My daughter has been attending ChildServe for about a year now, and my wife and I have been pleased with the care she has received. We chose ChildServe because the child care provider we were using before had high school students taking care of the kids in the afternoon, and they were awful. ChildServe does not do this. They have well trained, attentive adults that care a lot about the kids they care for, and they don't switch them out with high school kids in the afternoon. They also follow your lead when your trying to do something like potty training, which is very helpful. My daughters current Lead teacher is awesome, and I feel good driving away as I go to work.
