Daycare reviewOur daughter started at Irving Golding when she was 4 months old (she is now 7 months). Before we decided on a day care, I spoke to several families with children there, all of whom said lots of good things about it. We have been really happy with it thus far. The caregivers are all warm, kind, and seem genuinely attached to the children. I like that there is a mix of ages (infants up to age 2) and that they have an open door policy--I can come visit, breastfeed, etc. whenever I want. The atmosphere is homey, there is outdoor space, the hours (7am-6:30pm) are generous, and the director is very responsive (she seems to be available by text or phone 24-7!). All of this helped make the difficult transition of going back to work a little easier.
Review from the 2014 Daycare/Preschool SurveyLength of Time: Full 5 days Child's Age: 1-2 years Review: This is a great home-daycare located in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. The teachers are all loving and kind. Affordable with great hours. They take the kids on trips to local attractions (the library, Brooklyn Children's Museum, Botanic Gardens) regularly and have someone come in to do music and movement once a week. The space is small--it's the first floor of the row house where the director lives--but because the kids are all under 2 and most aren't thaaaat mobile, it works. This is a pretty traditionally run daycare that is very focused on cleanliness and eating enough, but they are responsive and always welcome visits from parents, but don't require extra work from the parents. The director also runs a different space for 2-5 year olds (Amy's Academy), but I don't have any personal experience with that location. Recommend (Hi/Rec/DoNot): Highly recommend Would you send your child again? Absolutely
