Happy High Fives: Teacher Appreciation at Doodle Bugs!

Last month, we introduced a new way for Happy Parents to recognize our Happy Teachers and it has been a heartwarming success. In just 4 weeks, nearly 200 High Fives have been shared through our website!

In the spirit of all things teacher appreciation and because we can’t keep them all to ourselves (!!), we’d like to share a few:


“Miss Mary has made the transition to daycare seamless for our son! She takes the time to talk to us at drop off and pick up about his day. She sends a lot of pictures throughout the day so we can see how our baby is. She takes excellent care of him. Thank you!”

Susan, McCandless



“Miss Leah is a devoted teacher who thoroughly knows and personally cares for each of her students. You can see in her interactions with the kids the, “little things” that really show it’s more than just, “a job.” It’s refreshing to see hers and the great attitude of the rest of her colleagues and I’m really happy to support this organization and her class specifically! Thank you, Miss Leah!

Kevin, Henrietta


 “Since Day 1, Miss Concetta has been a loving and attentive caregiver for Harper. She has easily adapted to the changes in Harper’s routine, keeps her happy and gives extra snuggles and love on the days when she’s feeling cranky, and provides Harper with lots of opportunities for art, sensory play, and learning. Miss Concetta gives me a detailed report about Harper’s day when I pick her up everyday. I appreciate Miss Concetta so much!”

Lauren, Cheektowaga


“Miss Stephanie is a very special teacher in my son’s eyes. When he leaves school, he always has something wonderful to say about how Miss Stephanie helped him or played with him during the day. At pick up, when Miss Stephanie is there, she always has a personal message to share about something Jack did that day or said to her that made her laugh. I appreciate these stories so much because it shows she knows my son and enjoys her job. Miss Stephanie is kind, enthusiastic, and passionate about working with kids. It is clear to see that Miss Morgan and Miss Stephanie work together as a team and as a parent, that is so nice to see. She has been a consistent face in the classroom and knows the children well. I am so grateful that Jack has Miss Stephanie to help him develop into the young boy he is becoming. I know her kindness and compassion are part of what Jack loves about her. I am so grateful Miss Stephanie has been working in Jack’s room consistently because he has gotten to know her and develop a special connection. Thank you Miss Stephanie for all your kindness you show my son and all children each day!!”     

Katie, Clarence


“Ms. Katie is so wonderful with the kids! I know my daughter adores her and looks forward to seeing her each day. We’re so thankful that she feels loved, has fun and is learning while we’re at work all day“

Nichole, Lakewood Ranch
