INTOUCH CREDIT UNION WORKS FOR THE CUSTOMER I nTouch Credit Union is celebrating its 40-year anniversary serving customers (called members) in the community, and was voted Best Credit Union by readers. The not-for-profit financial cooperative is headquartered in Texas, but also has branches in Michigan, Nevada and Virginia. Every day, 14 staff members at two separate Frisco locations, offer members personalized, concierge service living up to their company tagline of, “working for you and your financial wellbeing.”

The two Frisco branches are located at 9151 Warren Parkway and 5858 Main Street, Suite 101. ITCU says it is honored to have been named Best Credit Union more than once since opening its doors in Frisco and is always excited to know readers appreciate their way of business.

Winner! BEST CREDIT UNION

Diane Gerstner, Executive Vice President said, “The best part about being recognized for the Reader’s Choice Award is that readers really appreciate the efforts of ITCU to create 'a caring trusted financial community through an exceptional personalized service experience.’”

InTouch focuses on individual members’ needs based on the company’s core values of accountability, teamwork, trust, integrity and excellence. These elements allow them to place member’s financial needs above profit, while still maintaining fiscal responsibility.

The company’s dedication to members can be seen in the many “love letters” it receives which are sometimes even accompanied by baked goods. These letters often describe the struggles and successes that staff members helped support members through; examples of which can be found on the Member Connect section of ITCU.org. ITCU can serve the banking needs of anyone who lives or works in Collin County with the same types of services found in larger regional or national financial providers. Staff is always ready and equally passionate about helping people with all types of needs whether to help finance one of their dreams or help find solutions to everyday financial issues. For more information visit ITCU.org.

Using a straightforward approach that puts

EXCEPTIONAL

LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

SUNNY DAYS CHRISTIAN PRESCHOOL PREPARES CHILDREN FOR THE ROAD AHEAD The castle-like building of Sunny Days Christian Preschool, at 8100 Stonebrook Parkway, was designed specifically to provide children a fun, safe and exceptional learning RLY environment. The school BEST EAOOD opened in fall 2000, and its CHILDH ION 16-person staff works to provide a well-rounded, faithEDUCAT based education to children from the ages of 2 through 10.

Winner!

The school uses a world-recognized, all-encompassing faithbased curriculum called ABeka,

which develops memory and attention span in early childhood development by utilizing stories, role-playing activities and practical applications of the lessons. Along with that, Sunny Days offers art, music, Spanish and computer training for its students. Sondra Maglisceau, program director for the school, said the best part about winning the Reader’s Choice Award in the Early Childhood Education category is “realizing this was a vote from our Frisco community, and we’re extremely proud.” This is its first time winning the award.

Sunny Days was started after Maglisceau’s husband retired from 40 years in the chemical industry, during which time she was involved with opening child care centers at each church they joined in the 12 cities they moved to. While ensuring proper child care and implementation of the curriculum, the staff is rewarded with the pure delight of working with young children. The facility includes a kitchen and cafeteria that provides nourishing lunches every day to the students, indoor and outdoor play areas, a reading loft, classrooms and a computer center for chil-

dren over the age of 3. Each day students participate in a before-school program and attend a chapel service. Summer camps are also available for school-age preschool children through the age of 10. Their success is measured in the recommendations from parents and in the happy, well-educated children the school produces. Reviews and testimonials can be found on sunnydayschristian.com under the reviews tab. For more information, call 972-3772274 or visit sunnydayschristian.com.
