"As parents of two children, one of whom is currently still attending Koalaty Time and another whom has graduated and moved on to Kindergarten, we cannot express enough the level of care, education and fond memories our children have received from Koalaty Time and owner Jan Castagnoli.
Koalaty Time students are exposed to a learning curriculum that is second to none. The evidence of the success of the curriculum was evident pretty early on with our children as they would use sign language to ask for "more" or say "please". As they grew older, they continued surprising us with their ability to recognize objects, body parts, colors, shapes, and animals. Our daughter, who is now in Kindergarten, is reading at a twelve year old level.
Jan and her team run a top notch operation. If there was ever any concern with anything, we felt Jan would take care of it immediately. Her staff is one of the best and have treated our children as one of their own. They are compassionate, caring and dedicated to seeing each child excel.
Our kids could not wait for "stay home day" (weekend) to be over so they can go back to the center and see their friends and teachers. As a parent, that made me feel comfortable knowing my kids enjoy their time spent at Koalaty Time all while I know they are being safe, protected and are receiving quality education while being able to play and grow.
Jan and her team have our family's 100% support and we strongly recommend Koalaty Time to anyone in need of daycare services."

"Thank you so much for all your generosity extended to us since we have been coming here. Your willingness to always accommodate me is beyond unbelievable. Seeing your smiling face upon our arrival and observing you greet each and every customer is just one of the many gestures of how you operate such a top notch daycare."

"Thank you for providing a fun, safe, and all-around fantastic environment for Tommy! We appreciate everything you’ve done for Tommy and us. We truly feel you have some of the hardest working, and more importantly, friendliest people caring for our child. We are looking forward to all the great things to come next year!"

"We entrust our precious girls to the staff of Koalaty Time and are grateful for the loving care, support, and guidance our girls receive. The teachers look at each child as and individual, with their own strengths and needs. Both of our daughters have been blessed with amazing teachers from the start. Our children have learned so much and continue to share with us the great activities that go on each day. Words cannot express the thanks that my family has for each and every Koalaty Time staff member that have been a part of our family for almost 5 years. We have high expectations for the care of our children when we feel that Koalaty Time lives up to those standards."

"Both of our kids started at Koalaty Time when they were infants. Any
parent worries leaving their baby with someone else, because no one is
going to be just like you... but we have always felt safe with our kids at
Koalaty. The teachers are great and they have the right attitude for taking
care of the kids. Parents always get a "Daily Gram" that has all of the
activity for the day - how much the child drank, diapers, naps, and lessons.
We wanted a lot of communication from the school and we got it. We
always felt like we knew who was taking care of our children, knew what
was going on at school, etc. Any time we had even a minor issue, we
were able to talk to the owner, Jan. She doesn't just have an "open door,"
she's standing there greeting you when you drop off and when you pick up
every single day.

We loved Koalaty as a daycare center and we love it even more as a preschool. When our oldest arrived at kindergarten, we got the list of words each student needed to know by the end of the year. He could easily read all of those "end of the year" words at the beginning of the year and many more. That's because we read at home and because he learned to read at Koalaty. Our youngest has just started the preschool part of the program at Koalaty, and her language and reading skills have improved leaps and bounds in a short time.
Whenever there is an opening, we tell everyone we know to get their kids into Koalaty Time if they can."
