Highly recommended child care center in Pataskala Ohio!

My three girls transitioned from an in-home center to Milestones and it has been a wonderful experience. Everyday we see the continual growth and progression in our girls, we see how they've been very hands on with their development. The staff is amazing, we couldn't ask for a better center!

Great daycare in Pataskala Ohio!

My son goes to this daycare and my heart feels so happy when I drop him off at 8:04. His teachers are in there skipping and singing along with the children. He loves going to “school” and usually reaches for his teacher before even telling me goodbye and when I pick him up he doesn’t even wanna leave. He comes home with tons of crafts every day and his learning has improved so much! He comes home singing nursery rhymes that even I don’t know the words to!! The building seems to be really secure, I have never personally experienced the door being open, when I arrive I normally have to ring the door bell to get in. I am always greeted by an ecstatic staff member. You know everyone there loves not only the kids but also their job. I am loving the new improvements they are making such as the new floors that make the building feel so home like and the new fence surrounding the outside play grounds.

My children love this daycare center in Pataskala!

My children have been going to Milestones for 2 1/2 years now and I absolutely love it here. I feel like my children are being dropped off with family, in a safe environment. When I had to look for a daycare in my area I was unsure if I was making the right decision in putting my kids in daycare. Once I became part of the Milestones family it was the best decision for my kids, Milestones has a great atmosphere, and amazing teachers that treat my children with love and care. Milestones started the foundation for my children to be equipped and prepared for school. They have great curriculum that is challenging, and keeps their minds stimulated. The teachers are sent to regular trainings for their continued education that equips them with the tools to properly teach the children. I strongly suggest that you bring your children to Milestones Learning Center to get the kind of education they deserve.

Thank you Milestones for a great year in child care!

My two boys have been attending Milestones for almost three years now. I am very happy with the care they receive there. Milestones is a clean daycare with a nice, large outdoor play area. Due to our recent move to Pickerington, this is the second daycare that the boys have attended. There are several things that set Milestones apart from the other daycare. Milestones provides great field trips for the kids through the summer – busing them to places like the Zoo, Lazer Kraze, and local parks. They demonstrate flexibility through their willingness to put my boys on and get them off of a bus to part-day public preschool where my older son received individualized education plan (IEP) support. Other daycares we toured were unwilling to do this because it makes it difficult to maintain teacher-student ratios. Many of the teachers have been working at Milestones for a long time and built great relationships with the boys; our previous daycare had a lot of staff turnover. Finally, I feel that the staff at Milestones genuinely care for my children; examples of this are seen at the annual Milestones family Halloween night and the “graduation” ceremony they hold for children about to begin daycare.

My kids love this child care center!

My two kids attend Milestones and it has been a wonderful experience! I was worried that my youngest son would have a difficult time adjusting to daycare, but it only took a few days for him to become comfortable and happy with Milestones. I feel that my children are happy and safe when I drop them off, and I can see firsthand that they are learning from the teachers, as well as improving their social skills. All together Milestones has been a great experience for our family!

First time mother! Glad I made the choice of this daycare!

Being a first time Mother I have discovered that daycare's are really trial and error. The first daycare I chose, I was unhappy with after 6 months of my infant going there. I made the change to Milestones, April of 2016. It was the best decision I could have made for my daughter. She is thriving in the toddler class. She comes home daily with knowledge of new words, songs, developmental and socialization skills. The teachers implement core values and ethics to children of all age groups. The communication between the Director and myself is impressive. They truly strive to make transitions as easy as possible for not only the parents, but most importantly, the children. I highly recommend Milestones Learning Center to all.
