Even though it has been a few years since my little one has been there, you will always have a special place in our hearts! I was so scared to leave Ella that first day. Just two years-old seemed so small. I left her crying and cried myself until you called me all of five minutes later to tell me she was fine:) She came home so very happy and I knew in my heart sending her to your home was one of the best decisions we ever made for her! It was truly a home away from home for her. Ella felt comfortable and secure from the very first day! I started to notice her interacting more with other kids. I noticed this security and confidence evolve right before my eyes!
Working night meant I was asleep while she was in your care. I never once felt as though I didn't rest soundly. I knew you were taking care of her as your own child! You were flexible with my schedule and allowed me to focus on my rest.
She always came home with a smile on her face and memories she will always carry in her heart! Your girls are some of the sweetest children mine has ever met! The friendships she made will always make my heart smile!
Ella is now almost seven and I cannot believe how the time has past. When we had to leave to move across the country, it was such a sad loss for me! You were such a part of our lives. You may not realize what you have done for her, but you have touched her heart and assisted me in raising a confident, self-sufficient, sweet, well-mannered little girl. Most of all, you gave her happy days filled with learning experiences and friendships that mean the world to her and I!
When we left, you did something amazing for me......a cd filled with pictures of the days Ella spent with you and all her friends. It was a wonderful and thoughtful gift!
You are an extraordinary woman who was born to do what you do! I hope all the parents who entrust your children to you know how lucky they are! We miss you always and our hearts will forever have a huge spot for you and your family!
Love, Karin and Ella
To Whom It May Concern:
This letter serves as a recommendation for Lil’ Angels Family Learning, owned and operated by Amber Spear.
As a working mother, it’s hard to find a place that can provide a comfortable and secure environment; however, I found that place with Lil’ Angels Family Learning.
My daughter attended Lil’ Angels Family Learning from January 2003 through April 2007. While in Amber’s care, she learned everything from her ABC’s, numbers, letter and number recognition to opposites and same, shapes, music, art appreciation, dance, and even computers. She also learned life enhancement skills such as sharing, patience, understanding and love. Amber creates an environment where children have fun as well as develop wonderful relationships with learning and with each other.
Amber and her family have become such an intricate part of our lives, and while we don’t see them everyday anymore, I attribute so much of my daughter’s growth and excelled development to Lil’ Angels Family Learning, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for the very best care for their child.
The love and patience provided by Amber makes us realize how lucky we were to have found a place we can still call our home away from home. You will not find care like this anywhere else. I’d highly recommend Lil’ Angels Family Learning, you’re guaranteed to receive the type of care you would give your child.
Please feel free to contact me for more information.
As a parent who has two kids at Lil’ Angels Family Learning Center, I cannot express how much we think of Amber and the care she provides. She has watched my 3 year old and 14 month old since they were six weeks old. Leaving your little one at such a young age is extremely difficult to do, however Amber’s personalized and loving relationship she builds with all her children is top notch. I honestly never worry about them. On top of providing a safe environment, Amber goes above and beyond to teach each child. My 14 month old is already building letter recognition. My three year old knows all his letters and sounds, colors, numbers, and other various key knowledge skills that are covered in Kindergarten. Amber runs a schedule that the kids know what is coming and are extremely excited to attend every day. My kids have learned the importance of relationship building. She emphasizes manners and respect for everyone. She runs Holiday parties, themed preschool programs, daily journal writing, and the kids complete a daily project. They have ample outside time, music, art, science, computer, and the list goes on and on. She communicates extremely well with the parents. She is very honest and trust worthy. We give Amber an A+ and would highly recommend this place for your little one.

Amber always genuinely has the best needs of the children at heart. She was always very communicative with us, and was continually working to ensure our child had the best possible experience. She is truly dedicated and hard working and loves what she does. We couldn't be happier with our experience with her.
Amber made daycare seem like a non-daycare experience. It was fun, caring and learning for the kids. Amber also taught manners, tolerance for others and sharing. I was at the park with daughter and she saw two girls fighting over a toy and she looked at me and said "they need to go to Amber's and talk about sharing". She made the learning experience fun for the kids. My daughter would come home every night and talk about what she had learned and teach the rest of the family sign language.
Amber gives the personal touch with the kids, not only the fun side of it, but the learning side. She fully prepares them for kindergarten. both academically and appropriate classroom behavior.
Lil Angels Learning Center and Amber have been a part of our family for 8 years. The quality of care has made all the difference in the lives of our children, and is unmatched by any public daycare center or private care around. She has taken our son’s hearing loss and turned it into an opportunity for all the children to learn some sign language, while helping him. Amber encouraged our daughter to do what she loves- help others, and is going that extra mile with our youngest in preparing her for kindergarten. Lil Angels Learning Center and Amber have loved and cared for my children as their own. Amber is a part of our family, and has (and will always have) a place in our hearts.
