Our 4 year old son has been going to Bullfrogs & Butterflies full-time since he turned one year old. He's now in the Preschool program and he absolutely loves going to school. He has always had great teachers who are genuinely invested in his growth and happiness. He cherishes the friendships that he's developed at school. As parents, we feel good knowing that he gets a variety of experiences and lessons at school, ranging from academic to social skills to bible study. They have a webcam and an app so you can stay connected with what your child does throughout the day, and they send a daily report at the end of the day as well. We also plan to enroll our newborn in the infant room later this summer. We definitely recommend this center for trusted childcare!

I have been with B&B just over 3 months and it has been amazing! I came from another center in the Kalamazoo area. Coming to B&B was scary at first, but my first day everyone was so welcoming and made you feel right at home! I love coming in and feeling like it’s a second family. The admin and staff are amazing, they make the work days go by super fast, they’re always looking for new ways to help employees more up the career ladder and get new training opportunities! I’m glad I made a great choice to join the B&B family! ❤️
As a current employee who has been with the company for over 3 years, I can honestly say that I am very happy with where I am at. Before coming to B&B i worked for a center where myself and the other employees worked 10-12 hour days with no breaks and little to no guidance on how to better myself or any area involving the child care center. Coming to B&B, I have found myself feeling very appreciative of the support to grow and further my education in child care and development. I am employed by a company who provides an online training source at no cost to me in which i can obtain professional development hours required by state licensing, and provides professional development days that also contribute to my required hours for the year. In the field of child care, so much relys on ratios in the classroom and each day we are offered breaks, of which our goal is 1 hour, but occasionally will be 45 minutes due to staff calling in sick (it happens and we have health department guidelines that we must follow). In my eyes, the effort to give us the longest breaks possible is so important, they never want to cut our breaks short but there are times where we are left with no other option. Coffee and snacks are provided in our staff/family lounge for us to enjoy on our breaks. I also work with a group of driven co-workers with the same goal in mind, to have a positive impact on the growth and development of every child that comes into my care. In every place of employment, I feel that there will always be some issues to be worked out, however, I do not feel that there has ever been an issue left unresolved at B&B. Openness, honesty, and respect are all traits that are reciprocated when addressing an issue with those traits intact. The safety of the children is not a subject that is taken lightly - it is the most important part of our job. I would recommend working for B&B if you are a hardworking, driven, respectful, fun-loving, compassionate, and mindful person.
Bullfrogs and Butterflies is so much more than a daycare. The curriculum they provide starting at birth is amazing. My daughter was already learning sign language and they enhanced her vocabulary by teacher her more signs in her infant room. Now that she is a toddler she is exposed to many activities a day addressing pre-academic, developmentally appropriate skills. As a parent I know that my daughter is safe, cared for, and loved at Bullfrogs and Butterflies!
Bullfrogs and Butterflies is a very caring and wonderful daycare. What was most appealing to me when we first started was the camera system so that I could see my daughter any time of day. A new mom at the time, that made me feel comfortable that I could see her, but also that the employees were being monitored by myself and other parents. I am a teacher myself and have taught pre-school and have high expectations for the teachers. The teachers at B&B have always had the children’s best interests in mind when making decisions in the classroom. I recommend this impressive facility for families who are looking for a Christen based daycare with a loving atmosphere.
