I am writing to express my personal recommendation of Ms. Ginny. I have known Ms. Ginny for several years, she watched both my boys since she owned her daycare up to her opening Developing Minds. Her years of expertise in dealing with children and her creativity in stimulating their minds are both rare and unique. She accomplishes both tasks effortlessly. She has become an integral part of our family. Angelica
I had the opportunity to use Ms. Ginny's services for one school year, during that time I never had a negative encounter and my daughter was quite happy and loved going to Ms. Ginny's program. The children are greatly enriched by her pleasant accepting nature of them as unique individuals. She is able to smoothly guide children onto the right path. Parents are pleased by her positive attitude and her willingness to try different things in order to promote the children's mental abilities. Donna
I recommend Ms. Ginny's program. She is an excellent with all the children. Ms. Ginny is very caring, diligent and hard-working. She is loved and respected by the children and the parents She has an excellent relationship with the Ridley Schools. The administration and staff recognize her program and give word of mouth recommendations, which have enabled her to become successful in her endeavors. Eileen
I have never once had a complaint or an issue with the program that Ms. Ginny provides and the manner in which she provides it. Ms. Ginny takes any danger away from my children by having them attend her program. Nicole
I am writing on behalf of Developing Minds, my daughter loves going to this program. she use to struggle at school, now school work is easier, due to all the extra help at Developing Minds. She listens to their lessons which are made fun and interesting. My daughters teacher and me both have seen the improvement in her school work. Developing Minds is a positive business for our community! Renee
I AM WRITING THIS AS A TESTAMENT TO THE CHARACTER OF DEVELOPING MINDS, ITS OWNER AND STAFF. I USED DAYCARE PROGRAMS AND FAMILY HOMES PRIOR TO FINDING MS. GINNY AND I SAY FINDING SOMEWHERE YOU CAN TRUST YOUR CHILDREN TO ATTEND IS NO EASY TASK! NUMEROUS CHILDCARE PROVIDERS OVER THE YEARS HAVE CAUSED ME TO FEAR FOR THE SAFETY AND WELLBEING OF MY CHILDREN! AFTER A LONG BATTLE, I FOUND MS. GINNY'S PROGRAM, I INTERVIEWED AND ASSESSED HER PROGRAM WITH UNDERSTANDABLE SKEPTICISM. I BEGAN TO HAVE HOPE AGAIN. FINALLY, I FOUND A TRULY NURTURING ENVIRONMENT. I NOTICED COMPLICATIONS OF BOTH MY SONS' "ADD" BEGIN TO DIMINISH. THEIR GRADES IMPROVED, THEIR TOUGH GUY EXTERIORS, SOON GAVE AWAY TO FUNNY AND HAPPY LITTLE BOYS. MS. GINNY'S PROGRAM IS NO DOUBT IS AN IMMEASURABLE POSITIVE AND ENDURING IMPACT ON THIS COMMUNITY. CANDYE
My name is Aaron, I attended Ms. Ginny's program and I just wanted to say how important Ms. Ginny is to me. I first started going to her family day-care when I was about three years old. She was like a second mother to me. She gave me a home away from home. I always felt really safe with her. I still stay in touch with her even though I am older now. I love Ms. Ginny very much and I am so glad she started Developing Minds, she can now help a lot more families in this community. Aaron
Let me tell you about Ms. Ginny, she treats you like shes your second mom. She helps families in need more than any other business owner that runs a program for kids. I come from a single parent home and one year my mom couldn't afford christmas presents for my brother and me. He still believed in Santa and Ms. Ginny took my mom Christmas shopping and paid for everything, we had a great Christmas that year because of her kindness. What kind of person does that! Another occasion, my mom told Ms. Ginny that we had bad report cards, Ms Ginny told my brother and me that if we worked with her and tried to improve and had better grades on our next report card she would buy us each a bike. We never had bikes and wanted them badly. She kept her promise and took us bike shopping, we got to buy any bike we wanted because we both improved in school and thats just a few memories I have. I had some of the best times in my life. Ms. Ginny has kid reunion parties and all sorts of stuff. I remember almost every kid who attended her programs would attend her reunions. I am a graduate of Ridley High and Ms. Ginny's program helped me during my school years. Thank you Ms. Ginny for being there for all of us. Adam
