I love this place!
The hunt for a great daycare for our little baby took us down many twists and turns, and no place had all the ''boxes'' checked off on the things we wanted in a daycare. But when we left Alameda Bilingual daycare after meeting Margot, my significant other said, ''This is the one!''
The Director, Margot, met us on a Sunday and gave us a detailed tour of the facilities and the daily schedule. We were looking for 1) Clean, 2) Nurturing, 3) Structured learning, and bilingual was a bonus. Other places had one or the other but not all three of our priorities! I feel like he will get a good mix of nurturing, education and culture at Alameda Bilingual!
The space: hardwood floors, separate rooms (front, back, bathroom, kitchen, special baby nap room). Cubbies with each kid's name on it. Files for each kid's artwork. Nicely decorated. Good amount of toys, good lighting. Awesome backyard with swing set! On our first day, I felt so cared for because they revamped the baby nap room to cater to my little baby, bright rug, etc.
Location: across from park, close to freeway (not a bunch of side streets)!
The staff: Great group of women! Don't have to worry about baby being left with an overwhelmed staff. They are so friendly and really enjoy interacting with my baby!
Happy, intelligent, knowledgeable, caring, organized. Margot is super cool, and I
admire her for creating such a great atmosphere and bringing together a great staff.
Good business woman, good role model for my son. Kirsten also cool, she is funny and I look forward to her overviews of the day. My baby comes home babbling and you can tell he gets activated from attending this daycare. The other kids there seem happy too. I tell my baby, ''Let's go see your friends'' as we leave our house. And when we arrive he smiles a lot.
Overall, I am lucky we found a place we can trust. Thank you ABP!
