The Drop Zone is one of many reasons why Simply Liz Love was able to evolve. Finding reliable childcare force so many women to divorce their wildest dreams. When my husband deployed for nine months, I balanced my son and taking care of my father-in-law. He was recovering from a massive stroke that made him paralyzed on one side. What was once easy to do, became a tangled web of intricately aligned tasks. I knew no one in the city & had no family within a 250 mile radius. When I stumbled pass The Drop Zone, I didn’t expect God to bless me with family. I found a place that made my son cry thug tears from leaving all because he felt so happy & safe. I would highly recommend The Drop Zone!

My boys are 1.5 and 2.5 years old. I'm a stay at home momma and am always with my kids. The only friend/babysitter I had here recently moved away and I needed someone to watch my babies so I could go to doctor's appointments. I've taken them twice to the drop zone and this last time my oldest was crying because he didn't want to leave. He told me to go and pointed at the door. They love it there. I was so nervous to leave them anywhere, but they love the staff and I love that they love them.

We just recently moved here and my husband is currently deployed so it’s just me and my girls! Other than family only my oldest has ever been to daycare and I’m extremely picky about who I trust. My girls have now been to The Drop Zone 3 times and they both love it! They never want to leave. My youngest is a handful plus some and all of the staff is patient with her and work well with her which is a job in itself so I am extremely thankful for The Drop Zone and would recommend them to anyone!!
