Check out what some of our current and graduated families have said about us.
"It is apparent how much all of the teachers love what they are doing and truly care about all the kids."
"We are so blessed to have such caring people watching our children."
"Thanks for helping make COT our child's second home, full of loving memories."
"You have such a big heart and deal with such little hands every day!"
"COT is a very well organized childcare program orchestrated to educate our children in a well-rounded, progressive manner. It is one of the most concerned, loving and caring schools that I have ever experienced."
"We moved our daughter to COT after having an unsatisfactory experience at another local daycare. Previously, we’d experienced a lot of staff and director turnover, which created a negative experience for our daughter who didn’t like going to daycare. At COT, the director is also the owner. As a small business owner, it is clear that Aleta has a passion for what she does and this is reflected in the staff she hires and the atmosphere at the center. This is more than a daycare – it’s a fun, supportive, learning center that our daughter loves. It’s evident on the smile she has each time we go through the COT door."
"I can’t say enough about our daughter’s teachers; they talk so highly of her and sincerely care about her! Everyday we drop our daughter off she grabs for both teachers, this makes me feel so good. We are blessed to be part of a great place! Keep up the GREAT work!"
"Our family absolutely loves COT. We are going to miss you all so much. I’m so grateful for everything that you’ve taught our daughter. Not only the education aspect, but also the values. I can only hope to find somewhere half as great as COT in CT. Thank you for everything that you’ve done for our family. You have become such an important part of our lives!"
"Thank you so much for your years of dedication, caring and nurturing. It is an extremely hard decision when deciding where to take your first newborn when returning back to work. We are so glad that we chose Children of Tomorrow and proud to say that our children go to an exceptional learning center not a daycare. Not only does COT care and love for them, they encourage development during critical years in their lives. Learning is not just a part of the day, it is introduced in a fun and exciting way so that they can continue to be what they are…kids. During the preschool years, COT has done an extraordinary job of going above and beyond to prepare these children mentally, socially and emotionally for their next journey in life. Thank you so much for understanding that our children mean the world to us and for being an important part of their lives."

"Through education and experience, my husband and I have come to believe that the first few years of a child’s life are crucial to their development and will affect in many ways who they become in later years. When we found out we were pregnant with our first child, we knew that finding the best daycare was extremely important to us. We toured many daycare centers in the area, and when we arrived to COT (Children of Tomorrow) we both knew that our search was over.
During our tour we noticed that the infant room was warm, calm, and loving, not cold and sterile like many we had seen. The teachers seemed educated, mature, experienced, and excited to be doing what they love. The overall focus of the school seemed to be on the children and providing them with an exciting, fun, and comfortable environment. One of the things we noticed as soon as we walked in the door was all the artwork the children had done was hung at their height and not the parents height, a simple thing that made it clear COT’s focus was on the children and not trying to impress the parents.
We now have two children who attend COT and our experience continues to be wonderful. We love how much our children are learning every day. There are many things they get to experience at COT that we just wouldn’t be able to provide them at home. The group activities and special guests from the community are so important to their growth both academically and socially. The teachers are truly engaging and empowering the children and offer copious amounts of love and support. We can’t say enough about how much we appreciate all the teachers and staff at COT and the wonderful service they continue to provide our family."

"I cannot say enough about Children of Tomorrow! My twins and I become part of their family back in 2003 after my previous child care center closed. We immediately felt at home based on the welcoming staff, the way my kids responded to their teachers, and the care and nurturing provided by all people in the center. As a result of my experience, I became and active part of their Board as a way to "pay back" to the center the wonderful services they provided for my kids.
If I had to choose just a couple of reasons I chose Children of Tomorrow, it really comes down to caring, professionalism and that personal touch. During our time there, I went through a tough time personally, and there was NEVER a doubt that my kids were taken care of. I talked to the Director and the kids teachers so they knew what was happening, and truly felt my kids got the extra TLC they needed. The teachers, Director and all staff were accessible at all times, and ready and more than willing to help out wherever they could. My kids are now in second grade and to this day, they still speak fondly of COT, and say "hello" to the center each time we drive by.
COT is in a class by itself. It is filled with people who honestly care about children, and provides a nurturing, educational environment by combining the social and educational stepping stones for kids' future.
Think you COT for providing a wonderful environment for my family, I wish you continued success!"

"Brandon Butterfield started COT February 2006; just a little over 3 years of age. Brandon was fortunate to attend Children of Tomorrow from February 2006 to June 2009. We had been through two other centers where Brandon had no structure, very little curriculum, and had difficulty working with Brandon. We were fortunate enough to have Children of Tomorrow recommended to us. When we were looking for a Child Care Center, our number one priority was to find a place that would have very caring teachers and a curriculum that was very structured. Brandon is a very strong willed little boy but has such a special spirit and very kind hearted. With his personality, he needed not only structure but teachers that were trained on how to redirect his energy and also continue to build his self esteem and confidence. COT gave Brandon all that and more. When Brandon started at COT he was in Ms. Maria’s and Ms. Bambi’s class. Bob and I will forever be grateful to these two wonderful and caring women. Bob actually deemed Ms. Maria the Child Whisperer. As Brandon moved up to the pre-school and then pre-k classes, he continued to blossom and learn…he loves learning. As Brandon entered into Kindergarten, I knew he was ready, but didn’t realize how much. Brandon is definitely advanced in his class and I have never been so proud of him. He continues to tell me that he loves school and loves to learn. I ,without question, credit COT with his positive attitude toward learning and school. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Children of Tomorrow and am so grateful to the COT Staff and Aleta."
