Current and former families share their experience with Celebration! Childcare.
When we moved to Libertyville from Chicago, one of our biggest priorities was finding a childcare program where we felt our children would be nurtured, stimulated, and well cared for. After touring a few facilities, we immediately knew we wanted our children to attend Celebration! Childcare. We loved the structure and curriculum built into the days, yet an emphasis on the importance of play in childhood, and daily time outdoors. Our children (at the time ages 3 and 4) were quite nervous to start a new school, but immediately felt at home and welcome in their new environment. All of the teachers have been consistently loving and bring so much energy and delight to the children’s days. I am always interested to hear my children talk about all they have learned in their classrooms as well! We are so pleased to have chosen Celebration! Childcare, and I would (and do!) recommend it wholeheartedly to others.
Celebration! Childcare has taken great care of my daughter. The teachers have a genuine interest in the individual and always make each child feel special. They encourage the love of reading, playtime, and kindness towards one another. It is so comforting to know that my daughter is having fun playing with her friends, while also learning and exploring through crafts, books, projects, and experiments. I especially love how easily they weave faith into the curriculum. My daughter frequently talks about prayer and Jesus and how she loves attending chapel! I also love that the teachers helped the kids create fun, active games during the pandemic because they are allowing them to still be kids. They recognized the need for play and socialization with these kids and encouraged and incorporated so many opportunities during these difficult times. They worked quickly and efficiently to open childcare while following the CDC guidelines, and the effort rolled out seamlessly, so our kids were able to experience the joys of friendship. We loved our experience at Celebration and feel very confident that our daughter is equipped with the necessary skills to enter kindergarten next year.
Thank you again for everything!
I cannot believe it’s been 8 years with all of you at Celebration! Childcare. I cannot express enough my sincere gratitude and appreciation for how Celebration! Childcare educated both my children, prepared them for Kindergarten and shaped them into sweet/nice young boys (which in my opinion is the most important part.)
We will miss all of you and will continue to highly recommend Celebration! Childcare to anyone that may have a childcare need. And if we ever find ourselves with a need to bring them back, I will not hesitate to reach out to you.
What an amazing place for children! Both of my daughters attended Celebration! Childcare and the teachers are like family to us. I will never forget being a first-time mom and dropping off my 4-month-old infant on the first day. The infant room teachers made a difficult day so much easier. The updates on her activities and pictures of her smiling face made me feel like I was still there with her. I learned so much from the teachers at Celebration! Childcare during my many years of bringing my girls daily. Everyone is welcoming, friendly, helpful and rock stars at what they do. The teachers go above and beyond to provide a safe, and fun learning environment. My girls learned so much both socially and academically. The administration is wonderful and approachable. We cannot express how amazing this daycare is!
We have had children at Celebration! Childcare for over 5 years. We visited several childcare facilities and when we left Celebration we knew we had found the place we wanted our children to go. We have had our children in every room starting with the twos and every single teacher and assistant has been wonderful. They are kind, caring, compassionate and loving people. They are fun and engaging but most importantly they build a relationship with each child. We felt our daughter was well prepared for kindergarten this year academically as well as mentally and emotionally. The staff at Celebration has been more then accommodating and do a wonderful job of diversifying their teaching to meet the needs of all of their learners. We are very grateful for Celebration! Childcare.
Our son started at Celebration! Childcare when he was 3.5 and finished when he began Kindergarten. We are so pleased with the supportive and creative learning environment. Samantha Cooper, the director, took over during the pandemic and handled all the changes, uncertainties, and updates to programs with grace and ease. The staff worked hard to build positive and trusting relationships with my son and we always felt like he was welcomed to “school” with positive attitudes and joy! The summer camp program was full of exciting activities and in-house field trips. I highly recommend Celebration! Childcare in order to prepare any child for routines, schedules, and activities common in Kindergarten classrooms!
The Folliard Family
Our youngest son started at Celebration! Childcare at 5 months when we moved into the area. Every classroom he has been a part of is led by kind and caring teachers who structure his day with enriching activities. He is happy to 'see his friends and teacher' every morning and waves to the school when we drive by on the weekends. He is learning and growing in a happy environment and that is exactly what full-time working parents can depend on at Celebration! Childcare.
We have had the best experience with Celebration! Childcare. My son is five and he's been in the capable, patient, compassionate hands of the staff at Celebration! since he was just a few months old. I know the teachers deeply care for the children because those he hasn't been in a classroom with for years still know him by name. He's more than prepared for Kindergarten due to the curriculum he's learned at Celebration! and I absolutely adore how much effort the staff put into exciting activities year-round. Additionally, the crew at Celebration! handled the COVID-19 pandemic so professionally, I am truly grateful for the care and communication they utilized to keep the children safe and the parents well informed. We love them!
