I am a mother of three children ages four, two and five months. Currently all three are enrolled at the North Arlington Heights KinderCare.

I have been very impressed with what the KinderCare program has been able to provide for my children. When my oldest was born and I had to return to work, I really wanted a nanny to care for my child but we were unable to afford it. After researching many options we chose KinderCare. I was quickly impressed by all the different activities the children do in the Infant and Toddler rooms. Sensory activities, art and craft projects, all of which I had read are great for stimulating brain development at that age. In addition I saw social skills starting to develop right away. All of that coupled with the excellent care that was provided for my child had me quickly conclude that this was a better care solution for our child and our particular situation than a nanny.

As our family has grown we have continuously weighed the benefits our children get being at KinderCare against other daycare options. We have repeatedly concluded that this is the best place for them. Even if I could stay at home I wouldn't choose that option because there is no way that I could provide all three children with the unique learning experiences that they are receiving at KinderCare.

It is so much more than just daycare for our children. It has some aspects of a school, which is great for transitioning them to real school, but at the same time it has an environment that is warm, loving and fun.

I have been very impressed with how much my children have been able to pick up on in math, reading, art and especially science. It is wonderful to pick them up at the end of the day and have them bursting to tell you everything they know about the solar system or show you the art masterpieces that they created.

My two older children learn in very different ways yet they both thrive here. Every day they both learn new things and get to explore their own special talents. I think the reason they can be such different learners yet both be so comfortable in the same place has to do with the class structure. Although academics are taught here there is a large part of each day focused on the child and their development as a person. Every class has teachers that really get to know the kids (all of the kids, not just mine), their strengths and weaknesses and even their quirks. It is a very loving environment. These are the types of teachers that know how to make "owies" all better.

Even in the Infant room the teachers are able to "figure out" each kid and learn their personalities and temperament. For example, they know which babies my five month old likes to play next to and they know that every day at around 5:00 he just wants to be held, it's just his thing.

I have found that KinderCare does a good job of keeping the children challenged. They make an effort to keep children amongst other children of the same skill level, both in terms of their physical and mental development. Although age is a factor they don't group their classes by this factor alone.

The parent feedback is great as well. The daily sheets list the activities the child did that day which is nice. The best part is the photos. There are so many photos and they are wonderful. It's one thing to read about what your child did that day but it is so much better to see it! In the pictures you can see your child interacting with others and their expressions while doing the activities, things that cannot really be described in words. The teachers print a lot of pictures and always have them posted up or in the child's cubby to take home. It must take a lot of time to take and print that many pictures but it makes quite a difference! They also hold parent teacher conferences for all ages and keep a folder for each child filled with all of their art projects, academic work and photos.

Overall, I would say this is a fantastic option for child care. For us the benefits are the warm atmosphere, the outstanding academics, the friendships that our children have found and the smiles on our children's faces when we drop them off and they run to greet their teachers. - Lori C., Mother
