"Sarah and Kathy create a sacred space for early childhood educators. They are true experts in the field and their passion shines through in every workshop and round table meeting."

Anita Denes-Meador
Chief Program Office, JCC Chicago

“The work that my team and I are doing with GatherRound has been both incredibly thoughtful and impactful at the same time. Kathy and Sarah have helped us elevate our thought process, standards, and culture from one of being a just a community early childhood provider to being a leading voice in the importance of ECE programming to our community as well as delivering an exceptional experience to our children and their families. We see ourselves and the work we do through a different lens now and that is helping us focus on our impact and influence.”
