I'm so grateful to have found Ready, Set, Grow! Joanne and Johnna are the sweetest, kindest and most dedicated people. They have really become like family. My daughter has learned so much in such a nurturing and fun environment. She is so happy there! I can't recommend RSG enough!

I cannot put into words how wonderful Ready Set Grow as been for our daughter. Prior to RSG our daughter had been in another daycare since she was 12 weeks old that needed to close suddenly. I was a wreck with having to find a new daycare that I could trust with my daughter, who was now 2. We had little time to find a new facility, but I was determined to find the best place for her. We researched and visited countless daycares in the area but knew when we found RSG we found the right place for our daughter.
RSG is run by two sisters who love and care for all of the children like they are members of their own family. My mommy-guilt has lessened using RSG because my daughter is not SAFE and HAPPY, but having the time of her life. Johnna and Joanne arrange for so many fun activities like a weekly music class (with a visiting teacher) and fun activities such as a delivered pumpkin patch and petting zoo. If you visit their FB page you'll see all the amazing parties and activities they have planned.
Not only is this a fun and warm environment but it is CLEAN. Any parent of a child in school or daycare knows how many germ they are exposed to and how often they can get sick... that's not the case here. Our daughter had her "healthiest" year and I attribute that to how often and how throughly they clean.
There is not enough space to tell you all the amazing things they have done or how happy we are. I well up just thinking about what a wonderful setting this is and how grateful we are to them. I couldn't recommend them any more highly then I already do. This this by far the most amazing daycare in the area.

I had a very hard time finding a daycare that I felt comfortable with, but after meeting with Joanne and Johnna I felt like I had known them for years. They treat my son like he is one of their own and he talks about them all the time! My son has been going here for over a year and it is amazing how much he has learned. They do not only watch my son, but they are teaching him as well. He has made so many friends and loves going here every day. I highly recommend!

A part of me wants to be selfish and not tell anyone how lucky I am that I found Ready Set Grow, but that wouldn't be fair to Miss Joanne and Miss Johnna who run the daycare and all the mom's that are looking for a wonderful, safe and loving environment for their children.
I am a new mom of a beautiful baby boy. He is actually 3 months old today. I knew once my husband and I found out we were expecting I would have to return back to work, I just didn't realize how hard it was going to be. I found a daycare in Merrick (where I live) while still pregnant and thought it was going to be a great fit for us. Once our son was born I returned to the daycare one day with him and my feelings changed. I will not say which daycare it was, because I am sure a lot of people send their kids there with no problems, I just did not care for the infant room at all. It looked as if it was baby prison with 6 cribs lined up in a room with no windows and one teacher. This was not my idea of a loving environment for our son.

I was really nervous with only 2 weeks left until I had to return back to work. I signed up for with the intentions of finding a nanny. I still was not thrilled with the idea of having one woman who I do not know in my home with our son but I assumed that all daycare's were the same and this would be the best option. I happened to come across Joanne's profile and figured I would give the daycare atmosphere one more shot, They are located in East Meadow, which is not far from Merrick but already I was doubting the fact I was going to like the place and now I felt I was going out of my way each morning and afternoon, I should just continue to look for someone to come to my home. I spoke to Joanne over the phone, already having a great vibe I set an appt. to meet with her. I drove to her home, which was really convenient since it was right off the highway. She welcomed me into her house, which was beautiful clean, no pets, non smoking ( all very important to me)She brought me downstairs into her basement, which she had transformed into a child's dream come true. Toys for all ages, arts and crafts, books, puppet theater, play mat's etc. I could see how much love and hard work her and her sister had put into this daycare- I met her three lovely children, who were well mannered and so friendly- I could tell that Joanne was a great mom and I truly felt Jeremy was going to be in a great place. Her and her sister - were very professional and educated as well. Our son has been in the daycare now for 2 weeks, he is doing excellent, Joanne and Johnna have kept to my schedule and more importantly his schedule- I pick him up everyday and my son is smiling and happy- although he is only 3 months old, I know I would be able to tell if something was not right- Joanne and Johnna have opened up there home and dedicate everyday to helping working parents feel comfortable with going back to work. Joanne checks in with me daily- she sends me text messages of him throughout the day- I love the homey and personable feel I have with them. I know that our son is being taken care of but he is also being loved and they enjoy sharing everyday with him while he is there- That makes life so much easier for my husband and I- If you are a working mom and you are looking for someone to care for your child/children- consider ready set grow- it was one of the first great decisions I made as a mom!

I feel very blessed to have found Ready, Set, Grow. The experience we have had with them is nothing less than superb. Joanne and Johnna truly love all of the kids and are always coming up with great activities for the kids. They are both so personable and truly have pride and passion in what they do and the service they provide. They have transformed their home into a really great daycare with various play areas/stations for the kids. They make the activities very educational and my daughter genuinely has love for both of them. She loves going there every day and I have the peace of mind knowing that she is being cared for in a safe, clean and loving environment. I looked at almost every facility in the area and I didn't feel any of them were good enough for my daughter... they didn't even come close to the feeling I got after meeting Joanne and seeing her daycare. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is feeling that stress of finding a place for their child. Look no more :) I assure you that you will not be disappointed. My daughter has been there almost a year and I have NEVER had an issue
