“We couldn’t be more pleased with The Growing Patch! Melissa and her team have hearts of gold and the imaginations to keep little kids engaged and excited. They provide the perfect blend of structure and free play for kids to learn through experience. Teachers foster independence and offer support when needed.

Because this is a relatively small center it’s easy to connect with teachers for updates, schedule changes, reminders, and tidbits of information about the day. We went through a challenging year of transitions finding childcare and are so fortunate and grateful to have The Growing Patch open up right around the corner! More importantly, our son lights up as soon as we start to pull in each day <3″

“From the very beginning, Melissa, Allison, Kelly, Natalie, and the rest of the Growing Patch family provided my children with an amazing amount of support. They showed them constant patience, understanding, and kindness. This allowed me to return to work with confidence that each of my children had been cared for, nurtured, and loved.

As a result of Melissa’s leadership and guidance, my children look forward to childcare each day. They return home singing new songs, learning new skills and abilities, and chatting about what amazing adventures they have had.

Melissa’s staff is phenomenal and engaging, and they shine under her guidance and leadership each and every day. I am so grateful to The Growing Patch for providing a wonderful home away from home to my children and for giving them the opportunity to grow into such wonderful little people!”

“I truly couldn’t be anymore impressed with The Growing Patch! The learning and hands on activities that happen everyday always blow me away!

My kids have learned so much since they have been there not only academically but socially too. Being greeted with a smile every morning makes my kids feel so welcome and I am able to go to work with confidence that my children will be taken care of at the highest quality.

You can tell the teachers love their jobs and are so passionate about their work!”
