RIP OFF!!! They are one of the most expensive day care centers in Charlottesville and dont even provide lunch. There is no kitchen so you must bring food that can stay cold in a lunch bag. They tend to take more days off then any other center (but you still pay full price) You can come in the morning with your hands full and most of the teachers wil just look at you and never offer to help. If you have to bring your child in past 9 am getting ready to catch grief or a dirty look. It seems to me they act like they are doing you a favor and they forget that we are paying them to do this. My advice there are plenty of good centers in this area for a lower price and provide lunch. Best of luck
We are so grateful to Our Neighborhood for the loving, thoughtful, and extremely competent care they provide for our daughter. She has been there since she was six months old and we could not be happier. The staff thinks carefully about how to nurture young childrens development and they are constantly fostering continued learning among the staff and sharing findings and ideas with parents. And the teachers are the warmest, most loving people you can imagine. The center has a strong philosophical approach and, even more importantly, a loving basis for all they do.
BEWARE!! This daycare has had six violations out of ten inspections since 2011. Check out the Department of Social Services website to view violations including improper TB screenings, failure to complete background checks before employment, and improper diapering procedures. This place is an obstacle course of disasters waiting to happen. Dont buy the company line about children doing for themselves. And, NAEYC, shame on you for certifying them!
