I truly appreciate your service. Being the owner of a 24hr Family Daycare Facility has all types of challenges in today's market; efficient time management being a main one. Being able to educate myself (not only to meet requirements but to truly enhance my development) is essential to maintaining the quality service I hope to provide. Being able to do it, as time allows, is a blessing truly appreciated. Your course-work provides thought provoking insight into the care and nurturing of the little ones that grace my portals and for that I commend you. - Baltimore, Maryland
