I cannot say enough nice things about Lil Soldiers 4 Christ daycare. Miss Lily was a God send to our family. We have an unexpected temporary little blessing come live with us and Miss Lily stepped up without hesitation. We have seen amazing changes in our little one since she has started attending Lil Soldiers. Miss Lily and her staff are a complete blessings to our family. She always reports on how the day has gone, we are always greeted with respect and staff are so pleasant especially to our little ones. I have so much respect for Miss Lily. I highly recommend Lil Soldiers.

Lil’ Soldiers 4 Christ has been excellent for my two daughters. The owner and workers love my children as their own. My 2 year old says “yay!!!” every time I say let’s go to school! The friends and values she has gained here are priceless. My other daughter who is 5 months old had open heart surgery at 6 weeks. Let me be very specific when I say these teachers have gone above and beyond to love my daughter and give them their best. Lily, Bethany, and Kalani have truly given my momma heart such peace!! Easiest decision to trust them with my daughters!!!

I would not recommend this daycare for anyone. The people who own/operate it are horrible nasty people. They are negligent in the care of the babies and children that attend this center. There have been numerous reports of Bethany taking down to and cursing at children neglecting to give them proper care. They force your child to nap from 11:30/12:00 until 3:30 or 4:00. They are constantly leaving and are very often not in compliance with the child/teacher ratio. Liliana bashes the children and is very confrontational when or if you attempt to bring up issues or concerns especially those regarding her employees (daughters). They claim to be Christian based, however, they're very hypocritical and judgemental. This place does not deserve even one star and should be CLOSED DOWN IMMEDIATELY.
