Dear Larissa,

We have been at Home Away From Home for a little over a year now. As one of the original families at the WBB location I want to say we are very sad to leave. I wanted to make sure to write to you as I feel often time parents spend so much time complaining that you rarely get to hear the positive feedback. As a health care provider I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of the WBB school. My son was constantly sick at his last day care and once changed to this location he rarely had to miss school for illness. In addition my 5 month old spent a short 4 weeks at...

Great day to you. I met Ms. Giovanina Francois right before my son, Dominic Zion Extermine

transitioned into the 1 year toddler room. I am very happy to say she is a pleasure. I am impressed that she speaks three languages: English, Spanish and Creole which is superb because our son is half Haitian and she is able to communicate with my husband in both English and Creole.

When I enter the 1 year toddler room I see how her and the other teachers are doing fun and

educational activities with the children. Ms. Gionvanina has a very warm and sweet demeanor. I see it shine...

“To All the great ladies at Home Away From Home,

I just wanted to take a minute to recognize Miss Yessy in the Infant Room (Village Commons Location). Every evening I pick up my daughter Rylee, it warms my heart to see the genuine and caring interaction between Miss Yessy and my daughter. I just know Rylee looks forward to her one on one time with Miss Yessy at the end of the day as a working mom who gets caught in I95 traffic – Miss Yessy makes me feel more at ease too!”

“Dear Larissa,

We want to take a quick moment of your time to send a letter of praise regarding Mrs. Jennifer Kendrick. She is our son’s VPK teacher this year, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of her teaching, and her demeanor and care as a professional.

Zander scored perfectly on his second Kindergarten Readiness Assessment, and we credit the majority of his outstanding achievement to Mrs. Kendrick. We are truly amazed at his development this year. We know he will be ahead of the curve once he starts Kindergarten, thanks to her amazing foundation!

“Dear Marlene,

Thank you for helping to take such good care of Lydia during her time at your location! I visited 7 daycares in the area, and one of them main reasons why I picked Home Away From Home is beacause on the day I showed up unannounced, you gave me a thourough tour of the entire building and patiently answered all of my questions. When the day came for me to drop off Lydia and return to work, you were waiting for us at the front desk, walked us back to the infant room, and handed me a tissue when I started to cry. When I returned that afternoon to pick her up, I found her...

I truly & sincerely love you all. Thanks for an awesome 5 years :)”



Jenny Benedict & Baby Kale (Palm Beach Gardens)

“Putting my son in daycare and choosing the right facility was not a decision I took lightly, and I feel blessed to have found Home Away From Home. As much as I wish I could stay home with my son, I am grateful that he is being taken care of by your caring, professional, and knowledgeable hands. We will miss all of you, especially his wonderful teachers – Cynthia, Mildrey, Aida, & Gabby. Thank you for all you have done!”

“Dear Laura,

Thank you for helping to take such good care of Lydia during her time at your location! You were the first person I communicated with and you made a really good impression! You responded to my initial emails right away, were friendly and helpful the first time I called, and were such a cheerful presence at the fornt desk the first time I visited. For a new mommy who was also new to the whole daycare routine, your warmth and profesionalism was one of the factors that led me to choose this daycare for Lydia. You have continued to be a cheerful presence every morning and...



Jenny Benedict


It is with true sincerity that I say THANK YOU for taking such good care of Kale! I’m sad to have to move him to the Jupiter location because he is so happy here. He loves coming here every morning, and though it’s hard for me not to be with him every day, it lightens my heart to know I am leaving him with people who love & care for him. Ms. Ashley, Ms. April, Ms. Dee, Ms. Alianna, Ms. Leslie, Ms. May, Ms. Leda, Ms. Madelin, Ms. Elsa, & Ms. Dianet: I am so grateful to each of you for being a part of Kale’s life & helping him learn & grow. You have been...


Thank you


“Thank you – so much for each and everyone of you that have made such a positive impact on Bella’s life. Words can’t explain how much she has learned and became as a little girl while she attended school with you all.”
