"I am always in awe of Cheryl's dedication to exploring a variety of sensory learning experiences for the children. She is always looking for ways to allow the children to investigate and share their own personal interests... Cheryl dives into whatever the children show an interest in and much more.
She continues to warm the heart of my youngest, tender-hearted, daughter who looks forward to a warm embrace and kind smile each day when we arrive.
When I think of Cherly and Cuddle Time, I think of a second family for my children."
"If I could give 10 stars I would! I'm a first time Mama, and luckily I got to stay home with my son until he was 2. Then it was time for me to find child care for my precious boy. I was straight up nervous and didn't think I could hand over the well-being of my baby to a stranger.
We looked at several daycare/preschool places and nothing compared to Cuddle Time. Not only did my son not want to leave at the first visit, but neither did I.
Cheryl, the owner has created this amazing environment for her "kids". Inside she has about 5 different areas that are all different and have been transformed into a young child's dream! And her backyard is incredible!! With a koi pond, sand pit, bike trail, wooden play fort, and arts and crafts area.
Her learning agenda is always changing and the kids are always doing new things and developing every day.
The staff, including Cheryl, the owner, Cindy, and Sara are THE BEST!! They make me feel like my little one is in well-educated, and capable hands. My son Looooooves Sara.
From the bunnies, koi fish, balanced meals, picture texts, daily report card, take home art projects, outside school events, to the best staff, I wouldn't trust anyone else with my most beloved boy!
We've been using Cuddle Time for 1 year, and will use them until he graduates into Kindergarten."
"We love Cuddle Time Preschool! Teacher Cheryl, Cindy, and Sarah are nurturing and loving teachers. They are patient with our daughter and celebrate her and her learning. This place is a real gem. Our daughter loves going there and is very attached to her teachers. All of the teachers feel like family to us. We are so grateful for their flexibility with us and the care that they show our daughter. As a busy mom, I don't have a lot of time for creative projects and one on one learning activities. I love that my daughter gets a rich learning environment while at Cuddle Time."
"I am a Gramma to a wonderful 21 month old who is the light of our lives and joy in our hearts and choosing Cuddle Time and Miss Cheryl has been nothing but positive and rewarding. A very bad experience at a center with several locations in the greater PDX area left us desperate to give this child a better experience, but petrified of where to go next. A friend's referral led us to Cuddle Time her child had been there a few years - and she has nothing but positive things to say. We all loved Cheryl right away, including our sweet girl. This little peanut went from being very sad on the drive to the Center to joy and singing in excitement on her way to see Miss Cheryl, Miss Sarah and Miss Cindy - and Buddy the dog, the kitty cats, birdies, guinea pigs, bunnies, chickens and fishes. In fact, going to Cuddle Time to see Miss Cheryl is what gets her motivated in the morning. She is thriving. Cheryl and her team are developmentally appropriate, encouraging, warm, loving and creative. They foster friendships, assist in navigating the trouble spots of being a kiddo, offer guidance and are tolerant of individual choices. There are daily art projects, story times, gross and fine motor play, and daily take home sheets of what your child did, what they ate, and cute anecdotes. Indoor and outdoor play areas have to be seen to be appreciated - they are a child's imagination come to be.
I don't even know if she has any openings.... but if she does- you owe it to yourself and your munchkin to check it out!"
"My child is 'graduating' after two and a half years. We had a great experience with Cheryl, Cindi and Rose, the primary care providers.
We enjoyed the numerous animals on the premises, as well as the varied daily activities and regular routines.
For us, it's been wonderful. I imagine we'll be back for some of the events when 'alumni' are invited. Best sign, I think, my child wants to go there in the morning and doesn't want to leave!"
"One of our favorite things about Cheryl is that she makes sure the kids get outside everyday. Even on the rainiest of days, they may only run out and run right back in, but that shows use that she understands that it is important for the kids to get out...
We could not have asked for a better place for our child!"
"Cuddle Time is flexible, loving, creative and fun. My kids love it.
The caregivers have a lot of experience with children and know what kids need. My daughters are part of a loving community that has enriched their lives.
The facility is pretty impressing - a year round outdoor deck, several rooms inside with everything you would want in an early childhood development center and several outdoor play areas, and chickens, guinea pigs and rabbits!"
