"My children have been going to Extend-A-Care for a year and a half. I am glad to have such a high quality option for my children during the day while I am at work. The teachers are attentive, cheerful, and open to discussing my children's development with me during pick up or drop off. They also send out weather alerts and reminders to parents as necessary, and are receptive to parent texts and phone calls. At a recent parent-teacher conference, the head teacher, shared with me my child's portfolio containing cutting and writing samples, information regarding development of letter-sound recognition (an area where my child needs support), counting, double digit number recognition, etc. The meeting provided me with a designated time to voice my questions regarding my child's mental and emotional development. I am grateful to Extend-A-Care program and the staff that work with my children. I am confident that my children receive high quality care in my absence.”
“I personally don't think I stress enough how AMAZING EAC staff are. He comes home and sings happy birthday, his abcs, he's counting to 6 so far, talking a lot more and clearly and yesterday he came up to me and said "MOM, its a red block". And he was sooo excited he found a red block.. If you could of saw the smile on his face, he was super happy. He's learning there at EAC and I absolutely love it. From being a very premature baby to where he is mentally, it makes me feel so excited for his future. Thank you guys for everything you have done me in the past years as well. We will FOREVER love Extend a Care! You guys are AWESOME!”
“We LOVE each and every staff member here – they make it easier for us to go to work each day knowing that our daughter is learning and being cared for is such a nurturing environment. She's grown and learned so much already this year. Having Extend-a-Care at our campus this is such a blessing.”
“You and everyone have been such a wonderful addition to our daily routine and best of all… My son is EAGER to see you all. That sure does have a comforting effect on me and brings me assurance that I have made the careful and right choice for my little Man to be surrounded by loving and patient role models.”
“I am so amazed at how wonderfully they care for the children. Both of my grand babies love their caregivers. For Christmas they made beautiful calendars using each child's handprints and footprints...beautiful memories. They always help me when needed and I can tell they truly care about the babies.”
