Get set for Snow

February 26, 2018 | Leave a Comment

Snow is forecast and more wintry weather is expected! Employers and Nannies, discover what needs to be considered…

Employers and Parents of Household Staff

If your nanny or housekeeper is unable to travel to work, you should advise and make them aware that unless specified differently in the employment contract:

  • In these circumstances, all time off will be unpaid unless agreed otherwise
  • The time taken off can be used as annual leave or, if preferred, the time can be made up by working additional hours.
  • Pay will paid on a discretionary basis and only in exceptional cases

It is important to be aware that if your nanny asks to leave work earlier than usual due to the weather conditions, the same conditions would apply.

If one of your nanny’s duties is to collect your children from school or drop them off in the mornings, they need to be aware of the places they can check to keep updated with last minute school closures.

For information from the school and nursery, always check:

  • The school and nursery’s website – all information is usually posted on the website to keep parents updated
  • Social Media – some schools use Twitter and Facebook to share announcements
  • The local radio stations – they usually announce school closures.
  • Your mobile phone – many schools send out text messages to inform you of the latest information

All schools and nurseries will have a procedure in place for such events. It is worth making sure your nanny is aware of what this is.

Have a snow and adverse weather plan in place!

Communication is key! Have a snow plan in place in case of any last-minute closures due to the weather. Some nannies are only employed to work before and after school. If this is the case for you, talk to your nanny to see if they can look after your children during the time they should be at school. Factors including additional pay need to be consider and agreed.

It is important to have a plan put in place for such events, as alternative options might need to be considered.

Employees and Nannies, Drive Safe

One of the most important things to remember is to only drive in the snow if the journey is crucial! Do not drive unless you have to – check the Met Office website and weather websites for snow warnings and advice. Be sure to call your employer and let them know that it’s unsafe for you to travel, don’t risk having an accident.

It is also a good idea to consider the possibility of staying over at your employer’s house. Think ahead, check the weather forecast and plan for adverse weather conditions.

Stay Safe in the Snow

Remember to ensure you keep safe and warm in the snow. The impacts of the cold weather are worse for young children, babies and those with pre-existing medical conditions.

Make sure you:

  • Stay tuned in to weather forecasts
  • Check and maintain daytime room temperatures of 21C
  • Check bedroom night time temperatures and maintain it at 18C or warmer
  • Keep warm and active and if you must go out, dress warmly and wear non-slip shoes.

The Importance and Benefits of Bedtime Reading

October 26, 2017 | Leave a Comment

Bedtime reading. An activity that many families share as part of their child’s daily bedtime routine.

But why? Why is it important to read to our children before turning the light out?

Whether it’s a short story, an educational or a chapter book, lots of fun can be had with reading.

Bedtime reading is an excellent habit to have, and here’s why:

  1. Children can learn so much

It’s true, children can learn so many different aspects from reading. A number of different life skills can be taught through books. Not only this, but it allows children’s imaginations to be opened up to a number of different things. Most children will become passionate about reading a book and will grow to love a certain character wanting to act them out or recreate a certain scene in the book.

Reading can also help children to build up and establish life values and morals. Books that are age appropriate are usually aimed to teach children different life skills. For example; how to treat others, what is important in life, and daily life events. Stories and books bring easily explain life expectations, in a way that children can grasp and understand.

  1. Children enjoy it

For many children, reading before bed, sparks a passion for books. With so many distractions in society today, from devices and tablets to television and gaming, it is important to encourage children to spend time away from the screen and get involved with reading.

  1. Establishes a bedtime routine

Bedtime reading can also help to sustain a suitable nighttime routine for your child. For some children, ‘story time’ before bed is their favourite part of the day. If you are finding that your child or charge is reluctant to go to bed, you can use this as a bribe.

  1. Special time together between a parent and their child

For many parents, bedtime reading with their child is a special time that is treasured. This is especially true for working parents, they are given the opportunity to spend time one to one with their child.

Reading with your child before bed is a precious moment that should not be taken for granted. Many children enjoy snuggling up in bed with their parent taking time out to read a story. Over time, an invaluable bond is built up.

  1. Relaxing

Spending time reading before bed, relaxes the mind and gives children the ability to switch off their brain from the day.

