My daughter has been going to Kelly's day care for 2.5 months and she likes it there. My daughter flourishes in her speaking and becomes more independent under Kelly and her team's care and nurture. Kelly also organized a very fun Halloween event for the kids. I can see that our daughter loves it there.

We feel so lucky to have found Ms. Kelly! When I had to go back to the office, I contacted her. Ms. Kelly is clear and direct in her communication, which I very much appreciated. We arranged an at-home visit before my four-year old daughter started her program. My daughter cried when it was time to go and didn't want to leave! It was a great sign and she continues to look forward to going to Ms. Kelly's every day, even after two months.

Ms. Kelly clearly loves children and her job. Over the summer, she planned many fun activities for the kids including a fun and educational bird show. She has themes (like transportation) that she covered every week and her assistant (who was once a child in her daycare) even comes up with creative activities and snacks to go with the themes. The kids get outside for regular activity, and they learn good hygiene and manners.

Ms. Kelly even has a preschool curriculum that she covers Monday-Friday for the school year. There is a monthly calendar we receive before the month begins. I appreciate knowing the concepts they are covering, so we can try to reinforce them at home. Before I met Ms. Kelly, I really wanted my daughter to start a traditional preschool (since COVID delayed our initial preschool start). However, to my delight, Kelly's program is providing the enrichment of a preschool with the extended care of a home daycare so both my husband and I can work without worrying. Ms. Kelly is experienced and it shows. She has techniques to help them hold pencils, helps them learn how to use scissors, and has them work on gluing (all necessary for kindergarten). My daughter never really colored much before (as she preferring painting), but she is bringing home all kinds of creative artwork weekly. I can tell her fine motor skills are improving. My daughter is learning socialization skills but in a small environment where I feel she is safe. And she's even learning sign language!

We feel so fortunate to have found Ms. Kelly.

We are so lucky to have found Ms. Kelly! We toured several daycare/preschools both private (in home) and bigger facilities when we started looking for a daycare for our 2 year old Daughter. Our Daughter has been sheltered due to Covid and only felt comfortable around her Dad and I. It was very important for us to see how our Daughter felt during these tours and also the interaction between our Daughter and whoever would be spending almost all day with her. Ms. Kelly was the only person that truly made our tour all about our Daughter. She wasn't trying to sell us the facility or to convince us to go with her. She was actually interacting with our Daughter and made us feel so comfortable ourselves. We all had a genuine time/conversation. Ms. Kelly is full of positive energy and uses the best method with children to discipline and shows them so much love! It has been over 2 months now that our Daughter started going to 'school' and she absolutely loves it and she adores Ms. Kelly! When we pick her up she's so happy, and tells us all about her day in her language of course! Ms. Kelly has a great schedule/routine for the kids and our Daughter still takes naps at school. She goes far and beyond to keep the kids entertained and teaches them new things all the time. She always has a fun activity for the kids or she'll have exciting visitors. For example, she invited Happy Birds for entertainment and went invited the parents if they could join. These are all little things that matter so much and are moments for kids that they keep talking about when they come home. I can go on and on about Ms. Kelly but I'll stop here. :)

Our 3 and 4 year old kids have been at Kelly's for about 2 months and they absolutely love it! My daughter always talks about Miss Kelly's house and how excited she is to see all of her friends. Kelly's daycare has truly exceeded all of my expectations - she provides daily photos via a private FB group for parents only, she works with the kids in preschool material, she takes them outside on walks. Really, above and beyond. Thank you Kelly and team for all of the work you are doing with our kids! They love you and their friends at "school" so much :)

Our 7 month old has been at Kelly's for one month now, and we could not be more happy with our experience. She takes extra care to make sure that her home and all toys are disinfected and cleaned on a regular basis and enforces a strict sick policy to ensure that any germs a child has does not spread to others. Kelly is very loving and provides great structure for all of the children in her care. It warms my heart knowing that we leave our daughter each day with someone who genuinely loves her and someone who she loves as well!

We started taking our daughter to Kelly when she was only 3 months old and we are so happy with the care she is provided. Having to go back to work and find daycare was a daunting task but the second I met Kelly, my mind was put at ease. Kelly runs a very clean and organized daycare in her warm and inviting home. The transition was very smooth and to this day my daughter is always happy to see Kelly and has been thriving there for 5 months. I trust that she is in good hands and appreciate that Kelly is very communicative with me about how she is doing. Overall, I am grateful for the bond she has made with my daughter and genuinely cares for her.

