"I can not say enough about how pleased my husband and I are about the care our children have
received at Dandelion. Our children, Nathan and Morgan, have been attending DCCC for about 2 1/2
years. They enjoy attending class and spending time with their friends each day. My husband and I look
forward to hearing about their daily activities and the kids are eager to tell us. Morgan at 3 was already
recognizing letters and numbers. The staff at DCCC are wonderful. My husband and I enjoy the
parenting classes, picnics and of course the Parent's Night Out :) I would highly recommend DCCC to
other parents and would be willing to talk to anyone if they have questions."
"Our daughter, Casey, looks forward to each and every day at Dandelion. We have noticed tremendous
development in her writing, letter and number identification, art and social skills since we began the
program nearly a year ago. The providers at Dandelion are cheerful, energetic, caring and thoughtful.
My wife and I can concentrate on our workday, knowing that Casey is safe and happy."
"From the very first tear-filled, anxious-ridden, clearly uncomfortable drop off to her proud-smile, bright
eyes, and confident part in the Pre-K graduation program. Thank you for the positive role you've taken in
my daughter's life. Thank you, everyone at Dandelion, for always providing my daughter a safe,
comfortable, secure, nurturing and education oriented atmosphere. I can't imagine her being anywhere
else. You've made a world of difference to me, and helped give the world to her. We look forward to many
more years of growing at Dandelion!"
"Dandelion had created a wonderful place of learning for their students to flourish. I recently graduated
and will begin teaching middle school in the fall, so as a fellow educator I have great respect for the time
and care that the teachers put into their classrooms. Thanks to their dedicated care Daniel has closed
the gap between himself and his peers, and he continues to progress. The resources found at the center
far outweigh any that I have seen at other childcare centers, and the relationships Daniel has built at
Dandelion are irreplaceable. I look forward to many years with Dandelion—they are simply the best."
"It is comforting to know my daughter is cared for by such wonderful people. She is not merely kept safe
and fed while I am at work, she is nurtured and engaged. In addition to the wonderful childcare provided
at Dandelion, events and workshops are regularly held. I try not to miss an opportunity to learn more
about how to be the best parent I can be, and Sue’s workshops are wonderful. I highly recommend
Dandelion Christian Child Care to anyone who is looking for childcare and is passionate about their child’
s total well-being."
"As an elementary school teacher, and a part-time Early Childhood Instructor, I am aware of the social,
emotional and educational needs of young children. Dandelion meets and exceeds the standards for a
developmentally appropriate environment in every way. The staff continually works to improve their skills
and knowledge. They greet the children and parents with smiles and kind words that make the transitions
easier for both. The director and program administrator are also very knowledgeable, and are always
available to address questions or concerns."
"Our daughter has learned so much since starting at Dandelion. Every day she comes home with
wonderful things to tell or show us. The staff always go out of their way to make my daughter as well as
ourselves feel very comfortable. Any staff member will acknowledge us whenever we are in the building
and that makes a parent feel very welcome. They are so pleasant and accommodating. We know our
daughter is safe from the moment we drop her off until the moment we walk through the door to pick her
up. I highly recommend Dandelion to anyone that needs daycare/pre-school services."
"We could not be more pleased with Dandelion Christian Child Care. Both of our boys attend and we
absolutely love it. The moment we walked in, we could see and “feel” the difference compared to other
daycare facilities. The communication between the Dandelion staff and the parents is excellent. They are
kind, energetic and thoughtful. Some mornings I found it harder for me to leave than the boys did!
It is so comforting to know that our boys are not only safe and well cared for, but are nurtured in a positive
environment. Dandelion definitely holds true to their mission statement! Thank you Dandelion for the
comfort and peace of mind that you give David and I!"
"My husband Todd and I have been so happy this year with the care and instruction Emily and Jacob
receive. I am amazed at how much Jacob has learned with Ms. Jen and Ms. Jenn!! He knows all of his
letters and sounds now, and his numbers through 10. I even started working with him at home with
learning to read. He's so ready for it!! It's amazing! They do a wonderful job with him and the other
children. He loves school. We are also very happy with how patient and loving the 2's staff has been with
Emily. It took her awhile to adjust to a new school and routine, having not been to a daycare facility
before, but she no longer cries when I leave her and talks about her friends at "school" all the time. :-)
*Note: Educare Learning Center is formerly known as Dandelion Child Care which is referred
to in some of these testimonials from parents.
"Educare will always have a special place in my family's heart. We have had the joy of watching our two
children benefit from the caring, nurturing staff and the curriculum in the four-year old preschool program.
My oldest, a graduate of the 2009 pre-k class, just completed Kindergarten and is reading above grade
level. I know this achievement stems from the emphasis of letters and their sounds that she received
during her preschool year at Educare. She was given a solid foundation for beginning school that I will
always be grateful for. My son, a graduate of the 2010 pre-k class, went to Kindergarten registration a
couple months ago and was handed a ring of cards that had colors, shapes and numbers 1-10. As the
teachers and I were going through the paperwork, he started saying what each card was. In amazement,
the teachers listened to him and when he was done they asked where he went to preschool. I told them
he went to Educare and they were very impressed with his confidence and knowledge. We are very
grateful for what Educare has provided our children, both educationally and socially, and know that our
children will continue to flourish throughout their lives because of the foundation they received there."

"I wanted to thank the staff at Educare. The Educare Team did a great job over the last three years with
my son. It was comforting to know that I could drop him off at a place that I knew would take good care of

"As we reflect on the child care we had for our children since they started, we truly treasure our
experience at Educare. Our prior experience could in no way compare to your center. The center is made
up of wonderfully dedicated and caring teachers who are focused on making the children's time the best it
can be. We were very fortunate to have found you and thoroughly enjoyed the six plus years.
Thank you for all you did and will continue to do for all of the families you serve. You touched our lives in
a way we will never forget and will always treasure. This includes our whole family. Without a doubt, we
know Jack and Paige will lovingly reflect on their time at Dandelion/Educare as they grow older."
