The set up of the daycare is nice and the care providers are great people. However, if your children do not quickly conform to their accustomed schedule with their current children in care, they will drop you... via text message.

Our little girl has been with Doodlebugs since July 2014. When our previous childcare provider relocated out of state, we were sure that it would be a nightmare to find someone to replace her. We couldn't have been more wrong! Mary and her assistant Kayla are delight to work with. Our minds were put at ease from our first conversation. Mary had us come by one afternoon to let us and our little girl get to know her, Kayla, and the kids that were in her care. We were so impressed with the surroundings. The room that the kids spend most of their time in is filled with interactive, age appropriate toys, books and walls of arts and crafts. And her fenced-in outdoor area has a variety of outdoor kids' toys. It is easy to see that the kids at Doodlebugs are not just loved, but also encouraged to be creative and learn while having fun and enjoying each other. During our first few weeks, Mary would text us as soon as our little girl would calm down after she was dropped off, but once she became more comfortable, the texts we received were no longer about her calming down, but pictures instead of her playing dress-up or playing with the other kids. She is so happy to be at Miss Mary's!! As a first time parent, it's always difficult to entrust the most important little person in your life to anyone, but leaving her with Mary and Kayla feels more like we're leaving her with family than just a daycare provider. Even her own kids love our little girl and look forward to seeing her. We trust Mary and Kayla completely and know that our little one is safe and well cared for when she's with them. I would recommend Doodlebugs to anyone!!

Mary is wonderful! My daughter has been going to her since she was 6 weeks old, she is now 4 months, and every time I go to pick her up, she is all smiles and laughter. I know that she enjoys her time with Mary, and it's comforting to know that she is in such great hands. Mary sends me pictures of my baby when I miss her, lets me know how much she has eaten through out the day, how much she has slept, and she works wonderfully with our family! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for quality childcare in a loving and fun environment!

We LOVE Mary! Our 7 month old baby girl has been going twice a week for over a month now and we couldn't be happier. After interviewing a few different care givers, Mary was the perfect fit for us. She's like sending the baby to a family member rather that a sitter. When I drop her off in the morning she is happy and willing to go to her without any complaints. Its a very comfortable environment for the baby and you can tell she has so much fun during the day. Being a working mother, it is nice to have somewhere to bring the baby where I feel she will be taken care of just the same as if I were home with her myself. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

My son goes to Ms. Mary's house twice a week. He loves her and her wonderful children. The playtime does wonders for him. Ms. Mary is a super-mom. She feeds the children well-balanced foods, has a garden in the back and plenty of room to play! You can tell that she genuinely cares for the kids, and that she loves interacting and spending time with them. My son is always happy and tired when he comes home, which is great! I would definitely recommend Ms. Mary for anyone that needs childcare. I would highly recommend her for those who are concerned with the way their children eat, play and grow.
