Unique and Valuable

We believe that children thrive in an environment which values their own uniqueness, while providing support and opportunities to grow emotionally, socially and creatively. By building on each child’s strengths, interests and curiosities, we guide each child to explore the world around them as well as develop new abilities and form close relationships.

Our Story

MJ'S BUDDING BRAINS DAYCARE adheres to a Faith based, Montessori approach of early childhood education. When we expose children to different environments and various learning experiences, we allow them to explore their self-awareness and gain a sense of the world around them. Once they leave our Day Care, they’re fully prepared for the next stage of their young lives.

"It has been over a year since we started attending daycare with Ms Millie and our son continues to thrive in Ms Millie’s care. Every day he wakes up excited to go see Ms Millie and learn and play with friends. He receives very nutritious meals and snacks and is happily eating many different fruits. He is also learning a lot every day! He is not yet 2 but can count to 60, say ABCs, recognize colors and shapes, spell his name, count in Spanish and more. We’re so thrilling with his progress and grateful to Ms Millie and the MJ Budding Brains Daycare family for the amazing care! We’re thankful to God for Ms Millie!"

As first time mom of a Covid baby trusting someone with my child has been a journey. Mrs.Millie is phenomenal with the kids. She’s thoughtful, caring, patient, and kind. She provides well balanced meals and snacks for my daughter. It’s been almost a month, and my daughter never wants to leave Mrs.Millie, that is a true testament to how she is being cared for in my opinion. I would recommend anyone to take their child here.

I love Ms. Milly's daycare. In 6 weeks she taught my 4 year over 20 sight words. In additon, he was well cared for. He ate healthy meals and learned to build positive relationships with his peers. 😊 Not to mention he would cry every afternoon because he was having so much fun, he did not want to come home 🏡.

Ms Millie’s daycare is a fun, nurturing and loving learning environment for our 8 month old son. So thankful we found her and we highly recommend Ms. Millie!

If I could give 20 stars I would ! I never thought I would feel as comfortable as I do sending my son to daycare but Ms.Millie is heaven sent. My son has made so many positive changes since attending her day care I couldn’t be more pleased.
10/10 recommend!
