Editorial review from Citysearch 9/7/2012

My son has been with Janna since he was 3 months old, and he is now 17 months old. She adores the children she cares for, and the children love being with her and being at her house. She makes it very clear what the rules are when the kids are at her house. She disciplines the children in a very loving way with methods that communicate to the children very clearly. She never raises her voice or spanks the kids. Her discipline is based on respect rather than on fear. Many parents of young children these days (myself included) struggle with negative patterns of behavior that we are unsure how to deal with. With all of her years of child care, Janna offers some much needed wisdom to those of us who are willing to listen. The method that Kali R. mentions about Janna putting her hand over the child's mouth to teach them not to cry seems strange at first. But it is a gentle method that teaches the babies not to scream to get what they want. She administers these kinds of methods in a quiet, calm voice. I have used many of her methods at home because they are so effective. My son is one of the happiest children I know, and he is better behaved than most children of his age. This is in large part due to his time with Ms. Janna and the advice she has given to me. My son and I both love Janna, and I am so happy that I found her. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/22/2012

Ms Janna is wonderful. Our daughter has been with her for 9 months and Janna has been so helpful. She is very no nonsense and there are very firm rules in her house. She believes that children should be respectful and obedient and happy, and all of her kids are. I highly recommend that you spend a day, or several with her and watch how wonderfully she interacts with her kids. My daughter is a red headed little spitfire with a major stubborn streak, however, with Janna's help, she takes two naps every day, she sleeps through the night, she is a joy to take out in public. I can take her to any restaurant and know she will be the most well behaved child there. @Kali, I have used the hand over the mouth method to circumvent temper tantrums. I'm not hurting her, she's mad about it, but it's communicating on a level that she can understand. Parenting is not easy and it's not for wimps. If you want to raise screaming brats, and aren't willing to actually 'parent', don't bring them to my house and don't bring them to Janna's. If you want children all your friends are envious of because they're so well behaved and take naps without complaint, please give her a call. You won't regret it. Janna's been doing this for almost 30 years, and had raised hundreds of babies. She knows what she's talking about. more

No Way! 3/15/2012

My baby was in Janna's care for a short time. Janna started sleeping her on her stomach at 10 weeks. At 4 months she encouraged discipline for crying by holding her hand over my baby’s mouth and asked me to continue at home. She had raw sores on her bottom from sitting in the exer-saucer for too long. My baby would have terrible screaming fits at 3 and 4 months old. She has NOT once had the same fits since we removed her from Janna’s care as well as no more sores. Janna is very opinionated and believes her way is the best way. I would not recommend her even for one day. more

Simply the Best! 12/31/2010

Speaking as the mother of a child who was in Ms. Janna's care from the time she was a few months old until first grade, I have never stopped being impressed by Ms. Janna and the way she conducts her family daycare. Besides providing a loving, safe environment for the children in her care she considers them and their families to be a part of her own extended family and she treats them this way. She is also a wealth of information about child raising issues and her actions in the community, based on her faith in God, have touched many lives in a positive way. I do not hesitate to unconditionally recommend Ms. Janna. more

Best Place for kids 3/22/2010

Our kids have been in Ms. Janna's care and we have been very satisfied for several years. The environment is safe, loving and stimulating. You will not find this quality of care in a chain daycare nor will your child be in a place with lower turnover. Ms. Janna is a member of our family and we are very thankful that we found her. Pros: Loving home environment that is very family oriented. Cons: None. more

Would not leave my child here at all! 12/18/2008

Very nice lady at first. Left the kids unnattended to take trash out as I pulled in. Leaves 3 month old baby alone in one room and keeps the other children seperate in another room. Which she tells me they are ""trained not to leave"" they go over the doorway into the kitchen and she repremands them. ""Disipline is from the word desiple"" she told me. She doesnt believe in structure and fun art and craft projects you would expect they do, she mostly keeps them in the one (small dark) room. I was appalled. The paint is chipping in this playroom , outlets not covered the toys are dated and obviously not wiped clean. During making lunch a baby 15 months old was crying and she was picked up ruffly for my taste put in a room with door shut and I was told this behavior was not alloud. She continued to make lunch for the babys and they were made to stay in the one room, if they scream she told me she shuts the door to the room and goes about lunch making . On my way out curious about the 3 month old in the other room, I saw him asleep up on the couch on pillow with a big blanket on him. not fully asleep. He could have easily fell off. I was shocked and appauled Please dont leave your small child here. Overly strickt , dirty, kids are bored and kept in one room or repremanded. Cons: everything more

Absolute best child care you could ask for! 9/7/2006

My child has been in the care of Ms. Janna for over a year and I am above and beyond happy with the care she is getting. I have never had any issues in the time that she has been there and my child loves playing with the other children in her care.\r \r Janna really is the best value in town. She has a safe, clean, warm and stimulating environment for my child to grow and explore in. I consider myself very luck to have found her and highly recommend her to everyone! more
