    It’s hard to fully express what an incredible impact Beginnings has had on our family over the past year- I really can’t imagine a wa rmer and more nurturing environment for my kids. All three of our children were enrolled there this year, and so we had the opportunity to observe and appreciate how well Beginnings addresses the needs of children at every age. The teachers and staff provide a rich, nurturing environment that is uniquely attuned to each child’s personality and needs, fostering both individual and social development. I remember visiting Beginnings with my younger daughter for the first time last summer; we had been there for all of ten minutes when she announced to me that she was ready to start school, right then and there. She ran off to join other children her age, and was having so much fun that she would only agree to go home with me if I promised to bring her back as soon as possible!

    It’s been nearly a year now, and it’s amazing to see how she has blossomed under the loving guidance of her teachers. My baby has been in the infant room since he was four months old, and he has thrived under the care of his wonderful teachers. He is always all smiles when I pick him up at the end of the day; it definitely makes things easier for me as a working parent to know that my little guy is having such a great time! My oldest daughter has been attending the after-school program for the past few months, and she has had a blast. There is a bus that goes straight from her elementary school to Beginnings, which couldn’t be more convenient, and Beginnings provides a variety of stimulating activities for her, from arts and crafts to outside play time. In addition to the fun they have with their classmates, my three kids love getting to visit with each other at school as well!  We look forward to many more wonderful years at Beginnings!
