Babies get great care at the Boys & Girls Club
Did you know that Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley helps kids of all ages? Most people know that the Club makes a difference for school age kids, but Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley is a little different than most Boys & Girls Clubs in that we operate two licensed preschools for babies as little as six weeks old through preschoolers. Your support makes a difference to families with kids of all ages, from infants through teens.
Take a look at what one of our preschool moms had to say this week:
"My daughter has been enrolled at the center now since August and although it has been a little under 2 months I wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how much I appreciate the wonderful women who take care of my Khloe on a daily and hourly basis while she is there. As a parent with no alternative but to work, the anxiety and fear of having to let someone other than yourself or trusted family or friend care for your child is no easy task and neither is it to pick a day care center. I know I am not the only parent who goes through this and there are plenty of alternative facilities available and reviewed, trust me I checked them, my husband checked them and my inlaws checked them. When I settled on your facility I was still unsure of how my daughter or I were going to make it through this. I will never get over worrying about her, wondering about what she is doing, missing her or what I am missing out on but I do know that because of the wonderful staff, I can feel more easy while I am working knowing these women are providing geniune love, care and attention for not only my child but all the children. From drop off to pick up my daughter is as happy to see each of the teachers in her classroom as I am to see them. Their knowledge and experience in child development has not only taught me a first time mom quite a few things but I know it's helped my daughter reach a few milestones in the short time she has been here. As it is in any field of work, anyone can be hired to do a job and do it well, but it's when they go beyond as these women do that you appreciate them that much more. I look forward to my daughter's continued enrollment here with this wonderful staff. PS, your front office staff is awesome too. They are friendly, attentive and genuine."
Your support makes it possible for the Boys & Girls Club to give kids amazing care and give moms and dads peace of mind, all while keeping fees affordable for all families through our sliding scale scholarship program. Thank you for your support!
