"Casa Dia Montessori is a wonderful place! We've used another daycare in the past, but returned to Casa because nothing compares to the care our children receive there. We feel comfortable and confident leaving our children (3 years and 8 months) in the care of the staff each day. I recommend Casa to anyone looking for excellent childcare that values helping families raise confident and happy children."

My daughter has placed my grand daughter at this facility several times and said they are always very nice and helpful.
CA is a wonderful environment that seeks to balance academic rigor with a Godly worldview. The faculty and staff truly care about the kids and definitely go the extra mile to help them learn and develop to their fullest.
This is an excellent school for a child of any age. We were selecting a school for our 3-year old 2 years ago. We went through a lot of child care centers and were stunned how clean and well organized Goddard was. Our daughter spent two very happy years in Goddard and learned so much. She completely loves being in this school. Class size is perfect and school is extremely safe. Ms. Jody does an excellent job running the school . Ms. Lindsey does an excellent job as Director (with the help of Ms. Kelen and Ms. Lacey of course). Teacher turnover is very small and my daughter has had the same few teachers since she has been there (Ms. Katie, Ms. Amanda and Ms. Heather are the best ever!!!). Social development and learning through play is exceptional. Not a single complaint, only positive remarks.
Love Love LOVE!!! Best daycare! The staff is helpful and will do whatever they need to make sure you are satisfied!
When I was four months pregnant (Jan 2012), I inquired about how long the wait list was for infant care. I was told that a spot would likely be available for my child by June 2013 (17 months later). Based on that information, I decided to pay the deposit as a backup plan - in case we ended up unhappy with where we did end up sending our daughter. I never would have wasted my money though if I had known that was not an accurate representation of the wait list - at a minimum we are looking at 29 months!!!!Today, I received my first call ever from the Goddard School - Rick Hill. They were calling to update our wait list info from 2 years ago!!! When I pressed about when a spot would actually be available she vaguely said "maybe sometime this year - spots could open up in the 2 y old room". That is at a minimum an entire YEAR later than they told me when they gladly took my deposit money and completely misrepresented the expected date of an open spot. Based on this misrepresentation, I asked that my deposit be returned. Pretty ridiculous that they still maintain that the deposit is non-refundable when after 2 years there is still no foreseeable spot available. By the time a child is over 2 years old the options for child care open up dramatically - seems like a bait and switch to accept deposits for infant care when no spot will be available for 29 months (at a minimum!) at which time - you have many other good options. I would recommend prospective parents take a look at Webster Child Care Center. As a non-profit (as opposed to the for profit that Goddard is) they have better student teacher ratios in their classrooms for slightly less tuition. Our experience there has been amazing! They also accurately represented their wait list.
I wanted to write a review since it seems all these reviews are pretty old. We switched our son from an in-home daycare to Mary Margaret because our in home sitter was not working at all! We were able to get our son in pretty quick when he was about 4 months. I have found his caretakers to be reliable, loving, and fun. They seem very in tune to his needs and it is obvious that they enjoy him as much as he enjoys them. I think I've seen him crying once when I came to pick him up, other than that he is happy and in a great mood when we drop him off or pick him up. I feel relieved to know they are taking such good care of him and I know they will call me if any problems/concerns arise. I have found them very easy to communicate with as well. As far as the older complaints, I'm not sure how the person saw a baby in a car seat, car seats are not allowed in the center. I would (and have!) recommend this center to anyone looking for quality, convienent and affordable child care.
