We just love Karen! We started in 2009 with our daughter and were lucky to get our new little one in this year. It is so nice to not have to worry that my kids are safe and loved every day!

Things I particularly love...
1. Karen has a helper, Kristi...having two adults there is awesome!
2. Monthly calendar with activities and different lesson plans
3. Guest teachers...story man, music and movement, french
4. GREAT communication...fast to reply to any question
5. Nice set up in lower level with kitchen and different play areas for kids
6. She TRULY loves my kids and really knows them and helps them to be good little people :-)

If you have the chance to send your child to Karen...do it!

I have had at least 1 child in Kren's care since 2004 and I can't imagine sending them anywhere else. Not only are my kids learning something new every day, I know that they are safe and loved.

Karen and Kristi are wonderful care takers. My boy Jerry loves going to Karen's house. Karen is really good at communicating with parents,too. She sent me photos and videos of my boy while I am away from him. When I worried about Jerry, Karen called me and told me how my boy did in her daycare. She is not only a good caregiver for my boy, but also a very good friend to our family.

My two children have been cared for by Karen and Kristi since 2008 and I can't sing their praises enough. Karen provides a rich environment full of toys, books and structured activities. She has great "guest teachers" who teach the kids French, music and movement, or just have them crack up with interactive storytelling. In the summer the kids spend a lot of time outdoors in active play. I have enjoyed seeing all the projects that my kids bring home and their reports of raising Painted Lady butterflies or growing plants from seed.

Karen provides a nutritious breakfast and lunch and shares the week's menu at the beginning of each week.

Karen is very popular and in-demand, and very much appreciated by all the parents- if you are lucky enough to get a spot for your child, don't hesitate!

Karen and ass't Kristi are wonderful 'second parents' to our little boys! We have had a child at Karen's since 2008. Lots of great activities, great kids, great setup. Karen has been very accommodating as we transition to pre-K and regular school as well. Bonus are kid-friendly pets.

Karen, and her helper Kristi, are amazing care takers of children. We have sent our daughters to this daycare since 2008. Every day the students are cared for, loved, and engaged in wonderful learning activities. We are so thankful to be able to send our children to this wonderful home every day!
