When my daughter was 2 it was time to move from home care with her grandmother to a daycare for the experience to grow and learn and socialize with other kids. Like most mothers I do not make the decision of choosing child care easily, nothing but the best would do. I found Joy after doing a lot of research and visiting many centers in the area. I knew Joy was the best place by far after my very first visit and there was no other place I would ever consider again. My daughter has loved the center and everyone there since day one, even when it was hard for me to leave her that day, worried it would be difficult for her to adjust, she just waved and said "Bye Mom" then ran off to play. The teachers are all very loving, patient, attentive and absolutely great with the kids. It's very clean and safe and has a fantastic, structured curriculum that doesn't compare to any other daycare I have ever seen. It has been 3 1/2 years now and my daughter is finally starting kindergarten already knowing how to read and write on a first grade level! My husband and I feel very blessed to have found Joy, Ms. Cher and Mr. Mel and all the wonderful teachers who have helped shape my baby girl into such a smart, well mannered and genuinely happy child. Thankfully we live close by and she will attend the local elementary school so she will most likely be staying at Joy until she is too old to go anymore :-)

In searching for a child care provider, it has been quite a hardship for my 21/2-year old daughter and I. I tried putting her in a private caregiver's home, but it just didn't work out for us. In short, my daughter was watching TV a lot of the time and I just didn't believe she was getting enough attention and or was not being looked after by the caregiver 100% of the time. She cooked their meals and went to the restroom (without a substitute replacing her) during the child caring times. This was not acceptable to me. I tried several licensed centers, but was disappointed with much of their services, because, what mattered to me most-care, safety, & program content-was lacking or not intensive enough. Luckily, I received an advertisement from Joy and went to see them. This place was more than I expected to get. Joy is a modest-size building, but has a great team of directors and teachers who have a passion for caring and teaching children. My daughter is now enrolled here. I have dropped by at many different times of the day and have always seen my daughter busy learning vocabulary & songs, making art, playing outdoors and more. What I like about Joy is that they have made me feel comfortable and my child very happy. Here, she has discovered her talents and is challenged to learn more. We feel very fortunate to have found Joy.
I am a parent that is very pleased with what I see at Allstars Daycare and Preschool. In the Infant classroom, you'll see the teacher holding, caring for, and playing with each child.They talk to the babies, helping them develop their language skills. The also have toys to help them work on their physical skills. The best part about this daycare is that they start your child with My Baby Can Read in the infants classroom up to 3 years of age.In the toddler classroom, the children enjoy being held and read to . Each day in Circle Time they enjoy songs teaching them their name, colors, shapes, days of the week, ect. The also do activities that help them to develop their language skills along with their small and large muscle skills. The teachers work on their social and emotional skills with adult interaction. They are taught to recognize their name and numbers, so by the time they turn 3 years old they are ready for Preschool. My child has been in this daycare since it open and is now three and knows how to read. I just had a new baby and just enrolled her at this daycare. Me myself have been up to the daycare to look in on the class to make sure that what I saw the first day was what my child would be learning and have watch in on every class thats how I no if you take your kids to the Center you will LOVE the outcome.....
