Waypoint does so much for families in and around the area; from women and children's services to Christmas gift giveaways to the community food bank, Waypoint's contributions to our community are appreciated. We use their school age services, and I feel that Jaina, the instructor at our site, genuinely cares about my children.

Waypoint has been a huge life- changer for me. They have helped me with the most difficult times in my life. They have convinced me that I do deserve better in life. Me and my children do not have to hurt or be hurt anymore. There staff are some of the most supportive, empowering women I have ever met in my life. Thank you so much to all who help support them and us. They have given me a new look on life and possibly life itself.

Waypoint was a god-send for me 4 years ago when I was in need of childcare for my youngest daughter. I really didn't want to pay a lot of money to send my child to an in- home daycare that I wasn't sure of. Someone suggested Waypoint Uptown Kids. Oh. My. Gosh. From the minute I walked in there with her, I knew this is where I wanted my daughter to be. Chris, her lead teacher in the Blue Room along with Ginny and Carla (who would become her lead teacher in Purple) were wonderful. When Carla moved to Purple Room to be a lead teacher, she took me aside and explained that she was moving and wanted me to know for Katy's sake. They comforted her when she went through the separtion that first week, got down on the floor and played, did crafts, and were so helpful with any concerns I had. Each room that my daughter transitioned to was the same. Helpful, caring and incredibly knowledgeable staff. Even though she is now in 1st grade, my daughter always wants to go visit and see Miss Kim, or see Diane at the front desk. Whenever anyone asks me where to go for child care, Waypoint Uptown Kids is the first answer out of my mouth. No hesitations.
