Good daycare near Schenectady?

kid crawling with blocksLindsay emails:

About 2 years ago, you had a post asking for suggestions for good day cares near Albany. Now, I'm pregnant, and both my husband and I work in Schenectady. If possible, I was hoping that you could ask the readers for any daycare recommendations in the Schenectady area.

That Albany question generated a lot of suggestions, and it was great to see people explain some of the reasons they were recommending the daycares mentioned.

So, got a suggestion for Lindsay and her husband for a daycare in the Schenectady area? Please share!

Schenectady JCC on Balltown Road in Niskayuna has a great Early Education Center. It is expensive but it is secure center and clean and has a great staff with lots to do like swimming and gym time.

I'd also recommend Little Ones and Little Ones Too on Rugby Rd in Schenectady. It's diverse and the owner Jade is great. They communicate and keep you informed. Mom's are always nursing their babies and parents are really involved.

We LOVE Kingsway Kids Center, off the Crosstown. It is intergenerational, which means the kids interact with the senior citizens in the partner buildings. The director, Lisa, is great, and they are affordable, and almost never close in the winter :-)

Schenectady Day Nursery. On lafayette street across from the police station.

Great question, thanks for posting this! We live in Niskayuna but work in Albany, and our kids are currently in daycare in Albany, near work. But we go back and forth on the "which is better, close to work or close to home?" question so will be interested to see what recommendations crop up here. I will say I have friends who are extremely happy with the Schenectady JCC mentioned above.

We brought our son to Maple Leaf daycare in Rotterdam and it was really great but it was expensive. They did a great job though if you can swing it.

i second Kingsway Kids Center! 372-6262. It's a nice atmosphere and my son loves it there. Lisa is wonderful and they take their accreditation very seriously.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.

What a brave young woman. Despite all of the hardships she has endured her main focus is to educate herself in order to spend her life in service to others as a doctor. How inspiring.
