What parents say about Child's Day

Parents wrote the following comments on a Parent Questionnaire:

"We are very happy with the way the teachers interact and communicate with the children. They are very good at explaining why different behaviors are appropriate or inappropriate. The best thing about Child's Day is that our daughter has been happy and content in each of the classes (she's been there for three years) she's been in and has developed an active love of learning."

"We are very pleased with Child's Day. We have every bit of confidence in the staff and care that our children have received there. The teachers are sincerely interested in the children and enjoy what they are doing and demonstrate this caring attitude and love to the children. We also feel that our children are receiving a great educational start for school."

Child's Day is the only Center I found that meets my high expectations for my daughter's needs. I go to work each day assured that her health, happiness, and growth are attended to exceptionally by her teachers."

"We moved to Austin from Dallas in August of 1996. We are extremely satisfied with Child's Day. The school is highly regarded in the community and my child's transition was very smooth. Several phone calls from the lead teacher were made to us in Dallas before moving and the teacher even mailed photos of the staff and the classroom. Quality, Safety and Cleanliness are all at Child's Day."

"We are very happy with our child's teacher's leadership of the group and her devotion to the children."

"After having one child almost complete the Child's Day program, I can say that he has enjoyed his time at the Center. He has been given many opportunities to grown and learn. The Center is exemplary. I'd recommend it to anyone. I'm looking forward to my three-month old growing and exploring at Child's Day."

"Child's Day has an excellent curriculum blending learning, discipline, structure, loving and fun."

"Overall, I am quite pleased with the school and the caliber of personnel."

"Very good program. Exceptional teachers."

"I looked at many other programs before choosing this one. I would not want my child to be in any other program. This program is exceptional both in the way it runs from a business/operational standpoint, and for a developmental standpoint and the care of the child. My observation is that rarely does a program do well at both."

"Best child development center in Austin, well-run and very well staffed by fun, happy and very qualified staff - a great environment! Thanks! The teachers are great at communicating."

"Very interactive with family and informative of programs. Excellent "extra" learning programs offered for students - Innovative and "learning" programs all the time. My child "loves" the school!"

"Wonderful staff. Very caring, loving and understanding."

"The teachers and staff of Child's Day are wonderful! We have been very pleased with their enthusiasm and expertise."

"This is the absolute best day care in Austin. I am confident my children's needs are being met and that they receive the love and care needed to ensure they are happy and healthy."

"I would not be satisfied with my children at any other school. I take great pride in knowing my children truly loved and appreciated by their teachers. I know several teachers who have been employed at the school for 6 - 8 years. This fact speaks for itself when questioning the commitment of the staff. It gives me comfort beyond belief to see my children (ages 3 - 9) having positive relationships with truly committed teachers. My five-year-old and three-year-old both had the same teacher my nine year old had when he was 1 ½! At present, my five year old has the same teacher and assistant teacher who taught my son when he was five. I feel certain this is not a common occurrence in most preschool settings. I am certain this occurs at Child's Day because of the high expectations of the staff and the management, and their commitment to the children and to the parents."

"The teachers hired to work at Child's Day are all very talented, loving people. We feel our child is in very good hands."
