 Parent Comments:

“St. Joseph EDC is amazing.  Our daughter loves attending EDC and asks every week what days she gets to go.  As a parent, it is reassuring knowing GiGi is safe and with good caregivers as well as always learning.  Thank you Cinda and your team!”                                         Kindergarten parent

“Cinda & staff care for our children as if they were their own.  We both work full time so it is a comfort to know our children are in good hands when we cannot be with them.”        Shane & Jennifer Kathol

“Our son always looks forward to EDC.  They have a variety of fun and interesting activities.  EDC has given him an opportunity to meet children outside of his class/grade. Mrs. Hicks and her staff do a wonderful job.”       Kindergarten Parent                                       

 “This program is well run – variety of activities, kids get to meet students in other grades and classes, and it is family friendly with its flexibility.  The teachers are kind and caring.  Cinda runs an excellent program." Carrie Budd
