"It is tough to write this review because I really liked half of the staff, but the other half of the staff I encountered seemed to have no idea what was going on" or what they were talking about. The reason they get a D instead of an F is because of how great at least half of the staff was. There was one incident where one of my sons fell outside and busted open his chin. There was no report completed when it happened and I was not notified. When I picked him up they had been eating a snack, so I thought the red
was food (sauce or jelly), but when I got home and cleaned him up (and NO the daycare did not clean him up before we left) I quickly realized it was an injury. When I called to inquire as to what happened, no one knew and they stated to wait until the next day for when the AM teacher would be there again and maybe she would know. The next day they did apologize for not having a report ready for me that would have informed me as to what happened. I informed them that when anything like that happens I expected a phone call. I had taken in an antibiotic lotion for them to put on the spot during the day, however, they refused to apply it to his injury. They simply stated, "We don't do that." I questioned, "Even if I write a permission note for you to apply it on his obvious open wound?" And the lady just repeated her statement. So not only does my son get injured on their property and they do not notify me or give aid to the wound, they also refused to give any kind of continuing aid to the wound. (My son still has a scar on his chin.) On another day one of the helping teachers threw out 4 ounces of my breast milk. Perfectly good breast milk got thrown down the sink because she didn't know it could be refrigerated and used again. She actually started heavily debating (I won't say arguing) with me about it. One of her co-workers finally chimed in and informed her that she was in fact wrong, and that I was right. That it could have been refrigerated and served again since it had not been warmed up. I will say the worker did apologize and admitted she apparently didn't know better. Some additional notes: My younger son got pink eye twice while being at this facility. We had never encountered this before. When he got it, I was informed there were other infants in the room who had contracted prior to him and had attended the school with it. One mother even stated, "Oh we just got over that," when she heard me telling a worker that was what he had been diagnosed with. I took off work and stayed home with him. Once he was healthy he attended again. After only 2 days back at the facility he contracted it again. Then a worker ended up catching it. Then one of the daycare staff actually tried accusing us of bringing it into the facility in the first place! I defended my family and stated how he contracted it from there and we were notified that at least 2 other children had it before him. The only other major problem I had with this place was that my older son was pretty well potty trained before he attended this facility and it's like they de-potty trained him. We literally had to put him back in diapers because he wouldn't go to the bathroom anymore.

"The services are excellent. They are very involved in the community. They have enrichment programs for children outside of the classroom. Arts, sports, and they" are very big on service oriented programs. They do mission trips. We have foreign exchange students that come to school here.

How To Find Quality Day Care For Your Kids

Day care provider laws and regulations vary from state to state. Get tips and advice on hiring a high-quality day care service for your children.

5 Questions To Ask While Touring A Day Care Center

Are you looking for a day care center for your children? The first step is touring potential facilities. Check out these 5 questions to ask on your tour.

Gentog intergenerational care facility
Longterm Care - Nursing Homes, Child Care - Center

Gentog provides a mutual benefit.

Angie's List
Child Care - Center, Child Care - Other, Child Care - Family/In Provider Home

Is your child care provider properly licensed or registered? Are they meeting the standards outlined by your state's Quality Rating Information System? Use this Angie's List database to find out what agencies in your state regulate the licensing and quality ratings of child care centers.

Child Care - Center

Founder Angie Hicks shares the reasons behind Angie's List's decision to operate a quality child care center at the company's headquarters in Indianapolis.

Full-time care can cost anywhere between $100 and $400 per week. Many facilities won't take children under a year, and if your child is between 12 and 18 months - still defined as an "infant" in many states - expect to pay an additional $50 to $100 per week.

Child Care - Center

Finding quality daycare is a challenge; while cost is critical, so is finding a provider who does more than the bare minimum. Daycare prices range from the reasonable to the ridiculous - what does great care really cost?

Daycare Center reviews in Vancouver

I cannot say enough good things about
Vancouver Daycare Centers Provider Name Locked
and her program. My daughter attended her pre-school for 2 years, pre-school, and pre-kindergarten and continued in occasional care here and there when she got older and I needed someplace for her to go for a day. I have recommended her over and over to people who come back and say - wow, thank you for telling us about her!
When I was looking for a pre-school I researched and visited programs all over town. I was a good planner - it was June, and I was looking for placement for the Fall. I went to many schools that were pretty and modern, some in
Vancouver Daycare Centers Provider Name Locked
, some in strip malls -- and whose staff were burned out and listless, one after another. I just happened to be driving down

