Parent Testimonial:

“We have had the pleasure of knowing Ixayana for three years. She has taught both of our kids and is also our first call babysitter. Starting at Appletree, we were first-time parents and stressed/worried about EVERYTHING. She put our mind at ease with her consistent care at drop-offs, always listening about our daughter’s night while comforting and cuddling her and giving us extra updates and photos throughout the day without asking. To be very honest, our daughter was a hard baby. Hard! And she was ALWAYS smiling at drop-off with her. When we had our son, we didn’t have any of those same worries just knowing she would be there. She goes above and beyond with caring for children and is very intuitive about their needs. I never have to remind her of anything or give her direction because she’s typically a step ahead of me knowing what they need/want/capable of. I could not think of another person more deserving for the Best of the Bunch award than her!”

Thank you Ms. Ixayana for all you do for the children and families you serve.
