Testimonials

We work hard to provide the best care possible, we treat each and every child as if they were our own.  Here are some of the great things our parents are saying about us.

            

I highly recommend this wonderful preschool – A New Day Child Development Center is a wonderful place for our son (4). Initially, we shopped around for a preschool looking for good quality care and instruction at a reasonably price and we couldn t be happier with our choice! It s been a great 2 years! A New Day is an inviting, stimulating, safe, and fun place that he LOVES to go to (seriously we don t have to battle to get him ready for school!). As working parents we worried about finding a place where he would feel at home and still get all the stimulation he needs. He is engaged and excited, and comes home sharing new stories, songs, words, concepts and things he has learned. Apart from this, they also learn good manners, sharing and caring. He loves all the ladies who work there and I always get the feeling that they would do everything in their power to make sure he s ok. Mrs. Irma and her team are experts, have a great place and they are exceptionally capable, loving and nurturing. He loves it at New Day our experience has been very positive and I recommend it to everyone I meet who are looking for a place for their kid.

We are so fortunate and blessed to have found A New Day CDC. Irma and her staff are absolutely amazing and provide a disciplined, well structured, fun and loving environment for the kids. Irma gives a new meaning to “Owner Operated” and is involved in every aspect of the school’s operations, program development, etc. I pick my kids up from school each day and they are sad to leave but excited about tomorrow’s adventures. We relocated from Southern California to Texas and were anxious about switching schools. From the moment we walked in and were welcomed with extended and kind arms – we knew we’d found a great home for our kids. We found out about A New Day CDC through a friend of a friend who gave glowing reviews. To me, that’s the best way to find out about a school – talk to other parents. We’re lucky to be part of the A.N.D.C.D.C. family and so thankful for this wonderful school!

My daughter is a new student at A New Day Child Development Center and it already is the best move I made for her. She had attended a different school and I was not seeing her growing or learning the way I was wanting for her to. In the first week my daughter is already coming home from school ecstatic to tell me, “Mommy! Today I learned Spanish!” (Which was also a huge plus here at this school.) I see her doing more, learning more and growing more in this week than what I was getting the last two years at her prior school. Irma, the owner/director of the school has been amazing and I truly feel blessed that I was connected with this school. It is an incredible feeling being able to watch your daughter grow and learn. I believe, having the right school plays a huge part in that. So Thank you, A New Day CDC, for being apart of this adventure in teaching my daughter and watching her grow!

A New Day CDC is a great place where I feel comfortable taking my 2 year old. Irma and all of the staff are very loving and caring. The school has great programs such as the annual Christmas program, Easter Egg Hunts, photo sessions during school hours with a professional photographer (not standard school pictures), and haircut sessions on select days if you chose to participate. The school does not operate out of a mega-building, therefore making it ideal for children who haven’t been to school before. The atmosphere is very friendly and welcoming. My child loves going to school at A New Day. I am so happy that my friend recommended it to me.

A New Day CDC has been a great find for our preschooler. It’s a great cross between being at home and going to Kindergarten, so I know my daughter will be prepared to go to school in the fall. The teachers are loving and care for the kids. Irma is involved every day with the kids and the curriculum. My daughter loves going to A New Day because she loves to learn new things and play with her friends. She has bonded with her teachers and enjoyed each of the field trips she’s gone on. She is disappointed some weekends because she doesn’t get to go to school.

I absolutely love A New Day Child Development Center! We are so blessed and grateful to have found Irma and all the wonderful teachers at this school. My son was unhappy in another school and we were referred here and have not looked back! Not only is the environment a great learning one, but also it is a very warm, nurturing and safe place for children. I tell everyone I can how much we love it!

Everyone is great with the kids, and Irma has always been fair. They work hard to make it a fun and educational experience. The Christmas program has been at Spicewood Vineyard the last two years, so that’s always fun! Irma has also planned occasional get-togethers for all the parents to meet, which is a great idea since we’re usually running past each other trying to get to work, etc.

