“It was so hard leaving Breenie at daycare and going back to work, but you've made all the difference. I'm so happy she has a teacher she loves and who not only takes care of her but shows her lots of affection, so I don't have to worry about how she's doing while I'm away from her. Thank you!!!”



“Ms. Renelle, I'm so glad to have you as Breenie's teacher. As a first-time parent there's a lot I don't know, and I really appreciate your advice and knowing Breenie has someone taking care of her who really knows what she's doing. Thank you!”



“Ms. Tosha- You are wonderful. You always make me feel comfortable, happy, and cared for and that makes my parents confident that I am having a great time while they work. We wish you a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Month and we hope you know what a real difference you make every day. Love, Deano”

“Dear Ms. Davonna, You are such a considerate and dedicated teacher and I love spending time with you. Thank you for helping me to learn to hold my bottle, to roll over, to be confident on my tummy, and to be creative in everything I do. I hope you have a Teacher's Appreciation Month full of surprises and I really hope you know how much you mean to me and my mom and dad. We are so grateful to you! Love, Deano”


Dean Reineking

“Ms. Tina, You are the bee's knees. You make me smile every day and I'm growing into a big, strong boy because of all your help. I love seeing you in the morning and my parents get to trust how well I am treated because they see how much you care. Happy Teacher Appreciation Month- you deserve all the appreciation you will receive for all the love you give. Love, Deano.”
