“I have known Hollee Saville for approximately five years. I first met her at a day care center where my children attended.  She was involved in the care of them in both the preschool and the infant/toddler rooms.  Hollee always showed affection and a lot of positive energy when dealing the children.  Hollee eventually opened a day care of her own and we decided to have her care for our children again in her beautiful home setting.  Even though our kids are of school age now and no longer attend Hollee’s center, my kids love to go back and visit Hollee and her family.   Hollee has always had a loving relationship with my kids.  She has a passion for children and their education.”

“Hollee is the most loving, patient, caring, nurturing person a parent could ever want for their child when they are at work or unable to be with their child. Hollee uses love, understanding, positive reinforcement and redirection as discipline.  Hollee is so involved with her childcare business that she is always looking for ways to improve her childcare; new ideas, new toys, new activities, books, training, etc.   Hollee is not just some stay at home mom looking to earn an easy dollar, in which childcare is definitely not an easy dollar, contrary to what some people think.   Hollee is always improving herself by attending training and learning what she can about children and childcare.   Hollee goes way above and beyond the minimal hourly training requirements.  Hollee’s daycare set up is every provider’s dream.   It is very colorful and cheery.   It allows for learning, playing, resting, etc.   Basically, any child would want to be in her childcare.  Hollee is very involved with the Wright County Family Child Care Association.   Hollee is the President and the Training Coordinator for the association.   Hollee wants what is best for children and is helping other providers to get the training that they need so they can be better providers.”

“Hollee is dedicated to the well-being of children.  She works very hard and has gone above and beyond many providers with her level of professionalism, training, environment and philosophies.  She has phenomenal energy and focus on high-quality care not only for the children she cares for but also to enable other providers to provide the highest quality care possible.”
.: Fellow provider & parent :.

“I am writing you this letter to tell you what I know about Hollee Saville.  Hollee Saville is a highly respected childcare provider in St. Michael and Wright County.  Hollee has years of experience in working with children and always demonstrates a professional, positive attitude.  Hollee consistently shows how much she loves working with children, she is truly one of the few great providers.  If I had kids in daycare, I would not hesitate bringing my child to her.”
