Congratulations to the Sanchez family, who won our Back to School Tuition sweepstakes. Their son will be joining the South Loop KinderCare family and we’re thrilled to have him with us. We hope that the year of free tuition – along with the world class care and education your children will receive – makes a huge impact in your lives.
For the Wonderful KinderCare Staff and Teachers:
Gosh, it's hard to even know where to begin in expressing our appreciation for all that you have done for Kayla and Connor during their time at KinderCare. (And, we had to type this because trying to express these thoughts in person would have been far too tearful).
From the first day we brought Kayla here (when she was four months old), we were met with warmth, care and concern. KinderCare has been a place where our children have learned to roll over, to crawl, to sit up, to walk, to eat solid foods, to talk, to feed themselves, to write, to count, to drink out of a cup, to use the potty (well, almost), to push elevator buttons, to do art projects, to appreciate music and many more. But, more importantly, they have learned how to make friends, to use their imaginations, to show concern for others, to love, to place nicely with others, to use their manners and to be confident in their abilities. So many milestones have happened within these walls and so many lesson that they will carry with them forever.
There are really no words to describe the feeling you have, as a parent, when you know that your child is in a place where they are well cared for and look forward to going every day. That fear and guilt of handing over our most precious gifts each day is immense. But, hearing the enthusiasm with which they tell us about what they did during the day and seeing the smiles on their faces when they are with their teachers and friends (and the occasional groan that we showed up too early for pick-up), is constant reassurance of us having made the right choice in sending them to KinderCare.
We're sure there are many times when it may feel like a thankless job, but we just wanted you to knowhow incredibly valuable the work you do is each day and how much of a difference you are making in people's lives. Even though we will no longer see you every day (just during school breaks), you will always hold a special place in our hearts. Thank you again for all you do!
