"I have many friends who often tell me about the terrible experiences at their day care. Being a teacher, it was very important to me to find a center for my children where they could learn and acquire developmental skills that were appropriate for their age. I have two children and therefore have been with Orion for almost five years now and it has been the best decision I could have ever made for my children. It is such a relief to know that I am leaving my child in a safe and caring environment where the emphasis is on sharing and being a good friend. Not to mention their enriching curriculum at every stage. Upon entering Kindergarten, my son was so well prepared due to the wonderful job that the teachers at Orion did with him. I love that Orion has a private outdoor area that is safe and fun for my child to play in. Orion also offers a flexible schedule with many options to choose from. I know when I was looking at other daycares many of them only offered full time. I highly recommend Orion Child Development Center to anyone who is exploring the option for day care, pre-school or pre-kindergarten."
"The greatest asset the daycare has to offer is the staff. The staff are very caring and loving. They do not treat the children in a cookie cutter environment. The children are obviously loved and treated individually with love and understanding. You can have the most modern school, the best toys, rules to satisfy everyone, but if you do not have caring, nurturing staff that are loving and giving, recognizing each child as an individual with individual needs then you just have a cookie cutter environment. The staff I found here are extremely special. I just do not hear other parents at other day cares expressing the value of the staff. My granddaughter spends 6 to 8 hours a day here, the people who care for her have a strong influence on her values and personality. I feel she is in a thriving environment."
"We are very pleased with the centers performance, very happy with the outdoor opportunities for the children. Very happy with all of the care givers, they are very attentive, caring people who are in-tune to the individual needs of the children."
"Our time at Orion has been such a positive experience. We have been there for 7 years. The highest accolades go to the owners, director, and staff. I feel my children have had loving nurturing care. From infant years through to the pre-k years, it has been exciting to watch them learn and grow. Orion has been one of the biggest influences on their lives. They are well prepared for their schooling and social lives. As a parent, I have always felt comfortable and at ease knowing that my children were taken care of so well. Please let us know if anyone needs a reference for childcare. We would be glad to pass along our referral. We will miss you all. Take heart in the fact that you are enriching the lives of little ones in our community."
"I want to thank everyone at Orion. Over the past years everyone has become like family to us. You have given my kids love, care, morals and a great start to their future and for that I will always be grateful. Orion is an exceptional place and I feel blessed my kids were a part of it. We are looking forward to a new and exciting future, but there is a big part of us that is sad that we won’t be walking in those doors on Monday. Hopefully we will see everyone around the holidays. Everyone take care and I can’t say thank you enough for all you have done for my kids and myself."
