Camille has been wonderful for our son! He has been in her care since he was 3 months old. From infant to now toddler, I've loved to watch him grow & learn from Camille! She has been amazing in helping him develop social skills, manners, letters, numbers, shapes, & more. I would very much recommend her to anyone!

Where do I begin....our daughter Raffaela has been in Camille's care since she was 3 months old. Raff is now 3 years old and almost ready for preschool. While we will miss Camille's daycare (no really, we don't want to leave), we know that the time she has been in Camille's care has prepared her in ways that no other daycare can. Camille is reliable and informative. She has taken all measures necessary to provide a safe and clean environment during the pandemic. She also provides an educational and loving atmosphere. I contribute so much of our daughter's growth, especially in terms of manners and social skills to her time spent in Camille's care. We are busy parents and we have always felt safe and secure knowing our child is cared for and learning amongst a small group of children in her age range. Anyone would be as blessed as us to have their child cared for by Camille.

We have been with Camille's childcare for over 4 months now. My husband and I were both nervous about our daughter attending daycare but from our initial meeting with Camille we knew we could trust our daughter with her. Her home is very welcoming and clean. The daily update she provides helps us not miss anything with our daughter's life. Camille has been so great with our daughter and our daughter always has a smile on her face when she sees Camille.

My wife and I have been with Camille's Childcare for 9 months. Camille was a life saver for us as our original service moved away. from the beginning we felt like we could trust her with our daughter. Her caring and warm personality makes dropping off our daughter every morning that much easier. She gives daily updates on what the children did/ate that day, which makes us feel like we aren't missing out on Emma's life. Her home is safe and inviting to all those who enter.

I knew this was the place for our Emma when she would jump out of my arms and reach for Camille when I dropped her off. There is no way to fully describe how lucky we are to have her in our lives.

A copy of my wife's Facebook post:

A huge thank you to Camille Petitt Johnson.

As we prepare for Evelyn's first few days of preschool I cannot help but reflect on the first time Mark Becker and I handed our sweet girl to you at 6 weeks old, just a little over 3 years ago.

Thank you for all that you've given Evelyn. Things you've directly taught her and indirctly through your daily Christian example. She has so much joy when she sees you (and your entire fantastic family). You've provided days filled with things to explore, toys to play, friends, laughter, fun. Because of you she has a love to clean, the best sleep schedule ever and the most gentle methods of redirecting her little brother.

Thank you for every hug and cuddle you gave, diaper you changed, meal you fed, tear you wiped, giggle you started, dance you encouraged, book you read, friendships you fostered. The list goes on and on.

Thank you for providing the greatest gift, love.

Find Camille has really been a blessing to our family. Being first time parents we wanted to make sure our child would be safe and well taken care of and we know we made the best choice by choosing Camille. Camille provides a safe and fun environment for our daughter and we highly recommend her for her services. So happy we found Camille!

Camille has been our home daycare provider from 6 weeks! We found her on the DCFS list of licensed daycares and visited months before our little lady was born, now we've been with her for over a year. When we went to visit it was clear that she took great pride in the high quality care that she provides. Her home is clean and organized and she showed us around without hesitation. Her space is bright and open and she has a great variety of age appropriate toys that she rotates based on development.
Camille is an absolute professional. She has raised 8 children of her own and has experience with what is seemingly everything; this has been such an asset to us as new parents. She observes physical and developmental changes, gives suggestions on products and shares in the excitement when your child does something new. She also sends home an end of day summary that keeps you in-the-know.
She recognizes every child as an individual and all parenting styles as unique so her first priority is to do what you have requested for your child. Our child was breastfed, Camille made my daughter's transition to a bottle smooth and easy and is well versed in how to handle expressed milk.
Over the warm weather months she loves to take the children in the backyard to play or on walks around the neighborhood. She plays music for the children during the day and doesn't keep a television on while the children are awake.
I attribute my daughter's fantastic sleep schedule on Camille's diligence to provide regular naps, in a bed, in a calm space of her own. As a member of the National Food Program, Camille provides my daughter with meals that are balanced, nutritious and diverse. Camille teaches songs and even basic sign language!
I clearly could go on and on about the fantastic care we have found in Camille and her home.

