Marcus’ Story



Leaving our son in the care of others was much harder than we could have ever imagined. But we are thrilled that we found Bundle of Joy!  Before stumbling upon Bundle of Joy, we had visited at least fifteen different daycare homes and centers.  After each visit we left with the feeling “we can’t leave our baby here”.  And then friends told us about Bundle of Joy.  After our visit with Monet, we left feeling like finally we had found a good fit for us and our son.  What a HUGE relief!  Unfortunately though, the opening they had fell through and we were put on a waiting list.  We went through two different and unsatisfactory daycare placements before we got the call from Bell.  They had an opening in their NE Portland center and it was ours if we wanted it.  We were thrilled to say the least!


Our son, Marcus, has been with Bundle of Joy now for eight months and he is happy and thriving!  He walks in every morning excited for the day and enters like it’s his own home.  We love the home setting and the staff are wonderful – experienced, caring, nurturing, communicative and clearly love what they do.  The center is clean, bright and engaging.  And Marcus loves all of the friends he’s made there.  Bundle of Joy staff have helped us through sleeping challenges and have been great at answering all of our “new parent” questions, giving us suggestions for things to try at home when we have been at a loss.  When we have experienced challenges, they have worked through them with professionalism and open communication.


We are so thrilled to have found such a wonderful daycare setting for our son!  It is hard being a two-working parent family, but knowing that our son is in such good hands when we leave him every day makes a world of difference.  Thank you Bundle of Joy!
