I hope everyone has stayed cool during the heat wave this week and that you are all looking forward to a refreshing long weekend. This past Monday, we celebrated yet another milestone within the organization – the opening of our 28th school, Little Sprouts Medford. I want to thank everyone in the Home Office for supporting all the efforts needed in relation to the school: from building, enrolling, and hiring, to organization and setup. Most of all, however, I want to shine the spotlight on Missy Raduazzo, the newest member of our team and the Executive Director of Little Sprouts Medford. Regional Director Jackie Kebabjian’s words describing Missy’s tireless dedication to our newest school say it best:
“From day one, Missy has taken onus for the Medford school as if she has been with Little Sprouts for years. She immediately began to learn systems, support sales and recruiting, and develop relationships with all departments to bring the center to fruition. Her Real Passion for putting children first – exuding Every Child, Every Day – has shown in her expectations to get everything just right for them. ‘Anything is possible’ has already been embedded in the vocabulary of the school. The purposeful engagement that this new team presents, each day, is evident from the positive reactions of the children over the past few days since the school opened. They already feel at home! We are so fortunate to have a solid base to start off our 28th school on a path to much success.”
I, personally, second Jackie’s sentiments whole-heartedly. Missy has embraced her role with Little Sprouts from the moment she began. She has devoted countless hours to ensuring the school was fully prepared for the seamless, wonderful kickoff that it enjoyed this past week. She is supported by a compassionate team that helped at every opportunity, from setup in the school to supporting our other schools while patiently waiting for the opening of Little Sprouts Medford. Such a clear representation of our values, demonstrated so early in their journey at Little Sprouts, clearly shows Missy and her team are invaluable additions to our family – and Showing Results already.
