When my daughter started attending WCC-Cedar Creek it was the first time I was entrusting someone other than hospital staff or family to take car of her. It was also the first time I was allowed to as she was a preemie, born at 28 weeks. Even though she was one year old, she began in the Moon Room but as the years went on, the staff always encouraged her to remain with the correct peer group. If it weren't for this daycare, I do not think my daughter would be entering Kindergarten without any major educational or developmental delays. We are not only leaving daycare behind at WCC-CC, we are moving on from our second home. Her teachers over the years are more friends and family than simply staff. I would encourage and highly recommend your child being taken care of by this center, we are surely sad to go!
Outstanding is the word that comes to mind when I think of Wausau Child Care and the staff that have taken care of my daughter for the last 2 1/2 years. The staff make a warm and welcoming environment where children are allowed to learn and explore. My daughter also attended 4K in the Teddy Bear room with Ms. Tanya and Ms. Brea and the development she made from the beginning of the year to the end was truly something special to watch. And be able to participate in parent activities was very special.
The teachers at Wausau Child Care, especially those in the Tadpole Room always give the best care to our son. They treat him as a member of their own family. They greet him each day with a friendly, caring smile and say good-bye with an anecdote from his day. It makes it easier to leave him each day knowing he is in the best care possible! Thank you Ms. Mai, Ms. Kelly, Ms. Sandy and Ms. Rosie for being such wonderful people in our son's life!
Wausau Child Care is an awesome place!
The staff is always very friendly and listen to my concerns/requests. Excellent care of my children, as my oldest always has exciting things to share with me everyday and something new he learned.
I'm at ease that my children are well taken care of, safe and learning everyday. I've never been anywhere else that has such friendly staff.
Thank you WCC for everything you do for our family!
Our son's social skills have improved a lot. We appreciate all the staff members' hard work and patience with our son. We enjoy all the staff and hope to stay with Wausau Child Care Inc. for many more years to come.
My brother had taken his kids to WCC and highly recommended it to me when my daughter was born. As soon as we walked in for our tour, we were greeted warmly and with respect. My daughter will be two now and that same care and respect has been shown from the staff since that first day. Teachers who don't have to interact with us know her name and share stories about times they've helped in her room or just see her around and make sure she's having fun each day. We've had flexible schedules when needed and someone is always available if we ever have questions or concerns.
My daughter loves the friends she's made and the teachers she's had so far. I imagine the next two years will be just as great! We plan on having another child and will definitely bring him/her here as well. I can't imagine a better place.
When my husband and I originally researched daycare, a lot of research went into it. After comparing price, programs, locations and several other factors, we decided on Wausau Child Care. Our son has been there over a year. Even with the staff changes and moving through the program, he's happy when we drop him off and when we pick him up. We look forward to him going through the whole program at the Cedar Creek Center and we know that the staff will continue to be excellent.
WCC has been wonderful for both my child and myself. The staff are always very personable and kind. they have taught my daughter so much in caring for her. I can always have a great conversation with her teachers when I drop her off or pick her up making me so comfortable leaving her in their care. They have helped during transitions such as bottle to sippy and no more nuk. I couldn't have done those things so well without their help.
You guys are awesome! Keep up the amazing job you always do!!
As parents of a smiley, yet very particular baby girl, we are so grateful for the teachers, assistant director and director at WCC - Cedar Creek. Our daughter is small for her age and there was concern over her slow weight gain for the first 6 months of her life. She is very sensitive to who is feeding her, how she is being held, and the temperature of the breast milk. WCC staff have done everything possible to ensure our daughter takes in as much as possible. If she refused her bottle, they would try a different position, a different teacher, etc. It was so comforting as a worried parent, to see how much WCC cared and the lengths they would go to in an effort to help our daughter eat. The teachers know her so well - she is always full of smiles each morning when she sees them. I also love how involved the director and assistant director are in the day to day care in the classrooms.
Our son is in the 3 year old room at WCC - Cedar Creek. We are grateful for the learning opportunities and socialization he is exposed to in this environment. As he is a very energetic 3 year old, it is always nice to hear teachers say positive things about his questions, personality and detailed stories. we are thankful for the teachers who can see beyond some of the frustrating 3 year old behaviors and instead highlight our son's curiosity, personality and vitality.
We also greatly appreciate the direct involvement of the director and assistant director in the classrooms. They know the children well, respond to questions in a very timely fashion and are open to suggestions/ideas
WCC - Westside Center: Drop off for my son can be difficult. I love how his teacher comes over to comfort him. She'll give him a hug, reassure him that I will be back and then distract him with his favorite toy. Knowing that he is with a teacher that is kind, patient and compassionate really lets me know he is in good hands.
My daughter has been at Wausau Child Care since she was 12 weeks old. Over the past year, she has grown into a wonderful little girl. The dedication of her teachers have helped guider her in all the right directions and helped my husband and myself as first time parents overcome any challenges we've had. All the teachers are so welcoming and truly care for the children. I couldn't see my daughter at any other place simply because of how wonderful and educational Wausau Child Care has been for my daughter

