I just moved to West Palm Beach and looking for daycare for my 5 month old son. When we first got here, we looked at the following places:
Home Away From Home (Palm Beach Gardens)
LDR Academy (Jupiter)
and a few other religious based programs - which will not work for us as my husband is really against them.

We ended up choosing Home Away From Home - because it was close to home and they have the webcams to view what's going on. Today is my son's 3rd day there and I'm less than thrilled. I work from home so I pretty much have the webcam up all day so I can see what's happening and what he's doing. It seems like they move the babies from place to place - crib to toys or the floor for tummy time / playing. I don't see any structure at all - and never see them helping my son develop his skills - either physical skills like practicing his balance so he can learn to sit up, or mental like reading to him.

I'm looking for something else.

I was planning on looking into the following:
ChesterBrook Academy (Palm Beach Gardens)
ABC Children's Learning Academy (West Palm Beach)
Creative Minds Academy (West Palm Beach)

Does anyone have any experience with the above 3 schools? Is there a great school in this area I don't know about? PLEASE, my son is my entire world and he deserves the BEST daycare. If I *HAVE* to go with a private nanny, I will, but I think it's good for him to be around other children for socialization skills. Price is really not an issue - we moved from Massachusetts which has the highest daycare costs in the country.

I really do appreciate any / all comments. Thanks in advance!!
