My 1-year-old daughter has been enrolled in Carmen’s Pride and Joy on 23rd Place NE for the past month and Carmen and her team have been nothing short but amazing! I am writing a recommendation because it is a new day care (she opened her doors in January) so they still have open slots available for both babies and toddlers. The main teacher, Ms. Banks, has a clear passion and love for children. She always sends my husband and I pictures and truly cares for our daughter as if she was her own. My daughter receives breakfast, lunch and a snack at the facility in which the team makes from scratch. My husband and I receive daily texts of our daughter eating, playing, napping which is much appreciated. We receive a daily report of all of the activities done throughout the day, including meal and nap times. This is our daughter’s first experience in a daycare facility (previously had a nanny), so I was worried about the adjustment, but she smiles every time we drop her off in the morning and is clearly excited and comfortable with the staff. The hours of the facility are 7am-6pm and it is 5 days a week with drop in care options. See the website link below for more details.
