Our son has been going to this school for almost a year now and he loves it (and we love it too). The director does a great job with the center and children. Plenty of activities, pictures and more. We have moved out of the area and are sad leave the school. Highly recommended.

Our toddler has been attending this daycare since January. During the stay at home orders he regularly asked us if he could go to Ana's house and we were so happy to be able to send him back starting in June. At the start of the pandemic Ana brought us some bags of toys our son liked from daycare as well as some arts and craft activities for us to do with him. Since returning our son has gotten to do outdoor water activities, baking, tons of arts and crafts and has so much to tell us about when we pick him up. We are so glad that we found this daycare!

Our daughter attended this daycare for almost two years. After trying a daycare center, we sought a smaller more nurturing environment where she could continue to learn and develop. Gheorge and Gabriella treat the children like family, and provide specialized attention and structure. We always knew that our daughter was loved and cared for while we worked - that piece of mind is priceless. Our daughter was well prepared for pre-k and transitioned beautifully. We are so thankful for Gheorge and Gabriella! We still stop by whenever we can to spend time and say hello.

We have had our son at this daycare since he was 3 months old and he has been there for 2.5 years. Our experience has been so wonderful that our daughter joined him when she was 3 months old. This is the most warm, caring and safe environment. I feel they truly love my children but an added bonus is that they meet or exceed all developmental milestones thanks to personalized attention and focus on learning! Our oldest has a fall birthday and we felt we could delay preschool until age 3 because Elham does such a good job at teaching him. Elham is extremely responsive with the reasonable exception that she is very attentive to the children and cannot answer phones when attention must be on them. Most of the time my kids do not want to leave when I pick them up. During the Covid-Era, they have bent over backwards to keep us safe and to keep daycare open. 5-Stars is not enough- they keep our world going and we trust them with our hearts!

Lily Pads is fantastic! My son (now 4) has been there since he was 18 months and my daughter (now 2) has been there since she was 5 months. They are both incredibly happy at Lily Pads. They feel safe, loved, and supported. The teachers are wonderful!! They have cultivated an amazing environment in which the children are engaged in play based learning, encouraged to explore new things, and invited to participate in activities like dance, music, soccer, and gymnastics. The staff are responsive to the needs and interests of the children, adjusting curriculum and activities as the children grow to keep them having fun, developing their skills, and learning new things. The staff are also great with the parents. They provide regular updates and photos throughout the day to let you know what and how your child is doing. They welcome you in for special activities to be part of your child's day and experience, and work with you to support your child's needs and goals. The proprietor, Leah, is fabulous as well! I knew as soon as I met her that Lily Pads was the right fit for our family. She immediately left me with the feeling my child/now children would be loved and nurtured at her facility, and has lived up to that first impression every day since. She takes great care in choosing her staff, working to develop their knowledge and skills, and encouraging their creativity. I really can't say enough wonderful things about them. I know first hand that not all child care centers are as good as Lily Pads. We had my son at another facility before Lily Pads and he was miserable. He dreaded going, and wasn't eating or sleeping well. Within our first week with Lily Pads, it was a total 180. He was his happy, cheerful self again, which let us know without a doubt that we had found the right spot and have happily stayed ever since.
