"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.

IMPORTANT INFO:
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 think I know what the issue is. You can only have one venue list in the game. If you remove the venue list that comes with buyable venues and Holiday Home Mod you should be able to use Zerbu's venue list and that will show all the venues.

I think if you have LittleMsSam's mods, you can use the buyable venues mod, it has the venue list but with more mods included. But I haven't checked, so I might be wrong.

So be it. Move. ~Jason Bourne

So, I love the concept of this, but the problem i'm having is that when it's time to go to work, my sim doesn't go to the building and instead all of our roads disappear..? But she still has the events to complete as if she's at work.

Well for now, my sims is payed to work from home, he’s not going to the daycare ( I’m used to use zerbu workplaces) even if I have the venue. I press join but stays home. I read the comments and I will try again without the holiday home mod in my game.

Thank you!

The holiday home venue itself wouldn't be the issue. You can only have 1 venue list in your mods folder! There are many venue lists made by a variety of modders, LittleMsSams venue list, Get to College Venue List, Basemental's 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. Also, make sure it is the updated version of Zerbu's venue list because the outdated version doesn't work for all mods. Oh and check to make sure you changed actually changed the daycare lot's venue type to daycare after removing the other venue lists because that can reset the lot types.

Hey! When my sim attends work, or takes her own toddler to visit the daycare lot?, there’s no other people there. It seems to work fine aside from no toddlers or anyone else ever being on the lot

Hmm that’s a strange error that no one else has gotten yet.
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.

Unfortunately I get an error when trying to join my sim at work. I have Zerbu's and created the daycare but I got a game error when it was loading. It just told me the game failed to load and then puts me on the world select screen. If I go to the household it will show she is at the daycare but I cannot load it or I get the error again.
