I provide loving, nurturing care in my private Garwood home. As a NJ State registered Family Child Care provider I care for children 6 weeks to 36 months. For 20 years I have provided children with a comfortable, fun "home away from home". I believe children flourish in a loving, positive, stimulating environment. I strive to build your child's self-esteem and self-confidence by providing him with a nurturing environment where he feels loved, respected and safe. By responding with warm and caring attention to each child's specific needs, your child will gain the confidence she needs to feel good about herself and to love and respect one another.

I am dedicated to developing in each child a lifelong love of learning by providing developmentally appropriate activities that stimulate her natural desire to explore, create and learn. Through creative play, reading, music, arts & crafts and outdoor play my program focuses on promoting social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. We do not watch TV. Excellent references are available. I look forward to hearing from you.

Customer Testimonials

Kelley Molinaro has been taking care of my son since he was 3 months old. I feel very comfortable dropping him off each day as I know he is well taken care of. Kelley provides a safe, fun, educational, and most importantly loving environment for the children who come to her home. My son is happy and excited to arrive each day and see Kelley and the other kids. I believe that he has learned wonderful social skills and is growing into a healthy, happy boy.


I very highly recommend Kelley's Kids Day Care. Kelley has been my full-time day care provider for the past 3.5 years (across 2 children starting as young as 12 weeks). I have found the environment at Kelley's to be that ideal balance of individual attention and socialization for my children in their early months and years. The children adore Kelley because she is very warm, nurturing, and energetic. In addition to these qualities, I adore Kelley because she is professional, reliable, and has the expertise to develop my children physically and emotionally. Kelley is an amazing resource for parents balancing work and family.


I highly recommend Kelley's Kids Day Care. Kelley has provided a warm, nurturing environment for my daughter to grow and learn in over the past 2.5 years. She is exceptional with infants and has also been instrumental in developing my daughter into a well adjusted toddler. Kelley cares for each child as if they were a member of her own family which is the greatest comfort for parents working outside the home.


Kelley has been an excellent child care provider for our daughter for the past 2 years. From when our daughter was an infant, Kelley provided a safe, warm and nurturing atmosphere. It was so comforting to know that our daughter was in a fun and educational home environment for these years, rather than being overwhelmed in a school setting with many other kids. Kelley helped create structure in our daughter’s day, with a consistent nap and eating schedule, along with outside play time almost every day (dependent on weather). The small group of children at Kelley’s house helped our daughter learn socializing skills, discipline, sharing, etc. Our daughter also established friendships that are still continuing to this day. Kelley truly cares about the children she watches, and she is such a helpful extension of each child’s parents. Kelley wants the children to thrive and helps teach them so much. She played a major role in teaching our daughter manners, proper eating habits and use of utensils, appropriate behavior, among many other things. We loved receiving the arts and crafts projects our daughter made, and hearing the new songs and stories Kelley would teach them. Kelley also provided useful health advice/information, in addition to providing nutritious snacks and meals for the children every day. She was also instrumental in helping to prepare our daughter for her next step in a school setting. We were extremely happy with Kelley and would recommend her daycare service to anyone!
