Five years ago, my family and I were going through a transition and needed safe, happy and loving childcare for my 2 year old son and 4 month old daughter. Kinder Care of Malvern has been just that and so very much more!

I felt a connection from the very first time I called to inquire - my questions were always answered promptly, professionally and with a very happy tone. And trust me when I say that I called many times before making the final decision and each and every time my inquiries were met with a very warm, friendly and reassuring response.

My daughter started out in the infant room and my son next door with the 2 year olds.

Initially - as with any new experience, I was nervous but hopeful it would all work out. Drop off to any caregiver can be tough at the beginning especially when your kids cry as you try (unsuccessfully) to sneak out the door unnoticed. Every teacher at Kinder Care made that experience easier by immediately providing a fun distraction for the kids. It would still always be hard (I think more so for me) and the teachers were always patient and reassuring when I called almost everyday to make sure the kids were OK. Eventually, I stopped calling because I knew my children were safe, well cared for and happy - it showed each day when I came to pick them up.

The teachers and staff work very hard to provide a daily routine that is both fun and educational for the kids - at every age!!! Very early on, I can remember other family members and friends of our family being so impressed at the vocabulary the kids had, at how much they were learning (numbers, days of the week, months of the year) and at how well adjusted and happy they were over all.

For working parents, the happiness and reassurance of knowing your children are happy and safe cannot be expressed in words. I am so very deeply grateful for the love and care each teacher has given both of my kids - from the day they started five years ago.

My son is now in second grade and no longer attends Kinder Care but the one thing I can say for sure is that his transition to a new school for Kindergarten was completely seamless. He was excited and more than prepared and I owe that completely to the quality education and confidence he received at KinderCare for all those years. I know that his teachers were preparing him for Kindergarten and for that reason he was excited (not afraid). He knew all his numbers, his letters, and could effortlessly write his name just to mention a few of the things he learned.....all of which helped him to have a GREAT head start and to make his first year at a new school fun and not at all stressful.

My daughter is now preparing to go to the same school as her brother which means that our time at KinderCare is sadly coming to an end. It is difficult to put into words the gratitude my husband and I have for the amazing teachers and staff at the Malvern Kinder Care. I've been amazed at how much my daughter has grown from the day she first arrived - she has truly blossomed from all the love and care she has received. She also is already well prepared for Kindergarten and has already started reading!!  Again - credit I give to Kinder Care.

All the teachers and staff at the Malvern Kinder Care are so much more than our day-care providers - they have become part of our family and will always have a very special place in our hearts. - Nancy H., Parent
