Child care options in the Sloop

Hi neighbors - I'm planning to enroll my son in a care facility in January. He'll be 13 months and this will be his first exposure to outside care. I believe I've narrowed it down to JTA Schools (Clark & Harrison) or Kids & Company (State & 14th).

Both are newer locations, but I'm hoping someone who has dealt with either in any capacity is willing to share their experience.

I've spoken with a few parents at each facility, but since this is a big decision, additional perspective is welcome. Thanks in advance!

  • Our now-3-year-old daughter has been at JTA Schools since she was 14 months old. She loves it there! There's a focus on learning, both through structured activity and free play. There is good communication between school and parents.
