Dreams do come true!

“After much careful thought and consideration I decided to go back to University and pursue my dream of becoming a teacher. My husband and I were anxious about finding appropriate care as we have two beautiful, precious daughters. Our one daughter, Victoria, has severe autism and requires constant support and supervision. We worried about finding the right care as she requires extra support as well as a staff member to physically escort her on and off the transportation vehicle. After being refused child care at several reputable centres in our area, the Y accepted us with open arms. The Y Educators have become part of our family and have even attended meetings at school, communicated important information between myself and other providers as well as requested, obtained and provided support with ‘All Kids Belong’ when Victoria needed it. I couldn’t ask for better care! I am so grateful! The Y taught my daughters to become understanding, compassionate human beings and allowed me to focus on school. Dreams do come true!”
