“My children haven’t been in daycare since they were younger, but due to a crazy schedule, I had to enroll my youngest two. I’m so glad that I did! The staff is amazing and treated my kids like their own family. The building is spacious and clean, and I was very pleased with the activity schedule year-round. My eight-year-old is so in love with her teacher that, if she sees her, she runs and jumps into her arms! That’s all the confirmation I need! I’ve referred several of my friends who share similar experiences!” – Meshia M.

Not Your Average Child Care Provider

We wanted to learn all about Little Learners University and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with co-owner, Tanika.

The first question we had for Tanika was what is it that sets Little Learners University apart from their competition in Tennessee. Here’s Tanika’s response:

“It is our one-on-one interaction. As owners, we are here working every day and have a very hands-on policy with the children. Our curriculum is second to none. We are one big family. We don’t want anyone to feel we are going through the motions blindly. We always make ourselves available to anyone who needs us.”

Tankia went on to add:

“We cannot do any of this without our amazing team! Team LLU is the glue that helps hold us together.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Little Learners University and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Tanika had to say:

“We are here to be partners and make wonderful little citizens for our county. We know how hard moving can be, and we partner with families to make sure every transition for the little one is as painless as possible.”

Building Success Through Customer Service

Tanika attributes Little Learners University’s strong online reputation to their commitment to customer service.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Little Learners University has gotten their name out there through word of mouth, social media and their website. Tanika added:

“Our parents do most of our footwork for us.”

There are so many child care providers out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Little Learners University has. Here’s Tanika’s expert advice for them:

“Be transparent, and continually communicate with parents. Take feedback, then address and understand the feedback. You must understand parents’ expectations. We seek feedback daily from parents. Every day, we do this so nothing can fall through the cracks.”


Congratulations to the team at Little Learners University for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Tanika, for taking the time to speak with us!

They are a family business that has been around and taking care of kids in the community for years. Renee told us that the consistency they offer is both unique and appreciated by the families that work with them. Most of their staff hasve been working with them for over a decade, which is incredibly unique in their field.

We asked Renee about the Tiny Treasures Nursery School business mission, and she said:

“Honestly, we’ve been here so long that we have second- and third- generation students. A lot of it is just parents whose children come here and love it and talk to other parents with children who are looking for care. We get recommended from families that have been here for a long time, so it’s not a lot of really going out there and pushing things.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Tiny Treasures Nursery School has managed to. We asked if Renee could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“The first thing you have to do is do really well at what you’re doing in your specific business. You want anyone who has any interaction with you and your business that had a positive experience to go out and tell people good things about you.”

Connecticut’s Top Rated Local® Child Care Providers Award Winner: Strong Start Early Care & Education

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Strong Start Early Care & Education is a two-time 2019 award winner in Connecticut!

If you’re looking for a child care provider in Trumbull that can inspire confidence in your little one and maximize their learning potential, look no further than Strong Start Early Care & Education.

Strong Start Early Care & Education has received dozens of reviews on four verified sites with an average rating of 4.88 stars, earning them a tremendous Rating Score™ of 98.80 and two 2019 Top Rated Local awards for being ranked among the top 100 businesses and the number one child care provider in all of Connecticut!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“We had the BEST experience at Strong Start! Our sweet little joined at age four, but we wish we found Strong Start when she was born! Marc, Christina and the entire staff are wonderful. The children are always engaged in learning, and the Reggio Emilia philosophy helped our daughter learn to begin thinking critically about problems found in whatever topic they were studying, and find collaborative ways to solve them! What better way to prepare her for her future? We can’t thank Strong Start enough for giving our family peace of mind and our daughter such a strong start!” – Dorian P.

Not Your Average Child Care Provider

We wanted to learn more about this two-time award winner and how they managed to build such an impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Marc Hoffman, Executive Director and owner of Strong Start Early Care & Education.

The first thing we wanted to know was what makes Strong Start Early Care & Education a one-of-a-kind child care provider in Connecticut. Marc told us that he and his team utilize the Reggio Emilia approach to child care, which requires a higher level of teaching and attention to detail. The curriculum at Strong Start allows children to explore subjects based on their own interests while encouraging curiosity and helping them find meaning in their lessons. And when you compare Strong Start to many of the child care franchises or large-scale schools, you’ll find that they are better able to tailor their lessons to each student.

At Strong Start Early Care and Education, they meet kids where they are, and their secret to success so far lies in hiring competent teachers who are held to high standards. In return, they support their teachers emotionally and physically.

Marc went on to add:

“Strong Start is a labor of love. The whole team consists of committed educators who are passionate about what they do.”

We also asked Marc what their mission is at Strong Start Early Care & Education and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s his response:

“Our goal is to provide the highest quality early childhood care and education.”

Building Success Through Word of Mouth and Organic Reviews

Marc attributes Strong Start Early Care & Education’s strong online reputation to their organic reviews. He told us that he doesn’t push his clients to write reviews, and that leads to more well-thought-out reviews.

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Strong Start Early Care & Education has gotten their name out there through social media, word of mouth and by working with Marketing360. They are also very involved in their community and participate in food drives and fundraisers.

Every business owner wants to build the kind of online reputation Strong Start Early Care & Education has. When we asked Marc what advice he has for those business owners, he said:

“Make a commitment to have the highest quality possible. For those in child care, invest in teachers and your facilities. Don’t skimp, and meet families where they are — parents are going to look very hard at the differences between options.”


Congratulations to the team at Strong Start Early Care & Education for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Marc, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Strong Start Early Care & Education in Trumbull. Visit their website today!

“Don’t rely on just a website. You have to be on a variety of social media sites. You have to be user friendly; you have to have a website that works with a phone; you want to have Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and all kinds of other things as well.
