To provide a safe, loving environment where children can grow and develop to their full potential, to work with parents, and to provide an environment where children can develop self-respect and positive self-image as well as offer a healthy social, emotional and rich curriculum.
At Growing Tots Family Childcare, I strongly believe that it is through play that children learn best. I feel it is my role to provide quality, interesting and stimulating material and equipment to facilitate this play. I offer materials that meet a range of developmental levels. This creates an environment for each child to grow and learn at his or her own rate, because each child is different and therefore grows and learns in his or her own unique way.

Nice home. Flexible for military. Good morals. Staff is nice.

I have to say that Ms Mio was more than patient with her answers and she was willing to spend as much time to make me at ease. She was so kind and understanding. My daughter has been going there since she was 3-months old. She just celebrated her 1yr birthday and we chose to celebrate it at the daycare facility where she would be surrounded by her friends and the loving people who care for her.
My daughter continues to thrive under Ms Mio's care as well as the care provided by her assistants who are very sweet with all the children. I'll continue to bring my daughter to this daycare facility because I want what's best for her and I think I've found it.
For Clair, I'm sorry you had such a terrible experience. I would just like to say that I am not a fake reviewer, and I know a couple of the other reviewers, as well. They aren't fake either. I'm a normal working mother who feels happy and comfortable leaving my child with Mio. And as for overcharging, there have been times when Mio refused my late fee checks because "I wasn't too late." She allows for commute time, not just work hours. Whatever we pay her, she earns every penny.
Everyday the kids are learning and having new experiences, and my child is no exception. We love Mio and Growing Tots, and if you don't believe me, just come and see my daughters face every time we walk in the door!
home daycare that just seems sub-par in comparison. My son has been going
to Ms. Mio for over a year now, and has enjoyed every single day of going
there. Since my husband and I are military, it is very important to me to
find a provider that is flexible, nurturing, and provides an atmosphere that
is comfortable for my son. Ms. Mio has far exceeded all of my criteria and
expectations in a care provider. I take comfort in the fact that she cares
for my child as if he were her own family member. It is unfortunate that my
husband and I are moving in a few short weeks. Ms. Mio has set the bar high
for my future expectations in child care for my son and future children.
Every Saturday and Sunday morning my son will ask "Am I going to Ms. Mio's
today" and when I reply "no" he expresses his disappointment. I love and
appreciate that she sends pictures over the phone and does crafts with the
kids, nearly on a daily basis, but mostly that she extends the love and care
to the kids' family members as well. Over holidays she does special crafts
with the kids for the parents. That is particularly warming to me.
Flexibility is very important to me as well. While my husband was deployed
and my somewhat unpredictable schedule it was very relieving to know that I
could rely on Ms. Mio if I were in a bind. Her two additional helpers are
very wonderful as well. I know they both take great care of my son and have
taught him so much. I cannot say enough great things about Ms. Mio and her
staff that provides such excellent care for my son. I certainly hope in our
future endeavors my husband and I are fortunate enough to find someone as
loving, caring and hospitable as Ms. Mio has been. I highly recommend her
for anyone looking for childcare.
I am currently an Active Duty single mother serving in the ARMY. I work long hours and at times weekends. I could always rely on having quality childcare for my children. Mrs. Mio was always flexible with my changing schedule and made sure the children were comfortable while I was away.
Mrs. Mio made it a priority to assist my son who is in the 3rd grade with school work and other school projects. She assisted him in maintaining good grades and emphasized the importance of afterschool work. In result my son succeeded and was tested for the Highly Gifted Program within his school district. I believe she played a key role in his success, because of her willingness to go above and beyond her responsibility as childcare provider. She truly cares for the children who attend her childcare and want them to be successful.
Mrs. Mio and my three year old daughter truly boned. My daughter will definitely miss the family she's grown to love at growing Tots. Mrs. Mio assisted my daughter with her growth and development daily. She can now recognize colors, shapes, the entire alphabet and animals. Her communication skills are wonderful. She speaks perfect English and she speaks complete sentences that make sense. Mrs. Mio assisted with her overall intellectual and social development.
I would recommend Growing Tots and Mrs. Mio to any family seeking reliable, safe and truly wonderful care. If I were not moving to another duty station my children would continue to attending for the years to come. She and her family will be truly missed. I can't thank them enough for all their support in helping ensure my children had a safe and comfortable home away from home. I can only hope I find someone similar to Mrs. Mio in the near future, although I know she's one of a kind.

I would highly recommend her to anyone who is concerned with making sure there children are being left with people who will treat them as family. I've experienced nothing less than dignity, respect and acceptance with a smile from all of her family. They are all very welcoming.
I am a single mom who works full time with varied shifts and it's like a breath of fresh air when she can be flexible and work with my hours. It means a lot to me.
I barley have any time when I get home to help with my boys homework and it's just been a huge relief when my boys said that it's done and either Mrs. Mio helped or her daughter Dee Dee did, whom also loves helping.
I could go on and on but I need to keep it short and to the point which is: that I feel so confident in leaving my boys in her care ever day because I know they will be treated like family and family matters most to me when it comes to my children.
Thank you for your time in reading this, and thank you Mrs. Mio you're a blessing to me

With her constant attention and life building games the children both flourished in the recognition of letters and colors and everyday speech. While there were always enough children there to play and work on social behavior, there were never too many to take away needed attention. Ever accommodating Mio was always flexible with our busy schedule which I am sure was not always easy. While it was hard and saddening to say goodbye, we are grateful for our time with the daycare and Mrs. Mio.
