Thank you for caring
April 15, 2010 - Betsy Bethel
I distinctly remember two things about nursery school, circa 1977:
These days, I am thankful for the teachers and staff at The King's Daughters Child Care Center in Wheeling, where my daughter attends two days a week. Jeanie Hores, who has been with the center 30 years, and her staff do an amazing job with these youngsters! Miss Mary Lou (Birkett) has worked with King's Daughters for 29 years, as a caregiver but mostly as the "cooker." Her recent award as a Champion for Children was richly deserved. Thanks for getting my daughter to eat peas, Miss Mary Lou!
I also want to recognize my mother-in-law, Jane McFarland, who cares for Emma three days a week at home and has done since Emma was 2 months old, with rarely a day off in four years! She's 79 and says Emma keeps her going. Thanks, Mom!
Day care workers and preschool teachers are a breed apart. They love our children and want to see them learn and thrive. They make a huge impact on our little ones' lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to those who have touched mine and my daughter's lives and to the dozens and dozens of others in the Ohio Valley and across the nation.
