Carla Gill has cared for my son for over three years, from the age of 3 months until 3.10. Our family has had a wonderful experience with her care. She provides a warm home environment that I am grateful my son has been able to spend his days in. Carla is very particular with each child's individual needs and gives them personalized attention. She has taken a vested interest in my son as a person, starting with helping him through sitting up and his first solids through potty training. As he has grown, Carla has worked with him on academic development such as colors, letters, shapes - and now actual reading. She even helped him learn his ABCs in French. He has thrived under her teaching and is well ahead in reading and numbers for his age. The children are able to have free play inside and outside in the good weather, so there is plenty of unstructured time as well. My son is now entering full day preschool and I'm very sad to leave Carousel Child Care as it has been such a positive part of his life.

I highly recommend Carla Gill's in-home child care center, Carousel Child Care. Carla has been taking care of my son since he was 4 months old. He has now been with her for over 2 years, and we couldn't be happier with the care he receives.

Carla is very loving, and treats the children in her care as if they were her own. Being a mother herself, she is also great for advice, and has so much knowledge from raising her own family. She is very accommodating to schedules, and flexible when we need her to be.

My son has grown so much in the time he has been going to Carla. He surprises us every day with things that he is learning, and is thriving in her care. Carla incorporates reading/book time, outdoor play, and works diligently with the children on the alphabet, numbers and counting. He truly loves his days with Carla, and gets the perfect balance of nurturing, learning, and play.

He will start preschool this fall, and Carla is making sure to prepare him now for his transition. We will all miss her, and will be sure to stay in touch!

Carla Gill watched my daughter for a year, from when she was age three and a half to age four and a half, until it was time for her to start preschool. We were so sad to leave Carousel! Carla taught my daughter lessons to prepare her for school while providing the most nurturing and attentive care I could have asked for, and mixed in a whole lot of fun, too. My daughter had never been to any daycare before going to Carla, and Carla made her feel safe and treated her like a member of the family. I truly believe that Carla loves what she does and it showed in the way that she cared for my daughter. She had my full trust and way always very honest and very fair; a truly good person through and through. My daughter had a smooth transition to preschool (thanks to Carla!), and even though she loves her current school and her teacher, she tells me often how much she misses Carla. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for loving, quality care for their children.

I am writing this letter on behalf of Carla Gill. Carla has taken care of our daughter Macie since she was three months old. She is now sixteen months old. I approached Carla for daycare after having a horrible experience with a previous provider. Not only was she warm and receptive but she immediately made me feel we had made the correct choice in hiring her to watch our daughter. Macie has developed a love for Carla that cannot be replaced. She thoroughly enjoys going to her home and cries when we leave. Carla has worked on flash cards, sensory items, and community integration with Macie. Carla takes Macie to the library and music therapy twice a month. I have full faith in Carla to provide the best care for my daughter including medical care. Carla has become a part of our family. She is in tune with Macie in her eating habits, bowel movements, sick symptoms and just everyday changes. Macie's vocabulary has expanded tremendously. Anything we ask of Carla she is willing to do. She is loving and available for that extra snuggle whenever needed. I cannot say enough positive things. Please feel free to contact me with any questions as I would recommend Carla Gill to anyone looking for a loving home environment for their child.

My almost 4-year old daughter has been under Carla's care for over a year and my 10 month old son has been under Carla's care for the last 7 months (since my return to work after maternity leave when he was 3 months old). During this time Carla has provided a safe, loving, nurturing and fun environment for both of my children.

As a mother herself, Carla treats my children as if they were her own. She's also been very adaptable and accommodating to help my husband and I with the adjustment to having two kids while both parents work!

My daughter always runs to see Carla at the start of the day and my son is always smiling from ear to ear when he sees Carla or hears her voice. At the end of the day my daughter goes on and on about the many things they did together and she looks forward to her time with Carla. I know that my children are happy and healthy in Carla's care and as a mom who works full time, I do not worry about them during the day.

My 2 1/2 year old twins have been in Carla's care for over a year. During that time Carla has fostered and encouraged both behavioral and educational development of my children. She is a great partner working towards developmental milestones. Just now she is helping with the transition to potty training and helping the kids to learn how to clean up after themselves, which is a huge help!

Carla is a very loving caregiver - I truly believe she cares for my children deeply. My kids are treated and feel part of her family and enjoy their time at daycare.

I've found Carla to be very flexible and accommodating - and always willing to help in order to make our lives a little easier.

Just yesterday when I dropped the kids off at her house, my son told me to go to work! And when I pick them up, they are never in a rush to leave. That always fills me with comfort and confidence that my kids are happy in her care. Delete
