We feel so luck to have found Ms. Kim! Our daughter started with her at 15 months. We were worried about her transitioning to care outside of our house, but she adjusted very well and quickly with the help of Ms. Kim's warm, welcoming, and confident style. Our daughter is now almost 2 and is excited every day to go to daycare to see her friends and Ms. Kim. She comes home with new projects, words and manners (saying "please" and "thank you") all the time. Ms. Kim has a great set up: she keeps the daycare very clean and tidy, and she has a GREAT outdoor play area with lots of great play options for all the kids. We were more impressed with Ms. Kim's set up than some of the larger/corporate daycares we visited. Kim is very warm and nurturing with the kids, while also maintaining order and helping the kids practice good manners. We are so appreciative of her intuitive and experienced care, you can tell she enjoys her work, she's great at it! It's very reassuring as a parent to feel our daughter's life is more enriched (and she's having more fun) with her time at daycare than if she were at home full time with us. I would recommend Ms. Kim to any friend or family looking for care.

When we moved to the area, we worried about how our 2 yr old son would adjust to a new daycare environment. We feel very lucky to have found Ms. Kim's daycare. You can tell Kim has truly invested in her daycare - the space itself is separate from the main house and is colorful, clean, and filled with natural light and a variety of stimulating toys and play areas. The backyard has a great playground area as well, and - weather permitting - the kids are outside every day playing and exploring. We've appreciated the mix of structure and free time for the kids. Our son is always coming home with art projects, talking about his friends from daycare, or singing the new songs he's learned during circle time. In terms of responsiveness, Kim provides updates regularly, is extremely reliable, and is very communicative, which has been so helpful especially during Covid times. Most importantly, she clearly loves what she does and has so much love and energy when it comes to taking care of children. We have an infant son who will be needing daycare soon, and I feel so reassured knowing he'll be in Ms. Kim's care.

Mother Goose is a wonderful place! I send both of my children (3.5 and 1.5 years old) here. They run inside the door every day and never want to leave at the end of the day. The children get fresh air almost every day (weather permitting) and during Covid, it couldn't be more important. I never worry while I am at work because my kids are in a safe, loving and nurturing environment and enjoy going to school. And I couldn't be happier, as she cares for each child like they are her own. I feel so lucky to have found Mother Goose daycare, it's more than just an incredible daycare program, it is our second family. I highly recommend this daycare.

We're so grateful to have found Mrs. Kim and our family just loves her. Kim has a way with the children and it's incredible to watch. The structure she provides is the perfect balance between learning and fun. She provides educational games and crafts/projects, circle time, outdoor play, and more. Seeing how our son lights up each day when he sees her and his friends, and how he never wants to leave is a true testament. A bonus is when he tells us how much he loves school, Mrs Kim and his friends. It's truly a one of a kind daycare and we could not be any happier.

Miss Kim is amazing. We feel beyond fortunate to have found her via When we moved back to CT I wanted to go back to work but was so worried about finding the right care for our son. The moment we stepped foot into Mother Goose we knew we'd found our son's home away from home. He has LOVED going to Miss Kim's from day 1. She balances their days with crafts, circle time, outside play and many other great activities. My son literally sprints into her arms every morning to give her a hug. She is a wonderful care giver to every child she has -- assisting with anything the parent needs/is concerned about from introducing new foods to potty training and everything in between. She's truly wonderful and we feel so comfortable and reassured knowing that our son is with her when he is not with us. Not to mention she's become a great friend to my husband and I! We cannot recommend her highly enough!

We have taken our 1 year old daughter to Mother Goose Daycare since May 2017. I cannot emphasize enough how fortunate we feel to have Kim as our daycare provider! She is so kind and nurturing to our daughter and is very flexible in scheduling needs. Communication is excellent-Kim provides daily reports of my daughter's activities. My child genuinely loves it-we have seen her grow leaps and bounds over the past several months and there is no doubt in our mind that Kim is a big part of that development! I would absolutely recommend Kim and Mother Goose Daycare for your childcare needs!

I have had my daughter enrolled here for 5 months and it has been a great experience for our family. Kim Chariott is a kind, patient, loving caregiver who gives my daughter the attention she requires with bottle feeding. Kim will follow the schedule that I request for my daughter and at the same time is honest with me. I have not only found a great daycare for my daughter but a loving and nurturing place for my child to grow and learn. I highly recommend this daycare.
The best decision I ever made early on was choosing Kim Chariott as the primary caregiver for my son! Truly, she is the best! She loves all of the children in her care and provides such a warm, structured, consistent and kind environment for children of all ages to learn and grow. While my son gained another caregiver whom he absolutely adores, I gained a mentor and friend who showered me with support and advice on my journey through motherhood. We worked as a team, and my son benefitted from that every step of the way. I am forever grateful for the positive impact Kim has had on our family and would recommend her very highly!

I have know the owner of this childcare for over 10 years. She has cared for all three of my children in such a kind and loving way ....going out of her way to help out on many occasions. My family considers Kim an extension of our family because that is how she treats you. She encourages the kids play together with kindness and manners yet allows them freedom to feel as if they are on a playdate... which is how my kids felt every time they excitedly went her house. I would highly recommend this child care to anyone who asked.

Kim is second to none when it comes to childcare, organization & judgement. I joke with people that I feel more comfortable when my daughter is with Kim than myself! Her combined style of warmth and firmness works wonders. If you kid isn't eating well or sleeping well....just send them to Kim. Our time with Mother Goose Day Care added a dimension to our lives that I cherish.

Mother Goose Daycare is not your average childcare facility. Kim is very much a part of our family. We have three boys ages 5, 3 and 1. Our oldest child began with Kim when he was 10 months old and still requests to go to Miss Kim's on a daily basis. Our middle and youngest children currently go to Miss Kim's and beg to stay longer. Kim has gone above and beyond her role as a daycare provider and truly loves each child as if they are her own. Along with the loving environment, our two older boys were very well prepared for nursery school socially and developmentally. Our family does not live close by and Kim has provided emergency care (births, sickness etc) for our boys - she is one of the only people we completely trust with our children. Kim is a diamond in the rough.

This is an absolute amazing place! Trusting somebody else with your own child, is a difficult decision. Your mind will be so much at ease knowing your child or children are with Kim. Kids love going to Kim's Day Care. It is fun, interactive, they learn social skills, make their first friends, do little projects, get to play outside which is so important for the little ones. Kim goes above and beyond for the kids, and helps us moms more than any other day care. This is not your average Day Care, this is a wonderful place for kids and a piece of mind for us mommies!

We highly recommend Mother Goose Day Care. I brought my son to Kim's in home day care when he was just 13 weeks old and to a first time mother going back to work it was a difficult time but Kim provided the most loving, caring and safe environment I could ask for...she also was a great support system for me. Kim is a very important part of our family and continues to be. Kim is a long time resident of Westport and having raised 2 children here she is familiar with all things Westport and surrounding towns.

We highly recommend Mother Goose Day Care. Kim runs the most professional, loving and personal day care business in the area. She provides a fun - at home family atmosphere and it is wonderful to have someone close by who knows and understands our children. Having raised two children here, Kim knows all about the doctors, schools and activities of Westport. She is a great resource as well as a great personal support system. Both of my girls loved Mother Goose Daycare and Kim is still an important part of our family 10 years later!
