I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My son is 3 years old and has attended the Watts family daycare since February 2015. He has learned so much in 6 months. He has learned how to say and recognize the abc's, he knows all the colors, he knows how to spell his first and last name, he's spelling 3 and 4 letter words, he knows how to count to 40 and he is currently recognizing his numeric digits up to 23.

I highly recommend Mrs. Watts. She takes proud in her teaching and working with the kids.

My son loves her and he is happy every morning to get up and go to the Watts family daycare. He is eagerly taking in more information each day.

I love Watts Family Daycare. 2 years ago we moved out to Jacksonville and had to find a new school for my son. My sister in law recommended Watts family Daycare saying all these great things about them. Let me tell you that my son learned more from her then he did at the last school he attended. He could not spell his name or count to 100. A week with Mrs. Cherry and he knew my cell phone number, our address and how to spell his name. Mrs. Cherry is such a loving and caring person. Thanks to her my son exceeded and is now going to be in 1st grade. Till this day she still calls to check up on him. Thank you WFD for all that you have done for my son. I would definitely recommend WFD to friends and family.

There's nothing bad I can say about WFD. I have both my sons (ages 9 and 1) attending there.I have been with Mrs.Watts since my oldest was 3 years old.Mrs.Watts holds the highest degree of respect,professionalism,loving and nourishment I have seen in daycare providers.Not only does she teaches the kids but she loves and cares for them as her own.She holds up her value on discipline and all the kids respect her.When my son was having trouble with his work in school, Mrs Watts was the one who made it possible for him to pass and excel to the next grade. I couldn't even look at another childcare provider without comparing it first to Watts Family Daycare.I love Mrs. Watts as if she was my own mother and couldn't possibly move my kids away from her.When people ask me if I know of any childcare providers that I would suggest, you better believe WFD is and will always be at the top of my list.:-)

I count it a pleasure, a privilege and an honor to have experienced both The Watts Family Daycare/VPK services for 8 years. When Mrs. Watts approached me (and my 4 month old daughter at the time) in Walmart store back in 2006, I perceived that she loved kids and that she wanted nothing but the best for them. Mrs. Watts politely as well as professionally greeted me with her delightful warm smile and business card in hand and suggested that if I needed her services that I should give her a call. To be perfectly honest, I hesitated at first because of my not so pleasant experiences I've had with 2 other daycares in the past so I continued to let my sister babysit my daughter. However a few months later, my daughter started maturing more and I realized she'd become more curious and that she needed to be in a learning environment. Plus, I didn't think it was fair to judge WFD based on the incompetence of the other daycares I've encountered in the past. So, I made the call and to this day, I don't regret it not one bit. My daughter attended WFD and VPK. She is now 8 years old in the third grade. She's certified gifted by the DCSB, she attends a magnet school and she also has been an "A" honor roll student ever since kindergarten. I must admit, if it had not been for me allowing fate to have it's way by making that call to Mrs. Watts in 2006, I don't believe I'd be saying all these amazing things about my daughter's academic success today. Did I forget to mention that my 4 year old son recently graduated from her 2013-2014 VPK class? Mrs. Watts assigned each student a special skill to recite at the graduation and my sons special skill was to spell "UNIVERSITY". And he spelled it with flying colors!!! Isn't that great? He's now 5 years old in kindergarten and I'm anxiously anticipating celebrating all of his future achievements just as I've had the joy of doing with his sister. All in all, the education as well as the tender, love and care that Mrs. Watts and her staff provides to the little ones is amazing and superb!!! #NoRegrets

There isn't enough I can say about Mrs. Cherry Watts and the entire Watts Family Daycare staff. I brought my son to Mrs. Watts at the age of eight weeks old and he is now five years old and still receiving the upmost care at WFD. She began teaching him and molding his mind at a very early age, he attended her pre-K program and has learned things that I can't even believe. He just started kindergarten on Monday but has been able to write and spell his name, recite his days of the week, months of the year, count to 100 and beyond, his planets and a number of other things since the age of 3 that he would not have been exposed to at your average Day care center or pre-K program. Mrs. Watts and the WFD staff are the most caring, loving, generous, encouraging people I have come across in quite some time. They are definitely in the right business and you know from the start that they do this because they are passionate about it. My Child feels at home when he goes to school and knows that Miss Cherry cares about him, his development and well-being. All the children from the babies to the bigger kids are well taken care of at WFD and I can't think of a better place for any parent to bring their child. It's the beginning to a bright future!

Three of my children has attended Watts Family Daycare and my husband and I know without a doubt that we chose the right childcare provider. Mrs.Watts knows what she is doing and more importantly she LOVES teaching, training and encouraging them. She gives each child individual attention. When they walk through the door they feel right at home and is happy to see her. Everyday my daughter was so happy to be going to her VPK class and learn something new and come home and share it with us with the biggest smile on her face and say, "I learned that from Auntie Cherry." Honestly I didn't want my children to leave I wish Mrs.Watts could teach K -12th grade. I know they will be safe and taught properly. At the end of the year when the kids have graduated from VPK Mrs. Watts have a graduation ceremony for them and she goes above and beyond for her kids. I trust her and the staff and really appreciate everything they have done. I RECOMMEND Watts Family Daycare. You won't be disappointed.

I had the pleasure of sending my son here, after having multiple behavior issues with him at other centers. Mrs. Watts new exactly how to handle and reinforce this behavior. My son looks forward to attending her center everday. I have never heard him say anything negative about the other children or Mrs Watts. She is always pleasant when I drop my son off in the morning, greeting him as well. Which is very important. I hear my sister' complain about the centers their children go to and how their children are ignored apon drop off. I am thankul I have not experienced this. My son has learned so much while attending here. She knows what she is doing when it comes to children. She strives for them academically, while allowing them to be children. I am saddened I will be having to leave her in a few weeks, due to us moving recently. I still anticipate the reaction of my son. I know he will miss her. Thank you Mrs. Watts.

For top child care in a family environment, Watts Family Daycare should be the only choice. My son has been attending this daycare for 4 years. The children there all are given the proper tools in order to succeed when beginning school. The Watts staff definitely ensures that your child is safe and in a fun learning environment. The staff is wonderful. You wont be disappointed.

Hello all. My son has attended Watts Family Daycare 2 1/2-3 years. I truly love Mrs.Watts and the associate providers there because they actually CARE. They are many daycares and VPKs out there to choose from. Most want your money and do not provide your child with what Mrs. Watts provides. Here is what you can always expect: a clean environment, cooked and healthy food, discipline, education and love. Mrs. Watts loves her children and it shows. She prepares the children as if they are her own for not just school, for life. She is honest, and has expectations that the parent will do their part as well. My son had to pass an assessment in order to get into the private school he will be attending. I was worried (as many parents would be). By the time the head of the school was done with my son, she came out smiling and delighted at the things my son knew and how far he could go with things, beyond what was needed. All children have abilities, some areas are stronger than others. Mrs. Watts works with those abilities and feeds where your child is weaker at; something most teachers today do not bother with, they will just tell you the problem and expect you (without the education experience) to FIX it. I truly love this daycare/VPK. I believe you will, too.

Peace of Mind Jul 28, 2014

My grandchild attended and still attends WFD and it has been one of the best experiences she has ever had and one that has given me complete peace of mind knowing that she is in the care of individuals who have her best interest at heart. I do not have to worry about her safety; especially since today even childcare providers are coming under scrutiny. In addition, WFD keeps my grandchild challenged in her academic abilities. She attended WFD prior to attending school and still attends during the summer. I have never had any complaints. Truly the best care anyones child could ever have.
