Parent Testimonials

There is no greater compliment than to have parents tell us how much they love Growing Room. Parents tell us their children are advancing so much through what they’re learning – that they don’t want to leave Growing Room at the end of the day and can’t wait to come back.
Several parents generously took time to tell us what Growing Room means to them. Here are their stories.

Written Testimonials

Growing Room Butterfly“As a new mother, my first concern was finding somewhere I would feel comfortable leaving my son. From the moment I entered the growing room I was in awe of the clean, bright and friendly atmosphere. When four members of the staff stayed almost two hours late on a Friday evening to finish our tour, interact with my son and answer [all] of my questions, my husband and I thought “this is too good to be true.” I can honestly say, the growing room has surpassed my initial impression. Not only is the atmosphere clean and inviting, but the staff are extremely knowledgeable regarding each individual child’s needs and there is a very open line of communication. The care that is provided is genuine and consistent, leaving me with peace of mind regarding my son’s well-being in my absence.
A special note in regards to Mr. Bob and Miss Laura – It is especially comforting to know that there is always a capable director available to answer and guide any questions.  They are not only involved in the managerial role, but also in the direct care of the children. They radiate a true passion for the care they provide that gives a new mother, such as myself, a reassurance that is invaluable.” – Sara

Growing Room Butterfly“My son attended daycare/preschool at the Growing Room on a full-time basis from the time he was 15 months old till it was time for Kindergarten. Mr. Bob, Miss Laura and the team became an extension of our family during this time and made a very safe and clean environment for our growing boy. It is definitely more structured than some other day cares, which we loved and is one of the reasons we chose the Growing Room. The summer programs are packed with fun and our son was a happy boy at the end of each day. We would strongly recommend The Growing Room to any parent that is looking for a safe and clean environment for their children to learn in.” –  Tobe & Kim R.

Growing Room ButterflyMy son has been enrolled at The Growing Room in Berlin for almost two years now.  I can promise you that the learning experience will make you feel like you’re a part of one huge family. The staff does everything in their power to remind all families that they are all loved and appreciated. Each teacher comes to work ready to make learning fun.  The management is very reliable and makes you feel comfortable leaving your child in their care. Great classrooms and great teaching activities for young children.
The Growing Room is one of the best centers I’ve ever been to.  The facility is well taken care of and clean!  The playground area is maintained very well and has lots of fun activities for the kids.  Highly recommended! –  Agnes & Sedat

Growing Room ButterflyBoth of our children attend Growing Room and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. We are able to work full time with the security of knowing that our children are happy and in safe and capable hands. Our daughter has been enrolled since 11 months old (now 4) and our son since 12 weeks old (now 2). The faculty and staff are always welcoming, knowledgeable and responsive to our needs as a family.
First and foremost, our children are so well cared for by teachers who truly welcome them, love them, and want to see them succeed. The curriculum is fantastic and we are constantly impressed with all of the new academic, social, and motor skills our children learn during their days at Growing Room. The facility itself is top-notch and provides so many different opportunities to foster growth in our children. There are a host of extracurricular events and activities that range from monthly Parent’s Night Out to optional weekly gymnastics classes. We are so thankful Growing Room is a part of our village! –  Annie & Matt

Growing Room ButterflyWe became a Growing Room Family in August 2014 when our youngest was 11 months old. My husband and I had been looking for a change in our daycare situation and made the decision to enroll our daughter after touring the facility. We were very impressed with all of the staff, the number of readily accessible, developmentally appropriate toys/activities, and the cleanliness of the building. Every staff member has taken the initiative to get to know our daughter over the years and every morning we leave her smiling, as she feels very safe and secure in this school. This summer, we leave to transition to Kindergarten, and already find ourselves planning visits back. We will truly miss our Growing Room family. Enrolling our daughter here was the best choice for our family! –  Kim & Peter

Growing Room Butterfly“My two sons have been attending The Growing Room since February 2014. As most parents, I never wanted to have to utilize any child care services aside from family members, but when it came time for us to start thinking of facilities we did a lot of research and decided on The Growing Room. This center has more than met my expectations of what a great child care facility should be. My sons are 3 and 1 and they have already learned so much and have made a lot of amazing friends. The curriculum always engages them and I am never worried that they are bored or unhappy while at school. The staff goes above and beyond and both my husband and I feel relieved to know that our boys are being cared for in a manner that we would do if we could stay home with them. Aside from the staff, the building and all of its rooms are always so clean and well cared for it gives us such peace of mind. Thanks so much Growing Room staff, you guys are the best!” – Danielle & Kyle

Growing Room Butterfly“My oldest son started at Growing Room when he was just 2.5 years old.  He has since graduated from GR and moved on to Elementary School.  It was once he started Kindergarten 2 years ago the feedback I got from his teacher on how advanced he was for his age.  I knew credit was deserved to all the teachers he had here.  He continues to flourish as he heads off to 2nd grade.  He still spends his summers here in the school age program and absolutely loves it!  Not all kids get excited to have to go to school all summer, but he does because he knows how much fun he has.
My youngest has attended Growing Room since he was 9 weeks old, he is now 2.5 years old and I can already see that he is headed in the same direction as his big brother.  The bonds he has formed with his caregivers is unreal and calming.  As a parent to know that both my precious “babies” are learning and getting love and attention even though my husband and I have to work is so reassuring.” – Carissa & Ryan

Growing Room Butterfly“I moved my kids 2 years ago to Growing Room, and what I like about them was that they had a good curriculum and they actually helped kids to mature; little I know that I would become a fan of everybody in the school, from the cook giving the kids a variety of food ( other than PB&J ), to the administrator staff which always made sure I had all my questions answered at all times, and the teachers, every teacher that my kids have had, have done nothing but encourage my kids to be better students, sparking science, to ask questions, to be aware of nature, to not be afraid, and also better persons by helping them interact with other kids.. I will be forever appreciative of every staff member.” – Ana M.

Growing Room Butterfly“Our three children have all attended Growing Room over the last two years and we have been so happy with our experience there! Our daughter attended two days a week of pre-K and we are confident she is prepared for kindergarten. Our sons have attended the toddler rooms and preschool at Growing Room. Their teachers have always been friendly and caring, and have such fun activities planned and plenty of playtime. We love that the meals were provided, not only because we didn’t have to pack a lunch, but our picky eaters would be opened up to different foods and eat more when they were eating with their friends. We loved the jobs the kids got during the day to reinforce responsibility and make it fun. They have awesome activities for the whole school every year like Trunk or Treat and Around the World night. Our daughter just had her graduation from Growing Room and she (and we) will truly miss her teachers. You could tell the dedication they have and the love that went into the graduation ceremony for the kids and parents too!” – Frances & George

Growing Room Butterfly“We have had an amazing experience at Growing Room thus far. Angelo struggled with serious separation anxiety when we first started at Growing Room. However, after some individualized planning, love, and kindness from the teachers and staff, Angelo now LOVES going to school. I’m very pleased to I know that my son is being cared for daily by such lovely people. I’m thankful for all the patience and understanding that has been given to Angelo.” – Jessica & Anthony
