My two young sons have thrived at Backyard Friends! Six months ago when I enrolled my 3 year old he was just beginning to talk, he has now blossomed into a talking machine and is quickly catching up to his friends! Gina and Heather have helped tremendously with his speech and with potty training. Our previous daycare provider would not help potty train at all, even though he has potty training at home and doing great. Gina helped with no questions. My 2 year old is also doing great! Gina has a perfect balance of play and education. The kids are always so proud of their project, which they do everyday. Whether it's a mask or a picture or practicing numbers and letters they can't wait to show it off. I honestly could not be happier than I am with Gina and Heather and neither could my boys. Every time we pass by both boys excitedly yell "Gina's House!" I am so glad I was introduced to Backyard Friends and I appreciate Gina and Heather more than they could now.

Our 3yr old son has been enrolled with Backyard Friends since he was 8mos old. He loves going to "school" every day. Not only is it a fun environment, they also have a great educational program. We proudly showcase his daily art projects in our home. He's always so proud of what he made! The reward system for letter recognition has been awesome- he knows them all! Gina & Erica also helped him with potty training. What a relief! We are so thankful for all that they have done for our son, both socially & intelectually. He is thriving! Our 4mo old baby girl is now enrolled with Backyard Friends too! They are so loving with her. It is a real comfort knowing that she is being well taken care of. I have & will continue to recommend Backyard Friends to anyone that is looking for a great daycare.
I had such a difficult time finding the perfect daycare for my Son and when I came across Backyard Friends and went through the interview process i felt that this daycare was the perfect fit for him! My Son was only 7 Mo. old when he started attending and has been going ever since. What i enjoy the most about this childcare is how well organized the teachers are and how they keep the children on set schedules and do different activities with them throughtout the day. They even teach the babies, Sign Language. How cool is that? I was really impressed when I seen my Son was using his hands and telling me "Bottle" or "More". If your looking for a Friendly, Educated, Secure and Fun place for your Children, I HIGHLY recommend Backyard Friends!!
