#Bestdaycarever! Nov 11, 2018
I have used this provider for more than 6 months

 

 

Newer Daycare (opened in 2016) - very clean with updated furniture and toys

Caring Staff- they work tirelessly and treat your child like their own 

A Daycare That Is Licensed To Administer Medication! This is huge for parents of children with allergies/asthma; Be Forewarned!- not all daycares can administer medication- we had to switch daycares when we found out our child at 16 months had significant food allergies, and the old daycare couldn’t administer medication!

Diverse- there are families and staff members from various ethnicities, nationalities, religions, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds...a true melting pot of a daycare!

Creative Curriculum- your child will be learning while singing, dancing, creating art, coupled with traditional circle time activities and seat work (when age appropriate)- all in preparation for your child to embark on his/her educational quest in kindergarten and beyond; your child will learn how to be a good friend, how to share, how to use the bathroom independently (the tiny toilets are adorable!), how to follow directions, and all of the educational prerequisites needed to be successful by the time kindergarten rolls around

Meals/Snacks Are Offered; if your family is vegetarian- no problem!  Vegetarian meals are also offered.  If you choose to send food for your child (we do because of food allergies) that’s an option as well.

State of the Art (Smartboard, iPads, fingerprint identification system in order to gain entrance to the daycare, Tadpoles App provides daily reports, the ability to send drop-off notes to the teachers, and photos of your child engaging in various activities at the daycare; Parent View is also available (extra monthly fee) where you can watch your child on camera in his/her classroom, in the multipurpose room, and outside on the playground; air ventilation system- no need to worry about pollen or other irritants from the outside when indoors

Newer Enclosed Playground with a protective roof covering and turf instead of grass- great for children with sensitive skin and environmental allergies

Activities/Events Galore- there are several activities that take place each month- parents/families are welcome to attend special events such as Halloween Parades, Holiday Parties, Gingerbread House Making, Month of the Young Child, etc.  There are also nights where you can leave your child after-hours (for an extra fee), so you can have a date-night or go holiday shopping, knowing that your child is in good hands.

Soccer Shots- this program is available to children age 3 and up; it comes to the daycare and runs for six-week sessions...you don’t have to worry about the stress of getting your little one to soccer practice on time and you can watch your child playing on Parent View!

A Daycare That Gives Back- throughout the year collections are made to help other families locally and beyond that are in need- food collections for the holidays; backpacks that are filled with items for infants/young children that are victims of natural disasters- the daycare teaches children the importance of community and charity from the onset

Friendly Parents/Families- the vast majority of the parents are friendly...you can smile and say “Hello” and you will get a greeting in return.  

* Please don’t just read the reviews.  I suggest that you go and visit Lightbridge Academy in Baldwin yourself. Talk to the staff and families.  Then you will truly be able to ascertain if it’s the right fit for your family.  I know that it’s the right fit for my family as well as many others, since the daycare is filled with blossoming children in each classroom.  Best wishes on your search for a great daycare!
