Fun facts about Saskatchewan

If your Saskatchewan nanny is a sports fan, she will look forward to taking the kids to the various pro and college sporting events. If she is not familiar with Canadian sports, tell her about the exciting competitions. Offer her and the kids schedules of sporting events. Better yet, take her and the kids to a sports event as a family outing. Here’s what she needs to know about Saskatchewan’s major sports teams:

  • Saskatchewan Roughriders: The Canadian Football League from Regina is the pride of the province. With beginnings that date to the Regina Roughriders Football Club in 1912, fans have watched their team win nine western Canadian titles. They play at Regina's Taylor Field.
  • Regina Pats are members of the Western Hockey League, playing other teams across Western Canada and the northern U.S. Their stadium is the 5,750-seat Brandt Centre. The Pats’ claim to fame is being the oldest Major Junior Hockey Franchise in the world. When they first started out in 1917, they were known as the Patricias.
  • University of Regina Cougars. First, all the university's teams are named the cougars, except for the Rams football team. But UR team sports include basketball, volleyball, wrestling, soccer, swimming, hockey and track.

Make sure your Saskatchewan nanny understands your family's approach to discipline and your expectations for the children's behavior.

You can offer your nanny guidelines to follow. For your own peace of mind, you may want to review with her the kinds of discipline your family does not use, such as hitting, yelling or humiliation.

A simple rule for her to follow is never to discipline in anger. She needs to be aware that discipline should be a learning tool for children and not a means for inflicting emotional or psychological hurt.

While your Saskatchewan nanny has experience in discipline, her own upbringing may differ with how you raise your children. Encourage her to talk about experiences growing up.

Offer her some tips for handling discipline and problem behavior:

  • Tell her in a clear and nonjudgmental way how you handle situations in which children do not behave or follow directions correctly.
  • Assure her that you will help her handle problems that she cannot manage.
  • Ask her how she teaches children about good behavior and consequences.
  • Show her your techniques for "time outs" for younger children.
  • Talk to her about ways for teaching children to manage their own emotions and avoid outbursts and tantrums.
  • Show her how to redirect toddlers who are endlessly curious but need to stay safe and learn boundaries. A series of "nos" may be ignored by the littlest ones unless you help them find other games to play.
  • Share your techniques for helping youngsters take a nap or go to bed on their own. Some children have special stuffed animals they take to bed, or a routine of story time with care givers before the lights are turned out.
  • Finally, keep the lines of communication open with your nanny, so she feels free to talk with you about the successes and frustrations of her day.

Your Saskatchewan nanny can take a driving tour of the province by traveling the Trans-Canada Highway, east to west. A good starting point is the city of Brandon. She will be awed by the grasslands and amazed by the flat topography.

The route, through eastern Saskatchewan, passes through flat land, described as some of the flattest land you ever will see.

Your nanny can take a detour to the Moose Mountain Provincial Park, 80 km south of the highway from Whitewood.

She also may want to visit parks in the Qu’Appelle valley, by taking Route 9 north of Whitewood.

She will drive through Regina, a prairie city of 200,000 people and the provincial capital. When she gets west of Moose Jaw, she will drive through miles and miles of grassland prairie, then pass Swift Current. To the north of the highway is Saskatoon Landing Provincial Park, a good place to end her journey and head home.

Encourage your Saskatchewan nanny to explore the social scene in the provincial capital of Regina. She will find a café society of coffee lovers that has been compared to the social scene of European  sidewalk cafes.

She may want to sample the variety of coffee shops Regina has to offer, from international chains like Starbucks to hip independently-owned places like Exotic Coffee World.

She is sure to find other young adults, perched at tables with lattes in hand. Many bring their laptops or books. Customers play chess, talk, or listen to music.

Coffeehouses are entertainment destinations in Regina. They also are gathering spots for a diverse group of people, from artsy crowds of students to business executives and government workers. Everyone is united in their love and obsession for caffeinated drinks.

Many coffee shops are clustered downtown on and near Scarth Street. There also are coffee houses in the Cathedral Area, west of downtown. On Albert Street and Victoria Avenue, there are major shops like Tim Hortons and Timothy’s.

People seem to pick coffee shops based on their own personal styles. Here is a sampling:

  • Exotic Coffee World Roasting Company;

  • Atlantis Coffees;

  • Aegean Coast Coffee & Tea;

  • Roca Jack's.

If your Saskatchewan nanny is from another province or country, she will want to learn as much as possible about this Canadian province. Share books and your own knowledge about the cities of Saskatchewan.

Clip articles from local newspapers and magazines, and put together a scrapbook on area history and lore. She is sure to appreciate the time and effort you put into the project. It makes a fine – and inexpensive – welcome gift when she arrives.

Have the kids decorate the scrapbook with their artwork. You may want to include maps of your community and of the province as well. Ask the children for their contributions to the scrapbook. The project will encourage them to learn and share their knowledge of local history and culture.

Here are some facts you may want to pass along about the province’s cities:

· Saskatoon is in the center of Saskatchewan, about 300 km from the U.S. border and 258 km from the capital, Regina. Saskatoon is on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River. There are seven bridges in the city and 300 acres of riverside parks.

