Family Owned For Care You Can Trust

Parents require childcare the most when school is out and most places are closed. Rely on our comfortable, friendly haven for your child to receive tutoring help, make new friends, or play a board game in our “big kid” lounge.

Reading Is Emphasized To Keep Minds Sharp

Over the summer, kids can fall back as much as two months in their school learning. That’s why we read chapter books with them, discuss characters and plots, and encourage them to journal, keeping them on track and ready for the new school year.

My son loves his daycare! He is well cared for and loves all of the staff! The owner and staff are wonderful. All of my interactions are always pleasant when I drop off and pick up. I can tell how much they care about the children. It's much easier leaving my son knowing he's in such good hands. I highly recommended them.

This is one of the best daycares in the area. It is a family run business and they make you feel like you are a part of theirs. All five of my nieces and nephews at some point over the last 10 years have been with Mary and her staff. We even travelled with them when they moved locations. Top notch staff and never once had an issue with staff or an incident. Thankful to call them a friend.

My daughter has being going to Mary’s little lamb from fall of 2017. The staff and owners are great at what they do. My daughter loves them. It’s extremely hard to find good reliable people that would care and treat your kids like their own. I am truly bless to have them as my daughter daycare. I would recommend anyone to go to them.

The only daycare I have ever trusted my children with. We knew the minute we walked in to take a tour that this was where they were meant to be. The staff always goes above and beyond to care for the kids and I also know they are very safe there! So many activities to keep them actively learning. When my daughter went for her kindergarten screening the school was very impressed with what she had learned at Mary’s Little Lambs. So very blessed to have found a daycare that is just like family!

Both of my children have been enrolled in Mary’s Little Lambs daycare. My girls loved to go every single day. They are the best people I know and I never had to think twice about leaving my girls with them. They love my children almost as much as I do and I am thrilled that they are the extension of my parenting beliefs when I could not be there.

Sending my son to Mary's when I went back to work was the best decision I made as a new parent. My day was filled with working, cooking, cleaning, food shopping. Her day was spent teaching, loving and nurturing my child. Everything he learned before kindergarten was because of her dedication. I would recommend her 100 times over.

Ok so these are great people and family owned.. I have been with Mary's lil lambs since they were located in Tonawanda 2008. They take great care of all my kids the helped raise them in a sense.... My kids enjoy this day care very much and can't wait every morning to come back. They always kept their daycare very nice and clean decorative and make sure each kid is well-maintained … I wouldn't choose any other day care......

My daughter had went to MLL for 3 years, since she was 2 years old. I was so pleased with the caregivers and warm atmosphere. My daughter was always so happy when I picked her up at the end of the day. Never had to think twice about the care she was receiving. Warm loving staff, family oriented loved all the activities they not only had for the kids but the parents too would recommend any one to go here.

One of the best daycares in town. The things they teach the children and wonderful lunches they provide are outstanding. The teacher ‘s are very dedicated. I would recommend them to any parents thinking of putting their children into daycare or pre school.

Only thing I can say bad about this center is that they don't offer kindergarten to 12th grade. My daughter absolutely loved the staff and was so upset when she moved up to elementary school. She was the youngest (4)in her class and was well ahead of all the 5 and 6 year olds in kindergarten that her teacher had to find her more difficult lessons. The owners work with you ,not against you, and are very much family oriented.

I toiled while interviewing individuals and two other day care centers before meeting Mary at Mary's Little Lambs. My daughter was fascinated by her and I knew immediately that I felt comfortable with her. Mary and her staff were creative in their daily teachings and my daughter was learning songs and bringing home projects at 2 and 3 years old. Thank you for earning my trust and taking such good care of my little girl.

I sent my son to Mary's daycare years ago, and was always amazed at the new things he'd come home knowing. As a divorced working mom it was hard to get in all the study time. Mary was there to pick up my slack and I am proud to say that my son is now premed and applying to medical school. Thank you Mary we could not have done it without you!

Great family run daycare that truly cares about your child’s safety as well as educating your kids! Mary tought me how to read and write before I even entered pre school. From the trips to the park to making arts and crafts, I loved my time at Mary’s Little Lambs.

My daughter has been with this day care since she was 1 1/2 years old. And at 10 still attends and loves everyone. Staff is friendly and attentive. Wouldn’t trust anyone else to watch my daughter. My daughter has been treated like a family member and has learned so much through the years. I recommend Mary’s little lambs to my friends and family looking for a reliable daycare.

We have had a child attending Mary's Little Lambs for the past 6 years, we were introduced to this facility when they were in Tonawanda and drove from Orchard Park every day for the peace of mind and care our son received. Our daughter is now at Mary's Little Lambs 3-4 days a week and we are extremely pleased. The facility is always clean and the staff is very friendly and involved. Our daughter is always excited to go to school and has learned a lot, we always know she is well taken care of and loved.
