"My daughter is quiet and takes time to adjust, when she started they handled her needs with care and helped her blossom to feeling comfortable and making lots of friends. I cannot wait for our son to attend Jellybean so he can have the fantastic experience our daughter has had, and cannot wait to see how they help him blossom in his own way."
"Both of our kids have attended. Fantastic and caring staff, great facilities, they've exceeded our expectations from the very beginning. We could not have picked a better daycare and preschool to send our kids."
"If I could give more than 5 stars I would. We are thrilled to be a part of the Jellybean family. They came highly recommended to us and we couldn't be happier to have our son spend his days with them. It's a great mix of learning, nurturing, creativity and fun. They work with the kids and their own individual needs which other centers do not. We truly consider the teachers an extension of our family and can't imagine not having them in our lives."
"When my kids were little, they went to Jellybean Daycare and Preschool for more than 5 years. And even though my kids are now school aged and haven't gone there in about 5 years, we still refer to them as "family." Ms. Jenn and Juju were like second moms who truly loved my kids like they were their own. As a working mom, there is no greater guilt than having to leave your kids to go to work but there is no place else in the world I would have rather had them be than Jellybean. We love you guys and are grateful beyond words!!"
"We loved Jellybean from our initial tour. It had a very warm, welcoming ‘home like’ feeling instead of just a preschool/daycare. We appreciate the theory of play based learning and the amount of varied activities offered daily is impressive. Our oldest son is more sensitive and as a result had a rough transition to Jellybean. The level of compassion and patience during this transition was incredible. He is of course thriving now, loves Jellybean and has made some great friends. This is more than a job to these teachers and caregivers, they genuinely love these little ones and I couldn’t feel more comfortable leaving my children in their extremely capable and loving hands. As a bonus, at work I get a picture of my boys smiling and having fun playing or doing some activity, completely brightens my day!"
"My girls (now ages 5 and 7) attended Jellybean for two years. We absolutely loved their time there! The staff is fantastic; always going above and beyond for the children! We learned of Jellybean through a referral from a friend. I honestly thought she was exaggerating when she talked about how great Jellybean is – but she wasn't – and I’m so glad that my girls got to experience preschool there!
Jellybean always took such great care of my kiddos; balancing safety and health with education and fun every day. One of our favorite things was the daily journals that they wrote in, telling us about something special that my girls did that day. We even got to keep the journals when the girls graduated preschool from Jellybean. It was such a nice glimpse into their day and a wonderful keepsake to remember some of their milestones.
"Jellybean Daycare has many great qualities including a developmentally appropriate curriculum, a focus on families, a special gift for nurturing the social/emotional development as well as a wonderful environment. Yet my favorite thing about Jellybean Daycare is the love and support they gave my daughter each day.... they added so much joy to her life and even at 11, she still identifies Jenn & Julie and many of the other staff as a part of her family. We are Jellybeans for life! :)"
"This place is AMAZING!! Jellybean came highly recommended to our family and our daughter absolutely loves going! Everyday when we pick her up, she asks if she can come back tomorrow. The teachers are great, the art projects and activities are creative and fun and the center is beautiful. What a great place. Thank you Jellybean for taking such great care of our little girl!"
"Our sons have both attended for a combined 4 years. They are excited to come to “school” and always have a great time. On those mornings when they’re having a tough time, there are always loving arms and hugs to help them settle in. All of the teachers are truly invested in the kids, and it shows. There is consistency in the staff, which speaks to the sense of commitment and community.
It’s been incredible to see our boys blossom socially, emotionally and intellectually - all while having FUN.
The facilities are spotless (even the cabinet doors in the kitchen get scrubbed) which keeps illnesses to a minimum. They are also constantly improving the spaces with new equipment, toys, curriculum changes, and rearranging spaces so they are fresh and exciting.
Thanks to Jellybean - the kids also had an excellent head start in Kindergarten. They could write their names, letters, read, identify shapes and colors, etc. They also learned self discipline, respect for themselves and others, and good self care (washing hands, brushing teeth, getting dressed.)
Everyone here clearly shares a passion for children. I feel like I’m leaving my child with a tribe of loving “alternate mamas” when I drop him off. We feel like part of a family, and look forward to sending our youngest daughter once she’s old enough!
"My son is our first and only and everything to us. We had a nanny and choosing a pre-school was hard for me. We toured every day care and preschool in Washtenaw County and I only felt comfortable with one Jellybean. I have never once regretted the choice to send our son there. Julie, Jenn, Kiki, Rachel, Ozzy, Tish, and the rest of the wonderful girls there are awesome!!! My son has learned so much and the care provided has been excellent! I would recommend Jellybean 100% wholeheartedly! My son starts kindergarten in the fall and it will be sad for our family to leave our family there. Thank you Jellybean for all you have taught our son and done for our family!!!!"
"When I walked into Jellybean Daycare I just knew this was the one.... It's the perfect mix of a family home daycare and group center, and gives us the best of both worlds. Julie and Jenn and all of the staff and teachers are friendly, knowledgeable, and absolutely terrific with the kids. I had been looking for a daycare in Saline for my 4 month old son, and ended up settling for something else in the area. It wasn't a great fit, and so I was thrilled when I stumbled upon the Jellybean fb page back in January. Such a warm and loving environment, we immediately felt welcomed and part of a family. Even my older son loves coming to pick up his baby brother at the end of the day! I can't say enough about what a great experience its been. If you are looking for a daycare in Saline, try Jellybean!"
"We started my daughter at Jellybean about 10 months ago, just a few months after she turned three. We were part time and now full time.
I am so pleased with the attention, time, and approach Jellybean has all around. I love the openness and the collaboration the teachers have.
Their communication is excellent, keeping us informed of big matters but also day to day matters. They care about each child and their growth and progress. They recognize the significance of playing, kids making choices, having a voice, and embrace learning throughout. I am thrilled to be at such a place that makes my daughter feel special and accepted. I can't thank them enough. It has blown me away. As a first time mom finding my way but also as an elementary teacher, this place is outstanding. It really is a family and they are the ones who have created this environment where kids can be kids yet thrive in their learning."
