Autumn… the years last, loveliest smile
William Cullen Bryant
Each season evokes different feelings. Having said farewell to the sizzle of summer, we celebrate the welcoming of Autumn officially on September 23rd and a new season of cosiness, warmth, simplicity and calm. It’s a perfect chance to revel in nature’s beauty and create happy new memories with your cherished little ones!
Below are some suggestions to light your bonfire of inspiration.
1. Pick apples and bake together
Apple picking is a wonderful way to teach your children about nature and the seasons. Take time before you go picking to study the stages of their growth and which apples may be ripe for the picking. Layer up and head out with your basket on an apple picking adventure! Enjoy the process of creating a delicious apple pie or crumble for the whole family to savour.
2. Go leaf collecting
The beautiful shades of autumn leaves are one of the most magical things about this season. Have fun collecting “rainbow leaves” in different shades and shapes. Roll around with your little ones on a pile of crunchy leaves and throw them in the air like confetti! Bring your favourite collection of leaves home and have fun doing leaf rubbings or make a leaf hanging. Check out our Instagram highlights for a few of our favourite ideas!
The timeless stories of Roald Dahl have delighted generations of children and their parents for decades. Over 100 years after his birth, his stories continue to inspire people of all ages and walks of life. From the vibrant characters to the marvellous stories, for many Roald Dahl is the world’s No.1 story teller.
It’s a beautiful thing when a passion and a career come together. It fills us with delight to place nannies, governesses and tutors with their ideal family in which both parties will be happy and contended. We make it a priority to ensure that each candidate’s skillset and expertise will be utilised to its full potential, allowing the candidate to feel fulfilled within their role of educator and caregiver.
In today’s world we are lucky enough to learn about and connect with other cultures and ways of life so freely. Social media has allowed us to understand new perspectives and outlooks in abundance. As important as it is to limit screen time for our children, it’s also vital that we allow children to connect with the positive aspects of social media to broaden their minds and horizons.
