I have used this provider for less than 6 months

After being turned down by 12 daycares bcuz of my son's level of care I was in utter devastation. He is disabled, but VERY much like other kids. The playing field accepted him and have coordinated care for him like I never imagined possible. They truly habe the child's best interest at heart every day. It's the hardest thing you can do to put your hands in someone else's care, especially if you were abused as a child. I trust this facility whole heartedly. The women who run this place are truly amazing. One of a kind.

Our child has attended The Playing Field for the last two years( from age 6 weeks to two year's old). Our child has had a fantastic experience at The Playing Field. The staff and leadership team are exceptionally professional. The facility has improved tremendously since it opened in 2015. There are lots of books and stimulating toys and exercise options. It is clean and well organized. In particular, the teachers and support staff are caring and nourishing for each child. Look at their Mission Statement on their website. They live up to their Mission to provide quality early childhood education to an economically diverse group of children. It has my highest respect.
