Baby Bliss Child Care
Daycare RecommendationsI'd also like to recommend Baby Bliss on midwood. The communication can be a little patchy but the kids are taken care of very well and more than that, the parent community is incredible and seemingly lifelong!
Review from the 2020–2021 Daycare, Preschool, Pre-K, and K SurveyReview: PLG had limited options for under 2 childcare facilities it seemed when we first started looking. We were elated when Baby Bliss opened as it had slightly extended hours compared to other options and still fit within our price range. It's a small "home style" daycare with a professional feel. (More so than others we looked at) Because of COVID, our son started just after he turned 2 and has been attending for about 7 months now. He enjoys it and definitely went from not speaking much to talking like crazy - which we love!!! And he has made some close friends - which we also really value! My biggest concerns have been an exorbitant amt. of vacation/holiday time that the daycare takes: around 40-45 days off. Public holidays + one week in the spring + two weeks at the end of the summer - which is simply bananas to me and my husband. There were multiple snow days as well as "staff sick days" that have left many families in the lurch this past year scrambling for care in order to work or simply taking the day off work if they were able. We don't understood why they don't seem to have additional caretakers on call when core staff gets sick/is unable to work. Instead the entire daycare shuts down for the day - which obviously puts families in a difficult spot. We've also had a *lot* of communication issues. Perhaps this is a growing pain of a new daycare - but we've been disappointed over lack of communication over days off - what symptoms result in a child getting sent home sick (often feels subjective) and expectations vs. realities of potty training (we worked to train at home only to find out they were putting our son in diapers and didn't tell us) among other smaller issues and what has often felt like very passive aggressive messages/forms of communication. They very much care for our son and other children attending, and that's the most important thing. And the hours/price worked for our schedule and budget the best... but I can't help but be disappointed over the poor communication and holiday schedule. Facility amenities: Has outdoor space, Has after-school options, Has early morning hours What would you change about the program? Less vacation time + better communication + would like if they provided meals. Is there anything you would like to add about how the school handled the pandemic? Cleaning/mask wearing was great. Unsure if caretakers have been vaccinated/will be vaccinated which makes me feel a bit uneasy (but also, nothing we can do about it...)