Road in Roseville and saw this blue house, with a small sign out front, that said, simply, "

was so energized and fresh, the children were engaged, and I watched in amazement as she

the kids through counting to 10 --- in English, then Spanish, then German, French, Japanese, and Singhalese. Her class was very culturally mixed and her lessons a combination of
Vancouver Daycare Centers Provider Name Locked
tasks, music, manners and relationships - like teaching the kids how to treat each other respectfully and that being friends was more important than fighting over a play yard
Vancouver Daycare Centers Provider Name Locked
. Her ability to teach is intuitive and she connects so well with all of her students. The play yard equipment was old but inside and out the facility was clean and organized. I was sold and there wasn't a day I was disappointed. Her daughter, Anusha, also taught with her when she wasn't in school getting her own degree and she had several other loving assistants that worked with the kids daily.
That was 12 years ago. The program was in the morning until lunch, and for kids who needed to stay in the afternoon, she had after school care, where the kids could play, take piano lessons from her, read books, and other activities. I don't recall the cost but remember it was very reasonable and far more valuable to me than the money we paid. My daughter came out of her program a Kindergartner doing first grade work and fully prepared and excited for elementary school. She loved
Vancouver Daycare Centers Provider Name Locked
(as we all did/do), who became like a beloved aunt to her. My daughter is now a sophomore in high school and we still stop in and visit occasionally, and
Vancouver Daycare Centers Provider Name Locked
is as fresh as the day I first met her. Her school is now repainted and updated and beautiful and that rickety swing set replaced with more modern equipment, but the kids are still the same, the experience still the same, because it's not what's at preschool, it's WHO. Go check it out, you'll be glad you did.

We have had a great experience with this center. Our children have been coming here since they were 10 weeks old. Our children are very well taken care of and really enjoy their time here. We feel like their teachers really care about them and treat them like their own children.
It is one of the more expensive daycare centers in the area, but we felt it was really the best option. When our children were in the infant room the non-discounted fee was $275/week per child. In the 1 year old room it was $265/week per child and in the 2 year old room it was $245/week per child. They do offer discounts for the 2nd child - that's just the full non-discounted rate. Of course tuition increases can happen, but they can at least give you an estimate of costs if you are searching.
The center is open Monday-Friday 6:30am-6pm and full time care includes breakfast, lunch, and snack. You must provide your own diapers/wipes, etc.
Definitely worth checking out!

Sent my kids for the summer. They seemed to enjoy it. I wish it wasn't so expensive however they are much cheaper than most summer camps. Thanks for taking such good care of my kids.

I'd like to start out by saying don't trust a word that comes out of

's mouth. She will lie lie lie until the day she
Vancouver Daycare Centers Provider Name Locked
. She almost had me convinced that my children had become pathological liars until I spoke with other moms. My children basically roamed the class aimlessly for a few hours a day. They do know how to write their names but that might have been taught at home. Parent teacher conferences was a joke! I was told crap about someone else's kid because the stuff they told me my kid couldn't do he had been doing for over a year. They are so incredabally disorganized. You will find out about Friday's field trip on Monday and then you're expected to drop everything to go. They also have some bull p*** unwritten privacy policy that prohibits you from having any contact with other parents. Well when I was out of
Vancouver Daycare Centers Provider Name Locked
's line of sight at field trips I was able to talk to a few moms and they told me things that just blew my mind! One mom witnessed the class having 31 students and just 1 teacher on several occasions. Another mom confirmed that the story my daughter told me about not being aloud to wear her sweater in class was true. Who tells a small child to take off her sweater? A monster, that's who! My kids also told me that another student had a bathroom accident and was forced to clean it up himself. I wonder if they really made a 4 year old clean up feaces. They also make up rules from day to day that might apply to one family but not to others. This was extremely frustrating because just when I thought I was following the unwritten rules I find out I'm in violation. By the last few weeks of the year I said screw it and stopped caring about the dumb rules. To sum it up, just don't send your kids to

While they did take care of our son and we were not worried about his safety, we were not happy with the overall cleanliness of the facility, nor the relative lack of organization. The infant room was very small and cramped, the infants played on a rug that caretakers and parents walks on with outdoor shoes (something I don't allow at home), and we repeatedly were given home articles of clothing, etc that were mixed up with another baby's. The price is great, however I personally need a little more organization and cleanliness for my son. We also decided that we were willing to pay more for a daycare that has webcams and an app to keep updated.

Always the best environment for children and learning. This daycare is amazingly clean and the staff cares and loves each individual child. The safety is beyond compare and the children are so excited to come everyday.

My daughter is almost two and has been attending
Vancouver Daycare Centers Provider Name Locked
for about three months now. She and I both are very happy with her time there. The owner has maintained her pricing schedule. which is the most affordable in Freeport, while other places in town charge as much as double. My daughters linguistics, motor, and social skills have improved dramatically since she started attending. The carer to child ratio is more than adequate and the facilities are very safe and clean. Overall I have had an excellent experience with this child care facility. I recommend

to any parent looking for affordable, quality childcare. **The $213 price point is their weekly rate for my 1.5 year old. It's 46/day for part time.**
