My son started going to Treasured Times when he was just 5 months old. It was so difficult to think about heading back to work and finding someone that I felt comfortable with. I wanted someone that would love my child like their very own & I found that with the Treasure Times. Kathleen immediately helped me feel at ease. She made sure he had everything he needed. She also provided daily reports so I knew how much he ate, how long he slept, what activities he did and even how many dirty diapers he had. As he grew, I was amazed how much he learned, from colors, shapes & letters to how to cook and even ride a scooter! I was always amazed by how much he knew about subjects that I didn't teach him. Unfortunately, we had to leave this wonderful daycare when he was 2.5 because I needed something closer to work. My son still talks about Kathleen, her husband and all of the kids he met along the way. I know this was an experience he will never forget. We are so thankful!

As new parents, choosing a childcare provider for our daughter was an extremely challenging task. After meeting with the owner, we felt immediately relieved to have finally found a setting and provider that "felt right." Our daughter quickly fell in love with the energetic, patient, and kind owner and we never had to worry about her health, safety, or happiness. This is one of those rare providers who has discovered her gift and we are so thankful for the time our daughter spent at A Treasured Time.

As a single mom I was in a panic when my babysitter had to stop tending to my 6 mth old daughter. Stay at home moms kept telling me about this lady and her well behaved children. What I wouldn't have known then is now my daughter is 2.5 yrs old and still with this wonderful lady and thriving. Let me explain thriving: knows her colors, letters, numbers, speaks in full and clear sentences, understands the importance of hygene, being kind to one another, and now is even potty trained. All of this came from a very special lady who has a love of children. I go to her for advice when trying new things with my daughter. She is a blessing and I can't imagine my daughters life without her.

I'm a little over the top when it comes to my son....needing to know the lunch menu, bottle water, calling 6 times a day, etc. All these worries have vanished since my son started attending Treasured Times! Not only has my son developed in his maturity & independency but his grammer, vocabulary and reading comprehension skill have soared greatly! Highly recommended!!

Treasured Times is everything (and beyond) a parent could ever ask for in a child care provider. The environment invites your child to play and stimulates their mind to learn! The owner genuinely values each child and is attentive and nurturing. She offers each child a sense of security, and each parent confidence, in her care. She is one of the most creative teachers I have known and keeps the children engaged using a variety of teaching elements, whether it's in a traditional setting, nature, music, arts and craft or even through food! My daughter is always eager to go to daycare in the mornings and has a story to tell at the end of the day. Parents can put their minds totally at ease, knowing their child is in the care of Treasured Times!

As a first time mother hesistant about returing to work, my fears were eased after running into the Treasured Times owner in my subdivision. My daughter is always so happy to see her in the morning and hangs on to her in the afternoon. I know that my baby is loved and well cared for. The kids are fed nutritious meals (fruits, veggies, and sugar free popsicles). The children are always enagaged and have a song to sing for you. You cannot find a better place for your chidren to learn, grow, and thrive!!

We have been very pleased with the care our son receives at Treasured Times. The owner is very creative with teaching the children, and has transformed her home into a learning environment. She is very conscientious of the children's individual stages of development. We tried several places before this and have been exceptionally pleased and most of all ....at ease with leaving our son in their care.

I feel that God led me to A Treasurd Time family-day-care. I visited five differnt day-cares before I visited A Tresurd Time. I immediately knew it was the one. To confirm this my children(a two and a three year old) always want to stay and even want go during the weekend. My toddlers know their ABC's, shapes, colors and numbers up to 20. My children and I love A Treasured Time. And I stongly belive that the owner LOVEs what she is doing. The children are obviously her top priority.

I have to say that as a mother of 3, this is my first experience of feeling so comfortable leaving my children with someone who is not related to the family. Treasure time a great provider and the quality of learning that my children exhibit in such a short time is worth more than gold!! When considering a new area to live in, my children's provider is the first to come to mind....that is how valuable the services are to me!!

If you want a daycare that feels like home for you and your child. Treasured Times is the place for your family! The owner is a true teacher at heart and educates young children with incredible patience. She has taught my 2 year old to count to 20, spell his name and varied science concepts (like making mud from dirt)that many children do not recieve until they are in preschool. The owner is a gift in the daycare world. I choose her over any chain daycare anyday!
