Due to an unplanned move (and unwanted), I have to give my 2 week notice for CHASE HILDEBRAND today. Thank you for everything you have done for Chase. I have seen him blossom in the few months he has been with PBELC. I am saddened by this move and having to take Chase out of your school but know he will do well wherever he goes with the start you have given him. Thank you for everything!
David has grown and thrived in this program. We are forever grateful for his first school experience to have been so happy and loving due to all the attention and continual guidance. David has grown to be a respectful, intelligent young man. He loves school and learning and it is all thanks to this program and all the teachers.
We appreciate what you have done for David and our family. It’s amazing how much he has grown in his time at this school!
Thanks so much for taking such good care of Sam. It brings us much peace of mind that he spends his day in the care of someone so warm and loving. We look forward to watching him grow and flourish in your care.
Thank you so much for the love and care you’ve shown to Jack & Charlie. You are incredibly talented, kind, patient, and lots of fun, too! Every minute the boys were at “Linda’s School,” we knew we could rest assured that they were happy and well cared for. You work so hard that we thought you could enjoy a visit to Isabel’s Cantina. It’s our favorite PB place for dinner (breakfast & lunch are yummy too!). Enjoy! We will all miss you!
Thank you so much for being so welcoming to Michael and for your warmth and patience with him. He loves going to PBELC! Thank you for everything you do. You provide a wonderful place for Michael to learn and grow.
Thank you so much for welcoming Miss Kennedy into your PBELC with such open arms. It’s made our lives so much easier knowing she is safe as well as loving her time there while we are at work! We wish you a very merry Christmas and a safe & Happy New Year!!
We started our daughter at PBELC just shy of her first birthday and had to leave just after she turned two. During this 15 months we were very happy with her development. Linda is a great communicator and if we had any questions or concerns she was always available to us. We loved getting our daughters report card each day to find out what activities she had done, what she had eaten and how long she had slept. We also loved that she had a piece of art work to bring home each day. We were also provided the curriculum for the year and got information each week to remind us what theme we should be working on at home each week.
Another skill our daughter expanded on during this time was her baby sign language. We started signing to her when she was born but after a few months at PBELC we were having to research the signs she was using as she was out signing us! Linda really cares about the children and has been a pleasure to work with over the past year. We hope we find another place as special for our daughters in the new city that we’re relocating to.
We enrolled our 2 boys in Linda’s daycare in January 2013. Our oldest son, Jack, was a little over 2 and our baby, Charlie, was 4 1/2 months at the time. This was our second daycare experience for our oldest and we were excited to find something so close to our home in Pacific Beach. Right away we noticed that Linda was organized, energetic, kind, positive, and patient By the middle of the first week, Jack was completely adjusted and clearly in love with Linda and all her fun activities. Charlie was his usual happy self as well.
Linda recognizes and appreciates each child’s unique personality. Jack has opportunities all day long to play, create, learn, and be a helper. Every minute our boys are at “Linda’s School” we can rest assured that they are having a blast, being safely cared for and learning all sorts of wonderful new things.
We have been thrilled with the care, dedication, creativity, and patience Linda shows both of our boys. She clearly has a wealth of experience with children and is able to use a positive, proactive approach that helps children learn, play, and stay safe. She is also a talented teacher. She implements creative and interesting daily lessons that Jack enjoys. She is fostering a love of learning and exploring. We couldn’t ask for a better childcare provider.
It is with great enjoyment that we write a letter of recommendation for Pacific Beach Early Learning Center. We have had our son there for the past 18 months and his daily growth and enjoyment have both been things we cherish. The director, Melissa Lorenz, is a compassionate, caring, and attentive caregiver, and guides an equally qualified and energetic staff.
We have been completely happy with our experiences and would highly recommend PBELC to any parent considering them for their child. The play-based program infused with educational development and bi-weekly themes for practical learning were exactly the traits we were looking for in a daycare. As a result, our son has developed an emotional intelligence and social understanding far more than we would have normally expected. Of equal importance, the focus on health and proper nutrition is something we greatly appreciated after seeing what other care centers provided.
We were so glad to have found this daycare!
Thank you so much for a lovely time last week! It was so perfect and we truly appreciate all the effort you put into preparing such a fabulous affair. We loved the slideshow and it was great to finally meet many of the parents. Those little touches (decorations, pictures, goodie bags) – Wow! And not to mention the food! Can I trade places with Aileana for a day? LOL! And thank you for taking care of the most precious human beings on earth. You and your team are amazing caretakers and truly advocates for those who can’t quite express themselves yet.
You have made a huge difference in both Michaela’s life and mine. I wanted you to know how much you have contributed to Michaela’s happiness.
Thank you for joining us to celebrate Dakota’s 1st Birthday. Thank you also for the thoughtful 1st year photo collage! As you already know – Dakota loves the soft soccer ball! I also see a train table in our future to hold the train set you got Dakota! Thanks most of all for all the love and care you provide Dakota everyday! We feel we won the day care lottery with the best possible daycare we could have ever imagined! Thank you Linda for all that you do!
We want to thank you for helping us so much with Sofie, she has had an amazing time. She has truly enjoyed the music, dance, art, but more than anything the excellent team you have. She has felt loved & has made great friends. We will miss you all.
We began daycare at PBELC when our son was 8months old and kept him with Linda until Tracy decided not to work six months later. We quickly felt like the staff treated Cooper like one of their own and did everything they could and more to make us comfortable as parents.
We made requests for Linda to go out of her way to apply for different military programs that helped pay for Cooper’s care and she was always more than willing to help. Cooper was always excited to go each morning and always wanted to stay when we picked him up. He truly seemed to enjoy his time and it was great to find out all the activities he did at the end of the day.
We never had any concerns for his care and always felt like he was safe and secure. The infant staff was absolutely amazing. I can’t say enough positive things about the people and the overall experience.
Linda Brown of the Pacific Beach Early Learning Center is a caring, compassionate educator, who is genuinely dedicated to the safety and happiness of the children in her care.
Children are instinctively drawn to her caring nature and she has a natural ability to recognize and empathize with children requiring special needs.
My granddaughter was a withdrawn, scared, and traumatized child who blossomed into a completely normal, affectionate, intelligent, sociable child within months of attending Linda’s day care. She loved coming to the day care every day, in spite of the major separation anxiety she initially suffered from. This is a testament to Linda’s bond with all of her children, and the trust she engenders in her young clients.
Linda has put a great deal of time and effort into designing a comprehensive educational plan for everyone who attends the day care. She prepares healthy, organic, homemade food every day, and turned my granddaughter from a picky, stubborn eater, to a child that will practically try anything now. (at least once!)
She staffs her day care with caring, qualified individuals, who share Linda’s passion for happy contented children, in their home away from home.
I would highly recommend Linda and Pacific Beach Early Learning Center as the next best thing to home care for your child. Your children will be happy and enriched, and will make friends they really care about, and they will never be unhappy showing up at Linda’s doorstep every morning. They will happily look forward to it.
