Some comments from parents:

Our daughter is extremely happy and flourishing within the environment that has been created at Childventures. We communicate daily with her teachers and this is key to helping us all be on the same page with her development. We truly appreciate all the sincere interest that is paid to her development!

The teachers at CV continue to amaze me with their creativity. Trace is my personal favourite. When my son had some anxiety starting JK, she had this brilliant creative idea of creating this mini booklet with CV room pictures which was then attached to his pant loop. That way, he could see what ‘room’ is next and how many more ‘rooms’ to go through until he got picked up. That helped him immensely and for a while was his security blanket. He is now in SK and STILL talks about it.

Some comments from parents:

I would not trust my kid’s education, care and nutrition anywhere other than Childventures. The teachers are outstanding, demonstrating genuine interest in the curriculum but also children’s personal development. The nutrition is amazing and exposes our children to a variety of foods. I would recommend Childventures whole heartedly to anyone.

I feel that CV provides an excellent first step toward independence for children and peace of mind for the parents. The teachers have always provided my kids with the one-on-one attention they needed at the beginning of each day if/when they were feeling a bit sad. I never had a moment of hesitation leaving my kids at CV. I knew they were in good hands and I feel that by the time they leave, they are well prepared to move on. The facility is always clean and my children rave about the food they were served. I have always highly recommended Childventures to friends/family.

I am happy to see my son being excited about his teachers and little friends in the childcare. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your child enjoying his time there.

I really like Childventures and am so happy to have my child here. Everyone is so nice and kind to my baby and us and so thoughtful and responsive to our needs!

For each Childventures location, we have gained meaningful insights from our parents responses about their families experience with us. It is our intention to work responsively in the upcoming year to accommodate the feedback that you provided! Thank you for your participation!
