1. For Halloween this year, our 2 year old, Jack, said he wanted to dress up as his teacher Miss Donna

    For Halloween this year, our 2 year old, Jack, said he wanted to dress up as his teacher Miss Donna. She’s not just Jack’s beloved daycare teacher; she also cared for our two older boys when they were each his age. Like many other teachers at daycare, she has been an incredible blessing for our entire family. Many of you know the trials and tribulations that come with raising small children. In our case, with two working parents who travel throughout the year, there are many times when my wife and I look at each other and ask, “How are we going to make it through the day?” That’s when the Miss Donna’s of the world step in. This incredible woman has potty-trained each of our 3 boys. No exaggeration – if it weren’t for her, all three would still be in diapers. As extra motivation for our second son, she even made him special underwear with cows and horses, because that’s what it took to motivate him. What a saint! We all have Miss Donna’s in our lives, both personally and professionally. What a great world we live in- that we can reach out for help when needed. Thank you to all the Miss Donna’s out there!

  2. As a deployed daddy of my daughter, Norah, Growing Kids has been wonderful!

    As a deployed daddy of my daughter, Norah, Growing Kids has been wonderful! My wife is staying with her family and we decide to get Norah involved with other kids. We picked Growing Kids. I am in the middle of nowhere and really enjoyed getting pics of my baby while on deployment. Norah really came to love her school/day care and I want to thank all of you guys, teachers, assistants, and Emily for making Norah feel so special. There are many places we could’ve chosen, but this was the best choice! Growing Kids is a very nice place to bring children. I don’t look to saving money when it comes to my daughter. I can say this place is very affordable and friendly. I would definitely recommend them and take solace in knowing you get pics of your child right to your phone!

  3. I appreciate how the teachers let me know what’s going on with my child

    I appreciate how the teachers let me know what’s going on with my child while I am away. They make sure to keep me in the loop on what’s going on with him. As a parent of an only child I know he can be testy and challenging, but his teachers put forth the effort and continually show that he is cared for no matter how challenging he can be. Thank you!

  4. Growing Kids is accommodating with every child’s needs

    We are incredibly happy with Growing Kids. The Director is personable, friendly and always upbeat. The staff are wonderful and absolutely loving and caring of the children. I have appreciated that Growing Kids is accommodating with every child’s needs. From supporting our infant son’s physical therapy developmental needs to allowing me to come in and nurse my little one during my lunch hour. Growing Kids has far exceeded our expectations of childcare. As a mother of two, I highly recommend this place.

  5. Growing Kids has been nothing short of amazing

    Growing Kids has been nothing short of amazing. It has been the perfect fit for us. Lucas loves going and is not only safe, but also learning and thriving! It’s one of the very few parenting decisions that I’ve never had to second guess. I know from the moment he arrives in the morning until he’s picked up at the end of the day, Lucas will be treated with love and respect from his teachers and any other staff that he comes into contact with. He is learning the basics like colors, numbers, letters, etc., but more than that, GK is helping us to guide him into being a good human. I don’t know what more I could ask from a day care. Thanks you so much for taking such good care of Lucas!

  6. It’s the best daycare hands down!

    I would recommend this to anyone!! It’s the best daycare hands down! Everyone was so respectful and helpful from the front desk to the teachers to the director. My son was in 2 different rooms there and I never had any issues! They do such awesome things with the kids especially in the summer!!

  7. I feel like the staff have a genuine interest in their well-being and their education.

    We have used Growing Kids for our children for the past 8 years. They have treated our children very well during this time. Our children have developed a bond with almost all of their teachers. I feel like the staff know my children and have a genuine interest in their well-being and their education. If there have ever been concerns or questions, I have always been able to discuss them with the center. I feel it is a safe place for them when they are not in my care. Our daughter is doing excellent in grade school now and it is in large part due to the wonderful teachers she had at Growing Kids. My son is still at Growing Kids and his teachers are awesome.

  8. I appreciate the variety of things that she is being taught

    My child is doing extremely well in the Preschool 5 class. I appreciate the variety of things that she is being taught that isn’t common in a lot of the other classrooms. She’s also being exposed to STEM education! Thanks Ms. Laura for all you do!!

  9. I absolutely love this daycare as do my children

    I absolutely love this daycare as do my children. We have been with Growing Kids for almost 8 years! My children have always called daycare “school” and that’s just what it is. The children have time to play of course, but everything they do is centered on learning. They are amazing with their Pre-K classes. They help our children get on the right track and prepared for school. I’m so thankful for the wonderful staff that have taken care of my children and the amazing director. The director is so pleasant and easy to speak to. I couldn’t picture my children being in another daycare. We know everyone there and our family is very know as well. I highly recommend them!

  10. We have had nothing short of a phenomenal experience with everyone we have been in contact with.

    Both of our children attend Growing Kid on SR 23. We have had nothing short of a phenomenal experience with everyone we have been in contact with.

    Our oldest is in the Young Preschool class, and has completely flourished. He has learned how to express his emotions without yelling and throwing things, his language has increased tenfold, and he is genuinely happy to be in the classroom every day.

    Our youngest started attending Growing Kids just shy of his first birthday. The teachers made the transition of sending him to school SO EASY. They treat him as their own. They always update us on what is going on with our child and in the classroom.

    I have never felt more comfortable with a group of people around our children. Each and every staff member at the SR 23 location knows our boys (and us) by name.

    If you are looking for a quality place to send your child where you won’t be worried about their care, Growing Kids is it.
