Gibbs Family Day Care promotes growth and development in a loving and caring environment. We have been blessed to be part of such a wonderful place and highly recommend Ms. Jo and staff.

Jamie P.

I am so happy that friends recommended Gibbs Family Day Care to me because they truly are like family and I feel so comfortable leaving when I drop my son off. Every day he surprises me with something new he has learned.

Beth and Mike

Gibbs Family Day Care has provided our daughter with the foundational skills that will prepare her for her lifelong learning journey. In addition, the love and care she receives is comforting to us, as parents, when our daughter is at her home-away-from home. The value and life lessons she is learning coincide with what we teach our daughter at home. The mix of social opportunities, creative learning, play, and a family feel were the perfect blend of what we were looking for in childcare.
