"LCFC has been a second home to my 3 children for the past 8 years. Kandis and her staff have always been incredibly supportive and their understanding of the needs of today's family is greatly appreciated. In particular, the children have loved the summer programming and the home-cooked food and my husband and I have valued the consistency in staffing, which means a familiar face is there to greet your children each morning. I take it as a positive sign when your children are not in any rush to leave the center at the end of the day!"

"I have been thrilled with the care that our children receive at LCFC. The staff and caretakers go over and above expectations to ensure that the children are safe, well-cared for and enjoy their time there. They obviously care a great deal for the children and it appears that for them, this is much more than a job. The environment is a calm, organized and stimulating one overall and the staff and caretakers feel more like extended family members as they play such a pivotal role in our children's lives. On a personal note, the LCFC has been wonderful in helping us to ensure our children's specific dietary needs are met, which can be very challenging. I really can't speak highly enough about the LCFC. This is a wonderful daycare and I feel very lucky that my children are a part of its larger community."

"Our boys have enjoyed the activities, the care and healthy menu at LCFC since before they were one year old. They adjust well to the routines, have made many friends and learned a lot from the caregivers at LCFC. These past 6 years have been a wonderful experience for our family, thank you!"

"When our family contacted the Laurentian Child and Family Center (LCFC) to inquire about their infant program we also needed services that could care for an infant with special needs. Coupled with trying to secure a day care spot for our daughter, Ella, we were also concerned about feeling comfortable leaving her in the hands of others for the first time.  Much to our relief, we were invited to visit the LCFC and talk with the staff about Ella’s situation.  When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and provided a tour of the day care with a special focus on the Infant Program.  Watching Ella explore the room with uninhibited curiosity and the staff respond to her in such a caring and compassionate manner, we quickly became aware that LCFC was the best choice for our family.  Many years later, Ella continues to grow and thrive at the LCFC with the on-going support and guidance from the staff.  There are many staff members who have played an essential part in Ella’s healthy development.  I cannot thank everyone enough at LCFC for helping our family through many growing pains as well as sharing their good sense of humor.  As parents we continue to observe Ella to receive unconditional love and acceptance at a place that we all now consider a second home."
