" My daughter has been going to this daycare Cribs 2 Crayons since she was 5 months old. The director and all the staff have been nothing but kind and loving. I appreciate them in my daughters day to day life of learning and growing. I highly recommend them if you are looking for child care ."

" My one year old is so picky and does not get used to people easily. I was amazed at how much his personality grew there, he loves his teachers and his friends. He even sleeps on his own now, something he had a hard time with when he started. Krystal, the owner and director, is so nice and helpful. I also like the option of taking my older daughter there when she is out of school, and she loves it too. I highly recommend this daycare! "

" My kids don't go here anymore unfortunately, we all cried when we had to move out of state, but this is the only child care family that my children just really enjoyed! All the teachers and the owner are just so helpful and caring even beyond expectations of child care. I always had to fight my children to leave! And that has never happened! I wish more child care places were like this work family! Us Johnsons miss you guys! Hope ya'll have a wonderful new year! "

ShieldUs Parent Testimonial

"I believe the product is very useful and effective when coming to giving the children a preventative from illness! Normally my children get sick when starting at a childcare facility. One day I noticed that when I started at cribs to crayons they didn't get sick. This was even back in the beginning of the year when she only had the children washing there hands every morning before entering into their class. That was effective as well. The hand sanitizers is just a more convenient way of keeping preventative activities involved in the facility and I think it is extremely important, effective, and worthy of the money and time put into it. Looking forward to hearing more and supporting the movement. "
