“Ms. India, you went from being Jameson's "shadow" when he needed extra guidance to being an invaluable part of his early education. You demonstrate compassion and care with his early learning and provide consistency. Jameson sees you as a barometer for his behavior, respect and kindness for others and ability to use "listening ears" and "attention scopes". We really value you as a teacher. It is awesome to see you grow as an early educator and work toward your CDA credential. We are proud of you and value your contribution to creating a community of learning Jameson looks forward to each day.”


Bridget, Rick, Jameson & Patrick

“Ms. Beth, your classroom management and leadership are exceptional. You are a model early educator and we are so happy to see your leadership skills rewarded with the lead teacher position for the Twos. You have been a consistent presence in Jameson's growth and development. You make learning fun and encourage play. Jameson loves you and school because of your energy, warm spirit and positive communication. Thank you for your support with potty training and all that you do each day for the center! You created community to a new center and we hope Patrick will have you as a teacher!”


Bridget, Rick & Jameson

“Gracia poralentar a Jameson un Nuevo idioma! Ama tus canciones y proyectos. Nuestra biblioteco espanola ha crecidio y hemos empezado a sacra libros de la biblioteca en Espanol!”


Bridget, Rick & Jameson

“Ms. Autumn, you greet us with a warm smile and a loving disposition each morning. You make Jameson look forward to coming to school and provide us with a peace of mind that he is in good hands at the center! Thank you for all you do for the children's lives that you touch. You are an important part of our family and we value you as an educator.”


Bridget, Rick & Jameson

“Ms. Maricar, we will miss you when you transition to FDIC, but know you will flourish in your new role! Thank you for teaching our family about "listening ears" and "attention scopes". You have helped create a community out of a new school. Your leadership and expertise as an early educator do not go unnoticed. The helpful hints you provided us as "newish" parents, especially with potty training and positive parenting are invaluable.”
