My son was a little over 1 when I needed to put him in daycare fast. He dropped a heavy sippy cup on my mother's foot causing her to stay off her feet for awhile and I needed to find daycare or risk losing my job. Well my mom told me she saw Katerria in a park one day where she occasionally takes david and suggested that I try her out. I was skeptical at first, Im timid of strangers caring for my baby, like any parent, but I told myself to give her a call. I had nothing to lose and nowhere to take him. We visited that afternoon and Katerria took him in the next day. I just want to Thank the Lord God for Katerria! She is so patient, kind, loving and really really advances those kids quickly! She transformed my little troublesome spoiled child! And what I loved the most about her is that she teaches them about God. You can't beat that in schools now. I hate that I had to take him out because we moved out of state but I would take him back in a heartbeat if we lived closer. She is top notch and desires many awards. I recommend all babies and kids of all ages to attend New Found Babes especially if you want to educate your child. YOU WONT REGRET IT.

I enrolled my son at Near The Pier exactly one year ago. The experience with Near The Pier staff is nothing short of amazing. I was one of those parents who were overall skeptical about day care. I visited 7 other day care facilities before Near The Pier. I knew this was the place for my child the moment i walked through the door. The staff is friendly and professional. The premises are always clean. The environment cultivates learning and loving care. My son is currently enrolled in the toddler class. Ms. Kennedy and Ms. Victoria are great teachers and care providers. They not only teach the children educational fundamentals, but also life courtesy. My son uses “please”, “thank you”, “bless you” and other good mannered phrases on a regular basis; all good manners consistently embedded by his teachers. The teachers and care providers at Near The Pier treat the children as if they were their own. The live video stream is another great perk; check in on your child while you are at school or work. I can go on and on… I give Near The Pier 5 stars!
We've been at Village for 6 years and have enjoyed our experience. We have one child who loved and completed the program and another child currently in preschool. Village is priced competitively and has an aggressive curriculum. They even offer "parents night out" once a month for an additional fee that's a lot cheaper than hiring a babysitter. Our 3 yo child absolutely loves attending school. He can write his name/numbers/letters, count to 50+, speak Spanish, tell us about the different flags, planets and all kinds of other fun things. Oftentimes, others are impressed with his knowledge and we always say "it's thanks to his school!". His teachers are enthusiastic in providing feedback and our child is just as excited about telling us his accomplishments. Overall, Village tries to be transparent, accommodating as possible and create a community for everyone that attends. No daycare experience is perfect, but Village provides everything we need: caring teachers who help feed into a happy, thriving child.
We pass up at least seven other daycares, through three neighborhoods, to bring our son to Serendipity Family Center everyday. It is worth the time and effort because of the service that we receive. Our son is well-cared for, loved, and respected by every member of the staff. He has been in Serendipity's care since he was four months old, and before he turned two he could recite the alphabet and count to twenty in both English and Spanish. Everyday he sings us a new song or tells us a new story that he learned in school that day. We are pleased that a warm, friendly face greets us at the door each morning when we drop him off. He is so excited, too, that he runs up to the door to get inside to the fun. As first-time parents we were especially mindful about who we chose to be our childcare providers. The Serendipity Family Center has been the best choice we ever could have made.
My 3 children have been attending Northstar going on 2 1/2 years. My youngest has been in 3 classrooms since she started attending and she loves it as well as my other children. Every teacher has been very professional and all are very knowledgeable. They really love the children and do whatever means necessary tor make sure all the children are treated equally with lots of love and affection. My daughter has learned lots of Spanish, all her numbers, letters, and how to treat her friends nicely. The director Alondra and Nancy have done whatever possible to accommodate my situation and or difficultitities which I've always admired. A business is not a business if they do not know how to handle the problems that arise and this center does it with dignity and respect. I'm grateful for this Center and the staff! Wonderful amazing place to bring your children too!!!!
Noble1 I'm confused after reading your review. If your child was having health issues the day before, why would you as a caring parent leave your child with anyone. Isn't it your responsibility as a loving mother to at least stay home with your child the following day after his episodes to make sure his health issues were under control? I don't know what kind of conversation you and the owner had, but if I was her, I would have not received your child the following day if I had known your baby had a health scare the day before. I would have asked you to take your baby with you and bring him back after the 2nd day of him having no health episode. My child attends this school and I feel that this school Wonderful learning environment for the children and a great asset to the community. Hopefully, you found your child a place to go.
We have had our daughter at ITAV for 3 years now. It's been a great place. At first the adjustment is hard because babies tent to get sick but over a few weeks and months it gets better and they get immuned. We also use the teachers as our baby sitters. Ms Haley and ms Hope have been great baby sitters for us. The school has a very good curriculum and we've been pleased with our child's progress. She can write her name and numbers till 30. She is pretty good with shapes and addition as well. Her teacher ms Courtney also send homework every other week which really helps me keep track of her pace and reiterate what to teach her. Overall I really like the school because our kid loves to see her teachers and has made many friends over the years.
My daughter attended ITAV from the time she was six months until 4 years old. She would have remained in the daycare, but we moved out of state. I can not say enough good things about ITAV. She was in four classrooms over the years and ALL her teachers were wonderful, attentive, and became like family. The school took field trips regularly, there were monthly newsletters, and I felt like the teachers actually cared about my daughter and her progress. The school also provides a family fun day once a year, family literacy nights once a month, and parents night out as well. Overall, I would recommend this school to anyone. At the end of the day, it is nice to be able to drop your child off and know that they will be safe and happy.
My Daughter has been a student at ITAV since she was 3 months old. As a new mom, ITAV could not have been more of a place of comfort and support. Every step of the way: From walking, to potty training, to reading. For over 4 years, the teachers there have helped raise my daughter to be the smart, funny, outgoing child she is. We have developed close relationships with teachers and the families as this school, and are so blessed to have them all in our lives. The curriculum ensures that our daughter is constantly learning and exploring. I never thought my 4-year-old would be telling me about the planets and the life cycles of various animals! We can't thank ITAV enough for being such a vital part of our family.
It doesnt get any better.This school is nothing short of amazing. The staff (teachers) are like a mother not only to my child but to me many times as well. They treat my son as their own and they challenge him to be great. My son has been reading and doing math since age 3 (so imagine what he is doing now). His vocabulary and worldly knowledge has no limits. I have also enjoyed the extra curricular piano lessons available with Ms. Claudia that include a fall and spring recital. I had an idea of what I would have liked the school my son would attend to be like. I never thought Id get this. They have exceeded expectations. My child's education is an investment Little Hands reminds me is well worth it
