People often ask why we started Growing Kids – That’s easy, we had kids! Once we became parents, our outlook on just about everything changed (as we assume it does for all parents). When we first became parents, we spent a lot of time with other new parents. As we were talking, the topic of child care would come up (a lot!). We were surprised to hear how many parents were not very enthusiastic about their provider. We heard things like, “I guess it’s OK” or “my sister’s kids went there so I suppose it’s good.” When we started looking around, we found that the availability of high quality care was pretty limited. Some places were downright scary! We knew we could do better than that – the parents and kids deserve something better. So the idea for Growing Kids was born.