My husband and I LOVE this place! We actually pulled our daughter out of Primrose in favor of A New Day. For the 12 + months we had her at this well-respected pre-school, we had a ridiculously hard time convincing her to go. It was excruciating to know how much she didn’t want to go, yet finding no visible reason to quit sending her. We finally made the switch when we were looking to cut expenses and drive time. After a couple of days, we noticed the first sign that we’d done the right thing. We went inside to pick her up. She was busy at the arts and crafts table. I gently ran my fingers through her hair and she didn’t turn around to see who had touched her. WHAT!? At Primrose, she would whip her head around to see who it was and either begin crying (I assume with relief) or drop what she was doing to grab her backpack and want to get going STAT. But on this day, she continued her craft even after she realized we were there to pick her up. I took this as an indicator that she probably receives a good amount of affection. In the mornings, she’s eager to get dressed and get to school to see her friends. Ms. Irma keeps us informed as to how she’s doing – just yesterday we got a text letting us know that our daughter had been coughing. I was able to stop by the pharmacy and pick up saline spray before picking her up. (“A” is for Austin and Allergies!) Ms. Irma cares deeply about the children and it shows. She runs A New Day like a well-oiled machine and I have full confidence in leaving my precious cargo with her. I can’t believe we waited this long to make the better choice!

This is the third school we have attended and by far the best. We love all the teachers, my son learns so much and really enjoys it. We had issues at the other schools but since he has been here everything is great. He doesn’t try to fight, uses his words and manners better now too. I can not even explain how blessed we are to have found this place.

My husband and I are overjoyed to have our daughter At A New Day CDC.  After months of searching for a center that would meet our needs as well as our daughters, we finally found perfection.  Ms. Irma and her incredible staff have done an amazing job with my 2.5 year old. I see it everyday in her creativity, her verbal expressions and her sense of self, that which can only come from a n intimate and personal setting like A New Day. Thank you so much Ms. Irma and staff for sharing you talents with all of our children.

Audrey W.Spicewood, TX-10/2012

 

A New Day CDC is like a home away from home – Irma and her team knows how to work with the little ones to make them feel loved and cherished – as well as to prepare them for school and life in general. It feels like a partnership, or extension from the home, and they do all they can to ensure the kids get off to a great start in life. I really liked the smaller teacher – kids ratios – they get to know each child personally, and I never had an issue to get my little one to ‘school’ – she went smiling every day. I can sincerely recommend this facility for your kids – they will be loved and nurtured in a great environment.

Charmaine S.Spicewood, TX-10/2012

 

We just love Ms. Irma and her school “A New Day CDC”. I had my Grandson staying with me for 3 yrs. and he went to “A New Day CDC”. He was a bit of a hand full, as they say very active, and very smart. Ms. Irma and her staff help me turn my Grandson into a boy that would listen & play well with others. It was nothing short of a miracle. He wanted to go to school every day, even the weekends! He was well prepared for Pre-K and is now in Kindergarten at regular school. He gets “Green Smiley Faces” almost every day!  In the future if I am in need of childcare I will return to “A New Day”.

Robin C.-Spicewood, TX-10/2012

 

Fantastic alternative to staying home with our son!  When we lost hope of securing a spot in any of the schools we visited, we found Ms. Irma and her school and knew we were in the right place.  That first day of wonder and uncertainty was alleviated by the multiple text and photos regarding our son’s progress and smiles of his first day of school.  The staff is top notch regarding each teacher:  loving, caring and nurturing.  Whether a regular school day, theme day or field trip day, the kids are safe, nurtured and taught something special toward creating a foundation of learning in each child.  We are grateful to Ms. Irma for creating such a place for our son to spend his day!

Russ E.-Austin, TX-10/2012

 

I am one picky parent and want the best for my child.  I could not have picked a better place for my child not only to be loved and cared for, but he is also learning so much.  I am very pleased with A New Day Child Development Center.  Ms. Irma, Mrs. Kit & Mrs. Gayle are absolutely amazing at what they do with these kids each and every day.

Jan G-Briarcliff, TX-10/16/2012        

 

My child has been fortunate to be cared for and extremely loved at A New Day Child Development Center for over a year now. Words cannot express the joy of seeing him light up when he knows we are on our way not only to see his friends but the pure delight he shows at the mentioning of Ms. Irma, Mrs. Gayle, Mrs. Kit & Ms. Norma. 

This is exactly what I need to be reassured that my child is not only learning beyond my expectations but that he is also being loved all in the same day. 

It speaks volumes that the purpose and mission of the owner and teaching staff all strive to higher standards than what is required by licensing requirements. They truly care about the quality of education and childcare they provide and they take pride in what they do. It’s important to me to know that my child is progressing developmentally, socially and academically; with a staff that shows each and every child love, compassion and guidance. 

This is truly a school that is definitely making a difference in our children’s lives and in our community.

A New Day CDC is a wonderful place for our son (3). We recently moved to Austin from another country and this has been very stressful for him. A New Day has been inviting, safe, hygienic and warm with a homely atmosphere where he loves to go. Ms. Irma and her team are experts, have a great place and they are exceptionally capable, loving and nurturing. As working parents we worried about finding that special place where your child will feel at home and still get all the stimulation he needs. He is engaged and excited, and comes home sharing new stories, songs, words, concepts and things he has learned. Apart from these things they also learn good manners, sharing and caring. He loves it!

