“I participated in the first East Coast LifeWays training nearly ten years ago. Through the training, I acquired practical knowledge of the LifeWays model, an inner resolve to do what I could, and a nationwide network of supportive colleagues. In September, 2009, we opened the Rose Garden Early Childhood Center in Buffalo, NY. Today, I am engaged in meaningful work, surrounded by healthy children. It’s time to spread the word that there is a model for homelike, healthy early childhood programs that serve both at home and working parents. That’s why we are hosting the first Buffalo LifeWays training for parents, caregivers and teachers of young children.” –Judith Frizlen
