My 9 year old daughter attended SMCDC when she was younger and now her little sister is here, so there was no question we were coming back!! It is great to be back and see the tea...

Worst

I would not recommend this daycare, the rooms are age inappropriate, the place is unsanitary and my child has had multiple injuries due to neglect. They have children under 1 yea...

Worry free for a Mom!! 8/2/2011

My 9 year old daughter attended SMCDC when she was younger and now her little sister is here, so there was no question we were coming back!! It is great to be back and see the teachers we fell in love with years ago!! One of the best things, being a Mom, is knowing that I can go to work and not worry about who is caring for my child, because the staff at this school is wonderful! The owner, Kristen, is one of the strongest, kindest and caring women I know and, hands down, one of the greatest mother's I have been fortunate enough to know!! She takes her mothering skills to school with her and expects the same of the other teachers. My 18 month old daughter already identifies colors and shapes and has greatly benefited from the teachers here. I highly recommend SMCDC as the first choice of daycare/preschool, no doubt!! more

SMCDC - the next best place to being at home 5/13/2011

Citysearch: SMCDC is the second child care/ pre-school facility my daughter has been enrolled in. She will remain here until it’s time for her to go to kindergarten! She has been attending for 18 months. I love the size of this place, the attentiveness of the teachers, the fact that every teacher, at the very least, has sight recognition of my daughter and of me (eventually all the teachers know all the children by name). The owner/director Kristin cares deeply about my daughter, and the other children. Kristin is on-site most of the time. In August, the last day before kindergarten begins, Kristin celebrates the graduation of the children to kindergarten, but she is truly sad to say goodbye to the day-to-day relationship with the kids. Then on the next Monday, she turns around and opens her heart to the next batch of kids. The size of SMCDC allows for some flexibility and versatility in schedules. My daughter is not just another head in the room. Her individuality is celebrated and appreciated. At age three she’s writing letters and knows the difference between objects such as hexagons and octagons. I’ve witnessed her creativity blossom and knowledge base grow leaps and bounds this past year. In addition, when I pick her up, I’ve learned to appreciate her end of the day pleas to stay and play with her friends. She also looks forward to going to school in the mornings. The entire staff works diligently to maintain a healthy environment. While the children nap the teachers are busy cleaning toys and surfaces. During and after breakfast tables and chairs are wiped down to clean up spills and other eating incidents and to maintain a clean place for the children to eat. In the late evenings, when I pick up my daughter, staff is methodically cleaning rooms in preparation for the next day. My daughter’s frequency of pre-school acquired illness has decreased significantly since enrolling at SMCDC. Twice Kristin has alerted the school to possbile health concern outbreaks (virus type things) which enabled me to take some extra precaution and prevent my daughter from being affected by the outbreak. Additionally staff ramped up the already meticulous cleaning practices. There is a mixture of teachers with long years of child care experience and younger teachers with less experience. The less experienced teachers are not left on their own with the children until they are adequately trained. Regardless of their experience level, the teachers always have time for me as a parent, sharing concerns and observations of my daughter, and listening to me. They also welcome parent participation when my work life permits me to participate. My life is crazy busy, working two jobs. I would much rather be at home raising my daughter. However, since I cannot be, my life is made better knowing she is in the excellent care of SMCDC. If we are blessed with another child, SMCDC will be our choice of care for that child also. more

The absolute best, quality preschool!!! 5/9/2011

My four children attended St. Matthews CDC and Preschool. The teachers are amazing. They are well educated (Bachelor's and Master's degrees!), well-trained and knowledgeable in the field of childcare. They are loving, caring professionals. My children were always happy to get there every morning and sad to leave at the end of the day. I was amazed at how clean the school is. Teachers are always finding time to listen to me and more importantly to my children. I would highly recommend this preschool to anyone looking for the BEST! more

He loves it! 5/9/2011

I decided to send my son to St. Matthews CDC after relocating from Texas. My son, 18 mths old at the time, had never been in a day care setting, so I was anxious to say the least. It turned out to be a great decision! He loves it. He is learning so much, and the teachers are awesome. They really seem to care about him and his development. The owner, Kristen, is always on site and available if needed. I couldn't be more thrilled! more

Wouldn't recommend 3/23/2011

I would not recommend this daycare, the rooms are age inappropriate, the place is unsanitary and my child has had multiple injuries due to neglect. They have children under 1 year of age in rooms with toddlers and in inappropriate seating where I have seen the babies fall out of their chairs and no accident reports were written up to the parents. My child had a golf ball size lump on her forehead from falling in her room which was a very small room and she fell and hit her head on the window while her teacher was holding her. There is also very unprofessional gossip and rumors and personal information that is being passed around the daycare which I addressed and found out that it has happened before. I would not feel safe leaving my child with anyone in this daycare and my child was constantly getting sick from the daycare and their poor, unsanitary conditions. more
