Where do I even start..?! I found Mrs. Tina in 2018 and of course being cautious of who I was going to leave my son with basically all day, my husband and I met with several other care givers and went to several daycares.. yet we were drawn back to Tina and her loving personality and welcoming home. She is 100% reliable.. she has never had a sick day, snow day or any other scheduling issues.. if she did plan a week away you would know months in advance with plenty of time to make accommodations. My son is now going to be 5 and he loves going to school.. she does workbooks, painting and crafts everyday.. they play outside and my son will only nap for her lol. Tina always does something for special occasions with the children, Easter Egg Hunts.! Halloween Parties she also makes homemade pizzas with them (which my son loves.! ) A couple of months ago he came home speaking German sentences .! Like I mentioned he is 5 and I am dreading putting him in Kindergarten, I might keep him another year with Mrs. Tina that's how great she is and how much he loves going there, not to mention he is smart as heck.. the one on one time that is given by Tina is truly noticed with his strong skills, vocabulary, even mathematics.! I honestly believe we were truly lucky to find her and would recommend her to any family looking to enroll their child in a fantastic, loving and caring atmosphere.!

Mrs. Bettina is a godsend. She really runs a tight ship when it comes to child care. I have two sons. My 2.5 year old comes home everyday with paintings he made and different crafts she does throughout the day. She has a
Nice big yard for the kids to play in with all kids toys and a jungle gym. My sons vocabulary has even increased drastically since being here. If your looking for a great daycare and trust worthy person this is your spot!!!!

I've known Bettina for 12 years now, my nephew and niece used to go her, and for the last 5 years my daughter has been going to her. She is such a wonderful person inside and out. Always felt safe dropping the kids off there. My daughter absolutely adores Bettina. She cares so much about all the kids, it's just not a job for her, she puts her heart and soul into all the kids. I would recommend her to anyone. When you walk into dropping your kid off you feel the love in there. Bettina is definitely the way to go for your kid she always has fun activities for the kids, something for each holiday she also teaches kids. My daughter fully knew her abcs and knew how to count to 20 by the age of 2 1/2. We both love Bettina so much !!

Miss Tina is one of those people who were put on this earth to nurture and take care of children. Every fiber of her being is kind and loving. I was extremely fortunate to find her when my son was only a year and a half old. She took care of him until last week when my son started kindergarten. I consider her to be like a second mom to my son. Tina does awesome crafts, reading and writing time, she has a fantastic fenced in backyard equipped with an awesome jungle gym! There is structure at her daycare and routine for all ages. I wish this review could do her justice but I would highly highly recommend you go meet her and see for yourself what an incredible experience and start in life this could be for your children.

I found Ms. Bettina when I relocated from Georgia to New Jersey. I am very glad that I found her and that my children are in her care. Ms. Bettina takes care of my 2 y/o twins (boy/girl). Since being with her they have increased their vocabulary, interest in arts/crafts and social interaction with others. Aside from that she is a very genuine and nice lady and truly cares about the children. My children are excited to go to "school" every day. I highly recommend her with no reservation.

Where do I begin. Bettina has taken care of 2 my other kids since they were little now they are 13 and 10. I just had a baby and now she takes care of him as well . We love her she's the best around. She does arts and crafts with the kids and teaches them on their own level. I've known Bettina for a very long time she's a very nice woman she's not only my kids babysitter I consider her one of my friends. She's a wonderful babysitter , reasonable cost and the hours are great for any working parent. You will be very pleased with her Services you will never have to worry about your kids they are in great hands. I highly recommend her.

I've had 2 of my children go through Bettina AKA "Tina's" day care and it's been nothing but smooth sailing. There is a schedule and routine which I know the kids thrive on. I also appreciate the open and honest communication. Both of my children thoroughly enjoyed their time there, playing, crafting, learning & making friends. Highly recommend her.

Bettina is by far the best child care I have ever experienced. My son went for 3 years and then I put my daughter at 4 because I had to work full time and could not afford preschool. She is now starting kindergarten and she knows how to read and write all letters and numbers also can spell and write her name. Bettina sat down with her everday and completed many preschool books with her. She runs her day care out of her home but maintains a preschool setting. She has a schedule just like any other preschool. She sings songa and does a lot of very cute arts and craft projects with them. She doesn't just watch your child she interacts with them does things with them and makes it a great experience for the kids. My kids loved going there. I never had a problem with them not wanting to be there. They actually were very upset when it was time to move on to kindergarten. She also is very affordable. I would recommend Bettina before any other day care.

Ms Tina is such a humble spirit, can't help but love her. My kids went to her for over a year and she was so caring and accomadating, I would recommend anyone looking for a safe place to have your kids while you work. Miss Tina is the one.

My daughter was with Bettina's school for 4 years. She is caring, thoughtful and attentive and i always knew that my daughter was in good hands. She loved going there. She got excellent education through Bettina's one on one. My child was already at kindergarten level before she went into kindergarten. Bettina is great with kids and made my child and i happy.

If you are looking for a clean, safe and all around good learning experience for your child, look no further than Bettina. My son has been with her for over 3 years and I am happy with his progress in writing, shapes, numbers and just being a well rounded child. She is affordable, very attentive and demonstrates that she wants the best for each child in her care. You will be pleased with her service and am thrilled that I went with her 3 years ago when I initially had doubts. Best decision ever!

Bettina has watched my kids (4) over the last 13 years. Her home is clean, the kids enjoy the toys and activities including age appropriate learning activities. Bettinas prices are very reasonable. I still use her to this day and will miss her when my youngest enters kindergarten. The kids love "tinas school".

Wonderful Childcare Provider at Very Reasonable Cost
As a mother of one little girl, I was nervous about who would watch my three year old for me. My daughter is our world. When I entered the home, I was struck by the happy nature of the children and the teacher, "Miss Bettina." Unlike a corporate daycare where sometimes children are on rigid schedules and appear stressed, Bettina's atmosphere was warm and loving with soft alphabet songs playing in the background. As a former teacher in the NJ public school system, I was impressed by all of the child centered art on display-nothing from a box-all created by the children.
My daughter ran into the play and learning room in her home and never looked back! I was truly surprised on how fast she adjusted but Miss Bettina made it easy with her firm yet friendly manner. Betttina is a natural caregiver who puts her heart and soul into the age appropriate hands-on activities for birth thru four. I was welcome to sit in on a lesson on the rug during her circle time and was very pleased as Bettina guided the children through the shapes, colors and the days of the week seamlessly.
If you hire Bettina, you will never regret it. My only child continues to thrive with her. She is a gem and you will be hard pressed to find anyone who will care for your child (in the loving way you would like your child to be treated) for the money. Please contact me if you have any questions as hiring her for the education and social stimulation is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Bettina sees that children do not have problems; only possibilities
