Daycare Center reviews in Baltimore

Real People ~ Real Reviews ~ Real Results

  • Things they excel at:
    1. Daily sheets outlining how the day went
    2. Never had a diaper rash issue or serious boo-boo issue
    3. Homework assignments for the toddler class are reasonable. My daughter could identify several letters of the alphabet/ identify colors at 18 months.
    4. Free breakfast, lunch and snack which are decent for kiddos that eat solids, although my child is a very picky eater.
    5. Great price for the location, especially for people working at JHH (5 min drive, even at rush hr), or people who use the I83.
    6. Closes at 6 PM, which is later than a lot of the daycares in the city
    7. Date night once per month on Fridays, only $20 and they will keep your kiddo until 11 PM.
    8. Enclosed playground on the premises
    Things are are reasonable (neutral):
    1. Cleanliness. I can see a good effort is made to keep the place clean. Their Provider name locked. about shoe covers for the infant rooms are not strictly enforced however I see them vacuming/mopping regularly.
     2. Teacher quality: Several times I recieve notes from the teachers with incorrect spelling and grammar. They do not have professional early childhood education degrees (although the person who runs the center has one I think). Also, although they say they have a lesson plan for the infant rooms, as far as I can tell there really isn't one that is adhered to until the toddler room. I'm ok with it because (1) how much education do you really need to teach the basic ABC's at that age, and (2) they have required teacher training that is held I think about twice a year. I feel like at the end of the day my child is well cared for by loving people.
    3. Staffing: Generally they keep ratio of teacher:child 1:3 in infant rooms and 1:6 for toddler room. However there may occasionally be short times during the day (eg drop off time) where it may just be one person and multiple children. Regarding turnover, Two of her infant teachers left while she was in that room (< 1 yr, effectively complete turnover). It is my understanding that in general however there are several teachers that have been with them for many years, and some of the turnover may have been due to the move to the new location.
    Things they could potentially improve:
    1. They charge a really high fee if you want to pay by credit card, and they do not have direct deposit. Which means that you have to remember to pay by check every 2 weeks. And if you forget you get a late fee, no reminders. However, I am glad they let us have the option of paying by check rather than automatically rolling the credit card fee into everyone's tuition.
    2. They do use television at times for the toddlers (even under 2 yrs). I have walked in a few times after 5 PM and it was on Sesame street. Never seen any non-educational programs though. Another saving grace is there is no TV in the infant rooms.
    3. I get the feeling they do not go out much when it's cold...which means wintertime it's pretty much all indoors.
    4. They will occasionally have fieldtrips which require that you provide a chaperone for the children under 2 yrs; and if you are unable to provide a chaperone they will close the infant room. Effectively means that you will occasioanally be stuck looking for backup care more often that the "scheduled" closings for holidays/teacher training; or you have to take time off work. This happened about twice during the past year.
