My daughter has been at this daycare since 2009 (9 weeks old, she is now 3). All the staff has been great since day one! My daughther has not had all the teachers but yet they all know her and know our names and constantly say wonderful things about her. They have also taught her so much, so many people think she is older than she is because of her wonderful speech and her knowledge, I tell them her daycare contributes alot to that. Some of the staff has even told me my daughter is like family and thats a great feeling. We used to live down the street and had relocated quite some distance about a year ago, but I didnt want to change her daycare and was willing to sacrafice my time and commute just to get her there!

My son has been attending this daycare since 2009. Our family has loved the location, the staff, and the prices. Tracy and Jennifer, the directors, are always there to answer questions, and they offer assurance and comfort to those first time moms who leave their baby that first day. My son has been prepared for Kindergarten, and he was potty trained in 3 months with the help of his teacher. We love the staff. Even though my son has not had all of the teachers, they know our names and always offer us a cheerful greeting. The staff makes you feel as if you are part of their family, and it really matters when you are handing over your precious little one to them. You know they are going to take great care of them.

My son has attended CCN 127 for a year now. This summer, he moved into the three-year-old room. One night before bed, he told me "Mommy, 'goodnight' and 'goodbye' almost sound the same." When I asked him if his teachers taught him that, he told me that Ms. Candy showed him how words sound the same. Then he went onto give me a list of words that either rhymed or began with the same letter. As a mom, I was thrilled at how much he has grown and so proud of him. As a kindergarten teacher of 13 years, I was even more thrilled that his teachers are already establishing a solid foundation of early literacy skills. We are very happy to be a part of the CNN family!
