I would like to extend my gratitude to the amazing new child care center in our small town of Wenatchee. As a former preschool teacher for Bright Horizons, having high expectations for your own child’s education is a given however, living in a small town with very little options for quality care is scarce. I am so grateful to the TEAMS staff and their wonderful center that has provided care for my 1.5-year-old son for the last few months. While he may only attend 3-9 hrs a week, Teacher Joy and Teacher Cara have shown him so much love and affection that it has created such a strong and loving bond between them. My son is also able to socialize with other children of all ages which has been helping his language skills. My son has learned basic skills that have made him an independent little guy such as washing his hands to eat, helping clean the table after dinner and sweeping. My son is only 1.5 but continuing and modeling these behaviors at home have strengthened his abilities to become a responsible young man.
Teacher Joy always has daily pictures of the children's interactions at school along with activities for the day and let me tell how proud it makes a momma feel to see your child engaged with other children in these activities at such a young age. I have learned that my son loves to hug and show affection to others at school and he is well on his way to learning empathy. Sometimes it is difficult for full time working parents to teach these lessons to your children but thank goodness for his amazing teachers who get the ball rolling as we incorporate their methods at home.
Thank you to all the TEAMS staff for their wealth of knowledge and their inviting atmosphere that allows us parents to just hang out at the center with our children. As a first time parent, it is good to know that we have supportive staff to help us raise our children.
