This place was a blessing, and pastor Shaw was and is a treasure to this community.

So, so sad...I noticed a private school is now on there former site.

So many children loved this place, which is usually not the way it goes with daycare.

one child I know was crushed that he had to leave once he turned thirteen.

A whole community of children thanks you, Rev Shaw!

That day care was amazing and I have so many wonderful memories. My family could never have afforded such a place anywhere else. I wish there was its like where I live now, so my own kids could benefit.

Thank you, Pastor Shaw, So Much. You'll never know what that place meant to us.
