Akintoye’s Parent

Our experience was great and it was very hard leaving Good Child. Our son loved his teachers and he was able to easily adjust. He felt very welcome and at home. The staff were very friendly and always available to help. Will most definitely recommend to friends and family!

Mother of 2 in Milford, CT

After visiting ALL other child care facilities in our hometown of Milford, Good Child provided the best environment with caring staff & state of the art security. I knew when I went to work my kids were safe and in good hands. When I was a brand new Mother, the staff at Good Child helped me adjust to my new role in life, instilling confidence in me and helped me understand my child’s development. As with any relationship, when I had concerns or questions, I would feel welcome to talk it over with Teachers and Staff. They are always willing to listen and help resolve concerns. If we have a third child, no doubt would we enroll them in Good Child again.
