“I would just like to write a quick note to tell you how wonderful the Elma EduKids is and how awesome your staff is. For the past week or two when we come to pick up Hailey, she runs to one of the teachers and sits on their laps or gives them a big hug. Dan and myself think this is awesome because it's an outward expression on how much she loves it there and how great the teachers are. She doesn't want to come home! Haha! The teachers in her room are always so personable to us, and they always let us know how she did that day and tell us little stories about what may have happened or something she did during the day and we just love that. All of the teachers that are regularly in her yellow duck room are amazing - miss Lisa , miss Sarah and miss Rachelle. I also am always amazed when I bring her there very early in the morning some days how there are multiple other teachers from many other rooms in the building and they all know her name and are eager to play with her, get her breakfast, and get her situated. As a parent, that is so huge and I thank them all for that.
The other day I came home from work and Dan had already picked up Hailey. He told me how one of the teachers (miss Jess - from the bluebird room) was laying on the ground with one of the kids and she was reading a book and helping to teach the child colors through reading that specific book. He said he was so impressed by that. Not only is EduKids a place that takes care of Hailey and watches over her during the day... but it's also a place that furthers her skills, knowledge and interaction with others. This is all because of you and your wonderful staff. We just wanted to say THANK YOU for the awesome job you guys do and thank you for the little things that you guys don't HAVE to do but do because you care for the children! Thanks for going above and beyond!”

"My son started at EduKids in Elma when he was just 3 months old. I was nervous about leaving my first born to go back to work but everyone immediately put me at ease. His birthday is in November, so he started Kindergarten when he was still just 4 years old, but he was completely prepared, more so than some of the older kids in fact. I know that is due in tremendous part to the effort his teachers put in over the years and I am beyond grateful for that. My daughter is part of the EduKids family now too and I would recommend EduKids (especially Elma!) to anyone."

"My son has been at EduKids since he was 10 weeks old. He is now 18 months old and has an impressive vocabulary, largely due to the play-based activities, crafts and lessons he has been receiving at EduKids with his outstanding teachers.
I am a working mom and wish so much that I could be there to teach my son new skills, but that just isn't feasible for my family. And truthfully, I don't know that I could have fostered his high level of development without his teachers. I rely on their expertise and experience to help me understand typical young child development, behaviors, and possible health concerns. They also give great suggestions on how to help at home.
Most importantly, I know my son is safe, loved, and well cared for when I leave him at EduKids each day because his teachers treat him like their own. I feel like we made a great choice with EduKids and our son gets exceptional care for the tuition that we pay."
