Daycare Center reviews in Fredericksburg

    Callahan Learning Center
    Callahan Learning Center has provided excellent service. The staff is extremely responsive and fully willing to work with me as the parent for my child's well-being. They are extremely proactive in regards to working on behavior and creating a strong learning environment to include emotional development. Another thing I like about Callahan is that they continue to provide service early in the morning, which is something that other child care providers did not. The environment balances technology, early development, reading, and outdoor play well.

    Callahan Learning Center
    Excellent! We can't say enough praises for this daycare. Accidents happen and we immediately got a phone call. They noticed injuries that weren't reported to us by the school and pointed them out to us. The hours are great for people who don't work a standard 9-5. We have recommended lots of friends and family here.

    Children Of America Fredericksburg Deacon Road
    Love my kids but this was not the spot for us. Hopefully this review will help someone else not to make the same mistake we did!After joining in the summer, we were charged a full "activity fee" although there were only 3 weeks of Summer left and should have been prorated. From there the issues just continued. The cameras were inconsistent, my toddler often went outside with no jacket and kept a runny nose. 3 Managers in 2 months and counting, lack of structure and unreasonable fees. Finances go through the corporate office located in Florida. Rate agreements fluctuate based on what corporate feels is appropriate and just 4 months after joining, they decided to suddenly raise the rates. Why? The reason provided was to "assist in the offset of increased operating costs. These operating costs include increase in rents, utilities, increase of minimum wage, and the incremental cost associated with complying with the Affordable Health Care Act. Existing families' tuition will increase 4.0% from the amount they are currently paying." Multiple violations with Dept. of Social services- most recently for leaving out cleaning products in a Pre-k room (check for yourself). We ended up leaving the facility after 3.5 months. Sanity and peace of mind is priceless. Keep yours and don't go here! Save your time and money- go to the YMCA.

    Creative Child Care
    BEWARE OF THIS DAYCARE!!! 
    Before I go through my experience with them, please take a minute to
    review the following inspection websites that have found numerous violations on
    them and then compare them to the surrounding daycares in the area and you will
    see why  they have such low prices and
    low enrollment.  Also check out the
    reviews and violations on their other center in Tidewater and you will see that
    they are consistent with their low standards across the board.

     As far as our
    experience goes it was horrible.  My wife
    and I were lured in by their low prices and small class sizes.  After having our 3 year old son in their care
    we decided to pull him out after 2 weeks and put him in a more expensive and
    responsible day care.  One day when we
    went to pick him up they had just come in from the outdoors, and all the kids
    faces were beat red because it was about 12 degrees outside.  This was the first red flag, then another day
    we came to pick him up he was outside playing with a gate trying to leave and
    the daycare didn?t seem to mind.  Every time
    we go there the caregivers all look disengaged like they would rather be
    anywhere but there.  The saddest thing
    about it was that he used to come home singing songs and talking about all of
    the things he learned but after being at this place for a week all he knew was
    how to say ?no? and ?I don?t want to?. 
    So we decided to tell them on a Friday that he would not be returning
    the following week.  They to this day
    have never asked why.  All they wanted to
    ask for was money from us because we didn?t give them two weeks notice.  They were more concerned with making money
    for care that our son wasn?t even there for  then to know why parents are leaving them for
    better daycare.  All they care about is
    money and not the kids they are supposed to care for.  If you are considering using their services I
    would strongly recommend that you spend the extra $20-$30 a week somewhere else
    for your kid?s safety.

    The Learning Experience
    My pre-toddler only attends part-time.  I was most impressed by The Learning Experience, especially when I compared it (the staff, facility cleanliness, happiness of kiddos) to other places in Fredericksburg.  My wee one has only been there a week, and she is still adjusting, but the teachers and directors are very nice and loving and are working with her.  There is a video monitor in the director's office, I just wish parents could watch the kiddos via a secure connection online.  Perhaps one day.  Also, this place is very clean.

    KIDS STATION
    I went for a tour and was utterly unimpressed. The infant areas (playroom, refrigerator, sleeping areas) appeared unkempt and the toddler room was smelly. The staff was nice enough, but I could not see leaving my baby there. The cost (no, I am not a Mary Washington employee) did not seem to fit the services provided. Perhaps I went on a bad day? But this was my experience. I selected The Learning Experience off of exit 133 for my pre-toddler.

    Minnieland Academy - Salem Fields
    All of the experiences we have had with Minnieland Academy have been great. The people that work their are very kind and you can tell they really care about their job. I feel safe knowing my brother is in their care during the day. Plus, he really seems to like it which is also very important. I'm glad we found this place for him, I would recommend it to anybody.

    Minnieland Academy - Salem Fields
    Minnieland Academy is a wonderful daycare. The staff is great and all of them that I have met seem genuinely nice and happy to be there. I feel very happy and safe knowing my sister is here during the day. I know she is being taken care of and she always has fun stories to tell about her day.

    KIDS STATION
    I am not a Mary Washginton Healthcare employee so I am paying the unsubsidized rate, which is definitely on the upper end for this area. That having been said, I also visited three locations of a national day care provider and of a regional provider, and one location of a second national provider before deciding to grit my teeth at the expense and send my son here. Kids Station was qualitatively different from every other center I had seen (including my second choice, which was itself head and shoulders above everything else I had seen). The space was large and uncluttered even though the room contains ample equipment; every single adult uses correct grammar; the cushions set up on the floor are not arranged so that the children are confined, so the adults have to keep an active eye on the kids; the only adult seats in the room are rocking chairs, which I have seen used only by nursing mothers and by staff bottle-feeding infants, and staff are often on the floor with the infants; any music that plays is unobtrusive. The list goes on and on.

    So far, Callahan has exceeded expectation and we are happy with changes and upgrades they have done. Our son really enjoys going here!