I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT MY TWO CHILDREN LOVED ATTENDING THIS PROGRAM. NOT ONLY IS IT OPERATED IN AN ORDERLY BUSINESS-LIKE FASHION, IT PROVIDES TOP-NOTCH QUALITY SERVICES. THE CHILDREN ARE PROVIDED A LOVING AND CARING ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THEY INTERACT AND PARTICIPATE IN AGE APPROPRIATE ACTIVITIES, ATTEND FUN AND EDUCATIONAL TRIPS, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE HOMEWORK HELP AND HOST PARTIES. THIS PROGRAM HAS EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS BY PUTTING THE CHILDREN'S NEEDS FIRST AND FOREMOST. WITH TODAY'S ENVIRONMENT IT IS AN HONOR FOR MY CHILDREN TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND THIS PROGRAM DENISE
I WORK IN THE EARLY CHILDCARE FIELD AND KNOW ABOUT PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO FAMILIES LIVING IN RIDLEY TOWNSHIP AND I KNOW MS. GINNY'S PROGRAM IS ONE OF BEST AROUND! REASONABLE PRICES AND AVAILABLE ALL YEAR ROUND. HAVING PEACE OF MIND ABOUT WHERE YOUR CHILD IS - IS PRICELESS! THIS PROGRAM IS AN ASSET TO OUR COMMUNITY. THIS PROGRAM IS INVALUABLE TO MY FAMILY AND TO ALL THE FAMILIES IN ATTENDANCE! THEY STAFF IS WONDERFUL, DEDICATED, GIVING, NURTURING, COMPASSIONATE AND RELIABLE. BEA
In my opinion, my Aunt who runs the company is a very effective communicator. I mostly see her communicate with the children who attend our summer camp/after school program but she always seems to know exactly how to handle each child no matter how different that child is from the group. She also seems to know exactly how to reach each child and what will work for figuring and solving disagreements. Her communication style is to listen carefully and ask questions to help a child recall the sequence of events. She has a way of focusing each child to the task at hand. She is also calm, sensitive and understanding of each child. Many of these children she has been around for many years and has learned how they work. She takes a personal interest in the wellbeing of each child as the program is her ‘baby’. She created the company and she devotes many hours to it every week, often sacrificing time and money on improving her building to make the children’s stay more enjoyable. It is easy to see that if she would think more businesslike and less personal she could easily live most comfortable on what she makes. However most of what she earns goes right back into the company to make improvements and buy treats for the children. The fact that the wellbeing of each child is personal for her I think is the characteristic that makes her most effective at communicating with each child.
I got a few responses from my class on this post that I thought my Aunt might like to hear.
One person said -- That is a special person. Children now a days are so wired or a couch potato they don't realize there are individuals that care about what they are thinking. And to communicate to a child on their territory and at their level is so hard to do. God Bless this women. We as adults are so quick to jump to conclusion, have no time, or other circumstances that affect they way we communicate with our children. We lose our selves in this business world we live in. Try to survive one moment to the next. To actually STOP and LISTEN can change the way you see a child's world in their eyes.
Another said -- I was privileged enough to be able to volunteer at my sons school this year and I truly believe that teachers and anyone who works with children full time have to be great communicators. And as you pointed out, listening is a great part of this. If you don't understand what their needs are, you won't get through to them. And you have to be able to step back and take each child as an individual, even when the patience is running low! So kudos, to you and your aunt because it takes a special person to teach and be a positive influence in a childs life.
-- Just thought I would share. Love you Auntie Ginny!!
