TESTOMONIALS FROM PARENTS OF ENROLLED CHILDREN
"My son and daughter have been enrolled in My New Friend's Child Development Home for the last
3 years. My son recently tested for placement in kindergarten class for a recent school. His scores were well above average and the test administrator attributed the results to the fantastic educational
focus of My New Friend's Child Development Home. Most importantly, however, My New Friends has earned my trust and admiration and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for high-quality childcare. "

"I have had my daughter at My New Friends since she was 3 months old. She is now 2 years old. Although it was hard to leave her that first day, I have never questioned leaving her there since. Hanna treats my daughter like one of her own and I know she is always in good hands. I am amazed at how my daughter has grown and flourished at My New Friends. I can't even compare My New Friends to any other daycare I have ever heard of. It is the best of both worlds. It provides the comfort of home with a loving and caring caregiver and the structure and learning curriculm of a daycare center. My daughter is almost potty trained, knows all of her letters and colors, and knows most of her shapes and numbers. I have seen Hanna work with kids that are behind and struggling to try and catch them up to where they should be for their age. What daycare does that? My New Friends is AMAZING and I would recommend them to anyone! Everyday my daughter asks me if she can go to school tomorrow. "
