We enrolled our daughter in this school because we recently moved to the area. She had attended another day care in Rhode Island & the teachers here helped make her transition an easy one. The teacher-student ratio is low & they separate the toddlers into 3 smaller groups based on age. Each toddler group has its own separate classroom (so there are not 18 toddlers running around the same room!) in which they can work on age appropriate skills. Our daughter often comes home singing songs & talking about whatever curriculum concept they are learning (weather, shapes etc) They offer parent/child activities (Christmas, Valentine's Day, conferences etc). Each child comes home with a paper that tells about their day & each week we receive a weekly newsletter from the teacher. Their rates are very reasonable. The building itself is older and not great to look at but I like that each age group has is own SEPARATE space within the building. The daycare is located in the back of an industrial building so their outdoor playground does not have grass. But if you were to look past the first appearances, they really do run an excellent child care program.
Kids Play is AMAZING!! They have taken such good care of my 16 month old and made me feel so secure with leaving her for the first time! I couldn't ask for better. Miss Peggy, Sue, Dee Dee, Maria, Sandy... They're all so sweet, caring and dedicated!!
As a new mom I was nervous about leaving my baby. However from the first moment I felt at ease. The staff at Dr Day Care are wonderful and my baby is THRIVING because of them!
