"
is an excellent daycare provider. She has taken care of my daughter since she was 10 months, and my daughter and I love her very much. " She is very kind, friendly, and loving with all the children and a great educator. She has a very helpful and caring staff. The daycare center is in a great location and is always clean and organized. They always have great prices and I would highly recommend
for anyone looking for a daycare center. A++++

is excellent. I would recommend her center to as many people as I could in Ohio. From the first time I talked to her on the phone 3 years" ago till now she has been great. She is caring, considerate, loving, and the best care-giver that I've ever known. My grand-daughter could not get any better care from her mother or grandmother than the care that
gives. She takes infants (3-6 months old) You won't have to worry about the service, because it is the top of the line. The price is great, I'm so glad I found her! No one else would be able to take care of my grand-daughter and my daughter in a more professional way. She goes above and beyond. Best manager and care center in the world. It is such a blessing to have
in our lives. She is a class A lady in my book.

Daycare Center reviews in Durham

F

Rating
Regardless, it's a horrible place. Our child was terrified of it, and it worked out for the best after we took him to somewhere who actually didn't neglect children and had morals.
The establishment still scours the internet for bad reviews and has them removed.

Everyone is really great. I feel like the staff in my child's room love her as their own. They keep good track of each kids schedules (when they eat, have dirty diapers, sleep, etc) and give each kid individualized care based on parents's request. My daughter always seems to be having fun and I can tell she definitely loves her teachers. ...More /> They are open 7am-5:30pm and I wish their hours were a little more extended (630am-6pm?)
My only complaint is the snacks provided aren't always healthy. While they do offer fruits and veggies, often times the snacks are things like crackers, cereal, pudding, etc so if you don't want your kid to eat those, they either miss out on snacks or you provide your own (which, providing my own is fine with me, I just wish they valued more nutritious snacks for all the kids in general).

I e-mailed
Durham Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
and Tutors and another company in the early evening. I did not expect a response that evening since it was after business hours. However, I did not receive a response the next day and now it is three days later and I still have not received a response. Very dissapointing that they do not respond to my request even if it was only to tell me that they had no tutoring openings. The other company that I e-mailed at the same time responded early the next morning and has been responded within two business hours to all my questions.

They are all very wonderful, from the owner to the staff. A lot of care and concern for the children. My son is only 2 years old and can count to 15, knows all his colors, and knows all the letters in the alphabet. In addition I feel very safe and comfortable when dropping him off in the mornings and I know i don't have a worry in the world!

This is a great daycare. They are genuinely friendly and care about the well-being and educational development of our child.
Classrooms are organized and well-run. Unlike other day cares we have tried, this one focuses heavily on learning and not just on videos and play time all day.

We have been very happy with HELC for our older son. He's been in all three toddler rooms and has absolutely thrived. The facilities are nice and the kids love the outdoor playground, which was added a couple of years back. The teachers have been professional and my son speaks highly of them at home. We can't wait to start our youngest there when a spot becomes available.

We researched several different schools before deciding on
Durham Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
, and we've been very happy thus far. The facility is beautiful, and all of the children, including our grandson, are very happy. Furthermore, the school administration was very open and transparent regarding their business model and teaching philosophies among other questions that we had. In fact, we had a list of questions that we had wanted to ask, but they volunteered the information before we got a
Durham Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
to do so. Something else that should be noted is that the school's fees decrease as the child gets older.

This daycare is almost like a home care situation. The building is so inviting. My child enjoys his time at the day care and I have really seen a change in his willingness to learn and explore new things. He loves all the activities that they are able to do with him. He does art everyday and loves reading time. Its a true piece of mind knowing you trust the people who are with him during the week and you trust the environment. It is located across the street from The Silver Spring police station which adds another level of security. The teachers are very good about documenting daily routines and are helpful "sounding boards" as my child explores new ground. I highly recommend this day care center. It is small enough that your child will have a voice and have alot of attention and preparation as he/she enters school.
