Children will also receive a daily report card with everything from performance to behavior to table manners. The report card will have everything that happens – the good, bad or indifferent, Tasch said.
Tasch said there is a semi-truck load of toys, furniture and kitchen items ready to be moved within the next two to three weeks.
Even with the delay, the new business has been well received, Tasch said.
“When I talk with people they are excited something like this is coming to their town – I’ve gained momentum from the attitude people are having,” Tasch said. “People are telling me this is going to be great for the city.”
Being excited doesn’t accurately describe Tasch’s feelings about Logansport Learning Academy finally opening. He described working from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. pounding a hammer and making changes, to get the project done.
Tasch hopes the daycare becomes a place of comfort for families.
“My hope is to be the eye of the hurricane that is everybody’s life,” Tasch said. “I want this to be the one spot that is calm and peaceful...the one spot you can bring your child and feel comfortable. “
Because of the hard work and time spent making the educational day care a reality, it has been a more enjoyable and rewarding experience, Tasch said.
“It has been a labor of love and people have really embraced having me around – I don’t feel like an outsider,” Tasch said.
