Goodbye Letters

Sample Goodbye Letter to Daycare Provider

Dear _____,

I’d like to thank you for making your place a comfortable zone for children to learn and grow into adulthood. For the first time, I was a bit nervous leaving my child with you. At the same time, I wanted to return to my full-time job to make some extra bucks to support my family income.

However, as I was pondering with this, something gave me that confidence that I have found a second home where my child will be nurtured. The serene environment, the fresh air blowing everywhere, the pleasant odor, the spacious toddlers’ rooms, and the warm reception from your friendly staff all put my mind at ease that I have found the right place for my child to stay while I’m away.

Again, accept my sincere gratitude for every smile you put on my child’s face, for teaching [him/her] how to be contented, for being friendly and caring, and for all the happy moments shared with my [son/daughter] all year through. Goodbye and we hope to meet again soon.

      Excellent examples of what to write. I think thank you notes and cards are underused in today's society. That is a shame because a handwritten card means so much to someone.

      Your article will make it much easier for someone to spread some joy.
