Even though my daughter has only been attending Creative Minds for a short time (6 months), we quickly felt a part of the Creative Minds family and confident in the care that they provide. She frequently comes home with stories of what she has learned and done during her day, and it is clear to us that she enjoys being there. The teachers are all very kind and easy going, and they take pride in creating an environment that is safe and conducive to learning.
My son has been going to this daycare for a little over a year now. He had been in three different daycare centers prior to me finding this one and from the moment we toured the house to him moving up to a new classroom I could not be happier with the staff. The environment is warm and home-like, the staff are loving and respectful of parents’ wishes for how specific things like potty training or diet are handles, communication is terrific and their teaching style is both evidence based and it happens to fit my parenting style, which I like. We moved halfway through and rather than finding a daycare closer to home, I choose to drive out of my way to keep him there as long as I can. Can highly recommend.
Our family loves the teachers at Creative Minds. They are kind, thoughtful, energetic and truly loving towards our sons. We have complete peace of mind every day they are there, which exceeds all of our hopes for what a daycare could be.
I just wanted to send a note to you regarding my experience at Creative Minds Portland. I have a 10-year-old who attended the same center and loved it then and my sentiment is the same now with my 3 year old. I wanted to voice to you how wonderful the staff is. Teacher Lydia, Taylor, Emily, Priscilla and Rudy are the teachers whom I have worked with the longest. I just think they are so awesome. I always tell people that it is rare that you find a place that still has staff present from 7 years ago. It is largely based on the individual who is leading the location and Emily just does a spectacular job. My daughter has had both Lydia and now Priscilla as her teachers and I just have to say I love them both. Both have listened to my concerns always and answered all of my questions. They have taken time to help my child transition well into their classrooms. They are just the best. Thank you and please continue doing what you do.
