“Pam (or as Turner likes to say: "Bum!") Thanks so much for taking care of our toddlers each day. You are the bubble queen! I bet Turner is one of the most excited kids each time you get out the bubbles. It's hilarious that when he wants bubbles at home, he always says "Bum! Bubbles!" It's so sweet! Thanks for making their day each and every day!”



“Ms. Sabrina - you are wonderful! I feel so fortunate to have you as Turner's caretaker in the toddler room. You are so energetic and playful with the kids. It's great knowing he's in good hands each and every day. And a big thank you for all the pictures you send and the crafts you make/activities you play with the kids. I know that takes a lot of time and work (especially with a room full of toddlers) so I greatly appreciate everything you do for the parents as well! You are the best!”



“Ms. Michelle (or as Turner likes to say: "Shell") - Thank you for hanging out with our toddlers every afternoon. I know Turner has such a blast with his friends and teachers - you all make it a wonderful place for them to stay, play, and learn. And thanks for always having Turner's water ready to go at the end of the day! :) Helps with our long commute home and I really appreciate it each and every time!”



“Ms. Destiny - thank you for taking such good care of Turner in the Cardinals room. He loves being at the school and I know the teachers are to thank for that! You have been a fun addition to the room and we really appreciate you watching after our kiddos each and every day!”



“Ms. Sadia - thanks so much for taking great care of our Turner. I love to hear the songs that you sing to them. I can tell Turner is learning so many! He does hand motions with most of the ones I sing and it's just adorable! We appreciate the great care you provide everyday to our little toddlers!!”
