"I have never had to spend a single moment worrying about leaving my son there. He absolutely loves his teachers. It is also clear that the teachers love the kids. It's like leaving your child with family members who also happen to be experts in child development and learning. I can't say enough!"
Sara N., Puddle Duck Mom
"Puddle Duck Day School was like our home away from home for almost 5 years. The quality care and education kept us coming day after day. The staff is amazing and long standing, which is rare in this industry. They all truly care about your children. I only left Puddle Duck because I moved, and I can say I compare every child care center to Puddle Duck and they simply do not compare. Puddle Duck forever changed our lives and instilled tremendous values in our children. The self help skills that are taught at this center are tremendous. One of the things I always found remarkable was how calm and quiet a center full of children was. You could literally hear a pin drop because the staff is so organized, patient, focused and content. If we could go back we would. If you are searching for quality, loving and trusting care, Puddle Duck is definitely the center to go to."

"Both my children have attended Puddleduck since my daughter started in 2009. I have been so happy with the care they have received from very loving teachers who make my kids feel special everyday. They truly look forward to going to "school" and its so comforting to know that they are happy and having fun learning when we leave them in the care of others."
Chris C., Puddle Duck Dad
"Puddle Duck was highly referred to us and the reviews were spectacular, and it's very clear as to why. The staff is nothing short of amazing! We were hesitant to enroll our 15 month old in daycare but decided it was worthwhile to help her in the social development department. The warm acceptance that our daughter has received is exactly what we had hoped for and more. The daily report cards and weekly journal entries by the staff allow us as parents to have a clear vision into what our daughter's day entails. It's evident that Puddle Duck takes pride in the way they care for children and we're grateful for their caring ways."
"Puddle Duck is part of our family! My older son has been going there for 4 years now and my younger son will start soon! My husband and I say on a regular basis that sending our boys to Puddle Duck is one of the best parenting decisions we have ever made! The teachers are loving, fun, and so dedicated! We call it school, not daycare, because that is what it is! From learning baby sign language in the infant room to manners, self esteem and life skills in preschool - every class has its own curriculum and the kids learn so much! This is a very special place!"

"As a new mom you are never quite sure who to trust with your little one…finding a daycare for our first baby was a daunting task. We researched websites, online reviews and visited 5 day care centers before making our choice. The minute I stepped into Puddle Duck Day School, I could feel the difference. It was warm, welcoming and really felt like home. Home– a place that I knew our baby would feel loved each and every day. Our little one is now 21 months old and has been with Puddle Duck since she was 10 weeks old. To watch her grow these past 21 months has been amazing. What has been more amazing is how much she has learned while at Puddle Duck. She is social, she loves music (and dancing), she is funny, she uses sign language, she talks (a lot!), she uses her manners, etc. She is everything you hope your child would be at 21 months. Her teachers have all done an amazing job with her-starting with Miss Marybeth and Miss Barbara who had her from 10 weeks up until 14 months. Miss Lizzie, Miss Annalise, Miss Alexa, and Miss Robyn who have her now in the Toddler room – each and every person at Puddle Duck has had an impact on our little girl. She enjoys going to school every day and comes home teaching us new things! We couldn't be happier with our decision over 2 years ago when we chose Puddle Duck for her. It has been an experience that has superseded our expectations (which were already high). I highly recommend Colleen and her team…you will be amazed at how much your child can grow and how much love they will feel just by being a part of this amazing place. Thank you Puddle Duck for doing an amazing job with our little girl!"
“We cannot recommend Puddle Duck highly enough. Our daughters absolutely love it. This is our third daycare and undoubtably, the best of the three. The class sizes are just right, the curriculum is tried and true and the teachers genuinely care about each child. The Puddle Duck team adds a personal touch that you will not find in large, corporate centers. Lastly, and certainly not least, meals are provided which is a huge time saver for working parents.”

“Puddle Duck has been a great experience for us. Our daughter has attended from 11 months to now 4+ years old. She has had a series of great care teachers and helpers. Being an only child, we've found that Puddle Duck has helped her social development, and helped her improve on a wide range of skills. She often comes home telling us about fun things she did that day, and how she likes her friends and teachers. This year Colleen has done a great job balancing keeping the center open with concerns about COVID safety. While it's impossible to eliminate all risk, we trust that Puddle Duck is as safe as is possible, and is a good learning environment.”