We could not be happier than we are with Kelly and her crew. She currently takes care of our 3 year old son and 6 month old daughter. We are always confident that she is giving them the best care because we are constantly communicating and working together with their growth and development. Kelly has become family, and no better person to leave you children with than family.
Our three year old was having behavioral issues at his previous preschool. We believe that due to the immense size and lack of structure of his previous location, he was getting lost in the shuffle. In searching for care for our daughter, we found Kelly who also happened to have a preschool spot available so we moved them both. Kelly has very clear boundaries and rules along with the loving and structured environment we were looking for and his behavior has improved ten-fold.
Our daughter was one of those kids who struggled transitioning to the bottle once it was time for Mommy to go back to work. Kelly and her girls went above and beyond with more patience than any human should have and endured three weeks of getting her transitioned and we will always be forever grateful for not giving up on her.

We recently moved to California and immediately began the search for a warm, kind, safe place for our two daughters (2yo, 4yo). After reviewing 10+ facilities, we finally found Kelly!
Kelly and her staff are extremely professional, nice and loving to our children. There has never been any issues. Kelly nurtures our kids while we are at work and teaches them daily lessons. They get to run and play as well and be kids! I can emphasize enough, the dedication Kelly has to the entire family. She is the best!

I love Kelly and her team!! I was a mess trying to find first time child care and the minute I walked into Kelly's house, I knew we had found the right place. She and her team are wonderful and they love my son. He is always happy to see Kelly in the morning at drop off and is having a blast when I get him in the afternoon. One of my favorite things about Kelly is that she sets very clear boundaries for the kids and sticks to them. Having my son here has given me great piece of mind while I'm at work. We love Kelly's Kids!!

We are first time parents, and had been relying on the grandparents to care for our infant daughter, but unfortunately, doing so on a full time basis proved to be too much for our older parents. After extensive research, we finally decided to proceed with Kelly's Kids Daycare; it provided the more intimate home environment to which our daughter was accustomed, as well as the structure and exposure to other children which we wanted for her to have, without the sterility and institutionality of other facilities.

It took a few weeks for our little one to adjust to being in a new place and with new people - and seeing her upset was probably more difficult for us than for her. Once she had adjusted though, it was easy to see how much she enjoys being with Kelly and the other children. At barely 14 months old, she is learning and growing every day, but we have no doubt that under Kelly's care, she is developing all the more. In fact, our pediatrician commented that her verbal skills are advanced for her age! She is also learning sign language, participating in arts and crafts, and absorbing all those life lessons - playing with others, sharing, friendliness and kindness, etc.

Our daughter has been with Kelly for about 3 months now, and we are so grateful that Kelly has become a part of her world. Kelly keeps us apprised on what she's learning and doing, how she's eating, drinking, napping, and her moods, and has even alerted us to when our baby may be coming down with something, which we very much appreciate as first time parents! Kelly also keeps us informed when she herself is not feeling well or when other children have not been well, so that we have the opportunity to keep our own little one out of daycare, and know to be on the lookout for any symptoms. In our interaction with Kelly at drop off and pick up times, we can see that Kelly truly cares for each of the children in her care, their families, and her own staff and family. We wholeheartedly recommend Kelly's Kids Daycare!

Peace of mind is how I would describe Kelly's daycare . As a first time parent it was difficult leaving my son with someone other than family so we took our time and searched different options . Our first visit we knew it was the right place. It felt nurturing , kids looked happy and most of all Kelly was warm and experienced . It's been over 6 months and we are still happy, our son comes home singing new songs so we can tell he is learning and having fun.

It was an excellent day care for my 4 year old daughter currently. We tried at a preschool before and we were not happy. its more than an year she is going there. Affordable, we can use her details for emergency, she is also flexible with the timings and she is ok to pick and drop at school.

