01/21/2016Discovery Preschool & Child
My daughter has been going to Discovery for a while now and we're very happy. The teachers do a great job and the owners and directors are very involved in all of the classrooms. Seeing them spending time in all the rooms, lending a hand when needed, and helping to keep everything organized makes it feel very cohesive and family-like. The teachers do a lot to work with the kids on their preschool/pre-k skills, and they help kids learn to work through all the social challenges of daycare and school. The center is also great about making things fun -- they always have cute projects, celebration days, special guests (Mr. Magic is definitely a favorite!), etc. Summers are especially fun. Our first summer there we were really surprised at how much they do for the kids. (There's usually a special thing each week -- water slide, bouncy house, sno cones, animals to pet and learn about, theme weeks, etc.). We feel comfortable that our daughter is in great hands. Most importantly, she likes it. Visit a few other daycares and I guarantee you'll notice a difference at this one. It's not just a place to watch your kids-- they really have a sense of pride in their work and want to go above and beyond.
My child has been at Bright Expectations since she was 3 months old. The experience there has been a wonderful one for her and myself. I learned of Bright Expectations through a co-worker who utilized their services for both of her children. Not only is the environment a healthy one, I can honestly say that I feel comfortable with this being her home away from home during the day hours. The Director and the staff have been very friendly and informative. My now, 2 year old, has a lesson plan scheduled for her monthly which keeps me abreast of what will be "happening" on a daily basis. She looks forward to taking a book each Wednesday. And of course, she comes home wanting to read it to me as well. She also receives a daily report of her activities at the end of the day for me to take home as well.During the winter months, my co-workers complain of daycare closings, however I am very seldom impacted as they strive to be open for parents and their children.If I have any concerns (as you know parents have at least one, we can't help ourselves), the staff is always their to listen and work with you. For this reason and the reasons above, I recommend them highly.
Beautiful Faces is a wonderful Childcare provider! My children, especially my oldest child, have never liked attending daycare. However, they look forward to going to Beautiful Faces Childcare each day! And honestly, that says so much in itself. The owner is very interactive with the children, doing things such as playing basketball with them! She knows how to speak with them correctly and be firm when necessary with no corporal punishment! Excellent! 5 Starts :)
