I can't believe this place got a negative review! Like that person said, I do see some young students working here. But they are always professional. Plus, when you hire a sitter you get young kids! The person who cooks always makes healthful balanced meals. They are really helpful if you are vegetarian - which a lot of places won't do. You see, the state requires a certain amount of nutrition contents in the meal, and the easiest way to do that is meat. But they often provide the more expensive vege options, as part of their service. I was impressed at how in control the teachers are, they always seem to get the kids down for naps, and I love how happy my child is to go here. The older kids can do homework during the school year, and then play video games, play outside, help out, do anything constructive really. One parent complained that the big kids were using XBox, but I thought they should just be happy the day care actually helped the kids to homework first. Plus not all place even have nice XBox type toys.
Like the best of all families, this staff works together and deals with new and exciting situations all the time. I love going here, and seeing all the happy kids and smiling faces. Even when someone gets hurt, which happens to kids, the staff are able to accommodate it. Some parents don't like the fact that every second of the day isn't ruled under a perfect schedule. Because even though they have a great schedule, sometimes kids get wild. I've known this staff to handle it perfectly, and the kids always end up learning, playing, and loving it. Even those wild kids (parents, you may not know your kid is a nightmare) which I have. They handle them well, without squashing their inteligence and creativity like some of those "we stick to the minute by minute schedule or else" places. I loved this place until I had to move.
My kids loved the field trips! They did things like going to the pumpkin patch, playing out doors, swimming, berry farm, and even more. The amazing thing is that even the little and big kids get to go on trips. What a wonderful learning experience.
