To our son's daycare teachers - an open letter of thanks

It is an emotional day.

Our son turns three today and leaves his daycare where he has been since 12 weeks old.

How do I say thank you to the incredible loving teachers who have looked after our baby for the last three years?

With tears in my eyes and a heavy, yet warm heart I write an open letter of thanks.
