Just a quick note to say we’ve had such a good experience with [son] in the nursery this fall… everyone has been so welcoming and friendly. He’s happy to be dropped off, and seems to enjoy himself. ... Mount Olivet is such a special place to us, it’s so neat to have it be a place [son] talks about – and enjoys being as well.