I can't say enough about our positive experience with Camille. My daughter started there when I returned to work at three and a half months. She experienced seperation anxiety very early, to the point where I was unsure if she would adjust to any sitter. Camille was very reassuring and patient, and was even getting smiles by the end of the first week. Now my daughter's face lights up when she sees Camille, and is truly happy to spend her days there.

I toured several daycares, both centers and in home, and my husband and I both agreed after our first meeting with Camille, she was the right fit for our family. We love having our daughter in a warm home environment, but with the educational benefits of Camille's experience. We have found Camille's Childcare to be the best of both worlds, and our daughter is thriving there. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Camille has been caring for our 15-month-old daughter, Olivia, for the past seven months, and we are continuously impressed with Camille's quality of care, professionalism and genuine warmth. We've been beyond happy with the loving care she has provided our daughter, and know that Olivia's confidence, development and bubbly personality are a testament to Camille's care.

Having previously been cared for in a traditional daycare center, we immediately saw a difference when we made the decision to move Olivia to Camille's Childcare. The individualized attention, patience, and loving care that Olivia receives from the moment she arrives at Camille's means so much to us, and seeing her smile as soon as she sees Camille provides a lot of comfort to us as parents. We trust Camille wholeheartedly, and know that Olivia is in great hands every day.

We also appreciate the open communication we have with Camille about Olivia's care. She keeps us up-to-date on all of our daughter's activities and development, and we appreciate the daily reports we receive that track her eating, activities and especially, fun notes about what she enjoyed during the day. Camille's commitment to the well-being of the children she cares for is obvious, and is priceless to us as parents.

We consider ourselves very lucky to have Camille in our lives, and she truly makes Olivia feel at home in her care. We highly recommend Camille's Childcare to anyone looking for a warm, comforting environment for their children.

Camille J. has been the home daycare provider for our daughter for the past eight months. From our initial meeting with Camille, we felt completely comfortable entrusting our child in her care. Over the past months, that feeling has been more than validated.

Our search for the perfect care provider for our daughter was extensive and included both home daycare providers and established day care companies. At no point did we ever feel as comfortable as we did with Camille. Her warm and welcoming home and family made us confident that our daughter would receive the absolute best care possible with Camille.

To refer to the care provided for our daughter by Camille as exceptional is an understatement. Camille's dedicated and loving care for our daughter shines through on the giant smile shown on our daughter's face anytime we pick her up from Camille's home. The detailed paper reports that come home with our daughter everyday keep my wife and I completely informed as to the events of her day and the progress she is making. Camille provides a wonderful and fun environment filled with song, play, and learning that contributes to and encourages our daughter's friendly and happy demeanor.

We would recommend Camille and her daycare services to anyone we know as can truly attest she has already provided amazing care for the most important person in our lives.

Camille is AMAZING! She was taking care of our daughter for about 6 months. I felt absolutely comfortable leaving my child with her and our daughter loves her and her family. The ONLY reason we don't have our daughter there right now is because my work schedule has gotten crazy. I have changing hours that vary between 6 am and 11pm and it is just easier to have our kids at our house, and luckily we have family who could help out. I would HIGHLY recommend Camille to anyone looking for a patient, kind, responsible and absolutely amazing caregiver for their child(ren)!

Camille has been providing care for my amazing daughter since she was 16 months old. Having had a live-in Nanny initially we took great care in selecting the right environment for her to transition into once our Nanny moved back to her hometown.

Camille's daycare provides a very safe, calm and nurturing environment filled with lots of opportunity to learn. Each day is structured to include story time, physical/active play, music/singing/dancing and time for free play too. From a socialization perspective, My daughter's experience has been invaluable as she has been afforded the opportunity to interact across multiple age groups within the context of a loving family environment.

As we planned our transition to care "outside the home" , it was important for me as "the Mom" to have the ability, to partner with my daycare provider to tweak things as her needs evolved and changed. I have that ability with Camille as several times we have chatted on her, her personality and given her unique self best approach to care. Also, having one consistent caregiver for my daughter to develop a "real" relationship with and bond was important to our family as I place a lot of importance on the role this plays in her development.

Lastly and personally, as a first time Mom, Camille has also been a great sounding board and trusted source for "second opinions" as I navigate her new phases and the anxiety it brings. Having someone I implicitly trust gives me great peace while I have to be at work each day.

Obviously I feel strongly in recommending Camille's services to your family. Feel free to call me anytime if you have any questions or just want to speak live.
Good luck in your search!
