I hope you have been enjoying the fall weather as we now find ourselves in October! With September behind us comes the conclusion of another busy and bustling back-to-school season. Easily one of, if not the most challenging times of year, the span of time from late-August through September is an all-hands-on-deck period where we all come together as an organization to welcome new families, greet our returning families with renewed energy, and put our best foot forward for another fun-filled school year. It takes a remarkable amount of care, love, and energy to comfort children as they transition to new classrooms, not to mention those that are new to early education entirely. And as we all know, that is only half the battle – developing relationships with our families and putting them at ease requires a lot of tenderness and consideration as well, yet you all are able to manage this balancing act with grace and professionalism.
In the spirit of this reflection, I want this week’s message to serve as a celebration of each and every one of you – it’s because of YOU that we find ourselves settling in to another successful school year. Keep that Real Passion for Family First running high – your Every Child, Every Day attitude gives Little Sprouts the Not Daycare reputation that we embrace, and we wouldn’t be the same without you!
