We wanted to take the time to thank all of the staff of Children of America, Salem Church for the excellent care that has been given to our daughter Simone. So many times people only write when things are wrong, but I want to let you know that things are very right at COA-SC.
When we started our search for childcare for our daughter we never thought we would find a place that would make us feel 100% confident in leaving our child in the care of others but we did. I had visited 4 childcare facilities and none gave me the feeling I got when I visited COA. From the first time thru the door I knew there was something special at COA. Mrs. Lori was the only director out of all the facilities to take the time to go over what I thought was every single important detail of what we should expect while Simone was at COA. Being first time parents, I felt like she sensed my insecurities about having Simone in daycare but she made me feel good about COA. I can honestly say that whenever I have had a concern, she or Ms Emily have addressed them. I feel that when you have leaders like Mrs. Lori and Ms. Emily you can only expect the best from everyone else at COA-SC.
I never imagined that in sending Simone to COA we would gain another family for her. We are excited about the care that Simone is receiving at COA. Her teachers Mrs. Charity and Mrs. Lasharrie are AMAZING, they're GREAT. Not only are they excellent with Simone, they have helped my husband and I learn ways to encourage her development. Most importantly we see the smile on her face in the morning when she arrives to her class!!!
Thank you again for providing a safe and nourishing environment for our daughter Simone. Thank you to ALL of the staff at COA-SC.

I am writing this letter today to compliment Mr. Chris, Center Director at COA Winchester, Virginia.
Upon arrival to pick my children up the other day, Mr. Chris was traveling room-to-room while singing and playing his guitar. The kids were overjoyed with excitement and singing and dancing right along! We in fact delayed our departure by 20 minutes to stay and enjoy the "concert".
I have many options available to me when choosing a daycare/preschool facility for my children, but it's moments like these that remind me that I made the correct choice in selecting Children of America! In my opinion, this extra level of enrichment is extremely beneficial in enhancing my children's development. My children both thoroughly enjoy going to "school" each day, and I know that it is because of Mr. Chris along with the other teachers at the center.
I just wanted to make sure that Mr. Chris's manager was aware of the extraordinary efforts he makes to ensure that the children in his care are happy and enriched! I hope that he will pass this along to you with my compliments of a "Job Well Done, Mr. Chris!"
