Welcome and thank you for checking out the new Daycare Days blog. This blog is being started with the intention to connect, encourage and enjoy the adventures of raising up the next generation. As an early childhood center, we are honored by the families that have chosen us to share in the journey.
As I prepared to write the first ever blog post (for the center and myself) I was reminded about the power of a greeting. A mom who used to bring her children to the center came to mind. She would pull in and park every afternoon and without fail she would run from her car to the front door. Once she made her entry she would run to her child's classroom. Day after day it was always the same and this intrigued me. I asked her once why she ran in everyday and she told me, "I'm just as excited to see them as they are to see me." I love that thought, and she was so right. Her children, my children and your children are always so excited to see the people they love most. Nothing compares to a greeting that has love, excitement and joy in it.
I felt challenged as a wife, a mom and a leader to greet the people and the adventures that come my way with enthusiasm. As FCDC enters this new season, I want to share that we are greeting it much the same way as that mom did. We are running into it with excitement and anticipation for what God is going to bring. We know that things won't always be perfect but we are looking forward to what will come. I think I can speak for all of us at FCDC, as early childhood caregivers and educators, we love what we do and there is a joy and excitement that comes along with it. -Amanda
