Millard Children's Academy is like an extended family for our two children and us. After 11 years, the staff is like family. There is ALWAYS a friendly face at the front desk to ensure safety and security. The same faces have been there for years—that speaks volumes. When we hear our daughter singing a new song she learned or telling us about how Miss Debbie calls her "sweetie cat," it makes our hearts melt. Millard Children's Academy is our home away from home and words cannot express our gratitude to them for taking care of our most prized possessions, our children.

I am very thankful to have such a great childcare facility that my girls love to attend. My three daughters have learned so much both socially and educationally. They have been taught to use computers, learn Spanish and interact with other children. The staff is very caring, comforting and patient. Several of the staff members have been there since my oldest daughter, now 10½ years old, started. The children are exposed to a variety of activities throughout the year. As the children get older there are fieldtrips. As a full-time working parent, I feel this is a great opportunity for the girls to get to "go out" with their friends as time during the week does not allow me to take them. As a picky parent, I could not ask for better care of my children.

Dear MCA Staff: It's hard to believe that our time here has ended. All of you have been such a huge part of our children's lives over the past 7½ years. You have provided them with a fantastic preschool education, a caring environment, and a fun place to spend their days. We are very grateful to you for that. The kids loved their time with you and have many great memories with the friends they've made. Thank you for everything you've done! Quote from our son: "MCA was a lot of fun for me. P.S. I miss MCA."

Our experience with Millard Children's Academy has been amazing. The staff cares for our children like they are their own. Our youngest son has several food allergies and Millard Children's Academy has worked closely with us to create a meal plan that suits his needs. When he has had any type of allergic reaction at school they have been quick to respond and address the issue. They are overly cautious with his allergies and work hard to keep him free of any allergic reactions. The staff is the most caring, loving and dedicated staff we have ever worked with. We wouldn't take our children anywhere else.

My husband and I are very happy to know that each day our two boys go to a place where they are loved.

I often think how fortunate I have been to have such a wonderful place for my children to spend their time while my husband and I have to be at work. Nothing can be more comforting for us, than to know our children are being well cared for by people who have the same values, hopes and dreams for our children as we do. The staff is extremely professional, courteous and always keeps us informed.

Both of our sons started Millard Children's Academy at 6 weeks of age. They were immediately welcomed with open arms and were made to feel a part of things right from the very beginning. Every day is a new adventure for them with all of the activities, crafts and educational programs.

We truly feel our sons could not be in a better or more supportive environment, and cannot speak more highly of Millard Children's Academy.

Millard Children's Academy has been a constant in our family since we moved to the area in 2000 and we couldn't be happier with the care both of our children have received. Our daughter began attending as a 3 year old. She had recently been diagnosed with diabetes and we were concerned about finding a center that would properly care for her. The staff at MCA was more than conscientious and comfortable in dealing with the special requirements of caring for a diabetic child. We were able to rest assured that not only was she engaged in a variety of activities throughout the day, but her health was closely monitored. Our son currently attends MCA and he's enjoyed the same attention even though he has no special health concerns. Based on our experiences for the last 11 years, the staff at MCA does a wonderful job of providing structured and safe programs for all children. With a full-time staff that has remained largely intact since 2000, an added bonus is that when our daughter occasionally picks up our son, the staff still knows her and inquires about how she is doing. Further proof that the children are not merely numbers, but individuals who are cared for and remembered well past the time they are there.

When it is necessary to rely on someone to care for your child(ren), Millard Children's Academy is who you should trust. MCA took care of our two sons for nearly a decade from 2000 to 2008. We left MCA for a short time in 2003 when we moved into a new home outside the Millard area. After an agonizing and uncomfortable few months with a day care provider closer to our home, we found ourselves calling MCA and pleading with them to take our youngest son back into their program. We were pleased with their superior level of care for our boys from the early infant years, through the preschool years, and even as "schoolers". MCA offers a safe, structured environment that is conducive to learning and we could always rely on them to be open during bad weather. MCA has a wonderful staff that works hard to establish a rapport and provides open communication at all times with the parents and the children they care for. You will not find a better daycare provider who genuinely cares about your child(ren) and we personally have developed friendships we will cherish forever.

Millard Children's Academy has been a very important part of mine and my children's lives since October 20, 2003. They have an outstanding program and the most respected owners and employees I have ever witnessed at other preschools and daycare facilities in Omaha. My oldest son is now 11 years old and he still wants to come back and visit his teachers. My 4 year old daughter has been there since she was 3 months old and will continue until she cannot anymore. We consider them as much a part of our family as grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

When my son attended his class's graduation from daycare to elementary school, not only were the parents teary-eyed, so was the daycare director and owners. Millard Children's Academy has by far exceeded my expectations as a preschool and daycare facility. When my children have their own children I'm positive there won't be a decision to have to make, they will choose Millard Children's Academy.

Thank you for the wonderful memories and the many more to come!

- Sincerely, Sheryl Loth

Both of my children started attending Millard Children's Academy when they were 15 months old (my daughter is now almost five and my son is three). They have become very outgoing and have made several friends. The teachers are amazing and continually impress myself and my husband with all they continue to teach our children. The staff is incredibly supportive of all the children attending and is exceptional in keeping us updated on how they are doing. Terri, Mike, Jennifer, Jenni, and Diane at the front desk as well as many of the staff have been very helpful whenever I've asked for advice and have made me feel like I'm leaving my children with family rather than daycare.

With 3 children we have had a long-term relationship with MCA. Their staff has provided a supportive and caring environment, while also giving lots of comfort and love to our children. Our last child, who is now 6, started with MCA as a 3 month old infant. She still drops in for care from time to time when her elementary school is closed. MCA has always been so reliable, flexible, and very supportive through the years, especially their terrific management and front desk staff. They are extremely committed to providing a safe and caring environment where children can grow, learn, and play. I don't know what we would have done without MCA. We are so thankful and glad that we discovered them years ago.

Millard Children's Academy is a wonderful daycare and preschool! Our children, now 8 and 11, were under their care from birth until Kindergarten age. Most of the staff has been there for those years and more. The teachers and care givers REALLY care about the kids. Whenever we dropped our kids off or picked them up, the front desk (staff) knew who we were and the staff and teachers could all tell us what kind of day our kids had. The staff would always call and let me know if there had been a problem.

We still stop by to say "hi" and check in with the staff. We bring the kids by, as the staff enjoys seeing them grow and mature, and the kids enjoy seeing everyone, too.

We never worried about our kids when they attended MCA. We knew they were well cared for and cared about. We also knew they were having fun learning and having a great time making friends. Even though the kids and their friends moved to different schools, we still keep in touch!
