I've know Frankie since I was a young Kid, I use to be in a dance team called Drill Team and I did it for a few years with her it was so much fun! It's something I tell people when I talk about my childhood! She's always been great with kids as long as I've known her, and she's always passionate about what she does. She's always giving me great advice and helping me through struggles I've had, Frankie is sweet, kind, outgoing and so much fun! I can't think of anyone better to watch kids. If I had children I would definitely go to her to watch them! Maybe one day! She's so Amazing!

If you're looking for a run-of-the-mill daycare, then this is not your place. If you're looking for someone who will grow to be an extended part of your family with someone to care and nurture your child as you would, you've met your match. Deciding to take my son here is one of the best decisions we've made for both him and for us, and it's benefited us all greatly. Not only was he given excellent care, he was surrounded by children he truly considers friends and a family that he truly considers his own. From the all organic diet, the random art projects, the outdoor play, weekly lesson plans, and never ending amount of toys and supplies, your child will definitely enjoy their time here. I whole heartedly recommend Big Giggles Little Wiggles!

I've known Frances for years every since elementary school! Used to coach me during drill team and would help with after school programs. She is a hard working and does whatever she sets her mind to. She is a great teacher, and motivator. She's very loving and is a great listener and gives great advice! Kids are defiantly her go to she was born a natural! She's is just such a fun and upbeat person who wouldn't love to be around frances? She defiantly is doing what she's always wanted to do and I couldn't be more proud! I would defiantly recommend Miss Frances!

My family has used Frances for over two years now. She's watched our son since he was three months old, and she keeps our daughter in the summer while school is out. When first looking for childcare, I was apprehensive about using an in-home daycare, thinking our son wouldn't get the same exposure/learning opportunities he would in a larger daycare like we'd become accustomed to with our daughter. After meeting with Frances though, I felt much more at ease and decided we should test it out. Now, I can say I am beyond 100% glad we did! Frances has become like family to us, and my children have grown to love her so much. Not only does her daily structure foster the chance to grow and learn, but the care she takes with all her students far surpasses anything I imagined. She feeds them organic food, allows them plenty of imaginative play, coddles them when they're feeling sick, supports them each as their own independent individual selves, and loves on them like you would expect family to do. She has been amazing about communicating with us through the daily app updates, a weekly email, and our dropoff/pickup chats; I've never once had to guess what happens day-to-day. Bottom line: there is no one else I would trust with my children as much as I trust Frances. She is a keeper!

Our daughter attended from 6 months to 18 months and loved it. Very professional, clean, organized, and caring atmosphere.

I have known Frankie since I was a child myself, so about 14 years, give or take a few. She has been watching children ever since I can remember. When Frankie figures out what she wants she become extremely zealous about what she wants to accomplish and will not stop until she reaches her goal. Whenever Frankie takes on a task she goes not just 100% in but goes over the top and gives 150% of her time and effort into making sure everything runs great. Frankie even watched me several years ago when I went to an after school program and she encouraged me to be all that I wanted to be and if I put in my best effort and stayed passionate about my dreams and grades that I would do great in life. Ms. Frankie also coached a drill team in which I joined at a very young age. Frankie was very passionate about us having fun while dance but also keeping our grades up in classes. I have yet to meet someone who is as passionate about children and helping them out as Frankie. I cannot put into words how amazing Frankie is with watching and helping kids. Whenever I go back into Columbus and meet with Frankie I am amazed at everything she has accomplished. I am confident in recommending Frankie and saying she is amazing at what she does. If I had a child I would take them to Frankie; however, I do not. Frankie works hard for what she wants and she will not let you down. Frankie has been my role model for quite some time and back when she was my coach everyone loved Frankie. Your children will be safe with her and will learn a lot! I am so happy to have met Frankie when I did.

I have know Frankie for over 20 years! She has been watching children since she was old enough to babysit, and chose to work in the daycare profession as soon as she was of age to work. She is passionate about what she does and gives 100%(and then some) of herself for her daycare. Every time I go to her home I am amazed at the functionality, organization, and care that is put into her home business and how she keeps the daycare separate from her living space. I have seen her at work and have seen the love and care that she gives each and every child she watches. All of my family and friends wish she was closer to us so we could take our children to her daycare. Big Giggles Little Wiggles is the perfect name for this daycare because every time I see Frankie and her daughter, it's always giggles from Frankie and wiggles from her little girl!

