My daughter attends here and it is lovely. The kids are seamlessly brought into the family and I feel good leaving my 18mo old when I know she's there.

Karyn has been watching all three of my kids since infancy (they are now 7, 6 and 3). We first met her when I was pregnant with my son Brett, now 7, and what a blessing she has been to our family. In fact, she and her husband are my daughter's Godparents. We love Karyn and her whole family--and importantly, my children love her. It is like having a second family. She is creative and thoughtful in her approach to childcare, and I trust her implicitly. She is a good person...trustworthy and caring.

Both of my children have been going to Karyn's since they were 8 weeks old and are now 7 and 4. My kids love this family and truly feel they are part of it. Karyn is very creative and crafty and I love seeing the art projects they do or hearing about the science experiments they conducted. More importantly, Karyn is loving and nurturing and provides an environment in which the children feel comfortable and want to keep coming to day after day. Her patient and calm demeanor is beyond compare and can put any child at ease. I am truly fortunate to have found Karyn and her family as part of my "village" in raising my children.

My boys (6 and 5) love going to Karyn's house, and they have a lot of fun. They also learn a lot, and are always coming home with new things to share and show. She treats every child as her own, including baking and decorating individual birthday cakes when birthdays roll around! The location is very convenient for us, being right around the corner.

Thank you Vanessa, having your boys in my care has been an adventure that I wouldn't trade. And yes, we certainly do love to eat cake.

I love this family I was fortunate to find Karyn when I newly moved into area 11 years ago and I no longer need day care, my children are growing and moving but we still keep in contact and enjoy watching the children grow! Karyn treats every child like they are her own and gives loving quality care.

Cheryl - Thank you and so glad that you found us too. I have loved being a part of your family and watching your children grow. And I can't believe that our babies are starting middle school this year. Where has the time gone?
