“White Birch Center’s Remote Learning Program is vital to the community and surrounding towns. During the summer, schools released their back to school plans. The hybrid model created a safe learning environment for students but also presented a challenge for working parents. I was overwhelmed by the stress of finding safe and reliable care for my children on their remote learning days. When I reached out to the White Birch Center, they were supportive and committed to helping my family. The remote learning program has exceeded my expectations. The staff has supported my children’s remote learning schedules and provided additional academic support as needed. The staff has gone above and beyond to provide fun outdoor experiences and engaging art activities to motivate my children. Living through a pandemic is stressful for parents and children. I am thankful for the White Birch Center and the positive and reliable care they provide.”
“When I pick my three-year-old up from preschool at White Birch, she is always smiling. Everyday she reports, “I had an awesome day!” Her older sister, who attends the Extended Education Program, loves to show off art projects and tell us about the fun time she had playing with her friends each afternoon. After months at home during the pandemic, it is wonderful to see the joy my girls have spending time with their peers and teachers. I am amazed by how much they have learned and grown over the past few months. I am grateful to the teachers and staff at White Birch for creating such a loving, safe and supportive place for early education and childcare.”
“We love the out-of-the-box classroom activities and field trips our children get to participate in – things that get them outside and experiencing life while we work to support our family.”
“I appreciate you and everyone in your program. You are true lifesavers and the unsung heroes of this pandemic.”
“WBC lets my child PLAY! My child is part of the After School Program and gets to play while she learns how to interact with her peers; make decisions with her peers; have discussions with her peers; and has fun with her peers. Energy is exerted. I have an exhausted child when we pick her up – good exhausted. Also, the WBC teachers help her with her homework! This is a complete win!”
“This place has been great for Gwen. She is able to complete her school work and there are other teachers there if she needs help. She also has the opportunity to engage in other activities as well that utilize her creative side. They are always willing to work with my schedule and keep me well informed of what is going on there. The ability to have open dialogue is huge. I am so glad we found you guys and were able to have her in your program! I strongly recommend it for any parent who has school aged kids, especially during all of this craziness.”
“My daughter has attended WBCC since the age of 12 months and is fortunate to have grown up with the support of such a wonderful environment and excellent staff. She now attends the After School Program a couple of days a week as a second grader. We are so thankful to have such a convenient, comfortable, safe, enriching, and fun place for her to go. The days she is a “White Bircher” are her favorite days of the week.”
“The hardest thing about having our daughters in the afterschool program is that when I get a chance to pick them up early, they don’t want to leave their friends or activities yet and ask to stay longer!”
“The school age program at White Birch gives my son a fun, safe learning environment after school, on school vacation days and during the summer which enables me to maintain a demanding work schedule. He has always enjoyed the activities and field trips that he participates in and has made many lasting friendships while involved in the school age program. The teachers are fun, caring, positive role models for all the children in their programs!”
“I love that we get to see on Facebook what our children are up to during the day- because it’s really hard to have to leave your small children to work full time. I’d be home with them if I could, my husband would be home with them if he could, this is the next best thing to that. Our children are loved, are treated really well, and we are kept in the loop 100% of the time.”
“Amazing job to the staff! You all have been a massive help in this uncertain time. Thank you all so much!”
“THANK YOU Allison, Emma and Ryder. You are an amazing team and have done a fantastic job this week with the Remote Learning Program. It was a huge undertaking and you guys have rocked it. I know it wasn’t easy, but I can assure you that the families and staff at HCS are so very grateful for all of your hard work to make this such a success!”
“We’ve been utilizing the White Birch after school and summer programs for a few years. One of their best assets is their summer program. They offer fun and original field trips, a ropes course every week and swimming! We really enjoy the program and its flexibility.”
“We absolutely love White Birch. Our kids have been in the program since 2013. We’ve used both the early learning and the afterschool/summer program. Whenever I drop my kids off at White Birch I know they’re going to have a good day. I trust the teachers to build educational fun into the games they play. They get lots of time to run around outside, and I love that they walk through the NEC campus.
I was worried about my son’s readiness for kindergarten next year since he’s not interested in academics. White Birch did a really nice job of waiting for him to be ready and offering him lots of opportunities to practice. He all of sudden came home recently and was counting to 20. He knows his letters and numbers and will definitely be ready for Kindergarten, even though he isn’t the type of kid who likes to sit down for traditional academic learning.
Thank you for taking care of my kids. It means a lot to me that I can drop my kids off with adults who care about them and make sure they grow socially, emotionally and academically.”
“The White Birch School Age Program allows my family to be a dual income family. I have confidence that my daughter is taken care after school with qualified and loving teachers – not babysitters … TEACHERS. Individuals who have earned their credentials. Her homework gets done while with the School Age Program which equates to a very peaceful time at home in the evening hours. Now who doesn’t want that! The whole White Birch family holds a special place in my heart. They help me be a better mom.”
“White Birch makes the February & April vacation weeks fun for our children while we work. The kids get to do cool things and we hear all about it.”
