“I cannot speak highly enough of HLS. It would be hard for me to express exactly what I appreciate most: the warmth and professionalism of the staff, the stimulating lesson plans, the healthy and nutritious meals, the excellent leadership and hands-on oversight by Kristie and the senior staff, the quick responses to all queries, the feedback from staff and from the webcam…I could go on and on. As a working mother it is reassuring to me to see that my son adores school and cannot wait to start playing with his friends and teachers, and he has progressed in leaps and bounds by participating in age appropriate games and activities. But what warms my heart the most and makes me realize he is in the right place is that he is surrounded by love and laughter all day long.” – Nancy, Toddler Mom


“It's a wonderful feeling to have my daughter squeal and smile each morning when she sees her HLS teacher!”-Katie, Infant Mom


"I liked Kristie from the minute I met her, at the park bright & early one morning, playing with her son. She's loving, smart, funny & has great energy; all things that are brought to life at HLS. Being a working mother is hard, and she understands; before HLS even opened, Kristie stayed on the phone with me for over an hour, late one night, just helping me sort out what I was even looking for in a daycare. Little did I know she was going to create a home away from home for my baby. My son has been at HLS since day 1. I was worried about how he would do in a group environment; he has always had one on one care. HLS made his transition so easy; he gets very personalized attention with all the benefits of socialization. I love knowing my son gets to go there every day. I love every single teacher that I have met. I love being greeted cheerfully every morning. I love that teachers in every classroom know my son's name. I love the toys, the immaculate space, the location. I love having video access; I can see what he is doing, as he is doing it. My husband & I call each other all day, "turn on the video, he's finger painting" or "turn on the video, it's yoga time". Most importantly, I love the community HLS has created. It's a very nice group of kids & parents who I'm genuinely excited to see on the weekends at the park. Plus, my son, who said very few words when he started, now says many words, in English & Spanish.”- Traci, 2&3 Year Old Mom

“Words cannot express how truly grateful I am to have found HLS! It is more than just a day care, it is like being part of an extended family. I walk in every morning with a huge smile on my face and have to tear myself away every day because I so enjoy spending time with everyone...and I know my son does too! As a new, working mother I was anxious to find the right child care situation, but after meeting Kristie and learning more about HLS I knew that this was the perfect fit. It is such a safe and caring environment and I feel so relaxed and comforted while I am at work knowing he is in such good hands. The staff's enthusiasm to teach is so apparent -- especially from the lead teachers/senior staff. They were given a gift and it is so obvious and wonderful to see. I can tell they truly love my child and he has formed bonds with some of his teachers that I know will be lifelong.
It is so clear that Kristie has a vested, personal interest in making sure the day care is the best it can be. She not only responds quickly with any request or concern, but is also proactive to make sure that we as parents are happy. My child has grown so much since he has been at HLS. I have noticed exceptional development - intellectually, socially and emotionally, and the teachers seem as excited as I am to see him reach certain goals and developmental milestones. The lesson plans are spot on and truly make a difference in his everyday experience. The facility is clean and organized and the rooms are full of wonderful toys and games which help promote the children's development. It is so reassuring to know he is in a nurturing and loving environment where he has countless opportunities to learn and grow. We feel so lucky to be part of the HLS family!” - Jaimie, Infant Mom

"HLS is a magical place for my little daughter that is welcomed every morning with a big smile. She loves her teachers and she loves all the different activities and classes that are offered to her.  The teachers are great- very committed and professional and they really care about our children. The communication with the school is exceptional and we - the parents - are always aware of what is going on in the classroom and in the school every day. Kristie is a wonderful Director and with her multiyear experience, her love for all the children and her big heart created a great community of happy children and happy parents."- Lina, 2&3 Year Old Class Parent
