Silver Spoons take pride in the quality care that it provides to neighboring communities. With 11 years of existence, the daycare has promoted accelerated learning, safe environment, and plentiful meaningful experiences for children. The directors, Mrs. Edmondson and Dr. Brujan, have a combined 21 years of early childhood experience. Expertise of such kind is a sure indicator that children are learning, protected, and most of all, having fun every day in school. It is critical to instill love and compassion to children at their most delicate young age…. And that starts at home and preserved at Silver Spoons! Upon enrolling in Silver Spoons, parents are given a set of parent responsibilities and student rules to remain enrolled in the day care. This system is in place to promote effectiveness and transparency. Among several points of interests, Silver Spoons makes a great effort to prevent bullying in all its forms (i.e., social, verbal, and physical). The New York State Department of Mental Hygiene and Child Protective Services has recognized the daycare for addressing bullying and protecting children from 2010 – 2012. The daycare’s focus on bullying is because 1 in 7 students in Grades K – 12 is either a bully or a bully victim (National Statistics for Bullying Children in Schools, 2012). And though bullying is an international problem, New York ranks as one of the five worst states for bullying (Bullying Statistics, Cyber-bullying Statistics, School Bullying Statistics, 2009). Allowing bullying or intimidation is detrimental and traumatic for any child, at any age, for any reason. Therefore, Silver Spoons will not tolerate, protect, nor harbor children or families that have difficulty cooperating with others. It is well staffed with trained individuals who love and protect children. It has daily records and anecdotes geared to red flag inappropriate behaviors from parents and their children. Interventions are immediately put in place to address the misconduct. However, some failed attempts are due to bullies and their parents claiming that they are the victims. Unfounded claims and unsuccessful interventions result in the removal of the child and best wishes to their next school. Schools and daycares are often found in these dilemmas but it is critical to focus on truths and supported evidence. The ultimate priority is the safety of all children. We invite and encourage anyone who would like to become part of the Silver Spoons family. We can be contacted at 718.543.5373 and/or at firstname.lastname@example.org We also welcome inquiries from daycares and parents who struggle with their children being bullied. We can suggest strategies and interventions that might make their child’s school experience more fruitful. Best, Silver Spoons Management
My child is currently attending the Children's Learning Company. I couldn't be more satisfied. When I first placed my child, at age 2 with CLC, she wasn't potty trained. While she could talk, she often preferred to point or signal instead of speaking. As an only child, she was still learning only the very basic socialization at home. Within one school year (10 months) she became very articulate, potty trained and social. She learned to count, her ABC's , and shapes. She's now 3 1/2. She writes her name, she can do basic adding and subtracting and she has roughly an hour of homework (which she loves!) a day. She'll be learning to read this coming school year and more advanced adding and subtracting. The instructors at CLC are excellent. They take great personal pride in their teaching and the accomplishments of their students. They are gentle and understanding but no push-overs. The head of the school (and it is a school, not a day-care) is Ms. Norma. She is constantly updating the curriculum for improvements and new technology. Ms. Norma is also very involved with the students on a daily basis and has classes with the older group. She is available most mornings and evenings to consult with parents and answer any concerns or inform a parent of their child's recent accomplishments. However, her involvement doesn't stop with her school. Ms. Norma works with parents to help place their children in charter and private schools after they leave her care. Overall, the staff and facility owner excel at teaching both academics and social graces. I would highly recommend the Children's Learning Company to any parent.
We love The Children's Learning Company. I can't understand parents that don't want to be involved in the caring and teaching of their child. I have only experienced greatness at the program that has care and taught my son so much. I have volunteered and spent many hours with the teachers and the Director during parties and school trips; organization has never been a problem in any event, trips are thoughtfully put together as well as creative. Monthly calendars are given to parents about the events and activities so as a parent you are always involved. Teachers care and nurture even during their hour of lunch just to ensure that the children are happy. They spoon feed, change diapers, love them when they're sad and crying, sit on the floor to play with them. I have seen these teachers in action and I can only say AMAZING WORK! Not everyone can do what these ladies do. Addressing the parent that discussed how the school trip were disorganized so untrue. Chaperoning is just that help to supervise adding extra eyes and ears to the group. Perhaps you are the parent that shows up late to school trips departures, break school policies ( there are not many at all) and expect different treatment from the rest of us. Then this is not the program for you and your child. I just want to say that the school is respectful of all parent and do apply the policies across the board to everyone. Keep up the great work teachers. Thank you for everything you do on behalf of myself and all parents.
