What Parents Like about Kids Klub Pasadena:

Teddy Bear 2019
Ashley King

As a Kids Klub mom, I have had some experiences and formed a few impressions here that I’d like to
discuss with my fellow parents. Perhaps you can relate. Number one, can we talk about the space itself? Was it just me or were you also immediately mesmerized by THE LARGEST fish tank outside of the Aquarium of the Pacific? If you weren’t impressed by the library, Happy’s General Store, the covered outdoor play spaces, the teeny tiny toilets and sinks, or the kitchen, you were impressed by THAT TANK. And the eel. The eel is my buddy. Charlie and I spent many minutes at the end of each day playing hide and seek with that eel. I’m going to miss him.

Number two, let’s talk about the curriculum. You might THINK it’s utterly inane to have a curriculum in the baby classrooms, but the “staring at the toys” part of a six-months’-old day was wholly preparatory for the countless SECONDS of staring at the toy you wanted to play with as a two-year-old but couldn’t because it wasn’t your turn and you had to wait. Nevertheless, the staring at the toys turned into counting, the alphabet, and before you changed your 1,767,891st diaper, your little one was counting to a hundred, recognizing sight words (like, “No mommy, the sign in the toy store window says ‘OPEN’ not ‘CLOSED”‘!), and reciting the colors of the rainbow in Spanish or French (like, “Mommy, guess how you say red in French.” “I don’t know. Rose? Can I have a glass of that if I’m right?” “No, mommy. It’s ROUGE. And you can’t drink a glass of RED.” “Mmmf! Wanna bet?”)

Oh, and I was just kidding about that millionth diaper comment. We all know our little ones have to be potty-trained BEFORE they can transition to the threes and have used that many diapers. THAT was a scary time. “Is my kid going to be the only one who never learns to use the potty?” But sure enough, they do and I want to give a special AMEN to the teachers for all of their help in the potty and sanitation department.

Number three, and all joking aside, the teachers, staff, and administrators at Kids Klub have surpassed my every expectation. They have cradled our babies, kissed their scrapes, comforted them at drop-off, mediated disputes, encouraged them when they were timid, taught them educational and social skills that perhaps wouldn’t have resonated as well coming from us, and in the process, have become family. The love and joy both the kids and all the members of the Kids Klub family share with each other is evident every single day. This authentic love provided me with incredible peace knowing that even though I couldn’t be with my son all day that he was with a family who cared for him dearly. {It also lessened the blow of that January statement showing just how much we’d paid in tuition last year.)
Kids Klub is a remarkable institution and I will be forever grateful to every person here that played a part in making my son’s journey from baby to kindergartner an incredibly joyful one. I know I speak for my son when I say that he LOVES Kids Klub and without question, so do we.

Finally, a quick note to the Teddy Bear class. Your mommies, daddies, friends, and family are so very proud of all of you standing here today. You have grown into impressive girls and boys and you have amazed us by how much you have learned these last few years. I’d like to share a quote from Mr.
Rogers, who some of you may know if your parents are old like me. Mr. Rogers shared this sentiment with another group of graduating young people and while it may not make sense now, perhaps your parents will reinforce it as you get older. Here it goes: “You don’t ever have to do anything sensational for people to love you. When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see, or hear, or touch. So, in all that you do in all of your life, I wish you the strength and the grace to make those choices which will allow you and your neighbor to become the best of whoever you are. Congratulations to you all.”

Thank you.

Kids Klub Farewell – Dolphin 2019
Ashley Waterson

We are gathered here together,
to bid our dear Kids Klub goodbye,
All of us pondering the same truism:
How quickly that time passes by.

Some of you have been here from infancy;
Handing your newborns over in tears (you, not them),
But when you saw the care your baby received,
it quickly dissolved all of your fears.

Others of us came subsequently,
When our toddlers were a bit bigger,
Chipmunks, Koalas, or Butterflies perhaps?
But what exactly, pray tell, is a “Tigger”?

For most of us the waiting list was long,
But it’d be worth it; we had a hunch.
The teachers and programs are top of the line,
But more importantly: they provide lunch!!

This place is more than a daycare or school,
it’s a home away from home.
Our children have made enduring friendships here,
and they never feel alone.

They’re challenged and engaged, Each and every single day.
Our son can’t wait to get started each morning
and send his parents on their way.

Happy’s School, the General Store,
Classes impossible to rank,
And seriously, who among us was not sold,
After seeing that GIANT fish tank?? (I think some of those fish are prehistoric…)

They’re learning critical thinking,
And skills they need to successfully live.
Reading, writing, cooking, creating –
and whatever a “manipulative” is…

“Wild Adventures”, Thanksgiving Feasts,
Dance parties and Snow Days.
The Christmas pageant, the Easter Egg hunt,
The Halloween parades.

Is it any wonder our kids love it here?
I mean, come on, how cool?!
Let’s be honest, it’s gonna be a rude awakening
When they go to their NEXT school.
(“Mommy, when is Pajama Movie Day at High Point?”
“It’s Wednesday, May Never, honey.”)

All along they’ve had the best teachers,
Who’ve led with gentle, guiding hands.
They’ve laughed with them and dried their tears­
There’s a LOT this job demands.

Put it this way: just dealing with one kid,
My sanity takes its licks.
But Ms. Juliana and Ms. Jessica?
They’re dealing with twenty-six. (twenty…six…)

To our fearless leaders:
Wow, what a dynamic team!
Your love and boundless patience,
You’re every parent’s dream.

Oh! And J-squared, heads up.
This summer? Here’s the deal:
Evan made me PROMISE,
I’d invite you over for a meal. (So, what are you doing on Tuesday, July 23rd?…)

Kids Klub, we salute you,
And thank you with our hearts
For giving our kids courage
And confidence and smarts.

We are so grateful for our experience here,
the love and joy expressed each day,
That we’re willing to overlook the fact
that our kids will always spell “club” with a K.
