My wife and I are new parents and are interested in the Children's Corner day care center in White Plains (1133 Westchester Ave). My wife actually works in the same office building so this day care facility would be very convenient.

Can anyone share their experiences with this day care center? How does it compare to some of the others like Bright Horizons? Or some of the Montessori programs?

Thanks for your help!

I sent my son there from 3 mos-18 mos. The infant program was fine and a lot of the staff was nice, but there isn't much of a structure to the program. Once my son was a little older, we felt that it wasnt stimulating enough for him- there weren't any structured activities (i.e., story time, craft activities, etc.)- it was all free play. The last class he was in before we pulled him out- we felt there was little interaction with the teacher and the kids. There was also a very high turnover of staff and we were never informed when there was a new teacher in the room. Check out the office of children and family services- they have a bunch of violations from their last few DOH inspections.

We have been very pleased with the Montessori Children's Center at Burke. Maybe it's somewhere else to look into, although I do know they have a waiting list for the infant room.

Good luck!
