So much goes on behind the scenes here at The Geeked Out Nanny Agency, that it seems impossible to always get around to blog about it, but today I needed to share a huge accomplishment with you all. I also hope this post helps you to get to know us better too.
In December of 2013 in Michigan we had an Ice Storm. There were lives lost and a lot of residents like myself were without power for days. I was actually displaced for about 4 months afterward and had some unfortunate events happen to me outside of the Ice Storm. I was able to start doing some remodeling in my home, and then life turned even uglier as my mother was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. I was with my mother every step of her journey, with that being said I put aside doing remodeling for a bit. Her journey also led me to start the Nanny Agency, the loss of my mother in September of 2015 allowed me to reinvent myself in many ways that I had never even imagined. I am very passionate about my work with children, I love building relationships with parents and their nanny/babysitter, and I am committed to positively impact the Early Childhood Field with as much research and work as possible.
So after almost four years I am thrilled to be able to share pictures of the beginning stages of what we hope will become the Gold Standard when it comes to playgroups, nanny and babysitting trainings, and parent workshops. The Geeked Out Nanny Agency is proactive, and will not make any excuses to not meeting family's needs in our community. In the past we have had a lot of problems securing places to host these activities.... problem solved. This is where the seed is being planted, and we will grow!
There is still decorating to do, a few things here and there that still need to get done. The set up was mind boggling. There use to be walls and such so I had to break out of what "use to be" thinking, and get creative.
This area is dedicated to the shelves that have art, math and science materials housed on them.
Along the wall math and science shelves.
Our Block Area.
Language and more science shelves.
Our STEAM shelves.
We believe in hands on learning and there just is no better way to learn about children then to be in an environment created for children to thrive in. Well it's back to answering the phones, home consultations and making connections with families who are finding their forever nanny and friend. And then after that it is finally time to set up some provocations. I am so excited!! So tell us what do you think about our classroom set up so far? We love suggestions!
Thanks for reading!!
