Summer camp

 

We have all been feeling the effects of Covid and the quarantine. As our Governor begins to open up more businesses, many still feel that the best course of action is to stay with social distancing, and are not quite ready to go exploring just yet.   TLC has active caregivers ready to give your kids some  summer backyard fun.

 

We at TLC understand!  We have caregivers ready to help with filling your child’s time with fun, creative, learning activities while you work from home. Summer is just around the corner, and we are ready! If you need Summer help, please reach out to us. We have all learned to adjust to this new way of life. Our Camp@home program provides fun for the kids, learning activities, and maintains social distancing with just one specific caregiver coming to your home to avoid contact with several people. Our camp at home program also provides you a little relief.

 

I have been spending a lot of time with my niece during this time. She is so fun is perfect and loves fun backyard activities!  Some of these include:

 

  •  The sprinkler has been a huge hit lately on these hotter days. We play “different ways to jump through the sprinkler.” This includes  silly walks, jumps, skips, crawls and other ideas to get from one side of the sprinkler to the other.  

 

  • We also love hide and seek. This game has always been a favorite of mine and a great fun way to enjoy your backyard. When the kids are little, they always give themselves up with giggles. As they get older, the creative places that they find to hide are so interesting! 

 

  •  Tag is always a ton of fun. We have an ongoing game, so when I have to leave, one of us is always left being “it.” When we get to see each other again, the game picks back up each time! We go “on hold” when needed. 

 

  • Rolling in the fresh cut backyard grass is something I remember doing as a child. The smell still brings such nostalgia. 

 

  •  Finding different insects to study. My niece is very much into Monarch butterflies. She and her mom and dad planted milkweed for the caterpillars to eat and make their chrysalis’. It has been so fun to watch them become Monarch butterflies and move to the other side of her backyard where there is a huge butterfly bush for them to get their nectar. 

 

These are just a few of the ways to help kids get exercise, get outdoors and be active this summer!  Please remember to contact TLC for help with one of our qualified, local, and wonderful caregivers!

Wedding season is almost upon us! Many parents often face the dilemma of what to do with their children when it comes to wedding season, especially when kids aren’t invited  to  attend the ceremony.  Adding to that concern is when families need travel for destination weddings with kiddos in-tow. But now wedding sitters gives parents a way for their little ones to be included in the  big day without the worry of tantrums or distractions during the event. TLC Nannies and Sitters provides special wedding babysitters and in-room hotel sitters. TLC sitter’s  make the experience both safe and fun for the kids. This service has become almost a norm for millennial weddings, but I can see why it’s so popular – no one wants a toddler screaming through the service! Weddings are such beautiful events, and we’re glad that people are finding ways through the site to make sure no one misses out.

TLC recently provided five sitters at the History Museum in Forest Park. The bride was so thankful to get everything arranged ahead of time, and the kids enjoyed their own dinner and some fun games while the adults had their fun in another room. The parents were so happy to be able to relax and dance while they knew their kids were well cared for.

However, some parents feel better booking their own one-on-one sitter in their hotel room so they can go to sleep at their normal time. This is especially important with babies. TLC sends hotel sitters to the hotel room, where they can ensure a quiet bedtime, and mom and dad can stay out as late as they like!

Whatever your wedding child care needs, TLC has you covered. Give us a call today and learn more.

Spring Break is a fun, and busy, time of the year! Whether you are going out of town for a warm getaway, or having a stay-cation  TLC for Kids can help you with your Spring Break needs.

1.            Pet and House Sitter

Lots of families go on vacations for Spring Break. But not every vacation is inviting for your four-legged friends. Instead of taking your family pet to a pet daycare, have a sitter come to your home. Your pet will receive the same attention as if you were home with them. And a TLC sitter can do more than just watch your pet. They can also stay at your house to keep everything safe and allow you to enjoy your vacation without worrying.

2.            Bring a Sitter on Vacation

Did you know TLC sitters are available to travel with your family on vacation? Families often fill their vacation schedules with activities for the kids. But TLC for Kids recognizes parents need a vacation for themselves, too. Bringing a TLC sitter or nanny a long gives parents the flexibility to see places they are interested in, have quiet meals at adult places, and know their kids are being cared for by someone they trust and their kids are comfortable with (remember you can request your favorite sitters anytime you need a TLC nanny).

3.            Sitter/Chauffeur

If your kids are out of school for the week, but you still have to work, don’t worry! With TLC for Kids, you can hire a nanny for the entire week. Our sitters can come to your home with activities to keep the kids entertained while they are away from school. TLC sitters also have reliable and insured forms of transportation, so the nanny can take your kids to places around the city or to and from their practices/school events.
