I went to this place from when I was 2 years old, to when I was 10 years old before I moved. I loved this place the teachers were not mean, they were nice and I wish I was still there because I miss this place. I recommend this place to alot of family's. It's fun and it's a great place to make some new friends.

Our daughter has been enrolled at Hickory Dickory Tots since she was 18 months old. The previous year, she had been in a nurturing private home which we adored, but we needed to find someplace closer to home with more convenient hours. Immediately upon entering HDT, we were comforted by the welcoming environment and warm staff. We appreciate the daily feedback we receive about our daughter's schedule. We especially enjoy that she is given a variety of developmentally appropriate indoor and outdoor activities including storytelling, singing, playing house, and multi-sensory fun. We LOVE that she has messy fun with paints, dough, and other materials at HDT, because then we don't have to clean it up! :) The teachers interact beautifully with the children ALL day. I have arrived near closing time to find the teacher and the children engaged in play. You'll find the energetic director working in the classroom helping children and teachers. I could easily write much more about our positive experience at HDT; but in the end, all that matters is that our daughter loves coming here.

The owner lacks ethical cognitive behavior capability to continue to make decisions in the day to day functions of the facility. She has no merits to operate such a facility in where she has to make decisions on behalf of the care and well being of children. She continues to make excuses for illicit behavior and practices that take place in her facility. A factor to support my claim is her appointment of an incompetent director who clearly behaves in a manner of an individual who suffers from several known clinical mental disorders. This individual has quit (walked out) on the kids previously on more than one occasion without notice. Same individual has made calls against the center to Children Protective Services as well as the State of Ohio. This dynamic duo has created a "circle the wagons culture" in which any and all liability is shifted from the center and its subordinates and placed on the children. The owner behaves in a manner in which she values the reputation and assets of the center above the welfare of the children. There are several reviews in which both former parents of children and employees of the center describe the above mentioned grievances. I encourage you to carefully consider this and several other reviews when making your decision on this facility. Parents by any chance your children attend this center PLEASE continue to encourage them that they are indeed special, continuously ask them about their day and keep a open line of communication about their treatment at the center.

I absolutely love this center!! My daughter has been here the past 3 1/2 years, i am very particular because i have a degree in early childhood education, so i look for more than just a babysitter. The preschool program prepares them for kindergarten. The children go into school ready. They have an awesome summer program. The teacher's are friendly, the owner is very sweet I love Miss Karen! The center is clean & bright, I'm one that cringes when it comes to bad smells, never had that problem here.

My 6 yr.old grandson has attended Hickory Dickory Tots for about three years. He has had excellent teachers and has learned far more than had he been in a home day care. He is in a reading class and has learned to love the teachers and fellow students. The owner is exceptional and runs a CLEAN top notch facility!

The center may look nice but its what is beyond the looks is where it matters. The teachers were not professional. They were young uneducated women who did not know how to control their tempers. I walked in on a teacher yelling at my son more than once. I also came at lunch time once and saw what they were feeding them. It was the cheapest canned processed food they could find. If you want a quality center this is not it. Look for a center that has step up to quality stars. This one failed their inspections every time.
