I love getting her weekly email about their Discover and Learn activities. She and Nanny Paula have graciously agreed to share it with all of you today.
by Nanny Paula and Nanny Gael Ann
Once a week Nanny Paula and I get our charges together and do what we call “Discover and Learn”.
Based on a fun kid friendly theme we enjoy a morning of age appropriate activities and learning experiences. Depending on the theme of the week you might find us doing a craft project, cooking, or exploring a science concept.We like to include stories, songs, games, creative activities or an outing to further our “studies” of the topic of the week. Our Discover and Learn mornings end with a shared brown bag lunch.
By pre-planning themes a month in advance we have time to gather materials we already have, purchase any additional craft supplies needed, borrow a book/CD/DVD from the library, or prepare projects that need a little set up time.
I try to capture some of our fun with digital photos and short video clips which then get emailed to the parents, grandparents and assorted interested friends so they can share in our adventures each week.
