We just moved to the area roughly six months ago and enrolled my 2-year-old son in a day care with a popular name (out of desperation), but we are very unhappy with it as parents -- more on the administrative end rather than the actual care of my child, but nonetheless, I would like to know of any reputable facilities in the Hellertown/Center Valley/Coopersburg area. We are sick of the 20 minute ride to his school anyway, but if there is a place that comes highly recommended, of course we would drive to the end of the Earth if need be.

Any help would be a huge help. He is happy there, that's why we've kept him there for so long, but with another baby on the way, I'd prefer to find a place that he likes and we like and can trust with an infant. Thanks!

Smile Don't be afraid to ask questions, Pennsylvania has

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Pennsylvania has strict laws concerning Back Ground checks of any employees working at Day Care Centers. Even the Center itself has to have licenses and permits.

An unlicensed Day Care was operating near us. Day Care isn't cheap and some people desperate for anyone to watch their children used it, until it was discovered.

So ask questions, a Legal Licensed Day Care will be glad to show you their papers and confirm they have done Back Ground Checks.

Your children are a gift from God, a real treasure of great value, don't cut corners trying to find a quick fix.

This is a new Law, Home Repair and Improvement Companies must NOW registered with the State of Pennsylvania. If you ever need anything done around the house or want to improve it make sure they have their License from the State, or don't use them. A lot of consumers have lost money not doing so when the unlicensed operator drank up or smoked up their customers advanced payments.

Sorry, I'm no help. I was a stay at home Mom until my youngest got into middle school so have never used or investigated day care.
