We have been sending our daughter to Little Gems for the past 6 months and I cannot say enough wonderful things. My partner and I are both working parents and, like most, felt that tinge of guilt of having to leave our daughter with "strangers". From the moment we stepped inside Ken and Cutt's lovely space, we felt at ease. Six months later, our daughter still shrieks with delight at drop-off every morning and is relaxed and happy and full (from all the healthy and wonderful food she gets during the day!) every afternoon. I recommend this small, friendly, happy, positive, caring place for any family looking for a daycare for their child. 

We weren't keen on having to put our daughter into daycare at only 5 weeks old, but it was a necessity. Fortunately, we found Cutt and Ken! Ultimately, we had zero worries/stress dropping off our young daughter there, and that was a huge relief!!! Cutt has basically raised our daughter from a very young age until almost two years old. We are truly thankful we found her and trust her and her family 100%. She takes great care of all the kids and feeds them very well! Hard to ask for more. If you can get a spot here, we highly recommend it. Cutt is like a second mother to our daughter and we are sad we have to part ways.

My daughter has been attending Little Gems for the past couple of months and our daughter absolutely loves it here. Cutt and Ken provide exceptional care and they are always loving and warm. When I drop off my daughter in the morning, I know my daughter is left in trusting hands. They made the transition easy and my daughter adjusted quickly. Little Gems is more than just a daycare, they treat my daughter like family. I’m so thankful to have met Cutt and Ken and to have them in my daughter’s life.
