“Wendy helps in the kitchen. She also seems to help with other things too. She gives great phone updates on my kids when I call to check on how their day is going. In addition, my kids are excited to see her.”



“Kiara takes care of my daughter on Monday nights for EP. When I have watched her care for the children she seems to do a great job. She keeps order in the class and makes sure the children's needs are met. Kiara seems to be a talented teacher. My Mondays go better knowing she is taking care of my daughter.”



“Vanessa is so good at taking care of my son. When she is in my son's classroom I get lots of videos showing what they are doing. The videos make me feel like I am a part of his day even though I am not with him. She is great at what she does.”



“We knew Misty as an infant teacher. She came to teach my daughter's preschool class. I am so impressed what a gifted teacher. She was so good in the infant room at helping me be a better mom. She always took great care of my infants. She does great with the preschoolers. It is so much fun to hear my daughter talk about what she is learning in class and be so excited about it.”



“If it wasn't for Miss Angie my kids might starve. They love the food they get at daycare. When I have eaten with the kids I will agree that I get good food at daycare too. Angie seems to take great pride and invests the effort into making sure that my kids have full bellies at school.”

Healthy Food for Growing Children

Healthy food is part of children’s development. Our menus align with our wellness commitment to Partnership for Healthier America. By eating family-style and serving themselves, children learn about making healthy choices and the connection between food and community.
