  • Review from the Spring 2024 Early Education Survey

    REVIEW: We get updates on our child every day, the teachers are passionate and care about the students, there are zero screens, they have a deck they can go out on when it's nice out and they also bring students to the Parade Grounds to play on sunny days. We really love this daycare and the people there that take care of our son. We'd definitely send him here again.; Amenities: Has outdoor space, Has after-school options, Has early morning hours, Provides meals; What would you change? We've had zero major issues with the program, so I'm not changing anything.
  • Review from the 2022 Summer Camp Survey

    Location: Church Ave How old was your child when they attended camp this summer? 4 Review: My child loved the indoor jungle gym and the space was light filled and inviting. My kid did not like that during naptime they were not allowed to look at books instead of sleeping. But I think this was a rule designed to encourage them to sleep. The campers go to the parade grounds when weather allows which is a short walk from the school. The schools actual outdoor space is just an alleyway which isn’t super fancy but the kids don’t seem to mind in the inside space is nice. The staff communicates through the brightwheel app sharing photos and updates about eating and napping and they are extremely responsive to parents, answering questions addressing concerns and being very warm and nurturing. We feel confident that our son was being well cared for What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? I’d love a nicer outdoor space attached to the school but as a city daycare I understand that that’s not always a possibility. Would you like to add anything related to COVID and how the camp handled it? Since masking is optional now I thought they did a good job of balancing safety with following the guidelines. They had the kids wear masks past when it was required. But outdoors they let them take them off. At this point kids are so used to it I don’t think they mind at all. They also provided weekly testing which gave me tremendous peace of mind and saved a lot of time because we didn’t have to go to testing centers.
  • Review from the 2018/2019 PSP Daycare, Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten Survey

    We’ve been very happy About the facility: Has afterschool options, Has early morning hours, Provides meals What would you change? More pictures on Facebook or pictures sent to parents throughout the week. Even if it was one picture a week, that’d be awesome.

    Honeydew Drop Treehouse (23rd St) Review Date 2012 Program: Length of TIme: 4 days a week Child's Age: 2-3 years Review: My daughter adores all of the teachers/caretakers. She's been with them since she was 6 months old, and has grown tremendously under their care. The lead teacher is preternaturally perky, which can get under your skin if you're around too long and under the age of 5, but she gets a great response from the kids. The center director lacks communication and organization skills, which is surprising for a business owner, but does not impact day to day care in any way. They don't seem to have a real solid philosophy, but they are exploring more montessori-Reggio emilia approach. Their approach fosters independence in children, such as how they encourage even the youngest children to serve themselves during meals and snacks. The facility offers extended day, full day until 3pm and half day (3-6). It is based in a railroad apartment with a back yard. Not the snazziest facility, but more than acceptable. They're also somewhat flexible if I need additional days or hours. The school makes an effort to get the kids outside frequently, either in the yard or two the park. They generally provide vegetables with lunch daily and healthy-ish snacks. They've also helped me with consistent discipline, which seems to be based on respecting other people, meaning that the child is encouraged to think about how their actions are impacting others. I dread having to leave Honeydew someday. I'm so pleased with the care they've given to my child. Do you recommend? (Hi/Rec/DoNot) Highly recommend
