I saw you are looking for a daycare for those beautiful kids of yours. Let me tell you I have seen and heard lots of stories about other daycares both good and bad. I don't know if you know this about me but I rarely endorse anything, so when I do find something worthy I feel like I have to tell everyone about it. Lifespan Development Centers at Red Clay Creek has been such an inspiration to me and my family. Just like you I am a very hands on parent and like to have piece of mind when I'm at work or at home that my children are experiencing more than just babysitting. My son Weston (4yrs) has been at that location since the beginning since he was 3 months old. Without fabrication he was performing sign language and his speech and manners soared very quickly. My daughter (1 1/2) started at 10 months and the progress she has made since she started in March is unbelievable.
They say not to compare your children's progress to one another but it's hard for us not to. When I was worried that Juliena wasn't talking early enough for her my expectations and voiced my concerns openly with my family and staff there, it was the teachers and staff at Lifespan who assured me that she was ahead of her level and I had nothing to worry about. The only worry I was left with was how much further along would she be had I started her early like her brother. I could go on and on. But between the energetic and experienced staff to the many school functions, parades, parties and school plays, I would make the decision 100 times over to send my children there if I had to do it again. Lifespan makes you feel like family from the start, and I hope that you, Jess and your family at least take a tour. You'll see what I'm talking about.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Lifespan Development Centers. As a nervous first time mom, I think I visited every child care facility in Delaware prior to my son being born! I was in over my head and wasn't sure what I was looking for during the visits. When I walked into Lifespan, I instantly knew it was everything I wanted and more! Tricia and her staff answered all of my questions, the environment was so friendly and welcoming and the kids were so happy and obviously well loved. I ended up spending over 2 hours at the facility during my tour because we had so much fun. One of the many factors that set Lifespan apart for me was the attentiveness that they gave my son from the moment we walked in. It was very important to me that my son was going to be loved at the facility of our choosing since he would be spending about 50 hours a week there - that has been the case since day 1! I am able to go to work every day knowing that my son is happy, loved, having a ton of fun and learning so much (even as an infant). I feel that the teachers and staff are partnering with my husband and I to help raise my son and ensure that all of his needs are met or exceeded each day. I have the ability to call/text to check in on my son as often as I like and never feel like a bother. We are so happy that we have found Lifespan and will definitely be "lifers!"
