My Husband and I had our first baby in January 2010. Before our daughter was born, we had talked to friends and family members about day care providers throughout Bend. Being first time parents, we didn’t know what we were looking for; we knew it had to be a safe and loving environment.
We interviewed at Crawmer’s Critterz and had a list of questions going into the interview. Once the interview was over we realized that Ruth Crawmer had answered all our questions, without us asking. It was obvious to us she knew what parents were looking for and how tough of a decision this was for parents.
We started at Crawmer’s Critterz in May 2010. My husband and I both work in the housing market. Daycare is not inexpensive and we knew how expensive it was to send our daughter to Crawmer’s compared to others in town. We made the difficult decision to pull our daughter from Crawmer’s and sent her to a new daycare in the area, which was significantly less expensive. We were positive and hopeful that the care would be just as good. After several months at the new daycare we realized the hard way that you get what you pay for. There truly is no price you can put on the care for your child. So Crawmer’s graciously took us back!!
Compared to other daycare facilities; Crawmer’s truly cares about the growth and development of your little one. You quickly realize how important the schedule and curriculum is even for your infant. The schedule that Miss Jess put our daughter on helped her sleep through the night at an early age. At the other facility our daughter slept in an open room where all the babies ate, slept and played, she would maybe sleep an hour a day. At Crawmer’s they realize how important sleep is to your babies growth and happiness. Our daughter has the same sleep schedule every day and sleeps a minimum of 3hrs. It’s nice to be able to take your baby home and they are happy and not exhausted from the stimulation and learning she receives.
This is a daycare that really cares about your needs as a parent and your child. As you will soon realize it’s very difficult to drop your child off and leave them in the hands of someone else, and trust they will be taken care of.
I know and have witnessed the love that my daughter receives. I could honestly say that the staff at Crawmer’s treat my daughter as a family member and not a paycheck. They love her when my husband and I can’t while we work. I couldn’t be happier and I know our daughter is!
