I don't know what is wrong with the parent that was unhappy with Learning Journey. I have a Master's Degree in Early Education and I can tell you Learning Journey is the best! I figure if the Illinois State Board of Education feels that Learning Journey is good enough to receive an Early Childhood Block Grant, they must be doing something right. I would be concerned if my child came home from daycare clean everyday. That would lead me to believe that the child is not learning through play and having a good time. I want my child to excel at school, not be institutionalized. I thought the pictures of the teachers in the hallway was a wonderful thing to make my child feel more comfortable. Did you make it past the front door??? If you did, then you would realize that every inch of wall space is covered in the children's art work. My child and I are welcomed everyday and they are very attentive to our needs. It seems to me the problem is not with Learning Journey rather the parent and the child. If your child has this much problem with seperation, I suggest you read a book on Parent/Child Separation such as Helping Your Child Overcome Separation Anxiety or School Refusal: A Step-by-Step Guide For Parents by Andrew R. Eisen. You may have been able to find this book in the Learning Journey's Lending Library for Parents. I am sure you are aware of the library. My husband and I made an unannounced visit and received a one hour orientation of Learning Journey and all of the wonderful things they offer. I am more than pleased with my daughter's care at Learning Journey. I couldn't ask for a better place to help my child develop and grow.

I think the hardest part of working full time with a child is when/where/who is going to care for my child? I have complete peace of mind dropping my son off at Learning Journey! He loves his teachers and the activities and his friends. The staff are so genuine and friendly. Best of all, I trust them with my child. And he is always so excited to return in the morning...makes me thankful for such a school!
I have been so pleased with what 123-ABC Academy has to offer my 5 year old daughter. She has developed her language and group skills so much more than at her preschool.
