Due to the move we have to switch our daycare that we grew to love so much. The least I can do is to leave a review so maybe some other kiddos will get so lucky to be a part of it. One of the least expensive daycares in Pasadena (Prices in 2017: $375-$895) Trust me, I've looked. It's "one of the best kept secrets" in the area - very few people know about it, so it is pretty much recommendation based. A PONY, 3 GOATS, a BUNNY and a DUCK! It's like a little farm! Children can feed and pet the animals and on occasions even ride a pony (with a helmet on, of course lol)BIG PLAYGROUNDSpacious and Green backyard with swings, slides, scooters, cars, tricycles and trees. It is located on a very quite little street in Altadena. TEACHERSHere is a little story. My daughter got expelled from the fancy and way more expensive Montessori San Marino pre-school at age of 2y8mo. I was told i needed to hire an additional person to shadow her while she is in the daycare! What?! What am I paying you for? In Children's Country House never have I ever heard teachers complain about her behavior. And I know she requires a lot of attention. Maybe a little more than others. Teachers just did their job. In 8 months of being in Montessori San Marino she learned 2 words: "look" and "bye". Only 1 week in Children's Country House - and my daughter was counting to 10! Her english has improved quickly and drastically. Teachers here speak clear english to children. They discuss with kids every little thing: whatever toy they bring in the morning, whatever patterns and colors they are wearing that day, whatever activity they choose to do while playing outside. The best part is that I feel like the teachers are genially interested in communicating with children. A good teacher is a calling from birth. And they are Very good. My daughter is always excited to go to her daycare and takes a long time to be ready to leave in the evenings. This worth more than a thousand words.
