Adventure Nannies On Air Ep 41: The First Three Years - Understanding Early Childhood Development

Adventure Nannies On Air Ep 41: The First Three Years – Understanding Early Childhood Development











We are so excited to share Season Two of our podcast — you can find Adventure Nannies On Air wherever you listen to podcasts!


With over 10,000 candidates applying to positions through our agency each year, we simply do not have time to meet and interact with each one – but we don’t want to limit the resources and expertise we have developed over the last several years to only candidates who are in the running for our sought-after positions.





The podcast is regularly hosted by our co-founder and CEO Shenandoah, and the original founder of Adventure Nannies, Brandy Schultz, who now has two children and an incredible Adventure Nanny of her own.

In this episode, Brandy and Shenandoah speak with Thaty Oliveira, a brilliant professional childcare provider, educator, and tireless advocate for domestic workers. Brandy and Thaty discuss the work that Thaty is doing as a nanny educator and family consultant. Thaty shares her advice for domestic workers and parents as they investigate how to effectively support early childhood development.
