Colleenies Beanies has been so great for our son Jack. He was at an in house daycare for 3 1/2 years and he transitioned so well to his new daycare. Jack enjoys going to play with his friends. There are always new things to do. He also loves his teachers. We couldn't be happier with the center.

  • Chris

When we moved to Farmington, we visited numerous day care centers, and there was no question that Colleenies Beanies was the right choice! The staff is warm, caring, and accessible. The environment is bright, cheery, and safe. The curriculum and schedule present the perfect balance of structure and opportunity for self-directed play and learning. We have been 100% confident and satisfied with our decision since day one, and it has been a great experience for our son.

The infant program at Colleenies Beanies is absolutely fabulous. We felt very fortunate to get a spot for our son. The program is extremely well run, with one of the best infant teachers we have ever met. Ms. Sandra runs a safe, well organized and educational program that is appropriately adjusted for each infant's stage of development. The environment is well baby proofed and pristine, allowing the babies to explore the space all day long without any concerns. Each child is very well taken care of and gets lots of personal attention, as well as a schedule that is adjusted to the needs of the child. In addition, Ms. Sandra develops an entire curriculum for the babies so that they are actively learning all day long. We were amazed by how much our son flourished on a daily basis and how well he was communicating with us (she teaches the babies to sign). Also, Ms. Sandra kept us very well informed on what type of day our son had in her room and also provided us with a detailed, written report accounting his daily activities. We absolutely loved this infant program and we continue to be grateful for the opportunity for our son to be part of this great community.

Everyday I ask our toddler what she did in school she replies "I learned!"  My husband is very impressed with the activities and progress, with shapes and days of the week, she has made in such a short time.  It is the perfect marriage of a home daycare and the professional stability and atmosphere of a center.  We have complete confidence leaving our infant daughter - second best thing to being home with her!  Staff is always engaged and eager to give feedback.

Best kept secret in Farmington!

Colleen is a lovely person who has helped facilitate the growth of my children, over the past three years.  My four year old daughter enjoys her preschool program three days a week.  Colleenies Beanies has a competent, loving staff who will treat your children like their own.

  • Eric & Kristen Johnson

Prior to our daughter attending daycare, we did our research on several other daycares looking for a safe, loving, structured and educational environment.  We determined Colleen's daycare was the right choice for us.   Our daughter began daycare at three months of age with Colleen and continues to attend her daycare over three years later.  We've been more than satisfied with the educational and creative curriculum that Colleen has provided our daughter.   We are also impressed with the Christian aspect of Colleen's daycare and feel that our daughter is being cared for in a loving and happy setting that is fun...all at the same time!

When I leave my kids at daycare with Colleen, I never have to worry about them.  I know they are in good hands.  Colleen loves her daycare kids like her own.  She is a wonderful teacher and provider and takes great pride in her daycare.  I cannot imagine my kids going anyplace else for care.

  • Bonnie and Jason

Our children have been going to Colleen for childcare for two and a half years.  When we moved our son to Colleen's daycare the week before he turned one, I was very nervous about his transition.  He was in such a loving and caring environment that he was at home at Colleen's daycare after the first day.  Colleen ensures that the children use manners and are respectful to each other.  She has learning time for each of the age groups.  Colleen knows that children learn the quickest in their youngest years.   Our three year old is already reading and I give the credit to Colleen.   Our children love her and love going to daycare.

While walking out to their car Aiden was goofing around with his Mom.  He turned around and yelled "I am going to give you grey hairs!!!"
