Rich and Jennifer Spinks, owners of GiggleBugs Early Learning Center, have over 20 years of experience in the early care and education industry.  Married in 2000 and parents to three children, Jennifer was born and raised in Dagsboro, Delaware and graduated from Indian River High School and Salisbury University.  Rich is a native of Bunker Hill, West Virginia whose background is in Business Finance.  Together this dynamic duo have built, owned, and operated 3 early learning centers in West Virginia, and now they have constructed an 8,000 square foot early learning center in Millsboro, Delaware to serve the families of Sussex County.  "This is our passion and what we believe we were put on this earth to do!  We want to take the talents that have been given to us and use them to change the world one child and one family at a time." 

"While we try to teach children all

   about life, children teach us

   what life is all about..."


   "GiggleBugs is an excellent and loving environment for kids. Our family started

   with GiggleBugs when it first opened.  It was a huge blessing for this area!! 

   I feel so welcome when I walk through the doors (Rich knows everyone's

   name, from the kids to the parents) and the staff is amazing!  They know

   exactly how to grab each child's attention to keep them happy when Mom or

   Dad departs and are so excited to see each face as they walk into the room. 

   Once we drop off our son, I don't have to worry because I know he is in 

   good hands. I know he is safe and is having a great day with his classmates

   and staff, he is receiving a proper nutrition for breakfast and lunch, and there

   is a weekly newsletter of what's going on within GiggleBugs.  I'm also    

   impressed with how much he has learned in such short period of time.  I 

   can't thank God enough for such a wonderful place to take our son and 

   future children!  We are so happy with GiggleBugs and highly recommend it

   to anyone!" ~Gerri, Mom of Grady (1 year old)

   "This center is exactly what we were looking for as we searched for a place

   for our children to go while we were at work.  My husband and I are both

   educators, and we were searching for a place where our boys could go and

   prepare them for Kindergarten while still fostering the "little boy" in them and

   allowing them to play, run, and be crazy! The staff there is AMAZING...they

   know each of my kids' names and make a point to make each of them feel

   like the most important kid in the center!  The staff is readily available to

   discuss concerns/questions and I always feel like they have the children's 

   best interests in mind when making decisions.  We believe we've hit the 

   jackpot in early childhood development centers! Jen and Rich have really

   created a great environment for children and their families.  I never question

   if my kids are being taken care of.  I highly recommend this facility to anyone

   looking for a quality place to send their precious babies"

   ~Stephanie, Mom of Joseph (4 years) & Jacob (2 years)

   "Both of our kids go to GiggleBugs and if I could give them more than 5 stars

   I absolutely would! They take the time to get to know the children as well as

   the parents, and they treat you like family both the owners and the teachers.

   Our son goes there full time and our daughter goes there full time in the

   summer and after school during the school year.  They plan multiple trips

   throughout the summer which our daughter LOVES!  They also take the

   younger ones on smaller trips to the library, swimming at the YMCA, and

   the pumpkin patch trip which is always fun.  The center is super clean and

   smells fresh unlike other centers I have been in, and they even provide

   morning and afternoon meals and snacks prepared right at the center!

   GiggleBugs is exactly what our town needed, and I am so very happy that

   our kids have the pleasure to attend.
