"We love
. It has been such a blessing to our family. The teachers are lovely and very sincere and truly love the kids.
" , the director is exceptionally wonderful, very kind, accommodating, and really goes above and beyond. She knew that we try to speak a second language to our kids at home, so she went out of her way to add books in our mother
to the center's library so the kids can get exposed to it (plus she just happens to speak a bunch of languages fluently, so she could even read the books to our kids). They also provide a parents night out, where they open the center from 5-8pm some nights for free and they provide activities and pizza for the kids just so the parents can get a date night or run an errand. The kids absolutely love it there and we are just so thankful for the personalized care and strong curriculum and loving teachers at

"My granddaughter started services at this day care with the expectations of receiving early learning curriculum and a safe care. My granddaughter's diaper was" changed only twice in a 8 hour period. When my daughter picked-up my granddaugher she had food dried on her face, a wet diaper, and only two bottles used for an 8 hour day. During the time my granddaughter was at this day care she suffered, pink eye, influenza, two ear infections, a continuous diaper rash, and a cold. Prior to being at this day care she was never ill. On Thanksgiving, when my granddaughter was ill again, we decided to stop having her go to this horrible day care. She has not had any illnesses since leaving this day care. I am a RN and have never seen such neglect for such a high price!!!

Daycare Center reviews in Chesapeake

A

Rating
After being with this childcare for years and two children from infancy to preschool. Here is why we have rated this child care, day care and preschool five-stars:
• Program Schedule
• Nutritious Food
• Clean Premises
• Organized activity centers
• Knowledgeable staff
• Safety is paramount...More /> • Happy, upbeat atmosphere
Ms. Shashi really cares for our children, us as parents and her employees as well. Very rarely will you see this combination. It is not a fancy location, nor do they have all the latest bells and whistles; however, provide the best care we have seen in a long time.

We have moved several times as our children have grown up and have experienced childcare providers in numerous locations as our daughters have grown. We have always had good service from those providers, but our experience at
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
has been off the charts positive. Our youngest daughter started as a 4-year old last Spring and moved to the Pre-K class in the Fall. The teachers in both rooms (

and
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
in the younger room and
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
and
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
in PreK) have been absolutely amazing. Their positive attitude and interaction with children is fantastic and they obviously love what they do. Our daughter has a structured learning environment that is well communicated (the daily e-mails with pictures of the day are fantastic) and the education and nurturing is wonderful.

In addition to the environment, the incorporation of daily physical activities into the curriculum (and at no extra cost - the first time I've had that experience) in the Kids First areas is great. My daughter participates in a soccer, yoga, tumbling, and basketball class every week (one per day) and has found some things she really loves because of that exposure.

I would highly recommend

for anyone looking for the high quality childcare at a reasonable price.

Our son has been enrolled in
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
in
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
NJ since June 2010 as a 7 month old. He has gone through every classroom level that they have and is currently in their Kindergarten program.
We chose TLE because it is not just a baby sitting service or a daycare. It is a continual learning environment. The children are constantly stimulated and challenged. Our son started learning sign language before he could speak. He has been continuing on that path and has also been learning Spanish and Mandarin. His reading, spelling and math skills are well ahead of where they should be. It is a great testament to the teachers that TLE
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
has.
The children also get plenty of physical education as well. They learn how to play together and share with their friends. Social skills are very well developed at TLE.
Lunch is provided for an additional fee on either a daily or monthly basis if desired.
The approximate cost listed in this review is exactly that, an approximate. Different classroom levels are different rates. Working Family Discounts also change the rate.
TLE participates in a "Working Family" program that teams up with different companies and provides a tuition discount of 10 percent. Keep that in mind as it helps ease the tuition costs a bit. You will want to set up a tour for yourself and discuss prices.
Overall we are very happy with the choice that we made almost 5 years ago, We knew the price was just a bit high going in, but we gave it a shot and we could not be more pleased with our child's growth. We would not do it any differently.
If you are looking, definitely consider TLE
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
, you will not be disappointed.

The staff here are GREAT. They love the kids and provide a safe and positive environment for them. I've interviewed many daycare services around here and this place is the best, in my opinion. They provide random fun activities for the kids. Their summer program is full of fun field trips (for the school aged kids). They even did a safe

was one of the best choices I made as a parent.
The teachers are professional ,warm, encouraging and do a wonderful job. The staff communicates well and warmly with parents, and my son enjoyed a warm encouraging and safe environment rich with early learning experience. I saw an amazing learning and enthusiasm for knowledge, socialization with new friends and growth throughout his VPK year.
There is a large play yard and grass field with a variety of outdoor play options, and indoors, is always kept clean and full of enriching toys, learning displays and activities focused on the children.
If I had found AKA a

The school incorporates a wide variety of activities and fun field trips for the children. For my son's birthday, the school welcomed worked with me to allow me to put on an in-school birthday celebration with all his friends, incorporating crafts, games and book-reading around the them of his party - dragons!

is a professionally run organization, yet they have not lost the essential personal warmth and rapport with children and parents that I found so missing in the "Corporate machine" and " Curriculum routine" types of other VPK and day care centers in the area.
They have operated in this location for over 20 years - one staff member even attended as a child. I give

Wake Forest
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
was our first choice when we moved to Wake Forest when I was pregnant, but their infant room didn't have any availability when I had to return to work. I should have realized then why it's so popular with parents. When we bought a house, we found out our neighbors' two children both attended

and they loved it. The compassion and patience the staff demonstrates with the children is amazing - everyone in the facility is sincere and kind and (bonus!) many of them are actually parents! There's a big difference in how effectively teachers are if they've been through those toddler years with their own. We had a disastrous experience with Montessori that left my daughter anxious about school and fearful of teachers. When we brought her to tour
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
, the staff was so gentle and reassuring and gave her lots of room to check things out on her own terms. By the end of our visit, she gave Ms.
Chesapeake Childcare Centers Provider Name Locked
a hug and I knew we'd found a great place. She's been there for just over six months and the difference is amazing - she's happy, loves going to school, has lots of friends (many of which she'll go to kindergarten with) and is learning so much everyday. The school even arranges for additional classes - gymnastics, soccer, language skills - to come to the school, which allows her to do things that we couldn't accommodate with our work schedules otherwise. As a parent, I love the little features that empower kids to do things on their own - they have the smallest toilets I've ever seen, the glass walls between classrooms that give it a great community feel, and the consistency of the staff. Having access to the camera system (I even have an app on my phone) helps my husband & I overcome our mommy/daddy guilt anytime, anywhere. There's no question that this is the best possible investment we could make for our child!

This will be my first negative review about any business. I take people livelyhoods seriously since I am also a business owner and know the power of reviews This daycare has five unsubstantiated complaints of abuse of children in their care including one complaint of abuse of a baby. My family pulled our child after our son said he was spanked at the school. We calmly met with the director and explained the situation understanding that children can be children. The response was that that would never happen by one of her staff even though it was said to have occurred when she was absent. I don't know what happened 100 percent since I wasn't there and neither was the director. but the director stonewalling and her 100 percent belief that nothing could ever happen is concerning and downright scary- nothing is 100 percent in life. Then we find out we are not the first. Or the second- but the fifth to have this issue. We only can blame ourselves for trusting referrals from other parents. Please check out the state website. It's shows the five complaints I mention above and the 11 violations they received on their last state inspection.
