My daughter started at Tiny Tykes shortly after turning 1 year old and my son started around 18 months old. The moment our kiddos started, their language exploded. The amount of education that is extended to the kids is so amazing. They come home every day talking about random knowledge about so many things the have learned at school. They learn coping skills and how to interact with peers. They have a healthy level of discipline and offer "hoot hoot hooray" awards to one child every day for their good behavior/being a helper/doing something kind for another classmate. At 3 years old they begin the preschool program, focusing on kindergarten preparation.
They focus on themes, letters, numbers, and crafts. They have an amazing play area and also do nature walks around the property.John has been such an amazing male influence to the kids and works with them on how to cope with their feelings, while making the school day fun and exciting. Jaden and Kelsey have also been so amazing, creating a fun, nurturing, and structured environment that the kids feel safe in, as we as excited to go to school every day. I can't speak enough about this school!
We absolutely love Tiny Tykes! John, Jen and their team immediately started treating our son like family. Our son is hard of hearing and John and Jen quickly started looking up signs and even found a group to come to teach all the other kids more sign language. The whole team truly goes above and beyond for all their kids. We are so happy we found a place our son is excited about. In just 3 months we have seen so much growth socially and intellectually for our son.
It is always a big decision when you are taking your child to daycare and when we found out there was an opening at Tiny Tykes, we knew it was the right place, so we moved daycares! John and Jen and the team always are so caring and supportive to our child. They have literally become like 2nd parents to our child, and it feels like they love him like their own. Appreciate them so much!
Like most parents, we were expecting to find a daycare where our daughter would be happy and safe. No doubt, we found that with the owners of Tiny Tykes, John and Jen Jaquish. Finding care providers that treat your children as you would is a rare and beautiful find. What we didn’t expect was how much our child would thrive in the learning environment they’ve created for these children. Our daughter’s previous daycare segmented children by age, which meant at nearly two years old she spent her days with children who spoke minimally or not at all. We were concerned that she did not speak much since our previous children by that time did and we are all big talkers.
We have currently been with Tiny Tykes less than a year and she has gone from non-verbal/unintelligible to carrying on conversations with adults, recognizing her letters, spelling her name, etc. There are not enough words we could use to express the blessing Tiny Tykes has been to our life and our daughters. She is forever changed because of the multi-age environment Tiny Tykes has that mixes all ages into play, structure, and learning!
Tiny Tykes child care and preschool provides the absolute best environment for child development. Both my son and daughter have had the pleasure of going here, and the staff could not be more professional and friendly. Highly recommend to anyone looking for quality daycare and pre-school they can trust!
Top Quality! That's what you will find at Tiny Tykes in Firestone. John, Jen and their team brings top notch care and learning opportunities to the children in their center. They undoubtedly love the children and families they serve. I teach fitness classes in their center and I am always greeted by happy, smiling, energetic, welcoming children who are ready to learn about happy, healthy bodies and hearts. The environment of the center is full of teaching opportunities, from manners, to trying hard, to respect, to academics, to playground time etc. all while being nurtured and loved. That is such a wonderful thing for parents who are looking for a healthy, safe, environment for their child. Plus the center itself is beautiful - clean, inviting, bright, lots of room and a very kid friendly atmosphere. John and Jen have given this area a very high quality center.

When I visited Tiny Tikes I have to say I was a little speechless. I have visited many home childcare providers and I have never seen one go so much above and beyond to provide a quality experience for children, and I have been in the field for close to 25 years. I can genuinely say that I can sense the sincere passion in John, and his staff who provide such great care to the children in the program. John has worked hard on his space and it shows from the minute you walk thru the door.

My wife and I and our 3 daughters love Tiny Tykes! Before it officially opened, we were able to "try out" the facilities and spend time with the staff and our girls LOVED being there! As parents of small children, it's really important to us to know the people and place where we're leaving them is safe, trustworthy and fun. They nail all three of these things very well. My girls feel just as comfortable there as they do at home, which is very important! The owners, John and Jen, have created a comfortable, family-feel to their business. We find them to be great-hearted, children-loving people! Their many years of child-care experience, coupled with parenting their own little girl have blessed them with an awesome, natural ability for creating a healthy, trustworthy place for kids. I would DEFINITELY suggest to our friends, family and anyone that your kids go here! I guarantee you won't regret it!
My husband and I LOVE this place! We love all the teachers and we're so blessed we found this place. Ever since she has started she has learned so much and talks more than ever and now says "may I be excuse" when asking to leave the dinner table!! I come home from work and I'm in awe of things she is learning. Love you guys at Tiny Tykes!
My husband and I feel very fortunate to have found Tiny Tykes Daycare. Finding a daycare / preschool for your child is not an easy decision. It is so difficult to finding a facility that will provide the level of love and care your child deserves while creating a positive leaning environment. Our daughter Addlynn absolutely adores the staff at Tiny Tykes and has learned so much in her 8 month tenure. We are truly grateful to have found such a wonderful daycare provider for our daughter.
Tiny Tykes is by far the best daycare center my husband and I interviewed, and we talked to a lot! We knew after one tour of the facility that our baby girl would be well taken care of here. Mr John and the whole Tiny Tykes staff are very friendly, caring and knowledgeable. As a new mom I wanted to make sure my infant got lots of interaction with the staff and I was surprised at how many new things my baby began to do after only a short while of being here. I am so thankful for Tiny Tykes because I know every time I leave my daughter at Tiny Tykes I don't have to worry, she is in good hands.
I truly can't say enough good things about Tiny Tykes Daycare. My husband and I feel so fortunate to have found Tiny Tykes for our daughter, Katy. Mr. John and his staff made her feel comfortable and loved from day one. When Katy began attending Tiny Tykes she was very shy, but with the caring and nurturing environment she quickly came out of her shell and I was amazed at the transformation I saw in her personality not only at daycare, but at home as well. We have watched our daughter blossom and learn under their excellent care, and I can't express how grateful we are at the positive changes we've seen in her personality. Where Katy used to cry and not want to go to school, she's now excited to learn and loves going to see everyone at Tiny Tykes. If you choose Tiny Tykes for your child care, I'm positive you won't regret your decision!
My husband and I were looking for a daycare center for our son who was turning 2. I was nervous to put him in daycare to begin with, but we thought it would be good for him to have interaction with other kids, and to give him something to do a few days a week. After a few disappointing daycare tours, we found Tiny Tykes. We toured Tiny Tykes on our sons 2nd birthday, and Mr. John had a birthday present waiting for him when we arrived! We were immediately impressed at the home feel of the daycare, and liked that there was no age separation with the kids. John and Jen have created an amazing family feel to this daycare and Ms. Shelly and Ms. Charlotte are wonderful with the kids, too. You can tell that your child has been treated with love all day when you pick them up. Our son has learned a lot at Tiny Tykes, we are always impressed with the activities they do and the things he has learned each day. He often doesn't want to leave and he talks about being able to go to daycare the next day with excitement! We couldn't be happier that he loves Tiny Tykes so much. We feel like we are taking him to family's house when we drop him off each morning.
