“I am a first time mom, and putting my son in daycare was very scary. Nora made us feel very comfortable and our son took to her right away. She was very loving and attentive to our son, which made us feel as though we were leaving our baby with a member of our family, not just a daycare. I would recommend Nora and her lovely home to anyone!”

It’s hard to find the right daycare. When we first went to Nora’s my son instantly started playing and did not want to leave, we knew this was the right place for him. Nora is friendly, caring and my son loves her. He calls it his school and has learned a lot with Nora’s preschool package. I would recommend gum drop kids to anyone!
“We started taking Peyton to Nora’s when she was about 5 months old. She is now just over 2 years old. Both my husband and I interviewed with Nora when choosing our daycare. We immediately felt a sense of comfort with Nora. She answered all of our questions, had questions for us, wanted to get familiar with Peyton, and was very welcoming. Right away we knew that it would be the right place for Peyton. Since then, Gum Drop Kids has been a nurturing, educational, fun, loving, second home for Peyton. She adores Nora and all of the friends she has made there. She is taking part in activities that will prepare her for school and learning how to adjust to that environment. Nora is accommodating, encouraging, nurturing, thoughtful, hard working, respectful, honest, and most importantly she cares! I believe and trust in the way that she runs her daycare. They are constantly doing different activities and I like the fact that she does a lot outdoors with the kids. She sends me pictures or videos often of Peyton doing/trying new things at daycare and I love seeing that. She truly cares about the well-being of the kids and takes them in as if they are her own. She is a wonderful provider and, honestly, I don’t know what we would do without her! We are so grateful we found her!”
“If you are looking for a fun, safe, and educational place for your child then you have come to the right place. I have had my son in Gum Drop Kids daycare since he was almost 2 years old and 2 years later he still attends and he loves coming here so much. Mrs. Nora is amazing, patient, and I have always been able to trust her completely when it comes to caring for my child. I know he will be heartbroken when he starts kindergarten next year and will not be able to attend Gum Drop Kids anymore.
Everything is always beautiful and clean and my son enjoys the big back yard.”
“Absolutely floored today. My daughter has been with her new preschool for more than two days and She can already write her name like a kindergartner. The letters were perfect, written in the right order.
Same goes for numbers. She has been coming home happy, cheerful, and VERY eager to learn. Like this light bulb just went on. This is a proof to me that if you let a child learn through play, singing,and age-relevant activities (and not pushing kids to learn all their sight words before the age of four), they can and will blossom. Totally amazed!”
