Warm, loving teachers. Every child is loved and cared for as their own. Children are prepared for Kindergarten!
I just learned about this place from a Friend, i'm looking for information.
Where should I begin? What started off as a daycare facility we were comfortable with has turned into one we loathe! We are moving our child, and it has taken sometime to find a new place we were comfortable with. Our son, has been picked up by us covered in his own vomit, his own urine and have had a mix up with our child's bottles. We've been accused of not paying, and in emails were we express our concerns we are told that we should discuss face to face because there are misunderstandings. Sadly, the only misunderstanding is the person who recently purchased it is out of her league. Left kids in the daycare for at least 2 weeks without air conditioning. Do not send your kids here! It's not worth the "bargain".
Since new ownership things have not been as good as they once were. They have had the state called in instances where children were put in highchairs to sleep or in bouncy chairs to sleep even though the state mandates that they should be on a cot or crib. The AC has been not working for over a week in this Michigan heat, making the children overly warm and uncomfortable. I would not recommend this day care.
I absolutely love Empower! The staff are all well trained and extremely helpful. Staff is willing to go above and beyond to assist and make sure each client is happy. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Very Nice caring Therapists that go all out to help people who need the therapy ! Even tho I am not finished with mine yet & have a ways to go yet I am Highly Recommend the Garfield clinic Thank you all !
Both of my boys and my niece attend TTU and we truly love it! They have learned so much while they have been there. The teachers are absolutely amazing with them. My 4 yr old is a picky and slow eater and they always make sure he eats. That was a concern for me. My 2 yr old hated books at home and if I sang the “ABC’s” he lost interest. Since going there he sings to me and brings books for me to read to him. I have come in to secretly watch how he is at TTU compared to home and I couldn’t believe how well he listened, behaved, and followed directions. My sister has asked one of the teacher to watch her daughter after TTU closes (because she was stuck at work late) and the teacher gladly did. She was great with her, my niece (2yrs old) loved hanging out with her. The teacher took her to Target and even bought her a toy (my sister had no problem with her taking her out since she had a car seat and it was a last minute request). Whenever I had a concern I spoke to the teacher directly and the director. They always corrected any issues. No place is ever going to be perfect. I have been to other daycares when picking up my nephew and prior to using TTU, and not only do they cost more but they have their flaws as well. The difference I noticed is when I addressed an issue I didn’t feel like they were annoyed with me or that they took it out on my kids. On the contrary, I truly believe they love our kids and take the best care of them. I have recommended TTU to friends and family and will continue to recommend them. Oh, and when a teacher is not cut out to be there…they have fired them. I can appreciate that they want to keep good teachers on staff that want to teach and take care of our kids.
My oldest son has attended Tiny Tot University for 2 years & my youngest has been there almost 9 months. I have never had a concern that didn't get addressed nor have I ever felt like I could not approach staff with concerns. My sons loves their teachers and look forward to going to learn and play. I'm so happy that my husband and I send our boys to tiny tot while we work. My husband and I are so grateful for the wonderful staff at TTU. The staff and owner are very understanding and easy to get ahold of. There has been a lot of change with staff which was handled very smoothly and did not affect the children. I highly recommend tiny tot university to anyone looking for daycare/preschool!!!!!!
Both of my boys attended TTU until they graduated preschool and went on to kindergarten. They were both less than one year old when they started. I loved every minute of their time at Tiny Tot and hated for them to leave. Our whole family had become very close with several of the teachers. I feel that they were loved and taken excellent care of. Each day when I dropped them off I felt very content and comfortable because I knew that they would learn and have fun throughout the day. TTU prepared my boys very well for kindergarten and both knew their letters and sounds when they left. Being a teacher, they were flexible and accommodated my breaks in the summer and during the school year which I greatly appreciated. The new director was a teacher while my boys were there and she was among their favorite. To this day, my boys (who are in 1st and 4th grade) still love going to Tiny Tot when they can and, honestly, I miss them going there too!
I cannot even begin to express my undying gratitude and thanks to the staff at Tiny Tot University. Both of my children attended TTU, and while my daughter is now in second grade, my son remains at TTU. My children started attending TTU when they were young. The staff worked with the specific needs of my children and helped to create a warm, caring, and educational environment for my children. When my mother became ill with cancer, they worked with my constant schedule changes to accommodate the needs of my family during our time of need. The staff at Tiny Tot are unlike other day care/preschool centers I have researched. They take time to prepare quality, invigorating lessons that are not only developmentally appropriate, but thoroughly enjoyable to the kids. Not only that, but they take the time to get to know each and every child while playing with them. There is a new director as of 12/26/14 and though I did like the former director, I LOVE the current director. Ms. Chelsea has proven to love children with all of her being and couldn’t love them more if they were her very own. She works tirelessly to ensure that the children have a quality learning experience every day and even spends her evenings and weekends preparing for the events of the following week.Meeting the demands of many different families is difficult. The staff at TTU goes out of their way to establish an environment that is very much an extension of home for each individual child. They differentiate and ensure that the needs, both physical and emotional, are not only met, but in a way that the children feel loved and thrive. In the five years my children have attended, I have seen very few policy changes and those that were created were as a result of changes in state policy or were simply in the best interest and safety of the children. Simply stated, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tiny Tot University as a day care/learning center to anyone that wants their child to be loved, to learn, and to flourish.
My son has been going to TTU since he was 10 weeks old and he is now in the preschool room. His older brother is a graduate of TTU and he started when he was 6 months old. We are so happy that we found TTU. The owner and her new director are deeply committed to the staff and the children. The school provides the children with educational experiences that prepare them for school and at the same time a warm, loving and nurturing "home” setting. TTU offers employees an educational scholarship to help them obtain the certification and continually improve their childcare skills. The teachers really make an effort to keep you informed about your children (challenges as well as successes). They have created structured themes that make learning fun. The kids look forward to the many extra parties and activities the school provides throughout the year. I have and continue to highly recommend this school to everyone.
