Kamini and Play Pen staff offer the highest quality daycare services in a safe and nurturing environment. Our baby girl attended this daycare from age 5 months to 15 months (when we moved). From the beggining Kamini gave us warm feelings, which turned out to be spot on. Play Pen offers top notch facilities that allow the children to grow with the assistance of caring and knowlegable instructors. While the inside of the home is clean and adorable, the backyard is completely devoted to the daycare with beautiful landscaping, playground equipment and sandbox. Kamini's form of instruction to the kids was model behavior, which was helpful to us as new parents. This woman is truely gifted when it comes to children. Never once did we see any questionable behavior or tactics. She is positive and patient, treating each of the children as if they belonged to her. She tailored her care to our baby and our baby's needs. The daily progress sheets were always a comforting reminder as to the attention to detail and care that our baby recieved every day. With Play Pen you get the best of both worlds in terms of structure and professional staff but also the benefit of having a smaller group of kids that fosters more of a personal almost "family like" setting. Kamini is a diamond in the rough and we will miss her.

It's a wonderful feeling to drop your kids off in the morning and feel completely at ease knowing your children are in such wonderful and loving hands. We have two children, ages 1 and 4 and we couldn't be happier with the care they receive with Mrs. Kamini and her team. Our son, who is in Pre-K with Mrs. Kamini is learning to read and write before our very eyes. Each day he comes home excited to tell us about what he learned and eager to show us his school work in his backpack. He's so proud of the knowledge he is gaining and as parents, watching his growth is just pure magic. Reading, writing, math, science, social studies, art, music - he gets it all with Mrs. Kamini and he's ready and excited to practice even more at night. He s already fully prepared for Kindergarten and is growing more and more each day.

Our daughter who just turned one came to Mrs. Kamini's after being at home for her first 8 months. She took to Mrs. Kamini instantly. The entire transition was a breeze and she is thriving in her daily environment at Play Pen.

We feel so grateful to have found Mrs. Kamini. We love Mrs. Kamini, our children love her and there s no doubt she loves them. I would highly recommend Play Pen Montessori to anyone looking for a loving and flourishing learning environment for their children.

I can't say enough good things about Mrs. K and Play Pen Montessori. I have two children, ages 2 and 3, that attend the school. They have been there almost a year now. As any parent, it was a little overwhelming and scary looking for the proper care for our children when I went back to work. I had a visit at several different schools and when I went to Play Pen it just clicked and felt right. It also meant a lot to me that my dad, who retired from life-long career in education, gave two thumbs up for the school and highly approved of it.
Both my kids have grown so much since they have been there. There is an apparent difference in their social skills and their academic knowledge. My 3 year old knows her numbers, letters, and colors. They both bring home great educational arts and crafts projects that they are both very proud of. It is such a great feeling to hang them up when we get home and see how proud they are of their work.
The environment is very neat and clean with activities and toys in every area of the school. The covered backyard play area is quite something! It is a play area with tons of great toys and activities. It provides an an area for learning as well as physical activities.
To sum it up---- my daughter will wake up on Saturdays and ask to go to school : ) that is how much she loves it there. I would highly recommend Play Pen Montessori and we feel lucky to be a part of their family. I have really enjoyed our experience with the school, Mrs. K, her class room assistants, and even getting to know her husband and daughters.

My 2 year-old daughter has been under Kamini's care at Play Pen Montessori for nearly a year now. The process of finding daycare was very nerve-wracking, but my husband and I immediately felt this was the right fit for our child after our initial visit. The property is clean, organized, spacious, and full of activities for infants and toddlers. At Play Pen, my daughter gets plenty of social interaction, time to explore freely and play, as well as opportunities to learn academic skills. She already knows her colors, some shapes, and can count and recognize numbers to 10. As an elementary teacher, this makes me feel so proud! More importantly, I am confident that my daughter is in the right place because she is happy at drop-off and happy at pick-up. It is definitely a family atmosphere at Play Pen, and we feel lucky to be a part of it!

For the last 2 months, my son has been attending Play Pen Montessori and very much satisfied with it. Ms. K and her family are very welcoming, friendly, & caring. The facility is very clean, inviting and baby/children friendly. The place is full of colorful toys, not to mention, the backyard is full of fun-filled amenities for children. Ms. K is very flexible and very accommodating as well. I'm very happy and glad that I found Play Pen M and Ms. K. especially with the bad experience I had while shopping for daycare. I would recommend Play Pen Montessori and Ms. K to anyone. We love Play Pen Montessori, Ms. K and her lovely family. :)

Our son has been going to Play Pen Montessori for the past 2 months and we could not be happier!!
I could tell right away that he was happy here and loved Kamini (primary care provider).
I never have to worry that he is neglected or bored....as there are plenty of care team members and tons of toys and learning activities.
One of my favorite things about Play Pen is the open environment, there is a huge covered outdoor patio full of toys and learning activities which then opens up to an amazing backyard packed full of cars, slides, swings and a huge sand box.
Bottom line, we LOVE Play Pen and Kamini and feel so fortunate to have found it!!! I would recommend Play Pen to anyone.
