Infants / Heating milk
« Last post by laurarna87 on February 13, 2017, 12:10:49 PM »
Hi moms! Let me introduce me, Iím Laura, the proud mom of Ryan, a big handsome boy (4,1 Kg). Heís almost 2 weeks now, and I couldnít be happier for having him. I wanted to rise what it would sound trivial for most of you, but it is a mystery for me. How do you heat your babyís milk? And how do you check that it has the perfect temperature for your babies? I know that there are several ways of heating: water-bath using stove, microwave, electric baby-bottle heatersÖ but what do you use? Why? Is there something healthier (less bacteria or something) than others? And then, how do you check the milkís temperature? Do you just test it on your hand? Taste it? Use an infrared thermometer? What is it better and why? Thanks in advance. Laura
Kindergarten / Full Day 5 Times a week kindergarten?
« Last post by Samz on January 26, 2017, 10:14:05 PM »
 Hey fellow educators,

I am actually reaching out to you to get some advice on starting a Full day 5 times a week Kindergarten based out of my home. I am a certified Elementary teacher in Saskatchewan and have 7 years of experience in Elementary education. my son is ready to go to Kindergarten starting Sept 2017. Looking into Kindergarten programs available through out the city, I have noticed that there is not one Kindergarten which is full day full time, which means that I would have to pay daycare fees as well as daycare fees for my daughter (full time). Hence, I was considering running a Licensed Full Time Full day kindergarten from home. I would teach the outcomes from the Kindergarten curriculum as well as a little extra depending on the group of kids that register. I would however, be sending my daughter (15 months) to daycare full time so I could run a proper school just for kindergartners. My question to you you think that this model will work? In talking to parents, have you ever come across parents mentioning that they would enroll their child in a full day 5 days a week kindergarten or that they are looking for one? I realize that there are many day cares that accept Kindergarten children but they are all play based. Mine would be more academic focused.

Thank you in advance
Health / Re: Is mildew bad for my child?

If it's black mold, that does give off toxic fumes and should be dealt with. Any mold or mildew should be cleaned up, but the black mold is the worst.

Very helpful, me and my husband do want to open a daycare, still in planning stage.

Planning is good. Many people just get an idea and jump in. Those ideas rarely ever work. Good luck.
Health / Is mildew bad for my child?

Hi everyone, I am expecting to give birth to our first child and me and my husband are worried that the mildew in our basement can effect the health of our baby, we have closed down the basement since we started to feel the smell but it is getting stronger by each passing day, if this will be bad for health we can hire a company to get rid of this issue, since my cousin works there so we he will take care of it for us. What do you suggest?

Running a Daycare / Day care's first anniversary celebs
« Last post by ericaa on November 18, 2016, 05:29:34 AM »
Hi all,
I am a teacher at a local day care school nearby. We have classes upto std 5 only. Now we are celebrating our first anniversary the coming month. So, we are having a program, and we teachers are planning to give the kids small gifts each, like a goodie bag, with pencils, erasers and other such small small items. So, we want to have them packed beautifully. There are around 200 kids, and so we want some packaging company which will do this for us in bulk. I was looking online, and have found Clearpak, they have thransparent packing, and it looks good. Now, we have to arrange for some games for the kids as well, could anyone suggest any games which we could conduct at our program ? Also, has anyone hired any such packers? Are they good?
