There are not enough stars or kind words to say about Jackie. I have a 4.5 year old son who started at Jackie's at 11 months old and a 2.5 year old daughter who has been at Jackie's since she was 3 months old. We are so incredibly blessed to have found Jackie. Prior to starting at Jackie's, my son spent a short time in a daycare center and, after a rough experience, we knew that environment wasn't right for our family. After a pretty exhaustive search of home daycare in the area, we were lucky to find Jackie. My kids have grown and learned so much, educationally, emotionally and socially, thanks to the time they've spent with her. As a former kindergarten teacher, all the creativity, care and learning methods she brings to everyday activities, just can't be matched. Three of Jackie's (many) positive attributes that I found incredibly important when looking for childcare are patience, caring and dependability. My husband and I routinely refer to her as "Saint Jackie." I've never met another human being with as much patience as her...truly! Her big heart and the level of love and care she gives each child truly makes her house an extension of our home. Lastly, Jackie is incredibly reliable and dependable. In the 3.5 years we've been with Jackie, I can't recall a single time she's been closed for a sick day. She always gives notice for days she'll be closed (which are too few and far between, if you ask me!) so we've never had issues arranging backup care.

I know finding the right childcare for your children is one of the most stressful parts of early parenting. Jackie will put your mind at ease and your kid(s) will quickly settle in. It's truly a family at her house and the friendships my children have made with other daycare families, are stronger bonds than any others!

Our family has been attending Jackie's Learn N' Play Daycare for almost 4 years now. Jackie is one of the most kind, caring and patient people I've ever known - she is truly one of a kind and we are so blessed and thankful to be part of her daycare family. Our daughters love Miss Jackie, and they have so much fun learning and playing with their friends each day. Knowing that our children are genuinely loved and cared for while we're working brings us joy and peace of mind. Jackie's Learn N' Play Daycare is the perfect fit for our family and we wouldn't have it any other way!

When my husband and I started to look at in-home daycares, a nurturing, positive and healthy environment was at the top of our list. We were so blessed to have found that in Jackie's home and all of the other amazing opportunities she provided our children with over the years was such a bonus. Jackie is one of the most warm and kind individuals I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. Even before getting out of the car to drop off the kids each morning, and especially during the dark, cold days of winter, Jackie keeps a bright spotlight shining on her home year-round - a constant reminder of the warmth and smiles she always greeted us with once we entered her home.

Two of my children were lucky enough to start off as infants with Jackie when I returned to work after maternity leave. Breastfeeding was important to me and Jackie was wonderful in helping me feed my children the way I wanted to feed them. Once I made the transition to work from home I was also able to go over to her house each day to breastfeed with my youngest, which helped me to reach my goal of breastfeeding for a full year. As the kids grew and were able to eat solids, Jackie provided fresh fruits and steamed vegetables as a part of her daily menu, which made me happy to know they were getting nutritious foods at lunch and snack-time.

It was truly "learn and play" at Jackie's. When the kids were old enough to participate in her letter of the week table time activities, they would come home each day with a fun project to share with us. Their daily table time helped them gain skills with using scissors, coloring, creativity and more. Jackie also values the importance of outdoor play upon a child's development. During good weather, Jackie took the kids on daily walks to play at the park, held water days out on her patio and would take the children on field trips during the summer months to nature centers, splash pads, farms, parks, gardens, zoos, and libraries. Everyone from the babies on up to the bigger kids had so much fun, and I loved getting pictures of the kids enjoying all of these fun activities!

There is really so much more I could share about our experience with Jackie. The stress that I know I felt and I'm sure most full-time working parents feel in finding the absolute best care for your children is great, but with Jackie we felt genuine comfort in her ability to provide for our children. Helping children grow is one of the most important contributions to our world and we couldn't be more pleased knowing our children were under her wonderful care.

Where do I begin? Jackie is fantastic! I have 2 young children that went to Jackies daycare for 1 year. They would still be going to her daycare but do to changes with my work, we will no longer need child care.
Jackie not only followed a wonderful school curriculum with the children, she treated them like they were her own. Every morning my girls couldn't wait to see her! My oldest daughter has a hard time adjusting so seeing how well she took to jackie, we knew we made the right decision.
This summer, she took them on field trips weekly, splash pad, nature center and they even were involved in a library class! The kids loved it.
This was the best decision we could have made!
Jackie is a wonderful provider, I can not praise her enough!!