MML-Austin, TX-07/2012

 

I feel lucky that I found A New Day CDC. Irma and her staff genuinely love and have provided a safe, clean, and nurturing environment for my son for almost a year. I enrolled my son when he was 20 months, and almost immediately his vocabulary expanded. The school is small, allowing my child to have a lot of attention and really get to know his classmates. One of the reasons I love A New Day so much is that Ms. Irma’s protocols and professionalism always have the best interest of your child. I would recommend A New Day CDC to any parent with the utmost confidence. Leaving your child in someone else’s care is a big deal. The sincerity and genuine love the teachers have for their students will make you feel at ease to know they are in a great place.

Alex Davis-Austin, TX-07/2012 

 

Our son was having issues at another daycare. We had to struggle in the morning when dropping him off; he didn’t want to stay there and would cry. He was also scratching and biting his friends. We had to find an alternative. He now goes to New Day child development center. In the morning, he runs in and he is not scratched or bitten anybody since. We are so happy – and relieved – to have found Ms. Irma’s wonderful center. Our son is doing great and we know he is well cared for throughout the day.

Ms. Irma and her staff are so caring and knowledgeable about young children. The facility is super clean and organized. The staff shows respect and boundaries that create a peaceful and thoughtful environment. Highly recommended!

C. Cucina-Austin, TX-05/2012

A New Day CDC is a wonderful place for our kids. (3 and 2) Ms. Irma, Mrs. Gayle and Mrs. Kit are all so loving to our children. Our son can’t wait to get there to see his teacher every day. The atmosphere is very homey, organized, clean and conducive to a wonderful learning and growing environment. We love all of the activities that they do, including field trips, arts, crafts, celebrations etc. We have visited a ton of other places in the Austin area, and A New Day CDC is by far the best we found. Our 23 month old has really improved in her talking, playing and sharing since she’s been there, and our 3 year old enjoys his friends and learning. As working parents, it is hard to entrust a capable, loving, nurturing environment for your kids at a young age. It is so important to find a safe place for them while away from home. Ms. Irma treats our kids like her own. She is an expert at what she does and all of us truly love her for the care she gives and the job she does on a daily basis.

Referrals from parents who attended Ms. Irma’s House Preschool & Day Care in Victoria TX

“Ms. Irma provides a quality, safe daycare environment in which children are encouraged to grow, learn and play as young children should in a warm and caring environment. I have highly recommended her to several of my close friends and co-workers whose children have also flourished under her care.

I have known Irma for over 10 years now and have stayed close friend till today. The first encounter I personally had with her was when my daughter, who is now 12 years old, was an infant. From the time my daughter, Katelynn, was eighteen months until four years old; she attended Ms. Irma’s Preschool/Daycare. Since then, my son, Kaleb, who is now 10 years old, also attended Ms. Irma’s Preschool/Daycare from eighteen months until four years old. The presence she has with the children is exceptional. It’s amazing, the things she has accomplished with many children she has cared for. All children in her care have the utmost respect for her and staff.

Irma not only has the patience and understanding for children, but she is a true Christian and it definitely shows. She sincerely cares for people. When I would drop my children off at preschool, I was always assured that they were in the best of hands. I was always impressed with her in the fact that not only does she plan activities for the children, but she goes above and beyond. The children are treated to field trips year round. She took the girls, and sometimes boys to dance class on Tuesdays. Ms. Irma was an active participant in the yearly recital with her class. All the parents are welcome into her preschool at any time and are actively encouraged to attend the field trips.

Ms. Irma presents the children with a daily curriculum providing materials, activities and guidance so that each child develops academically to their fullest potential. Both of my children left her care with knowledge that more than prepared them for kindergarten. Each child learns to count, to name colors, in both English and Spanish, and many other social skills. Both of my children loved going to her preschool. She is active in caring for all the children in her care.

I feel as if Irma cared for my children as if they were her own. I also believe that this community will suffer a great loss after she moves on. She undeniably established a very reputable name for herself in our community. However, the others that have the opportunity to receive her will be gaining a great blessing.”

