We are registered with the Health Department and I have attended the practical course “CHILD  AND INFANT  CPR”  in accordance with the standards and guidelines of the Resuscitation Council of Southern Africa. We have three staff members and care for infants and toddlers up to the age of 3 years. Close to 20 years experience. We are situated in PARKDENE, BOKSBURG.  We operate all year round with a break in December, week over the Easter public holidays and weekends. Any deviation will be discussed and agreed upon with the parents. Laughter, learning and lots of love!! We are a family – thus the term “Daymother”. It is not about how big a playroom we have or how many staff and toys the children has to play with, we are about caring, sharing and laying a solid foundation at a time when it matters. We are caring for little individuals with a common goal to become independent, sociable and caring little people with confidence and readiness to face the next phase of their lives when the time comes. Teething “Myths & Facts” Different children get teeth at different times, but first teeth usually appear between 6 and 10 months. In some children, teeth appear as early as three months. In others, they don’t arrive until around 12 months. Many people think that ‘teething’ children: • cry a lot or seem extra cranky. • don’t feed as well as usual. • suck on objects such as toys, dummies and bibs. • have more dirty nappies more often & pull the ear on the same side as the tooth coming through. There’s debate about whether these signs are caused by teething. They might just be a normal part of development or a result of minor infections and illnesses. If your child isn’t well, it’s always best to take her to the doctor, especially if she has a fever or diarrhoea, or you’re worried about any other symptoms. Getting Toddlers to Stay in Bed Bedtime for the kids means “me time” for Mums and Dads! But learning to stay in bed can take time, and even good sleepers can change their habits overnight. The Stay in Bed Technique is a method used in the Super nanny show to help families get an uninterrupted evening and a good night's sleep… Once a child has his own bed, climbing out to pay you a visit could become hisfavourite game, especially if the effort pays off with a night in Mum and Dad’s bed. Even good sleepers can change their habits at different stages in their development and this may be disruptive for siblings not to mention the parents! Be consistent and follow these steps and you should create the right environment for your child to stay in his own bed all night.
