We are extremely happy with the care Toddle Inn provides our two girls, who have been enrolled for over five years. Our first child started as an infant after a rough start at another daycare. The staff in the Toddle Inn infant room was attentive, caring and provided excellent feedback, which was important to me. I was impressed with the way Toddle Inn provided a written report on my child’s day and the systems they have in place to ensure our kids receive the best possible care. Although Toddle Inn is a fairly large center, each room has its own dedicated teachers and program ensuring a much more intimate environment than it may look at first glance. The Pre-K program is exceptional and goes above and beyond to prepare the children for kindergarten – from easing them into a day with no naps, to teaching them the skills they will need to excel in school. The Pre-K teachers are highly skilled and wonderful, and my daughter was more than ready for kindergarten. The aftercare program is more than just a place to hang out after school. The afternoon is structured providing time for homework, planned activities and outside play. A bonus for our family is that our daughter can ride the bus to and from Toddle Inn, and care is available during most school snow days and vacations. I guess most importantly, both my kids love Toddle Inn and the friends they have made there.

My children have attended the Cumberland Toddle Inn Day Care Center for almost 7 years beginning when they were just 3 months old. I have been blessed to leave my children in the hands of such loving and caring care givers. They have amazing programs for every age. Kids are never bored at Toddle Inn. From getting your babies on a schedule, potty training, education, dance class, karate and soccer to weekly summer themes and field trips and of course the yearly visit from Santa, they offer it all. With a Pre-K class offering, you are literally set with amazing care from infancy to kindergarten and then aftercare if needed. I can’t speak highly enough about the Toddle Inn Directors and care givers who have been a part of our children’s lives, they have become an extension of your family. Toddle Inn offers outstanding child care and community for children AND parents!” ~ Top Notch!

I have two children that are currently enrolled at the Toddle Inn in Cumberland, Maine. My son Jack will be 4 years old in February and my daughter, Ryan is 15 months. They have both attended school there since they were only a few months old. I had my first child, Jack, in February of 2010. We needed to find full-time child care for him. I was extremely nervous about enrolling him in daycare. But from the moment that I walked in to Toddle Inn until now I have been thrilled about our decision to send him and later my daughter there. As a first time mother I knew very little about how the daycare setting worked. I was impressed with the structure that the Toddle Inn provided for the children even at such a young age. Each classroom is designed to meet the needs of the children in the age group it serves. Not only did the teachers provide excellent care they provided guidance for me as a first time mother. They helped me make decisions about simple but important things like when to switch to solid food, how many naps they should take and for how long and later they gave me great ideas on potty train and getting rid of the pacifier. I was so grateful for all of their advice. I felt comfortable going to them when I had any questions about what was best for my children. To me and my family the Toddle Inn is so much more than a Day Care. It is like an extension of our family. The staff demonstrates over and over again the love they have for their jobs and the kids. What they do is not an easy job. And they do it with such joy. The program at the Toddle Inn is incredible. The curriculum is well thought out and has provided a strong foundation for both my children. The facility is spotless, the food is healthy and the staff is excellent!! I love the wide variety of special activities that are planned for the kids. Things like dance class, karate, library time, field trips, holiday celebrations; the list is endless. I could not believe all of the dedication and hard work that goes into making the kids’ experience really special. I cannot say enough about Toddle Inn and what it has meant to me and my family. My children would not be the same had it not been for the Toddle Inn and the teachers that work there. The Toddle Inn not only provides a safe and affordable place for me to bring my children while I am working but they provide a reliable, consistent community that has been instrumental in the growth and development of both my children. I have and will continue to recommend Toddle Inn to anyone I know in need of daycare.

Five years ago, we found ourselves in a situation where our daycare was about to close and we needed somewhere safe and reliable to turn to – fast. We called Toddle Inn and the management jumped to action. Not only did they make room for our family, but also made room for friends of ours in a similar situation and hired some of the staff from our former daycare center that we all loved and trusted. Since that time, the staff at Toddle Inn has taken wonderful care of our two children and have been instrumental in helping them grow and thrive. I was struck by this today as I watched two members of the staff, who have become like our extended family, celebrate with true enthusiasm and warmth my youngest child’s latest accomplishment. Similarly, I watched these women interact with my daughter who no longer attends Toddle Inn, as they welcomed her back like a long-lost friend. We’ve met many wonderful families through Toddle Inn and, for us, these people and many of the staff members from Toddle Inn have made all the difference as we navigate the waters of raising our family.
