Parents Say
“Coming into a new community it has been a godsend. I was full-time before and now I’m at home. I really didn’t want to be isolated. So finding the drop in and being able to come and go as you please provided a bit of routine. My daughter is socializing with the other kids. I can be myself again, and not just ‘mom.’”
“They intimately know my child. They are very genuine and it’s not just a job for them. They care about the kids, and they really know you. Even if you’re not there all the time, they know you.”
