Kingston Day Care Testimonials

Sarah and Colin NagleI consider my son fortunate to go to Trillium Child Care Centre. The staff at Trillium clearly enjoy being around young children and are exceptional in their jobs. He is welcomed every morning by the staff with warmth, caring and open arms.

The teachers look at each child as an individual, caring for their needs and making them feel important. I am confident leaving my son in such a safe, fun and stimulating environment.

As I'm driving home from work, I always look forward to picking up my son from Trillium and hearing about the fun he has had during the day.

The care he receives there has meant a lot to not only him, but our family.

Claire and JakaWe started Gus at St. Martha's in the infant room at 12 months old and he has loved it from the first day. Devon and Priscilla are so good and kind to the children; it really makes the transition easier. St. Martha's allowed us to do trial periods before we started full time to get Gus used to the play rooms and the other kids and teachers. I believe that helped tremendously as well. The kids are always doing crafts and activities, sensory learning techniques, playing outside, practicing their manners and sharing - all good things. The food and nutrition is excellent, lots of variety and a well-balanced combination of fruits, vegetables, proteins and carbohydrates. Devon and Priscilla have been very accommodating to nap schedules and any allergies or sensitivities the babies might have. Gusgus has learned a lot and has advanced in his motor and walking skills, he always comes home happy and in good spirits. Thank you so much for taking care of our baby boy.

Vincent and KristelleAs a parent, it is crucial to know your kids are in good care when they are not with you. At Trillium, the kids have a world of adventure to explore on a daily basis. The educators come up with creative ideas every day. From finger painting using small pieces of foam, to a live grasshopper that invited itself in the daycare, every opportunity leads to a positive learning experience. It’s with complete confidence that we registered our 7 months old son to follow in his sister’s footsteps. His integration was perfect and he enjoys a variety of activities at his own rhythm.

Both kids are excited to see the staff during morning drop off. Our daughter even used to fall asleep naming every teacher for the first few weeks she attended Trillium daycare. The kids can enjoy a wonderful facility. They have a bright and spacious play area, a multipurpose room to share with the elderly residents and an amazing yard with lot of trees. The multi-generational cohabitation adds a unique dynamic and offers special activities like trick-o-treating at Halloween or shared music time in the rain. They often leave waving goodbye to a few residents: ‘’See you tomorrow! See you tomorrow daycare!

Marissa Beckles The care provided by the team at Kingston Daycare is second to none. From the day that we started with the Before School program, to the PA day and summer camps, our son has loved attending their programs. The staff is friendly and attentive, and has taken the time to get to know our son over the years. Thanks for all you do guys!

Kait DignanMy family and I cannot recommend St. Martha Child Care Centre enough. They have been welcoming and inclusive right from the start, ensuring that my child felt comfortable in the new environment. The staff is patient and caring and have been so helpful in supporting our goals in areas such as social interaction, speech development and toilet training. My little one has flourished under their guidance and we are so very grateful. It is such a piece of mind knowing that he is well taken care of and in such a stimulating and enjoyable environment. He looks forward to attending each morning and never wants to leave at pick up! Thank you to everyone at St. Martha for all that you do. You have had such a wonderful impact on our lives!

The Tompkins FamilyTransitioning from a home daycare, we were nervous that our son would be overwhelmed by the number of kids in the preschool classroom. Lisa and the team of educators worked hard to make him feel welcome and let him settle in at his own pace. They took note of his interests, incorporating new toys to spark his imagination and foster communal play. We were also impressed by how attentive they were, and accommodating when we were investigating an allergy.

Three year old Charlie's FamilyTransitioning from a home daycare, we were nervous that our son would be overwhelmed by the number of kids in the preschool classroom. Lisa and the team of educators worked hard to make him feel welcome and let him settle in at his own pace. They took note of his interests, incorporating new toys to spark his imagination and foster communal play. We were also impressed by how attentive they were, and accommodating when we were investigating an allergy.

