I have had my child enrolled with Learning Adventures for 2 years. I am a parent that feels no one can care for their child like they can. We are college educated parents and still require two incomes for our family, so we need part time child care. We only need 3 days a week, due to mine and my spouse's alternate off days of work. We are quite picky, to the point that we did back ground checks ourselves on the owners and their care givers. We contacted DCS and DHS as well. I keep in constant contact with Rachel, Frank, Carrie, and the teachers. I spend approximately an hour at the facility each time I drop my child off. I interact with all the caregivers and children. I see what takes place and help out where and when I can. My education is in behavioral psychology and I see the constant reinforcement given from Rachel to the caregivers on how to positively interact with the children and redirect problematic behavior. The center even provided required training to its caregivers and free to the patents a positive parenting workshop. Mistakes happen, as long as they are corrected, don't continue, and aren't blatantly intentional I feel it is only human and acceptable. I know that once there was a child in with my child that was having an hard time with biting. I personally observed it several times and the child had bit my child in one instance. That child was temporarily dismissed and has returned once the patents had resolved the biting. I am sorry to be long winded, but hope this is helpful to anyone out there looking for good childcare.

Great experience (2 years), will be sending our second child there as well. We investigated multiple other facilities in the area prior to going with Ebenezer . The daycare is very clean, they have good policies for controlling illnesses, we've been pleased with the efficient response of management, and the teachers we have had have been wonderful with our child. I have never seen the code posted anywhere in the building, and multiple emails are sent out reminding parents to NEVER let anyone in without having them enter the code themselves (not even holding doors for other parents). I've even had a teacher question me when I picked my child up (we had not met before), to make sure that I was authorized to get him. The kids do all kinds of crafts and sign language learning, they have outside play every day (weather permitting), and I've seen no issues with the menu that they have for the kids (they do not allow any nut products).
I took a tour of Children At Play, to decide whether or not to enroll my 7 month old. The rooms were all spacious and very clean! The infants had the teacher's full attention as she talked to one and change another's diaper. I was thrilled to see that the older kids' rooms were brightly colored and the kids were being read to and some were watching an educational children's TV program. There were smiling faces on all of the children. The director was the nicest person that I had talked to in my experience that was daycare searching. I know that my daughter is going to love this daycare.
