This morning, as I was prepping the kids for school and daycare.. JD sang this song with actions and said “ikaw sad Nana.. (you also do it, Nana)” and wouldn’t stop until I did. So we finished the song together with actions and I realized that being a single mother of 2 (with no yaya) and juggling work and family life is not just tough on me but tough on them too.
I think parents should be the one who will pass along these, not just good genes, but knowledge of things and maybe skills – even simple things like this – exercise! Di ba? I am not happy giving that moment (with the kids) away for someone else to do but I also need to hustle for them to eat, live their life, and go to school, and all that. Which brings me to the main topic of this post.. it’s about this life saver day care that’s not so new in town (if you haven’t heard of it) – they’re Little Kingdom Day Care.
I have been searching for a good yaya/house help ever-since our good one got away. I even had this idea of opening a daycare myself when I got back from Manila because I saw the need of not having a yaya when you need to be somewhere or you need to meet someone or you just need to focus on one thing that day. I even reached to a point of talking with potential partners to make it happen but it seemed to have not rung their bell. Anyway…
Little Kingdom Day Care is a drop-in and tutorial center. Run by friends, who are also busy parents themselves, who saw the need of having temporary love and shelter for the kids when we need to deal with the big boys and girls stuff like work and meetings or if you need time for pampering or maybe shopping? hehehe but yeah, this is what they do and I truly appreciate having them and I see their vision for this daycare which is very useful for my scenario.
They have college graduate “Ate’s” who will take care of the kids and teach them those little things that we miss to give because we had to prioritize something else.
They also have individual and group activities for the kids, artwork, play time, nap-time. They have a playground with kid-safe toys. They have a nap area for their nap time. You know the works – like an extension to your home.
They are open from 7:00AM to 7:00 PM Monday – Saturday.
For more details, like their Facebook page or call them at 0926 066 7557 and let them know you heard it from me! 🙂
