"I have 4 children ages 6 months to 8 years. I have been a client of Grandmas Place since my oldest was 6 weeks. I have had nothing but good experiences with the staff. They are always friendly and positive. My oldest left preschool overly ready for kindergarten. His teacher wanted me to thank his preschool teacher for doing such a great job. I would recommend any family looking into Grandmas Place for childcare."
"All we have to say is keep up what you guys are doing, this is a brand new center or at least it looks like it and they have the coolest stuff here, my kids have a blast, and come home from preschool happy! Everyone should at least talk to these guys, I really feel good at work knowing that I can trust my kids to be in good hands. Its really cool that they come home and actually LEARNED SOMETHING! vs being "watched" all day at the other "box" centers we have tried.
Definitely tell your friends!"
"We have enjoyed our 2 years at Grandma's Place! A few of the teachers have been there the whole time and show they are dedicated to our kiddo's happiness, learning and safety. Our family has developed lasting friendships with a number of the families through the community meals and of course birthday parties. It has been a great relationship, and we have had a hard time finding anything comparable in our new neighborhood."
"I have been a client of Grandmas Place Daycare for 10 years. My son is now 11 and has attended Grandmas Place since he was a baby. We love it and have recomended it to family and friends alike who need reliable, quality child care."
A Recent Letter from a Parent
Dear Grandma’s Place,
Our family feels so fortunate to have found you four years ago. I recall when my husband and I were looking for daycare centers in southeast Portland summer of 2010, the year my oldest was born. I was driving down Powell Blvd. when I noticed your enrollment sign. I called, got an appointment, took a tour and here we are, Grandma’s Place veterans with two kids attending your school-one preschooler and one wobbler.
Our oldest was in the center’s first infant class and is currently in the preschool class. In the past four years we have seen our daughter grow as a person, a friend, and a student in your caring hands. We enter and leave the building with the feeling of family. Your teachers and staff clearly care and want the best for her, and most importantly she feels loved. She is learning so much from the hands-on, interactive lessons your teachers prepare for her and her peers. She leads class in our living room a couple times a week.
Our youngest joined the Grandma’s Place community this past fall in the infant room. He is currently a wobbler, and my husband and I have seen him flourish. It is amazing to see him use a variety of signs and to graciously interact with his friends. He cannot wait to walk into the building in the building in the morning and give his teachers a big “Good morning” hug. It is evident to us that he is treasures by your teachers and staff.
As we have done in the past, we continue to recommend families to your center-our center. We appreciate your openness and commitment to care for our children. No matter what classroom, what age level, your center is an academically-driven, fun-filled learning environment. Thank you!
Diane & Matthew
"My son has been going here for about a year and we are so happy. Just like the other reviewer said, this was the first place I felt comfortable leaving my child. He loves his teachers and so do I! I appreciate the open door policy, flexibility, daily updates and so much more."
