As new parents, one of the biggest concerns my wife and I had was what to do about daycare. We’re both full-time employees and were going to have to return to work soon, so this was a pretty important decision for the two of us. We checked out some local places and most of them were met with the feeling of “this is fine, I guess,” but nothing really clicked. After getting the tour of Excelled, my wife and I knew it was the place for our kiddo. The staff really care about the kids there and take time to know all of them, even if they’re not the person assigned to a specific class. Everyone is very hands-on, not just the teachers; it’s not uncommon to walk in and find the administrative team spending time with the kids too. We get regular updates and pictures during the day so we know when she’s eating, playing, and napping. If baby has a doctor’s appointment, the team checks in to make sure she’s ok and if there’s anything they need to keep tabs on. And it’s a really good feeling when I pick the baby up or drop her off that everyone says hi and bye to her before they say anything to me – she’s the priority there, as she should be. We have no complaints at all and are glad our kid is in good hands. If you’re at all curious, ask for a tour and get a feel for the team and the atmosphere. It’s worth the time.
