The Good Life
We are supposed to be outside, experiencing life!
Remember when you were a kid and you rode your bike all over the neighborhood, sunup to sundown, climbing trees, playing in the river, and making memories with your best friends?
Remember when you would wake up in the morning, and you could barely get breakfast down before you were back outside?
Going to bed exhausted and carefree, ready to close your eyes and dream about tomorrow,
When being tired was inseparable from that warm glow of accomplishment and wonder, your bike was a spaceship, and the secrets of the universe ready to be exposed.
Pedal Powered will give your kid that same joy and sense of exploration, only this time, there is maybe, a little more supervision ;)
The way it's meant to be
As parents, we want our kids to grow up confident, happy, and God willing independent.
We want them to see the world as it is, outside of the box, and interact with their peers without diminishing creativity and curiosity. We want them to push the boundaries of what they think they can do, even what you think they can do, and just keep pedaling toward adventure.
This can’t happen if they spend all their time in the classroom, or worse- drowning in their phone screen.
That's what Nifty Nanny is all about
There's a right way to do summer!
Give your kiddo the summer you would want. Set them free to grow, learn who they are, and then push their own boundaries to see who they want to be.
What Happens During a Day?
It's basically a tutorial for fun!

Here's the Big Ideaa
It's not complicated ;)
Take a group of 15 kids, put them all on bikes, mix in two teachers, roll the whole group down the river trail, and out comes a great day!