"There comes a time where, as always in life, the best things that happen to us have to come to an end. Sadly, that time has come for our beautiful princess, Kayla Sophia, for the first time in her life. She will be moving forward to her next stage and the first step on this new path is Kindergarten.
Since she was six months old, she came to be a part of the Wausau Child Care family, as we came to be a part of your institution as well, and there are no words to describe the gratitude, respect, appreciation and thankfulmess our family have for each one of the amazing members of your center, the ones that still remain and the others that have been with us over the past four and a half years.
We strongly believe that many of the amazing skills, humble attitudes and the different innocent ways of driving us crazy as parents (which make us very happy and proud), were obtained through tireless dedication and endless patience, we honestly can say, that it has been a rewarding experience for all of the members of our family, even our loved ones that live thousands of miles away; you wouldn't believe the reach of what you do, or perhaps you do, as an example every time that we shared with grandpa or grandma, or aunty or uncle any of the stories, pieces of homework made through the different special occasions of the year, you made many people happy and proud, in a different language in a different country, for this and so much more, THANK YOU ALL.
As long as we take good care for our children, there always be hope for us, God bless the marvelous human beings who dedicate their lives to preserve, to improve, and to strengthen the sacred bond we have with our sons and daughters, your profession is perhaps one of the most important in our society.
We wish you the best, and as it turns out, our Matthew is going to stay with you for the next few years, so the headaches from our family are not ending really soon...
Thank you very much for all of what you have done for our princess, thank you for your patience and thank you for showing us and teach us so many things over the last few years, please keep the highest pride on what you do, at the end of the day, when I play with my children and I look into their eyes, I can see happiness, hope, dreams, wonder, eagerness for life, and many more things that we inexplicable lose as we grow up, and you are a big reason for all these wonderful great pieces in the life of our little angels."

We've met at a Health Department meeting in the past, but I wanted to send you a note to let you know how great your staff at the Franklin Center are.
My son, Forrest, is in the Honeybee room. A couple weeks back, he got a fever and was crying. I hurried over, and as I arrived, Miss Sue was cuddling him and comforting him. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to know that my son, in any circumstance, will be well cared for.
His teacher, April, is also really engaging. She always takes time to let me know what activities Forrest is doing. Forrest loves her and your other staff, particularly Kelly and Karen, and talks about them at home. On weekend days, he frequently asks if he'll get to see April, Kelly, or Karen. Thank you for providing that peace of mind. It is priceless."

"I spent many hours thinking & worrying about how to choose the right daycare. Since my daughter was only going to be part time, I was looking for a daycare that was going to provide a rich learning environment that would be both fun and educational. I wanted to find a place where she would get the individual attention that I wanted her to have and the interaction with other children that I felt she needs. I am happy to say that Wausau Child Care provides that environment. Although she has interacted with many of the teachers, she spends the most time with Miss Hollie and Miss Stacie. They are very attentative to her little quirks. They are willing to help me "work" on particular things with her (i.e. tummy time). I always feel comfortable expressing my concerns with them. My favorite thing is all of the fun artwork she brings home. I need to get a bin to store it all. I know she is learning things there that she might not learn otherwise or at a different daycare. I know she is in good hands when I leave her there."

"To know your child is at a safe place and that he/she is always well cared for is so important. I appreciate very much the communication that is given every day by your staff. Thank you very much for all you do."

"My daughter has been going to Wausau Child Care for one month now and I cannot say enough good things about the program and staff. Ms. Amy, Ms. Sandy, Ms. Karen, Ms. Mai, Ms. Sue and Ms. April are wonderful and very caring. They accepted Lauren into the program and have made her feel comfortable. I love the daily report cards and activity sheets so I can see what she is doing each week. The holiday season was great and Lauren's highlight was Santa. I am so glad we found this place!"

"I remember crying while sitting in my car the first day I dropped my soon-to-be two year old daughter off at WCC. Ms. Sheila was reassuring and Kyra immediately was smiling. However, I was a guilt-ridden mess. As the weeks went by, I felt blessed to have such loving, understanding and patient adults taking care of Kyra. That became more evident than ever when Kyra was in Ms. Stacie's classroom. Kyra starting having some challenging behaviors and, at first, we couldn't figure out what was causing them. My heart was literally breaking every day I was watching my happy little girl struggling to fit in. Ms. Stacie and all of the WCC staff never judged or treated Kyra differently. They were only concerned and wanted to help. Finally, we found out that Kyra had ADHD and needed the doctor's help. The first day in over three months, I walked into the classroom and Kyra was smiling with pride as she had a "good" day. No reports of misbehaving! Instead, she was herself again! Playing with friends, giving her teachers hugs and full of optimism. I cried that day too, but tears of happiness and gratitude for the wonderful people at WCC. Since then, I've trusted them with two more of my children. No other child care center compares!"

"Prior to the birth of our daughter, my husband and I researched and visited several daycare locations. We finally chose Wausau Child Care Center - Cedar Creek due to location, cleanliness, security & safety and incredible flexibility. My husband and I couldn't be happier. WCC - Cedar Creek provides individualized attention with organized activities, smaller class sizes, very flexible hours and consistent, friendly faces. (I don't think anyone ever has a bad day.) Our favorite teachers have been Miss Morgan and Miss Hollie - but, in all honesty, we've spent the most time with them. I feel very comfortable leaving my only daughter in their care knowing they would treat here as their own. As new parents, we look forward to the activities sent home to save for her to look through when she is older. Our favorite was the Christmas ornament. How precious! Another note (yes, one more) - Miss Melissa always greets families and makes sure to smile and wish us a happy day. I will never forget my feeling of terror dropping off Layla on her first day of care. Miss Melissa walked me down, made sure I knew the procedures and, if I had questions, they were answered. It let a load of concern fall off my shoulders. Thank you. It surely isn't easy having others take care of my daughter. We want to be with her every moment to value her precious life and milestones."

"Our son was 6 months old when he started at Wausau Child Care. He had a bit of a hard time adjusting, but the staff in the Moon Room were super patient and flexible so that my son could transition easier. They communicate with us wonderfully and that makes it easier to drop him off. If we can't be with him every day, I can't think of a better place to take him."
