What Our Families are Saying

We became a Tiny Tot family in the summer of 2016 when our oldest was preparing for the Pre-K program. When a spot became available for our next child to enter the Toddler Room, we jumped at the chance! From the very first day, we have felt nothing but welcomed into the center. Each and every educator is genuinely invested in the growth and development  of our children. The staff at Tiny Tots become invested in their families. They know them. They appreciate them and they work incredibly hard to ensure each child is recognized for their individual specialness.  We now have our youngest in the Baby Room, our middle in the Pre-K program and our oldest attending the before and after school activities. We have interaction with almost every person on staff on a daily basis. Each one knows us by name, they know our children and know our routines. The amazing staff and wide variety of activities the children participate in makes for a tremendously positive experience for our family. Management and all the staff have eliminated the stress of having 3 young children in childcare. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of centres and can’t wait to see our children progress through the years under their leadership and teachings.

“Our daughter is blossoming at Tiny Tots daycare.  She loves the staff, her friends, and all the fun activities, to the point we check her calendar each day to see what adventure she will have.  We appreciate the care, individual attention, and inclusive environment that the staff create.  Tiny Tots creates a nurturing, caring, and fun learning environment and we are so pleased that our daughter is able to benefit from this exceptional program.”  Bobbi Jo and Matthew Walker 

“Our oldest began Tiny Tot on Pope Avenue in the Spring of 2015 when he was 2.5 years old. We knew he was ready for a more structured learning environment than his day home at the time could offer however we were nervous to transition him to a daycare center. That hesitation was put at ease during our initial visit to view the center when we met several of the staff and witnessed them interacting with the children who attended and we knew we were making the right decision to send our son to Tiny Tot. The love that the Tiny Tot staff have for the children they work with is evident in every encounter we as parents have had with the staff and every interaction we have observed between them and the children they work with. Staff celebrate the successes and milestones our children meet from potty training to mastering the alphabet and are always excited to share these successes with us. From stories of the funny things they said or did that day to pictures and videos capturing their latest field trip, as parents who cannot be with our children throughout the day to experience these things, we feel very connected and for that we are thankful. When our youngest was ready for daycare in 2016, there was no question as to where he would go. The Tiny Tot staff have become like family to us and we are so grateful that in our absence, it is these wonderful, caring individuals who are teaching our children.”

“My 2 grandchildren have been with Tiny Tot (Kensington Road)  for 1.5 years now.. I cannot express enough love and gratitude to the staff at Tiny Tots in helping to mold and influence them in such a positive and loving atmosphere.

They both love the meals, all of which are home cooked. (my grandson asks the cook ‘what are we having today?’, everyday).
There is plenty of activities, outing, and lots of outside play.
They look forward to going to daycare and playing with their friends everyday.  I would highly recommend this daycare, they take care of your children like their own.
 I couldn’t ask for a better second family.. Thanks so much!
Thumbs Up!”

“My son has been with Tiny Tot since he was an infant and still attends before and after school program.As you finish your maternity leave and have to leave your most precious thing in your life with strangers!
You go back to work and worry that the staff is taking care of your son like you do (these were my thoughts). I observed each and every day that they were certainly taking amazing care of him. As he grew with this wonderful Daycare I could see how great the teachers were with him and how much he loved attending. As he grew and started talking he would share great stories about his day. The teachers were fantastic to keep you updated on things that happened during the day, made a phone call if your child was sick, and kept journals on the growth of your child. He has spent a lot of time with them over the past 5 years. You know that your son loves where he goes when its birthday time and teachers names are on the list! As a single parent I did struggle some days with questions on how do I do this and I always had a seat in Pam’s office while she helped me get through the bad days. Tiny Tot has been a
big part of our lives and I have no problem telling people to register their child with this wonderful daycare.”
Peggy Weatherbie

“We could not recommend Tiny Tots more!  Our children have, and continue to attend the centre on Kensington Road.  There is such a comfort in knowing when you drop your babies off in the morning, that they are being cared for in such a compassionate and nurturing manner!  The staff go above and beyond to help the children learn and transition to different areas of the centre, and beyond!  The program they offer allows the children to learn in a play based manner, and we are still amazed at the knowledge they have acquired during their time there!”

” My daughter has been a part of the Rainbow family for a little over a year now and it has been a wonderful experience for us. I love that she is able to interact with the different staff members and that she has built a relationship with each of them. Before she started we were a little nervous but it didn’t take long for us to see just how kind and caring the staff at Rainbow is. They took a genuine interest in getting to know her and even go out of their way to make her older brother feel welcome when he comes along to pick her up. At home she talks about her teachers, the friends she has made there, and adores teaching us things she has learned.Like healthy eating! “Vegetables are healthy for your body Mommy!” My favourite thing is coming to pick her up at the end of the day. Watching her for those few moments before she realizes that I’m there. Whether it’s listening to a book, playing a game, or playing hairdresser she is always engaged and having fun! To anyone looking for quality childcare I highly recommend Rainbow as a center that has the perfect blend of learning, play and nurturing. “
