In Their Own Words.


My daughter, Scarlett, is 5 years old and she has been at The Caring Center since she was an infant. When I visited The Caring Center, I felt the warmth of everyone in the organization, from the greetings at the door to information sessions for parents. The teachers and children were engaged, and the classrooms were organized. Most importantly, the children were laughing and smiling! Thank you, Caring Center!

THANK YOU to all the staff and teachers at The Caring Center. Gabriel’s year there was characterized by positive experiences. From the first moment, you welcomed us and facilitated Gabriel’s entry into the school. In his time in both the Toddler room and TPK, it was always clear to us that he was nurtured and respected, and that both his emotional and intellectual growth was fostered. We appreciated the effort of all of his teachers. Gabriel’s experiences at The Caring Center contributed to his love and enthusiasm for school.

During the four years Lucas spent at The Caring Center, we were most appreciative of the wonderful care and attention he received. This was consistent from his first day as a toddler to his last day in Pre-K. We are so thankful we found The Caring Center, because you truly partnered with us in the development of Lucas during these critical early years.
