Our son has been attending Allie and Friends Daycare for the Last 7 months. The school provides an amazing caring and nurturing learning environment for our son. He is constantly learning skills and gaining experiences that are important for children at his age but so often missed until later. All of the teachers are very enthusiastic about their work and about the company they work for, which is always a good sign. Because of our flexible work schedules, we love our ability to drop in at any time to pick up or drop off our son or just to say hi. The daily activity reports are a nice way to keep track of not only what he was learning about but also his eating and his bathroom use, which his helpful for meal planning, potty training and potentially useful diagnostic information. The staff is wonderful about calling us should our little guy become sick. During one of his sick days we were happy to have a sincere call to check in on him to ensure he was doing better. The staff treat him and us like family and we could not be happier.

Why I have chosen and LOVE Allie & Friends Daycare;
When my daughter was born I was extremely nervous about finding a daycare I could depend on and trust. I searched throughout Gardnerville/Minden and even visited a few private home facilities.
When I walked into Allie & Friends I knew that this was where my 11 week old infant was going to go. The atmosphere was clean & beautiful and the staff warm & friendly. I realized it was more expensive than the other places I had looked at but would do whatever I could to afford it.
My daughter is now 4 years old and I owe a great deal to Allie & Friends. While I am busy working as a single, full-time mom, they are teaching her extraordinary things. What I think sets them as “above & beyond” is all the amazing things they teach and experience with the kids. My daughter is extremely advanced for her age. She can spell her first, middle & last name, can count to 100 almost perfectly, knows her colors, shapes, the alphabet (forwards & BACKWARDS), can recognize sight words and is well on her way to reading, knows the days of the week, understands amazing things from science lessons (water, ice, flotation, texture, etc.) knows and speaks Spanish and gets read to each day, comes home singing joyous songs and loves Jesus. The Allie & Friends staff loves her and she in turn adores each one of them. They go on walks, buggy rides and eat lunch at the duck pond, have gone on several field trips, pick apples, carve pumpkins, bake from scratch, experience what each season brings, have a show and tell day, a class pet they get to hold, put on holiday feasts and shows….I could go on & on!!
I cannot say enough positive things about Allie & Friends. I couldn’t be happier with the decision I have made, the friendships that I have with the other parents & loving, caring, Christian staff, the lessons being taught and learned and the foundation of the Lord being instilled in my very active, loving, beautiful, smart, strong and independent child.

When relocating to the area, my husband and I were very nervous about finding the right daycare for our son. It is never easy to leave your first born and only child in the hands of others, but as most of us know we have to work to support our households. I did research and wanted a facility that had Christian values as well as a comfortable family-like atmosphere and feeling. We went to Allie and Friends and at the end of our walk though, Mrs. Maria encouraged us to visit other daycares in the area to ensure that we chose the right place for our family and especially our son. As my husband and I drove away, we both looked at each other and knew we would look no further, we had found our home. We called and enrolled our son the next day.
Since then, our year old son has grown leaps and bounds in the months he has been attending Allie and Friends. He is happy and cheerful when we drop him off and when we pick him up. There are even times he pouts because he doesn’t want to leave! We are so happy and pleased with Mrs. Gabby, Mrs. Toni, Mrs. Maria, and the others who are enriching our son’s life and easing our worries by taking wonderful care of him. We love the fact that our son is learning a vocabulary mixed with Spanish and English. We love that their lessons are based on Christian values and love. Above all, we love that our son is happy, healthy, and well taken care of in a positive, nurturing environment. We would have no other choice then Allie and Friends for our son’s daycare needs. We are so very thankful that we found them!

Allie and Friends has been an amazing stepping stone for our daughter. We appreciate all of the effort that goes into teaching our children to respect one another as well as their environment. As from a curricular standpoint, our daughter comes home daily with knowledge of different countries, cultures, seasons, numbers, reading and other important skills. We also appreciate the loving kindness that each teacher and aid exudes toward the children. We have already referred three people to Allie and Friends over the years and will continue to do so as we truly believe in the value of an Allie and Friends experience.

After a lengthy research on all of the local daycare center’s; Allie and Friends, has not only met, but exceeded our expectations. We have been with Allie and Friends since 2009 and will continue to stay with them until our youngest son graduates from their prestigious academic pre-school program, which recently expanded into the bilingual program and Im seeing a lot of positive feedback coming from my four year old. Thank you for that Allie’s.

We have grown with Allie and Friends, and when their expansion took place during the transition, they continued to provide quality care for our boys. Not only has Allie and Friends, made us feel comfortable and secure to leave our most precious commodities in their care, but they have gone above and beyond to make sure that our boys, who struggle with anxiety feel safe and loved with patience, comforting voices and hugs.

I asked my son who has moved onto Kindergarten what his favorite part of Allie and Friends was to him and he responded with, “when they rub our backs and help us fall asleep during nap time.” Something he misses so much today. Our youngest son is in the preschool prep class with Miss Josie and Miss Tara and he absolutely adores them, and has a strong bond with both of them. Drop off’s are a breeze!

Allie’s philosophy of love, care, security, patience and understanding is what this world needs more of. We are proud to have our boys be a part of that high-level of compassion. We are truly grateful for the staff at Allie and Friends, they have become family to us and plan on keeping in close contact with them as the future progresses for our boys. Thank you, A Team!
