The first day I dropped Alayna off too you ,I could not have imagined how hard this goodbye would be. I hired you to be her daycare provider. I expected that you would keep her safe, and teach her things like her colors, the alphabet, and how to share. At the time ,I didn't realize just how much more then that you would teach her. I didn't realize that you would become a second mother to her, and a friend to me.
I am so proud of the little girl Alayna is becoming and much of that is owed to you and your consistency and guidance. They say children learn more in their first five years than they do in an entire lifetime - thank you for your immeasurable positive influence on those formative years.
You have taught Alayna the importance of respect, patience, empathy, and determination. You have taught her how to be a good friend, and a team player. You have taught her that life sometimes isn't fair, and you have taught her how to graciously deal with that fact. with the loving environment you created, you have always made Alayna feel safe, smart and brave.
Above all else, you have treated my daughter like one of your own,proud of her accomplishments in the same wayI am, and wanting her to become the best person she can, just as I do.
Now it is time for us to move on and for good reason. Alayna is off to kindergarten and is as ready as she will ever be, thanks to you. I feel so fortunate that we found you. You truly have been the best daycare provider,teacher,and second motherto my child and for that I am eternally grateful.
