In a desperate search to find a day care provider for my daughter, almost a year ago, I stumbled on Push My Swing quite accidentally. Rimonda met with me and I brought my daughter in so that they could meet each other.
I was so impressed with Rimonda and her staff. The day care room was not fancy, but it was clean and neat and organized and all of the children looked genuinely happy. Since attending Push My Swing, they have redecorated and I love the bright colors and wall art and new floors. The atmosphere is really warm and inviting. It's so great that they have a backyard to play in when the weather is nice.
My daughter's verbal communication skills have grown exponentially since she has attended Push My Swing. She comes home singing new songs and playing new finger games and even knows the ABC forward and backward - and she's only 2 years old. My daughter loves circle time and story time and she loves to play with the toys and puzzles. She loves the other children in her class. The other parents are also very warm and wonderful and I truly believe that it is because Rimonda sets a high standard when selecting applicants. I also realized that when a child has special needs, such as speech pathology, the therapists can come to the center to work with the child and I truly believe that the other children actually benefit from it. The staff is also very helpful in assisting me with continuity in potty training. They will encourage my daughter to go to the potty since I've started training her at home, and that is such a great benefit as it is such a challenge to potty train effectively if you send a child to a daycare that will not help you along with it (and I know from my other friends with children who they are trying to train that this is a very common challenge).
The women who work with Rimonda are trained in first aid and they also constantly attend training seminars to stay up-to-date on the latest childcare methods.
Rimonda is extremely personable and she feels like family to me. My daughter truly adores her and the women who work with her. The staff at Push My Swing is so energetic and loving and affectionate and my daughter wakes up every morning asking for them and looking forward to going to day care.
It truly breaks my heart to see such hateful posts about people who have become such an important part of our lives. I am a single parent and I don't know what I would do without Rimonda and her staff. If you really want a loving and supportive environment for your child at a price that you can afford, this is the best place to be.
THANK YOU, RIMONDA!!!!! WE LOVE YOU!
