Child Care Testimonials

From our parents:

"I really like getting the daily sheet that tells me how my child ate, her bathroom progress and if anything is needed for me to bring in; I also like the notebook that is in her cubby that will outline some days when my daughter has had a great day or what she liked to do during the day."

"One thing we really appreciate about Farmington Children's Center is my child's teachers and how welcome he feels there. My child has a hard time leaving the ones he's close to. Everyone in the class and all the teachers love him and he loves them. He looks forward to going to school and it makes us happy to know he's in a safe, friendly and happy environment. More than anything we're glad he's there doing things a 3 year old should be doing."
