My children have been attending the Redmond Community Child Care center for over a year now, and we've all been very happy. My preschooler gets to visit my infant, which gives them both a sense of family beyond the friends and teachers they've met there. The staff has been wonderful, and my preschooler has made amazing progress in learning her letters and numbers! I read a blog recently by a mother asking how she can find emergency care quickly for the times that her in-home care provider has the flu. Use a center! When some of the staff get sick they always enough to cover the other shifts. Besides, I feel better having many adults around, for those days that an individual may be a little down or off.
