Four years ago when we came for a tour of the Patch, little did we know at the time we would be touring a place that ended up being the perfect fit for our boys and our family. A place filled with love, kindness, understanding and fun. A place which fostered the love of learning in our children, and allowed for wonderful connections with peers and teachers for them.A place that when our family fell in crisis, surrounded us with extra love and support we are forever grateful for. A place, that was willing to fight the fight with us to ensure Henry got all that he needed for his health issues and disabilities. The Pumpkin Patch will forever hold a place in our family's hearts. And though it is time for our boys to move on, we are all forever changed for the better, because we knew you. -2018
We can't thank you enough for the amazing experience you have provided our daughter with. She had such a great time in the classroom thanks to all of you. As first time parents, it's a scary decision to decide where to leave your child. We are so happy that we chose Pumpkin Patch! We never dropped off or picked up our daughter upset. She sincerely loved "school". The way you all treated her and cared for her like she was your own, meant so much to us. She really grew over the course of the time she was in your care. She went from a baby to an outgoing little girl. We will all miss you and the center but, we will never forget her classroom experiences.
Choosing the right childcare is a hard but important decision. From the moment I dropped my son off at Pumpkin Patch when he was 12 weeks old, I have never once looked back and questioned my choice to send him here. It is a safe, structured, and loving place to be and it is a home away from home for both my children, who are currently enrolled in the toddler room and the three-year-old room. They are excited when I drop them off and still have a big smile on their faces when we pick them up. Chris only hires the absolute best, and everyone that works here has become our second family. We are so lucky and thankful to have found Pumpkin Patch and we absolutely recommend them to everyone. -2020
We have been a part of the Patch family for over 11 years, currently with our youngest two enrolled. One of the most striking elements of experiencing the Patch is the warm, friendly, caring environment – you truly become part of the Patch family. Walking through the door, you’re greeted with a smile and it feels more like home than like an institution. It’s a welcoming atmosphere, which is wonderful for little ones.
Not only is the environment rich with kindness, but also respect and a true value of education. Each child is valued as an individual and as part of the class. Children at the Patch are taught to respect others and themselves, they are encouraged to express themselves in healthy ways, and they are always learning and playing through fun, age appropriate, engaging activities.
I am so grateful for everything the Patch offers my children, the individual needs of each child are always considered and held as important. I have a true appreciation for the wonderful teachers who put so much effort in to making sure my children are well taken care of, loved, and educated.-2020
Our 3 kids attended Pumpkin Patch until we moved out of state. They are truly an amazing center full of kind, nurturing educators that not only care for your children but go above and beyond everyday. The first comments I received from our new daycare center was “where did your kids learn all of their amazing manors? They are so kind and are such good helpers!”....they learned it from The Patch. We miss Chris and her team but keep in contact with them regularly. Thanks you for being such a “home away from home” for our crazy kids! -2019
AMAZING, is the first word that comes to mind when I think about where our son attends daycare. The thought of sending your child to a daycare “center” can be frightening. I promise you Pumpkin Patch is top notch. Although Pumpkin Patch is a center, the small environment provides a very family-oriented feel. All the children and teachers know each other by name.
Our son started to attend Pumpkin Patch 2 months prior to the COVID outbreak. The “Patch” has been so supportive and helpful throughout this entire, trying time . The communication and updated processes/procedures have been clear and concise. The staff takes the cleanliness of the facility and the health of the staff/children very seriously, with utmost high priority.
Chris and her staff are very knowledgeable. They know how to handle all the different situations that can arise in a daycare and ensure that your child makes leaps and bounds in development while under their care.
Our son is so excited to go to school everyday to see his friends and teachers. The activities they do daily are age appropriate and challenging. Every week my husband and I are amazed at new developments our son has made. It is such relief to know our child is under great care and in a happy environment while we are at work! -2021
