What Parents Are Saying . . .

As a former elementary school teacher, I knew exactly what I was looking for in a nursery school for my children.  When my husband and I started looking for schools for Jakob, we contacted seven schools in the Capital District.  We made appointments to visit all of them.  Little Tots was our fourth appointment, and when we got home from our initial visit, we called and cancelled the rest of our appointments.  We didn’t need to see any more.


I graduated from Little Tot in 1979. I still have memories of riding around in circles on the little tricycles in the play yard, sitting in the yellow plastic "cubbie" reading books with my best friend, and waiting for the snack fairy to tap my head with his or her magic star wand.

Fast forward 30 years, my boys, Jake and Cameron, have each taken their turns on those tricycles, have read in the yellow cubbie, and have excitedly shared with me when they got to be snack fairy.

While traditions continue at Little Tot, things certainly have not remained the same! In the four years that I have been a parent to Little Tot students, the school has undergone quite a transformation. Not only in the building itself, but in the new toys, an ever changing and adapting curriculum, a phenomenal teaching assistant, music and dance classes, and so much more!!!

Mrs. Donmez has done a fabulous job balancing tradition with developmentally appropriate activities and learning opportunities. She has a true gift in her ability to create and implement a program that works for EVERY child at Little Tot. From the shyest special needs child to the most outgoing character (yes, I am describing my two boys!), Mrs. D knows how to adapt to make it work for them all!!!

I am so thrilled to have Little Tot as place we can all call our own, for it has given all of us a great start and fabulous memories. I can't wait to sign Kyle in 2011!!!

Thank you for all you have done for my children and our family. You are the BEST!
