I had been associated with small steps day care from 1996 to 2011. Over this period of 15 years my daughters attended from birth through fifth grade.

One of the most anxiety producing things you can do in life is drop off your new born child into the care of a total stranger. From day one, Mrs. Nancy Levens, the owner and director of the day care set me at ease. It was very apparent to me that she and her staff were very professional, caring, and strict in regards to the proper rules and regulations of running a well managed children’s day care.

Over the years my daughters learned a lot that supplemented what they were learning in school. They also had a lot of fun and made good friends, especially during the summer sessions. Years after attending Small Steps, my daughters would comment, “we miss going there,” as we would pass by on the way to Dallastown High School. On one frightening occasion, my older daughter very early on, developed an unknown food allergy that produced a potentially serious reaction. Mrs. Levens handled it very professionally and in a manner like it was her own daughter. I’ll never forget and always be grateful for how this was handled and knew my kids were in the right place.With all of the positive experiences we had with Small Steps Day Care, I recommend this day care without any reservations.
