My kid absolutely loves the daycare and every body over there. The center is clean, they give healthy and good food, they provide detailed report of the daily activities and above all the teachers and everyone at the center are very friendly and nice.I love checking out their daily photos and videos updates on their life cubby. My kid loves to go and we are happy and satisfied to be part of the Mon Jardin family.

The program at Mon Jardin is absolutely wonderful! The teachers and staff are all experienced care providers who have a very comforting, genuine nature about them. Even the teachers in the older classrooms know my daughter by name and give us a warm greeting when we see them. The transparency at Mon Jardin is unparalleled and I always feel that I am well informed not only in regard to the curriculum but also on a day to day basis with my daughters behavior and development. Mon Jardin is a technologically friendly establishment as well as the LifeCubby app keeps me updated throughout the day and enables me to actually see what the kids have been up to. The food that is provided is healthy and nutritious and I adore all the art work and projects she brings home. Mon Jardin gets a big GOLD STAR in my book!

My son started at Mon Jardin at 4 months old. After a long month of searching for the perfect place, I stepped foot into Mon Jardin I knew that this was the environment that I wanted Joey to be in. It so secure, so safe, and just overall welcoming. I took my shoes off to step into the infant room, and it is like being in a different world. It's a room of happiness. There are so many activities, each child was occupied, whether he or she were playing with toys, being read to by a teacher, or just having fun interacting with each other. It was amazing to see babies (they will always be babies in my eyes!) interacting with each other. I set Joey down and a little boy waddled over to him, squatted down, and started giggling which in turn made Joey giggle. Another little girl crawled over to him and offered him her toy. It was the first time Joey had any interaction with other children and this moment just brought me to tears. I knew that this was the perfect place for him. As much as I loved being home with him, I knew that the daily interaction with children and other teachers would be so beneficial in his development. I have to mention that the place is spotless. With so many kids (they have care available up to Kindergarten) I don't know how they keep it so clean but it is impeccable. You are required to take your shoes off or put on booties before entering the rooms, and you must wash your hands each time you come in which I think is great. What I enjoy also is that at the end of each day I get a paper with details of how his day went. It lists the exact times his diaper was changed and if it was a BM or just wet. It lists exactly when he was given his bottle, and now how often he was given solid foods. It also gives the start and end time of each nap. It so helpful and it is really nice having a paper right in front of me with how his day went. But what I love most about Mon Jardin is Ms. Maria. She is the lead teacher in the infant room and her knowledge of infants is outstanding. I am a new mother, and her helpful hints and tips have helped me so much. I can just tell that she puts her heart and soul into what she does. You know when you can just tell someone is passionate about something? Well, this is her passion. She has more patience than I have ever witnessed before. Meeting her during the tour really put my heart at ease. I thought to myself before "how will anyone be able to take care of Joey as good as I can, he needs his Mommy". Well, Ms. Maria does it. It is so comforting knowing that Joey has her. It was hard to put my trust in a daycare, but I fully trust Mon Jardin and I give the credit mostly to Ms. Maria for taking such good care of my Joey. I would highly recommend Mon Jardin, and look forward to watching Joey grow with the Mon Jardin family.

My son has been attending Mon Jardin since he was 8 weeks old. I first decided on the Center because of its cleanliness, security, and professionalism of the staff when I first toured the property. A year and a half later, I have stayed with Mon Jardin because we now feel like part of the family. Even with the many children that attend the school every day, I feel like my son gets the personal attention that every child deserves. As a first time parent that works full time, you have the worry that sending your child to daycare might not be the right move. But I no longer have that worry.

He enjoys going to “school” every day and he comes home happy and exhausted from the various activities. The learning curriculum in place helps him develop and the experience staff can tell when he may need a little help in one area or another. The daily activity sheets keeps my husband and me informed on the fun stuff he gets to do all day. Recently they have added a wonderful online feature that enables us to see pictures of him and his friends having fun in the class room! A nice bonus!

Overall my experience and more importantly, my son’s experience has been very positive. I always tell my other mom friends how much I love Mon Jardin.

Mon Jardin has to be one of the BEST daycares I have had the pleasure of sending my child to. They are caring, respectful and tentative to my child and me. They do what most daycares should do, but don’t, they listen to the parents. We moved from our previous day care because of the astronomical rates and crowded rooms. At Mon Jardin they keep the groups small and the children active. The rates are VERY reasonable considering all the benefits we receive. My son loves the fresh cooked meals and activities. While I enjoy the fenced in play yard, individual password touchscreen entry and electric daily notes and pictures on LifeCubby. My son cheers "yeay we made it" when we turn into the complex that leads to the daycare. They helped potty train him very quickly with consistent methods and a loving atmosphere. After trying out 3 different daycares we have found a perfect fit.

We originally had planned on using Mon Jardin only to off-set our primary day care, which was only open during the school year. 3 weeks into the summer my wife and I had started the discussion on how well our son (14 months) was doing there, and since they are year round, we it seemed to be a good fit. After 1 month we decided that we wanted to keep our son enrolled at Mon Jardin, and we have not looked back.

Mon Jardin is run very well, and each room is for different age groups, so your child will be in the room with kids his/her age. They have a good system for dropping off and picking up your child, and the security is also very good.

They keep the facilities very clean, and in each room the children have their own cribs to sleep in each day. They have an on-site chef who makes fresh and healthy meals for the kids (they get breakfast, snack, lunch and an additional snack each day).

We could not be happier with the staff, and overall our experience has been excellent!
