We have been a part of the KinderCare world since May of 2003. Initially, we were apprehensive about our child care options, so we took much thought and time in making the decision. Many factors went into our selection; convenience was one but not a top priority. Upon visiting Downtown KinderCare, we discovered that the staff was warm, friendly, and very empathetic to this crazy, overprotective, felt guilt ridden, and emotional new mom. You were patient with the hovering and forgetful new dad as well.
Now, here we are 10 years later. You have cared, loved, and nurtured two of the most precious people in our lives. As a result, we are eternally grateful. Although I am still a crazy, overprotective, guilt ridden and emotional mom while Jon still is forgetful, you have made me less crazy, guilt ridden and less emotional. I have let out some of the string on my kite, but I have a hard time believing I will ever be able to let go of my parental instincts completely.
In these 10 years, a lot of teachers have come and gone, but the quality of teachers and the sizes of their hearts have remained the same. We have a special place in our hearts for many of the teachers and always will. They have helped ensure that my boys feel cared for and loved.
It is going to be bittersweet when we say goodbye at the end of the summer. We will not missing the check each week, but it has been worth every penny! Wish us luck on our children's' new adventure! We will keep you all in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers as you all journey onto new adventures as well.
Also, a special thank you to Ms. Britney, Ms. Q, Ms. Meghan, Ms. Jennifer, Ms. Tia, Ms. Melissa, Ms. Jenn and so many others! There are too many to list. We truly appreciate everything!
