"Easton has developed into such a mature and well-adjusted 2.5 year-old. He is social and confident. His development has been so positively guided by the love, kindness, programming and experiences he has received at S&S. He loves his friends and the friendships he has [developed] you have so appropriately guided...Thank you for all the positive energy and creativity you put into every day. Easton loves it and I don't know what [we] would have done without the positive feel we got when we dropped Easton off every day. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
- Katie & Kevin, parents of Easton (Safe and Sounder from October, 2011-September, 2013)
"We are absolutely grateful for the experience our son Ethan had in the two years he was at Safe and Sound. We couldn't have found better people to love and care for our child. Karyn is incredibly dedicated and committed to offering the best care possible and it is obvious how much she loves and respects children. As first time parents we felt completely reassured by the quality and consistency of care Ethan received each and every day.
The programs, outings and events were thoughtfully and appropriately planned out for the children and Ethan has grown and benefitted greatly from all these experiences. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Safe and Sound to anyone. "
- Cathy & Mike, parents of Ethan (Safe and Sounder from November 2010-September 2012, when he graduated to big-boy school!)
"We absolutely loved ALL aspects of our experience at Safe and Sound and have never met anyone with more energy and creativity in her ability to turn every day activities into an enriching learning experience than Karyn. The trips into the community and the real life experiences Elle has received while at S&S are invaluable and we have watched her flourish in her almost 2 years there. It is such an exceptional feeling when you can leave you child with someone and feel 100% confident that their best interests are always being met and we've come to consider Karyn and Co. as part of our own family.
We will miss everyone at S&S (including the other wonderful families) and wish them nothing but the absolute best. We would recommend S&S to anyone who wanted a unique, loving, and enriching experience for their child."
- Hollie and Brett, parents of Elle (Belle) (Safe and Sounder from December, 2010-October, 2012)
"Safe and Sound was an amazing place for our son Jay to grow and learn. The daily activities and retreats provided Jay with great exposure to all ages and the neighbourhood. We will miss the positive, happy, fun family at Safe and Sound."
- Emme & Jeff, parents of Jay (Safe and Sounder from May 2011 - August 2012)
"From the meal planning to the educational activities to the excursions, the child care and programming that Safe and Sound provides is truly exceptional. Karyn is extraordinarily engaging and caring, and has endless energy for kid-centred education and play. She works hard every day to ensure that the kids have lots of creative fun while always learning something at the same time. Our son’'s year at Safe and Sound could not have been better. Safe and Sound is one the many things we will miss after our move to Vancouver!”
- Graeme & Jenn, parents of Wyatt (Safe and Sounder from September 2010 - September 2011, when we moved to Vancouver)
"You guys have been so amazingly patient, loving, caring, stimulating, excursion-ing, educate-ing, hug-ful, nurturing...the absolute best year Marc could have had developing his personality/sense of humour/speech...all sorts of things! Thank you so much. I know Marc is going to miss you both as well as his friends, chair, bib, outings, and treats at S&S."
- Kirsten, mom of Marc (Safe and Sounder from Sept 2010 - July 2011, when he graduated to big boy school!)
