I have been sending my son to Friends Childcare for a little bit over a year now. I can't say enough wonderful things about the school. The teachers are educated and caring and the curriculum is wonderful and stimulating. I always feel that my son is safe and well taken care of at Friends. The administration is wonderful and I continue to be a very happy parent sending my son to Friends. I would recommend this school to anyone.

Today, I found a 3 year old student of Friends Childcare left at the park by herself.

Brookline health department engaged in the situation and would have more information, but I thought parents researching the center should be aware.

You will often find that there is a high turn over of teachers at both locations. Parents may see great teachers, but they do not see they inside story of management/CEO. I am a former employee of Friends Childcare, and because I have worked there for several years and know the politics behind the CEO, I would never support a childcare center as this one.
You will often see teachers are unhappy and not because of the families/parents/children but as a respected child care educator, they are not respected from upper management.
friends promote a lot of promise, but you will see that they are not fulfilled! CEO/management lacks many skills, which reflects on the high turn over rate.
Yes, your child comes home happy and safe, but do you really know what takes place during the day? Do you really know what your child's teachers have face? Do you really know how invaluable they feel with the pay/salary, and how they are talked to?
Why support a center of such?

My son went here for about a year and a half, as a preschooler. He always came home safe and happy, which is the most important measure of any childcare.

The center is clean, modern, and innovative. It's conveniently located across the street from a great playground, so the kids have good outdoor play. The families are very diverse in terms of race, national origin and sexual orientation. The place has a very international feeling. The teachers are mostly very good. Mercedes in the infant room is WONDERFUL with the babies.

The one drawback is the teacher turnover. For some reason, teachers don't stay long at this center. They hire good teachers, but can't always keep them.

As a new mom, I was a little hesitant to place my baby in childcare, but I've had an excellent experience at this center. The indoor space is somewhat limited (compared to other centers I visited that are further away from the city), but the staff working there makes up for it!!! You can easily tell that the staff is knowledgeable and experienced, and the most important part is that all the kids are really happy. Everyone, the staff and the managers, have been very helpful in easing this transition. I would recommend this place to anybody looking for childcare in Brookline.
