"When my twin sons started kindergarten, they were considerably ahead of their peers in reading and writing. I attribute this to the early education that they received while in preschool at Watch Me Grow! I was happy to see that there was a strong emphasis on education at WMG, and through the process my boys also developed very close relationships with several of the staff members, who they still ask to stop by and see today. They always laugh that if we stop by to see Ms. Sandy, she will probably cry because she showed so much love for them when they were there and she's always so proud of how they are achieving and advancing."

WMG goes above and beyond!
We have had the privilege of sending two children to Watch Me Grow for 2 years each. When it came time to send our "first-born" son to pre-school, we looked at quite a few different pre-schools and from the moment we walked in the doors at Watch Me Grow we knew that it was the right decision for our family and we were not disappointed. We found that the teachers at Watch Me Grow are not only excellent teachers but also kind, patient, and loved our kids. We also found that for the teachers and staff at Watch Me Grow their work is more than just a job, they always went above and beyond what they had to do and that love and commitment to teaching our kids made all the difference.
Creative, Caring Environment!
"This is a letter for all parents looking for a wonderful daycare for their children. Our daughter Emilie wne to WMG for many years when she was small. Though many years have passed, we still think of how grateful we are to have found WMG. We were new to town, looking for a daycare that we could trust with our precious daughter while we were at work. I looked at many daycares in Petoskey but when I walked into WMG and saw the colorful murals painted on the walls and saw the children looking so happy to be there and being so creative, I was pretty sure that is where I wanted Emilie to attend. After meeting with Ms. Tami and Ms. Jana and see how much the children loved them and they in turned loved the children tat they were in charge of, I knew that WMG was where we wanted Emilie to attend.
Emilie learned much at WMG, both academically and socially. She learned these life skills in a thoughtful, caring, and safe environment. Our daughter is now almost 14 years old and is a kind, caring, excellent student with a very creative streak all of which we attribute in part to the nurturing environment that she was given at Watch Me Grow.
