- DAY CARE CENTERS Great San Jose Day Care Options ~ Sheena West
Finding the right day care provider for your child can be a harrowing experience, especially if your little one just can’t seem to be happy at these centers. It’s a good thing these San Jose day care centers have a way of turning those frowns into smiles. Their loving care providers will keep your child safe and happy while improving their social skills and giving them a basic education.
Childcare Adventures is a cozy home-based day care and preschool with a warm, positive environment your kids will love. The center is run by Dolores and Chio and they do much more than keep your child out of trouble all day. Toddlers will be carefully potty-trained and guided step-by-step, with lots of encouragement and support coming from the caregivers and the other kids. Dolores and Chio also have a great way of disciplining misbehaving children – instead of scolding them and making them sit in the corner, they explain what went wrong in firm but kind tones. What’s great about Childcare Adventures is that it’s not just all play – Dolores is also interested in the intellectual growth of the children. One of the rooms is actually a converted classroom where children can work on their cognitive skills and language development. Parents are very impressed by how articulate their children become after each day; hardly a day goes by where a child doesn’t learn a new word or phrase. Additionally, Childcare Adventures provides parents with a detailed daily written report about their child’s activities, meals, even his mood. Busy moms appreciate these reports, as they help them feel like they’re not missing out on their child’s early years.
