"Daycare providers care for children in their own homes or daycare facilities while their parents are at work or otherwise engaged during the day. They take care of the child's every need, including playing games with them, feeding them, and providing basic education as requested by parents. Here at Tumbling Tots Co., we train you on how to run your own at-home daycare or work in our learning facility."
Introducing "Tumbling Tots Co.", A Sims 4 Active Daycare Career! I've always wanted my sims to be able to work at a daycare in the Sims 4 because this was an option in the Sims 3. I made a version that was semi-active but decided to just go for it and make a full-blown active career!
How does it work?
The Daycare Teacher career works like any other Get-To-Work career. When it's time for your sim to go to work the game will give you the option to follow them to the daycare center venue and actually help your sim through the workday.
Yes, you heard me correctly, a daycare venue! I've created a custom venue type and this venue allows your sim to actively go to work at the daycare. Your sims can also visit the venue with your own toddlers even if they aren't in the daycare career. This is a perfect way for toddlers to socialize and make new friends! You can make any lot a daycare by changing the venue type to 'Daycare". To follow your sim to work, you MUST place down a daycare lot set as the daycare venue type.
At-Home Daycare Career
I've created an Active At-Home Daycare Career that functions like a Get-To-Work Career, but from home. This career is modeled after the Daycare Profession from The Sims 3!
How does it work?
Your workday starts at 9 am when the children are dropped off and ends at 7 pm. The amount of toddlers/children you have depends on your level in the career. You also get paid 120 simoleons per day per child! Each week you also get a stipend depending on your level in the career.
Level 1. Amateur Babysitter: 2 toddlers. Weekly Stipend. $100*
Level 2. Cool Care-Giver: 3 Toddlers. Weekly Stipend = $200*
Level 3. Daycare Dynamo: 3 Toddlers. Weekly Stipend = $300*
Level 4. Good Guardian: 3 Toddlers & 2 School-Aged Children. Weekly Stipend = $400*
Level 5. Daycare Specialist: 3 Toddlers & 3 School-Aged Children. Weekly Stipend = $500*
Expansion/Game/Stuff Pack Requirements:
Get-To-Work (Expansion Pack)
Toddler Stuff (Stuff Pack)
Venue Changes By Zerbu: This is needed for the venue type to be shown in the game. Without this mod, you won't be able to follow your sim to work.
ItsKatato_AlwaysActiveCareer: This is needed so your sim automatically actively works from home!
You can only have ONE venue list in you mods folder! There are many venue lists made by a variety of modders, LittleMsSams venue list, Get to College Venue List, Basemental Drugs Venue List, Coolspear`s Multipark Venue ID, ChippedSim’s Graveyard Venue and Ksuihuh’s Venue List. Zerbus venue list should work for all mods because of the way the mod was created.
Optional Daycare Build:
I have a daycare pre-built if you don't want to create your own. I'm not the best builder so I recommend you grab a build from the gallery.
