After doing extensive research, my husband and I originally chose Kindercare over the other daycare centers because of their scheduling flexibility. However, after being enrolled for 7 months, we now recommend them to all of our friends for not only their flexibility, but also because of the awesome staff that we entrust to take care of our daughter. They were great when we first took a tour of the facility, but anyone can put on a happy face. Not only are they genuine, but they go out of their way to meet the very specific needs that we request. The entire staff is on the same page, and we feel very blessed to have each and every one of them looking out for our daughter. As a first-time mom, it’s always a joy to pick up my child with a smile on her face! - Amy H., Mother

Our daughter has been at the Bloomingdale, IL center since she was 14 weeks old and is now four years old. We have had a wonderful experience in every room she has grown in to. Ms. Lilian and Ms. Joan are her current teachers and are amazing. Ms. Nicole, the Director, is wonderful and very approachable. We feel truly blessed to have found such a wonderful extension of our family values at this KinderCare center. Ms. Nazra was my daughter's three year old teacher and was so caring we feel she really helped our daughter come out of her shell. We are over all very pleased with all aspects of the center. - Mariah S., Mother

At the age of 15 months, I really trusted you and your staff with Kylah's care. You may recall how I reminded you that she was my first grandchild and I had a fear of leaving her alone with strangers and I recall you assuring us that she was in great hands. It seems like yesterday when Darnisha and I walked in and you greeted us only to realize that we had come to the wrong day care. Yet we toured your facility and went home and made our decision that this was the place for Kylah. Since being in your care, she has matured and grown into a wonderful child, from potty training to learning to write and recognize her name and much other developmental advancement. She has learned and developed so much with the help of you and your staff and now it's time for her to move on to the next chapter in her life. Darnisha and I are well pleased and appreciate all that you have done for our family. We will always remember the amazing job KinderCare has done. We will miss you guys!!! - Annette & Darnisha W., Grandma & Mother

I couldn't have been more fearful at the thought of leaving my baby with a bunch of strangers everyday. The staff very quickly made me not only feel comfortable with the situation but also made me feel like I was leaving him with family. Everyone is so warm and loving. I always feel comfortable dropping off my child knowing that the teachers show him love and comfort while also helping him learn new things everyday. I am thankful that all the staff has made my job as a single mother much easier knowing my baby is loved so much. - Kathy A., Mother

I can not tell you how pleased I am with the Stratford KinderCare. My son adores his teachers and has learned so much in such a short amount of time. I know that my daughters who are in the infant classroom are well taken care of and loved very much. I am at ease knowing that they are in good hands. - James M., Father

At first I was worried about sending my daughters to Daycare since I never did this with them or my two other older children. But after I toured the center and met all the teachers and staff I felt very welcome and felt the love and kindness from everyone. My three-year-old has learned a lot since being there, from talking more, to learning new things and making new friends. My seven-year-old attends the Before and After School program as well as the summer program and she loves it! She was very shy and said she didn't want to go at first because she was scared, but after encouragement from the teachers and making new friends she begs me to take her! This center is the best and I thank everyone there! - Cindy S., Mother
