Nestled in two quaint old-time schoolhouses near downtown Gilbert, one red and one blue, sits a loving and amazing gem. The Wilkins Learning Center has been Jackson’s preschool for the past three years, and we feel so thankful to have found them. As parents, what we want for our children as they begin to be apart from us for school is to feel loved, respected and nurtured. Jackson received all three and more from the Wilkins family.
The Wilkins Learning Center was founded by a mother and her two daughters, all former elementary school teachers with years of experience in the field. They greet each child with a hug every.single.day, and phrases like “Honor my words” , “Wake up the courage inside you” and “Climbing the mountain of knowledge”, along with references to students as a “classroom family” are common and hallmarks of this wonderful school. Calm, sweet words are always heard, all the while guiding the children to become all that they can be–productive, kind and lovers of learning.
What an adorable Classroom Family Jackson had the opportunity to be a part of this year. I am so thankful to have had the chance to capture some of the love they have for one another and for their teacher, Mrs. Wilkins-Wostl. Can’t you just see the adoration in their hearts? We look forward to spending some summer days with his friends as I know they will all miss each other dearly!
The Wilkins Learning Center will be moving just down the street and will be adding daycare and many other programs–including Summer Camp! Jackson can’t wait to go!
Thank you, WLC, for loving our children SO VERY MUCH!
