"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.

Daycare Venue?
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.

Expansion/Game/Stuff Pack Requirements:
- Get-To-Work (Expansion Pack)
- Toddler Stuff (Stuff Pack)

Mod Requirements:
- 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.

- Toddlers Can: Listen To Group Stories Mod: This is needed for your sims to tell toddlers group stories, which is one of the career event goals.

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.

I’ll still ask this though: do you have any other venue lists in the game? That might not be the issue but that’s the first thing I check.

Hey! Yep, definitely the only venue list! The only other one I’ve ever had installed was Basemental’s but I got rid of that, still having the same error

Would it be possible to have a version of this mod that doesn't require toddler stuff as I downloaded the mod but couldn't make a complete daycare as I couldn't add a slide to the lot? Love the concept though and if it's not possible I'll keep the mod in mind for if I ever buy the toddler stuff pack.

I love this mod and I have removed all venue lists, except Zerbu and it still doesn't give me the option to go to work with the sim, but I love the idea of this.

Hii i really love this career. Unfortunately I did get an last exception because of this career. So it might need an update? I'm guessing that's why i got an last exception hehe

First of all, I love the idea of this mod/career. But I am having some issues with it.

So, I downloaded your daycare building you made, and it's great. But the issue I am having is that the workers don't care for the children at all. They just stand around and talk to each other, or make tons of food. I also think every time my sim goes to work, there is an added worker. Even my sim doesn't autonomously care for the children. They also get stuck talking in a group, instead of doing what I tell them to do. I have to cancel the group for them to do stuff. There is also so many toddlers! I have like 8 of them all running around (well actually there is a lot of teleporting for some reason, lol), and no one is caring for them. So the adults are complaining there are stinky diapers, and not doing anything about it.

So as the mod is for me right now, my sim cannot do many of the tasks set to get paid a higher amount. It's very overwhelming. So I might have to send her on her own to get any income from it, but I would rather go with her.

Is this an issue anyone else has come across?

Also, thanks again for the awesome mod idea. Apart from my issues, I love it.
