First Friends Child Care
BEST DAY CARE EVER! I have brought my child to First Friends for the past five years, since he was an infant, and I could not be happier with the Center, the staff, the wonderful teachers, and the facility in general. As a single mother I worried tremendously about the care my child would receive when I had to return to work. The staff at First Friends, from the director down, have gone out of their way to make me feel safe and comfortable leaving my son in their care. He has learned so much, has made great friends, and is a happy and well adjusted child, which is all due in no small part to the First Friends educational program. It is the most affordable quality day care center in the area. And I really appreciate that the school puts my child's safety above making a buck - if Ms. Teresa O's child was presenting a danger to the rest of the children as she described in her review, than I applaud the Director for turning away a paying customer in order to protect the rest of the children and keep them safe. I'm not sure about the experience she described with her credit card (I've never had a problem with the billing), but it is true that the Director's husband passed away a couple of years ago, and their was some disorganization in the office at that time. However, that's all been taken care of and I am not aware of any problems since then. I highly recommend First Friends Day Care Center. Go to visit yourself and check it out - you won't regret it!

The Learning Experience
My son has been going here for 3 months and we have nothing but positive things to say. First off we came from another facility that was lacking in almost every area of childcare so we were skeptical about sending our child to the same franchise. However, after sitting down with Ms. Trish & Mr. Nico, our fears quickly turned to excitement. The communication that the staff delivers via email, phone, or simple word of mouth is exceptional. The staff truly cares about the kids and the parents. They even go the extra mile letting you know if there is unusual traffic or congestion in the area so you can adjust your pickup/drop off route accordingly. The teachers are great, and they have no problem reinforcing vocabulary, potty training, and much more.

First Friends Child Care
I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!  My son is in Pre-K at First Friends and he has the most wonderful teacher, Miss Amanda.  She has put together a great academic program designed to prepare the children to start kindergarten at the head of their class.  Since starting with First Friends, my son has learned all of his letters, sounds, and has even started to read! In addition to all of the learning fundamentals, Miss Amanda and the First Friends staff have provided an environment where my son is eager to go to school and to learn!  He loves the friends that he has made, and sometimes doesn't want to leave at the end of the day.  As a working mom, it does my heart good to see him so happy and content at First Friend

The Learning Experience
My daughter has been going here for a year and her experience has been nothing but positive. When she started her social skills were really low. She would not play with other kids nor leave my wife's side. Now she plays soccer and goes to her older sister practice and plays with all the kids. She struggled with recognizing letters and numbers. Now she can point out all the letters. I'm really glad we put her there because the teachers and support staff are amazing.

The Learning Experience
My Daughter has been going there for a year now. She has really progressed both socially and educationally over the last year due to this school. The teachers and staff care about every students development. The school is clean and well maintained along with a welcoming atmosphere.
