Need an evening to yourself while knowing your little one is having a fun and safe night of their own? See how Stephanie and her family fared on Oct. 7 at the Ankeny Y!
Tonight my two children participated in the Parent's Night Out. I was so incredibly pleased, I just had to come home and send the staff a ton of praise. First of all, I am not one to leave my children often. There are few places and people I trust to do so, but I am comfortable every time I leave them for an hour to work out, so I hoped the same with the event tonight.
As I dropped them off, I just felt so comfortable and confident in the staff that was about to watch them. I had my phone in sight all night, assuming we would need to come get them for various reasons, but we made it the whole time! I got to enjoy dinner and actual adult conversation! And I knew my kids were having fun and were well taken care of.
When we came to pick up, both kids were in good spirits and the teachers had great things to say about the night (even with a fussy baby).
From my husband and I, we just want to extend a huge thank you for the great care of our children tonight. You have no idea how nice it was to get out for a few hours and have complete trust in their care. Thank you!
Thanks so much for sharing, Stephanie! Try Parent's Night Out for yourself at the Ankeny YMCA (first Friday of every month) and our other branches (ask for schedule).
