>Our Center is part of a church. Today we put an official cap on the 30 year celebration by attending the morning service at the church. The very first director was there, telling us the interesting and sometimes frustrating journey she and the church had in launching the center. Then Director spoke, very eloquently I thought. And she hates speaking publicly. In fact, she pointed out to the congregation that those of us who work in child care are frightened by adults and really dislike speaking in front of them. This she said in a funny way that garnered the intended laughs, but she was serious. And it’s true. The church as a whole recognized past and present staff and children who were current as well as those who had aged out. Many now have children of their own, in our classrooms. Neat.
Thirty years. Wow. We are truly blessed.
