My younger daughter was lucky to find Blue Star. The care she received was top level. Mallory and her assistant designed all kinds of activities and my little one enjoyed a lot. I highly recommend this day.

I am an Early Intervention therapist and my child attends Blue Star. The atmosphere the teachers have created provides a positive, calm, and natural learning based environment for the children. The children engage daily in age appropriate activities that amaze me. The curriculum includes learning new theme songs, letters and numbers, and practical life activities such as learning about plants. The space is beautiful both indoor and outdoor. The children are happy, independent and engage well with others. I highly recommend Blue Star!

Mallory coming into my life was a true miracle! Leaving your child with someone new can be scary. I researched a lot of centers and feel blessed to have been recommended to Mallory. I have full confidence that my 1 year old son is in very loving and caring hands. He is even identifying his numbers and letters! Mallory and Blue Star has a great curriculum that is helping the little one learn in way that is fun and engaging. I highly recommend Mallory and Blue Star with no hesitation.

We started with Blue Star when our son was 4 months old and we currently couldn't be happier after 3 months of attendance. After looking at over a dozen daycare centers and home daycares we finally found Mallory and her team at Blue Star Home Daycare. I knew from our first meeting this was where my son should be.
They have a constantly rotating, age appropriate curriculum and you can see each child enjoying themselves in the pictures sent via text (daily) and through social media (blocked account for parents which needs to be requested to view). Mallory's home and yard are very clean and filled with educational items and toys for each child.
Not only is Mallory knowledge, friendly and caring, so is her staff. We absolutely adore the staff member Ali and so does our son.
We have confidence in Blue Star and could not be happier with our decision. I would highly recommend this home daycare to family and friends and if you are in the market for new child care make sure to make an appointment. Thank you Blue Star!

Our son loves the comforts of his second home and extended family at Blue Star Home Day Care. It makes me so happy to see how well our son enjoys his time there. He reacts the same way to Mallory a he does to his own Gramma and they provide such caring and thoughtful attention.

We appreciate that many of the activities are specifically geared towards cognitive and motor skills development. Finger painting with yogurt or squeezing homemade play-dough; Super Fun! Homemade baby foods and baked goods; even better (our little guy LOVES to eat). After a day at Blue Star, Cal sleeps very well and through the night.

Mallory is incredibly accommodating and as a busy surgeon with a hectic schedule, Blue Star Home Daycare is a godsend! I'm not sure what people are talking about when they say the prices have changed 3 times in a year. There has only been one price change this year and it was quite reasonable.

My son loves Mallory and Aly and I wouldn't send him anywhere else. They really are like family to us.

Our son has been going to Blue Star for over a year and it's been great. Mallory and Aly have been wonderful and he's very much loved there. I would highly recommend.

My son goes to Blue Star Daycare and enjoys every minute that he is there. He jumps right into Mallory and Ally's arms when greeeted at the door! This makes for a much easier good bye and day away at work.
It was very emotional for me the first day I had to drop him off being a new mom but Mallory and her staff were very compationate and accomdating! Mallory is always very accomadting with our crazy work schedules!!
Mallory's daycare is beautifully set up inside and outside with bright colors and stimulating toys for all ages!
When my son started to eat solids I was blown away with the kosher and all natural foods Mallory was making for all the kids! I am so happy to have found a wonderdul daycare where my son is taken great care of!

Our son (2 yrs. old) has been at Blue Star Daycare for almost a year. As parents we were nervous about switching daycares, but were extremely fortunate to find Blue Star. We absolutely love Mallory and Aly and everyone at Blue Star . They consistently do an outstanding job with the all children. It is apparent that they strive to create warm and welcoming atmosphere that all the children love. Mallory creates home cooked meals that are fun and healthy. My son truly enjoys going to Blue Star everyday. They constantly send us pictures of our son engaged in various learning activities or just having fun. They are quick to answer questions and provide updates. Mallory's responses to parents are extremely reassuring. There communication is clear and always puts the best interest of the students first. Blue Star is one of the best daycares in the area.

mallory and blue star day care is the only place I trust for my daughter. She has been there since she was 6 weeks old and is absolutely stimulated when she is there. In fact, she smiles and gets so excited when she sees Mallory welcome her in the morning. Mallory only cares about the care and well being of the children. the children always come first. I would absolutely recommend this day care. mallory is as honest as they come and provides a loving environment that your child won't get anywhere else other than your own home.

I was hesitant about putting my son in daycare and was reassured by the positive attitude and environment that was provided. My son attended this daycare for two months and we were blindsided with two days notice that our son no longer had a spot and we would need to seek alternatives within a two day time span. It is incredibly frustrating and upsetting and I would not recommend this daycare provider. I would hate for someone to have to go thru this and feel as though their hand is forced to pick a new provider because given the two day notice finding care for an infant is incredibly stressful. Prices also increased 3x while he attended. Extremely disappointed with how the situation was handled.

Understanding your disappointment. I am very sorry for your family's experience- due to my husband's unexpected surgery. I appreciated you concern and understanding at the time and offered alternative care options which were unfortunately unsatisfactory for you. Wishing you only the best.

While the child care seemed great in the three months my son was there, the owner unexpectedly told us our son could no longer attend with less than 24 hours notice. Very unprofessional and untrustworthy. The owner also hired and fired 4 employees and raised prices twice in the three months our son was there. Do not count on this place !!

Mallory's home day care is a nurturing, safe and happy environment. She clearly has a passion for caring for infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers as well as children of all ages. Mallory takes the time to understand the developmental needs of each child as well as the needs of the family.

Mallory is our neighbor and friend. Since opening Blue Star, Mallory has graciously cared for my two girls (elementary school aged), on an "as needed basis" when I have been in a bind for childcare. She offers flexibility whenever possible.

I highly recommend Blue Star Home Day Care. Mallory takes joy in her work and will make your child feel loved and cared for. My girls love going to Mallory's!

Mallory at Blue Star is the best! She has been gracious and more than flexible when accommodating our sometimes changing schedules. And most importantly, she makes us feel like family. I feel so much better going to work every day knowing that my 8-month-old son is in a stimulating and loving environment with someone I trust very much.

Mallory is great! Blue star day care is a warm loving place and I knew it the minute I walked in. Our son is been there for almost a year and we feel like family.

This daycare was exciting, stimulating, and fun for my infant, who attended from age 12 weeks to 15 months. My daughter was exposed to early socialization, nutritious and homemade meals, and a greater variety of experiences than she had at home with busy working parents. One of my daughter's first 50 words was "Mallory!" Mallory was also hard-working and flexible, which was a godsend with our demanding work schedules.
