The services our Center received from FSMC are considered most valuable and has strengthened the quality of care offered at our child care center. As a Director of this Center that provides full time, year round care for 90 children, I am able to attest to this and with deep admiration and appreciation and value the years Family Services freely gave to our agency. Through their assistance, seven staff member received training and successfully achieved CDA certification. Recently, a Parent Group was offered that focused on the difficulties parents are faced with today. The Early Childhood Consultants provided professional development for our staff and individual parents benefited from their support when they were overwhelmed with various issues their children were going through. Our Center has been in operation for 44 years and our partnership with Family Services has been for the same time period. This is truly a unique organization that cares for the community. and because of their commitment, our Center has enhanced the quality of care to the families and children we serve.

I have been a Morristown Child Care Director for the past 16 years. I rely on Family Servcies for the excellent trainng they have offerd for my staff and I over the years. They have provided training in The DECA Assessment of Emotional/Social Development of Young Children, The Importance of Play, The Temperaments of Children, and many more too numerous to list. Our center Chuildren's Corner was picked to be a part of the Step BY Step Program run by Family Services which helped us to achieve NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children)accreditation two years ago. They have provided a Parenting Consultant who is also a Early Childhood Specialist who can consult with aprents and staff. The staff at Family Services are extremely dedicated to the children that they serve.
