It is with great pleasure that I write this letter in support of the nomination of Kids R Kids Daycare and Preschool for the ECLC Award of Excellence. My two daughters have been enrolled in the program since they were very young and both started in the baby program. Like most parents, I was extremely nervous and apprehensive about putting my new baby in the care of others however it did not take long for me to discover that this was a place full of highly skilled and caring professionals. My girls were in excellent hands from the time I left until I returned at the end of the day. I have witnessed them grow in many ways with the help of their teachers and the adoration they have for them is truly remarkable.
Kids R Kids is a place where my children have opportunities to creatively experience self-expression in the music they sing, the artwork they create, and the stories they not only read but experience. My children have asked me to keep some of our recyclables out for them to play in order to mimic the experiences they had with playing and learning about the grocery store and shopping experiences. Had I not understood the significance of this experience at day-care, I would not have been so willing to have empty 4-litre milk jugs and empty food boxes in my living room!
The Parent Nights that are held at the day-care are important and meaningful to us as a family and allows us to gain a better understanding of our children’s programs. They provide an opportunity to connect with the teachers and director and to understand our children’s development and growth within the program. The teachers are very willing and happy to discuss our girls within their particular program. I always look forward to the next one!
I am always delighted to know that Kids R Kids connects with the community in ways such as the Muscular Dystrophy Hop-A-Thon, Dress-Up for Breast Cancer Awareness and the Salvation Army Angel Tree at Christmas. These events allow the children to begin to understand the importance of philanthropy and that as individuals they play an important part in society at such an early age.
Kids R Kids has truly enriched our lives and continues to help us see the world through our children’s eyes.
Sincerely, BM, parent of two
