Talented Staff

“I am fortunate enough to have two sons who’ve received the love and care of the staff at Days Gone By. The atmosphere at Days Gone By is one of love and nurturing. They see each little child as a soul that is unique. They try to meet children where they are in their developmental journey, using positive interaction & reinforcement. Their approach to teaching discipline and encouraging good behavior and choices is admirable; I have certainly acquired a few parenting techniques from the talented staff!”
Casey K. (12 mo & 3 years)

Thoroughly Impressed

From the positive and caring staff, to the family fun events, to the clear communication, to the field trips, to accommodating our busy work schedules, to the cleanliness of the center – this is a top notch daycare. I would recommend it to anyone without hesitation. When you give someone your heart in the form of your children you expect the very best, and that is what you will find at Days Gone By.”

Treated Like Family

“Since the day they opened their doors, the staff has felt like family. The teachers are beyond excited to see my kids every morning and they give warm hugs when it’s time to be picked up. I feel confident my kids are with teachers who love them as much as I do. We are very blessed to be a part of Days Gone By.”

Days Gone By is an extension of our home and what we practice and teach at home is exactly like the care at Days Gone By. Their communication is great and knowing our kids are in such good hands while we are at work provides us peace of mind. Thank you to everyone at Days Gone By for loving our kids as much as we do!”

Exceptional Care

“All three of my children have gone to Days Gone By at different times. The care and compassion displayed by the staff is remarkable. Currently my youngest child, who is two-years old, goes to Days Gone By. Each day he is excited to attend. He tells us his teachers names and the names of some of his friends too. He often exclaims to us “Fun at daycare!” Days Gone By is a very clean center and they have the best practices with the children as well. The daily structure and learning environment they provide is exceptional!”
Rachel N. (2, 4, 6 years)

Wonderful Experience

“Our experience with 4K at Days Gone By was wonderful. Our daughter was excited to go every day. She made some great friends and it set a great base for kindergarten. She was more than prepared this year thanks to the strong start she received at Days Gone By.”
Valerie K. (5 years)


“After touring several agencies, we were thrilled to find Days Gone By. It’s been over four years and we still feel the same way. From our daughter’s first day as an infant we knew she was safe and well cared for. Each teacher has taken a genuine interest in her as an individual, in addition to stimulating and challenging her learning. The bonds our daughter formed with her teachers never made us doubt our choice.”
Danielle R. (4 years)

“Days Gone By is a wonderful daycare center with an excellent staff. I wish I had my son going here when he was younger. I couldn’t find a childcare center that was as flexible with the needs of my family. I highly recommend this place!”
