Just Like Family more than a "Daycare"

September 2019

Developing Minds Child Center . Where should I start? After several visits to other centers or daycare in the area this was by far the best decision I could have made with the care of my son. My son started at developing minds at 7 months old and needless to say he is now 5 years old and still attending. With the young age of 7 months it’s hard to leave your little one. Ms. Tia Jones and her awesome team have cared for my son as if he was their own every member I’ve encountered from his transition from infant toddler and now pre k have been very attentive to my needs and the wellbeing of my son I have developed bonds and friendships with the staff that I’m forever grateful for Read More


“I have always had pride in myself and my staff. Because of this, I will only deliver EXCELLENCE  to all of my children.  I truly feel that the staff and children at the center are an extension of my own loving family and I’ll continue to do all I can to help every child at Developing Minds continue to “reach for the stars!” LaTia Smith Middleton, CEO/Administrative Director”

I am writing this letter in regards to Ms. Belinda. Too many times, parents write letters or meet with you when there is something negative to discuss about a teacher. I wanted to take the time to write a letter for the opposite reason. I am writing to express how grateful I am to have Ms. Belinda as Jazmyn's teacher. Since being in Ms. Belinda's class I have seen a huge growth in Jazmyn's learning  Read More

"thank you for all you have done in our lives"

August 2023


As you know Khalani Kamara has graduated from preschool and will be attending Kindergarten this upcoming school year. I wanted to take the time out to say thank you for all you have done in our lives. She has learned so much from her teachers and has really matured into a little young lady. I see the growth from when she first started at your facility. We will take everything that she has learned and apply it throughout her school year. I will stop pass the facility to pick up her belongings. Again thank you for the kind words shared and for going the extra mile to be a blessing in our lives.


With Love,


"You are part of his success"

August 2023


You're very welcome. Thank you so much for your care. My family and I really had a nice time with your center and appreciate your effort. I recommend you to everyone that I know. My son was there since 9 month old, it was amazing to see how all the teacher call him with so much love. Because of the teacher, my son know more than expected. I pray that God continue to bless you and May he realize all your dream. Even my next child will be with you by God grace. A big thanks to everyone especially Ms. Kim, Ms. Kabrea, and Ms. Jackie who was really present for me. I will surely follow up with his progress. You are part of his success. God bless!

"Extremely Satisfied"

February 2016

When I receive poor service, I notify management, accordingly. To the contrary, when I receive excellent service, I believe giving people their "flowers" while they are living and can enjoy them! Such as the case with Ms. Aretha Taylor Read More

I am writing this letter to give some recognition to the wonderful women of Infant I that have taken care of Jordyn for the last few months. Over the last 6-7 months while Jordyn was with them, she really thrived! She is a very happy baby and certainly learning so much because of them.  


"We highly recommend" 

May 2023


My wife and I have been clients of Developing Minds since 2016. We actually found our way to Developing Minds through a referral from other families we know and trust, which was huge for us, because at the time we were on a search of a daycare that would help us steward over our first born child while my wife and I worked during the day. Since 2016 we have had both of our daughters at Developing Minds, and we could not have been happier. From the kid’s time as newborns through school age, Developing Minds provided a consistent environment of safety, trust, and professionalism. Our girls not only had fun, but they grew intellectually and socially as well. Developing Minds exceeded every expectation we had and will always serve as the standard for high quality child care in our minds. We highly recommend Developing Minds as the top tier child care provider of choice.
