day care recommendations?
by Melody Lee on April 14th, 2011

thank you so much -- everyone -- for the recommendations! i was most overwhelmed by where to start and your input has been immensely helpful. i'm signed up for tours at several places and on waiting lists for a couple already, but it's really nice to know that there is such an extensive list nearby. i personally don't really care if the day care is attached or not attached to a church, or how the facilities look (as long as they're safe and clean); i'm most worried about having a really hands-on, nurturing environment for the kiddo. other things are perks, for sure, but that's really been my and my husband's priority.

Hi,
I wanted to add another recommendation to the list. Our son (13 months old) has been attending Green Sprout preschool ( http://www.greensproutpreschool.com/) since he was 5 months old and has loved it since day one. It is an incredibly child centered, attachment focused, nurturing school. The teachers have all been wonderful and he has had such a good experience there. It is also very close to Mueller. Please PM me with any questions.

Another lovely preschool in Cherrywood is Open Door Preschool. They've been around for 35 years and are located in the back of Asbury United Methodist Church. They take infants and there are several of us in the neighborhood who send our kids there. I LOVE it. Lots of the teachers have been around for years and years which demonstrates to me not only their love of the work but the real family atmosphere of the place. I am constantly amazed at the creative learning opportunities they put together for my 3 year old and my youngest son still goes nuts when he sees his teacher from the baby room, even though he has moved up now. They are also opening up a brand new school near the train station at MLK. So if you you know how hard it is to find an infant placement, this could be really helpful! - Torie

Our son also goes to Green Sprout! :) He is 3.5 yrs old. We had him in the Children's Courtyard on Spicewood when he was a baby and they went through a period of high turn over and we were really unhappy. Children's Courtyard is a big daycare. After that we had a nanny for a little over a year, and now he's in Green Sprout. Green Sprout is great. The teachers are wonderful; they are very caring and involved with the kids. We're so happy he's at Green Sprout!

Good luck!

Carrie

I know this post hasn't been active for a while, but I thought some people might be interested. You can search for daycares and see what, if any, infractions they have against them. We were thinking of switching our child's daycare, but after looking at this website, decided not to.
