If you're looking for a stellar Toddler, Preschool, or Kindergarten program, look no further. Paidea is incredible! Their teachers are top notch...in 2004 and 2006, 2 of their teachers won the Washington County Childcare Provider of the Year awards. Many of their teachers have been with Paidea between 10 and 20 years which says a lot! This is not a 'babysitting' service, they truly develop your child, teaching them life skills like problem-solving, conflict resolution, and how to identify their feelings. When my 3-year old told me he was frustrated, I thought, 'Wow, not only can he say that word, but he knows what it means, and is able to identify it in himself!' But don't take my word for it, Best Selling author, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka conducts research there. She says, 'If I were choosing child care for my children today, I would choose Paidea.'
