We had so many problems including excessive biting on my children and my daughter's wrist hurting from being pulled by the director (Margaret). They gave us "boo boo" reports but didn't have their own documentation of it. They have FIFTY VIOLATIONS from the Department of Family and Protective Services. She will claim that she has turned the place around in the last 2 years that she has been there. The report I pulled with the 50 violations was for ONLY the last 2 years. And keep in mind, she was there before, but as the assistant director. Please, for the sake of your children, find a different daycare even if it is not as convenient. Their safety is more important than free breakfast.
I have had my daughter there since she was a couple months old and she is 2 now. She is very happy and learns daily. There was a point when the some of the staff was not helpful and they were not following proper procedures. But now they have a new manager and staff members. I am extremely happy with all of the recent changes.
I am not sure that the previous ratings apply to the current management at Silver Spoon. My toddler started daycare at 2 months old and was at the same daycare until one month ago. The previous day care began complaining that he would not engage and would not listen, yet when I asked the teacher what was going on she would say I think I am too lenient with him because he is so cute. So pretty much he was calling the shots, they created a monster and now expected me to correct the problem. I finally got fed up and pulled him from there. I moved him to another day care who apparently did not take the time to engage him in activities and called me 2 - 3 times the first two days. Upon recommendation from my cousin, whose child used to be cared for by Ms. Perez (new director) in her home, I contacted Silver Spoon and was beyond impressed. The day is started with breakfast, the pledge and a prayer. My 2 year old is now starting to recite his ABC's and count objects (something he refused to do before). Their meals are well balanced. I am impressed by the progress my child has made in just one month and he LOVES attending. I have yet to leave him crying. I recommend anyone looking for quality day care you contact Silver Spoon. I do not have a single complaint or concern and know my child is well cared for.
Plz read horrible reviews regarding this day care on Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.. Report after report and nothing gets done and their cameras are always not working and they state they have a technician coming but never gets done.. Plz don't wait for a child to be put in danger before something gets done.. concerned grandmother

We are so pleased with Silver Spoon. They have a great center with a wonderful staff and a fantastic education program. Our child was behind other children in her age group until we enrolled her here. Within just a few weeks she bloomed like a spring flower! She was never this happy or excited about the previous day care places we tried, but now she begs to see her teacher and friends. We love the internet monitoring system. We can check on her classroom anytime we want. The children are always busy doing something, the room is always clean and her teacher is attentive and loving. Great job Silver Spoon! We highly recommend this child care!
This child care center is just wonderful! Our child has learned so much and is way ahead of other children in his age group. The staff is friendly and the place is very clean. My husband and I are extremely pleased and will be sending our newest baby here in just a few more weeks. We have complete confidence in the care we know our children will always receive. Silver Spoon was highly recommended by more than one member our church group and we are so pleased we took their advice. We attended three others before this one and they were awful - unsafe playgrounds, dirty rooms and not very friendly. They never responded to the parents like they do at Silver Spoon. This center is the best in Corpus Christi.
My friend recommended your center. I tried two others and they were way below my standards - not friendly, unclean, lacked sufficient lesson plans. Thank you for being caring, clean and safe. Our son is always happy when we pick him up. He has learned so much! We love it here!

