- Jon and Cindy, parents of Harrison and Jack, wrote to send kudos to Miss Tara and Miss Idil at the Cheektowaga center, commenting that “Tara is just great; she has a special bond with each and every student and to be honest, I think every student has a place in her heart” and “Miss Idil has provided the environment and the tools for our littl boy to blossom; she is constantly doing new and exciting things!”.

In today’s edition of Team Tuesday, we’d like to extend heartfelt thanks to our entire teaching team, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week.
Kacey has been part of the doodle community since 2012 where she joined us as a Teacher Assistant; she quickly gained professional experience as she embraced the Doodle Bugs! mission and philosophy. She was promoted to a Lead Teacher in 2013 and is currently skillfully running aUPK/Pre-K classroom, which requires balancing the demands of the school district as well as the nuances of the Bravo curriculum.
Kacey is a very dedicated teacher who is clearly very passionate about Early Childhood Education; she embraces the fact that each child is unique and consistently tailors activities to each child’s individual learning styles. Her dedication to her profession is evident in her willingness to work hard to continually improve her own skills. Kacey also shares her expertise and enthusiasm with her colleagues, serving as a mentor to new teachers.
Thank you, Kacey, for your ongoing commitment to building a community of happy children, happy parents, and happy teachers. The doodle community is a better place because you CARE.
Kelcey is a valued member of the doodle team who consistently demonstrates her commitment to building a community of happy children, happy parents, and happy teachers.
Center Director Maria Thompson notes:
Not only is Kelcey opening our center each day, she has recently taken on her first mentoring relationship and is still consistently running a successful, fun toddler room. Kelcey’s rapport with our doodle families is very strong and often times parents will seek me out to tell me how much they appreciate her and all she does for her children. Kelcey is also a member of our center’s Sunshine Committee. Kelcey truly CAREs and deserves to be recognized for her hard work. We appreciate all she does!
Many thanks, Kelcey, for your positive attitude and ongoing contributions to the doodle team!
In today’s edition of Team Tuesday, we are pleased to feature Laura Walzer, McCandless Center Director. Since Laura joined the doodle team in August, faculty and families alike have appreciated her positive attitude and genuine commitment to building a community of happy children, happy parents, and happy teachers.
After hearing from several families who complimented Laura’s leadership, Emma Hartman and Leah Sharlow submitted an “official” nomination to the main office, noting:
“Laura has really turned this center around…we’ve come a really long way and it’s all because of her hard work and dedication.”
Many thanks, Laura, for leading by example in every thing that you “doodle do” — the McCandless community is truly a better place because you CARE.
In today’s edition of Team Tuesday, we are pleased to recognize Kelly Tweedie, one of our outstanding Doodle Dance & Fitness instructors.
Molly White, Clarence center director shares:
“When Kelly is in our building, she brings a positive vibe and energy that is contagious throughout the center. Her Doodle Dance classes are always filled with fun and interactive activities that leave the children and teachers smiling!
Kelly also plays a major role in keeping the center beautiful with creative displays and decorations for center events. She is always going above and beyond and is the first to ask “what can I do for you?” – it’s truly a pleasure to have her on our team.”
Many thanks, Kelly, for your enthusiasm and your willingness to share your talents. The doodle community is a better place because you CARE.
Whether she is greeting families at the front desk, or lending a helping hand in the classrooms, Kaitlyn always goes the extra mile to make everyone feel welcome and “at home” in our new Florida center. Coworkers greatly appreciate Kaitlyn’s genuine kindness and interest in helping others, noting that every interaction with her is positive and thoughtful: “she brings a warm smile to so many faces!”
Thank you, Kaitlyn, for consistently going above and beyond in your efforts to build a community of happy children, happy parents, and happy teachers. The doodle community is a better place because you CARE.
