Find out what sets Full Heart apart!
The idea of Full Heart Child Care all started back in the summer of 2016, when Ed and Mandy Gigliotti enrolled their daughter, Aliana in a local, family owned child care center next door to the building they had recently renovated to run their businesses. Mandy kept having this feeling in her heart that it needed to stay a daycare, so they spoke to the director who assured them nothing was going to change. A couple weeks later, families were notified that the center was closing....immediately. Ed and Mandy were blessed to have the opportunity to be able to buy the property and with a couple books on Amazon and help from a former real estate client (Amanda Hellebush), were able to fully renovate and open as Full Heart Child Care in the spring of 2017! The most important goal was to create a facility that is warm and welcoming to families, has highly qualified teachers, offers organic meals and healthy choices, and also prepares our children for kindergarten and beyond. One of Full Heart's core values is that it takes a village to raise a child and that is really what it's all about. The trust built between families and teachers is what makes it such a special place. The staff are honored to be a part of raising each and every child. Through electronic daily reports, a focus on health, wellness, social skills, and Christian values, and a genuine investment in the education of young children, the Full Heart Community has and continues to touch so many families in the Rochester area. The name Full Heart was chosen because every child's heart and soul should be as full as possible and not just full in terms of knowledge, but full in terms of feeling so much love from their caretakers.
