This is Marcos's mom, I just wanted to inform you how wonderful your staff at the YMCA before and after care in Lincoln Elementary has been. You really have amazing staff especially Ms. Flores she is absolutely wonderful and you can tell she knows what she is doing and how much she loves her job we appreciate her so much. As well as Mr. Kai my son likes him so much and is also talking about him and looks up to him. Ms. Jeiska as well as Mr. Colin are also so wonderful. I really appreciate what they do and how well they treat my son. Just wanted to let you know how well your staff are and I will continue to spread the word of this wonderful program. I hope you can keep them for a very long time. Keep up the good work!! Feel free to share this :)

“I just wanted to take a few minutes and tell you guys how much I appreciate you. I thought it was important for me to express my gratitude as my kids do to me everyday when I pick them up and they tell me how much fun they’ve had with you guys. You guys play a very important role not only my children’s lives but all the other kids in the program. My kids have requested that I pick them up later thanks to you guys  So I just wanted to say thank you for all you do and continue to do.” - Marieangeliz