  1. Development

Not only is reading good for relaxing and teaching life skills, it can also help to stimulate your child’s emotion and development. Reading can help to prepare your child for their time at school, having the ability to read will give them a head start when the time comes. It is also great to continue reading throughout the duration of your child’s time at school. Children should spend around 15 – 20 minutes reading per day.

When you child is able to, encourage them to read to you. Not only does this build up their confidence with reading, but it also improves their speech development skills.

Don’t take reading with your children for granted. Enjoy these precious moments with them, watching them develop and grow. Spending time reading together before switching off the light, relaxes the mind and helps children to drift off to sleep.

Caring for our Planet

October 13, 2017 | Leave a Comment

Caring for the Planet

Climate change is happening and lots of environmental issues surround us each day; rubbish on the streets, shortages of water, and a rise in pollution. Unfortunately it is more or less impossible to solve the issue of global warming and climate change. However, by implementing small changes into your day to day routine and trying to live as Eco-friendly as you can, can help to result in a global change.

Eco – Friendly Parenting

Our world is full of harmful chemicals and toxins, so it can be helpful to know the changes that you can make to try and implement a greener lifestyle. We are able to offer advice and guidance on this through a number of different areas enabling natural parenting.

  • Natural baby care
  • Eco friendly nappies & nappy services
  • Eco friendly baby products, toys and clothing
  • Organic weaning
  • Natural Nurseries

To find out more about our natural parenting service, click here. You will also be able to book a consultation with a qualified Norland Nanny.

Encouraging children to care for our Planet

Children are the next generation, so it is important that they are aware how they can care for the planet. Encourage you children to have a go at:

  • Recycling – Encourage your children to recycle old materials and resources. You may have an area in your house when all recycling goes. Make your children are aware of this so they know that they don’t have to just put everything in the bin. It may also be a good idea to have a list of items that you can and cannot recycle with pictures. Children may find it easier knowing what they can and cannot recycle with the use of visual aids.
  • Re-using – See if your children are able to re-use materials instead of wasting them. This ties in with recycling items. Instead of throwing old materials away see if they can be re used for something else instead. Paper is a good example of this; instead of throwing away and old piece of paper, simply turn it over and use the other side.
  • Turing off the tap when cleaning teeth – making small efforts like this will slowly but surely reduce the amount of water wasted.
  • Picking up litter & using bins – Encourage children to always ensure they are using bins provided instead of dropping or leaving litter on the floor. If you spot any litter on the floor, try to make a conscious effort to pick it up and put it in the bin. No one likes to see litter lying on the floor, not only is it unattractive but it is also harmful to the environment.
  • Environmental projects – Encourage children to get involved with their very own environmental projects. For example: growing their own vegetable garden or creating a natural garden. These are fun ways for children to engage and get close with nature.

Many schools are now trying to be Eco-Friendly and are encouraging children to get involved. Children like to share what they are doing at school, at home. This is hugely important as it allows the message to spread around. Passionate children are able to make a difference.

Ecological Footprint Calculator tool

A great tool you can use with your children is an Ecological Footprint Calculator. This tool is hugely beneficial and can help them to gain a greater understanding about the impact of global emissions. Once you have filled out all the questions you are able to see your results. Talk them through your results and see if they are able to understand.

By making small changes we are able to help contribute to a more Eco – Friendly planet and a greener lifestyle. Encourage children to get involved and inspire the next generation.

Encouraging your children to eat healthy Food

October 13, 2017 | Leave a Comment

Healthy Eating and children

Trying to get your children or charges to eat healthy can be a constant battle. Children protest and refuse different things but eating their fruits and vegetables always seems to be on every parents list.

Children need healthy and nutritious foods in order to grow and develop. Most of the time parents and child carers have the right intentions of giving them the food that is good for them, however it is not always that simple.

The good news is, that there is a few things you can implement to encourage your child healthy.

Eat together

Children are usually more willing to try new foods when eating together as a family. This may not be possible to achieve every night as you may have a busy schedule or your child may be young so needs to eat earlier. However, take it gradually and may be try eating together once a week. Children are often influenced by what they see others eating so try and be a good role model to them by eating healthy. This will hopefully encourage them to do the same.

