What our Lovely Family Says

Testimonials from our daycare parents. Please visit our Google listing or Facebook profile for more reviews.

Jessica Mace - Parent

“Crossroads Learning Center is so much more than a daycare to us. Our kids have been attending since 2015 and the center has become like a second home to each of them over the years.

Between the amazingly loving staff, notable cleanliness and licensing adherence standards, yummy meals cooked in-house, creative and engaging learning plans, and fun outdoor activities for every season, we have continued to be blown away by our kids’ experience and the memories they are making.

Miss Brie and her team truly love all of the kids they care for, and it shows. The Crossroads team IS family to us; we are so lucky to have found them!”

Elizabeth Prouty - Parent

 “Absolutely love the care and education my children have received at CLC. 

My son attended from the age of 14 weeks old until he entered kindergarten and absolutely thrived. They showed him love and compassion daily along with a curriculum that he enjoyed and learned from. 

My daughter is now two and a half and has attended since she was 8 weeks old. When she started at CLC there were no reservations about starting her so early. I knew she would receive the love and care needed. Fast forward to now and my daughter is learning and loving her “school day”. I could not ask for better childcare to care for my children.” 

Joe and Bekah - Parents

“Crossroads Learning Center is not the first child care center we have used for our family, but it is our favorite!

The staff is so nice and welcoming… The teachers greet us every morning with smiles and friendly words (even teachers from other classrooms greet us). [Our children] are always happy to see their teachers and our toddler never wants to leave at the end of the day!

The friendly staff, the amazing art projects, the flexibility with scheduling… and the pictures you post on Facebook of our kids having fun at school really make it a lot easier to leave our children in your care because we know they are having a great time and that they are in excellent and loving hands! Thank you Crossroads for everything you do!”

Erika - Parent

“We have been with Crossroads Learning Center for 3 years and our daughter (5 years old) and son (1 year old) both currently attend.

We love the family atmosphere of Crossroads, and we know that all of the teachers know and love our children. We also know that our children are learning so much every day! Our daughter is more than ready for kindergarten, and our son will be more than ready for preschool when the time comes.

We also love the summer program and field trips that our daughter gets to go on, including the Howell Nature Center, Howell Aquatic Center, the Howell Library, Bounce gymnastics, and more! We couldn’t be happier and would recommend Crossroads Learning Center to anyone.”
