I am an employee

As someone who has been around Marcy for a long time, I can say that she is by far the best person to care for children. I, myself used to come to Marcy and I’m now 18 years old. Ever since I started coming to Marcy I never wanted to leave. Now working for her, I see how great she is towards other children. I highly recommend her to watch kids, boys or girls!

I have had to privilege of knowing Marcy for 10 years, when she started watching my son. Marcy has an unexplainable way with kids that makes her amazing! Marcy has cared for all 3 of me children, and had guided them through the most challenging milestones with such love and understanding! Marcy cares for her kids and parents and I am always grateful for the day we met! I always recommend Marcy, and my kids love her like family.

Marcy has been watching my children (1 boy and 1 girl) for almost 3 years now. I have NEVER had an issue with my children going there. I am more than grateful to go to work with the peace of mind that my children are safe and cared for. My children love going there and get along well with the other children. Any time something happens with my children, even if it’s a time out, she makes me aware that this happened and what led to them being put in time out. Potty training my son in the beginning was very difficult and she made it so easy, gave me tips and helped me stick with it and now he’s doing fantastic. I highly recommend Marcy and absolutely trust her with my children.

She factorizes boys over girls. Allowed her "favorite" child to beat up on my chi;d. If there was an issue, she NEVER brought it up to my attention and when I brought it to her, she responded with "oh, I knew this was going to be brought up" She called my child names. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS WOMAN TO WATCH ANY CHILD EVER!!!!
