Both of my daughters attended Theresa's daycare when she was located in Kitchener and I cannot speak highly enough of Theresa's skills and professionalism. Theresa takes her career very seriously and allowed the perfect balance of education and playtime with the children in her care. My daughters learned numbers, letters, imagination and manners. I felt very comfortable and excited for my children to attend Theresa's daycare. I highly recommend Play and Learn Kids!

Theresa was an excellent care provider for our daughter. She is passionate about children and education which was evident through our daughter's development in her care. Our daughter blossomed from a quiet, shy girl into an exuberant, curious and adventurous child.
Theresa ensured that the kids were prepared for school by regularly teaching letters and math and keeping a routine schedule that the kids could count on, and she did it in such a way that the kids were playing games and having fun.
Her communication with us was flawless. She regularly took a couple of minutes in the morning or the evenings to update us on how our daughter's day was in addition to the daily journal she sent home. She posted and updated a regular menu as to what she was feeding the kids so that we felt confident that our daughter had received healthy balanced meals.
We would still have our daughter in her care had Theresa not needed to move!

My son attended Theresa's daycare for a short season, but one that was very impactful for him. We found our little man starting to expand his vocabulary and develop his social skills. He learned and practiced basic skills like tidying up toys after he played with them, sitting down and listening to lessons, and sharing.
Theresa has the best curriculum and structured environment with designated areas for crafts, reading, writing, math, science, sensory development, imaginative play and a special spot for toddler play! My son lights up when he sees her space and is so comfortable playing and discovering each spot.
Theresa is caring and attentive to the needs of each child as she writes and sends home daily journals and will even snap a few photos when possible! Our toddler LOVED "fire safety week" and outdoor play with ride on cars and pylon
cones. I highly recommend Theresa to anyone in search of a home daycare. She really is the best!

Our son was born with and illness that caused him to be developmentally delayed with speech. We decided to look for a daycare to help promote speech development as well as expand his social skills. Our other son Marcus also joined the group for part of the summer holidays.
I was so impressed with the cleanliness of the home, quality and variety of Theresa's learning centers, her use of Jolly Phonics program and scheduled daily routine. Theresa is very patient and kind with the kids and encouraged open communication with parents.
Tyce and Marcus both enjoyed their time with Theresa and the other kids and we are so happy that Tyce's speech development has progressed greatly in the last few months.
