“Columbia Child Care Center has been a great daycare for my daughter. Before coming to this daycare my daughter was a very shy 3 year old, and now she is leaving as a more outgoing 4 year old. My daughter has learned so much in the year and a half that she attended here and I am quite pleased about her learning and social development. I attribute her growth to the dedicated and patient attention given to her by the staff. The staff are wonderful and very attentive and always keep me informed of my daughter’s day to day activities and behavior. The center itself is very nice as well, clean with lots of toys and activities for the children. We are sad that it is time to move on, I know my daughter will miss all the staff and friends that she made while at Columbia Child Care.” Veronica G
“The easiest decision I ever made once I had my son was to go back to school and make a good life for us!! The HARDEST part about that, was being able to find a child care facility that I could trust. Having the stress with starting school, being a single mom, and strangers watching my child was incredible, but Columbia Childcare made life easier for me. Going to school myself at Columbia College and seeing the kids out side having fun while I was in class was a huge relief for me. The staff understood the work load I had and made it a wonderful place for me and my son. Staff is so loving and welcoming and great from the start. They have followed me through my dreams and honestly helped me succeed.” Angela N
“I have to say, I think Columbia is an amazing facility and I can't wait for my son to go back. He seems to be thriving and loving daycare every day. I have recommended it to friends and other ladies at work. The staff are amazing, especially Ms. Beata and Ms. Elvira. Thank you for all the awesome work you're doing.” Danielle M
