My toddler truly loves Butterfly Childcare and so do it. Therese is caring, thoughtful, thorough, detail-oriented, and joyful. The environment is safe, clean, bright, and nurturing. I am thrilled I found such a wonderful home away from home for my son. Highly recommend.

Butterfly Childcare is probably the best and closest you can get to actually enrolling your child a Montessori type school. Therese is loving, thoughtful, caring, attentive to every detail, structured and my child THRIVES there! She has learned SO much from Therese; from potty training to mannerisms (always says "YES" not yeah) and so much more. We couldn't be happier

I am writing to recommend Butterfly Childcare as our daughter's nanny for the last year. Butterfly Care looked after my daughter for over a year and performed diligently throughout her tenure.

* Supervising children and caring for their needs
* Planning, preparing and serving meals to children
* Changing diapers got her potty trained

Butterfly Care always seemed genuinely interested in children's development and presented new ways of learning that captured their attention.

She is very caring , trustworthy and motivated. Butterfly Care possess all qualities that make a nanny successful.
I highly recommend her for a nanny position.

Our daughter was enrolled at Butterfly Childcare from the age of 4 months to 18 months for an average of 50 hours per week. During that time Therese provided exceptional care and a safe, nurturing, fun, stimulating environment. Our child was well prepared for pre-school because Therese teaches throughout the day; in fact, our child knew her ABC's before she was even 16 months old due to Therese's influence. We never had to worry about sleep training, potty training, or picky eating because Therese literally takes care of it all. Every week our daughter knew more and more about the world around her and was always so happy to be at Therese's home. Due to our personal life we have moved out of state but had we stayed we would have been with Therese with all of our children.

We are very pleased with the level of care provided at Butterfly Childcare for our two sons. Therese is excellent with the children and her home is well organized and very clean. Our children are constantly learning new academic and social skills at Butterfly. Therese also provides healthy, home-cooked meals which is a huge advantage over other day care providers. We are very happy with the level of service provided by Therese.

My son has been attending Butterfly for about a year and my youngest cannot wait to start next month. My son has learned so much and has a great time everyday at Butterfly.
In home care, especially Butterfly, provides my son a more maternal and loving environment which a day care center cannot.

After 3 years of exceptional care for our daughter Liana, I'm happy to say that we made an excellent choice in Butterfly Childcare. The key to a parent's confidence is in knowing that their child is in a safe, nurturing, instructional environment overseen by a loving and creative caregiver. This was met and exceeded at Butterfly Childcare.

My daughter joined Butterfly for a full year, Therese is good with kids as long as she is not overwhelmed and not taking her personal life to run her business. Also, she was good when she only had 3~4 kids in her care, when she started to have close to 6~7 kids, everything went downhill. What really bothered me the most is lotsss of closures with no substitute as it was described in her contract. Although she can find a sub almost once a week to go out for shopping. She does notify us by text messages sometime after 7:00 am that she is closed for the day. As working parents, we do not have that much of vacations days. However Therese recommended that we take our vacation while she is vacationing (nice suggest). She takes 4 weeks off plus all federal holidays. She gossips about parents, give different $$ to every child even for same age and level. She change her policy constant. She changed her contract 2 times within 6 month to fit her life changes. Example: If her parents are sick, she will change her contract to include 3 bereavement paid...etc. I do not recommend this provider to working parents.

My son was always well taken care of and did learn a lot. Things were great at first, but then red flags began to appear about 6 months in. What I didn't like was the preferential treatment her son recieved over the other children. Things became rather concerning a while before I actually removed my son. Therese began gossiping about parents, became quite unprofessional, and unreliable. There were too many times that daycare closed via text at 7 a.m. the day of, or we were asked to pick up early the day of due to various things. When that happens, it affects everyones jobs. At the end of the day I believe Therese would be better suited going back to being a nanny where she doesn't have to, and i quote, "deal with the s*@t parents give her!" She also showed up at my house unannounced after we left the daycare all together, which was completely out of line, among other things. Its all very unfortunate, especially for my son.

My daughter has been with Butterfly Childcare for about three months and I have seen her advance in many ways. Nanny is not only a great childcare provider, she is also a great teacher. My daughter has excelled in language and learning her ABC's, potty training, and playing using her imagination. Nanny has a gift for being creative and planning her days to keep the children busy and having fun while learning at the same time. She also provides healthy home-cooked meals for my daughter each day! I highly recommend Nanny and Butterfly Childcare as she is a reliable, fun and organized provider!

Simply the very best care that you could offer your child! Therese cared for my children for quite a long time and I cant say enough good things about her. She is an expert in childcare and it shows! She is patient, nurturing, and structured. Children instantly bond to her because she loves what she does, simply put this is her calling. She is constantly educating herself in her field and takes her job very seriously. Her home is impeccably clean, she offers home-cooked healthy food choices, and makes learning fun! If you are looking for an exceptional childcare provider Butterfly Childcare is where you will find it.

My daughter loves coming here and has tons of fun while still learning new things everyday. Therese is loving, patient, and very trustworthy. Her house is always clean and very welcoming. I am able to leave my daughter there and not have to worry about her while I am at work because I know she is in good hands. I would HIGHLY recommend Butterfly Childcare to anyone looking for a great place to take care of their little one.
