My oldest originally started out at my work's daycare which I must admit I did not research. The place was emaculate, polished, new, and expensive, so of course it had to be the best. I learned quickly that looks weren't everything. They combined infants from 2-12 months in the same room, and researching their incidents on the TX DFPS site I found a few disturbing complaints, like mixing up breastmilk. The parents dropping off their children were incredibly polite, holding the door open for others entering the daycare which is great except that this was supposed to be a secure entry with id card swipe required. They were letting anyone in and the personnel at the desk weren't questioning anyone! Shame on me for not doing my research.
We immediately started researching a replacement daycare, preferably in the medical center. I sent my husband to check out multiple daycares while I was working. He was surprised at how many let him in and gave him the tour without asking who he was. This one stood out because the moment he walked in they immediately asked who he was and what he was doing there. Be rude! Seriously, I'd rather you be rude and stop people from coming in if that is my child in there that you are protecting. That was a huge plus. The only incidents I found on them were few and far between, minor paperwork issues. The only complaint I had was that they had no internet site - which was difficult for me being a computer nerd, so I actually had to detach from my computer and physically go down to check them out but so glad I did.
Now more than 3 years later I still feel we made the best choice. As we enter and leave the building, every teacher there knows my kids by name. My 3 1/2 yr old daughter loved the daily swim classes throughout the summer and currently participates in the on-site dance, karate, and Spanish classes. My 2yr old won’t let us leave the building without stopping to hug every teacher she comes across. There is a large shaded carport area for bad weather drop-off and pick-ups. And my coworkers who also used this daycare for their kids rave all the time about how advanced their children were when they moved on to elementary school. The topping on the cake was that this was actually one of the cheapest priced daycares we checked out. An amazing bargain for the sense of security they provide us. If you can overlook a few old toys (see older reviews), it's definitely worth it to check this place out.