Our son started at Kelly's when he was 11 month old. We looked at various places in the area, but we liked Kelly from the first moment on, because she just seemed genuine, real, and we felt she would share similar values on how our son should grow up. During the last 13 months we slowly increased the days and he was attending to 5 full days in the end. We just recently moved 400 miles to Southern California and I honestly wish would could have packed Kelly and her staff as well.
Our son loved to go there. The group of kids is diverse, ranges from a few month old to elementary school kids, and it felt like he had siblings. The kids a most certainly not just "numbers" like sometimes in a large facility. Kelly and her staff know each one of them, understand their little personalities, differences and they truly care about them. We are first time parents with our own families far away (I am from Germany, wife from SoCal), so Kelly's advice and years of experience was really helpful for us. I once had a small car accident just before I picked up my son. It was a bit nerve racking. She immediately recognized sth. is wrong and invited me to stay, make my phone calls and calm down, while she would look after my son. I don't think you will find many places where this would be the case. You become part of the family. I always felt the kids get the right amount of freedom to explore their personalities and spirits, but also the right amount of direction and values.
I personally will miss Kelly, her daycare, staff and the other kids and highly recommend her. If we would still life in Dublin, our son would most definitely still be there.

Kelly and her team are hands down the best! I was a wreck thinking about going back to work and having a newborn, and when I saw that Kelly had openings, I instantly felt relief. She is attentive & loves your child like they are her own. My baby (who is a little over 1 now) has developed & learned so many things. They keep the kids active, on schedule, which makes for keeping a nice routine at home. If you want a place that is safe as well as your children to get the attention they need & deserve, this is your place!

As a single mother in a new city, Ms. Kelly was a God send. She took care of my girls for 4 years and I owe it to her that my girls learned manners, right from wrong, respect, and how to get along with little kids because of her.

It is obvious Ms. Kelly loves her job, and treats the kids as her own. She and her staff give lots of love and care to the kids. She also teaches them life lessons. During the summer, they not only have summer academic lessons, but she takes them on field trips, have lovely walks, enjoy playing outdoors, and has them do community service too!

Ms. Kelly goes above and beyond when the kids are in her care. My daughters were with her for 4 years, and let me tell you, she has saved me countless times, picking up the kids or dropping them off for me when my work schedule does not allow me to pick up/drop the kids to school and even transported them to their camps!

She also makes sure she checks in with me regarding the girls and gives me full reports when need be. When my girls have conflict in her care, she has them sit down and talk it out, often teaching them valuable lessons.

She has them do homework so that when I pick up the kids, I actually have time to spend with the kids instead of having them do homework.

Ms. Kelly has a wonderful way of creating structure and set expectations/rules so the kids know how to behave in class. I've learned a lot from her listening to what the kids say about Ms. Kelly. One thing I learned is when she is talking to someone and the child wants to ask something, the child places his/her hand on her hip. She acknowledges them as they wait for her to complete the sentence. Then, she gives them her full attention. The kids do that with me now instead of they used to do: say Mom 100x and interrupt!

My kids are older now, so they will be going to academic enrichment after school. But, if I had a choice, I would have them stay with her after school throughout their school career. She is more than a daycare provider; she is family to us. We miss her tremendously.

I had a bad experience with a daycare before I found Kelly...Kelly really made myself, my son, and my husband feel comfortable in her home. My son loves it there and so do we. Childcare is her calling and she does a fantastic job at it. I adore the art work and little field trips they do. I love that she gets the kids out of the house as well with walks and playing outdoors, instead for being in the house the whole day. Kelly has become part of our family. I would highly recommend her to take care of your loved ones.

It can be uneasy finding someone to watch your child; but Kelly made my husband and I feel at ease. She is a wonderful, competent and loving child care provider and takes excellent care of our son. She always has fun activities, and our sons development is blossoming. Child care is defiantly her passion, and it shows. She has a heart of gold when it comes to the children in her care. In a short amount of time, she became a part of our family, and we are considered lucky to have found her. We love Kelly and we would highly recommend her.

Awesome....Kelly is not only a wonderful person but a true child lover. She made my boys feel right at home even before we decided to stay with her. My husband absolutely adores her and I am excited to have my children learning from such a wonderful spirit. Here's to the beginning of a beautiful new family member.

Kelly is amazing. She loves what she does and it showed in how happy and excited the kids are to be there. My children always want to go back and are sad when its time to go home. I am so happy to have found Kelly.

I've worked for Kelly and I loved the family atmosphere of her daycare. I also loved her close relationship she has with each of her daycare families. You can feel her love for the kids in the air.. I highly recommend her daycare to everyone.
