Helen Sumner Daycare is a wonderful place to send your children for meticulous care and an incomparable learning foundation. My son went to this center under the lead teacher Mrs. Damiana. I never worried about his well being while he was there. He was reading by the time he was 3, and when he went to kindergarten, he had already covered the kindergarten curriculum with Mrs. Damiana the previous year. Needless to say, my son was ahead of the game. His handwriting was impeccable, he was reading at a 4th grade level in kindergarten, and had a high level of pride in his work that was instilled in him. Mrs. Damiana continues to be a part of our family, and I am truly grateful for the foundation she laid. I have also met Mrs. Sumner on a few occassions, and parents of children under her direct care. I have nothing but respect for her. I have only heard rave reviews about Mrs. Sumner and the care and education she provides for the children in her care. She is the reason we even chose to send our son to the in home center on Megan Lane, and were not at all ever let down.
My children attended Helen's daycare at the greenbelt location from 3 months until the age of 5. I without a doubt recommend this establishment to anyone who is looking for a family oriented daycare. They are caring,nurturing and very supportive. Ms Damiana still attends all of my kids birthday parties and they still have a very close relationship with her. They are now 8 and 6 years old. They still go to see her every summer break. The education foundation received at the institution is by far superior to what is expected from a daycare. My kids excel in school currently because of the foundation they received at Helen's daycare.
Thought I could trust this woman until I found out she hit my child with a whip in her face, even after I told her I had to remove my child from an abusive childcare.
