Dover Day Care Center 5

My sons have been attending Dover Children's Center for two years now (one for full tiem day care and one for after school/vacations) and I can't speak highly enough of it! The teachers are always friendly and professional, my children run to see them. The center is always clean (I honestly don't know what the reviewer who said otherwise saw). The kids are always well cared for and I am shocked at how much my younger son has learned.

My daughter has been attending here for a year. The staff is always very professional and very caring. My daughter knows all her teachers by name and is excited to see them. I have never witnessed the unclean facility that one of the reviewers spoke about. As a parent with multiple children I have see many childcare facilities and this one is the best. I know that my daughter is getting indiviual attention , unlike the larger facilities that have rows of baby swings.

My daughter went here for almost a year while I was working full time. I think one of the main reasons I liked it so much were because of one of the "teachers" in her room... she was in the infant room. This teacher was really great with the kids and had great communication with us. A month or so before turning one, my daughter was moved into the one year old room... and she did sustain a major accident at the daycare. I think part of this is because I don't feel she was watched as closely as a one year old should be watched and because she was moved out of the infant room prematurely. Other than that, overall it was a decent place to take my daughter. Now that I have experienced being a stay at home mom and taking care of her the way I would want, I could never send any of my kids back to daycare!

Previous review was based on a one time, short visit. My husband and I spent months looking for a daycare provider. We interviewed parents, staff members and administration prior to making unannounced visits to the facility. We observed the staff and the children on several occasions at different times of the day prior to making our decision. Our son has been well cared for and enjoys the center. He is clean, well fed and educationally stimulated....(just a few examples)

This is 1 school Idecided to tour before ultimately making the decision 2put my son in a different daycare.Im glad I did not sign him up for this place. When I went in 4 a tour,the kids were running andscreaming.Skipping around the "cafeteria" area with absolutely no self control.There were open containers of food + bags of opened bread while flies were traveling around theroom. I was first given tour the infant room, where I walked in + almost stepped on the tiniest baby I've ever seen.I could not believe she was just put on the floor next to the doorway. She was the only infant in there (Gee, I wonder why?) and there were no educational/mentally stimulating toys for her to play with-only a few bright colored baby toys. Next room went into was for older children,which smelled like P. This place is not clean at all.Do not expect to walk into an educational, bright colored, stimulating center.The children in the room I went in were having"nap time"+was still VERY LOUD.I honestly have no idea how theywere sleeping through allthe noise from the other children.As soon as I left thecenter, It was a breath of fresh air (literally). If you are smart, you will not send your children here.
