A Mommy and Daddy
at Penny Lane"
|Penny Lane has made our life incredibly pleasant during the past 3 1/2 years. Our short story is simple,
but rewarding for a full-time working Mommy and Daddy.
Our son has attended Penny Lane Preschool since he was 10 months old. His is currently 4 1/2. Penny
Lane and their entire staff have grown to be a large and integral part of our life since the beginning of
2004. When we originally contacted Penny Lane, we never dreamed we would be this pleased with the
care and schooling our son receives. He also receives 2 square meals per day provided by the Penny
He has been in four classrooms so far (infants, toddlers, 2-year olds, and 3-year olds) and recently
graduated to the 4-year old class. Every full-time teacher has been superb in her own way. They all
have experience and backgrounds or degrees in childcare and development. They each have been or
are very open with parents and report voluntarily on my child's activities, learning skills and behavior
on a daily basis.
In addition to the teaching curriculums for each classroom (including time for learning on computers),
all children participate in daily indoor/outdoor playtime activities, which develop social skills and
physical capabilities. Penny Lane has a large gym for wintertime or rainy weather and a large
playground, where age groups are separated, with playground equipment, a tricycle/bicycle area, and
planting areas for the children to plant flowers and vegetables. Each classroom also has daily arts and
Penny Lane sponsors various field trips throughout the year such as trips to pet stores, libraries, and
police stations. There are 2 Penny Lane shows annually that the parents are invited to attend: a holiday
show and a spring sing with graduation. All children participate with their classroom and get to
rehearse for each show and then perform on stage.
Penny Lane makes our life easier and less stressful than it could be. Since our son is an only child, we
are thrilled he has had the opportunity to make many special friends, both with children his age and the
teaching staff. He has excelled socially since being a port of the Penny Lane Family.
My husband and I stand behind the philosophies of the Penny Lane owners, staff and teachers, and
believe the combination of all makes for one of the best preschool centers for children of all ages.
|I am so happy that I chose Penny Lane for my daughter to attend. I feel comfortable and know she is
in good hands when she is dropped off. The teachers are wonderful and truly try to go the extra
mile to help when needed. I have seen such an improvement and change in my daughter after the
first week she is more outgoing, willing to try new foods and plays better alone and with others.
Thanks for all the extra care and attention that Penny Lane gives.

|I actually just want to recommend this daycare to anyone who is in need, because in the two years that I
have had my kids here there has not been one bad experience. The teachers are great, they care for the
kids as they were their own and they keep you as parents involved in
your child’s life even if you can't be there. I give my greatest appreciation to the teachers and staff at Penny
Lane thank you so much for being there to keep my children safe and in good hands.
