they have traveled recently. We also have a serious talk with each nanny about minimizing the risk of getting the virus and ask important relevant questions such as who they live with and if that person(s) is in contact with others or works in/outside the home, travels etc. We also want to know if they will be working for more than one family and who, if anyone, they are in contact with on a regular basis (friends, significant others, extended family etc). We have each nanny sign a COVID-19 good faith agreement that states that each nanny will take all precautions necessary to ensure the safety of themselves and the family they will be working for.  Loving Nannies Safety Information During COVID-19 In order to better serve our families and nannies during this time of need, we have compiled some safety information in regards to COVID-19.  First and foremost, a nanny should stay home and not care for any children if they suspect they may be getting sick. If a nanny develops any symptoms, they should not go to work. Nannies should self-quarantine if they believe they have been in contact with anyone who is...

The “summer slide” and what it means for your child You may be asking yourself, what is the “summer slide”? Is it a fun new attraction in San Diego? A rentable toy for a summer birthday party? Well, it’s not. In fact, the “summer slide” refers to the unfortunate summer learning loss that happens to students during summer break.

7 Effective Healthy Eating Habits for Kids (and Parents)

7 healthy eating habits for kids of all ages So your kid won’t eat the pile of greens on their plate, what’s new? They pass the mound of vegetables every time, hoping you don’t notice. But, you do, and you’re getting frustrated. Don’t worry; you’re not alone. This unavoidable struggle of finding (and maintaining) healthy eating habits for kids happens with all children.
