The Journey to Kindergarten Starts Now! Schedule a Visit >

My family loves Peanut Gallery. When beginning our daycare search years ago, they were highly recommended by several friends and coworkers, but I saw it as a sign that two high school students told me that they were excited to go back to visit their daycare teachers… at Branch Hollow Peanut Gallery! They have taken care of my children for years and have helped them prepare them for school, and also for so much more. They love going, and I love that they get hands-on experiences for learning. Each classroom that they have grown into has been challenging and rewarding for them. The teachers, who have been there for years, value them and guide them both academically and emotionally. Our children have formed relationships there that I know will last a lifetime. Five stars isn’t enough.

The Peanut Gallery school is awesome I would recommend this school to anyone. I have know Karen the director for about 15 years she is the most loveable person I know. Having my 1st child 5 years ago I knew Peanut Gallery was the right place for my son. The loving and nurturing staff made it easy to drop off my son each and every day. I just love the Peanut Gallery!!!

My kids have been going to the Peanut Gallery for 3 or 4 years now. We absolutely love it! The staff is wonderful, the management is amazing and my boys are always excited to be there. The teachers welcome them and send them home with open arms & big hugs everyday. The summer camp activities are always something they look forward to attending as well. I’m grateful to say that my children are able to enjoy this place just like I did when I was a kid!

I absolutely love this school. The love and care that go into taking care of my children is just amazing. I could never have imagined that being a mother, I would be so comfortable with others taking care of my children. But when my little girls walk into school, the run to their teachers, and you can tell they truly love being there. I just love this place!

I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate your staff at Branch Hollow. The struggle to leave my daughter Emily, and return to work after maternity leave was a tough decision and what my family needed to survive. Each morning the decision was made easier as I found my child thriving in the care of the nursery staff. She was a happy and healthy baby that grew into a toddler quickly.

As Emily moved through the class ages at the day care, she was challenged by learning, friendships and invaluable discipline to get along with others. The teachers do an excellent job of communicating with me about her day. I feel they are partnering with me in preparing my child for each step of her future.

Emily enjoys teaching my husband and I all the new songs she is learning. She loves to do art work, count in Spanish, and tell tales about her day.

The extra time and care that Karen Merolla and her staff take to know each child is evident in the atmosphere of the center and the joy of the child. The Branch Hollow Peanut Gallery has been an answer to my prayers. Well done Karen and staff.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to say how much my children, as well as my husband and I, love Peanut Gallery on Branch Hollow in Carrollton. They practically grew up there, my son since he was 1 and my daughter since she was 8 weeks old, thus feeling at home every time they go back. Even though they are at home with me during our summer breaks, they constantly ask me to take them there because they do not want to miss out on the fun. The fact that the same teachers have been there since way before they have been attending, gives me a piece of mind because I know they are in good hands and everyone knows and loves them. It is our home away from home, and we are grateful!
