What the parents say:

  • “I have been meaning to tell you how amazing the infant room staff is. I know you probably know that already, but I imagine you all don’t hear it enough, so I wanted to be explicit about my appreciation. They really are the dream team. Eli adores them all and so do we. Each of them, while bringing a unique touch to the relationship, maintains a consistently high quality of care and communication. Thank you for assembling such a great team!”

  • “I have the unique experience of working on the same campus as the Children’s Center and occasionally pop in to see what kind of fun they’re having. No matter what time of day it is, I’m amazed that the teachers in the toddler room are always calm and smiling. It’s not easy teaching and nurturing that age group all day, and they do it with such happiness and grace.”
