I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My two children have attended Family Home Childcare since they were 5 months old and we are so grateful for the wonderful care they have received. Donna and her assistant are loving, kind, and great with children. Our oldest child participates in the pre-school age curriculum and has so much fun learning through educational projects. I highly recommend Family Home Childcare!

My son has been going here since he was 4 months old and is almost 3. It really is his 2nd home. We are so happy we went with an in home daycare now, we searched and toured many places. We love Donna and her staff (have had 2 in the last 3 years), we love the big back yard and home feeling instead of playground/cement play areas. He is happy to go every day and loves his friends. His little group has been the same kids and they all have fun together. She communicates well and listens and suggest ideas when questions arise of behavior at home or at school.

My son has been in Dana's care for about a month now. Our family has gone through some serious changes and it broke my heart to have to send him into someone else's care. While he cries when I leave, I am always delighted to return to a happy child who sometimes ignores me when I enter! He freely exclaims that he has fun with teacher Dana, Agnieszka (her assistant) and the other children in their care. They are understanding and sensitive to the needs of each of the children, and all the kids are happy, calm and clearly feel safe and nurtured in the environment. That they all seem healthy is another big plus in my book.

I would recommend Family Home Daycare to any mother who wrestles with having to send her child to daycare.

I will tell you what, I had almost gave up on the daycare system. While most providers ignore your child this is not the case at this small, quiet, home daycare.
My son has such horrible seperation anxiety and its not like this was his first daycare experience. Naturally it was hard for my son at first, cying and clinging to me as I tried to leave for work. It felt as if my heart was being torn from my chest, he hated the daycare system and I had no other choice but to leave my at this daycare it only lasted a week and he did a complete 360º. How often can a mother boast about there child loving the daycare provider? Not very often, I know my son if finally safe here at this daycare. having met some of the otherkids I was in shock on how well they all behaved, setting a great example for how my baby should act.

Daunta is a wonderful women, sweet, and caring, it shows through the children she watches.

To any mother fed up with chain daycares this is the center for you and she accepts dshs. Your child will no longer come home with inappropriate actions he or she has lerned from the other kids at daycare. Your child will have a voice in this daycare, for she listens and respects the child like an individual. Not only does she respect them and befriend the child but she nutures your childs development with small learning sessions that all the kids attend here. No matter the ages she involves them in small class time to lern the basics, adc's, 1, 2, 3s, ect.

With just enough love, respect, and a perfect ammount of strict behavior she has turned my child around completely.

For that I cant prossible show my gratitude enough. Thank you Daunta, I wouldnt know what I would have done without you!
