Miss Barbara,

I just wanted you to know how fortunate I feel to have Isabella at your school and also to be able to serve as a room mother.

I appreciate the time you spend talking to me about my concerns/questions regarding Isabella. During this important time of her life she is lucky to be around such caring people.

Please feel free to give me any comments or feedback regarding my role as room mother. I look forward to assisting WGBCDS in any way possible.

Best Regards,

Rebecca Absi

Dear Barbara-

We cannot tell you enough how much we have enjoyed being a part of your school family. We are so glad that both Nathan and Mia were able to experience such an enriching environment. The things they have learned continue to amaze us each and every day. You and your staff have definitely helped us to lay a strong foundation as we are soon to embark on the primary years of school. We will miss all of you very much and will always be thankful for the kindness and patience you have shown.

It has been a wonderful year watching Taylor grow and coming out of her shell.
Thank you for showing her how to express herself.

Dear Barbara,

Just a note to say thanks for the FUN Easter  party on Friday.  Rachel said it was the “most fun day of her whole life”—even more fun than Disneyland!!!  Thanks again for all you do.

-Miss Barbara,

Many thanks for your energy and flexibility in providing an opportunity for me to volunteer in Hannah’s classroom! I so enjoyed meeting Hannah’s classmates and seeing you and Miss Leah in action.  Both my husband and I are pleased to have Hannah participating in GBCDS’s  program – and Hannah says “it’s great”! We’re happy to support your school in whatever way we can. Thanks for all you do.

Best Wishes,

Tracy Shows


Thank heavens for your school!

I am so happy that we found your school. Julian went to 3 other preschools before we found you, and all I can say is WOW have you changed my child’s life and personality! You are doing a wonderful job and have hired some great women to teach our children!

Thank you and good luck in the years to come!  We will see you in 2009 with Laila Grace!

Clinton, Aurili and Julian

P.S. Miss Barbara,  
I will always remember you squeezing my cheeks!



Carson’s second year at your school has been another incredible chapter in his life. I feel blessed to watch him grow everyday.  I truly feel that WGBCDS has been a fantastic input on Carson’s growth.  He loves going to school, picking him up each day from class always puts a smile on my face as I listen to him share his day.

You have an amazing staff of teachers. Miss Malia and Miss Kim really connected with Carson to help bring out his love to learn.

We look forward to the new school year in September.

Have a wonderful summer.

Thank you!

Dear Barbara,

Our family wants you to know how grateful we are for your guidance, devotion and care for McKenna.  You are so genuine in your concern and love for your students, and it really shows.

Thank you for making GBCDS such a wonderful environment and positive first exposure
to school for our children.

This has been a rewarding and fulfilling year of preschool, thanks to you and your staff.

Again, thank you for a wonderful year and we look forward to next year!


T. and C. A.       (Year One)

Dear Barbara,

Thank you for providing a wonderful environment for McKenna and all the children at WGBCDS.  Your school is a loving, secure and fun place for children to learn and grow.   I think the social skills were the biggest changes witnessed in those little souls.

As you know, leaving your child in someone else’s care is a difficult thing for many parents, but you made it easy because the kids all loved to be there.

It’s hard to believe two years have already gone by!  Thank you  so much for everything you did for McKenna. You made preschool a wonderful experience for her.


T.and C.  A.     (Year Two)

Miss Barbara-

We have had an amazing 5th year (two children attended) at your school. Thank you so much for providing the best environment I could ever ask for!

You are the best and I always speak highly of my experience at WGBCDS!!!

Thank you for a wonderful preschool for Hannah these past two years!

Your school is unsurpassed and we’ve loved our experiences here!

All the best,

Gabby has learned and grown so much in the time she has spent here with you and the teachers.  It’s been such a stimulating and nurturing environment. Thank you for having this school and for all you do for the kids.  Gabby and I will miss you!
