... Comments from families and colleagues:
AELFrom a Mom & Dad departing after two years: "This center is such a special place... M. has loved her time here... so thankful you've been able to be so great in the middle of a pandemic." Aug 2021

sil A parent wrote: "I absolutely believe 100% that Heart and Hands prepared S. for preschool. Her logic, persistence, consistency have only flourished. Back in February I had a meeting with S's teacher and she said that S. was more focused than her 4 and 5 year old classmates. At this time S. was still 3. That was amazing to hear and I give all the credit to your school." Aug 2021

sil From a family with us through infancy and toddlerhood: "Thank you so much for taking such amazing care of D. for the last 3 years. He has grown to be a curious, energetic, and compassionate boy... we couldn't have done it without all of you." July 2021

sil From a current parent: "I can tell N is well-taken care of, and I'm so appreciative that you've made such a comfortable home for her...." June 2021

AEL From a family soon to move on : "Crazy to think it’s been a year and a half since we joined your school! I’m amazed by how much N. has developed under your care, thank you." April 2021

sil From a Mom: "Thanks for all that you do! My baby is so happy at your school." Oct 2020

CH "Putting your child in the hands of strangers is a terrifying thing, but we quickly grew very comfortable... because it was so apparent how well cared for and loved she was... she loves going each day." Sep 2020

DW From a departing parent: "All our gratitude for walking us and E. through these first few years. We were all lucky to have you in our lives." Aug 2020

CH Another departing parent writes: "Thank you for all the good work and support in this year that L. attended H&H! As a family moving to a new country we were concerned on how he would adapt to the new culture and language and we are thankful that we found your school. We appreciate the patience you all had and also the efforts to understand how to help him to thrive. I’m sure that other families feels the same way, welcomed and supported, and I thought you should know the good impacts your work can cause in the community!" Aug 2020

From a former parent with a new baby: " We all think of you and the Heart and Hands staff so often. H. is an independent and thriving three-year old with a kind and strong spirit (due in no small part to his time at Heart and Hands). We also have another son, L., born in April. I'm writing on the off-chance that there might be an opening at Heart and Hands."

sil From a family moving on: : "As first-time parents we cannot begin to describe the gratitude we have for Heart and Hands and the teachers for providing such a warm, nurturing environment for our little man to grow, thrive, and build his independence. It is apparent how happy and comfortable he feels at his school." Aug 2019

CH From a current dad: "Both of our children started here as infants and the time has come for our youngest to move on.
