Dear Everyone at Threshold,
I wanted to let you all know how much you have meant to our family over the last 9 years(imagine that...9years!). Leaving a child at day care can be the most traumatic thing a parent has to do- wondering if they will be well cared for, if someone will pick them up and comfort them when they cry, being anxious about what (if anything) they are learning. To have had all of you watching and caring for my children has been one of the greatest blessings of our time in Memphis.
I have watched you all- I drop in at odd times, I go on field trips-and I have always been amazed at what I see when your are with my children and the others at Threshold.I have never , in 9 years, heard anyone raise their voice to a child. I have never seen a child crying by themselves or disciplined in any unfair manner. I have always heard love and kindness in your voices and your actions toward all the children there. My children have learned more from you than I could possibly have taught them, even if I worked at it full-time. You not only teach them songs and their ABC's and how to read before they enter kindergarten (although you do that so well). You teach them to care about themselves and others, to respect their time and the things around them, to control themselves without using anything but praise and a soft voice. You teach them to have fun with the other children, to do a little more than they thought they could, and to value their work and accomplishments. You let them each be themselves, which is a major thing for teahers to do, and they respond by being the best they can be.
I know Anna and Matthew left you and started school well ahead of anyone else in their classes because of your love and teaching. One of my biggest regrets in leaving Memphis will be that Abby doesn't get to spend more time with you. You will all be greatly missed in our lives. Thank you all for teaching my children and for caring for them as if they were your own.
We love you all...Thank you! Toni Powell

I want to thank you so much for making Savannah's first years of school a wonderful experience. She made so many wonderful friends and has grown so much in the last year. You are truly a family and I know Savannah will carry these memories with her throughout her life. I have always told everyone about your school and will continue to say only positive things. We will truly miss each and every one of you.
