.

My name is Mike Finn and I have been lucky enough to have both of my girls go through the ABCD Daycare program. On more than one occasion the teachers there have taken time during busy play filled days to send me pictures of my girls smiles. It is the little things such as this that make ABCD such a special place for your child to grow. I do not just consider ABCD a daycare, but more of an extension of my own home and family, a place that my girls will learn the fundamentals of schooling and interacting with others. These traits are so important during the formative years in a young child's life and they are sure to be instilled in them by spending time at this love filled home away from home. I would highly recommend ABCD to any parent that is looking for a safe, happy, educationally minded, love filled family to look after their little ones while life's demands take us away from our children for the day. Much Love to Mrs. Chris and the WHOLE CREW at ABCD for making their daycare such a special place to be. Sincerely, Mike FINN

My name is Ms. Betsy. I have worked at ABCD for over 20 years. It has been and still is one of the greatest experience of my life. Mr. Andy and Ms. Chris provide an environment to not only educate children, but to give them a safe and happy place to be each and everyday! Their ability to staff high quality teachers and provide help and support for each family and run the business end of the deal, is something that can not be taught! It has to come from inside! And they have that special something! :-) Over the years I have witnessed so much love and caring from Ms. Chris and Mr. Andy to families and children here at ABCD, that it warms my heart. I know I am a better teacher and person, from being a part of this wonderful place.
The false accusations of " Joe D " only lead me to believe that after caring for his children for almost 3 years, and after he ran up a large bill, he chose to take the low road.
Our reputation stands as the best preschool in town and I am blessed to be a part of it!!!

Joe D - That review is straight slander. You should be ashamed of yourself.

My child attended ABCD from age 2 until she started public school for kindergarten. During this time, it was obvious that she was thriving, learning, and well taken care of. She began kindergarten prepared both socially and academically. In fact, she met the requirements to pass kindergarten by the first trimester. A child does not make this kind of progress by watching TV most of the day. Also, the multitude of finished crafts/projects on the wall and in the take home folders are not conducive with a day spent watching television.

The rest of your accusations are absurd and laughable even. ABCD has earned a solid and highly esteemed reputation in this community, and rightly so. The amount of positive referrals, number of families who enroll children for many consecutive years, enrollment that spans across generations (parents who were students themselves enrolling their children), and the longevity of the staff speaks for itself.

My son has attended ABCD for 3 years now. He LOVES it! He looks forward to the days that he gets to go to school and when I ask him what the favorite part of his day was he says, "school". He has learned SO much at ABCD, I love hearing him telling me about all of the sounds that the letters make and he is already recognizing certain words. I am very impressed with all of the projects that he comes home with and he is so proud to tell my husband and I all about them. All of the staff at ABCD hold a special place in my heart because I know that they take such good care of my child and they truly care about him. I recommend ABCD to anybody that asks me about childcare. I do always tell them to plan ahead and call early though because they usually have a waiting list to get in because EVERYBODY loves it there and once they start at ABCD they stay there because it is so good! Looking forward to my daughter attending ABCD once she turns two! Can't say enough good things about ABCD!!!

This daycare deserves far beyond a 5 star. My oldest has went to this daycare for 3 years now and my husband and I both LOVE it here. The teachers have been amazing with our daughter. The owners are wonderful people and would NEVER harm a child. Each class/teacher works hard at TEACHING our children, arts, crafts, science projects, letters, numbers, math, reading, music (I love all the songs my daughter comes home singing), and most importantly how to be individuals. I feel that all the teachers, including the owners, LOVE my child as if she were there own. My daughter LOVES to go to school and that says a lot about the daycare. I am very heart broken that someone would write such horrible words about ABCD and the staff. I feel like ALL the staff and owners are like family! They treat our kids like family and do the most AMAZING things with and for the children. I truly can't wait until my youngest is old enough to join the ABCD family!! THANKS ABCD FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION TO OUR CHILDREN. YOU ARE AMAZING!

I can honestly rate this school a 5 star because I work there and it is amazing in every sense of the word. I have worked in various child care centers before all of which abused the children physically, mentally and emotionally. After I left my last place of work because of such happenings I vowed to never work for a place where the children were harmed in anyway... Now Im at ABCD and every child, parent and family is LOVED! It is such an amazing place to work with such amazing people to work for. No one there has ever or would ever "tie children to chairs" and we certainly do not "sit them in front of the tv for hours on end". None of the staff nor director has ever or would ever harm a child. Every teacher is so busy everyday doing art, sensory, science projects and truly loving their students. It bothers me that someone would make up such outrageous accusations. It not only is demeaning to my character as well as my co-teachers but it demeans the integrity of the owners and that of the parents that bring their children there everyday. We all LOVE our children and would do anything for any of our families. The teachers are amazing and the owners have poured their heart and soul into ABCD to ensure that it is a place for QUALITY care where kids can come and be LOVED. ABCD has been family owned and operated for about 50 years now and because the need for quality childcare is so great and ABCD can offer that they are now opening another center.I am so blessed to LOVE where I work, LOVE my families, LOVE the people I work for, and LOVE the staff. My greatest hope is that those inquiring about our school will know the truth because we would love to have your family as a part of ours. :-)

I cannot consciously rate this daycare even 1 star but I must according to this site. The owner of this daycare... or should I say the spouse of the individual who inherited this daycare is nothing more than a foolish, loud, abusive, uneducated high school drop out. If you are truly considering this daycare please ask yourself the following questions: 1. are you okay with classroom ratios constantly over exceeding the state maximum by 5+ every day? 2. For discipline are you okay with your child being tied to a chair? 3. During time of walking between buildings are you okay with your child being physically pushed and yelled at (by said owner) to walk faster? 4. If you are a parent who is concerned with your childs health then you should not believe a word they tell you about their nutrious meals. All white bread, water down top raman and aging milk. 5. Finally ask yourself if you want your child to be placed in front of a television two thirds of the day. In case your having a hard time figuring out that percentage Mrs. Daycare inherited owner that is 66.6% of the day children are placed in front of the Television are your daycare. When considering a daycare please do your homework! When I personally confronted a teacher about an issue they said "if that made you upset, I would not what to see how you would react if I told you what really goes on here". Again protect your children and keep them from this place.

I seen bad reviews on this place on the internet but I thought I would check it out to see for my self because it was so close to my house. The owner, Kris was her name, was rude to me when I checked in after being on a waiting list for 3 months and when I went down there to meet her for the first time she was rude to me again. She acted like she did need my business because she has been in business for 40 years in the same spot. WOW! I own a business my self and I dont see how she keeps the doors open with that attitude. I wonder how she treats the kids if she acts like this to me ?!?!? I am not sure how she runs her business but clearly she needs to take a class or two her school is teaching her kids about respect. I don't suggest this daycare to any parent.
