I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I have a 5 year old girl that had been with Becky since she was 2 and she was absolutely amazing! We had to unfortunately leave due to us moving, and I can only hope we find someone nearly as amazing as Becky. They have a fenced in back yard with a little jungle gym outside, and lots of activities to do inside as well. It’s not just a “daycare” where she went to be supervised during the day, she was cared for like their own child in learning manners and being cared for. even though there are other kids (which helps with her social skills too) she still got personalized attention as well. If you are in the area and are looking for child care I would absolutely beyond recommend Becky!

We are sad that our son will no longer go to Becky's day care once we move. Becky has always provided excellent care for our son. She has a very loving, caring family that are all amazing with our son. She always provides details of the days activities. We were truly fortunate to have Becky. Highly recommend her!

My daughter was with Becky for a number of years. She always provided good quality care. She provided a preschool program that my daughter really enjoyed. She also provided a music program. If she needed to be gone her husband can step in. When I had difficulty she even helped me over night a time or two. I would highly recommend her. I read the above reviews. I'm not sure who the other client was but this not our experience.

I highly recommend Becky her home and her family as day care provider.

Becky was extremely flexible with mine and my husbands crazy schedule that constantly changed.

My children thrive in her daycare.

My children were excited every day to go see Becky and her family.

There was not one day that Becky missed telling me a story,concern or something funny that my children did that day.

Becky is a great communicator and always put my husband and I at ease when we have concerns about our children. She always came up with great suggestions for us to try.

I love having Becky and her family as a great support system for my family.

There is nothing better than walking in the door in hearing your child laughing hysterically with her children. It was like they're home.

Very thankful for Becky.

Becky cared for my son for two years when she was in Maplewood, I've worked at 3M for 9 years and can say if she hadn't moved to Corcoran my son would have remained there, he made friends, he loved going every day, he could barely contain himself every morning on the way there. He cried when I had to tell him he wouldn't be going there anymore. He loved the dog and the other kids so much Becky is a wonderful person and so is her family I recommend Becky and Circle of friends anytime!

my child has been in Rebecca's daycare for 3 years. It's been an amazing environment! We are very sad to be moving out of state and not able to pack her up along with us.

She has 2 adults in the home therefore my child has had a lot of individual attention. Even though she is licensed for a high number of children she keeps a relatively small group giving her the time to do art projects that are sent home almost daily.

I felt at home every time that I walked in her door. She has hooks for each child with pictures above them so that you can see the faces to all of the names that your child comes home talking about.

the backyard is fenced in and VERY child oriented. The children definitely have a space of their own.

I was a new and single mom when I placed my child in her care and she was more than willing to work with my always crazy schedule and her rates were very affordable.

Becky is incredibly friendly. You can tell that she truly loves what she does. So basically if you are looking for an amazing daycare to call home this is a perfect environment. We can only hope to find someone half as amazing as Rebecca has been to me and my growing family.

Our son was with Becky's daycare for three years when she was in Maplewood, MN. He thrived there! Becky provides a loving atmosphere and we feel lucky to have had her looking after our boy. Highly recommended.
