Toddlers require close supervision. They are eager to try new things, but their desire is often more advanced than their physical abilities.
Encourage the development of motor skills in toddlers by allowing self-feeding with a toddler sized spoon or fork. Toddlers can also be encouraged to stack blocks, turn pages of cloth and board books, open flaps in books, feel textures, look in an unbreakable mirror, color with crayons and to help put their toys away bins or baskets that are within reach.
Nannies can help to develop self-care skills by encouraging toddlers to undress, brush their teeth and wash and dry their hands with help.