We are so happy here! We have tried other child care facilities, but silver Spoon is the best city-wide. The teachers are friendly and keep us well informed about our children (1 and 3 yrs.) and their progress. They have learned so much and look forward to going there each and every day. The rooms are cheerful and clean and the facility is impressive. They care about both the children and parents. We are very pleased! Thank you Silver Spoon!
A friend of mine showed me this review and I just had to respond. We have had a daughter in this child care center since 6 wks. old - now 3-1/2 yrs. - and have always been pleased. It is illegal to work a teacher from 7:00 AM until 6:00 PM. This is why there is a teacher to welcome each child in the morning, a teacher to teach each class all day, teachers that rotate while my child nap so each can go to lunch and a different teacher to release them at the end of the day. This equals 4 teachers, but only one teaches a child all day. I like this because it allows my child to know all the teachers and all of them to know her. My husband and I both watch our child on the internet several times a day. If a child is a persistent biter they are disenrolled to protect other children. This happened just last week in my child's class. We plan to enroll our next child (due in July) at Silver Spoon. We know it to be safe, clean, loving and very educational. The staff is wonderful and our daughter has learned things far above her friends that attend other day child care centers in the area. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this child care center.
The name SassyMom101 says it all! She was finally asked to leave because of the disruptive behavior of herself and her child. My two children were in the same classroom and received excellent care and attention. Anytime a child is given a different teacher is most often when he/she has behavioral problems. I personally think this is a good thing and helpful to insure healthy play and a meaningful educational environment. I've never had any problem accessing the internet system to watch my children and have been there for over two years. I log on several times a day. I would highly recommend this daycare if you are seeking the best Corpus Christi has to offer in loving, caring, attentive and excellence in care and education. Both of my children were reading and counting well before age 4. Enough said!
My son attended Silver Spoon for almost a year and at the beginning it all looked great. It was a little expensive, but you can't put a price on the safety and education of your children. It was very clean and everyone we met seemed great, but once he was enrolled we had a number of problems. Not only was the ratio of kids to teachers at its max, but in the short period of time my son attended the day care he had at least 4 different teachers. I was extremely disappointed when I brought my son home from daycare one day to find a huge bite mark on his arm. I was in no way informed on the situation and after I confronted the manager she was not aware of the incident. Silver Spoon also had a second location that closed down and brought even more kids to the daycare. Accessing the internet to check on my child became almost impossible because there was always too many users logged in. In my opinion this facility is only looking out for what is best for them and not what is best for the children. I would not recommend this day care to any parent.

We've been here for almost two years and are extremely pleased with the progress of our child. She is very happy, well adjusted and looks forward to being dropped off each day. She is advanced in reading, numbers and memorizing things far beyond other children of her same age. Thanks go to the well planned daily lessons and attentive teachers. Our child is 3-1/2 yrs. old. The center is clean, well organized, well staffed and cheerful. We HIGHLY recommend Silver Spoon!
My child attended SilverSpoon, for two years, and I was very upset by comment made by Mshel85, I practically lived at SilverSpoon, I was very close to the Staff and found that they went beyond the call of duty. They are caring,understanding, and educated people, unlike the comment posted, it's a shame that they didn't have a SilverSpoon when this person was growing up, perhap's she would have learned how to spell towards,not twords.

I have been at Silver Spoon for 8 months now and am happy to say it is the BEST day care in Corpus Christi! I tried three other child care places before coming here, including the largest one in the city. They were all just horrible! Silver Spoon has been a wonderful place for my child (age 3). The center is very safe and clean. The staff is friendly and attentive. The curriculum is excellent and my child is excelling very fast. Silver Spoon shows sincere interest the chilren and their parents. They are top-notch! Thanks! High Recommended!
My friend found an unflattering review on this website and I must respond. I have an infant currently enrolled in this center and my 5 year old just left it to start public school this fall. His teachers are already telling me that he is happy, well adjusted and very advanced in his learning. They were not surprised when I told them he was enrolled in Silver Spoon Child Prodigy Day Care for the last 2-1/2 years. They say they have always heard good things from Silver Spoon parents. I tried other day care places in Corpus Christi before enrolling in Silver Spoon. They were horrible! Silver Spoon Child Prodigy Day Care deserves FIVE STARS!
Great child care! Our children have been enrolled for 3 years at this center and we find the environment very safe, clean and friendly. All the staff members are well trained and very loving. My husband and I monitor our children online daily to watch them eat, sleep and play. Meal times are always 30-35 minutes and we have never seen any mistreatment of a child. We are both very pleased with the care our children (toddler and 3 yr. old) receive at Silver Spoon. We have recommended the center to several of our friends and they are also thrilled to be here. Our children are happy, healthy and very well educated - exceeding other children in their age group. THANKS SILVER SPOON - GREAT JOB!
