We are so thankful for MLH and the care that Kera Lewis-Rodriguez gives our children. We found MLH through a referral and have been nothing but pleased with the care our children receive and the growth we witness in them. My daughter was reading after just turning three, and our one year old's vocabulary and fine-motor skills are increasing daily. Kera is a fantastic provider. If you are in need of a safe and loving environment where you know your children will be happy, then certainly visit MLH!

My first daughter is going on her third year at Mother's Little Helper & my second daughter just joined in June. Both look forward to going to daycare everyday. I actually don't like to use the word "daycare" as MLH means more than to us. It's more like a fun learning facility. My girls enjoy the fun activities & daily exercises. When they come home & show me what they learned for the day, I ask "did you learn that in school today?"..."Nope, we learned it at Miss Kera's". THAT couldn't make me any happier! Thank you MLH

First and formost as a member of the childcare center I have been so amazed of the progress of each individual child, I give nothing but credit of the world to my lovely wife Kera. I admire her so deeply on not only how she strives to teach her children who she treats as her own, but the determination on no matter what is the circumstances of each child. I watch in a daily basis and by all means trust me when I say Kera would not sleep or rest till not only the children are assisted but the parents as well who she also helps when in need of advice or other situations as well.

They also have compation for there parents to because, of the many different work hours so they construct a plan that helps the parents. they also help the parents see special abilitys that each kid has. They also help the parents understand there kid better , I think they are a wonderfull at what they do and hope they can help more people in the future.

I have been a volunteer at MLH for a while and think it's a great place for kids to learn at such a young age. I mean there is little girls in the daycare that know sign language, I personally at 17 dont know sign language. The kids have respect for everyone and they get along. MLH is by far the best daycare I have been in and I give it a five star rating for that.

MLH Early Foundation is a center that really cares about its children as well as the parents. Kera Lewis is a fantastic provider who goes above and beyond the call of duty to provide for the children. MLH tries hard to work with all financial situations and support them whenever feasible. The school has recently enhanced its computer program through generous donations. MLH provides a great learning experience while providing a safe and comfortable environment.

My son has been going to Mother's Little Helper for just under a year and I couldn't be more pleased with the progress he's making. He's learning sign language and Spanish and his reading has improved dramatically with his attendance. My daughter has recently started attending Mother's Little Helper also and I cannot put into words the wonderful changes I have seen in my her. My daughter is taking more pride in herself and her work. I recommend Kera to everyone. I am so fortunate to be able to have my kids enrolled with her.

My daughter is learning to be a responsible human being and is taking more pride in herself and work. My son is becoming a strong reader and learning other languages.

I'd make it available to more families.

For the past six years that I have known Kera she has shown a growing love for children. She has always welcomed kids into her home which inspired her to open her own daycare center. Kera is a well rounded wholesome woman who has a significant amount of love and generosity to share. She has proven herself as a strong individual who simply loves to care for and shelter kids. kera has four beautiful kids of her own, each one unique in their own little ways, they are all well mannered, cheerful, and most importantly well loved. Kera is truly blessed with the patience, the understanding, and the intelligence it takes to raise a child.
Kera does so much more than just care for your child. She teaches them everything from school work, the importance of sharing, to basic manners like how and when to say thank you and your welcome. Kera is such an inspiration to me and how I would like to raise my newborn son. For as long as I have known Kera she has never given bad advice.
I would recommend Kera Lewis and her establishment to anyone. She truly posses the meaning of exceptional childcare.
