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.
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.
