“In the past year that our son has been at HCD we have not only seen a vast improvement in his intellectual abilities but also with his social skills, his behavior and his faith in God. One of our fears from transitioning from an in-home daycare to a “facility” was that he would become a “number.” We were afraid that the staff would change frequently and that we would have no idea what his day-to-day activities were. We found out very quickly that HCD is NOT your typical daycare. They truly are a family. Each and every staff member knows my child, and knows my name when I walk through the door. There truly is a sense of stability. I tell everyone I know about HCD. Not only do they care about the children, they care about the families as well and will go to great lengths to help out whenever possible. My son loves all of his teachers -- he is constantly talking about how much fun he has at “school”. The daily lessons are faith-based and are presented in a way that he can remember what he has learned from day-to-day. I absolutely LOVE the real world application of Bible stories and Christ’s teachings. He loves to pray, and he loves to help others because “that is what Jesus teaches us to do.” How many 3 year olds do you know that UNDERSTAND faith? It truly amazes me. We were extremely lucky to find HCD and there is NO doubt in my mind that this is the best and most nurturing environment available for him.”

“I call in and check on my son quite a bit and whoever I talk to is always happy to give me an update on him. Also, from time to time, I will get a picture or two emailed to me. I absolutely love that! Those emails put a smile on my face every time!”
– Ausha Ayers, HCD Parent
“Thanks again for taking such great care of our daughter. It is such a blessing to know that she is loved and cared for and safe while I am working.”
“My children have flourished at Harvest Christian Daycare! It feels so good to know that they are safe and well cared for, and that each day they are engaged in so many creative activities that teach them about our world and about Jesus.”
– Susan Demorest, HCD Parent
“The staff at Harvest Christian Daycare are wonderful! My son loves his teachers and looks forward to being there every day! They do a wonderful job communicating with me on how his day is going and give my son the love and attention he desires! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for child care! Definitely an A+ facility!”
– Kelly Attwood, HCD Parent
“Nothing compares to the security that comes with the knowledge that you have chosen the right child care provider. Knowing your kids are safe and happy when you can’t be with them is invaluable. I have that feeling every day when I drop my boys off at HCD. I am confident my boys are being well cared for, socializing with kids their own age in a structured environment, and receiving lots of one-on-one attention from HCD staff. I can tell from the comments I receive from HCD staff about my kids at the end of the day that they really know and care about my children, as well as recognize them for their own individual personalities and preferences. In the morning when my 5 year old leaves me in his dust to jump into the arms of his beloved Miss Danie, there is no doubt in my mind we are where we’re supposed to be.”
– Sarah Montgomery, HCD Parent
“I highly recommend Harvest Christian Daycare. The staff is caring and attentive to the needs of each child. The center is always very clean and they offer many different types of activities and learning experiences for children of all ages. My children have received a lot of one-on-one attention, and the staff does a great job communicating with parents. They all work together as a team to create a positive, Christian environment that helps all children to grow and learn. They value each child and the family unit as a whole. I feel blessed to have found such a wonderful, loving place for my children to go each day. I know they are getting loved and cared for each day as I would care for them and that is what makes this daycare so incredible!”
– Leslie Panos, HCD Parent

"I want to thank you for how flexible you have been with my ever changing schedule. I was panicked after looking for daycare at first trying to find someplace that was acceptable and able to work with me. You have all been so wonderful! Also, I want to compliment Bonnie, Susan, and Jocelyn on how wonderful they are with my daughter. She is really enjoying going to "school" and never hesitates to join the class when they are present."
– Becky Caldwell, HCD Parent
"We have thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Harvest and if anything changes in the future, we will definitely be back! Thanks so much for all you've done and continue to do at Harvest. Brian and I have really enjoyed working with you!"
– Larissa Heimer, HCD Parent
"Just letting you know that Cooper did GREAT when I dropped him off. He took in Henry (his doll from home) and he showed Miss Joyce who did great and was excited to see his friend. She then said Cooper you can play with him for a few minutes while you sit by me and have some quiet time. He sat down, watched me leave and didn’t cry. I was on top of the world!"
– Kristie Clark, HCD Parent
"I had my son at a different daycare and had a horrible experience, and when my daughter was in your care I know she received the best care possible and you guys are a wonderful group of people."
– Nichole Wolfe, HCD Parent
"I just wanted to take a moment to tell you what a great program that was on Sunday, especially for the kids. The $25 gift cards to all of the kids was such a generous gift, not to mention the bikes that were given away! We got a kick out of the nativity skit and our son loved clapping with everyone. I think we all enjoyed ourselves and we certainly appreciate both the gift card and the bike our son received."
