Le Paradis des Anges
Review from the Spring 2022 Early Childhood Education SurveyLocation: 93 4th Ave. (Park Slope) Type of facility: Daycare Review: Le Paradis de Anges is a French immersion daycare. My son, who is now 2.5, has been going there since he was 9 months old. Meeting the owner, Angele, was such a bright spot of 2020. We were deciding where we would send our 9 month old to full time daycare and Angele put me us ease when we first met her and we knew that Le Paradis des Anges was the perfect fit. The staff is warm and welcoming and provides updates throughout the day in the form of photos, comments, and videos through the BrightWheel app. They eat well at daycare with homemade meals and snacks. The staff does engaging activities with the kids like- art projects, races, workbooks (if old enough), obstacle courses, circle time, lessons around themes/holidays. They have outdoor space and spend a lot of time outside! We are so grateful to have Angele and her staff in our lives and highly recommend sending your child to Le Paradis des Anges. What amenities does the facility have? Has outdoor space, Provides meals
Feedback on French-speaking daycares in Park Slope...We are at Le Paradis des Anges and are very happy with it. Our son started when I went back to work (he was 4 months old) and he is almost 9 months now. They provide (homemade) food for all the babies including the ones under 1 which is rare, and the staff is very communicative.
Experience with Le Paradis daycare?We've had our daughter there for two months (6 months old currently) and cannot speak highly enough of the care that Angele and the team provides.
Le Paradis des Anges recommendations?Our daughter is at Paradis des Anges since she’s 4 months (she’s almost 6 months now), and we LOVE it! Angele and all the other ladies are so warm, caring, loving, and gentle. Our baby is so happy to see them in the morning :) Another big positive point for us (which will be more relevant down the line) is that Angele cooks delicious healthy food for the kids, it’s all organic and well balanced (no pizzas, quesadillas, fries and gold fishes like other daycares!). One other thing we love is that they have an app on which they regularly post photos throughout the day, it’s so nice. (I know most daycares have that, but Le Paradis being a small structure, I didn’t think they’d have it). Oh and I forgot to specify, Angele, along with all the caretakers, speak French! It was also important to us that our daughter be in a French speaking environment, and it’s the case at Le Paradis.
Le Paradis des Anges feedback/daycare or nanny decisionMy 1.5yr old son is currently enrolled at Le Paradis and we could not be more pleased. I posted a similar note in this group earlier this year - Angele is warm and caring and, though we do not speak French at home, my son is already babbling French phrases. There is currently one English-speaking teacher but I've encouraged Angele to have full French immersion, and she seems receptive to that concept. Language aside, and having attended several daycares with my other son, our experience at Le Paradis has been one of the best. Angele is just ramping up with the littlest ones but I have confidence in her ability to navigate the transition.
Le Paradis des AngesAs our parental leave winded down, we became more and more stressed thinking about daycare options and how we would have to trust complete strangers to watch our only son. Then we met Angele. I couldn't have asked for anyone better to care of our boy than her. She is thoughtful , kind, patient, hard working, and always has our son coming home with something new he learned that day. The space is always clean, full of love, happiness and more than we could ask for. As new parents, we honestly don't know how anyone can get by without an Angele in their life. I know we wouldn't be able to. 5/5 Stars
Le Paradis des AngesWe have been sending our son to Le Paradis des Anges since he was about 9 months old. We were new parents, far away from family, navigating the pandemic, and in need of full-time childcare. We came across the daycare because it was close to our apartment. When we met the owner, Angele, she put our minds at ease. She is very communicative, warm, and loving. She worked with us to mitigate our nerves associated with starting daycare! Our son has learned so much from her in the time he has been there (now he is ~15 months) and always is happy to arrive in the morning. She speaks French to the kids, sings to them, does art projects, and feeds them delicious meals. We couldn't be happier with Le Paradis des Anges and we love Angele and her staff.
