I have used this provider for more than 6 months

When I first toured Beckas I stood outside and wanted to dislike it so that I could stay home with my child for another year. Well, as soon as I met Becka and Liz I knew it would be a great fit for our family. The purpose built space with separate areas for different age groups is wonderful. My daughter was always happy to go and I felt like I was leaving her in great hands. She even wants to go back and visit now that she’s at school.

We love Becca’s! She always makes my son feel so special and I know he is well taken care of and looked after. They are very loving and kind to the children and my son absolutely loves going. You will not have to worry if you leave your children here.

My son, who turns 4 next week, has been attending Becka's daycare since he was a baby and we could not be happier with his care! I am so grateful we were pointed in the direction of this daycare when we were searching! He absolutely loves Miss Becka and Miss Liz and all his friends! Knowing he is safe and happy and treated like family has been the greatest blessing to us!

Becka's Playground is a great daycare and I would highly recommend this daycare to anyone. My child is 6 months old and has been attending Becka’s Playground for a little over 3 months now and I couldn’t be happier with the care she receives. The daycare is super clean and my child is taken care of and safe. I often brag that my child attends the best daycare and I truly believe that she does. Becka and Liz are phenomenal and have a passion for what they do. They both have great energy and it is obvious that they love the kids.

Becka’s Playground is truly a place that treats every child like they are their own. It was hard leaving my son to go to work everyday, but it was such a huge relief to know he was getting the best possible care and having a blast with all his friends. These are honestly the most caring, loving people I have ever met. My son stays home with me now since I had my second son, and he misses it so much! Loving, responsible, fair priced, extremely clean, great structure.. everything you could want in a daycare!

Becka’s Playground provided 4 years of excellent day care for my daughter. I knew that she was always safe and well taken care of by the staff. I also liked that it was a smaller daycare, and that it had a “family like” atmosphere. We will always be very appreciative to Becka and her staff for all they did for our family.

Becka's Playfround is a great home daycare for your child.  I sent my daughter there for three years.  She loved every minute of it.  Becka's Playground is clean, safe, and has wonderful employees.  My daughter was always well taken care of and loved.

It’s hard to put into words the special place that Becka has in our hearts. Our son was with Becka from 5 months to 5 years of age. In that time, she and the others who worked for her became like family. Our son was well cared for and well loved. Becka worked with us through all the new parent jitters and supported us as we navigated through all the firsts our son had. Sending your child to Becka is one of the best choices you can make for your child and your family.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

We have entrusted Becka with the care of both of our children and could not be more grateful for the love and care she provides. When trying to find a daycare six years ago, we were scared and hesitant to hand over our baby to anyone. We couldn’t be more grateful that this was the decision we made. We can go to work knowing Becka will care for our kids like her own. There is no greater relief as a parent than that.
