Happy Motherโ€™s Day to all the great Moms, Step-Moms, Grandmothers, Aunts and all motherly figures!
CCCLC wishes you a wonderful day ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒธ

[05/07/20]   Logan has had all great teachers, but having Ju-ju help him by providing delicious food while he was learning to eat as a baby helped get him off of his G-tube early. He loves her!

[05/07/20]   "We have been so thankful for all the teachers at CCCLC both present and past over the past 4.5 years that our children have been attending. From the very beginning our first baby had the full attention of Ms. Kellie and they have a special bond that will never be broken. Both of our children were late talkers so the sign language Ms. Ruthie taught to both in the toddlers was paramount and greatly improved communication. In the twos are oldest son enjoyed learning and growing from Ms. Alex. And then we have our Ms. Heather. Our son has benefited from her teaching the longest because they have moved through a couple classes together. He loves learning from her because she is such a patient and kind teacher. Heather has helped him grow and develop while helping him learn patience and control his emotions. She is a big reason why he looks forward to going to daycare.
It is so exciting that two teachers that are children had our now the center director and executive director. Thank you for all you do and keep up the good work!"

Katie & Mike

[05/06/20]   "Mason is always so excited to see Ms. Ruthie in the morning. His eyes light up followed by a big smile. He practically leaps into her arms. It makes it a lot easier to leave him knowing he is so loved and cared for by Ms. Ruthie, Ms. Joy and all the teachers. Ruthieโ€™s calm demeanor and warm smile is always comforting.

Ms. Julie has been a rock since we started at CCCLC in February of 2016. She covers so many roles and is always friendly and welcoming. She does an awesome job with the meals. Preparing two meals and a snack every day for so many children takes talent and Ms. Julie pulls it off seamlessly. I am convinced that our boys eat so well because of Julieโ€™s variety of delicious food. We never make them a separate meal and they eat well. Iโ€™ve been very appreciative of this and especially ever since she told me Connor had a second helping of chick pea soup when he was around 18 months old. Thank you Ms. Julie for all you do!"

[05/06/20]   The moment we would enter the center in the morning, Josephine would perk up and get excited. She definitely misses everyone at CCCLC! She had a rough winter being sick every other week but on her healthy days she was anxious to get back to Ms. Lindsey and her pals.

I would also like to note, I tried to do a cutesy finger painting project like the ones that are being done in class. It did NOT go well. I don't know how ya'll get it done!

So, to all the staff a CCCLC, thank you for all you do. Josie, myself, and my husband appreciate your hard work.

- The Stahls

Today Ms. Kellie and Ms. Alex went on a road trip today and delivered succulents and candy to ALL of our teachers to show our appreciation for all their hard work ๐Ÿฅณ

CCCLC would โ€œSUCCโ€ without them!!

Thank you to all of our teachers for everything you do!!! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š

[05/05/20]   Ms. Lindsay has been amazing as Zephyrโ€™s teacher. He lights up when he sees her and that makes our hearts feel good knowing our son feels so comfortable with her. We couldnโ€™t have asked for a better teacher for our son. Now if only he would sleep for mommy and daddy like he does for Ms. Lindsay at daycare we would be golden. ๐Ÿ˜Š

[05/05/20]   Ms. Alex and Mrs. Kellie- You both have handled an unprecedented pandemic with unbelievable grace, poise and have simultaneously balanced it with positivity. You are both wise beyond your years and the children, staff and families are incredibly lucky to have such amazing leadership at CCCC.

Juju- Since we moved here as โ€œOut-of-Townersโ€ five years ago you have taken our family in as your family and have truly cared for both our children as your own. I will never be the cook you are, and my children remind me this at least weekly. You have a heart of gold and I say it all the time- The world could use more Jujus!

Ms. Sarah- Sarah has become invaluable to our family, giving the girls familiarity to their โ€œteacherโ€ while not at school and allowing Andy and I to balance work and child-rearing. She is incredibly sweet, patient and the girls adore her. Maddie said โ€œI love you, you are really nice and playful to me and Charlie!โ€

Ms. Heather- Whenever day are gets back in session, Charlie is excited to go to to โ€œMs. Headersโ€ big kid class all day long to play with her and her friends! She misses Ms. Heatherโ€™s hugs and playing โ€œslimeโ€ with her.

[05/04/20]   I'm not sure where to begin. Lucas has been a student at CCCLC since May 2016. He has had so many good teachers and so many great experiences. I know he misses his teachers and friends very much right now.

We would like to send a thank you to all the teachers who have helped him learn and grow into such a great kiddo and wish them all a much deserved Happy Teacher Appreciation Week.

Lucas also says,
"I love you Ms Heather. Thank you for coming to teach me things and for lots of hugs".
"I miss you Ms Julie. I love your food and everything you teach me".

[05/04/20]   "Emily loves HER Ms. JuJu who always makes time to give her a hug when she comes in looking for her.

Ms. Heather has so much patience and energy to engage Emily :)

Emily misses Miss Leigh Ann and has been asking to see her."

[05/04/20]   This week during Teacher Appreciation Week, we will be posting messages from our parents expressing how grateful they are for our AMAZING teachers!
We couldn't do what we do if it wasn't for them!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week to our WONDERFUL teachers at CCCLC ๐ŸŽ‰

We have amazing teachers who show great dedication! Especially during these uncertain times ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š
