I have been looking for good childcare for our 3-year-old son for several months, but I was looking for a place that could provide structure, education, and small class sizes, so my son could get individualized care. Storybrook fits all of that and MORE!!!

I must begin by saying, I went for my initial tour of the school on a Friday after 7pm with the owner (Michelle). She waited for my shift to end and showed me all around the school. She answered all my questions/concerns. She spent a long time with me to assure I was comfortable with my decision. (She stayed with me so long the cleaning crew came while I was there)

My son is EXTREMELY active and I was nervous that he would be a handful in the school and that they wouldn't be able to handle him. Well to my surprise, they not only "handle him" , but he thrives in that environment. He just turned 3 and knows all of hs colors, how to spell his name, count, some sight words, and MUCH more. His speech has improved GREATLY in such a short duration of time. Everyone in our family notices the improvement in his behavior and cognitive abilities. He even has more self-confidence. He comes home and tells us "Ms. Taylor, tells me I am perfect all the time". He tells ANYONE that will listen how "perfect" he is and how much they love him.

I started out skeptical because I read some negative reviews on google, but I am happy I gave them a chance. I asked the owner about ALL negative reviews and she went over them in great detail. I am BEYOND pleased. I LOVE them!
I love his teacher, Ms. Taylor, she really takes the time to know all of his likes/dislikes and genuinely cares about him, When he is home he tells me "I love Ms. Taylor, mommy can I give her a hug?" As a working mom that gives me such joy and relief to now that your child is being taken care of so well.

I am so satisfied with the school that my son at 2 days a week and now increased to 5 days, He loves the school so much he cries on Saturday mornings when he realizes he is not going to school.

I HIGHLY recommend this school! Especially to fellow Doctors and/or Nurses because they have hours that are favorable for people that have the hospital schedule.

Try them you will be happy you did!

I don't know who has been leaving these bad reviews but I think they are a little ridiculous. I walked into Storybook yesterday and met Michelle after my kids have been attending 3 days a week for over a month now, she introduced me to her kids and I showed her a review that said her kids didn't even attend the center... Clearly a lie. One review said the facility isn't well lit which almost made me not even go but that was completely untrue. I'm kind of confused since my 4 kids have been going to Storybook for some time now and I haven't heard one real reasonable complaint. The only issue I have ran into is that my older son wants to hang out with his friends more after daycare so we set up play dates regularly at my house. That doesn't really have anything bad to do with the day care I think it's actually good that he's meeting like minded kids and they want to spend more time together it's just time consuming for me. Being a parent is hard enough as it is, don't waste your time reading some of these bad reviews, go to the center yourself and meet the people in person, there's hundreds of kids that are there everyday for a reason.

Where do I begin... Michelle is the owner of Storybook, I met her a few times and I see the passion for child care in her eyes. She is everyone's Mom. She's young, energetic, excited to work with kids and a wonderful lady to work with. I can't believe she owns the place and manages to be so involved with all the kids it makes me happy that I'm not throwing away my money to some big company that doesn't really care.

The Jen trio at the front desk are also amazing. My kids give them a hug before they leave and the Jen girls always make them smile. It really speaks for itself when you drop off your child smiling and pick them up smiling. Storybook is a big family and when I have my next child they will definitely be in attendance lol!

Everyday when I pick up my boy he is as happy as a father could want. I love that he's sad to leave Storybook and happy to show up. He even wakes me up sometimes asking to go and spend time with his friends... I'm proud to see him growing up in front of my eyes and I'm happy that he found a place he loves going.

I feel blessed to have come across a day care in West Islip. I live about 5-7 minutes away which makes me feel comfortable in case I need to pick up my babies. Initially I was worried about a day care center taking care of my kids but I really could not be happier with Storybook. The teachers are so caring and the girls at the front desk make me happy to be there!!

It's never an easy decision when deciding who will care for your kids so that you can work to give them the lives they deserve. We have been with the Storybook Family for the past 2 years, and we truly love watching our son thrive with their compassion and guidance. We looked at numerous centers from Farmingdale to west islip, and since joining the family here, we haven't looked back.We are so happy, that since my wife has recently gone back to work, that we will now have our daughter attending too. Thank you Storybook!

I switched to this daycare/preschool about 2 years ago and couldn't be happier. The compassion and care of these staff members are amazing. They all have a heart of gold. I feel extremely comfortable leaving my kids all day. I love the fact that i could call and they will automatically give me an update on how my babies are doing. 5+ stars!

I switched to this daycare/preschool 6 months ago and couldn't be happier. The care, compassion and understanding is top notch from the staff to the owner. I went from enrolling my now 3 year old to recently enrolling my 8 month old and actually feel they care for my kids almost as much as I do. 5+ stars!
