Yelp Reviews


 "Nicole is a wonderful caretaker who looked after our son three days a week for about eight months. She took such good care of him and texted/used a great app kept us regularly updated on his activities and eating/drinking/other needs, as well as any concerns (if his eczema flared up, etc.). Our boy got to spend time playing and interacting with other children, which has drastically accelerated his growth and improved his vocabulary. He talks about Nicole and the other kids and looks forward to going. "


 "Nicole is wonderful and she will be more than a daycare provider to you and your family.  She will partner with you to help coach your child through the stages of development.  For a first time parent that expertise is invaluable.  My son crawled and walked sooner than he would have if he was not in daycare.  He was also a terrible napper (30min max) until he started at Tiny Bear.  By the third month he was sleeping 2-3 hrs at day care and at home. "


 "Nicole's Tiny Bear Day Care is hands down the best place for your little one. Nicole, has had our daughter in her care for an entire year. Our daughter has thrived in so many ways under her care. Our daughter had just turned 1 when Nicole started watching her. In the course of a year our daughter hit every milestone early. Not to mention her language skills were accelerated because of how Nicole has always given great individual attention to our daughter. My husband and I toured many "corporate" day cares and other home day cares and Tiny Bear Day Care was by far the best place we came across. "

A few kind words other parents have shared

  •  "We had such a good experience with Nicole! I had never met her before when I contacted her through I was a bit nervous because I hadn't hired anyone other than friends and family to watch my kids. Then a we had a last-minute babysitting need (needed to find someone within a couple days) and nobody we knew could watch them. I found Nicole and contacted her and she wrote back promptly. She agree to meet up with me and my kids before coming out to babysit them the next night. I knew right away that she was perfect! Very responsible, asked the right questions, payed attention to my kids, and listened to my needs well. She was also a good communicator both in person and via text/phone. The night she babysat my kids was a breeze (aka my kids liked her =)) AND to top it off she deep cleaned my whole house which was not a part of the job description. I will be hiring her if we have future babysitting needs and I highly recommend her!" -Rebecca