Be a creative chef

Be clever and sneaky. Try to swap out and disguise healthy foods with in your meal. If you have a ‘fussy eater’ within your family, this is the perfect way to get them to try new foods without them even knowing about it.

Let your child/ charge choose

Children tend to eat the foods that they choose. Offer a variety of different healthy foods and snacks and allow them to decide what they like and don’t.

A great way to teach children all about healthy eating is by taking them along to the supermarket and allowing them to choose from a variety of healthy foods/ snacks. Children are more likely to eat food that they are drawn to.

If you child/ charge is old enough, encourage them to help you out in the kitchen with the food preparation. Allowing them to get involved in the preparation can increase their interest and encourage them to try out new foods and flavors.

Be positive

Don’t give up, remain positive and optimistic. Understand that sometimes these things take time. It may take several attempts for them to try it before they grow to love it. It is important to never force your child/ charge to eat something they don’t want to. Go with their pace and always remain positive and optimistic.

Avoid bribery

Try and withhold offering bribes to them. Instead of offering bribes, offer foods that they do like alongside new ones to try and encourage them to try something new.

Dyslexia Awareness Week 2017

Why get involved in Dyslexia Awareness Week 2017? As a mother of a Dyslexic child I know that it is important to create a Dyslexic friendly society, and Dyslexia Awareness Week is the perfect opportunity to do just that! There are plenty of ways to get involved and plenty of resources available on the internet and in local Libraries, and schools.

The British Dyslexia Association has lots of ideas on their website, along with free downloads and a free toolkit. You can check out the daily themes from the British Dyslexia Association here.

I found the following important when I realised that my son had problems with reading and writing and recall;

Early Diagnoses

If you think that your child is having difficulties, don’t leave it to late! I found a local independent Dyslexia Consultant, who gave full diagnostic testing, alongside a plan of action for the school to follow. With this in place we could access dyslexia friendly teaching and support.

Reasonable Adjustments

It’s really important to ensure that all reasonable adjustments are made by school, society and at home to help your child reach their full potential. Don’t be afraid to ask for changes to be made!

Information and Strategies

Never underestimate the amount of information available out there! Along with strategies, the volume of information out there will best prepare you and will help you to create an accessible learning environment for your child, and will also help you to educate others on the importance of creating a Dyslexia friendly society for all!

The importance of staying safe in the sun

August 7, 2017 | Leave a Comment

Summer is here! With the warmer weather upon us, we are able to spend more time outside in sunshine, going for walks, playing in the park or in the garden. However, being outside exposed to the sun, does come with a huge responsibility. Keeping your children or charges safe in the sunshine.

UV radiation can not be seen or felt and has no relation to the temperature so it can be hard to know exactly when we have had ‘too much sun’

Overexposure can cause sunburn which resulting in redness and a great deal of pain. The skin turns red within 2 – 6 hours of being burnt. Sunburn then continues to develop over the next 24 – 72 hours. The changing colour of the skin signifies damage to the skin.

However, with that being said, it is still important to ensure that we do get some exposure to the sun. Small amounts of UVR exposure is the most effective way of boosting vitamin D supply.

Ensuring your children & charges are kept safe in the sun

1. Sun cream – An essential for anyone who is going to be exposed to the sun. It should be worn to keep skin protected.

  • Make sure it has a UVA symbol
  • The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) indicates the UVB protection that it offers. Make sure the sun cream you use, has a SPF of 30 or higher to ensure maximum protection
  • All sun cream should be applied 20 minutes before going outside.
  • All sun cream should be reapplied at least every 2 hours. If you find that your children or charges are sweaty, apply more frequently. Sun cream should also be reapplied after water exposure (swimming)
  • If you child or charge is exposed to water (swimming) make sure you apply a waterproof sun cream with an SPF of 15 or higher
  • Protect your lips by applying a lip balm with an SPF in it. Make sure the factor is higher than 30.

No one sun cream provides ultimate protection, so never just rely on applying sun cream to offer protection.

2. Wear protective, suitable clothing

  • Wearing clothing can be the most suitable and effective way of keeping skin safe in the sun as clothing acts as a barrier.
  • Make sure your child or charge is kept covered with loose, baggy clothing such as over sized t-shirts with sleeves.
  • Always make sure your child’s or charges shoulders are covered as they can burn easily.

