The Harvest staff is loving, nurturing, child-centered, professional, dependable, and more! My three year old son has been with Harvest since he was three months old and it has been the absolute best experience! I can't put into words how reassuring it is to leave my son everyday knowing that he's in good/loving hands, receiving the best care, and learning so much. Ms. Lynette, the owner, has created a learning environment that encourages and develops the young mind. My son is excited to go to school every morning and when I pick him up in the afternoon, he says with a huge smile, "Momma, I had a good day at school today"! Priceless...I recommend Harvest to all of my friends, neighbors, and colleagues because of the impeccable care, support, and service that I've received since day one. I trust the staff and know that my son's every need is being met. More importantly, Ms. Lynette is constantly seeking ways to enhance the center - fresh vibrant paint in each classroom, wonderful expansion to the waddler room, and additional safety measures added to the playground. She has a clear vision and the children, parents, and staff see it, feel it, and benefit from it! My son is happy, confident, and exceeds all developmental milestones because of the individual attention and care provided by the Harvest staff. Kudos to Ms. Lynette for creating a safe and nurturing learning environment that allows for children to thrive and also provides parents great comfort! Thank you!

I have had 2 Children at HLC and both received top quality care. My son was in the infant room and is now in the 2 year old class. While in the infant room his teachers were outstanding with his care. He had several illnesses that his providers helped me take care of. I do realize, however, that their hands are somewhat tied as to the amount of care they can give while a child is sick. The state holds them to strict standards that I am grateful for. That way when he was healthy I didn't have to worry about other children making him sick again. The teachers were outstanding in making sure that he is educated and has fun while learning. I think that parents that don't want to engage with their child and might want to send their child to school while they are ill might need to look into a nanny service. Better for everyone!!!
I could not disagree more with the previous review. I have two children at Harvest Learning Center, my oldest in the preschool classroom and will be starting kindergarten in the fall. He has been a student at Harvest for 2 ½ years. My youngest started out in the infant room at 4 months of age and is now almost 2 years old. Harvest Learning Center is a nurturing, stimulating, and most importantly loving home away from home for my children. The director, Lynette Mitchell, is an amazingly passionate woman who lives everyday to fulfill the mission of Harvest: to nurture the mind, body, and spirit of every child. Lynette and the teachers are extremely approachable and have ALWAYS responded promptly and effectively to all of my concerns and have truly connected with my children on a very personal level. I love the emails that are sent by Lynette and the teachers to tell me funny little anecdotes about my children that have happened during the day. Not only have my children grown developmentally at Harvest - they know their ABCs, numbers, and are even learning Spanish - they are thriving emotionally. I give my highest recommendations for Harvest Learning Center to my friends and colleagues looking for quality childcare.
Harvest staff consistently provides such a quality, wonderful experience for my two children that I would NEVER think of sending them anywhere else. No amount that we do for the staff will be enough to thank them for the care and love each and every one devotes to each child at Harvest. The center directors are fair, bend over backwards to accommodate parents' needs, and encourage openness and communication in a way I have not seen in any other childcare facility. I have and will recommend Harvest with absolutely no reservations as a place where the whole child is nurtured - mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally.
I love the level of care and awsome instruction that my child recieves on a daily basis at Harvest Learning Center. The staff are always very pleasant and exceed their professional standards. My child is doing great with the provided curriculum, along with his well rounded teachers who guide and stimulate his learning experiences. If you are looking for excellent care and a nurturing enviornment for your child(ren), Harvest is a great place to start your journey.
Setting up childcare for our first child was the most stressful part of my pregnancy. However, from the first day that we brought our son in to the infant room @ Harvest Learning Center we have been thrilled with the care that he has received. Our son is now just over 2 years old and he loves Harvest as much as we do. Each day I drop him off he is happy and ready to go! I never imagined that working full time with a young child would work as well as it has for our family. We owe it all to Harvest Learning Center.
