Loving Care Family Services is dedicated to finding the most suitable nanny or caregiver for your needs. We pride ourselves on the time we spend to carefully review each candidate’s background to ensure suitability. Our caregivers and nannies are matched based on personality, character, work history & expertise. They have all completed our extensive interview process & reference checks. Whether you are looking for help for yourself, a parent, child, relative or friend, Loving Care is here to help. We offer full time, part time and temporary services.

Nannies and Caregivers for Children

It’s not a simple task to balance work and family. It is a constant struggle that a parent must deal with. The ideal is to hire a caregiver or nanny to care for your children to help balance family responsibilities and quality time, enabling you to have the best of both worlds. When hiring a nanny you want someone that you feel comfortable with and that you trust to look after your family. Our extensive interview and reference check process provides us with the information required when establishing a fit between caregiver and family to make the best possible match. This is our speciality and we pride ourselves on the fact we do it with great success. Read More

Palliative & Elderly Care for Seniors

It is difficult to watch a parent’s health decline. They were once so full of vigour, on the go and all of a sudden (or not so sudden) require assistance to stand up or take a shower. In the blink of an eye an adult child can become a part of what is currently known as the “sandwich generation”; raising children as well as caring for aging parents. Elderly care is important for balance and family harmony. Most aging parents would prefer a caregiver help them shower as opposed to their child. Parents don’t want to burden or inconvenience their children; hiring a caregiver will alleviate the stress that could otherwise occur.

Entertain Kids on a Dime - Booking Information for March 24 & 28, 2016 trip to Great Wolf Lodge (1)

Again, please note that once these rooms are SOLD OUT, I can NOT get any more rooms for those dates. The next time I get dates, I will post them.

One other thing I must mention. This has never happened to me before with the rooms, but this is a standard rule with the Lodge. If you do NOT have 18 rooms booked, then the deal will not go through. Everyone will then have an opportunity to book at the regular rate or they will receive a full refund. This has never happened before with any of my bookings, but I feel I should notify you.

If you have READ EVERYTHING above, and still have a question you can contact me HERE

HAVE A GREAT TIME!

THINGS TO DO & NEWS FOR DECEMBER 2015

I would like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas (who celebrates this holiday). 

For those of you home with the kids and want to be frugal, here are some greats ideas you can do with your kids…

**FREE DIY ACTIVITIES**
1) ALPHABET SCAVENGER HUNT:
Write the alphabet on a piece of paper. One letter per line. Have the kids run around the house or a mall and have them find an item that starts with that letter. (Ie. A=apple, B=bike, C=couch). For smaller kids who are learning their sounds, you can write the words for them.

2) CARD BOARD PLAY HOUSE:
Take a trip to No Frills and pick up some cardboard boxes. Use strong duct tape and a pair of scissors to create a play house. If your kids are older, you can also get them to take markers or paint and decorate the house.

3) HOST A MOVIE DAY:
Turn on the fire (if you have). Bust out blankets, and make some popcorn. Put on a new movie that your kids haven’t seen. Dim the lights, and you’ve got movie time!

4) CREATE A PLAY:
Get your children to put on costumes, practice, and put on a show for you. You can get older kids to make their own props.

5) OUTDOOR NATURE ART PROJECT:
Have your kids look around your backyard or a park and have them pick our leaves, stones, sticks (etc.). When you come back home, have them glue their findings to a piece of paper to create nature art.

6) TOBOGGANING:
Take out a sled, tube or even a garbage bag and head to a park with a hill. Finish the day off with some hot chocolate.

7) BUILD A SNOW MAN: 
Elsa & Anna did it and so can your family! Bundle up your children and give them a carrot for the nose and two small oranges for the eyes. Be creative!

8) VISIT A PET STORE:
Find the largest pet store near you and take the kids for a visit. They may even get a chance to pet the animals.
My kids love going to Big Al’s Aquarium right outside Vaughan Mills Mall. They have tons of fish and reptiles to see. We usually get to hold a lizard when we go.

9) VISIT A BOOK STORE:
If you can resist caving into your children’s toy requests at Indigo, you should take a trip there. You can pick out books together and read to each other.

10) MAKE YOUR OWN PLAY-DOUGH:
For some easy NON-COOK Play-dough recipes, visit: http://entertainkidsonadime.com/2014/03/26/easy-play-dough-recipes/

**CHEAP DIY ACTIVITIES**
1) COTTON BALL SNOW FALL:
Due to our NON WHITE CHRISTMAS, this may brighten your kid’s days. Buy a bag of cotton balls from the store. Dump them over your kids train table, doll house or figurines. Make it “SNOW”.

2) BAKE:
Buy some ingredients and have your kids help you bake and decorate cookies, cupcakes or a cake. I am not a good baker, so I would just buy the cake mix and the icing pre-made. I am not a Martha Stewart!!!

3) PIZZA MAKING:
Take your kids to the grocery store and buy dough, sauce, cheese and toppings. Have your kids create their own pizzas, bake them, and eat them together!

4) MAKE HOMEMADE HOLIDAY CARDS:
Go to the Dollar Store and buy coloured paper, markers and stickers. Have your kids make cards for their family and friends.

5) MAKE FROZEN INSPIRED CRAFTS:
It took me one trip to the dollar store to create these two Frozen inspired crafts. http://entertainkidsonadime.com/2014/06/02/frozen-crafts/

6) MAKE A DEEJAY DANCE PARTY:
Go to the dollar store and get glow sticks! Dress your kids in light colours. Close the blinds and the lights and activate their glow sticks. Put on their favourite songs and have them dance. This one is good when they have friends come over.

7) PUZZLE DAY:
Go to the dollar store and buy age appropriate puzzles for your kids. Have everyone sit together and work on them.

8) SNOW ART:
Buy spray bottles, and paint or food colouring from the dollar store. Fill the bottles with water and paint. Let the children colour the snow.

9) INDOOR CAMP OUT:
Put chairs together and cover them with blankets to create a tent. Make hot dogs and smores and have your kids eat them in the tent. Sing camp songs by the imaginary fire.

10) TREASURE HUNT:
Create a Map of your home and mark the spots to find. Hide small loose change around the house. Have the kids find the change (the “treasures”) and have them put the money in their piggy banks.

I had my FIRST TELEVISION APPEARANCE on the ROGERS TV SHOW “IN THE KNOW” and I was able to talk about “ENTERTAIN KIDS ON A DIME!”

I spoke about how I started it, I showed craft and game ideas for parents, and my daughter Brooklyn appeared on the second segment with me!

It was such a cool experience! We had a blast!
