We are so grateful to the amazing stuff at Tykes for all the love and care they have given our daughter! We had a terrible experience at other daycares, my daughter cried and refused to go. With Tykes, she loved it from the first day. No tears, only smiles. She became very independent and social. We are very grateful to all the teachers at Tykes for that. We highly recommend this daycare to anyone!

My kids went to Tykes for three years, and I couldn’t be happier with the care they received. Ms Belle was always understanding and accommodating, I felt comfortable with all of the educators and always felt like my kids were well taken care of.

My son is off to Junior Kindergarten after an AMAZING experience in preschool at Tykes. The facility itself is fantastic but the staff/teachers is what made the experience outstanding. My son has grown so much in his time at Tykes and it has truly helped him prepare for JK and his future! 100% recommend to anyone looking for one or the best child care centres in Durham!

I can’t say enough good things about Tykes of Columbus! I was so nervous to have my little one start here back at the end of April as she was only 8 months and she was my very first. Miss Bell and Miss Pam were both so caring and compassionate about the whole situation that they really eased my nerves! After the first couple days and every day since when I go to pick up Arianna she is full of smiles from her day at daycare. They learned how she likes to play, eat and everything else to make her feel comfortable. Everyone in the infant room has been top notch and my fiancé and I could not be any more pleased!

My son have been on the wait list in several daycares for months and I desperately needed a place for him to go to. After talking to Ms. Bell and explaining my urgency and situation, she offered a place right away!! I really appreciate their support and care and wish that other daycares had the same. My son loves this place now. He gets so excited to arrive here everyday where the days are packed with lots of fun activities, and joy! Highly recommend this daycare to anyone who is looking for some really good caring people ))

Edit** my kids have been with TOC since 2018 and ABSOLUTELY LOVE it, fast forward to now the last of my boys started school this September so they aged out BUT now my 6mo daughter has started and TOC has had 4 of my children and they love it I'd recommend to anyone looking for child care. My 3 boys going here after having a terrible hands in incident at another daycare with my oldest son whom is autistic. He was mortified to try another center came here and LOVED IT I noticed a drastic change in my kids. My oldest went from not talking to having a full vocabulary a 4 year old boy should have and he’s opened up so much. My middle son absolutely loves it as well, the teachers are so loving and caring he loves all the hugs and care he gets during the day. My youngest has special needs and needed services and help and Ms. Belle never once hesitated to be sure my youngest got the help he needed with programs out there to ensure his needs were met. I couldn’t recommend this child care centre enough they truly do care for the kids and not just a pay cheque! Never been so pleased, thanks Ms.Belle and Tykes staff for loving and caring for my boys!

My kids and I love Tykes of Columbus! They worked very well with my oldest son when he first started here and he struggled detaching from me, they comforted my son and got him to calm down, and would even call to update me reassuring me that he was better and having fun! It did not take them long to help my son let me leave without having a meltdown everyday. As for my youngest, he's a huge mommas boy and doesn't like many people, but the staff here are so welcoming and loving to him that he gets so excited to go! They are flexible with my work schedule and always in a nice, refreshing mood! I highly recommend this place!
