Wednesday Word: Hope

Gryphon House | Wednesday Word

If hope and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.

—Maria Montessori

Hope is found in the adoring look of an infant’s parents as they gaze upon their baby. Hope for health, happiness, peace, and love to last a lifetime. There is nothing more vulnerable a parent on the day she drops off her baby for the first time. Parents hope for the best, wonder if they are good enough, and hope they have chosen the right place for their child. How do you dispel their fears, quell their inner misery, and provide them confidence in their decision? You play such a crucial role in helping families to fulfill their hopes and dreams for themselves and their children.



In loving memory of Gryphon House author Leanne Grace, MEd, we are sharing pieces of her inspirational writing every Wednesday. Leanne was the director of professional development at Hildebrandt Learning Centers and a lifelong advocate for early childhood education.  She inspired the early childhood community to prepare children as lifelong learners with her ability to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. One person can make a difference, and Leanne did just that. She will be sorely missed.
