"I loved having my child with Nicole! She is very warm and friendly. Our daughter nearly immediately started coming home with new words. She developed a love for books and songs. She also started dancing a lot more! I could tell that our daughter was wonderfully cared for every day, which put our minds at ease."
"We had an amazing experience with Nicole and saw our 2 year old daughter really thrive during her time at Creative Hearts Daycare. Nicole possesses a kindness and attentiveness that made my wife and I immediately feel confident that our daughter was in a safe place and took the time to understand our concerns that we had when coming from another daycare that was not the right fit for our child. Nicole's patience and dedication to helping our daughter develop and learn was evident every day. She provided the perfect balance of play, crafting, and structured learning time that our daughter needed, and it seemed like our daughter was learning something new every day from letters, numbers, colors, animals and even picked up a few songs. I would not hesitate to recommend Nicole and Creative Hearts to anyone and we hope to bring our new baby here when she get a little older."

"I had the pleasure of having Nicole take care of my daughter for a year. Nicole is very professional and runs a great daycare facility. I never had any worries when I dropped off my daughter with her and her other daycare staff. I definitely recommend Creative Hearts-- you will not be disappointed."
"Our daughter was in the wonderful care of Nicole for almost two years. Her loving and creative learning environment was just what our little one needed after moving cross country for a new job. During that time we watched her grow into a curious, verbose, and creative child whose already deep love of reading and music was encouraged further. Additionally, as part of Nicole's master's degree coursework our daughter was able to be assessed using current child development methods which helped us identify areas of progress where she needed further assistance in mastering (i.e. gross and fine motor skills). It was only the birth of our second child and need for care closer to my work to fit our schedules that prompted us to make the move; otherwise she would still be there. I would highly recommend Nicole for anyone who wants their child in a loving environment full of creativity and fun!"
"My daughter Zinnia had a wonderful time at Creative Hearts Daycare. She bonded easily with Nicole and her husband Lubin and talked about them all the time. Nicole always prepared stimulating projects and activities for the kids. Zinnia especially liked the focus on music (she wants to sing all day long). Nicole's entire house seems crafted with children in mind, from the decorations to the play spaces to the boxes of books. I felt very comfortable leaving my daughter with Nicole, knowing that she would be well cared for and loved -- and that she was learning."
"Words cannot express our gratitude for the care you have given over the years to Kre. We have seen him learn and grow into a fiery, caring, and compassionate little boy. Your love and patience while keeping him safe under your care has been invaluable. Thank you for everything. I know Kre will miss you. All the best,"

"Kennedy was in the care of Nicole from December 2014-March 2016. Kennedy joined Nicole’s daycare when she was 9 months old and Nicole was Kennedy’s first daycare provider. We cannot thank her enough for her love and compassion. Nicole is so incredibly kind and gentle. Her daycare is excellent and we just felt a bond with Nicole instantly. Nicole has always made Kennedy feel comfortable and has taught Kennedy so much!!! Kennedy can say her ABC’s (of course in a singing tone, which I know is from Nicole’s beautiful singing) and knows her shapes and colors. Kennedy will miss Nicole and her friends at Creative Hearts Daycare. Nicole, Thank you again for being as awesome as you are! I would highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking for a safe, gentle, calm and loving environment for their children."

"Nicole was wonderful to work with and it is obvious that she really cares for the children under her care. She did a great job at accommodating my sometimes unstructured work schedule. She also did a great job about communicating the daily activities the kids worked on (ie: art projects, learning activities, etc). I always felt comfortable leaving my son in her care, and she seemed to strike the right balance between play time and learning activities. I would recommend her services to anyone without question."
"Thank you for the great care you provided Declan this last year. Coley and I are so grateful that you were able to watch him for us. As we move on we will cherish all the memories and time with you. We will keep in touch as time goes on because you are part of our lives now. The best feeling in the world is having a wonderful and caring person watch your child. For that we can’t thank you enough."
-Liz and Coley Willadsen
"As a working mother, it’s hard to find a place that can provide a comfortable and secure environment; however, I found Creative Hearts Daycare. My daughter attended Creative Hearts Daycare from November 2013 through June 2014. While in Nicole’s care, she enjoyed music and art. She also learned life enhancement skills such as sharing, patience, understanding and love. Nicole creates an environment where children have fun as well as develop wonderful relationships with learning and with each other. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for the very best care for their child. The love and patience provided by Nicole makes us realize how lucky we were to have found a Creative Hearts Daycare. I’d highly recommend Creative Hearts Daycare, as you’re guaranteed to receive the type of care you would give your child."
"I have nothing but positive things to say to about Nicole at Creative Hearts Daycare. My daughter LeeAnn really learned so much, and made such improvements from being with Nicole. She has always been a happy child, but seemed that she was super happy with Nicole. It really made me sad that I had to move her, due to a change of location in our living arrangement. I would for sure recommend Nicole again though, and would want to use her again, if I ever find a job closer to her daycare. I believe her daycare was awesome and felt totally at ease in knowing that LeeAnn was in safe hands with Nicole. I thank Nicole so much for her time and willingness to help me out. We miss her already..."
