Magic Moments Academy
school/daycare recommendation for 2.5-year-old for current time or JanuaryWe have been at Magic Moments Academy (Clinton Hill/Bedstuy border) for the last year and a half and have been really happy. My daughter stands outside school at night greeting other adults as they pickup and trying to go back to school! I am not sure about spots in their 2s program but definitely worth reaching out!
Review from the Fall 2021 Early Childhood Education SurveyType of facility: Daycare, Preschool, 3K, & 4K Review: My daughter currently attends daycare here and she loves it. The community of parents is wonderful, the teachers are incredibly loving, and the owner and her team rallied around us to support our daughter when she had to go through a serious medical procedure that required tons of accommodations on their part. I would pick this place over and over again, but I will say that communication from the owner is not the best. When it comes to things like COVID and serious matters she is 100% on top of it, but if you have random questions you will have to really chase her down for an answer. For me, the pros outweigh that con. What amenities does the facility provide? Has after-school options, Has early morning hours, Provides meals, Provides meals for the older children. Is there anything you would like to add about how the school handled the pandemic? They are very cautious about Covid and super heavy-handed with the protocols (understandably.) They just implemented an on-site testing program for the kids to participate in if parents choose (cheek swabs instead of nose.)
Review from the Fall 2021 Early Childhood Education SurveyType of facility: Daycare, Preschool and 3k/4k Review: Our daughter continues to be challenged and excited to go to school each day and tries to get back into school each night when we leave. Her teachers are so invested and proud of the new words and sentences and growth she shows and are great at sharing them on the app. The parent community is incredibly strong with summer picnics and playground meetups and clothing swaps. What amenities does the facility provide? Provides meals Is there anything you would like to add about how the school handled the pandemic? The staff is fully vaccinated and continues to limit how parents enter the facility to reduce crowding, all staff and students and drop off adults are temperature checked. The families have been taking social distancing and masking seriously, after vacation times like thanksgiving are asked to share an additional questionnaire for safety and potential quarantine need. They about to launch a testing program as well.

Review from the 2020–2021 Daycare, Preschool, Pre-K, and K SurveyReview: My daughter loves the personalized attention from her teachers from the nickname they call her, to dance parties and art, to circle time where they learn about themes including taste testing foods. Her teachers clearly have a joy for children and it makes her feel loved and want to be there (she regularly asks about her teachers on the weekends!). I would 100% send my daughter again if I had to do over. Facility amenities: What would you change about the program? I would love a meal plan and the program is working to see if it’s a viable option to add it. Is there anything you would like to add about how the school handled the pandemic? We started in August 2020 and were terrified about the exposure after really interacting with no one for so long. The team was so patient with my “what if” scenario questions ahead of time and the fear quickly melted away within a day or two of bringing my daughter. When talking to the teachers during the year, you could tell they were doing everything they could to keep themselves and the community safe and I felt the need to do the same! We took the daily attestations and requirements to isolate after any trips (we didn’t take any) quite seriously, as did other families!
Daycares in the neighborhoodMy son goes to Magic Moments on Fulton & Classon. He loves it there! They update their app throughout the day with pictures & updates so I really feel like I know what he’s doing all day. Great communication & covid protocols.
day care recommendations?We are very happy with Magic Moments Academy on Fulton b/w Franklin and Classon. That is probably pushing your definition of Prospect Heights, but I am happy to tell you more if it isn't.
Review from the 2019 PSP Daycare, Preschool SurveyMy child has been here for nearly 18 months (since she was 6 months old). She loves it - excited to go to school and comes home happy/exhausted. We have seen her flourish and develop - many skills specifically tied to activities and exercises in the classroom. DETAILS: Has an indoor play space for rainy days
Review from the 2017/2018 PSP Daycare, Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten SurveyMy child (18 months old) always seemed very comfortable there and I’ve liked all the teachers that he’s worked with. I like that they have a variety of different activities that they rotate through (water table, edible play dough, music class, etc.). The owner is pretty organized and communicative with parents. My one major criticism is that they have had a lot of turnover in the last year. I know high turnover is common in a Daycare setting but it has seemed particularly high to me. About the facility: Has early morning hours, They have refrigerators in every room so I was able to bring frozen breast milk and half gallons of whole milk. I didn’t have to prepare bottles.
