I placed my daughter here when she was two, back in 2008. When I had my son in December, I was delighted that Imagination Day School had opened and infant room. I absolutely LOVE the infant room! The two ladies working with the babies (Ms. M and Ms. D) are loving, nurturing, caring, and super protective about those babies! Although our daughter is now enrolled in school, she still comes back for the awesome summer camp provided by IDS. We love our summers with Ms. B and Ms. T! The only classrooms that are completely enclosed are the baby rooms. The rest are separated by solid wall partition, and I have never witnessed a room unattended. Like most daycares, there is a kitchen, but I have never seen a child in the kitchen, even with staff. When I have had concerns about anything, I simply spoke with the owners who are there every day to assist the staff in caring for the children. The biggest problem is that some of the parents at this day care could benefit from some parenting classes. Some of the parents are a little rough. But, this is a family style daycare. I wouldn't want my children anywhere else!
Both of my kids attend Gingerbread Christian Academy. I have a 4 year daughter that can be a BIG handful. This is her 4th daycare and the ONLY one that she has really loved. She gets excited about seeing her teachers and they are also excited to see her! The owners are just amazing. They themselves have ten kids of their own AND own a daycare. I always tell people if someone can have ten and want to be around more, they must REALLY love kids... and they do. That's a very, very good feeling. Ms. Jilma is the coolest lady in the world and no matter how her day has started she will ALWAYS greet you with a smile. I know this probably sounds like I'm helping them out with a good review. However, I met them when my kids started this past year. I won't false advertise ANYTHING when it comes to my kids. The people at this school, owners AND teachers, are all really, really good people!
As a single mother, finding a place that is affordable and that I can depend on is important. I signed my son up at Gallop's initially for summer camp. I LOVED it! My son now goes there for after school. They have a bus pick him up directly from school. They do so much with the children and the staff are all very friendly. Extremely convenient hours, cost effective, they help the kids with homework, very organized, etc. AND... they learn self defense! They treat you like a family. I recommend them to all of my friends and will continue to do so.
Sometimes, I pick up my sister's child and I noticed the employer and employees are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are very organized and clean. The most important thing is the children seems to be very happy.I think this is the child care center for you. Check it out.
