This is my go to workplace and I don't even have a child to bring with me. Collab and Play believes in the sharing economy and has on site childcare. You can work from there, enjoy a nice atmosphere and now that your child is in good hands. The children spend their day in a completely soundproof room so no disruptions :-)
Montessori Academy is a great school. Pros: Every experienced teachers. They have been working at the school for 15 plus years. Says a lot about their dedication to this school. Very close to Disney and DreamWorks.They have been running for over 35 years and the owner is very engaged with every child and teacher. Well loved by all the kids. Facility: Very clean. Toddler care (Ages 2 - 3) teachers potty train and ensure children always come home clean.Service: Teachers teach the Montessori way. Kids learn so much. Very loving and very patient with the kids.Both my kids went there since they were 2 to 6 years old. I've seen them grow and learn so much. Most of all they walk in with excitement and leave hugging all the teachers.
First, this is not a review about the child care itself, rather the way they run their business which makes me question their competence. I made an appointment for a meeting/tour in 2 days time. 45 minutes before the set time, the woman cancels saying they have filled the one open slot. (1) Why such a last minutes cancellation? - Unprofessional (2) If there was already someone being considered, would it have been so difficult to mention it? (3) If they suddenly got another request after I had set the appointment, could they not have called to let us know to at least give a chance to meet and/or decide on the spot? (4) There was no explanation so I have no idea what happened and there was not even a symbolic word of apology. - InconsiderateThis may be a perfectly safe place for child care and thus I have rated it a neutral 3. But this incident makes me question their professionalism, competence and honesty. I am happy this happened and I did not put my child under their care.
I love this child care facility; Carolina is the best at home daycare provider I have found in the Glendale district. Her expertise and loving care makes me feel at ease to know my son is truly learning and getting the best care he needs. My son has been going here for 2 years, since he was 6 months. She always keeps me informed on his daily activities and his learning abilities. Her place is clean and she always maintains her children on a schedule throughout the day, which is important for my Childs development. From the instant that you meet her you can see and feel the warmth and love that she has for each child she is taking care of. I would highly recommend her and her place to anyone looking for a nurturing childcare locally.
