I have been using this daycare for 6 years now, since my daughter was 2 years old. My children love it here and see Laura as part of their extended family. As a military member, I appreciate that Laura is willing to watch my kids any day of the week, at any time. She is extremely flexible and even provides deployment care. My son had a speech delay, and she worked with us to teach him sign language and used techniques his therapist recommended. He is now, at age 3, well ahead of other children his age in terms of kindergarten preparedness. The children feel safe, secure, and loved while in her care - I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I have used Laura for seven years now. She cared for my daughter when she was a baby and continues to care for her now that she is seven. Working in law enforcement, if I had to work late or work night shifts, my daughter could stay later, or spend nights there without having issues. Having a responsible provider to care for my daughter while I was working nights, or late, put my mind at ease. Her home is exceptionally clean and she ensures all children use appropriate mannerisms while interacting with each other and adults.
My child attended this daycare for 4 years. I was always certain that she was safe and well taken care of. My daughter learned some basic sign language which helped alleviate some of the tantrums during the "terrible twos" since she could tell me when she wanted juice, water, more food, or even when she had to potty. She learned her colors, coins, even started writing. My child started school with a huge leg up on the other kids already knowing her alphabet and able to read quite a bit.
