We enrolled our 13-month old daughter at the very start of 2019 and we couldn't be happier. She is excited to go to daycare every day to play with all of her friends. These providers are very warm and welcoming and give us the peace of mind knowing that our daughter is in a friendly, clean and safe environment. We would recommend them to anyone!

This provider is simply amazing with kids. She has an excellent mixture of learning and play. There were lots of 'special projects' that incorporated arts and crafts while still emphasizing an overarching lesson plan. She's exceptionally patient and is always willing to take the time to listen to any questions or concerns I could possibly have. She's also always striving to improve and make sure the kids are always interacting with something fresh or new.

This provider has taken very good care of our young baby. She is very attentive to his needs, and he appears to like her. We feel very comfortable leaving him with her every day, and she's good about giving us updates and tips related to our concerns.

This provider keeps her home so clean and friendly. She is very understanding of my crazy schedule, which as a single mom is priceless. I really appreciate that there is no TV's in the home, allowing the kids to just be kids.

We had an amazing experience with this daycare. Our twins went here for 2 years and our expectations were exceeded. They provide a safe, clean and loving environment for children to learn and grow.

This provider has a wonderful loving and caring environment for our daughter.The provider was always cheerful to greet her every morning and gave us a great update about how her day went. She looked for ways to engage the children with sensory experiences and creative projects. She loved her time there!

My daughter, who is almost 3, has been cared for by this provider since she was 3 months old. As a first time mother this provider was very supportive to me and I never worried about leaving my newborn with her. Now that my daughter is older she loves the age appropriate play and learning that takes place. She looks forward to going to daycare.

Our daughter has been in this provider's care for over two years. She started as an infant at 10 months old and is currently three years old. This provider is great for babies and toddlers and our daughter loves it there, she can't wait to go see this provider and we have a hard time getting her home. She gets attentive care and her verbal and social skills blossomed. Our only complaint is that since its a home daycare, the curriculum and activities vary according to the current makeup of the kids attending the daycare. When there are more older kids, they do more preschool activities that my daughter loves.

My 2 year-old daughter started here at 11 months and my 6 month-old son has been here since he was 3 months old. We toured several in-home daycares beforehand and this home stood out as a top pick. She has separate spaces (actually, separate floors!) for sleeping, infants, and older kids. It's always very clean whenever I've been there and there are plenty of toys, books, and fun things for the kiddos. I love that she prepares breakfast and lunch for them - one less thing for me to do! The provider is almost always there at pick-up and drop-off which is wonderful since we can touch base about how the day went for the kids, any questions I have, etc. She also communicates by text message which is convenient for me. Her daughter, works with her and she's fantastic - very communicative and collaborative as well. The third provider seems to change fairly often but whoever has been there has always seemed fine to me. They seem to have a better ratio than most in-home daycares. They recently got a dog and I've been impressed at how they've managed the dog with the kids, offering all the positives of being around a pet while avoiding the negatives. I've been satisfied with our experience and I plan to keep my kids there until age 4 at which point I'll move them to a more structured preschool setting.

We followed recommendations about this childcare and they didn´t fail. This provider and her assistant are very dedicated to children and know how to do their job. The facilities are adapted for children´s needs (she even has tiny arm chairs that our 17-months daughter love). We feel safe leaving Camila twice a week at this daycare and we guess she has a great time there since every time we pick her up she is smiling!

This provider started caring for our child less than two months ago and we can't say enough about how pleased we are with her care. The daycare is spacious and clean with age appropriate toys and designated rooms/ areas for playing, eating or sleeping. My daughter seems very comfortable in her care and is flourishing. She has already learned to hold her bottle, which has been so helpful and appreciated. The provider communicates well with us about her daily activities and needs and has been very flexible and supportive as my daughter adjusts to being in daycare after 9 months of being cared for at home.

We absolutely loved leaving our 4 month old daughter with this provider. She was always happy, fed and clean when I picked her up. She gave her lots of attention and love. I could not have asked for more from a care provider. The only reason we are not using her anymore is that the commute was too far for us. I would highly recommend this provider to anyone looking for loving and safe care for their children.

This provider started to take care of my son when he was 6 months old. I was impressed when I first went visit her house because she made her main floor the child care area which is rarely seen in most of the home based child care. She organized the child care area with different learning stations and was constantly seeking feedback from parents. Her hours are very flexible which worked great for us. She is very caring and always seeks ways to improve her child care service, not only by keeping the child care area organized and clean, but also coming up with materials/activities to teach kids. We were lucky to have her take care of our son.

A friend of ours recommended this daycare daycare to us when we were looking for a daycare for our 7-month old daughter. The provider lovingly took care of our little one, who transitioned quickly and smoothly in the new setting. Her assistant also handled our little one very lovingly. I used to pick up my daughter at different times, and I noticed that she was always directly interacting with her, which was so wonderful for me to see as a parent. This provider kept a thorough log of our daughter's naps and feed times and was wonderful about helping us introduce solids when the time came. We have now relocated however have still kept in touch with her who is now a close friend for our family.

We're just starting with this daycare and impressed with the provider's caring, warm personality and attention to each child. It's a comfortable home with lots of activity areas, a quiet nap room, and we're so happy she provides healthy home-cooked meals that go beyond the usual childcare menu.

This provider helped me out in a bind when I really needed childcare for my 1 year old daughter. She took her in immediately. No wait list. She cooks healthy vegetarian meals for her kids and takes them out to the park. She sent me nice pictures directly to my phone, which was nice. Thank you!

I brought my daughter to this childcare based upon a friend's recommendation when we relocated to the area. Previously, she had been in a group childcare setting. I enjoyed the more personalized atmosphere of the home based setting. This provider sent pictures periodically of the children engaged in activities. There is nothing better than receiving a picture of your child smiling and playing while you are at work! The house was always very clean and well organized. It is situated in a beautiful neighborhood with lots of trees and a playground. The children seem happy and respectful of each other, which I believe is an aspect that is emphasized in this childcare. My daughter has learned some valuable social skills here. Overall this is a very nurturing environment.

This provider worked with our unique family hours and really helped accommodate us well. Our kids were extremely comfortable there, and they miss her very much. She is the best childcare provider I have experienced out of over 10 providers.
