“To all the teachers and staff: Being a working parent is so difficult, and I have been known to question if I am doing the right thing for my kids, but while in your care I have never questioned if my kids are getting the love, nurturing, guidance and education they need and deserve. I know they are loved and taken care of, and that allows me to pursue my dreams and create the best life I can for them. Thank you for the constant HARD work you do day in and out, for putting them first, for always looking for ways to grow their sweet minds and hearts. I love you all and am forever grateful for the gifts you give them daily.”

I love seeing how happy he is when you are there, and that all the kids are so comfortable with you. I know you are loving on them and encouraging them as they grow. You are wonderful! THANK YOU!”

“Miss Holly, thank you for being so sweet, loving and encouraging in BOTH my children's lives. You have a calming and caring presence, and the peace I have knowing that my children are loved by you is so amazing. I appreciate all you do for us, and more importantly the great start and support my children have received from you. THANK YOU!”

quotes

Kari

“Miss Jessie, you never miss a beat! You can read children and situations and are on it with your kindness, happiness, encouragement and fun! You have been a huge part of both of my kids and their experience at Daycare, and without you (not only would they all be hungry) but they would be missing that special fun and silliness they need! Thank you a million times for being so special and for loving all of the children!”
