A great "full-service" daycare center is Robin's Nest. This is not a chain, rather it is owned by a family with five of their own children. There are two sites (within blocks of eachother): one for infants and younger toddlers and another for older toddlers and school-age. This fully-licensed center is open 6am-6pm and offers drop-in daycare as well. The rates are phenomenol considering the interaction with the children. This is clearly a learning center with classrooms, computer room, and great playground equipment to boot. Kids have ample time to play and learn. The staff is exceptional and they know all kids by name, even though the center is huge! The summer program for school-age kids is unmatched by other daycare centers. A bus and two vans transport the kids to a variety of activities, including roller skating, swimming, plays, amusement parks, etc. My children are never bored during the summer and have actually never been busier. I was referred by friends to this center and I, in turn, have done the same many times over. If you're looking for a daycare center that is different because they actually care about the children, check it out!
