I can honestly say I agree with all the comments!!! You are truly a remarkable person and such a blessing for parents looking for a safe and nurturing "second home" for their children...Isaiah still talks about you and his "friends" from hi...s first school and that speaks volume on the impact you had on him at such a young age! I pray everything continues to go well with you and your family and the daycare!!!! Any parent reading this : this is a PHENOMENAL WOMAN, NURTURER and EDUCATOR!!! Take care hun xoxo Melissa and Isaiah : Bronx, NY ;)

My husband and I had been looking for a while for a daycare that we felt offered the essentials of an outstanding care environment for our son. After several months of looking, and after several meetings with other providers, Gandaroo Kids seemed to be the perfect match. Our son loves it and I don't worry about him when I drop him off for his day of fun. I highly recommend Gandaroo Kids Daycare!

My husband and I were in the search for a daycare for our first child, we called around and met SO many people that were not the "right" people for to leave out child with. The 1st time we met Miss Melissa we knew that she was not just a daycare provider she was a true friend. Our daughter LOVES her and her children and we don't feel bad or guilty droping her off each morning. When I think of daycare I could not think of anywhere better that I would want to send my child. I feel that my child is safe and VERY loved in this daycare and I would HIGHLY recommend it.

I moved to this area in the middle of the year and didn't know anyone or how to find a provider. Thankfully I came across an add for Gandaroo Kids and contacted Miss Melissa. She immediately put my mind at east, and was able to work my two young children in on short notice. Now that my girls are there, they truly are thriving. My two year old's vocabulary is expanding rapidly, and she now speaks some Spanish. My younger daughter has become a much happier child, and they both enjoy going to the center. I recommend this center to anyone! The small atmosphere is fantastic, and I am very happy we found Gandaroo Kids!
