Our son has been going here for over one year and we love it! We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the warm, welcoming environment Essie and Rocky have created. Our son has always loved going there and has developed a close relationship with Essie, Rocky, and the other kids. We know that when he is there he is learning, playing, using his imagination, and most importantly safe and loved!

Thank you very much for your kind words, Lauren. We love "working" for our special families. Some days it is actually more play than work though : )

My daughter was well taken care of each day along with the added bonus of someone truly caring for her. Esther and her husband really take the time to teach your child life skills. My two year old has learned manners, she picks up after herself, knows the alphabet, basic numbers, colors, and shapes. Both do a great job job instilling hard work ethic with school ages children as well.

Thank you for the kind words. We are so happy that with the new addition to your family that you are going to be able to now be a "stay at home, Mom"
We are grateful for the time that we had her, and are always happy to hear the parents reviews to know that we did a good job filling in for the parents that have to work. Enjoy them both! We love you guys!

I know my son is always well cared for with Essie. He loves being there and comes home tired from all the fun he has had. Essie is responsive to my needs as a parent sending me pictures on tough work days when requested.

I work in the medical field and thus have a high variability in my work schedule - Essie's Child Care is an absolute life saver! She always takes our kiddo - never hassles me about changing my schedule frequently - and loves on my child endlessly. She is a huge blessing for our whole family.
Esther provides a loving and safe environment with her child care. My daughter has been going here since she was 7 months and is now a few months shy of 3 years old. She loves going there and always gets a big hug when we arrive. I like knowing she's being well taken care
of and loved when I'm not around and I know she is here. Esther is also very flexible with My schedule and even offers to do date nights, which is great.

Aunt Essie watched my 2 kids that mean that world to me. I have a hard time trusting people but when I dropped off my kids I never had a thing to worry about. She is truly amazing! Not only was she there for my kids but also for me. To find someone to watch your kids like she does is hard to come by. Thank you for everything :D
My son has been at Aunt Essie's Child Care for 5 months. I feel so secure when I drop him off, and so does he! After we'd been on vacation for a week, he was so happy to see Esther and Rocky, it was all smiles. I always know my son is being cared for, appropriately disciplined, and LOVED. I really feel like I'm dropping him off with family. You couldn't ask for better daycare providers.
My daughter has been going to Aunt Essie's since she was 9 weeks old and she is now 27 months. I have never felt so at ease having someone else watch my daughter. I love the fact that they have a schedule they follow and stick to it. I always know that no matter what she is always safe as well as cared for. I can't imagine her going anywhere else for child care!!!
Love is the word that summarizes the care given at Aunt Essie's Child Care. Kindness, gentleness and lots of love. This married couple is a team that plays with, feeds and cares DEEPLY for my son. He's been in their care since he was 8 weeks old. He's now 17 months. Very practical and straightforward people. The three references (from moms I spoke with before I chose them) said, "It's like dropping your kids off at grandma and grandpa's house." I totally concur! I would also add that unlike time with grandparents, while there's lots of love, there's no spoiling going on.
