"I’ve had a couple personal things go on in my life.!! That we needed a reliable, caring, understanding daycare. We have a child with Autism my father passed away I’m from Missouri so it’s a long haul plus it was mid school.! So we needed help. With no family here. I was looking and I found the most genuine loving person “The Owner” Anna.!! She stopped what she was doing and came to the center so dad and I could tour the place and ask loads of questions.!! At that time our son was considered non verbal.!! Her center is top notch clean and full of loving staff. Just by her taking the time and being there for us spoke loud volumes.!!! Fast forward to the now.!! Now we have a daughter she is a little over two. During the past 6 months we watched Anna from afar keep the loft open for children during the months of scary Covid 19. She and her staff was rocking it with much pride. Well time came about 2 months ago for our daughter to get loving care. My husband is super picky but the first name that came out of his mouth was Anna and the learning loft.!! We can’t be more happy with this decision. Our daughter is so loved and cared for in such a clean nurturing environment.!!! We are ~Blessed~ we found Anna and her loving ways. She’ll always hold a special place in our hearts."
