We have an after school nanny for our 7 year old. At the moment we are both working full time from home. Our daughters’ school provided some printed out worksheets but no structure or interaction and not enough work.
We’ve managed by working out a daily timetable where our daughter has 2 hours a day with her nanny over Skype and 2 hours with her Grandpa on Skype. The rest of the time she does PE with Joe on YouTube, independent reading, IXL maths and a few easier worksheets.
We WhatsApp pics of the worksheets and additional material we find to her nanny and Grandpa every evening. It’s a lot for us to manage on top of long and difficult work days but it’s really working for our daughter. Thankfully she loves her school work and responds well to a schedule. Her nanny has experience with working in schools and has 4 adult children. She mentioned that these sessions are helping to keep her sane too.
I feel like this arrangement is making a challenging situation just about workable for everyone. For us, having a nanny over Skype has definitely worked.
