A Community Partnership For High-Quality & Accessible Care
Our partnership with CAO (Community Action Organization of WNY), helps your child’s classroom elevate their learning supplies, curriculum, and more. Dedicated to creating a learning environment that nurtures your child’s growth and development in all areas, age-appropriate literacy, language, numeracy, and social activities guide them through their early academic success.
From Our Family To Yours, We’re In This Together
With three generations under one roof, the center’s founding family understands the importance of community and treats your toddler like their own. Together, the staff and leadership team support each other in sharing the same mission to give your child the best start possible.
High-Quality Early Learning Jumpstarts School Success
Your child’s curriculum addresses child development from every angle. From 123s and ABCs, to social-emotional learning, and physical play, your toddler connects the dots between basic concepts to gain a deeper, greater understanding of abstract thinking as they grow.
Tons Of Art Supplies Keep Your Child Creating
Classrooms are stocked and ready to offer your child the tools they need to paint, mold, and draw works of art – at no extra cost to parents–so you have one less item to budget into your expenses, and your child experiences the joy that creativity brings.
Spanish And Baby Signing Expand Self-Expression
Exposure to a second language benefits self-regulation, memory, and vocabulary. Baby signing provides children with another method of communication so they can express what they need independently, even when they may not be able to find the right words on their own.
Supporting Early Interventions To Bridge Any Learning Gaps
Teachers assess your child’s skillset to determine where they are developmentally, and address any special needs they may have. Early learning evaluations provides them with the opportunity to reach their full potential, and get the support they need along the way.
Restricted Access And Dedicated Staff Promise Safety
Extensive safety features and attentive staff ensure your child is learning in a secure haven while under our care. Restricted entryways, security cameras, and enclosed playgrounds give you the peace of mind of knowing that safety is among our top priorities.
Complimentary Meals So Your Toddler Can Focus On Fun!
Your child is served nutritious, hot meals daily, making the day a little smoother for you by allowing you to save on morning prep time. A complimentary meal program energizes your toddler so they can focus on play, storytime, making friends, and having fun!
Outdoor Play Is Another Marvelous Way To Learn
Getting outside into the fresh air is a part of each day. Your child exercises growing muscles on play structures, refines social-emotional skills as they nurture friendships, and learns how to work with their peers to throw and catch a ball, or make a parachute ripple.
A Deep Clean Maintains Your Child's Good Health
Teachers take care to wipe down and disinfect toys, tools, and equipment daily, while professional cleaners sanitize our campus after hours to keep us, you, and your child away from contagious flu and cold-causing germs.

Catherine Chojnacki"Highly recommended"
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.
Christina Boyer"Top notch staff"
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.
Tiffany Jackson"My daughter loves them"
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.
Nathan Adams"So very blessed to have found a daycare that is just like family!"
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!
Gena Sciolino"They love my children almost as much as I do"
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.
Mary Beth White"Very foster and adoption friendly."
My kids were there for years and loved it. They were very supportive and had a great keep trying attitude with special needs little ones. Very foster and adoption friendly.
Sherrie Bowerman"I would recommend her 100 times over"
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.
Brooke Smith"My children were loved and taken care"
Both of my children attended until we moved and they were loved and taken care of by the staff like they were their own.
Amber Boyer"They always kept their daycare very nice and clean"
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......
Michele Larson"Warm loving staff, family oriented loved all the activities"
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.
Susan Gregory"One of the best daycares in town"
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.
Sherry Nickens"My daughter absolutely loved the staff"
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.
F&S Norr"Thank you for earning my trust"
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.
Lisa Marlin"They have always provided great care"
Both of my children have attended Mary's Little Lamb Daycare. They have always provided great care and the kids really enjoyed their time there. I recommend this daycare and the extended hours are great for shift workers!
Margherita Fanti" I am proud to say that my son is now premed"
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!
Aaron Fanti"Great family run daycare"
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.
Zoey Zuckerman"Would 100% recommend"
I used to go there when I was young, The staff were amazing and took care of all of the kids. Has many fun and intresting events. Very safe and the Adults working there are again wonderful. Old building or new they do the same . Would 100% recommend if your new or scared to put your child in a daycare 😘😊
Melissa Schlueter"Wouldn’t trust anyone else to watch my daughter"
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.
Pamela Macakanja"Our daughter is always excited to go to school"
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.
