My daughter has been attending Mrs. Moore's daycare for half a year and I have been so pleased with her experience there. Mrs. Moore is extremely loving, caring, patient, and interested in all the children in her home. I love that she sends texts with pictures and reminders, making it so easy to communicate with her. My daughter talks about Mrs. Moore all the time as well as her little friends that are in daycare with her. I highly recommend... more

I spent a lot of time searching for a childcare provider and am so glad I found Mrs. Moore! My baby is thriving in her care, meeting his developmental milestones, and learning new things. I don't have to worry when he's with her because I know he's getting the proper care and attention. I highly recommend Mrs. Moore to any parent who is looking for high quality childcare.

Ms. Moore was an outstanding before and after care specialist for my son Maxwell. She nurtured and helped my son become prepared for the 2nd grade. My son had grown very fond of Ms Moore and was disappointed when her time at PG county school was up. Ms Moore will b a great asset to any child care facility that hires her.
Response from the provider:
Thank you very much. I will miss you both and grandma and auntie too. We will keep in touch.
