I have used this provider for more than 6 months

I used this daycare for my two children for over 10 years (from six months old on up through twelve years old)and could not have been happier with my decision. Choosing a daycare provider for your child(ren) is one of the most important decisions you'll ever have to make considering that he/she may spend more time with your child than you do. With that said, Patty and her home offered the same surroundings, disciplinary actions and expectations that my own family did. I never felt like I was taking my children to a daycare but rather to a friend's home. It didn't feel right even calling her home a daycare because I felt so comfortable there and my children loved her, the property and the other kids so much that we always just said "we're going to Miss Patty's house today!"
This made it so much easier for me to know that my kids enjoyed going there and that they were being cared for by someone who loved them and always put their safety and well-being first. I can't imagine what it would have been like to have someone other than Patty be the caregiver for so many years to my children. I highly recommend her and will always treasure her friendship and the years that my children spent at her home.

My two children were in Patty's care during the last year. They were well taken care of, and I loved that they were able to socialize and play in a small group setting. They were able to get lots of exercise outside and play with a variety of toys inside. Patty cared for them like family. She was kind and caring, and also reinforced sharing and responsibility. We only switched caregivers when our school situation changed this year. I highly recommend Patty.

I wish there was more than 5 stars to rate this day care! This home daycare was where both of my children went for many years. It was a place that when I dropped them off they said “bye mom”! They loved Patty’s daycare. They both learned a lot being around other children and loved their play time there.
I highly recommend this daycare!

My son went to Patty’s for several years. I appreciated the structure, cleanliness, and overall welcoming feeling. My son felt extremely at home there. He couldn’t wait to go back every day. Patty knew how to handle his energy level and special medical needs. She provides clear and honest communication with parents as well. Over the years she became like family. I would highly recommend Patty, and do often to friends and neighbors.

Patty has cared for all 3 of my children from 3 years old until 8 years old. I have been so thankful to have my 3 children watched and cared for by her, she has been amazing and my children love going to daycare. I highly recommend her daycare service.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

We went to Patty for two years and in that time, Patty provided good care. There were some mishaps that occurred while the kids were out of eye sight, which we never questioned but probably should have. This year, my son was beginning kindergarten in a school district different than the one the other kids were going to. The district would provide bussing, but Patty gave multiple reasons as to why she would not be able to make it work. Finally, she called and left a voicemail stating that she would no longer be able to watch my children 2 days prior to the start of school. We would recommend that you do not send your children here because the care apparently is unreliable and can be ended at the drop of a hat.

I explained to the parents that I would allow, and give written permission for the bus to come up my driveway to pick up their 5 year old; unfortunately, the school would not allow this. The parents wanted me to trust their 5 year old at the bottom of my driveway at 7:00am to wait on a bus for pick-up. My driveway is on a sharp corner and I loved their little boy so much that I would have felt terrible if anything would have happened to him. I am sorry this happened, but I will always put SAFETY first, over me making money.
