 Dear all at Acorn Park Nursery

 It is with a heavy heart that we write this note of farewell.

 But it also with a sense of real and genuine gratitude.

 Matilda has been in your care since she was five months old and we have nothing but thanks and praise for the care, education, understanding and support you have provided.

 As first time (and very nervous) parents of an only child, we were incredibly apprehensive about with whom, we placed our trust.

 Not because we were untrusting of nurseries, but simply because we didn’t have a clue what we were doing!

 Within four weeks of Matilda joining your very special home, we felt like part of your family.

 Your commitment and dedication to the development of Matilda (and all of your children) is nothing short of inspiring.

 You (and all the ladies) have played a pivotal role in the development of our daughter and it is largely down to you that she is the confident, bright, engaging, fun, inquisitive and lovely little girl that she is today.

 So for that, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

 As parents, you have also helped teach us how to care for, educate and support our daughter.

 You may think your role is just to look after the wee ones, but you do an incredible job with the parents too.

 Never once have we worried about her safety or her education, whilst in your care.

Which, in turn, has allowed us to develop into the parents we always wanted to be (confident, independent, non-worrysome and secure).

 So again, for that, we thank you.

 It’s hard to single anyone out, because you’re all incredible and we’re incredibly proud to say that we were Acorn Park parents.

 You are a shining and proud example of professional child care and a credit to your industry. We will continue to bang your drum to anyone who will listen.

Thank you for helping to make Matilda, Matilda.

 With all our love and respect,

 Keli, William and Matilda Mitchell
