Our children have been attending Carrie's for the last 6 years. They are a part of our family! I never worry if my children are being loved on or safe while I'm working. Communication is prompt and everyone is super friendly. The teachers provide great structure and fun daily activities for all ages.

I called several places and met several people when looking for safe, reliable care for my infant daughter. Carrie has come highly recommended by everyone I’ve spoken to and she’s got a very kind, caring, sweet, and honest disposition. Her fees are reasonable and she’s very thorough and easy to talk to. She’s been super easy to work with and I’m excited for her to be a part of my child growing and learning! It takes a lot for me to trust someone with my child and I can say that I trust her and her team of caregivers!

20/10 recommend Carries 2.0!!! I have had nothing but positive experience and I can be overbearing at times with 50 questions some days! They answer my questions promptly and most importantly give my little girl a safe, fun, loving and educational environment and I couldn’t ask for a better place for my girl to learn. She loves it there as do I love her being there!
