Lucky to find this place. Everywhere else around here cost 150.00 a week for infants and I think thats to the age of 2. We pay 70.00 a week there or not. Nobody will take part time kids.

An amazing women (Denise) who has cared for our twins since birth. I was relocated with my job, 45mins away from Love and Magic childcare, and continued to commute 1 1/2 hours so my twins could remain in her care.

I am paying for my son to go to the private kindergarten at A Child's Touch. It is worth every last penny! Very energetic and involved teachers who really care about each child and find great and fun ways to teach the kids. All the meals are provided at no extra cost and are extremely nutritious. Great outside play area that includes a wooden castle structure, a soccer field, a blacktop area, a building housing a science "discovery" center, another building houses a grocery store, a water marina, and they are now building another nature area. Can't say enough good things about this daycare!

My daughter attend 3 days a week for now. They have watchmegrow. I can log on anytime while she is there and view her activities. I get report of how her day was on paper everyday. Everyone there is kind and very patient. Everything is great so far. I can tell that although she is a little nervous in the beginning being without me for so long, that she is enjoying herself. She's already saying new stuff after 3 days of being there. Very happy and at peace with this learning center.

My child was given someone elses breast milk. The staff didn't seem to be that bothered by it. We took her off of breast milk and she is now strictly formula. Then the other day they put another childs bottle in her baby bag. Keep in mind that our bag is monogramed in large letters with her name. The bottle that they put in her bag also had a monogramed band around the bottle. I'm not sure of the people working there.

Provider: Butterflies & BeyondChild's Age: 8 & 6
Our kids have been going here since they were toddlers. Now that they are school age they go to afterschool care ($340/month for both kids for about 1.5 hours of afterschool care) and in the summer (see price above). This place is better than most, lots of activities, no TVs, field trips, reading and writing contests, speakers on a variety of topics. The price is pretty steep for this area but we suck it up because our kids aren't stuck in front of TVs or video games all day.

The afterschool care is good but basic. Most of the schools advertise that they offer "homework assistance" which in theory is good for parents because their kids can get a jump start on homework before the parent gets there. However, this claim is pretty much a joke. My daughter was in 2nd grade and pretty self sufficient but the few times she DID ask for help they either refused or gave her the wrong instructions. I realize it is ultimately MY job as parent to take care of this but just don't advertise it if you have no intention of actually providing the help. All of my friends say the same thing about their day care's claims of homework assistance....it just doesn't happen.

Nerve wracking search for infant care!
Amount: $1,250.00 per month
Posted by: first time parent in San Jose, CA.Posted: July 9th, 2008 03:07PM
Provider: Action Day - Primary PlusChild's Age: 3 months
After getting quotes from a bunch of places, we finally settled on a chain called Action Day - Primary Plus. The home care places were cheaper ($700-$900) but they just seemed kind of sketchy -- we saw a lot of unattended children during our visits. Most centers in the San Jose / South Bay area ran $1,250-$1,600 (Kindercare), though thankfully prices drop once they're a toddler. I wish we'd searched *before* the birth -- the best places (good prices, caring people) seemed to book early and had wait lists of 3-6 months. Primary Plus actually costs $1,480 but my wife's employer negotiated a 15% discount for employees.

This lady is a great provider. It was by luck that I found her, unfortunately she doesn't transport to preschool(not headstart)but when compared to $1000-1500 p/mo quotes I got from lower-cost traditional daycare centers (who do not transport either) I got a great deal. By the way I make $130 over the limit for child care assistance. WOW!

I pay $154 per month as a co-pay. I receive assistance through the state's childcare program. The city of Seattle also offers subsidy for working parents to offset childcare costs.
