Kirsten’s Daycare provided our children with a safe and nurturing environment for five years. Kirsten and her assistants offered amazing love and care for them as infants, and important curriculum as toddlers and preschoolers. We were able to see their educational, emotional and social growth while in Kirsten’s care. If you are interested in having total peace of mind that your child is in good hands, I would send your child to Kirsten!

We consider ourselves lucky to have been a part of Kirsten's day care for over two years. As an educator I know that people are called to certain professions, and for Kirsten it is clear she has found her calling. From day one our daughter flourished in Kirsten's care and the loving, safe environment she creates for all children. Kirsten manages to provide the family-like feeling of an in-home day care with the high standards, organization, and communication of center; it truly is the perfect balance. We have and continue to recommend Kirsten to all expecting friends who are looking for the best care possible.

Ms. K’s Day Care has always been a loving and nurturing environment for my 1 and 3 year old. Since they were tiny they have had exposure to a variety of learning opportunities, including art, music, literacy, social skills, and a fantastic outdoor space. The indoor daycare space is safe, clean, and has been like a second home for my son and daughter. Ms. K and her two assistants are excellent at providing age appropriate activities and expectations for multi-age learners, from infants to preschoolers.

Finding great childcare isn’t easy, but I never hesitated leaving them here. Both my kids love going to Ms. K’s

I am writing this recommendation in regards to our experience with Kirsten’s Daycare during the 2012-2013 school year. It was difficult leaving our son with someone other than a family member, but Kirsten made it easy. She is very patient and kind with the kids, and soon we realized that she was creative too! Our son came home with adorable crafts. We also like the fact that she works on a program called Al’s Pals with the children, it shows us what he is learning so we can reinforce it at home. Another aspect that we love about Kirsten’s Daycare is the house and yard. The basement and backyard are set up perfectly for a daycare, yet have the “in home” feeling you do not see with public child care. Also knowing that Ms. K’s mother, an in home daycare provider herself before retirement, is close by in an emergency, was good piece of mind. Kirsten works closely with state approved programs to make sure she adheres to the laws of having an in home daycare facility, which also means she serves healthy meals and snacks. Not having to worry about packing our son his milk and food was a huge worry off of our minds, since being a working parent is hard enough! Payment is easy too, since everything is online. We would recommend Kirsten’s Daycare to anyone looking for a kind and patient, motherly type of provider, with a caring and an educationally/socially nurturing environment in which to send your children. We think Kirsten is awesome.

Sincerely, Jennifer and Sean Craft

Kirsten Lukas has been providing daytime care for our son, John, for more than a year and a half. While we initially chose Kirsten's Daycare because of her ideal facilities, convenient location, and focus on active outdoors play, we've come to realize that she provides so much more. Under her care, John has blossomed into a confident extroverted toddler.


Kirsten utilizes several programs in her day care, including Buttercups, Al's Pals, and Portage assessments. As parents, we find the tools used in Al's Pals and the information provided by Portage invaluable. Kirsten keeps an eye on any social and behavioral concerns we have about John and provides us with feedback on areas where he excels or struggles. Additionally, she provides a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks. The breakfast is especially useful as it provides a motivation for John on mornings when he isn't excited about leaving his parents for the day. Our son is a picky eater and we appreciate him getting exposed to new foods at Ms. K's house and, occasionally, she'll even discover a new food that he'll eat.


Whenever the weather cooperates, Kirsten takes the children outside to play in her beautiful backyard, which he really enjoys. She is very conscientious and always protects them with sunscreen and bug spray when necessary. She teaches the kids through play and exposes them to music, make-believe and learning activities in a caring and respectful environment. We couldn't be happier with the care our son receives from Kirsten.

Kirsten has our highest endorsement as we have full trust and confidence in her abilities and performance – which is why we entrust her during the work week with our most precious responsibility, our daughter and son.

Kirsten has been our daycare provider for two years now. As a former teacher, Kirsten offers our two children a structured day full of wonderful educational, physical and social activities that are engaging and fun for our kids.


In addition, Kirsten provides a safe and loving environment and, as an educator myself, it is reassuring to know that our babies are in such great hands. As a working mother, it is difficult to be away from my children, but I take comfort in the idea that I have seen such growth in our two year old daughter and five month old son.


It is such a relief to have a reliable, trustworthy individual watching over our children, and it is for this reason that my husband and I fully endorse Kirsten as our daycare provider.