3. Wear sunglasses – Protect your eyes from solar UV radiation

  • When it comes to purchasing a pair of sunglasses, it is important to remember the Eye Protection Factor (EPF). The EPF ranges from 1 to 10. Be aware that the higher the number, the better protection they will offer.
  • Make sure that the sunglasses fit your child or charge and are not too big or sliding of their face. Ensure that they are close fitting and wrap around the eyes.

4. Wear a hat – protect your face from the sun

  • A hat is a staple for all children. A wide brimmed hat is fantastic for providing shade to the face, neck and the ears.
  • When it comes to purchasing a hat, any ultraviolet protection fabric will provide sufficient protection.

5. Find a shaded area – Don’t spend an excessive amount of time in the sun, spend some time keeping cool

  • Between the hours of 11am – 3pm, the suns UV rays are at their strongest. It is a good idea to avoid the sun during this time. You can still enjoy the great outdoors, but remember to spend some time in a shaded cool area.
  • Even when spending time in the shade, it is always important to remember to apply SPF, wear sunglasses and a hat.
  • Babies and toddlers should be kept in the shade at all times.

Remember to keep cool and protected this summer. Make sure you are doing everything that you can to keep you child or charge safe in the sunshine. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your child is kept protected, whilst still enjoying the outdoors.

Top Tips for Starting School

August 7, 2017 | Leave a Comment

Starting School

For children moving on to primary school it can understandably be a scary time. This is true for parents as well. Every child will have a different experience when it comes to starting school, so sometimes it can be helpful to have a ‘helping hand’ and some advice available.

Tips to help your child with the transition:

Change can be a big thing for children and starting school is a big one. It may help to start to discuss the topic of school sooner rather than later so they are aware of what to expect. To help ensure a smooth transition, have a go at:

Chatting to them about school

Ask them questions like, ‘are you looking forward to starting school?’, ‘do you have any questions?’ or ‘what are you most or least looking forward to?’. Talking to them will help them to understand what they can expect and helps to answer any questions they might have.

Reading books that are all about starting school

In preparation for the first day, have a look into some books that are about going/ starting school. These are great to read to your children over the holidays or at bed time. They are specifically designed for children to help them to understand the process of going to school.

Visiting the school

Arrange a few organised visits to the school . Visit with your child so they are able to get a feel for what it will be like before their first day.

Getting into the routine

A good way to ensure an easy transition into school is to implement a simple morning routine. Have a go at practicing getting up at a certain time, getting dressed into uniform, eating breakfast and leaving on time to help build up a strong routine. Then have a go at making the journey to school so they are able to see how long it will take. It will also give them the opportunity to see what the journey to and from school will be like each day.

Enjoying your time off together

Prior to your child starting school, make plans for the remainder of the days that you have off together. Especially if your child is feeling a little anxious or worried, by taking part in a few fun activities it can help them to focus their mind on other stuff.

Not getting over emotional 

Children easily pick up on emotions. If you are anxious or worried this is not going to help your child. It is normal to feel worried for your child’s first day of school but try to relax and remain calm. This hopefully should then reflect onto your child.

 

Are you first day prepared?

Checklist: A few things to ensure…

  1. Have you bought all the necessary school uniform and PE kit?
  2. Is all their uniform and equipment labelled to prevent confusion and things getting lost?
  3. Does you child need a lunch bag or box and if, so have you got one ready?  For your child’s new adventure, it may be nice for them to have a new lunch box that they have chosen them selves.
  4. Do you need any other equipment? For example: a bag, a book bag, any stationary.
  5. Do you know who is going to be taking and picking up your child from school each day? It is a good idea to let them know each day who is going to be doing the ‘school runs’. You may have arranged for a nanny or a child minder to collect them from school each day. It is extremely important that your child is aware so they know you to look out for at the end of the day. It is also a good idea to let the school teachers know, so they can help your child find their guardian.
  6. Do you know your roll? Do you have to drop them off at the gates or in their classroom?
  7. Are the school aware of any medical conditions? This is an absolute must! The school needs to be aware of any medication to be administrated or what to do in case of an emergency.
  8. Does the school have your most recent contact information? An essential thing that needs to be done whenever you change or update your mobile number or email.

