  • Review from the Spring 2023 Early Education Survey

    Review: The teachers clearly care a LOT and our child adapted well (started ~8 mo old). They do different enrichment activities like bringing in a musician or a puppeteer, and have had a couple of sweet opportunities for parents to visit the classroom. Our child seems pretty happy, and has definitely made some other baby friends which is nice to see. Arrival and departure times are pretty regimented (you have to choose and then stick to a schedule), and we provide all meals/snacks/bottles/drinks. They also do 3k/4k with the city, so if you choose to stay you may be able to get a spot and have some consistency for multiple years. The assistant director Tashana is a gem - incredibly responsive, helpful, and wonderful with the kids. Our sense is that the quality of care is good to great, but they are consistently short-staffed which means we often arrive to a different person in the classroom with no notice. Updates in Brightwheel are consistent, but communication is otherwise spotty - it's really hard to get ahold of the director, parent-teacher conferences were canceled twice day-of, and most of the time there's no one there in the morning to watch the door and greet the kids. Since this is a government site, the spaces are significantly larger than other daycares we saw and teachers have to pass rigorous background checks - that's super comforting, but also makes hiring pretty difficult. Given the choice we might have tried elsewhere, but after 12+ months of trying to land a spot, it was the only opening. Amenities: What would you change about the program, if anything, and why? Communication with parents. It would be nice to get consistent updates on classroom activities, understand how often they're going outside, and to have the opportunity to discuss growth and development milestones.
  • Review from the Spring 2022 Early Childhood Education Survey

    Location: Brooklyn Bridge Child Development Center, 101 Willoughby St, Brooklyn, NY 11201 Type of facility: Daycare, Preschool, 3K Review: We have only been here for about 2 weeks but it has been a good experience so far. Staff and teachers are very communicative, our daughter seems to be engaged in fun activities, and we feel safe sending her each day. What amenities does the facility have? Has after-school options, Very close to local parks and makes good use of them! What would you change about the program, if anything? More updates DURING the day. They take lots of lovely pictures and give a comprehensive update about what our child eats, when she sleeps, diapers etc. But I would love an interface that gave us more information during the day. Is there anything you would like to add about how the school is handling the pandemic? The school has had very strict rules around the pandemic, and parents are still not allowed beyond the front door.
