Testimonials from families who have benefited from Child Care Resource Center…

I am writing this letter to say thank you to the teacher and CCRC for my son’s Head Start education. You have done the best job getting him ready for kindergarten. I know he was in a safe environment and the meals you give the kids are healthy. He knows about fruits and vegetables and has pointed them out in the store. We could not afford books for him. You made sure we had some. My reading to him has helped me learn more too about being a good parent. We are keeping all of the pictures and art you helped him create during school. I think he is going to like going to his new school but only because you made him want to learn."

I was able to go back to school and finish, find a job and be able to keep it. My family benefits because it helps in extending their education, prepare for school and prevents financial hardship on us."
