If you’re reading this, you most likely already live in the ‘burbs’ or a move there is on the horizon. Our friendly neighborhoods and bustling villages offer families more space, abundant greenery and a great place for kids to grow up. In our communities, we are (deservedly) spoiled with a tremendous amount of options for daycare, pre-school and summer camp programs for our children. But with so many options to choose from, it can be incredibly overwhelming and difficult for parents to pick the right program for their child. Sound familiar? Enter Cribsters.com.
Noa and John, new parents and fellow Westchester residents, had such a hard time finding a daycare center for their daughter after their move from Manhattan that they decided to create a website to help other parents looking for child care, essentially eliminating the painful research process.
Cribsters is a free nationwide child care directory featuring over 175,000 licensed daycare, pre-school and summer camp programs. Parents can search for child care provider by zip code and in addition to basic provider information, Cribsters.com tells you how far the school or center is from your house, the age range accepted in the program, and program capacity. Most importantly, Cribsters has a child care review area where parents, like us, provide their review of the child care center, offering honest, unbiased feedback of the individual programs from personal experience. Hence, invaluable information you’re not going to get no matter how many phone calls you make. There’s even a childcare and parenting blog on the site where various topics are discussed.
Here’s the fun part. From July 26th-August 5th, visit Cribsters.com and leave a review for your child’s daycare, pre-school or summer camp program and be entered to win a super cool Britax B-Agile stroller in Peacock (the latest and greatest gorgeous turquoise shade, pictured below). You can enter the contest multiple times: one entry for every review you leave, so be sure to provide feedback on as many centers, programs,and schools that you have experienced. Good luck!
