I am a mother of 2 boys who are now 14 and 11 years old. Both of my sons went to Pumpkin Patch Daycare (from age 2 until 5) and I cannot say enough positive things about Barbara Sledz and her wonderful daycare. It is a perfect setting, a small loving and caring environment run like a larger daycare center. My sons always looked forward to going and they learned so much while having fun and that’s what it’s all about! Barbara’s daycare was always clean, her staff qualified and courteous and she provided a safe, loving and caring environment for my children. I always felt extremely comfortable and never worried when I would leave my children in Barbara’s care while I was at work. It was their home away from home. I would highly recommend Pumpkin Patch Daycare.

I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old and both have been going to Pumpkin Patch since they were 6 months old. The mix of classroom and home setting is ideal for my children and I have been privileged to watch them thrive while in Barbra and her staff’s care. This is not a center with giant classrooms and rows of cribs or beds. It’s cozy. It’s calm. It’s safe. My kids have learned so much and most importantly, they love being there!

Pumpkin Patch is truly like a home away from home for our children. It is a warm, friendly environment for the kids to play and learn, and our children look forward to going there every morning! The staff are all wonderful and treat the children as if they were a part of their own family.

I was a child in pumpkin patch daycare 22 years ago. I remember it like it was yesterday. I have so many fond memories there. When I was 16 I actually started working there. We as teachers gave so much love to the children and taught them so much before their journey to kindergarden. We worked as a team and watched the children grow over the years. We did such a variety of activities with the children and experiments. It's such a great place to bring your child, the love, experience and learning they receive goes above and beyond any standard. The great thing about this daycare is also how much attention your child receives because its 1 teacher for every 4 children as apposed. To 1 teacher per 10 children. I love pumpkin patch and will one day bring my children here.
