Highly recommend Janet! She took care of both my girls, one starting at 3 months, and they absolutely adore her. She is particularly excellent with infants and has a wonderful backyard for nature walks in good weather.
Happy to chat with anyone for references or with questions on my experiences, just shoot me a note!
This is in regards to Janet Maples and her lovely in-home daycare. Janet has cared for my 4- year-old son full-time since 2017 on the days he wasn’t in pre-school, and she just recently started watching my 7-month-old daughter on a need-by-need basis. I trust her wholeheartedly with my children. What impresses me the most about Janet is her ability to make each child she cares for feel special, regardless of age. She has boundless energy and always has new activities and projects for the kids to work on to keep them stimulated, and for every age! She will help with potty training and aid in positive behavioral reinforcement. Her home is safe, clean and well-maintained, with a back room specifically for children and play. She also has a lovely backyard during the warmer months for outdoor play. Janet is continuous in taking evening classes to keep her safety certifications current and her child development education up-to-date. She is always educating me on the latest requirements for sleep safety, nutrition and developmental milestones. Not only is she excellent with children, she is very responsive and communicative with the parents. She will keep you informed daily on your child’s progress and check in with you throughout the day if you need reassurance of your child’s emotional well-being during the first few weeks of transition into her care. As of mother of 4, she knows the worries we have leaving our children in the hands of others. I highly recommend Janet and her daycare to any family looking for a trustworthy, honest and reliable caregiver. I feel very fortunate to have found her!
I rarely write reviews but I feel it’s important to share feedback on something as important as childcare, and I hope that this helps a fellow parent make the best decision for their family. Searching for the right place to entrust the care of your child is a daunting task. After much research and many tours, I brought my son, Navid, to Janet’s home daycare because of a gut feeling that it just felt like the right place. The space is huge, spotless, bright and happy feeling. The backyard has a playground that is well maintained and safe for the kids. Janet is amazing and took care of my son like he was her own. I feel that she truly cares about the well-being and happiness of each child. The daily photos and videos she sent made my day, every day! I’ve always felt peace of mind leaving my son there, and that is priceless when looking for the right childcare.
Janet’s home is truly a warm and nurturing environment where kids thrive. I would recommend it to anyone.
Aras benefitted a lot from her time in your care and you provided an excellent environment for her development and growth.
