You’ve gone through your first pregnancy, labor, and delivery, and now you’re ready to go home and begin life with your baby. Once home, though, you might feel like you have no idea what you’re doing! A young family has to adjust to this new life and it can be a daunting task.Think of hiring, nannies, preparing meal plans, making duty rosters and most importantly, caring for your child and helping them be the best they can be.

Seems a lot but don’t fret. Strong Start offers young families in Nairobi training and resources to help them navigate early childhood and house management.

They have an array of services including:

  • Nanny/housekeeper training
  • Meal prep training for the whole family
  • Day care
  • Mummy & me play groups
  • Infant & toddler care training
  • Mummy excursions
  • Daddy & baby bonding activities

During this pandemic, they’ve organized Micropods for kids. These are small groups of children who come together to play and learn. Micropod families agree to limit their exposure to people outside of their pod. Pods normally consist of 3 – 6 children ​and are becoming a popular solution to learning through the coronavirus pandemic. 

They work with micropods to take the planning out of play & development by bringing you quality curriculum and curated supplies.

If you’d like help and advice on running your household and navigating your young family, or introducing your child to a pod contact Strong Start 0717 911583.
