Fun Local Places To Visit

Sarasota Jungle Gardens is home to more than 200 native and exotic animals including birds of prey, many different species of parrots and macaws, primates, small mammals, dozens of snakes, lizards, iguanas, alligators, crocodiles and other reptiles – many of them rescued or donated – including Florida’s noted pink flamingos. All nestled within 10 acres of lush tropical landscaping connected by winding jungle trails.

Welcome to the Children’s Garden Art Center! Enter a world of make-believewhere fairies dance, hobbits work, pirates sail the high seas and Snuffy our resident dragon keeps a watchful eye over the garden. We encourage you to explore, imagine and play in the dirt, but please do not disturb, harm or destroy any of the plants or sculptures while visiting. Preserving the garden’s natural beauty and keeping a wildlife habitat for our animal friends is what makes it so MAGICAL! The Children’s Garden was created to remind children and adults about how precious each piece of nature is and to experience the magic of MOTHER NATURE!

Nanny and Family Links

Amslee Institute combines post-secondary education taught by collegiate faculty and documented childcare experience to certify Nannies and Sitters. This one-of-a-kind online program improves the lives of children as Nannies learn positive discipline from a child psychologist, health from a physician assistant, and nutrition from a dietitian. Child development is core to the curriculum with classes on Music, Helping with Homework, Literacy, and STEM. Amslee Institute is licensed by the Florida Commission for Independent Education, License No. 5951 and is a member of the International Nanny Association.

GTM’s offerings for families with domestic workers include payroll management, tax filings, workers’ compensation policies and employee benefits like health insurance and 401k plans.

Do you rely on a nanny for childcare? Do you have a housekeeper whom you pay cash? Or maybe someone who watches your kids for a few hours after school? A part time health services provider?

If you pay your nanny or any other household helpers more than $1000 a quarter or $2,000 a year, odds are you’re responsible for paying the “Nanny Tax.” SurePayroll will pay and file ** your nanny taxes—guaranteed

In that pursuit, ProTrainings developed a network of skill evaluators and launched blendedcpr.com, which would allow any person learning or refreshing their CPR to receive hands-on training and testing while still reaping the educational benefits of multi-media learning. In ten short years, ProTrainings has trained more than a million studentsand supplies training solutions for hundreds of companies.

Many jobs require up to date lifesaving skills because they address health emergencies every day – people such as health care providers, first responders, and lifeguards. Others, including teachers and babysitters, are entrusted with precious young lives that could require aid on a moment’s notice.

Those of us who don’t face health emergencies every day can also benefit from Red Cross training. With a wide array of Lifeguarding, Caregiving and Babysitting, and Swimming and Water Safety courses the Red Cross can provide you with the training and skills you need to prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.

INA serves as the umbrella association for the in-home child care industry by providing information, education and guidance to the public and to industry professionals.
