FYI, I suspect the poor reviews are not authentic. Based on the quality of the grammar and information provided, those individuals are either trolls or people I am very glad don't want to be involved with LDBB. My children have attended LDBB since they were eight weeks old. The staff are wonderful and knowledgable. There is staff turnover because the staff is young and advancing through life, like young, motivated individuals should. The staff do a much better job raising my children than I do! Seriously, my kids randomly exhibit some form of new knowledge all the time (from science and sports to Spanish and art). Whenever I have randomly stopped by, the Children have been working, eating, playing, or sleeping. In over four years, I have never experienced anything like the review below described. Most importantly, my children look forward to going to LDBB in the mornings and don't want to leave in the afternoon. It is very comforting to know they really enjoy each day they spend at LDBB.
Little Dreamers is amazing with my children as I've been coming here since they opened! The staff is helpful and loving and not once have I ever felt concerned when dropping off my children. I know they are going to learn but at the same time have fun!
My daughter went to LDBB from the time she was three months old and is now thriving in Kindergarten. My son is in preschool there and not only do we love it, HE loves it. We have made lifelong friends with the families of the children our kids have met there. This is not a daycare, it is a family. The attention and care given to our children was second to none. We would send our kids back to LDBB one million times out of a million! Thank you, LDBB!!
My Son and Daughter both attend the LDBB 5th avenue location and we are over the moon happy about the care that the wonderful teaching staff provides our children. The ratios are above and beyond state requirements, in my daughters room they have 4 teachers to 12 babies, while state requires 1 teacher to 5 babies. The individualized care they offer our children is pretty unbelievable. Administration is wonderful with communication and very present in the classrooms. My advice to prospective families- Do not be afraid of the wait-list, join and tour asap and be in constant communication with the director. It is well worth the wait!
I am a teacher as well as a parent of a student currently at LDBB. I feel so privileged to work in such an amazing teaching community full of support, passion, encouragement, and friendship. As a parent, I feel so confident in the care my toddler is getting from the teachers. From the daily messages and pictures to the silly stories at the end of the day, I know that my child is in the very best hands :). I would highly recommend LDBB for prospective families looking for child care and for potential teachers looking for a wonderful environment to work in.
I LOVE LDBB. They do an amazing job of engaging children with age-appropriate curricula (from infant to pre-K2) and serve fresh, healthy foods. Staff standards are high and the management is regularly promoting teachers. (read: happy staff) Never have I ever been concerned about my child's safety, happiness or well-being here - that was a tremendous relief, having heard a myriad of horror stories from other parents. High behavior and kindness standards. Well worth the cost. The extended hours (6:30-6:30) were a big selling point for me as a single parent. I only hope I can find a primary school education that matches this experience!
I am extremely pleased with the care my children receive at Little Dreamers Big Believers. I have two children (ages 3 and 1) at LDBB. The teachers are fantastic at every level. They genuinely care about my children and it shows! More importantly, I trust them and my kids love them. I'm always impressed at the number of activities and art they do (even in the infant room). From music to gymnastics to experiential learning. I also appreciate the attention to dietary requests/requirements/restrictions and the variety of wholesome meals provided. As a working parent, I find it extremely convenient that LDBB provides all meals and snacks (beyond breast milk/formula) as well as all diapers and wipes. It's a huge convenience!!! Overall LDBB has been an outstanding experience for our family!
I have three children currently enrolled at LDBB and I love the team, facilities, and food that are a part of the experience. My children have blossomed under the LDBB curriculum and the teachers are like part of our family. Highly recommend.
My little 1 year Great Nephew was hurt today (July26,2017)at KinderCare parkway.He was picked up with a bad puffy lower eye.No one called his Mom.Has anyone else experience such treatment here.Very upset.
Children's are Safe, but extremely mediocre teachers with a few amazing ones sprinkled in. High turnover. Chaotic, dysfunctional rooms for the most part, with the teachers more concerned with their petty battles than properly running a room. Management/ownership- atrocious. You'll only find out the first time you have a problem because they sure turn on the smiles until then. The owner doesn't understand business and customer service and has hired immature unprepared 'management' who are just interested in themselves and the center's gossip. Overpriced for the quality of care.
