I have used this provider for more than 6 months

To whom this may concern,My husband and I both work outside of the home, and wanting our children to have a small, intimate child care setting, we chose to look for an in-home provider with the help of county resources. After interviewing several possible candidates, we finally pulled up to Liz’s home and knew within minutes we had found a needle in the haystack. We were so grateful that she felt we would be a good fit for her program, as well.Liz provided childcare for our oldest daughter beginning in August of 2005. Our daughter felt completely safe and secure in Liz’s home. For example, our daughter struggled with some separation anxiety at drop off; However, Liz was always supportive, and helped to come up with ways to ward off the tears, and make drop offs easier for my daughter, and for me. It didn’t take our daughter, or us, long to realize that she was in very safe hands.Being a mom herself, Liz has a very nurturing personality. She always exhibited patience and kindness when working with children. By modeling this behavior, she was able to teach the children how to interact respectfully with one another. When conflicts did arise, she always remained calm, and helped the children work through their differences, teaching them how to work, play, and problem solve together.Liz also offered various educational activities, as well as healthy snacks and meals. Her home was always clean and kept child proof. But what I respected most about Liz’s child care was how selective she was about the families she cared for. She understood that with every child that entered her childcare came the family values and beliefs that they were learning at home. Because our daughter was spending a great deal of her day with these children, it was very important to us that she was interacting with children and adults who would expose her to what we felt were appropriate and respectful behaviors. Liz’s selection process ensured just that.When our second child was born, we had no hesitation at all leaving our infant with Liz. We had been able to watch the way she interacted with children of all ages, and knew that our newborn would be in very safe, nurturing hands while we were away. There is nothing harder than leavingyour newborn in someone else’s care, and Liz made the transition so much easier for our family.It was with great sadness that our daughters left Liz’s child care. In the summer of 2009, a change in employment forced us to look for childcare in a new location. While we were very sad to leave, we were also grateful for the years we were able to spend with Liz. It is with great easethat I would recommend Liz as a child care provider for any other family in need of child care services. She can most certainly offer everything a family would be looking for in a provider.Tom and Susan Kingma

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

To whom it may Concern
Liz Gill began caring for my daughter, Sandra., in August 2003. I had just
pulled Sandra. out of a very bad day care situation, and needless to say, I was very
apprehensive about trying to find someone new to take care of her. As soon as
I spoke with Liz on the phone, my fear immediately began to go away. We set
up an appointment to meet with her and as soon as we walked in the door, I
could tell that Liz was different from any other day care provider I had
spoken with. Sandra was immediately comfortable in her home and acted like she
had been there several times before. She started school there the following
week.
I never knew how much Sandra was missing out on until Liz started caring for her.
She became even more outgoing than she already was and was very proud to sing
to us all the songs that she learned from Liz .

Sandra never gives me a problem when I drop her off, and to be honest, it is me that has the problem because I hate leaving her. I would love to spend the whole day with Liz and the kids.
Liz has been nothing short of a Godsend for my daughter and my family. She
truly cares for not only my daughter, but for all the children that come to her.
Her love of children and family values shines through in all that she does. In
these times, a lot of providers are afraid of any contact with children, but Liz
always has a big hug and a caring hand for any sick or weepy child who needs it.
My family and I thank God every day for bringing us to. Liz . I don't
know what we would do without her.
Thank you, Liz, for everything that you do and are!
Sincerely
Laurie Garcia
