Testimonials from Ivy League Child/Day Care

"There isn't a day that goes by that we aren't thankful that our daughter attends Ivy League.
The staff are incredible and have a genuine interest in the day to day needs of the children at the center. Our daughter has been with them since she was 4 and they provided her with the solid foundation of learning that helped her to thrive when she started Elementary school. We will be forever grateful that they have been a part of our lives."


"I cannot say enough good things about Ivy League. The staff is so warm, loving and caring.
I know they all love my daughter very much and give her the best possible care.
Whenever I stop in they are always doing something fun and she is having a great time.
I'm amazed at the things she has already learned - her alphabet, counting in English and Spanish, colors, etc - and she's not even 2!
I feel like the staff are truly my partners in raising my daughter - they have always been accommodating of any special requests I had and keep me posted on her daily activities.
My daughter loves to go to day-care every morning, and even cheers when we pull into the lot, which is such a gift.
I had a really tough time with the idea of going back to work and leaving my child with someone else.
But knowing she is so happy and is getting the best possible care has made it easy.
I feel so blessed to have such wonderful care for my daughter and don't know what I would do without it!"


"We are so grateful to have a place like Ivy League to take our kids each day!
There has never been a day where our kids did not look forward to going to Ivy League to see their friends, which brings great peace of mind to us as working parents.
The staff are truly caring and patient. They are devoted to the development of each child.
We are amazed at the progress our almost three year old has made under the direction of her teachers.
She can count, recite the alphabet, skip, hop, and gallop, speak in Spanish, and recognize numbers, letters, and shapes among other things.
Thank you Ivy League for all you do for our children!"


"The Ivy League has proven to be a wonderful choice for our family’s day-care needs.
Our children are not simply being watched while we are at work each day.
They are receiving a solid preschool education, and seem to have a lot of fun in the process.
The facilities are safe and clean, and the teachers are all highly trained professionals.
As an added bonus, if my kids never make it to Harvard, they can still say that they are “Ivy League” graduates."

"Having to find child care is not an easy task but we knew from our first walk through that Ivy League was different.
Chris, Patty and all the teachers truly care about the kids and enjoy spending time with them.
My boys have been there for 5 years now and they still look forward to going!
What a blessing it is to not have to worry about your kids while you are at work and for them to be happy when you pick them up."


"I will be forever grateful for having found and chosen Ivy League.
There is nothing more stressful as a new parent then having to make decisions about who will care for your child.
While a day-care center is not for everyone, Ivy League has been the right choice for us and I will be forever grateful to the staff and administrators for providing our kids with a safe, educational and caring environment."


"When your child looks forward to going each day and brings new skills home all the time, that says a lot about a child care program!
The Ivy League has been tremendous in developing the skills needed for our children to grow.
Heck, they even get to play sports both indoors and out, so if our children become some type of sports all-star, we can say it all started back at "The League"... Ivy League that is!
Cheers to the entire team at Ivy League."

"Ivy League holds such a special place in my heart! I have had the pleasure of working there in past years and now my daughter attends in the infant room.
Every staff member in this facility is so welcoming and is always willing to assist in any way.
As a new mom, they are always helpful when I have questions and I truly feel like there is a constant team effort when it comes to the care of my daughter.
Daily communication from teachers, friendly faces, and well-educated staff members really made the decision to attend Ivy League very easy for my family.
I will always recommend families to Ivy League!"


"We have entrusted The Ivy League with the care of our two youngest children for close to three years now and have never been disappointed.
The Ivy League has exceeded our expectations of a day-care facility on so many levels.
I cannot say enough about the staff and teachers at the center, they are the most caring, positive, creative and friendly group of people I have ever come in contact with.
My children are excited to go to “Preschool” every morning and that is in large part to the people who care for them while they are there.
I have always been impressed with the curriculum at the center and their ability to make learning fun for our son and daughter.
The facility is well set-up for the different age groups and always clean.
We have recommended The Ivy League to several friends and acquaintances and will continue to do so because we believe they are a top notch day-care facility."


"We found the Ivy League after having bad experiences with both an in-home day-care and another center here in Lincoln.
Needless to say, we were very hesitant to trust the care of our children to anyone.
From day one we have never looked back. There is no comparison in our minds to the level of care that our children receive here.
The staff truly cares for each child, and by being a part of the Ivy League you are a part of an incredible “family”.
They not only provide care and guidance, but the teachers make learning so much fun!
From the infant room to the preschool rooms, the children are challenged and encouraged at every stage.
Our children have attended since our oldest was 2 years old. She is now 10 & loves to go back and see the teachers!
Our youngest will be turning 5 this summer and it is truly amazing how much all three of our children have learned both socially and academically.
We are forever grateful to the Ivy League for the amazing gift they have given to our family!"

"I have had kids at the Ivy League since 2001.
It is a wonderful facility and my kids love the indoor gym!
I think the longevity of the staff and teachers speaks for itself.
The teachers do an outstanding job of preparing the kids for school, much better than I could ever do!"


"The teachers and administrators at Ivy League are fantastic.
They sincerely care about your children, their learning, safety and overall happiness.
The facilities are always clean but not sterile feeling.
The activities are abundant and they frequently change out the sensory development items to give the children new experiences.
To top it off, the caregiver turnover is the lowest we have seen in our many years at several local child-care facilities.
I highly recommend Ivy League for the care of your children, they are second to none.
We just wish we would have discovered them sooner!"


“The thought of leaving my newborn with people I didn’t know and going back to work after maternity leave was such a scary thought that I seriously considered quitting my job. But the teachers in the infant room made the transition much easier. Now he’s a toddler and loves playing with his friends and teachers at day-care!”


Ivy League is our home away from home.
We have never felt as comfortable leaving our children with providers than we do at the Ivy League.
The teachers are wonderful and take the time to get to know each and every child.
There is little turnaround so the kids feel comfortable and know they are going to see the same happy and caring faces every day.
You can walk in to the Ivy League at any time and see happy children doing fun activities and learning as they do them!
I remember one of the first things Chris said to us when we were considering bringing our kids to the Ivy League, "You don't need to make an appointment just stop by any time."
We did just that and couldn't be happier with our decision.
They have prepared our kids well for elementary school and they make learning fun.
Even when the kids think they are just playing they are actually learning lots of new things!
You know when your kids say, "Ms. Patti doesn't make cheesies like that or Ms. Patti doesn't make it that way, can't you make it like Ms Patti?" that you are in trouble! :)
Our boys have never not wanted to go to Ivy League. They love seeing their friends and doing all of the fun activities. The teachers and directors are first class and we couldn't be luckier to have them in our lives.
They do make a difference in our children's lives. Just like our son told us the other day, "Mom when you're upset you can't just yell, you have to use your words and tell your friends what you want."
Not every place is going to treat your children like their own but at Ivy League that is exactly what you get!
