Childminding and homeschooling ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ช
So happy we are still allowed to open to all little ones, I missed them so much last lockdown ๐Ÿ˜ข I believe the little ones are loving having my girls home all day ๐Ÿ˜ 8am dancing and extra hands for reading stories. Homeschooling comes in lots of different forms, yes the girls are taking part in zoom lessons at the kitchen table but they are also learning through the little ones ๐Ÿ˜
