  • 2019-2020 Year Review

    This is a small, Montessori-based family daycare with mixed ages (currently about a dozen children between 6 months and 2+ years) with four teachers, including Ms. Stacey, who runs the daycare. All staff members are involved, attentive, and passionate about the children. Ms. Stacey has been the right mix of prescriptive and cooperative, giving us tips on transitioning our baby to solids and accommodating our requests. The atmosphere is homey and comfortable. … About the facility: Has outdoor space, Provides meals … What would you change? It's a bit far from subway stations, and although the teachers provide some instruction, story time, etc., the range of activities may be a bit limited for older children.

    Length of time: Full time (5 days) Child’s Age: < 1 year Type of facility: Privately run daycare/preschool with multiple classes and teachers REVIEW: This is a wonderful day care in a very nondescript building. The teachers really love the kids and have a well-developed educational philosophy that is slightly Montessori in nature. All of the materials are a kid height and accessible. My older son went here for two years, and they did a great job helping him learn prosocial behaviors like sharing, training, talking about feelings, waiting your turn, etc. The facility consists of two attached playrooms, a kitchen/eating space, and an outdoor play area. In the summer, the kids grow tomatoes and lettuce, and on hot days they set up a water table under a shade structure that the kids just love. They allow for two day transition, which feels a little short but seems to work fine. The director has always had great guidance for us, pushing us to get rid of our son's pacifier and helping us with potty training. They hold parent teacher conferences at the end of each year, and give feedback on the kids' milestones. My daughter who has been there for six months needs physical therapy, and they have arranged to have a physical therapist come to the daycare. The main downside I see to this daycare is that there is no separate sleeping area. They have always made it work, and both my children learned to sleep very well there, but it would be great if the little ones could have a place to sleep that was completely separate. That said, I think that learning to sleep there has made them both excellent sleepers who can sleep through anything. The staff is also better as educators than administrators, and you need to stay on top of your paperwork and any closure days, because they might forget to give reminders. Would you recommend? Highly recommend Would you send your child again? Absolutely
