So what can your Fredericton nanny and children do on a rainy summer day? Or how about when your Fredericton nanny and the children need to get out of the house in the winter months?
Here are some rainy day ideas for your Fredericton nanny and children. Best yet, they are low budget and easy to access in your community.
Summers in Canada always are too short, so your Fredericton nanny is going to want to take advantage of every sunny day to take the children out and enjoy the warm weather.
Fredericton has plenty of uncrowded parks and gardens where the children can run around and your Fredericton nanny can get a little sun herself. Consider any of the following places for your Fredericton nanny:
Don't assume that cold weather means extra indoor time before the TV set or computer screen. Fredericton is a great place for winter play, with plenty of outdoor activities that your Fredericton nanny and children can enjoy together.
There is cross-country skiing at Odell Park, Killarny Lake, and Mactaquac Park; downhill skiing at Crabbe Mountain (New Brunswick's highest elevation); or taking part in (or at least watching) organized winter activities like curling, dog sledding or snowmobiling.
It will be very easy for your Fredericton nanny and the children to take part in these winter adventures, since they are all located within a few minutes drive of the downtown area.
The re-enactment of the Changing of the Guard ceremony downtown is a sight to behold for your Fredericton nanny and children. The event is free.
Your nanny and children will see plenty of scarlet-clad soldiers in Officers Square and hear the stirring pipes during the traditional ceremony -- similar to Buckingham Palace's famous changing of the guard ceremony.
The ceremony takes place two times a day, every day -- at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekends.
If the little ones like the changing of guard, your Fredericton nanny will want to take them to "A Day in a Soldier's Life," a 90-minute tour of an old British guardhouse. The kids even get to wear a scarlet tunic!
The St. John River, one of North America's great unspoiled waterways, flows through the heart of Fredericton, New Brunswick. So your Fredericton nanny can easily take the children down by the river to enjoy cool breezes, nice views and some fun activities.
Make sure your nanny is a competent swimmer, and that the children have the flotation devices they need. Also, go over with your nanny the kind of safe behavior you expect of the children in the water. Then encourage everyone to have fun.
Here are some activities that are free or low cost:
