Today I dropped my three-year-old daughter off to her Preschool class and decided to stay a few minutes. Her teacher, Ms. Brittany, showed exemplary classroom management. As a teacher myself, I find it very impressive when I see great classroom management being displayed. Students sat quietly and raised their hands waiting to be called on. Students sang songs related to the days of the week, months in a year, and seasons. Students also had to report their observations on the current weather to their teachers and peers. Needless to say I was very impressed by her engaging lesson. The students were focused on the lesson being presented and wanting to participate. Ms. Brittany is doing a fantastic job teaching my daughter and her classmates. She is a natural teacher. - Tanya B., Mother

Our family has been enrolled at Vernon Hills KinderCare since February 2010. We currently have two children enrolled, our daughter is two years old and our son is nine months old. We visited several day care centers before choosing Vernon Hills KinderCare and still to this day we know we have made the right choice for our children. The teachers are very friendly and they are always attentive to our children's needs and any concerns or special requests we may have. The Director and Assistant Director are also very hands-on within all the classrooms and they have taken the time to get to know our whole family. The activities in the classrooms are both fun and educational and we have incorporated several similar ideas from day care within our own home. Our children also benefit from the emphasis on developing social skills, cognitive skills, manners, and etc. Our family considers day care to be an investment and the return on investment provided by Vernon Hills KinderCare to both of our children is priceless. - Ashley H., Parent

I am very pleased with the staff at KinderCare Vernon Hills Creekside. The Director, Sarah and Assistant Director, Alyssa, are friendly, personable and always make the center a fun and educational place for my daughter. I also appreciate how they think about the parents as well. The newsletters are informational and the breakfast/coffee is a plus.

My daughter loves going to Ms. Debra W's for cooking and music class. She is innovative and creative. My daughter raves about her classes.

Ms. Simona and Ms. Roxy - Ms. Simona made a very nice book that encompassed all the pictures she took of my daughter doing projects in her class. She even included pictures of her just having fun. It's a book that I'm ever so grateful to have. As a working mom, you miss those precious moments. My daughter loved the original songs created by Ms. Roxy. My daughter sang songs and showed our family dance moves that she learned from Ms. Roxy. Needless to say she loved the two-year-old room with these teachers. - Tanya B., Mother

We have been with KinderCare since our daughter was four months old. KinderCare has a wonderful staff that is friendly and treats my child like she was one of their own. KinderCare offers programs that teach your child how to read, write and do math. They also have fun programs such as cooking and working on science projects. Ms. Debra has helped our daughter prepare for Kindergarten and we are so thankful for everything she has done for our daughter. Our daughter is now seven years old and is reading books at a fifth grade level, in math enrichment classes and is in great books in school. I am very pleased with KinderCare and would recommend this facility to parents who are looking for a place that is safe, caring and nurturing. - Mya L., Parent

We are the parents of Yashvi (now in 3's) and we are very satisfied sending our daughter to Vernon hills KinderCare. I would like to take some time to mention about few of them with whom I interact on a daily basis.

a) Director Sarah ROCKS. She is polite, courteous, follows up on any requests we have and updates us in a timely manner. I think her leadership is applaudable.

b) Ms. Alyssa (Asst. Director) and other Kindercare staff make our experience with KinderCare very pleasant.

c) Ms. Roxy and Ms. Simona are both AWESOME. They take good care of the kids, give me DETAILED updates everyday patiently and most of all they seem to enjoy the work which clearly reflects in their face.

d) They take pictures and preserve the craft work and share it later with me which gives us immense pleasure and happiness. Ms. Simona gave a yearbook kind of folder which had all the work which Yashvi did when she was in 2's. Wow... now that I see it as commitment to work. We miss Simona and Roxy as much as Yashvi misses them.

e) My girl loves the music classes and I am glad and appreciate the gesture of Ms. Debra where she voluntarily took in my kid for a 'test music' class if she was interested and ofcourse she was. We then enrolled her to the same.

KinderCare has gone 'Above and Beyond' to make my child's and our day to day life easier and enjoyable during her 2's stay and we look forward for the same in the 3's.

Thanks to all of you once again. Appreciate the great support. - Lokesh P., Father
