Additional Information:

My wife Jamie and I (Bryan) are the owners and we have been in business for over 12 yrs. We started very small....out of our home and have expanded over the years to provide care to more families. We now service over 100 families daily and have a steady waitlist year-round. We provide full day care to children ages Infant - 5 yrs old as well as before/after school care to school aged children up to 12 yrs of age. We do not pigeon hole our facility as a "Christian based" facility, because we are open to families of all faiths, but we are very open with our families and even during our enrollment process we make sure those families considering our facility know that we are Christians and that the children will hear some bible stories as well as celebrate Christmas and have a quick prayer before lunch. Our mission is simple...To provide a safe, loving and learning environment for the families in the communities that we serve!

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

We've had our children, yes plural, there since they were infants and they are now both entering kindergarten. During the kindergarten enrollment process they actually asked us if our children went to Wish Upon A Star. We of course said yes and kind of laughed. They said they can always tell which kids went there because they are always way ahead of the other kids coming into kindergarten! We couldn't be happier with our experience here. There is such a lack of quality childcare around and we are happy we were able to get our children enrolled at Wish because they are often full.

Great daycare run by owners that work in the school and care a great deal about the welfare and condition of the children in their care. The academics and structure are second to none, and our children were actually a bit bored in Kindergarten, having learned a great deal of the content already in preschool here at Wish Upon a Star. It is a Christian-oriented facility, so if you're not okay with your kiddo learning about Christianity as part of their daily routine, this place isn't for you. The one negative reviewer likely has an undiagnosed special needs child. Our kids never had so much as a diaper rash while going here, they were very attentive, and anything that did occur could just have easily occured at home. I'd have no reservations in recommending them to anyone, if you're lucky enough to get a spot in their daycare. To the other reviewer - really leaving a review on the facility because someone forgot to call you back? Seriously? Perhaps this is the first time you've heard this, but the world doesn't actually revolve around you, and the attention of the employees goes first and foremost to the kids.

I pulled my child out of this daycare for safety concerns and failure to report incidents. 3 times within a month that my child's well being was being compromised - the last time involved a trip to the ER. I do not recommend this facility to anyone.

I called this facility multiple times to enroll my child and was to be called back when the woman was done finishing something up and still haven't received a call back!
