We understand, no matter how well prepared and excited a family may be, the newness can be a little scary for everybody. We don't consider any questions or concerns you have to be unimportant or silly. 

Sometimes saying goodbye isn’t easy. We recommend you keep it reassuring, short and sweet. Prolonging the inevitable often does not help the situation. Ten minutes or so should do it; however, we will not rush you and respect your right to decide how to best handle the situation with your child.

We are committed to provide an environment that will give your child every opportunity to develop to their greatest potential. We sincerely hope this will be the beginning of a rewarding and trusting relationship between your family and our staff!
