Some Comments from Parents
My son is so happy here, and his teacher Ms.Rita is incredible. She even thought of him this week and bought him a birthday present! (: I honestly have nothing but good things to say about this daycare. It's clean, everyone's so nice, the kids all seem happy and smart. I was nervous about putting him in daycare, but now I don't even know why I was nervous lol. Thank you guys for taking such good care of Ollie!
I just want to take a moment and send a special THANK YOU to Ms. Maria and Ms. Tracey!! I have been at Family Partners, turned Enchanted Forest Academy for almost 6 years! Ms. Maria has seen my oldest grow up and start VPK and is currently watching over my littlest while in Ms. Tracey's Class! I've been so lucky to have Ms. Tracey as both of daughters K2 teachers, where their minds really start to run wild! Her curriculum and class projects are excellent and Each of these ladies provides the love, attention and kindness to my children as if they were they're own! It's an amazing feeling when you have 100% trust in your children's caregivers. I could go on and on about how wonderful they are but i just want them to know how appreciative I am for all they do! Ms. Rita has also been a GEM to each of girls while they were 1, turning 2... Their vocabulary and sign language skills coming out of her class was impeccable. I am still in awe of Ms. Rita and Ms. Tracey and how they magically get all the kids to sleep during nap time! They are phenomenal for sure!!! THANK you for loving my girls !!! :)
This daycare has been wonderful for both of my children. I am very appreciative for Mrs. Inez, Mrs.Tracey, Mrs.Rita, and Mrs.Maria!!! They are all exceptional and keep up with all of the kids amazingly. You can tell they truly care about each and everyone of them and that they are very experienced with many years at this facility. It feels like family with these teachers. My husband and I feel safe with them there and know that they will have a great time with all of the outside play and special activities they plan. My children have learned so much there so I am eternally grateful. I had moved around to a couple different daycares before this one and been at this one for 5 years now all because of these teachers! Thank you!
Miss Maria, Tracey, Rita, Sam, Katie, Angie are ALL wonderful teachers. Could not have asked for better staff to nurture my child. He's been at this facility since he was 12 weeks old and he'll be in VPK this year.
After staying at home with my daughter for 2 1/2 years, it was time to go back to work. I visited Turtle Tots, La' Petite, Castle Brook and Grace Learning Academy and a couple others I totally forgot the names of (says a lot). After visiting a total of 9 centers, Enchanted Forest Academy was the best place for my daughter and I. I was immediately taken aback by how calm and quiet the facility was when I walked in. Nothing worse than walking in to disarray; kids running, screaming, rolling around on the floor and such! Beth, the Director and Maria, not sure her title but does everything and knows the history of the facility, are amazing!!! Don Sutton, the owner was very responsive with questions via email. The class sizes are super small, a huge + for me. The lesson plan, daily schedule and menus are always clearly posted. The facility is large and spacious. There's a separate "cafeteria" for the children to eat in. Many of the teachers have been at this facility for 20+ years and that's a testament to the controlled environment. The facility always smells fresh. The children are not "babysat" and left to individual play all day. I love the structure. I can't say enough about Miss Tracey and Miss Michelle in the 2-3 year old class! I just love it here.
We love Ms Sam!! My son Gio is in her class and he loves to go to school everyday! She is great with all of the kids and you can tell she loves them and loves her job 😊 Thanks for all you do everyday!
My kids go to after school there and they absolutely LOVE it and their teacher Mrs. Denise. I enjoy being able to walk in and being greeted by Mrs. Stephanie, no matter if my day was going left, "HEY BABY DOLL" sure makes everything all right. Thank You Mr. Don, Family and Staff for all that you do . It does not go unnoticed . Blessings to you all
We have been apart of this daycare family for almost 8 years. We have 3 boys who are there now. The owner, Mr Don, is fabulous. So easy to talk to and really loves the staff, families , and kids. Ms. Stephanie, the director is so full of life and loves our boys like her own. Ms Maria is like the momma of the house, been there forever, and still has more love to give. The teachers make this place incredible! No only do they love all our boys, their intelligence has grown so much by being with them and the other kids. (plus potty training help is a BIG plus 😊). We love Ms Kristen (infants), Ms Brenda & Ms Rita (ones), Ms. Tracy and Ms Fonda (twos), and Ms Denise (3-4 year olds). We switched daycares once for 1 month, thinking it would be better, but we came right back because there is no one like the Enchanted Forest teachers. Best choice for any St Augustine family!
We had our little one in Enchanted Forest since he was six weeks old and we couldn’t ask for a better group. Ms. Kristen cared for him like one of her own and we had a very hard time leaving. Thank you everyone!
They are great with the children my daughter loves going there they do a lot of fun things but also a lot of learning she's come so far since she started
Mrs Tracey in the 2 year old class is awesome. My granddaughter loves her. Tracey treats all the children like her own. She always welcomes the kids with a smile on her face. Thank you Tracey for all you do. Izzy Boom Boom loves you! Thanks for the great job! Enchanted Forest is the best daycare that I have used! Besides Ms. Tracey being great! All the staff is awesome there. they all treat you like family. Way to go Mr Don & Mrs. Stephanie for having and running a super awesome daycare.
