My son is 22 months old and he has been with Marilyn's Family Group daycare since turning age one in July 2011. I was very worried and nervous to place my son in daycare because he had a home nanny for his first year. However, Marilyn put my mind at ease and this was one of the best decisions I ever made to place my son in her home based daycare. He made a great transition. We feel so lucky and blessed to have found Marilyn. We love this daycare and my son loves being here. Marilyn and her staff are absolutely amazing. I can see how dedicated she is and how much she loves what she does. She gives her all and everything to the children. She provides a very safe,organized, clean and nuturing environment for your child. They are very caring and affectionate with every child and they take the time needed to address each child's individual and developmental needs. They provide an atmosphere that is fun with playtime,educational activities, music and dancing. Her daycare is very conducive to learning for your child's growth and development. In almost a year my son has learned so much from being here. He has developed great social skills (he had none when he started). I am so amazed at all the things that she has taught my son. He knows all his ABC's (capital and lower case), shapes, colors and numbers. She is teaching him how to write letters. He can recognize words from flash cards (without the pictures) and he is so excited and enthusiastic about learning and I can attribute all of this to Marilyn. If you are looking for a daycare that is safe, caring and affordable where your child can learn and grow then look no further...Marilyn's Family Group daycare is the best.
