I love, love, love ITaV! I cannot say enough about the teachers, classrooms and programming. My daughter has been attending for almost 10 months now (she's 13 months old) and has learned so many new skills. She is super social and comfortable going to anyone when we are at family functions. Unlike other 13 month olds, she is not fearful of new people and though happy to be with me and dad, she is also happy to be with other people. She walks everywhere, waves, says hi and bye bye...all because of ITaV. I love that the center is academic-based and that she has daily 'lessons' with her three trustworthy and caring teachers. They are accommodating to her dietary needs and responsive to requests that I have made. Overall I am very impressed with ITaV!

As working parents, it's challenging to find a daycare with staff members who you feel are truly invested in your child's care and development. But that is what we found at It Takes a Village at River City.We first dropped our daughter off when she was 16 weeks old. That was five years ago. Since that day, we have developed positive working relationships with her teachers and administrators by asking questions, raising concerns and, most of all, listening to and respecting one another. We receive valuable and regular feedback about our daughter's development (cognitive, motor, social/emotional) and timely responses to any issues that arise. When she occasionally bore the brunt of another child's challenging social/emotional phase -- which happens in every daycare setting -- they were very thoughtful in addressing and managing the situation, which had a positive outcome for everyone involved.Our daughter is confident, curious and happy kid. She has thrived at ITAV. I have recommended ITAV to several friends and will continue to do so without reservation.
