I cannot express the appreciation and peace of mind we had sending our daughter to Mary Jo's program. This was our first experience with childcare and I was comfortable immediately! Our daughter came home happy everyday after playing and learning at Mary Jo's. A change in jobs meant a change in childcare for us and we will miss and always be grateful for the time our daughter spent there! Highly Recommend!
Dear Mary Jo:
Last night we received Lauren's end of the year testing scores showing her growth from the beginning to end of the 2015-2016 year. What can I say, you guys have set our daughter up for such success with a huge head start. When we started school her reading was in the 91 percentile, and finished in the 81 percentile, way above average, and way above the district level. Her Math is outstanding she stared in the 78 percentile and ended in the 83 percentile. She knew all her letters, numbers up to 100, how to count by 10's, 5's and some 2's all before she entered Kindergartner. Her teachers were so pleased with her, and how much she already knew she quickly became a helper. By the end of the year she was taking kids out in the hall to help with reading and math.
Brad and I couldn't give you enough praise. As a young child I struggled with reading and hated to read. Not Lauren since you guys instilled reading at a young age she loves to read, and reads every night before going to bed.
Thank you for all your hard work and truly caring for the children, we are forever grateful!
"When the time came to find a proper day care for my daughter Hailey I was so stressed trying to find someone I could trust. For weeks I searched for someone and everyone I looked up had special investigation reports and failed assesments. But finally I found Mary Jo! She is the best provider I have ever found I doubt I can trust anyone else as much as her with my daughter. She provides the proper routine, attention, learning activities, interactions and just all around safe place for my daughter. She was instrumental in potty training! I was very sad when I moved as was my daughter because this was the best environment for my daughter! She grew so much when she was there. So if your looking for a day care, I am so serious when I tell you that you will never find anyone so involved and caring with the kids. My daughter still asks about Mary Jo's house, we both miss her. You will never regret leaving your child in her care. THANK YOU MARY JO!" - Kari B.
"I never once had to worry about the professional care and love my girls received when they were with Mary Jo. Selecting a good daycare can be very stressful. I am so happy I was referred to her and now I refer my friends. My kids are in school now, but have wonderful memories of their time with Mary Jo." - Jackie Reamer
"My daughter Shaylon was with Buds N Blooms from an infant until she started kindergarten. She's now in 1st grade and 6 yrs old and still wants to see Mary Jo! My daughter came out saying ABC's and counting and was always looked after and treated as she was their own. I never hesitate to tell someone that needs good care about Mary Jo! :)" - Stacey Roslund
"Twenty-two years ago, my daughter, O'Malley, was Mary Jo's very first daycare child. Two years later, she took in my second daughter. We still keep in touch and are very much a part of each other's lives after all these years. I felt very confident, as a first time mom, leaving my girls with Buds and Blooms." -Shelly King
"Mary Jo and Donna take amazing care of my son. Drew has a few extra medical requirements, and he is cared for very well. My son loves going there every morning." -Donna Barr
"Our daughter loves Mary Jo and going to daycare with her and Donna! I'm not sure I could go to work if we hadn't found this daycare. Can't say enough good things!" - Vicky Pack
"I couldn't ask for a better daycare for my daughter. The staff at Buds and Blooms is like family to us. Our daughter looks forward to the days when she goes to "Mary Jo's house". Thank you Buds and Blooms for making the transition on being a working mom so easy on both my daughter and mom. -Teresa Nichols
"Buds and Blooms is one of the best daycare in TC. The staff take the kids in as though they are family. The kids learn, play, and grow everyday." -Michelle Marsh
