“The teachers are very patient, loving, and knowledgeable. Their cheerful, positive attitudes shine through when instructing the children. Also, this daycare is diverse, which is important to my family, as we wanted my son’s daycare to be representative of our values, community, and future schools he will attend. Many of the teachers are bilingual so your little one will learn multiple languages!

Some of the perks Sparkles! offers are live updates about your child, photos of your little one, and an end-of-day summary. They also provide a live video feed so you can check-in on your loved one wherever you are. On top of all of that, you’ll receive homemade crafts throughout the year that your little one has completed!
