Reviews for Lucy Daniels Center

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a big fan of the Lucy Daniels Center for two reasons. The first is that they were gracious host to my Finance team of 18 employees last year as we completed our GlaxoSmithKline Orange Day assignment ( all GSK employees select a day of volunteer work and our company is generous enough to pay for the day and the activities). It was a wonderful experience to work on the LDC playground as the children waved and smiled from their classrooms and were entertained by the muddy and wet strangers who took great joy in putting mulch down on their area for play ( it was pouring rain while we worked and it made it fairly comical). Our team had a great time with team building at LDC.

LDC is the pre school we selected for our son who is now about to turn 16. He attended LDC for 3 years in his pre school period and was allowed to experience and pursue anything he felt was interesting. LDC was great at given my son the confidence to explore and be creative.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't touch a thing!

The Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood is at the forefront of conducting research and providing treatment to help children with severe mental health challenges. The Center, through its unique approach to therapy and treatment, provides support and hope to families when they feel they have no place to turn. Each and every member of the staff is a dedicated, caring and compassionate professional who gives selflessly, which makes families feel welcome.

I have personally heard testimonials from parents about how the Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood has changed the lives of their children, the lives of their families.

One of the reasons I got involved with Lucy Daniels is because I had two children who attended school in their Early Intervention Program and Early Childhood Program. The experience I had with the Center has been and still is amazing. We still seek therapy there for our child who was in the EIP. It was a place for us to bring our child who had social and emotional problems and not feel judged or discouraged. After an almost 2 year search for help, I felt like they really "got it." The support that is provided from the teachers, therapist and staff is insurmountable. They are focused on one goal and that is to better the mental health of kids who need it. Our life has changed because of the 18 months we were there. I chose to help with the Lucy's Book Club because they recognize the importance of really listening and understanding kids and their emotional struggles for both "normal" developing kids and ones who are still trying to find how they fit into the world. I love the fact that they are sending positive message about the importance of children's mental health at an early age.

My son spent 18 months in the Early Intervention Program because he struggled emotionally and socially. The EIP changed his life and ours. He started there a very sad and lost boy and came out happy and confident. It was hard work, but worth it.
