We love CDA!

“We couldn’t be happier with the care and instruction Madeline is receiving in the toddler room. She is learning so much! The young toddler teacher Jen (who I can’t say enough positive things about) did an amazing job with the transition from infant to toddler. She taught her so many things that wouldn’t have occurred to me (e.g., how to dance and jump). She also patiently helped her learn to sit in a chair, use a cup, and say her name. I think the formal transition period between infant and toddler is a huge strength of the CDA program!

Now that she is in the toddler room I notice new words every day. I try to work on colors, body parts, and counting with Madeline each day and I am constantly amazed at how much she has already learned at CDA. I also love hearing my daughter request songs and demonstrate the actions that accompany them. I appreciate Laurie’s expertise and structured learning environment. She clearly puts a lot of effort into curriculum development. I think CDA also does a great job incorporating activity (e.g., playground, sandbox, water play). They are also diligent about safety and sunscreen which puts my mind at ease. A couple of the teachers even offered me very helpful advice for her mild eczema. They clearly care about the kiddos in their care and we are so grateful for this great learning environment.”

Great!

“It is amazing to see how excited our son is to go to school every day! We love the way his teachers interact with him and to hear about all of the activities in which he partiticpates all day. The teachers all welcome him and engage with him from the moment he enters the room. It is very clear he is loved and valued at CDA – and we love them!”

Loving daycare!

“We are so happy with our experience at Children’s Discovery Academy! Our son is only 9 months old, but we can tell he absolutely loves daycare. The teachers are great and send pictures throughout the day so we can see all the fun things he is doing. They document everything in real time (via an app on our phones) so we know when (and what) he eats, when he sleeps, when he has diaper changes and more. I feel 100% comfortable leaving my son at daycare each day and at times when I pick him up, he reaches back for his teachers because he absolutely adores them!”

CDA Can’t be beat!

“My almost 4 year old son started daycare when he was about 16 months and has been in it off and on ever since. It took a couple of different places to find the “right” care for our son. My family has felt like the Care at CDA can’t be matched anywhere else. The attention to families and the children is so refreshing to see and makes you feel your child is in great hands as a working parent. Our once very shy child has developed into an outgoing, playful preschooler with the help of CDA staff. We would recommend CDA to any family in need of great care!”
