    Comment:  My daughter loves going to Tiny Steps, the hours are great from 8-6 if you need. The caregivers are warm and friendly. My daughter is learning a lot and talks about daycare a lot, they do art projects, yoga class and music class. I highly recommend.. About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has early morning hours, Provides meals What would you change? Different rules with potty training. We have found it really hard to potty train due to the lack of consistency of how it is handles at daycare compared to at home.

    Comment:  Review: My daughter has been full time at Tiny Steps since she was 8 months old (she is now 25 months), and we all absolutely love it. She was in the baby room until about 18 months, and then was moved next door to the toddler space. All of her teachers have been amazing. They are kind and committed, and we know that she gets fabulous care. She has yoga and music classes, and lots and lots of arts and crafts (among other activities). Having her in full time daycare has been a struggle as a parent - I miss her so much during the day! - but I grateful to the staff for all they do. About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has early morning hours, Provides meals.

    Comment:  The caretakers are very warm, and I felt very comfortable with them looking after my son who started at 5 months. They mix the bottles and formula which is a huge time save for me to not have to prep food. They also actively work on the developmental milestones. About the facility: Has outdoor space, Provides meals What would you change? Include photo/video updates.

    Comment:  Type: DaycareAbout the facility: Has outdoor space, Provides mealsReview: We love Tiny Steps on Bergen Street. The teachers in each room (infant, intermediate, preschool-age) have all been wonderful and welcome our daughters like family. Our older daughter did 2 years here in the intermediate and older kids rooms and we found a great community of neighborhood families who have remained friends. Our younger daughter is in the intermediate room now, having started there at 3 months in the infant room. We feel like our kids are very well looked after here and can recommend without reservation.What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? The owner is great and we like her a lot, but worth noting that her management style is not super communicative. This is fine for us at this stage (and nearly all day-to-day communication is with the caregivers in each room), but I think it can be off putting for some parents when signing up.

    Comment:  Type: PreschoolAbout the facility: Has outdoor space, Provides mealsReview: I have a 2.5 year old in the preschool program and a 5.5 month old in the infant daycare. Both of my children have loved Tiny Steps. The caretakers are incredibly loving and nurturing and communicate with parents well. I should note that, until the preschool program, most of the caretakers speak only a little bit of English (their primary language is Russian). It did not hinder my older son's language development. My husband and I love having our kids at Tiny Steps. We feel like they are loved and well taken care of. We have very gentle boys and have only twice gotten reports of our older son having a conflict with a classmate (he's been with Tiny Steps since he was 11 months). All locations have their own outdoor space with toys and, for the older kids, a hose for water play on hot days. And they provide all food and cow's milk for breakfast, lunch, and snack! The only exception is baby food, which you provide until your comfortable with your child eating the food they serve. I cannot say enough good things about Tiny Steps.What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I wish they sent me pictures of kids during the day. For holidays, like Halloween, we'll get a ton of pictures, but they don't give us daily pictures. It's more for my younger son, who started at 4 month.
