Emily & Steve

“What a wonderful center Azalea has become. We can't express how grateful we are to have Mei in the infant room. The teachers have become a part of Mei's family - our family - and I cannot imagine what our life would look like without them. We so appreciate everything you do, Tania. It's such a joy to see you each day, always greeting families as they come and go, knowing each by name, with a sincere smile on your face. You truly do wonderful work and make such a difference in the lives of others. Thank you for all that you do!”

quotes

Alyssa & Chaz

“Thank you for all that you do - which is a lot! I always see you jumping in wherever help is needed to make sure all the babies and kids are well taken care of, always greeting parents and kids, always answering questions, and most importantly ... finding fun new toys (I still remember the day you brought the square shaker blocks into the infant room)! You have helped organize such an amazing group of people and created such an amazing space for learning and growing, I can't say enough good things about Azalea and the work you all do. We are so grateful that you and the rest of the Azalea team are such dedicated and talented people - you make SUCH a difference in our lives and we appreciate what you do each and every day.”

“What a tremendous job you have done in creating a wonderful space for the infants in the Camas room to grow! It's a joy to be in the room and watch you and the other teachers work your magic. Thank you so much for always making me feel welcome when I come to feed Mei and for being so respectful of her/our needs. I truly have learned so much from you and appreciate all that you do - Azalea is very lucky to have you!”

“Thank you for all you do Megan! You brighten the Camas room so much - you're always making me laugh when I come to feed Mei, and I think that spirit spreads to all the little ones, too. I feel like you're the kid-at-heart in the room (and I mean that in the BEST way)! Thank you so much for taking care of Mei Belle (and all the other sweet babies!) and for always making me feel welcome.”
