My daughter has attended Hills and Dales Childcare since she was born, and I couldn’t be more thrilled with our experience. The staff is fantastic! From classroom teachers to building leaders, the environment is extremely positive, helpful and supportive. My daughter has learned so much in her three years at Hills and Dales. She has made great friends, tremendous memories and amazing role models. It is very daunting as a parent to leave your child with others during the work day, but the confidence and experiences we have had at Hills and Dales puts my mind at ease, my daughter has a school family that cares about her!
Hills and Dales staff continue to impress us each year. In the Little Lions’ room, Amela was such a devoted teacher to our little girl. She planned a variety of daily activities including fun arts projects, songs, and outdoor activities. It was never a surprise to see Amela actively playing with the kids outside. She has boundless energy, enthusiasm, and patience. It was hard when the time came to move to a new room, as our daughter loved the Lions’ room so much and ran each morning to hug Amela. But we were extremely pleased that as she moved to the next room, the Moving Monkeys, the teachers were just as dedicated. Raizel offered a lot of structure to help the children gain independence and confidence as they grew. She had plans that allowed the children to play both independently and socially. And our daughter formed an extremely strong bond with Ms. Tina, and we heard many stories about her all year. Tina offered a warm hug each morning, and always offered words of praise for the kids. Now, our daughter is in the Hippo room, and she has wonderful teachers led by Ms. Kayla. They’ve helped her transition to her new room, and are encouraging her to learn and grow. We are looking forward to another year at Hills and Dales.