“Irma,

Words cannot express how grateful I am for all that you have done for Grant over the last two years. It’s amazing to me how fast two years went by. It feels like yesterday when I was enrolling him in your daycare. I guess we say that about life in general, don’t we? Time goes by so fast and it is so easy to take things for granted. I definitely have never taken you for granted and have always appreciated your patience, love, and caring for Grant. In the past two years, I have seen big changes in him. He has been molded by a wonderful, Godly woman. You have shaped him into a smart little boy who loves to learn. What a blessing you have been to us. I can’t thank you enough.

My prayer is that God will continue to bless others by using you to touch their children’s lives, as well as the entire family. I can see how God is using your talents for his purpose and I am so thankful that he put you in my life. I look forward to the day when I get to bring my next baby to you.

My love goes to you Irma.”

“My daughter has been in Ms. Irma’s care for the past 3 1/2 years and she has become a part of our family. Each day I knew she was happy, learning, safe, and well-disciplined. Ms. Irma loves our Reilly as if she was her own, and I will forever be grateful for the time Reilly has been awarded with Ms. Irma in her life! As we move on to kindergarten, we will always look back on her preschool time with Ms. Irma as a truly blessed time in our lives!”

Courtney and Eric Amsler-Victoria, TX

“Ms. Irma’s preschool has provided our daughter with safe, reliable, and nurturing childcare during the last two years. Her preschool program is the best!”

Kirk & Lindsey Travis-Victoria, TX

“Ms. Irma was my child care provider for my daughter who is now 8 years old and my son who is now 6 years old. Both of my children loved Mrs. Irma. There was never a day that they didn’t want to go to Ms. Irma’s House. Their faces would light up and a HUGE smile would appear on their faces anytime they saw Ms. Irma, or her name was mentioned. Ms. Irma opened up her arms and heart for every child who stepped through her door.

I never thought of Ms. Irma as a “babysitter”. She was a person who cared, loved, taught, encouraged, guided and provided for each and every child no matter of their differences. She always made children feel special and like they were the smartest kids ever! My children learned how to socialize, treat others and were prepared more than expected for pre-school and kindergarten. Irma expected nothing but the best from each child. The children knew their expectations, but never struggled to achieve! She made the environment safe and nurturing so that all kids could achieve socially and grow with knowledge. I thank Ms. Irma for helping both of my children develop the wonderful personalities that they have. Ms. Irma allowed each one of them to be who they are.

Ms. Irma will be missed by many young and old in Victoria, Texas, but her legacy will never die. My children will always hold a special place in their heart for Ms. Irma!”

Kyle & Susan Lofland-Victoria, TX

“There is no private or public daycare facility that can compare to Ms. Irma’s Preschool. She is devoted to the education and well being of all the children in her care and my son looks forward to going every morning. He is always talking about the activities he did with his Ms. Irma and his friends. Even though I could place my son in public school this year and save money there is no way that I would because he is getting a better education where he is and we really wish he could stay and be home schooled. Thanks Ms. Irma for doing a GREAT JOB!!!!”

Brian & Stacey Whalon-Victoria, TX

“We are extremely happy with the caring, nurturing environment that Ms. Irma provides at her daycare. My daughter has really thrived and has learned so much since she has started going there. We feel very fortunate to have had a place that we feel so comfortable leaving our daughter at when we are working. It has truly been our daughter’s home away from home.

Also, if any of your future parents would like to talk with other parents whose children you have watched; please feel free to give out our contact info as a reference. We’re very sad that you are moving to Austin, but are also excited about this opportunity for you. I know that it will be no time at all before you have your new place filled up and a full waiting list with parents waiting in line.

Thanks,”
Joe & Melissa Smith-Victoria, TX

“The next best thing to being a “stay at home mom” is being fortunate enough to have my child enrolled at Ms. Irma’s daycare and preschool. Ms. Irma cares for all the children as though they are her own and she provides a very safe, structured environment for them to play, learn and grow. We were blessed to have such a wonderful person care for our child.”

Beth, Sam, and Gwyneth-Victoria, TX

“Ms. Irma’s reputation in the childcare industry is well known and for good reason. My daughter would not have attended anywhere else because I knew, above all, that at Ms. Irma’s facility she would receive a great deal of love and attention. It is beyond comforting to have your child within her care. She builds a lasting relationship not only with the children, but with the parents as well and keeps everyone involved and aware of lesson plans and special projects she has going on. With such a loving atmosphere, my child learned a great deal and Ms. Irma holds a special spot in our heart.”

“Ms. Irma’s Preschool was a wonderful place for our son. I account his ability to read so well as a Kindergartner to Ms. Irma and her staff for their daily learning routines. He still remembers all the friends he made while attending. I always knew he was safe and being cared for by loving individuals. I would recommend Ms. Irma’s Preschool to everyone.”
