I really hoped this very expensive day care would be the answer to our child care needs! I visited it 6 different times to look at the infant room.

The facility is top notch... it really is wonderful. The director seemed really really great. I loved their food offerings, which I believe are healthier than most places.

But in the end I was a bit concerned about leaving my infant in the care of the infant supervisor. And if the supervisor isn't doing a good job, I'm really worried about the entire infant-area operation.

As I said I visited many times. During one of my visits a staff person escorted me back to the infant area so I could have some additional questions answered. When we went back to the room, there were several kids asleep in the room.

They have a policy that once the kids are able to stand up in the cribs, they sleep on mattresses on the floor. That makes sense I guess if you're afraid they'll climb out. However, if that's the policy they better have someone in the room with the kids at all times.

On this day there was no one in the room and one child -- looked to be about 10 months old -- was cruising along the crib area by herself. I'm sure the room was probably childproof, but it was still a hard tile floor and a child learning to walk left exploring the room on her own. It just didn't feel right to me. We sat there for 5 minutes (which of course felt like 10) looking around awkwardly for the woman that was supposed to be in the room.

Eventually the supervisor came back, hand busy with papers. She was kind of walking around the facility trying to get organizational stuff done. In fact at the time I came in she was up by the front office so I know she wasn't just one room over or something where she was able to keep an eye on the kids. She was supposed to be watching the room while someone else took a break, but it looks like she was trying to do too many things at once.

This was about mid 2010 and the woman I'm referring to has short curly hair. If the director is as good as she appeared to be, maybe the situation has been resolved.

Parents -- do your homework. Talk to other parents and be sure you stop by the facility at different times of the day to see what the environment will really be like for your child.
