I have used this provider for more than 6 months

This letter is in reference to Nicole Dempsey and her Little Acorns daycare.  My children, now 5 and 10 have attended Nicole’s daycare for the past 3 years.   I have always been extremely comfortable with my kids in her care and know they feel like this is their second home.  I would like share a few highlights that have made me so satisfied with her care:
1.     Both of my kids have always been excited about going to Nicole’s.  I have never heard “I don’t want to go or I want to stay home.”  At times they don’t even want to leave with me when I pick them up! :)
2.     I know they are kept busy during the day with different activities, crafts, playing outside and learning activities.
3.     I have had the opportunity to spend time with her own kids outside of daycare as they have become good friends with my kids.  They are two of the most polite, respectful and caring kids I have met so I know she must be doing something right when it comes to raising kids!
4.     Her daycare area is ALWAYS clean, organized and cheerful which makes it a comfortable environment to leave my kids.
5.     I appreciate Nicole’s honesty when it comes to behavior issues and feel her her tactics of discipline are fair and appropriate.
You can feel confident in choosing to place your child in Nicole’s care.  I have had previous negative experiences with other daycares which make me even more greatly appreciate Nicole and all she has done for my kids. Please feel free to contact me if you any further questions.