· Regina, the capital of Saskatchewan, is an important city in the province. It is home to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s academy and museum. It also is the location of  battles of the Riel Rebellion. It is the birthplace of former prime minister John J Diefenbaker, who's childhood home is beside Wascana Lake.

· Prince Albert is the third largest city in the province, after Regina and Saskatoon. It is located on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, and is known as the “Gateway to the North.” Prince Albert National Park is 50 km north of the city, and boasts lakes, forests and abundant wildlife.

Your Saskatchewan nanny will appreciate the rural retreats and trails tucked throughout the city of Saskatoon. These urban enclaves offer rural beauty, hiking trails and wildlife habitats for her and the kids to enjoy.

Here is a list of some of the more popular conservation areas and hiking trails in the city:

  • Beaver Creek Conservation Area: Five nature trails meander through prairie, forest, creek and river valley habitats. Kids can use the interactive displays. There also are river rides on an 8-person canoe.

  • Meewasin Valley Trail: It’s hard to believe that this trail winds through the heart of Saskatoon. There are scenic river views, 19 km of trails, landscaped parks and natural areas.


  • Saskatoon Natural Grasslands: The urban park has 200 plant species, native birds, 25 kinds of butterflies.

  • Circle "H" Ranch: Kids enjoy the ball diamonds, sand volleyball court, hay rides, buggy rides, carriage rides, sleigh rides, horseshoe pits, dances.

  • Cranberry Flats Conservation Area: With
    beautiful views of the river, this is a favorite spot for family picnics.

 

Saskatoon offers plenty of parks where your Saskatchewan nanny can take the children for an afternoon or day or activities.

Residents know how much the city’s parks contribute to their quality of life and are the center of activity for children year round.

Your nanny quickly will discover the recreational opportunities at Saskatoon parks. There are parks where you can skate, watch a curling match, visit a zoo, swim or cross-country ski.

Keep this list of Saskatoon parks handy for your Saskatchewan nanny to use:

  • Silverspring Park wraps around the Forestry Farm Park and Saskatoon Zoo. This eastern park is one of the city’s largest and offers cross-country ski trails for winter activities.

  • Lakewood Park has a variety of amenities -- a pool and waterslide, indoor tennis club, civic center and library. It is located next to a manmade lake, and is part of Wildwood Golf Course, which people use for cross-country skiing in the winter.

  • Nutana Kiwanis Park is conveniently located behind Market Mall. It has a skating arena and the Nutana Curling Club is based here.

  • Diefenbaker Park runs along the eastern bank of the South Saskatchewan River, behind the Exhibition Grounds. It offers walking/jogging trails that visitors use for cross-country skiing in the winter. There is also a bridle path.

  • Gordon Howe Park bustles with activity, because several athletic facilities are located here. The park is home to the C.D. Speedskating Oval, Gordon Howe Ball Fields, Gordon Howe Football Bowl, the Bob Van Impe Field and the Kinsmen Arena.

Make sure your Saskatchewan nanny is a good match for you and your family. Choosing the right nanny is challenging, especially if you are interviewing candidates over the phone.

Here are some tips for narrowing your search to the right Saskatchewan nanny for your family:

  • Make sure you and your spouse are compatible with your nanny. There is chemistry to any relationship. Make sure the three of you hit it off, and that she seems sensitive to your feelings and needs.
  • She needs to be a good fit with your children. Do they share similar interests? Let's say your children enjoy physical activities but your nanny says her favorite pastime is reading a book or shopping. She may not be a good match with your children. Likewise, you need a nanny who loves babies and has infant care experience, if you are seeking a care giver for a very young child.
  • Cultural exchange. Your nanny may be coming from another country or community. How important is it to you and your family to have the cultural exchange that many families say they appreciate in a nanny? If it is important, seek a nanny from a country or community you wish to learn more about.
  • Finally, write down a list of job duties for your nanny. Then make sure she has the skills to carry them out. For example, you may want her to drive your car and she may not hold a valid driver's license.

Now that you have a Saskatchewan nanny, you have more options and flexibility when planning summer activities for your children. She can handle all the transportation for the children.

Your children's summer programs no longer have to match your work schedule or your spouse's schedule. With a nanny, your child can attend a one-hour pottery class, a day camp three days a week, or just stay home.

You don't have to figure out who will handle the transportation or whether a babysitter can fill in the hours you are at work. You don't have to enroll your child in a summer care program that provides the hours you need but has little else to offer your child in activities.

Now you can plan your child's summer based on the quality of programs and the interests of your son or daughter.

The University of Saskatchewan provides several summer day camps for childhood enrichment. The camps take place on the university campus.

Programs for children include:

  • Band camp;
  • Art camp;
  • Music camp;
  • Ecology camp;
  • Sci-fi camp;
  • Explore Canada camp;
  • Ecology Camp;
  • Living History camp.

Check the university's web site for detailed information on the camps, including course descriptions, dates and hours of classes, and the age groups of participants.

Amaze your Saskatchewan nanny with some fun facts about the province. By offering her information on the province's history and culture, you will make her feel at home and inspire her to learn more about her new community.
