Growing children thrive in a substantially coordinated neighborhood of dynamic associations with parents, caregivers, relatives, teachers, and peers.  These interconnections established early in childhood frame​ the foundation of their future exploits in teamwork, leadership, foresight, and critical thinking.  The Green Room Nanny assiduously contributes to the richness of experiences and essence of life lessons necessary for each child's development.​​

Research indicates that acquired simple skills furnish the base for mastery of increasingly complex faculties. Our emotional competence and social understanding crystallize throughout the infant and toddler ages and are preparatory for success in learning and life.​

The higher regions of a newborn's brain, including the cerebral cortex, are less advanced and will mature from infancy into the young adult years and beyond. This evolution is heavily dependent on those sensory, motor, emotional, and cognitive episodes that set in motion the electrical activity required to shape neural circuits and connect with other systems. Synapses consistently activated will be strengthened while others with little or no use may be eliminated.

Being ready for school involves more than fostering an aptitude for letters and numbers. Among others, it invites self-awareness with insight into a person’s thoughts and feelings, and the capacity for cooperative interaction and sustained friendships.  It suggests self-confidence with the ability to plan, follow instructions, resolve conflicts, and adapt to changing circumstances.  It commands self-regulation to focus attention, filter distractions, monitor emotions, and control impulses. After all, it summons an emerging conscience to sense right from wrong and to judge the correct course of action.  These proficiencies are not innate and must be nurtured from birth with the practical wisdom provided by responsive environments and supportive relationships.

Our infinitely diverse families are vital for longevity.  Those with proven logistical networks in place are more likely to flourish when confronted with competing appeals from home and livelihoods.  The primary goal of the Green Room Nanny is to supply an efficient surrogate for parental oversight while promoting certain practices that are essential to every child achieving their full potential.​
