Turtle Town Toddler Day Care in Boca Raton

Turtle Town Toddler Daycare Logo

Turtle Town a Licensed Day Care in Boca RatonTurtle Town Day Care in Boca RatonI am so crazy happy to introduce you to Turtle Town Daycare in Boca Raton.  Melissa Durniok runs a Licensed In-Home Daycare located in Boca Raton that specializes in Toddlers!  Our daughters have gone to school together for three years now, and I can tell you honestly, that if I had a toddler, there is no other place I would leave her!  In fact, I have dropped my daughter off at Melissa’s house for play dates without any hesitation! (Those who know me, understand that I  rarely leave my daughter anywhere, so that is a huge endorsement!).

Here is what Melissa has to say about Turtle Town:

Melissa at Turtle Town a Licensed Day Care in Boca Raton“My name is Melissa and I have a MSW and have worked with children in social work my entire life.  I ran a licensed in-home daycare in MA for 3 years before moving to Boca Raton.  I have been open for 1 year now and currently have both full-time and part-time openings.  I take children ages 15 months and older as I do a full toddler curriculum and activities.  I have 4 play spaces inside the home filled with toys and educational fun.

Turtle Town Day Care in Boca RatonOutside I have a full playground with many riding toys, water tables, play houses, toddler slides, a swing set and sand tables for fun.

I would love for you to come out and visit us with your little one to Turtle Town Daycare soon!

Please see more about Turtle Town at www.turtletowndaycare.com to see photos and more in my handbook!  Feel free to email me at melldell@comcast.net for further information.”

Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks

Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks

I had the amazing opportunity to go stay with a friend in Albuquerque New Mexico over the Labor Day weekend.  It really was incredible, and I was sorry I had such a short time there!  I would definitely recommend the area as family vacation!

One of the places we went to was called Tent Rocks National Park.  It was such a different environment for me, I was completely overwhelmed.  Here is what you need to know about visiting Tent Rocks in Albuquerque New Mexico.

Flamingo Gardens BearWe are so proud to be able to call Flamingo Gardens our sponsor for yet another year! If you have never been there, now is the time.  You can still take advantage of the special September pricing this weekend.
