    Comment:  I sent both my kids there -- my son, age 2, is still enrolled. The caretakers are top notch -- loving, friendly and energetic. They make breakfast, lunch and snack on site. The kids get enrichment activities including music, art and yoga, in addition to lots of free play time and outdoor time. They follow the Mother Goose curriculum and have excellent communication with parents about both the course of the child's day and administrative updates. One of the owners is always on site and they are very responsive to suggestions and requests. … About the facility: Has outdoor space, Provides meals … What would you change? It's the best daycare our family has experienced (and we've been through several).

    Comment:  We absolutely love it here. It just opened in May of 2018 so everything is renovated and new. There is a large back yard and with lots of toys and they have water activities for the warmer days. They do so many activities with the kids. One day a week they have someone come in and play the guitar and sing songs with the kids and another day someone comes to do baby yoga with them. They also do lots of circle time and art projects with all of the kids. But most of all we love how much our son truly enjoys going there and how much love and attention they give all the kids. As soon as we ring the doorbell each morning he gets the biggest smile on his face and starts flailing his arms with excitement. He also has a huge smile at the end of the day when we pick him up. We can't say enough about what a positive situation this has been for our son. About the facility: Has outdoor space, Provides meals

    Comment:  Tots on First is a brand new daycare and the second location for the owners of Kids Care on Douglass. Our daughter has been going there since they opened in January of 2018. She has been one of two babies in their care while they waited for their full license, which they have now. We have been more than happy with the care and attention she has received and we're confident that it will continue as more children join. The facility is clean and modern and the backyard is the only level one we found in our search. Our daughter loves her caretaker and smiles when we drop her off. We get pictures throughout the day and a full report to take home. This is a 'home daycare,' so there is a maximum of 12 children. About the facility: Has outdoor space, Has early morning hours, Provides meals What would you change? I will be happy when more kids join so they can start weekly baby yoga and music classes.