Stop looking! You will get great service and tranquility while at work. I am a busy mom and my husband works evenings trying to find a place that will work with us and still provide quality care for my daughter was difficult but CLC was a blessing. My daughter loves her school, she eats better and she naps now so she isn't as cranky when we pick her up, she shares now, she was potty trained, they even taught her how to color, identify and spell her name, she 2 1/2. I am so busy I cant always do the homework but I know that they take the time to give us take home work so I can see and participate in what she is learning new at school. I appreciate that they keep us involved and connected with her daily activities no other place really does that . I should know my son was in day care and his program made me feel guilty that I couldn't pick him up earlier or participate as much. I decided to find a place that would work with me not against me. Children's Learning Company is a blessing to parents that need to feel comfortable about leaving their children because we have to work. I want to make sure that the program offers a well rounded child development program and a nurturing environment. Thank you Ms. Norma and staff job well done!
I am a first grade teacher for the Department of Education and my daughter attends Silver Spoons daycare. As a mom, I used to worry about all the things that I have to teach my child. Kindergarten is not what is used to be. But at Silver Spoons I don’t have to worry anymore. Many of the strategies and standards that I have learned in my career are implemented at Silver Spoons. It is an incredible relief to know that I can team up with Mrs. Edmondson and help my child improve her speech and learn the fundamentals… and I do not mean ABC’s and coloring. I mean actual reading, arts and crafts, plays, science, and about the community. My daughter is really learning at Silver Spoons. She receives instruction that is geared to her development and age appropriate homework that makes her feel successful. They even have parent teacher conferences to help set academic goals for all the children. It has been such a great experience that I wish I had known about Silver Spoons when I was enrolling my 6 year old son in day care years ago. Ultimately, I did a great thing for my daughter enrolling her at Silver Spoons.
Good day to everyone! Hi my name is Evelyn Pula and I am the owner of Tip E Toes daycare. I choose to write this review to clarify to the public about a review I just read about my business. FIrst and for most I have never ever in history left children playing the the front porch alone as it not only sounds ridiculous but completely untrue. We here at Tip e Toes daycare seldom ever play in our porch as it is not aloud by the land lord. I may personally be out with one or two children waiting for a parent. There must be a personal vendetta toward myself and I feel that review was written in those intentions. I challenge the writer of the review to please speak to me and tell me why such thing have been said. Lastly safety of the children is our main concern and everyone who knows our work can tell you we have never had and injury, lost child, mistreated child or any of that sort. Thank you for listening. Please me at 646-875-7887 with any questions regarding child care
I have been sending my child here for over 2 years now. It's really an excellent place for children. The staff are very warm and caring . The daycare is also very well managed by the two directors who are actually sisters. I feel very confident that my child is being well looked after here. The daycare is clean and well run. The out door playground is great. My child gets enough exercise everyday. The curriculum is stimulating and the teachers really connect with the kids. The child to teacher ration is 4 to 1. The directors are always present so is actually better than this. One more thing I love about this place, and that there is a cook on site. She makes all home cooked meals and is also included in the weekly fee. So I don't have to worry about preparing lunch for my child everyday. I highly recommend silvers spoons daycare. Thank you Ms. Brujan and Mrs. Edmondson for all your hard work.

Escribo en español porque la mayoria de las familias servidas por Sunny Daycare son hispana. La Señora Kimberly miente y solo desea hacer daño a uno de los mejores Daycares en el area de El Bronx. Femiliares mios han tenido niños sobrinos mios han estado en Sunny Daycare y estan encantados con los servicios, cuidados y atenciones que reciben y han recibido en Sunny Day care. Ella dice que es madre por primera vez y creo que difama de ese maravilloso Daycare por que es una inexperta como madre. Les digo a todas las madres de El bronx que pongan sus hijos en Sunny Daycare para que pasen el dia en sus trabajos sin preocupaciones. Sunny Daycare es lo mejor para el desarroyo y cuidadado de su niño. Lastima que existan en el mundo personas como esa señora Kimberly que solo hace daño a lo que es bueno. Su hijo tal vez tenia el viruz de la gripe.
My Sweet Dream Day Care is a place I first came across through Google. After the failure of one day care, I was a little skeptical on sending my child to another. Sending my child to Sweet Dream wasn't easy at first for either my child or myself. My daughter naturally crying,and me praying that it works out. Mama and Aleyda's determination to embrace my daughter has made Sweet Dream and extended family for us. Mama's motherly instincts and years of experience naturally exudes towards the children. Not to talk of Aleyda who is wonderful at teaching the children. The name says it all. My Sweet Dream is a savior and blessing. I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you! See you guys tomorrow.
