Having worked in daycare for many years and seeing how some directors/owners arein it for the money. I was really pleased when I walked in this daycare to enroll my then 2 yr old. It is clean and bright. Ms roberta and her staff are amazing. There are not enough words to explain what a wonderful center this is. There is a group od siblings that work here I call them the Fab 4. They are truly an asset to Ms Roberta's staff. Not saying every one else there isn't as amazing as the fab 4. I feel as though My son is being left with family when I leave him there. This center definately LOVES KIDS!

I have to say we absolutely love We Love Kids Childcare we started attending we love kids childcare when our twins were 4 months old and felt at home right away. Our 10, 12 year olds at the time also loved it and couldn’t wait to return. They loved the field trips and the teachers as well. They even transported them to and from school everyday.

 The infant room was so clean and well equipped with all the equipment you could think of. Ms. LaLa and Mrs. Mickey were absolutely fantastic and the Director and her Husband Mr. Mike and Mrs. Roberta do their very best at keeping this place upbeat and in check at all times, they run a tight ship together. They make it a point to personally get to know you and your child. (You’ll even see your child’s picture up on the wall or on the big screen TV when you first walk in)

Mrs. Roberta is an astonishing woman that I’m very pleased to know. She has bent over backwards and has helped my family and I in ways I never heard of a business doing. To make a long story short I had some problems financially with paying childcare for the twins and she made it a point to help me find a grant to help pay for the expenses. I don’t even know how to repay her.

This is defiantly the childcare facility that you want your little ones to grow up in. While us parents have to work to take care of our little ones and not have to worry and feel 100% confident that they are being well taken care of just as we do as parents.  They really love kids. The front desk receptionist Ms. Alisha and Ms. Maria are so sweet and welcoming everyday and every evening they make it a point to greet you as soon as you walk in the door and as soon as you leave no matter what’s going on in the daycare they make it a point to tell you to have a great day!

Our Twins are now 19 months old and have really enjoyed themselves there and will continue. I absolutely feel at home myself as a parent and I don’t worry about them when I leave. The teachers make it a point to calm my twins if they are having a bad day they immediately pick them up and comfort them before I leave so that I don’t feel like a bad mother leaving my crying child. For the most part they are always fine and usually tell me bye, bye and blow me kisses.  If you’re looking for a great place for your child to be well taken care of and to leave feeling 100% confident and a clean environment and totally kid friendly Check out We Love Kids ChildCare it’s the place to be a kid!!!

I don't usually give reviews but... I had to share my experience.  My daughter has been attending We Love Kids Child Care since before it got that name.  The owner Ms Roberta used to be the director there when it was Windsor Child Care.  I have seen nothing but improvements since she bought the business.  After 4 years of coming here I have nothing but great things to say about this center. 

Ms. Ary the 5's teacher is great and incredibly dedicated.  Many times I have seen her come in before her shift to prep for class and even take projects home when she has something special she wants to do with them.  They are having a preschool graduation in a couple weeks and Ms. Ary had beautiful invitations made by a friend of hers that have a picture and a sweet little poem plus all of the invite info.  It is a great keepsake that I will treasure forever.  They do actively work on teaching them kindergarten skills and I am amazed when my daughter shares all of the new things she learns each day.

It's been a while since we were in the rooms with diapers but when I chose this center it was because it was clean, the facility and the kids.  The center I had tried before always had kids running around with dirty noses and my daughter was sick the whole two months she attended there.  I've never encountered that here.  I also chose it because it was the only one I had visited that had a teacher actively working with the kids in each room.

Ms. Jackie was my daughters teacher for a most of the time prior to moving into Ms. Ary's classroom. (I think she's currently in the 3's)  She is like an aunt to each one of the kids.  She genuinely cares for them and their feelings and gives them lots of attention and affection.  We had a great experience with her, I felt like I was leaving my daughter with family each morning instead of a teacher.

Ms Sonya (sp?) my daughter has never had a class with but I've had the opportunity to see her class many times.  She has a way with kids and is able to teach them so many things that most would assume is beyond them.  Since she came to the center they have put on several concerts and plays to display just how talented these little one's are.

So this is way longer than I intended but I am so grateful that I found this place.  I am even a little sad that we will be moving on to elementary school soon and leaving We Love Kids behind us...
