We looked at Leap N Learn, the director was really nice and it was definitely affordable, but just didn't feel like it would be a good fit. We were looking for a place where she would get a lot of individualized attention and the opportunity to explore and learn in a nurturing environment. We decided on Sandpiper Child Care, they're small, I think total capacity was 20 kids or so, they have an amazing brand-new playground and outside play space and plenty of indoor space for the kids. Our daughter LOVES it there. Prior to moving to Scarborough she attended a great center which cost almost $80 more a week. We liked it and she seemed happy there, but nothing compare to now. When I drop her off in the morning, she says "Okay mama, you go now, buh-bye." I think that is a huge testament to how much she enjoys her time there. I'm grateful to have such a great place to take care of her.
Also in the Scarborough area we looked at Creative Beginnings, which I thought seemed really chaotic and unorganized. For a toddler, it seemed like the layout and the noise level during the day would be overwhelming. We planned on looking at Heidi's house but a co-worker, who has experience working in child care centers, discouraged it. I looked at the Toddle-Inn website, and I may be nit-picking, but they had a huge error on their website on the page with the description of infant and toddler care. It's probably not indicative of the care they provide, but a bad first impression none the less.
I hope this info helps. Day Care searching can be really stressful. Happy hunting!
