My son started at Dorothy’s in August 2017. He was coming from another daycare and I was having major mom guilt! The teachers and staff have made his transition smooth and he loves going to school everyday. Ms. Tonya in the preschool room is awesome. I love that I can go to work and know that my son is being well taken care of.

Our daughter has been going here since she was 3.5 months old. She was premature 6 weeks and we had so much fear about leaving our baby with strangers whom we didn’t know, little did we know we would come to trust them so much. Our daughters teacher Niah is excellent, patient and kind. She always keeps us updated on her daily activities and ciriculum . We love her ! All the staff are so nice and welcoming. Dorothy is super nice and accommodating to our needs. We love this daycare, it is close to home and convenient for us as well .

Two of my grandchildren go to Dorothy’s Discovery Daycare. They enjoy it so much and we feel at ease knowing they are in a safe, caring environment while they play and learn. I would definitely recommend Dorothy’s!

My daughter has been attending DDDC since she was 4 months old. We absolutely love the staff and are so confident in her care. We couldn’t have made a better choice!

My 3 (almost 4) year old granddaughter just started attending this program. I am beyond pleased at the way her teachers have gone out of their way to make Emma feel welcome. They even took her a backpack full of goodies the week before school started to HER HOUSE!!!! On the first day of school, they emailed her mother photos to ensure her that Emma was fitting in and having a great day. Thank you So, so much for making this transition easier on all of us!!!! Keep up the great work!!!

Our grandson started here recently and can’t say enough positives!!! Maybe one suggestion would be a bench for g-parents who are ahead of schedule to have a place on the boulevard to wait for the after school bus. But in he big scope of meeting the child’s needs they go over and above!!! THANK – YOU DOROTHY’S TEAM!!!

My rambunctious son, who will be 8 in Nov. has been attending her school-age summer camp for 3 summers now. Finding full-day, event filled, quality care was a big challenge. Dorothy’s team managed to keep him active, out in the community, and surrounded by kids in his age group. The play yard on site is an event in itself. . . They attend movies, swimming, and games with other centers. In addition to that, Dorothy is one of THE MOST down-to-earth, realistic, and caring, professional Women I have ever met. I love her because she loved my son and never once gave up on him despite difficult behavior — I recommend her every change I get!

I cannot say enough positive things about Dorothy’s! Here are the things we’ve come to love about it:
– Family-like atmosphere. From the admin staff to the teachers to Ms. Dorothy herself, I haven’t met a person that wasn’t warm, friendly and welcoming to parents and children alike!
– Smaller class sizes. From my personal experience, Dorothy’s does not “work the numbers” like many other daycares. Classes are kept under capacity and I really feel like my children get a great amount of personal attention.
– Flexibility. Due to my husband having a serious illness, we’ve needed to change our schedules repeatedly. Ms. Dorothy always works with us and we’ve been nothing but pleased with the way she’s handled our schedule changes.
– Price. We didn’t pick Dorothy’s because the tuition was the cheapest but are finding we really get the most for our money at Dorothy’s.
– Teachers. I have so many individual stories of the ways Dorothy’s teachers have taught and cared for my children. We are very pleased with the way they interact with and care for my children.

I love Dorothy’s! When I brought my son and daughter to Dorothy’s Discovery Daycare, they had never gone to a daycare before. So I wanted to make sure I found the best daycare center for my kids. After researching and visiting numerous facilities it was clear that Dorothy’s was the best! That still did not ease my worries though. I didn’t know how my kids would adjust to such a change. Needless to say the transition was a huge success! When my daughter was tested for kindergarten (She has an October birthday so she just made the cut off date) She passed with flying colors! I would recommend this daycare center to anyone. Dorothy’s Discovery Daycare is clearly the best in my book.
