Learning goes well in Candyland

Back on March 1, 2007 was the very first day of day care for our precious little daughter at Candyland Daycare in Oak Harbor. As first time parents, we were not sure what to expect. Would our daughter be safe, would she get the attention that she needed, would she be happy and learn the basics that every child should know as they grow up, and would she get along with the other children?

Within days, our fears and concerns were completely eliminated. My husband and I quickly realized then Candyland Daycare was home for our daughter. We would tell our family and friends they were like family and they provided us with a great feeling knowing that our little girl was always safe at Candyland Daycare.

When our daughter turned 3 years old, we enrolled her in Candyland Preschool. It was a blessed thing to see our daughter develop and grow even more and to see her learn to share with other children and to respect her elders along with respecting other children. Our daughter cares for other people and relishes in helping other people. We attribute this positive trait to Candyland Daycare and preschool and their teaching methods.

She has learned many things including her alphabets and numbers, coloring and writing skills, manners, and health habits, just to mention a few. She would come home with great projects, crafts, lessons, and stories of the fun things she did each day. Candyland has provided her a base from which she can develop and learn from and are valuable things for a child in an important stage of their young life. For that, she is ready for kindergarten!

It is unfair to put our feelings onto a page with words and sentences but it is the least we can do to express our incredible appreciation for her dedication to our daughter and other children that she provides care for.

Our final words for the day are thank you for everything that you have done. My husband and I will never forget you for the positive influence you have had on our little girl. Our appreciation will be eternal.
