Finding Summer Child Care in Boston
When school breaks for the summer and the warm weather hits, it’s an exciting time for your little one! But as a parent, it can bard to be as excited if you have a full-time job and a little one that is looking to have a fun summer. Whether you are starting the process early or feel like you are scrambling for child care, we can help you find the perfect fit for your children and your family. Here are a few of the summer fun activities perfect to arrange for your children and nanny.
For some kids, their summer days are full of sports camps and practice with friends. Athletics are a fun way to spend their days but can call for a hectic schedule. It’s a good idea to have set transportation to and from their practices or days at a sports camp. Consider your daily schedule and if it is possible to add in drop-offs or pick-ups.
If you are looking to hire a nanny to help bring your child to and from camp, be sure they are licensed and have a safe car to drive your child to and from their busy day.
If you have a pool in your backyard, you know it’s the perfect way for your child to spend their day splashing in cool water on a hot summer day. Some swimming lesson instructors will come to your backyard pool to help teach your child to swim, and it is a great summer activity. But, it’s essential to have someone at your home throughout the day that can jump in and help if your child has an accident in the pool.
If you find yourself with your own busy schedule, consider hiring a nanny to be at your home for the day and during swim lessons. Be sure they are lifeguard and CPR certified. It will give you peace of mind when your little ones are spending the whole day in your backyard pool.
If your child (or children) loves to swim but finds yourself without a pool to spend their days in, opt for a swimming camp that is close by and will allow your nanny to easily drop-off and pick-up. They will get to meet friends while learning how to better their swimming skills.
Zoos, museums, libraries, and even community centers often have weekly or daily activities planned when schools aren’t in session. While some community activities may have full summer opportunities, you can take advantage of their daily activities and events for kids. It could be a fun way to expose your child to hands-on learning activities to help them learn and have fun during their days off! Check their schedule beforehand and schedule the event in your calendar (or your nanny’s) so the kids can get excited about their next adventure!
Does your child love music or arts and crafts? Consider adding it into their summer life this year. Whether you sign them up for a summer camp or weekly lessons, they will be able to expand their skills on an instrument or drawing. It’s a fun way to spend their day while learning more about a skill they may not get to do during the school year.
Whatever you choose to do this summer, it’s always helpful to have a nanny that you love to help drop off and pick up, coordinate activities and create a fun and safe environment for your children.
