I have only had a great experience so far!!!! My husband, two girls, & I toured the Cleveland daycare and met with the owner, Jim. This is my first time leaving my children at a daycare or with someone I do not know. During our tour of the toddler room, we saw the children interacting very well with each other and the staff. The staff made a point to come and meet all 4 of us and made us feel very welcome. During our time there, one staff member yelled, "group hug!" and all of the kids ran and they all hugged each other. Overall, this is exactly what I need for my two-year-old...learning how to get along with and play well with other children and adults too. Additionally, we toured the infant room. The staff there were very sweet and accommodating...asking us what we would our 1 yr old likes to eat, what her nap schedule should be, and any specifics that we would like them to follow regarding her care. I expressed my concern that my 1 yr old is very shy and has separation anxiety. We continued to tour the infant areas and left our 1 yr old to play with the other infants. She was stimulated by the other kids, the staff, and the fun environment -and didn't realize that we had left the room. Talk about making me feel AT EASE! We met with Jim at the end of the tour and he asked us if we have any questions or concerns or if there is anything he can do to make us feel as comfortable as possible with our girls being at his daycare. Overall, I'm thrilled that both of my children are attending this daycare and feel very blessed by the staff that are caring for them. This is a no-brainer that this is THE second home for my kids.

Although we have lived in the area for over 15 years and driven by it numerous times, we just discovered Children's Discovery a year ago. We have two older children that attended other "commercial" type of day care. But when we found ourselves looking for a place for our third child to go, we wanted a place close to home and the schools the older siblings attend, so we decided to check out Children's Discoveries and I am so glad we did! Children Discoveries is unlike any other centers I have visited... it truly is an educational atmosphere while still being fun and entertaining for the kids. My daughter is farther advanced and learning things at 4 yrs old that my other children began learning in kindergarten. I am confident that our daughter will be more than ready when it comes time to start school. The staff are warm and inviting and they know everyone. It is one big family. They are attentive to each child and give them the attention they need. I feel comfortable and safe when I drop my child off each day and my daughter is actually sad when Friday's come, because she loves it that much! I'm glad we discovered Children's Discovery!
Both my children went to Children's Discovery Academy. They started as infants and attended through the private Kindergarten. Looking back, I realize what a wonderful gift this has been to my family. Both my children entered elementary school with wonderful self esteems . They were confident in their academics as well as their social skills. Their math and reading skills were far and away above other children their age. The early exposure to Spanish and sign language made learning other languages easier too. As a family, we were blessed with the security of knowing our children were in a safe and happy environment with staff they knew and loved. My children are 7 years apart and they were blessed with many of the same teachers which we loved. Long term professional staff made our jobs as parents so much easier. I would highly recommend Children's Discovery Academy to all families. It was an investment that has paid for us time and time again.
