“Thank you for providing such an amazing environment to our children and all the hard work you put in each day! We are truly grateful for your patience, kindness, and for teaching our boys many life lessons. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to show our appreciation to you! Micah and I hope you will enjoy the food today. We are always thinking of you as we know that the job can be challenging at time, but your efforts show through our boys.”
“I just wanted to reiterate how smoothly I think the opening has gone. Ronan is very happy at the end of each day, and he always says he wants to go back to "the dinosaur school." We're of course thrilled by this, as transitions can always be nerve wracking.”
“I would like to say that you have all done an amazing job of getting the school to an absolutely amazing standard to give me the confidence to have my daughter come back in such a scary time in everyone’s lives. Your staff have been so diligent in adhering to everything set forth by you to keep our little ones as safe as anyone can in these times and I want to thank you and your staff.”
