We moved to Acton about two years ago and one of my biggest stressors was finding a daycare for my two children. After I toured the Hayward Road KinderCare with Helena Prentiss, the Center Director, and met some of the teachers, I left knowing that my children would be cared for, loved and valued here. I could feel that Helena and her teachers had created something special. Two years later, I was right! If you ask my three-year-old what he likes most about school, he just starts naming his teachers: “Elena, Jen, Andrea, Nancy, Debbie, Stephanie, Carrie, Barbara…” and on it goes. Any teacher who is there at the end of the day gets a big smile, hug, and goodbye from him—he clearly loves them, and I can see they love him too. Yes it is important that he learns his ABC’s, his colors and numbers, and he is, but that his teachers also show him through their actions and words that he is special and valued provides him the foundation for developing his own self-confidence and sense of self-worth and that is invaluable. To me it’s what excellent teachers do.

I could go on with many examples of how Helena and her staff have supported my whole family, in times of work crises, family emergencies and medical scares. But suffice it to say that the Hayward Road KinderCare is a community of support, love and care that I am grateful, and proud my family is part of. - Sandy M., Mother
