Our day care (we are sad to leave) has immediate openings
for 2 children ages 2-4 (see Daycares with Openings above).
We would like to recommend Dwight Way Child Care and
Preschool (much more of a day care than preschool) very
highly. Lalita and her staff (her adult niece, husband, and
adult helper) are wonderful. Lalita's philosophy is to let
young children PLAY. Since it is a home daycare there are
couches, tables, a large space for toys, coloring,
play-dough, plus pack-n-plays and cushy mats for napping.
Nap is every day after lunch for 1-2 hours. After nap, the
kids go outside to the HUGE back yard with an area for ride
toys, grass, and swing set with slide. The atmosphere is
very loving and homey. They care for your kids as if they
were their own. Lalita's prices are great (includes meals,
snacks and milk). $50 per full day. I don't know part day
prices. The day care closes at 5 pm, but we have NEVER been
charged for being even 30 minutes late. Lalita is extremely
flexible. If you go to visit, the interior of the house is a
bit dark. Stick around and talk to the adults and observe
the children. It is clear that the kids and adults love it,
and the kids feel safe and nurtured. We are expecting in
October and will be sending our infant to Lalita without a
doubt!!! Email with questions.
Lalita Kumar has given tremendous amounts of love -- and no small amount of homemade food -- to our daughter since she was 3 mos old. In June our daughter heads to preschool, and Lalita has room for more. Call me and I'll give you an earful, or call Lalita directly at 845-2734. She's on Dwight Way, from Fiji, and her spicy cooking is the reason my daughter won't eat scrambled eggs without salsa anymore. Douglas
