As one preschool volunteer said: "This ... helped me find a passion I hope to pursue for the rest of my life. You helped me realize just how important early childhood education is ... I learned so much about teaching, hospitality and how to treat people ... Each day, I learned just how smart, strong and kind a preschooler can be. They amazed me every day with their resourcefulness and silliness and I quickly learned how each child has their own set of hidden powers just waiting to be realized ... Each hug, request to hold my hand and laugh created memories I will hold dearly forever." — Sara Robinson, Notre Dame class of 2023, two term AmeriCorps member in the Robinson Center Preschool
