A team of 550 babysitters
Our team of babysitters already has more than 450 caregivers throughout the country – Lisbon (and surroundings), Porto, Algarve, Alentejo (Comporta, Tróia, Alcácer, Grândola, Évora…), Coimbra, and Madeira – to guarantee services in a timely manner and whenever you need them.
Our services are distinguished by the fact that they are not limited to “taking care of children”. They go further and include a strong pedagogical and didactic component. Babysitters carry out a set of diversified activities from games to music. More than a service, “they look at the experience they can provide to children”.
The importance of playful-pedagogical activities in early childhood education!
In an increasingly technological world, pedagogical activities are fundamental! It is from 0 to 5 years old that children develop the first set of capabilities and skills that will help them throughout their growth. The implementation of this type of activity is essential for children to start having their first experiences with emotions and feelings, and develop self-esteem and experiences with other people. Pedagogical playful activities also go further in stimulating children’s cognitive and motor skills, such as attention, imitation, memory, creativity, language, and mathematics.
For all these reasons, it is very important that our babysitters are trained to promote this type of activity during babysitting times.
As an educator, whether parent or babysitter, inserting pedagogical activities into children’s daily lives is not as easy as it seems, as it takes a lot of dedication, delivery, time, organization, and confidence and security to put activities into practice and deal with with the child’s acceptance.
At Baby Sisters Portugal we attach extreme importance to this aspect of a babysitter’s job – we make sure they do it during babysitting and that the babysitter takes all the tools to the workplace that she will need to do so.
The educator, whether parent or babysitter, will always be a milestone in a child’s life, and the quality of teaching that is provided will certainly have an impact on the child’s growth so that it grows healthy and happy!
