We could not be happier with the education, care and love our children received at LCCC. The teachers cared for our children as if they were their own; the kids always felt safe and loved. Although our kids have graduated from the center, we still feel part of the LCCC family. They always want to visit Miss Holle, Miss Judy and the rest of the teachers. We are forever grateful for the experience and count ourselves lucky to have found Lakewood Child Care Center.

— Lauren, Former LCCC Parent
