What people have to say...


April's Daycare is the best peace of mind a parent can have. After searching, and questioning a few in-home daycares, it was a breath of fresh air to find April's services! I can go to work with full confidence that my daughter is in a caring, safe and educational environment. She is also one of few places that are open in the latter hours of the day, which helps tremendously. I appreciate April and everything she does to keep a parent in good thoughts when they can't be with their child. - Dustin

April is the most reliable, trustworthy, and dependable day care provider I know of. Always available and open late. April is very caring to the children and clean. Her house is perfect for the children and has a great outdoor play area. My daughter always loved going to day care to see April and her friends. April is very compassionate towards the children and it's very clear when you go into her home and see the photos and drawings hanging up. She feeds them healthymeals and snacks. I recommend her to everyone! - AuBrie

I have used April's Childcare for about 3 years now and I am so thankful that we found her! This daycare is clean, she serves healthy food, she does special crafts with the kids during certain seasons, the children are made to use respectful manners and she is open 24 hours! I would recommend this childcare to anyone who works goofy hours and who wants their child being in a safe and secure setting while they work. - Kelly

Winter of 2015 I found my family needing childcare for my two youngest girls ( 8 and 2 at the time.) I was already working 2 jobs and my husband was working out of state. My jobs required me to find care that would be flexible with our hours but most importantly i needed a provider that would become part of our family  and open her heart to my girls.  Having grown up and spent my life working in the childcare field I was very selective in choosing a childcare provider. We are truly blessed to have our girls in care with April's daycare. My girls love going to April's daycare and always excited to see their friends there. Knowing that we can trust our kiddos are being cared for physically , emotionally and spiritually makes leaving them in daycare the best choice for our family . - Margaret

My son and I had a wonderful experience at April's 24 hr child care. What made us stay was she was so flexible w/hrs.  No matter what shift I was scheduled or even called in at the last minute, she was always availaable.  We were also well aware of holidays or vacations (which she never took but sincerely deserved), way ahead of when they were scheduled.  I know my son had a good time because whenever I would pick him up he always wanted to go back and play outside!  He also learned his manners while there.  Something his dad and I had a hard time trying to teach him until he attended April's.  If someone living in the Longview area asks me for a great child care, w/ flexible hrs and a great learning experience for kids, I would recommend April's 24 hr child care 110%!!  If we hadn't moved 30 minutes north, my son would still be enrolled.  Such an amazing place to send a child for daycare!  Alexandria R.

My name is Angela.  When I first moved Washington I was in search of a daycare that wasn't too expensive and had flexible hours.  My step mother told me to give April Valdez of April's Childcare a call becaus she watched my brother and sister for years.  They are now grown up but I knew I'd feel comfortable since my brother and sister were there from when they were very young until they didn't need childcare anymore.  My kids both went to April's for years.  I loved that she takes infants all the way to 12 years of age, provides meals, had very low rates compared to other providers, open 24 hours Monday through Friday and most importantly she's been around for many years as a licensed in home childcare provider.  She was very good with my children.  Her house is very clean and child friendly and she does lots of arts and crafts with the kids.  If I could have still taken my kids there when I moved out of the area I would have.  She is the best and I highly recommend her to anyone in search of a good in home childcare.  Angela M.
