What The Parents Say

We knew a tour first visit that we wanted our daughter to go to It’s All About Kids daycare and everyday confirms this decision for us. We see the way staff and management demonstrate values of respect, care, accountability, compassion, learning and love; from the way they talk to and about the kids to the thought and effort put into programming and the constant emphasis on safety. These are values that align with our own and were important to us in a daycare. We knew our daughter is safe and cared for has so much fun by how her independence and confidence has grown, and we are blessed and thankful to be a part of the It’s All About Kids community.

Hilary & Ken

The atmosphere at It’s All About Kids is both positive and stimulating to learning a wonderful curriculum filled with creative activities. My older son has become more confident, positive and well mannered. Daycare provided him with the skills he needed to transition to kindergarten with confidence and ease. My younger son has developmental delays but thanks to the staff for working hard with him. They are kind. thoughtful, energetic and truly loving towards my son. We have complete peace of mind every day he is there, which exceeds all of our hopes for what a daycare could be. I wish they had a after school care program and we would never leave.
