Rave Reviews from Our Families

We are so lucky to have amazing families and GUESS WHAT, the feeling is mutual. Read on! Thank you families for sharing your child with us!

Dear Families,

“Having my girls at Memories & Milestones has been amazing! They have taught them so many things such as sign language, colors, letter and numbers. They are also helping so much with my 2 year olds potty training. I don’t think of it as a daycare, I think of it as a school and am very confident that my children will be advanced once they go to school because of the many things they have learned already. The staff is so friendly & helpful all the time!!! I have recommended many friends to Memories & Milestones, and would recommend them to anyone I know who is looking for child care.”

Dear Family,

“Our girls recently started Memories & Milestones Academy and we have had nothing but a positive experience. The classrooms are great space for learning and play. The teachers take that extra step to make sure our children are well cared for. On more than one occasion Memories & Milestones Academy has printed out helpful literature for us to use at home. They even printed out a book the girls read at school, to off some consistency in the girls learning. As parents, we enjoy hearing about all the different activities they do and the friends they play with each day. We receive a monthly calendar that lets us know the types of activities the girls are doing, we love seeing all the art projects they get to bring home. We would definitely recommend Memories & Milestones Academy to any family, it’s a great place for children to learn and play; and provides a welcomed sense of security for the parents, knowing our children are being well cared for.”
