“As an employer of several different child care professionals over the years we can truly say that Amy Straiton was our best hire. Amy worked around our schedules when needed, she was contentious, kind, and patient with our children. She worked well with us and we didn’t have to repeat instructions. We always knew our children were safe when they were with Amy and she was great about finding creative projects to do with the children and finding nearby parks or libraries to occupy their time. Amy truly cares about our children and became part of our family. Amy was a fantastic help to us as a family and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for care for their children.”
“Your company is truly great, and Addie has really come such an incredibly long way at Tacy’s. We are very impressed, and please feel free to use us for any references you may need. Thanks again!”
“We are so thankful for all you’ve done for us and embracing us in the BungalowBranch community. Baker has made great friends and has learned so much! Thanks to you, Miss Marilyn and Mr. Michael for supporting these most crucial years of Baker’s life and at a very trying time both emotionally and financially for me.
We appreciate all you do and thank you for gifting all of us with doing something you love.”
“I wanted to thank you for taking care of Elisabeth yesterday and for all of your feedback about her day. She was so happy and talkative when I picked her up and it was wonderful to know how she interacted with the other children.”
“Marilyn and Michael are wonderful and we can’t say enough good things about them and about how great they are with Sam. Sam loves them both and loves his friends. Thank you for all that you do with your programming for our child. We will recommend you to others and will always be happy to provide a written reference or statement on your behalf.”
“BungalowBranch fits what we’re looking for in so many ways; nurturing, educational, creative, convenient, optional evening and weekend hrs (if needed), pre-school curriculum, a great outdoor space, cooking projects, baby signing…the list goes on and on. Tacy is loving, patient, flexible yet structured, and truly loves her job.”
“I just wanted to thank you for being flexible and opening your home to James when Tacy was sick this past week. It was great to meet you! It’s nice to know that we have such a good “back up” for emergency situations like that. My husband and I both feel that we made a very good decision when we decided to go with BungalowBranch. Tacy has been great with James and I know that when we drop him off in the mornings he will be loved and cared for, and that’s a huge relief.”
“Marie not only kept our children safe but went a step further by educating them with age appropriate themes. She would always incorporate library trips, reading activities, crafts, and field trips…. I never doubted or worried about the children’s safety and happiness while my husband and I were away. Marie always kept the children involved with fun activities and was always emotionally present with hugs and one on one attention. The children love Miss Marie and will always remember their time with her.”
“You will find that Marie Kujawski has characteristics such as compassion, good communication skills, and excellent organizational habits which make her an excellent teacher.”
“Marie prepares her lessons for the day very thoroughly and in an organized manner. When I visit her classroom, the children’s eyes are focused on her and they grasp her words as she speaks to them. She has children of her own and handles the children she teaches very much as she would her own children. In turn, the children respond willingly and joyfully to her directives. She has created an atmosphere of learning and enthusiasm.”
“Working with BungalowBranch allows me to stay home with my kids. I don’t have to find a sitter or daycare for them and I can work from home. I’ve always had a heart for teaching and caring for younger children. I can do that and support my family as well. BungalowBranch takes care of finding clients and collecting tuition so I can focus on teaching and caring for the children. They support me when I need it and I feel like a collaborator. I’m proud to say I’m not an employee, I’m a business owner.”
“Throughout my life I was told that I couldn’t have my dream job unless I worked my way up. Start at the bottom and after years of working endless hours doing something I didn’t even want to do TO eventually get closer to that perfect position. BungalowBranch completely changed that for me. I’m only 23 years old and already have the dream job. Everyday I get to teach adorable children things like music and art, as well as manners and how to share with others (all within my very own home!). No more worrying about forgetting things at home, whether I have to scrape the ice off my car, or if there will be traffic in the morning. Not only that, but BungalowBranch goes the extra step helping my business with things like paperwork, billing and keeping my classroom filled with students. I am so thankful to be a part of such an extraordinary, life-changing program and company!”
“As a working mom, the hardest thing about returning to work after the birth of my daughter was finding child care that I felt comfortable with. The idea of my infant at a large day care facility with staff coming and going in shifts was terrifying. As I started to look for a private in home child care provider I became even more frustrated. I was searching for an in home provider that had structure and updates but a place where my child would get individualized attention in a home setting. BungalowBranch was exactly what I was looking for.
My daughter is one of just six children that spend the day learning and playing with Miss Kelley in her Bexley home. Kelley has three of her own children and Kelley has always treated my daughter like her forth child. Her patience with all of the children is amazing and her knowledge of child development has been a great resource to me as a first time mother. I have even called her on off hours and weekends to ask for her advice.
I love the daily email updates that my husband and I both receive. My husband works out of town often, and it is great for him to see what our daughter does at daycare while he is away. Kelley will often email pictures of fun activities the children are doing throughout the day. As a working mother it helps me feel connected to my child during the week. If my child was fussy in the morning or having a bad day I love that I am able to text Kelley and get an individual update at anytime.
Miss Kelley plans fantastic field trips for the children. My daughter loves to go on walks and play in the bounce house during the warmer months. The yearly fired trip to see Santa is something we always look forward to and the trip to Sky Zone was fun for both my daughter and I.
When I drop my daughter off each morning I know that she will be treated with kindness and love. Miss Kelley is more like an a fabulous aunt than just a child care provider!”
“I love how my child can grow with the program: infant to preschooler!”
