Garden of Learning Day Care Reviews
I am the father of twin 3 (and a 1/2) year old girls. This month has been their first "schooling" experience. It has been a new experience for me as well, as a stay at home Dad since 2009. We (Mommy and me) looked at many options. Though cost and location were factors, they were secondary. Our search was for the best and most realistic options for our girls. I visited close to 10 and researched several more.
My girls come home excited to tell me what they have learned and about their adventures with their new friends. It has been a much easier transition than I ever could have imagined. I love spending time with my girls and was a bit hesitant to "pay someone else to watch MY kids”. Now I see how selfish it would have been to have kept this learning experience from them.
The Garden of learning is perfect. It is cleaner than anywhere else we visited. They learn and play in a natural environment with organic snacks. Scotia's (Ms. Scotia) expertise and experience show through my girls in less than 2 months of attendance. Though I constantly try to offer my girls learning experiences, I can't compete with Scotia. That's O.K. I raise them to be good girls and leave most of the "teaching" to Scotia.
We narrowed our choices down to two pre-schools. The Garden of Learning happened to be the closest to us but is easily accessible to anyone in the area, as it is but a couple of minutes from 15 and Rosemont. In addition (or subtraction) it was more than $500 a month cheaper for us. We get reports every day, there care is so hands on and there is open communication. I can't imagine a better situation.
