My daughters and I have been members of the Childcare Resources family for nearly 5 years. The program is fantastic, and quite honestly, I don't know what I would do without it. As a single working mother its always a struggle to make ends meet, and the cost of childcare at a reputable facility is out of reach for me without their help. Like all parents, I want nothing more than for my children to be successful in their lives so its important to me that they attend an educational facility with trusted instructors, and not be at a baby sitters home watching cartoons all day. Childcare Resources allows me to keep my children in a high quality NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accredited childcare facility without the fear of not being able to put food on the table. As a result, when my daughter (now 7 years old) graduated from the VPK program end entered kindergarten, she was already able to read. At her last grading period (A-B Honor Roll!), her 2nd grade teacher asked my permission to have her tested for the gifted program. I couldn't be more proud of her! I truly believe that her early educational experience while enrolled in the Childcare Resources program has had a direct impact on her success thus far, and for that I am sincerely thankful to them. Everyone at Childcare Resources is very kind and makes you feel like family. They really want to make a difference, and it shows. I am very fortunate to have found them.

I have a lot of friends in other counties (Brevard, St Lucie) who would greatly benefit from the help of Childcare Resources. Maybe one day, they will be able to expand into surrounding counties so their help can cover a larger area.
