    Comment:  Program: Length of Time: Full Time, but they also offer part time Child's Age: 1-2 years2-3 years Review: This is an absolutely fantastic daycare. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Both of my kids (2 and 9 mos) are going to PGFD full time. Miss Stacy and her team are a loving, caring, playful group of teachers, who put a big emphasis on uninterrupted, creative play. My older kid cant wait to go to daycare in the morning and sometimes, he doesn't want to leave when I pick him up. The younger one loves it too. They both have tons of friends there and we also made the same great friends in the process, who we hang out with a lot after daycare and during weekends. All kids there are incredibly social and well behaved. When I toured the place, everyone seemed really happy and that made a strong impression on me. The daycare has a Montessori structured but not rigid schedule with lots of time outside if the weather permits and lots of reading, singing and interactive play (Montessori style). The food is great and healthy and how they get all these kids to nap at the same time is an absolute mystery to me. Both of my kids are great eaters and sleepers and I'm certain that the teachers at daycare played a big role in shaping that. Both of my kids started when they were very little (4 mos). The teachers supported us every step of the way and helped us through many somewhat difficult transitions (introducing solids, weaning from pacifier, bottle, etc.). If you are looking for a small, warm and caring daycare that is not run in a corporate kind of way, PGFD is the right place for you. Recommend (Hi/Rec/DoNot) Highly recommend Would you send your child again? Absolutely