The most positive aspect of the Collins Bay Child Care Centre was consistency of staff. Most parents recognize that their kids are at daycare for more hours than they are at home. For us, having the same handful of warm and caring educators meant that we could head to work confident that he was safe and happy.

Kingston Day Care TestimonialOur son has been going to Collins Bay Childcare for well over a year now. While we were originally interested in Collins Bay for convenience reasons, we came to love it because of the staff. When I drop my son off at preschool, I know that he’ll be safe, well fed and nurtured. More importantly, I feel that the staff genuinely cares about my child. He loves going to preschool, and I can tell that all the fun playing he does is translating into new skills and development. They even helped me potty train the little guy! I have health problems, and I know I can count on Collins Bay to do whatever is in their power to accommodate me when I have unexpected childcare needs. Their flexibility and compassion are beyond what I would have expected.

Kingston Day Care TestimonialMy daughter is currently enrolled two mornings per week at Collins Bay Child Care Centre. I am extremely pleased with the outstanding quality of care she receives while there. The staff at Collins Bay are warm and friendly – my daughter is consistently greeted with a smile and a compliment when I drop her off for the morning. She gets plenty of positive attention from teachers and other staff throughout the morning.
I appreciate the programming offered by Collins Bay, most notably the sizeable amount of time allocated for outdoor play. My daughter always mentions outdoor play when asked about her day.
In addition to outdoor play, I love the convenience and peace of mind that comes with knowing she will be fed in the morning and at lunch prior to pick up – a service not all daycares offer.

I would highly recommend Collins Bay Child Care Centre to any and all parents looking for a safe, friendly and fun environment in which to place their child(ren).

Kingston Day Care TestimonialReturning to work after maternity leave (or beginning at a new Daycare) can be a difficult change, but the skilled teachers at St. Martha's have made the transition for our children (and us) absolutely seamless, every time.   Kingston Daycare has provided a very well organized,
educational, healthy, balanced and fun program for each of our three children over the past six years.  Each of our children have learned and grown socially under the care of St. Martha's teachers, and our two oldest children transitioned into Kindergarten very smoothly because of the excellent pre-school preparation they had at St. Martha's Daycare. Our youngest child is currently enrolled in the Baby Program and is excelling developmentally and growing in confidence because of the excellent personally-tailored program his teachers have developed for him.  Detailed notes of our baby's day are shared with us at the end of each day, which we really appreciate.   Every teacher at St. Martha's is warm, kind, professional, attentive, sensitive, positive, energetic, and charismatic...just to name a few of their qualities; all perfectly suited for what is the most important job in my opinion.

Kingston Daycare has provided the reassurance to us that our children are being provided the highest quality care, and it is evident that the best interests of each child at Kingston Daycare have been attended to consistently.  We are very fortunate, and will always be grateful, to have had the opportunity to have all three of our children enrolled with Kingston Daycare.

Kingston Day Care Testimonial'I feel extremely fortunate to have my children a part of St. Martha Child Care Centre. The staff are all very welcoming and take exceptional care of each child. When my family and I started at St. Martha the staff went above and beyond to make the transition from home to daycare as smooth as possible for me and my kids.  

They are so happy at daycare and always come home telling stories about all the fun they had, the friends they played with, and what the educators and staff taught them.  They run to get in the door at daycare, with everyone saying hello and welcoming them to a fun new day at St. Martha.  I couldn't have chosen a better place for my children.'

Thank-you to you and your staff for all you do. We are truly very thankful for all you've done for our kids.

Customized Kingston Day Care quotation marksOur little girl started at Collins Bay Child Care Centre when she was only 3 months old and she has benefited on many levels from the time spent there. The structure, programming, interaction with other children and most wonderful staff have helped our daughter grow into a smart, curious and well-mannered toddler who we are very proud of. We couldn't be happier with the care and learning opportunities provided at Collins Bay Child Care Centre and look forward to providing our second child with the same quality experience.
