I am a full time worker in need of child care services for my son. During the year of 2005 I needed a child care provider for my 3 month old son. I was very fortunate to have found Tiny Steps Daycare. I met with the director to view the facility and I was extremely impressed with the friendly and warm environment that was being provided for the children attending the daycare center. When I leave my son I know he is in good hands. They provide a safe and secure place for the children. They offer many educational activites, as well as healthly meals and snacks. The kindness and patients of the staff is outstanding. The center is always kept clean and organized. My son is 6 year old now and continues to attend Tiny Step Learning Center newly opened K thru 3rd grade. Overall, I would definitely recommend this child care provider for any other family in need of daycare and school services. Their background experience and strong abilities to connect with children, they can definitely offer everything a family would be looking for in a provider.
I can't think of a better place for my kids. I have twins and they have been part of The bright days preschool since they are three months old. It is our second house, and I totally trust everyone in there to take care of my girls. I owe a lot to that school, being a full-time med student they made possible for my kids to be fully potty trained at age 2, they have also been very flexible with all our needs. My kids already know how to write their names, numbers from 0 to 30, draw, dance, and their social skills are amazing. Everyone is so impressed with their education, and all I can say is that we owe a lot to the bright days. Oleidis, the owner, her mother(who takes care of one of the facilities) and all the staff. They are our family, and we will always be in debt with them. My girls enjoy every day at school, and that is an amazing feeling as a parent, to know that we have chosen the right place for them to spend 7 hours per day. We totally love The bright days, and every single parent I had to refer in 3 years is extremely happy too.
My son has been attending Mini Me for almost a year now. He is 2 years and 3 months and knows how to count on his own from 1-10 in both English and Spanish, basically can sing the alphabet, knows ALL animals and their sounds and knows more Spanish than my Husband and I, it's amazing! I love this school and highly recommend it. The teachers are very caring and attentive, and the director and her staff are always very pleasant and helpful. The facility is always very clean (bathrooms, kitchen, classrooms and outside play area). Only down-fall, my son is always catching a cold or some type of cooties, but that's the case with any daycare environment and the age, not Mini Me Academy's fault. I know he will eventually build up an immunity. Still I rather him learn and interact with children his age than stay at home during the most important toddler learning years and gain nothing....after all you can't keep your children in a bubble =) Thanks Mini Me Academy-You're doing a fantastic job with Justin! ~Justin's Mom & Dad
Since the very first day, we knew that Kendall TLE was the right place for our 18 month old son to begin his first social experience away from home. With an amazing team and a rich learning program, our baby enjoys different experiences every day. I can tell that my son enjoys every day at TLE along to his lovely teacher. He has learned new things like songs, new words, phrases and sign language. We could not be happier with Kendall TLE Center and its team. Desde el primer día que visitamos el TLE de Kendall, supimos que era el lugar que estábamos buscando para que nuestro niño de 18 meses comenzara su experiencia fuera de casa. Con un excelente equipo y un amplio programa de aprendizaje, nuestro niño vive variadas experiencias todos los días. Puedo decir, que mi niño disfruta cada día junto a su amorosa maestra y sus compañeritos de aula. Ha aprendido nuevas cosas, desde canciones, nuevas palabras hasta lenguaje de seña que utiliza también en casa. No podemos estar más felices con el equipo de TLE de Kendall!
My son Kalehl has been Enrolled and is starting soon! I've been a stay at home mom since my son was born. He is now two months shy of his third birthday! My goal was to teach him the fundamentals ABC's,123's, a Love of reading, shapes & colors. To my surprise he quickly excelled at anything I put in front of him. He now knows sight words, can count to 100 & backwards from 59, his reading abilities shock me everyday... Needless to say we had a huge emphasis on the academic aspect of all The facilities we visited however The learning experience Kendall was The only one that not only met but exceeded all of our expectations & needs. I was completely blown away by the curriculum, I love that he will get the chance to learn a second language, seriously they have lesson plans on traveling the world and philanthropy!!! The staff are warm and inviting, The learning experience Kendall is also immaculate. I joke that this is toddler College but I seriously I'm in love with this school!
My son and daughter have been at this school for 3 years! My son is entering Kinder & my daughter Pre-K. The teachers at this school are PHENOMENAL! One of a KIND (coming from a high school teacher of 11 years)...the only negative things I have to say is that the administration uses ANY opportunity to make a quick buck! My son's pre-K graduation was $35 per person (including my 3 yr old and my son-who was graduating)...and we had to buy my son's costume (another $100 for his suit and shoes)...for a grand total of $240 for my husband & I and our 2 kids! AND there was a LICE outbreak this year, and the admin felt they didnt need to report this to the HEALTH DEPT or let parents in other classrooms know...these are the ONLY reasons my 2 kids will be attending a near by Public Elem school next year! Hopefully they can get it together...or soon they will lose their GREAT teachers TOO!!!
The person who wrote the negative review is obviously a competitor who wants to discredit the center. There has been no child that has had bruises, nor bumps. Any reports made to DCF by a parent are investigated. And none have been made. Unfortunately, there are many other child care centers in the area that do this type of nasty tactics to discredit the competition. You are invited to visit the center unannounced at any time. All of our staff is certified and FBI cleared. We are an educational facility with the upmost regard for our children. We have been in business for 12 years. Unfortunately, in this age of technology these things are allowed. And this is an illegal practice called defamation of character. And it will be investigated. I look forward to your visit where you may view all of our DCF reports that are all outstanding. Thank you
On behalf of my family, I would like to express my appreciation to Tiny Steps Daycare and there staff for caring for my child. My daughter was a 1 year old. As a “working” mother, I felt the guilt of having to leave my child with someone other than myself. This centers approach to childcare, especially babies, put my guilt at ease. With over 6 years experience, they have honed the skills and techniques of caring for young ones. The center also has an instinctive nature of what babies need. My child was at there care four years. I appreciated the safe facilities, the bilingual environment, and the positive, nurturing atmosphere that the center created. We highly recommend Tiny Steps Daycare to all my friend and family.
I'm incredibly pleased with this daycare. The journey to find the right school for our child was an emotional rollercoaster. Our child's teachers, epecially Ms. Elsa and Ms. Delila, are incredibly caring and hard working. When my child started at this school her classroom was bare, but they have worked incredibly hard to make it an inviting and stimulating environment. My child has thrived tremendously being in their care and my child loves being there. The smile that comes onto her face when she sees her teachers reinforces my decision to send her to this school. I couldn't be more grateful for Ms. Elsa and Ms. Delila for all their hard work and attention they show the infants in their class. Thank you ladies!
This place is amazing! The staff helped out so much in adjusting to the changes we would encounter in our lives. I was a stay-at-home Mom for almost two years and it was time to go back to work. My son was extremely attached to me, and cried the first few weeks, but now he loves it so much, that he gives me a tour of the school almost everytime I go to pick him up! LOL!! He loves his teachers and enjoys time with the classmates. He's learning more each day; speaks more and comes in the car, singing a song all the time. I love seeing him happy and knowing that he is in safe hands. I appreciate all they've done to make us feel comfortable!!
