Rubbish rainy weather means snuggling indoors with a good book. This is our flavour of the day, 'Samson- the mighty flea!' It's a story about how important friendships are with some pretty cute characters. What are your favourite rainy day stories?

Freckles Kaya nannies are all about enabling children with their development and independence. It definitely means cleaning up a lot of fromage frais and messy faces, but it's totally worth it! .

Yay Friday! What are your plans for the weekend? It's super cold, so we're trying out some lovely playdough winter warmers. Beef bourguignon anyone? .

This fab glitter bottle is one of the many elements of the Kaya Nanny toolkit and fantastic for anxious children!
When the water in the bottle is settled, you can explain that it's like a clear mind and the glitter at the bottom are our worries and thoughts. As you shake it and the glitter starts to cloud the bottle (super relaxing to watch btw) it gets harder to see through and more chaotic- much like an anxious mind. The key thing is that once you stop shaking it, the glitter does settle again and you are able to see clearly again! Those worries and thoughts aren't gone, but taking a moment to pause can help process these thoughts and worries more easily.
We make sure every #kaya nanny receives training in Emotional Wellbeing and Resilience delivered by @drmaryhan to ensure we can provide the best childcare possible.

Phew! Indoors now away from Storm Eleanor after a day in the park and at the City farm.We loved the goats taking Christmas leftovers to the next level and munching the old Christmas trees! These first few days of 2018 have definitely blown away the cobwebs, but it's nice to be running around again.

"I was having trouble finding the perfect person to help me at home and then I met Jo from Freckles. She took all the stress away and found me a wonderful Kaya who is now part of our family."