Ms. Frances is wonderful! My entire family adores her. She has sat for my kids a few times, and they always come home happy. One of my kids is autistic, so finding a care provider who was trained and sensitive to my child's special needs was extremely important. Ms. Frances has been able to take on my child with the most amazing grace. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have found someone you can leave your children with, and have not a single worry in regards to their safety and well-being. She's awesome!

My family and I were very pleased with care that my daughter recieved. My daughter always seemed happy at pick up and drop off, along with all the other children. The daily updates were a huge plus for me, especially for easing my wifes general anxiety. The fact that Miss.Frances is a Steelers fan was also a plus! Definitely recommend care from her.

My little man LOVES his Ms. Frances!! Ms. Frances has cared for my little one since I went back to work. She is the only daycare provider I have ever used and ever plan to use. As a first time parent, it was very difficult to select someone I felt comfortable leaving my little man with. It literally kept me up nights wondering if there was anyone out there who could care for my little one the way I do. The first day was hard, the second a little easier and by the end of the first week I knew I had made the right choice. My little man was happy and thriving and that made it so much easier to leave him in her care.
BGLW is the definition of an in-home daycare. We get the best of both worlds. The days are scheduled and there are specific areas for playing, napping and eating but my little man feels very comfortable and is cared for like one of the family. In fact, some days he is too busy playing with his Ms. Frances to notice I have arrived. Reaffirming that I made the right choice in care.
Maybe you have noticed that I keep using the word "care". That is because Ms. Frances provides care in the truest and most comprehensive sense of the word. She cares for my little man mind, body and soul. She spends time with each child focusing on their individual development and learning. She gives them organic meals and snacks and has an abundance of huggies for any boo-boo. She prays with them and has a collection of bibles for children she reads to them every day. And I thank God every day for leading me to Ms. Frances and BGLW.

Unprofessional. Great with the kids but changed policies without discussion or notification. No response when concerns were voiced. We are still waiting to get her tax number. We were also hoping to get our sons art that she had told us she was saving to make a portfolio of for a full year but never gave us. Unfortunately I'm worried will will not get it or the tax number out of spite.
Should we get either I will remove this post
I would not recommend her which makes me so sad. We thought she was amazing when we meet her and our sons loves her.

My kids LOVE Miss Frankie! And truth be told, so do I. She has babysat my kids for years, and provides amazing care! My kids actually beg to go to her house. She is extremely professional and very organize. Because she does not allow the kids to sit in front of the television all day, she gives the children an opportunity to use their imaginations. She's is big on educating children, and helping them with life skills. Watching her interaction with my children is beautiful. I can tell that she truly loves and cares for them. She is incredible and I would recommend her services to anyone who is looking for exceptional care.

Miss. Frances took care of my infant daughter for several months. I honestly cannot say enough positive things about our experience with her! Her house is literally set up for childcare! It's impeccably clean and open. There is a playroom that is gated for the safety of the little ones to explore freely, a separate nap area and they eat all together in the kitchen. She provided ORGANIC breakfast, lunch and two snacks a day. Each child has there very own pack n play for sleeping and very own high chair for eating that she provides. She has it set up for both learning and play and does a great job incorporating language and literacy development even at early ages! She sees the importance of both structured activities and free play. She incorporates art and music as well as physical activity! She also does a great job at incorporating christian values and teaching about the bible, which I absolutely love! She also includes great structure and schedule based days which are wonderful. She exudes a very loving and nurturing vibe, and my little one always had the brightest smiles for her at drop off! Having worked in child care myself, I have very high expectations. Being a first time mother leaving my daughter in someone else's care was never easy, but leaving her with Miss. Frances I felt at ease knowing how great her care is and how happy my daughter and all of the other students were and that made it a little easier. She also made sure that the daily logger AP was up to a live feed. Therefore, I literally knew everything that was going on with my peanut and she sent me pictures throughout the day and would respond to my texts letting me know she is having a great time or sometimes a rough day, which I absolutely love to receive! She also had a great job at keeping in touch with parents and letting them know when a sub would be there that day. When I decide to adventure back to work and will need care again, she is the first and only option on my list!