Make the Transition easier

Starting school for some children, will mark the first step to independence. For others it might just be a simple transition from Nursery to Primary School. You may be worried that your child may struggle to cope with the independence and not having you there to help carry out daily tasks.

To make the transition easier, make the necessary adjustments sooner rather than later. Have a go at practicing the tasks that you find your child struggles with in preparation for their big day. For example:

  • Going to the toilet
  • Washing and drying their hands
  • Opening their lunch box/ water bottle
  • Getting dressed after PE lessons.

Tackle any issues prior to their big day. This can help with any worry or anxiousness they might be having.

Starting school is undoubtedly a huge step. However, it is also a hugely exciting time as well. Make sure that your child has everything ready for their first day and all questions that they may have, have been answered. Enjoy the summer break and good luck to all children and parents kicking off this new adventure in September.

Morton Michel Annual Childcare Survey Findings for Nannies

July 11, 2017 | Leave a Comment

Morton Michel Annual Childcare Survey – The Key Findings

The results from the survey published by Morton Michel have been released. The survey, which was conducted between 1st August to the 2nd October 2016, involved 1,523 participants from varied sections of the childcare industry including Nannies.

Morton Michel have set out a in a new survey what all policy makers need to consider and be aware of in the childcare industry, including nannies.

The main aim of the survey was to be able to provide a set of data based of the various sectors within the childcare industry.

Childcare is one of the main center points in politics today and the importance of early years education has been highlighted as more important than ever before.

The Survey:

It is expected that this year, we will see the introduction of 30 free childcare hours in England. This policy is set to have a huge impact on the childcare industry and has the potential to change it. According to Morton Michel’s Survey, ‘two thirds of childminders and three quarters of nurseries have not ruled out offering the new entitlement’. However, many have said that they are not certain about this. Many have concerns regarding the new entitlement.

Funding concerns have been raised by people within the industry regarding this new entitlement. Results not only from the survey, but also from Social Media, have highlighted these. The Government has encouraged child care providers to offer chargeable extras, in the form of consumables or additional classes. This has been received in a mixed way, with many respondents not wanting to offer these.

With lots of issues being presented by the press, what makes people want to carry on in this industry? The survey asked respondents to rank the following 6 factors in order of their importance to remaining in the industry:

  • Career development

  • Professional support

  • Remuneration

  • Job satisfaction

  • Job flexibility

  • Professional respect

The outcome was that job satisfaction was considered the most important factor with the general consensus being that career development was the least important. This does not necessarily mean that career development is not important to childcare workers, it just highlights that to those who believe that career development is not as important, are more likely to say in the profession. However, policy makers and recruiters need to decide if enough is being done to entice new people to the industry.

Respondents who participated in the survey were also asked who provided the majority of their support across the sector. The general census was local authorities were the most common source. This was with the exception of nannies who stated that private providers were the most common source. Quality of these ratings came out as support provided by employers was rated the highest with private providers and local authorities closely following behind.

Nannies Responses

Nannies are also referred to as Home Childcarers, especially if they are registered with Ofsted on the Voluntary Ofsted Childcare Register. Within the survey nannies highlighted the need for regulation, registration and official status. Please note that the responses are from nannies who have taken out Nanny Insurance with Morton Michel, and may therefore be biased toward professional and qualified nannies.

According to the survey’s results, nannies mainly work in one household. 22% of nannies said they work in two, and 6% in 3 or more. Nannies tend to work in households with more than one child, with just 4% looking after only one child. 27% look after 4 or more children!
Only 10% are ‘live in’ nannies, with the rest having their own home elsewhere. Despite not needing to register with Ofsted, the nannies who responded to Morton Michel’s survey are mainly all well qualified. 41% hold a level 3 childcare diploma, while nearly 10% hold a relevant degree-level qualification. However, almost 25% hold no qualifications at all.
The childcare sector is in the spotlight now like never before with the advent of the 30 hours provision and childcare choices, and its contribution and importance to the country is widely acknowledged. It is now more important than ever that sector voices are heard and listened to.
