Gregory Family Child Care Students go from Diapers to Diplomas

This post was published back in 2012 but it’s still worth keeping as a very fond memory of four very special children and 3 amazing teachers.

Here’s the Post as Originally Published in 2012

Here we are again at that time of the year when our older children are leaving our Valencia, CA child care preschool and going off to kindergarten. It’s always so exciting, and it’s fun to see the children and their parents as they prepare for the special first day of Kindergarten. Of course we will miss them all, but some will be returning for after school care, and others are sure to drop in for an occasional visit.

In celebration of the children moving on to kindergarten, Teacher’s Mary, Beckie, Makenna, Cynthia, the children and parents all met up for a grad night at Vincenzo’s Pizza in Santa Clarita Valley.


Beckie made graduation cap dessert treats that were so cute and yummy to eat too. Cynthia gave each child a bucket of treats. Mary gave out new lunchboxes for each child and owl kites to symbolize they are flying away from the nest, so to speak.

Mary’s schoolhouse treated the parents to this happy celebration which everyone enjoyed. Chase’s older sister Kate was there to celebrate with us as she graduated four years earlier herself. What was really incredible was that Makenna who is a teacher assistant in our child care now, was a baby 18 years ago in our home daycare. She is currently leaving to college to pursue an education to become a child care provider as she loved growing up in our daycare and wants to give kids the same love and learning that she experienced years before.
