Where do I start?

Once you decide to start bringing curriculum to your nanny job, the resources can be overwhelming.To get you started, here are a few questions to ask yourself.

  1. What are your goals with this curriculum?
  2. What age group are you working with?
  3. How much time do you have to spend on this each day/week?

Once you answered these questions, you can begin the actual planning. I tend to use this out line after I pick a theme.

  • Sensory Bin
  • Book
  • Activities
  • Crafts
  • Snacks

I usually will do 1 sensory bin, 1 book, 1-3 activities, 2-5 crafts, and 1-2 special snacks per month.

When you just starting out, try starting with one new activity or craft a week. Gradually work up to planning a month at a time. I am at a point where I know my themes for the entire year and have sensory bin supplies and books for multiple months. I didn’t start out this planned or organized. I have been curriculum planning for about 6 years now so I’ve worked towards being this organized over time.
