Suffolk County Au Pair in America Au Pairs decorated a holiday tree in Stony Brook Village Promenade of Trees. The theme of the tree is “we bring the world together!” All the trees are on display through the New Year’s weekend. The au pairs enjoyed decorating the tree and walking through the village to view the other trees on display. We even saw Santa arrive in his sleigh! We hope all our host families and friends visit Stony Brook Village for the holiday season, see Santa and our tree!
With shorter days and colder weather, you and the children are probably spending more time inside the house. Please be sure that the house is “childproof” with these simple tips:
- Children are curious; many small children put everything into their mouths. Be sure no small objects are within the child’s reach.
- Plastic bags, long cords and very soft pillows can be dangerous to children.
- If a toy gets broken and has sharp edges, keep it away from children!
- Be sure that laundry soap and other cleaners are out of reach of the children.
- Don’t leave any medicines in reach of children, not even vitamins.
- Keep scissors and knives out of reach.
- Store the toys that belong to older children out of reach of babies and toddlers.
- Many cosmetic items and toiletries, such as mouthwash, perfume, nail polish, and hair spray, are poisonous. Keep them out of children’s reach.
In October Suffolk County Au Pairs joined the other NY Au Pair in America Clusters for a Scavenger Hunt in NYC. One of our cluster’s teams came in third place! The Au Pairs got to know the Times Square Area of NYC really well by finding everything on the Scavenger Hunt!
