"We are foster parents and have had our kids in your PBG location since January 2015 when we first took them into our home. Liam graduated from VPK in June and was adopted by his aunt and uncle. Abigail is being returned to her father tomorrow, much to our sadness. Today will be her last day with Ms. Mary.
First of all, I want to sing the praises of your staff. Jessica has been so helpful getting the kids started, and in and out as they returned to their mom and came back to us a couple of times. From Abigail starting in the infant room, moving to Angela and now with Mary, all the teachers have loved on our little girl, have joined us as we teach her to be a good student, friend, and citizen, and have taught her things that simply fascinate us. They have also been patient and accommodating as case managers, therapists, guardian ad litem and biological family have disrupted their schedules. These teachers have regarded her as precious, as do we.
Secondly, we have, in the past, looked at other preschools, for as you know, ELC does not cover your full tuition. We decided when we began fostering, that we would give to our foster children the same things that we have our own children. Home Away From Home FAR exceeds the standards in others we have visited. Your school is impeccably clean and full of new and updated toys and learning tools. I found your school when I was working off Northlake Blvd. and although I have not worked for a year and a half, we have chosen to keep our children at HAFH, in spite of the 20-minute drive, because of your high standards.
We know that these standards are made by leadership, so we thank you for modeling these standards. Thank you for running a school where our children have felt loved and comfortable, and for coming alongside us as we raise these precious ones."
