Sterling Place Daycare
Review from the 2018/2019 PSP Daycare, Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten SurveyMy son has been attending SPDC for the past 5 months. He started when he was about 15 months old. I can't say enough good things about this daycare. Zena and Miche are warm, loving people with a very intuitive sense of what toddlers need and tons of positivity and patience. What I love about SPDC is that the children have lots of free play time and the opportunity to explore their own interests but they also go on trips and have planned, fun activities. Zena posts a photo album online once a month, which is a really nice way to get a peek at what your child is doing all day. If you are looking for a daycare for young children that strikes the right balance between an intimate, home environment and something more educational - this is it! About the facility: Provides meals What would you change? A slightly later pick up option (6:30 instead of 6) would make all the difference in my family's hectic schedule.
Review from the 2017/2018 PSP Daycare, Preschool, PreK, Kindergarten SurveyFor our family, Sterling Place Daycare is the perfect "happy medium" between an intimate, home-based family daycare and the more structured environment of a full-service daycare center. The owner operator of the facility, Zena Olivencia-Edge, is really knowledgeable about child development, and she has created a Montessori environment where toddlers can learn by playing. She also obviously loves toddlers and is a warm, patient, happy person to be around. She is fabulous at all methods of communication (email, text, phone), professional and convenient with billing (she sends a Venmo invoice every week), and all her rules/limits are fair. While my 17 month old son has only been in Zena's care for a couple of months, since he's begun attending Sterling Place he's made several developmental advances, and I can't wait to see what else he learns here. Get on the waiting list if you can - it's worth it! About the facility: Provides meals. What would you change? Maybe more opportunities to interact with the other parents who send their kids here? Like a Facebook group or something? It feels like there's a missed opportunity to build community and make playdates for outside of daycare hours. But that's probably something that parents should organize, not the daycare provider.
