I am so grateful to have found this daycare for my daughter. The staff are wonderful, compassionate, skilled, and fun. Most of them have been there for many years, and they teach the kids to be caring, polite, and gentle people. The centre is clean and bright, with lots of toys and books. I like that all the children (of various ages) can play together and learn from each other. There is also excellent extra programming, like field trips and yoga and visits from the “Music Man”.
Franklin Children’s Centre was recommended to us by a friend and we are so grateful. The staff in the centre are caring, loving and supportive — and have been a huge influence in our son’s life. Despite a long drive for us to get to the centre each day, we can’t imagine our son going anywhere else.
When looking for a daycare, I talked to some people at work who had their children at Franklin. They couldn’t say enough good things about it. I am so glad a spot became available! The staff have become family for us, and the programming is fantastic. I think our favourite is the Music Man — our son comes home and teaches us songs now!
Franklin has a bright and vibrant space, but it’s the staff that really makes the Centre great. Our kids trust them and so do we. With so many qualified caregivers on staff, we know our kids are being taken good care of.
I have been a very satisfied Franklin parent for over seven years since my oldest daughter started at the centre. She is now eight years old and still fondly talks about her Spanish classes with Blanca, how delicious the food tasted and how great the summer program was! When we were looking for quality care for our son we had absolutely no doubts he would grow up to be a graduate of Franklin Children’s Centre too. You will not find a more consistent, more caring or more friendly staff anywhere else in the city.
I am so happy with the family-style childcare philosophy at Franklin Children’s Centre because my son thrives on interacting with children from various age groups. Family-style childcare has also allowed my son to form a relationship with all of the staff promoting comfort and continuity for him over time. The staff at the Centre are amazing: highly trained, caring and dedicated. I love knowing that my son is in such a stable and loving environment while I’m at work.
