Welcome and hi from NANNY SHECANDO!
As I hit publish on this post, my mind is cast back to the gorgeous vista that was my ‘office’ for a few days recently – a shaded swinging hammock under the trees, beach-side in Cancun, Mexico – paradise is an understatement. With poolside cocktails, professional development workshops, sponsor expos and networking events – yep, I was at the 2015 International Nanny Association conference in Cancun. Right, now that we got that out of the way…
I wanted to pop in and say hello to you. It’s been a while. You saw a bit of me with the crafts over Easter, but I haven’t had much time with you this year. Though you have met some wonderful new additions to the NANNY SHECANDO blogging team and I’m so glad.
Olivia Foster is our resident crafts extraordinaire. Abby Sneddon our health + fitness blogger, and Da Poppins our children’s literature aficionado. Sarah Kinghorn popped in to give an exposé into her experience as a nanny vs babysitter, and Amelia Seymour of Starry Nights our resident sleep consultant expert. You’ll be seeing more of them each week on the blog.
So what’s been taking up all of my time? Well I mentioned it briefly last year, and you might have seen it in your news feeds in the last couple of months; The 2015 Australian Nanny Conference. I’m co-founding the first ever Australian Nanny Conference and can I say, I am so excited. Hosted at the University of Sydney, this inaugural event is featuring an extraordinary lineup of highly regarded and sought after speakers delivering tailored nanny-specific information and resources.
