Dear Victoria and Staff of Kids Run Around,

 We cannot thank you enough for all you have done for L______.  Her time with you was definitely the highlight of her first 24 months!  We are so excited about the possibility of her returning for your Little Big Kids program in September.

 

Love,

Kids Run Around Parent

Kids Run Around is definitely a wonderful daycare for babies and toddlers!
Our son spent more than 2 year there, staring 7 months old, and he was very very happy and we were extremely confident about the care he was receiving. The caregivers are very attentive and engaged. The rooms are very clean and tidy, and there are plenty of various toys and books.  Children do exercise and artwork several times a week, and are very proud of the pieces they bring back home. There is also a great backyard and kids spend a lot of time there as often as possible, and they enjoy the slide, the toys, gardening and water plays in summer. I found it was very important for our son to be able to be out as often as possible, to run and just be able to play outside. 
Victoria, the owner, is very attentive to parent's needs and concerns, and she makes sure parents connect to each other through parties gathering children and parents, which are great. She can also play music, which children enjoy very much. 
The daycare is also open most of bank holidays, which is really great if your workplace does not observe those days. I would with great confidence recommend this daycare to any parent looking for a nurturing environment for one's child.

Letter to Victoria

I am increasingly grateful for the people who surround my children and myself with love, compassion, tolerance, and kindness. 

 

Thank you, Victoria, for creating a safe haven for me to bring my daughter everyday, a place where she is seen and heard and valued, and for helping me to teach her that she is strong, and worthy... that her body belongs to her and no one else... and that her voice matters.  

 

I have to believe that love and tolerance and humanity will prevail over hate and fear. Thank you for helping me to believe, and thank you for creating an oasis of love for our children.

 

Much love,

Kids Run Around Parent

Subject:  Review submitted via the PSP Daycare/Preschool 2016 Survey

Comment:  1-2 years Review: My son has been at Kids Run Around since he was 4 months old. He clearly loves it there, smiles and gets excited when he sees his "teachers" every morning. They have always responded quickly to concerns, and are diligent about updating me at pick-up on how he was during the day. My husband and I are very comfortable putting our son in their care during the day--they have truly made our lives easier as parents. Advice: I know some daycares don't allow this for security reasons, but I found it extremely helpful to visit our daycare while children were there during the day. I was able to see the environment first-hand, and gauge how comfortable I felt sending my son there.

I happened to find this daycare by chance when they had an open house. I had a great first impression, and after my husband had the chance to visit the daycare to meet director Victoria and her staff, we decided to enroll our daughter. Victoria was kind enough to hold a spot for us, as we intended have our then 5-month-old, start daycare at 6 months. Since starting daycare, our daughter has thrived. She always smiles when we drop her off and she is eager to go play, learn and explore. The staff is professional, fully qualified, and more than that they are loving and attentive to each individual child needs. The daycare schedule has worked very well for our daughter, and we always get daily reports of her activities. The line of communication with Victoria and staff is excellent. Whether is via phone call, email, a quick text, or a one-on-one conversation, if you have any issue/concern to discuss, they will attend to you promptly.

  
Another thing that we love from Kids Run Around Daycare, is their outdoor space. It's a safe and fun environment where children can enjoy and learn at the same time. The ground is padded with soft mats, and besides the other yard toys, and there is a small "kids' house" for everyone to enjoy.

  

The general environment of Kids Run Around Daycare, is not just like any other daycare. It's a loving, nurturing, fun and safe environment where you know that your child will be in great hands. Enrolling your child in daycare is not an easy choice, but if you have to, whether is because you are a working parent like my husband and I, or for any other reason, you want to find the best place for your child.

  

For your child, Kids Run Around Daycare will be like a home away from home, and the staff will be like family.           –KY

Type of facility:   Private, small daycare/playschool experience run out of a person's home with a very small number of children.  Group-Family daycare with a max of 12 kids.  

   

REVIEW: Play-based philosophy; kids currently range in age from 4 months to 3.5 years. Great staff/child ratio; generally there are at least 4 adults there for a maximum of 12 kids. Ground floor and parlor floor of a brownstone; owners live upstairs. Kids all play together inside and outside (garden with toys and small playground), but there are plenty of quiet rooms for the infants to nap or play separately. Kids are fed breakfast, lunch, and snack. Very clean facility with great natural light; lots of toys and books. My kids (nearly 2 and 3.5) come home every day talking about the characters and scenarios from the books they're reading. The owner (Victoria) is lovely, warm, and passionate, and does a great job hiring caregivers with a similar attitude. They let the kids explore and be themselves.

    

Would you recommend?     Highly recommend

Would you send your child again?    Absolutely
