Thoughts from our parents...
"Honestly the whole place is completely inspiring to someone who is in Early Childhood Education. Recently someone said to me "But you have a Master's degree, why are you teaching 3-5 year olds?" Clearly that person doesn't get it, you do! You both have created an outstanding environment for young children that is so well thought out and intentional. Thank you for that, for having such high standards, for hiring and keeping the most caring, incredibly talented, and qualified teachers, and for very obviously always going out of your way to make sure all of our children have all of their needs met and the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment. We know Trevor is lucky to be part of it all and so are we."

"Miles started his second day of school in a Beethoven shirt, so I asked him if he knows of Beethoven. He said no, so I played Moonlight Sonata and he shouts, "Hey the Carrot Patch has this song mama!!" Still realizing the great things you've done for him. Thank you for sharing the power of music and art, Carrot Patch teachers.
--Daphne, former parent
"We would like to thank you for the two years of wonderful care Daniel received while attending 'The Patch.' He learned so many new things, made friends and generally had a great time! We also appreciate the sensitivity with which you accommodated Daniel's special needs--he was kept completely safe yet always participated fully."

"Time flies! I still remember being in your brand new office pleading for a spot for my 3 month old baby! Thank you for partnering with us in the raising and education of our firstborn, and for educating us along the way--we learned a lot :) as did Celeste. You and your staff have always been professional and great and we would never have such an amazing daughter if it had not been for the wonderful high quality education, curriculum, experience and environment you have provided.
--Pieter and Hester, parents of a graduate
"Thank you for providing the girls with such a warm inviting and loving place to learn and grow. We appreciate your commitment to hiring highly-qualified teachers and of course for the amazing Nature Classroom! After all they have been through, you have helped the girls maintain such an important stability in their lives. Thanks for making the Carrot Patch a place where we feel safe sending our kids!"
