Anastasia: Tanya’s Daycare was a home away from home for our daughters. She always created a warm, safe, and fun environment for my children to learn and thrive. We love Tanya!
Katie: Finding quality child care can be challenging and scary. From our initial meeting, my husband and I were impressed with Tanya’s abilities as an infant/toddler caregiver and wanted our infant daughter to be in her care.
I appreciate that Tanya continually takes classes on early childhood education to keep abreast of developments in the field, which she incorporates into her practice; her philosophy of play-based learning –no drills on letters, etc.; the nutritious meals and snacks she serves (my daughter eats beets, at least while at day care); the love and nurturing she gives to all the children in her care.
Tanya took care of my daughter from 3 months through 20 months. My daughter loved being with Tanya so much that she often did not want to leave at the end of the day. Tanya moved, so we switched providers due to location. When my daughter saw Tanya again about a month later and clung tightly to her; it made me cry because I could see how much she loved Tanya and missed her. Long story short: you would be lucky to have Tanya work with your child during this crucial time of their life.
Vivian: Tanya cares for our youngest son from age 6 months to today – 5 years. She has been one of our greatest blessings in life. Having 4 sons and as dual working parents, we have used a variety of different childcare options over the last 10+years. Tanya has been by far the most professional and loving care provider we have ever encountered. She is respectful, kind, knowledgeable and safety conscious.
Tanya consistently works on expanding her expertise and skills and participates in continuing education opportunities. She is a superb communicator and is respectful of parent input and integrates this input fully as able. Tanya is joyful and fun and her sincere love for children is apparent in all her interactions. Our youngest misses her deeply as he heads off to kindergarten but we are 100% confident she prepared him well. We will all miss her. She became family. The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.
All children should have time for play. It is the building blocks for establishing confidence, coping abilities, flexibility and positive interactions with others.
