Our daughter was in
Garrison Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
for about 20 months, she enjoyed it very much, came home always happy. Loved her teachers very much. The daily email report was helpful to know the classroom activities and lunch details. She was in butterfly, duck, frog and then sunflower rooms. The classrooms were bright and nice layout. Overall wonderful experience.

When we moved our kids to this Daycare facility we had a good impression and were hoping this place was going to be an excellent environment for our children. They are affiliated with a Catholic Church, so we expected to be treated better. This facility has some good aspects: great space for playground, recycling program, and some great teachers, specifically Ms.

and Ms.

. However, the one thing that does not work in this place is its Director:
Garrison Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
Gotting. She is rude, dishonest, not nurturing or loving and does not care for the children. I talked with 3 moms at the daycare that have been there for more than a year, and they all had the same impression than us of the Director. All of them told me that they’ve had issues in the past with her. I am not sure why the Church lets a person like this run the facility, perhaps she does a good job administrating the place, but she is certainly not the right person to deal with people, and surely not with kids. She has an assistant, Mr.
Garrison Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
, who is a completely useless person. We never understood what he does there, he never shows up, and when you try to address an issue with him, he has no answer. The last thing worth to mention, is their fairly new teacher for the classroom of the 3 years old kids, Ms.
Garrison Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
. She is the worst teacher we’ve ever experienced. She does not have the ability or the energy to deal with kids. She does not welcome them in the morning, or engage in any way. They claim she has over 40 years of experience and that the kids were so lucky to have them. From our perspective, we can only share our experience which was seeing our kid cry every day for 3 months when he was left with her. We truly hope this review helps if you ever check or think about enrolling your kid in this daycare.

First of all, they have two indoor play areas and multiple outdoor play areas, this I have found is a rare thing in the west side of the metro. When it's nice they take the kids for a walk around the block, which I think is fabulous so the kids get exposed to so many 'wonders' like big trucks, leaves falling from trees, birds flying and airplanes. The administration is hands down fabulous. They can tell that I have trouble leaving my son every day so some times I get a quick little note e-mail saying thinks like "mom, I wanted to tell you I'm having fun today". Which may seem like nothing but it really does help and I can't really put a price on that.
The teachers in each class are so caring and knowledgeable. It really feels like they care about your child. When I walk through the halls even the teachers that don't have my son yet know his name, which really makes me think that the whole place is trying above and beyond to know my child. I would love to be with him 24/7 and work full time but of course that can't happen and this place makes it possible for me not to fret about him all day. They have healthy meals, fun activities, in center field trips for the little guys and actual field trips when they are older. It would help if they were open a bit earlier but I have adjusted my schedule to accommodate theirs and it has worked well.
I like the teachers, I like the staff, I like the other kids that attend, it's a great over all place.
Oh and they do the county child development checks to make sure your child is on track or prompts you where they need extra attention or evaluation by a professional. It would be best of the best if they did daily notes detailing what your child did during the day so you can feel a part of the child's day but really I'd rather they spend that time focused on my child so I've gotten over that. Thank you HELC for your over the top wonderfulness.

is a gem in
Garrison Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
! My husband and I toured the center in mid-June of this year (2014) and immediately knew that this was a place to which we could entrust our daughter's care (our daughter is 11 months old). The rooms and public areas are very clean (sparkling) with hand sanitizing and cleaning materials easily accessible to adults. They provide age-appropriate food (local, mostly organic, non-GMO, no-hormone) with a nicely varied menu. As a Spanish immersion daycare, they teach the kids Spanish (there's a weekly curriculum posted for each room), in addition to sign language. They also provide cloth diapers for use at the center. They will mix formula for your infant as long as you bring the formula. My daughter wasn't drinking much formula while she was there, so her teacher worked with me to troubleshoot the problem -- turns out she preferred the bottles I use at home (so they let me bring those in and leave them there for her use whenever she's there), so now she's taking it just fine. They are sooooo good with the kids, and I can tell that this is not just another job for any of them. They care, tremendously. I get a report card each day, detailing not food eaten, formula/breast milk taken, naps (duration and time), number of diapers and their...contents, activities in which she participated, and how she did, in general. They teach/reinforce manners and social skills...they're wonderful at

After check in, my 3 yr old child was taken back to his class with the other children his age, where he spent his time learning, and playing through out the day.
He said he had fun, playing with other kids, and liked when he had his snack. He was learning about shapes and colors that day, and wanted to be sure he went the next day so that he could continue coloring the shapes, and working with his teacher.
I like the quality of care that my son receives at this facility, he likes to be picked up by their bus in the morning, and sometimes goes home on it as well if I have to work later.
It is always hard to find a place that isn't just a franchise stamped out place that actually cares about your child, and is willing to work with them in an educational sense.
The staff work hard to ensure that every day is a great day for my son.

They did a great birthday party for our twins. We won a raffle for an
Garrison Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
birthday party at a PTA event, and the folks there were very helpful when I arranged to have the party for our twins. I was impressed with how well the entire party went. Even the most reluctant kids were drawn into the activities - a mixture of a
Garrison Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
introduction to some karate moves and various fun active games. They had the timing just right with a break for cake in the middle and ending with time for opening gifts at the end. All I
had to do was provide decorations and refreshments (cake, drinks, plates, cups etc) and the kids had a great time.

We enrolled our daughter full time in
Garrison Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
(Gayley St, Media PA) because it was closer to home, a good price and we had heard some good word of mouth reviews. Our first morning dropping our daughter off, the "teacher" was not that engaging and we had to ask some probing questions to understand the routine. When picking her up that day we got a standard written report but not much verbal communication, different teacher in the afternoon than in the morning. The overall sense that we got from the staff that this was just a job -indifferent and not endearing. Our daughter has food allergies and it was difficult coordinating with their nutritionist who was offsite.
Also, she was pretty disheveled (even for a 15 month old) when picking her up, i.e. sticky face, nose not wiped, etc.
First day she came home with a diaper rash, this has happened from time to time at her previous daycare - but on her first day? We said something to the director, but it continued. On Thursday (the fourth day of her tenure), I could hear her cry as soon as I entered the building, she was standing by the door. The teacher onsite - one of the many I met in 4 afternoon pickups said that she just started crying but didn't know why. I checked her diaper when I got home and immediately spotted feces on the outside of her labia, she also had feces packed in her labia. She was shaking and cried for about two hours, a yeast infection followed. We contacted the director to notify her and pulled her out immediately. The director was apologetic and sympathetic.
The price is good for the area, however it seems like a mass production. Like the
Garrison Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
's on the opposite corner - expect a low price, no frills, with part-time workers who are trying to make a buck and get off their shift. I don't typically write reviews, but thought this may help other parents. Perhaps other classrooms are bettered staffed, the infant room seemed to have engaging teachers, but after 4 days it was clear that it wasn't going to work for us in their young toddler room.

Our family loves this place.
They have great hours of operation.
They are great with the children.
They are very clean, friendly, and professional. Their summer camp is
amazing. They just provide the comfort
and dedication that every parent needs. I
would recommend this facility to anyone.

We have been using Mosaic to help our son become more comfortable with others, learning more than my wife and I can teach him, and getting him used to dealing with older and younger kids as we were expecting child #2. Now that our second baby has come, our son does not hit her as he did with other kids a couple of months ago. He is challenged and his vocabulary and interest in learning has taken off. Mosaic recently received an early childhood education accreditation making the program one of the few in the area with this national program recognition. The instructors are very good and have developed a personal relationship with our son and he really enjoys going to school now.
