I found Cathy from another Care.com reviewer and would have to say, I'm glad I called her up. I too go about 20 minutes out of my way to drop my son off at her daycare and can say it is completely worth it.

First Friends Child Care is simply the best! My son went to First Friends from the time he was 6 month old until he went to Pre-K (4 years). While he was there he learned early academics (letters, numbers, letter sounds, early reading, etc), but more importantly, he learned social skills, manners, imagination, creativity, and developed a sense of adventure! Cathy teaches children through play in a safe family/home atmosphere. Now, when Ty has a day off from school he begs to go to Cathy's house! That says it all!

The moment we found out we were expecting again, I contacted Cathy (First Friends) to reserve our spot for our new addition! We drive in the opposite direction from work, just so that our daughter can have the same amazing early childhood experiences as our son. We wouldn't trust anyone else with our children the way we trust Cathy. It is the best feeling being able to drop my child off at daycare and be able to do my job without worrying, knowing my child is safe and having fun. We love Cathy and First Friends Child Care! I would give First Friends 10 stars if that was an option!
