I do not write testimonials. In fact, this is the first one I’ve ever written. Because, quite frankly, nobody can meet my standards, especially when it comes to my children. Lena is my exception. She is an outstanding childcare provider and works very hard at making her daycare the very best it can be. She sincerely loves children and is so good at giving them all the love and attention they deserve. I know this because every day I visit my daughter at lunch and experience firsthand the interactions and atmosphere that is felt. She is excellent in communicating with the children, always being positive, gentle, and getting down to their level. The children love her and it’s clear why.
She is great at making each child feel special. For example, since my daughter is one of the few girls there, Lena ensures she gets in her ‘girl time’ by braiding and creating my daughter’s hair into amazing hairstyles. I can’t wait to see my daughter at lunch to see what kind of style her hair will be that day! And when I arrive, my daughter beams with pride and excitement when I comment on her hair!
The facility itself is equally outstanding. It is always clean, organized, and there is no shortage of toys and games. The outdoor area is fantastic – very large and has many play structures. It’s like going to the park every day!
She provides a variety of nutritious, beautiful snacks for the children every day, and lists them on her board so you know what your child has eaten that day.
The very best part of her daycare is that it’s not a daycare at all – it’s a high-quality preschool! Since my daughter is close to entering kindergarten, I am very happy that Lena teaches the children days of the week, seasons, etc. by making it fun, light and age appropriate. She even brought in caterpillars and the children got to experience them turn into butterflies and hold them in their hands and release them outside!
I also love that twice a week, Lena brings in a music teacher and storytime lady to offer the children different flavours of fun, entertainment, and interactions. It is clear Lena works very hard, and takes much pride in her daycare. This testimonial is the very least I could do to thank her for the high quality care and love my daughter receives every day.
