My daughter has been at Harmony for almost 3 years (since she was 8 months old). We tried two other daycares prior to finding Harmony and we never felt at home until we started there. My daughter LOVES to go to school and misses everyone when the weekend comes. She has asked all of the teachers to come home with her and tells them daily that she loves them (and they say it back). Harmony has a wonderful staff, who care about the children there and their families. They are always coming up with great new ways to teach the kids. My daughter tested in levels way above her age and I believe it is due to the education she receives at Harmony. The staff even checked with me prior to Father's Day to see how they should handle the gifts they were making (my daughter doesn't have a father and they just switched it to Papa's Day for her). They use a wonderful color system (Green, Yellow, Red) for behavior and my daughter strives to be on green every day, it really motivates her to be well behaved. My daughter loves the food at lunch and tells us that the Mac n Cheese there is "the best ever". The daycare is clean, well managed, safe, fun, colorful, loving, educational and a great place for your child to grow at! I feel blessed that my daughter has had such a great start in life at Harmony! I will always believe that the best place for your child is at Harmony. ***Just a note on the one bad review you see below*** The writer is angry because she was asked to remove her child from Harmony for the safety of the other children. My daughter was biten by the writers child and she was scared to go back until he was removed. It wasn't a bite from playing and it was so bad that I even took pictures of the bite marks incase of futher problems. My daughter was not the only child that the writers child hurt and Harmony gave the family chances to fix the issue. As you can tell, her statement isn't valid considering none of the other children at Harmony have ever done this to another. If the conditions were so dangerous, she would have left prior to being asked to leave. She is a mom that can't admit her child might have some issues and instead of helping him, is trying to place blame where there is none. Thank you for reading my review :)
First of all, I would like to begin by saying that Harmony has a very high standard of quality of service they provide. My son was 7 months old when we removed him from a previous daycare and were desperately looking for a good daycare, one where my husband and I would feel welcome, our son would be well taken care of and where we would feel like our opinion mattered. We were SO LUCKY to have found Harmony. My husband visited the center and met with the owner. She was able to answer all our questions, no matter how many questions we asked. My husband was so excited and happy when he called me to tell me that he had found a perfect place for our son. Our son spent 4 years at Harmony. He has thoroughly enjoyed himself and we have cherished every moment of all the things he has learnt at Harmony. The teachers are very well trained. They are very loving, will listen to parents if the parents have any concerns, are extremely organized, take personal interest in the growth of the child, do fun activities with the kids, take them on field trips etc. The best part about this day care center is that communication is very open, whether it's the teachers or the owner. They are always available to hear the parent's questions and opinions. Our son would be so excited to get to Harmony every day and we could hardly wait to hear about all his daily activities at the end of the day. Whatever was mentioned in the weekly calendar was covered in the respective classroom. If there had to be any changes, parents were promptly informed. We are vegetarians and on request, the owner was kind enough to add an extra vegetarian item on the menu. Our son always had positive things to say about his day. Harmony has contributed in building a strong foundation for our son and we would highly recommend Harmony to anyone.
We had our son in another daycare and were not happy about the educational piece of that program. We heard of Discovery through word of mouth, and decided to check it out. Meeting with Loretta and seeing the interactions of the teachers and children, there was not a second thought to moving Dylan to Discovery. Loretta is a burst of energy, and the personal attention to every child is truly amazing. Dylan stayed for Kindergarten at Discovery and it paid off, he was more than well prepared when entering the public schools from both academics and emotional/social development. Mrs. Rochelle keeps in close contact with parents to ensure your child is on the right path and you can feel that personal connection with the children, and the effort to help the children to become ready for the next stage of education. We take Dylan back to Discovery when he has half days and breaks from 1st grade, as well as during the summer time. When we had our second child, we couldn’t wait to move him to Discovery when he met the age requirement. It was amazing to see the difference with Nolan’s personality in the first weeks and months at Discovery. He just blossomed. Nolan started saying more words, interacting with his brother in a more positive manner, singing songs, reciting colors, numbers and the alphabet. Discovery is truly a mother’s dream. I never once had apprehension leaving my children at Discovery. I would trust all of the teachers/caregivers to come into my home and babysit. My son Nolan is attached to Loretta “Ra Ra” as he calls her, and the loving bond between Nolan and Ms. Jasmine is genuine and great to see In short, I would strongly recommend Discovery Corner to any family, you will not be disappointed!
