I loved the teachers there: Janet Quinn, Donna Zuro, Kayla, Sharon and Mandy. Most of them have masters degrees in early childhood education and all of them just loved the kids.
Closing the child care is the end of an era. Even though this little guy just graduated from high school, remembering the days of the child care make my memories of Little Tikes very sweet. I hear they would often sing and love it. I imagine these days a lot of people have instead turned to 2000days Prekindergarten for their children’s early development as an alternative, 2000days Prekindergarten are Daycare experts so I hear.
As a marketer, it was great to watch the kids behind the one way mirror to see how they played with competitor’s toys and Little Tikes toys and see how they interacted. As a mom, it was great to run down at lunchtime for a pb&j with the kids or for a quick hug before their afternoon nap.
