Loveworks Child Care Center (South Burlington)
Ages: 0 - 5
Cost: Call for rates
Loveworks offers year-round programs for children six weeks old through Pre-Kindergarten. All classes offer excellent loving care along with activities to enhance fine and gross motor skills, language development, learning through discovery, social and emotional skills, and plenty of explore and outside time. The name Loveworks was selected to highlight the love that is experienced when working with young children and to accentuate wanting all children to feel love in their heart and share that love with others. This is emphasized daily through our character development, where children learn about kindness, friendliness, respect, compassion, cooperation, and manners. Children learn to care for each other, including all living elements in nature as well as care of property. At Loveworks Child Care Centers, children will know they are loved and that love with shine from their hearts.
Formerly, Leaps and Bounds Childcare.

The teachers/staff at this center have absolutely exceeded my expectations for a daycare. My 2 kiddos started just this past fall, so technically after they had become "Loveworks" (from the previous Leaps and Bounds). I was definitely hesitant at first, given the transition process, remodeling, and a few staff turnovers. I had met with some leaders at another Heartworks facility and this helped me make the decision to enroll my kids here....more

My child was at this facility since 3 months old up until 2 and from the beginning I was never super happy with the childcare but due to being on a pretty strict budget I tried to make it work. As said above, the staff that are recruited to watch the children have no actual childhood education or background and have trouble handling any situations that aren't 'easy'. My child is a vivacious, happy fun-loving individual with a TON of energy...more

I love Leaps and Bounds, now part of Heartworks on Williston Rd. My daughter has been attending the daycare since April 2015. My little one is always so excited to see her teachers and friends. I've have gotten to know some of the other parents who bring their children to the center. It feels like a little family there. Miss Meghan, Mrs. Tia, Mrs. Barbara (Barbie) and Mrs. Emilee are all amazing. Every Holiday they invite parents...more

We pulled our child our of L&B Williston Road because we were concerned with the massive turnover rate of not only the students/children but also the staff. In 12 months our child had over 8 different providers. often times we would not even know the name of the person caring for our kid. Although everyone is indeed very pleasant, the director is a bit stubborn and handles everything HER way without much interest in listening to others or...more

Must improved since Nicole has taken over as director at this center. Nicole, as well as all of the teachers, have improved the communication, one of my biggest concerns with this center. Progress journals are sent home weekly, notices of upcoming events are posted, even the white board of daily activities has been more detailed. My son seems to really love it there, and ultimately that is the biggest win for me!
Keep it up ladies!

My son has been attending that daycare (L&B on williston rd) for more than 2 years and he is happy the morning for the drop-off or at night when we pick him up. I know that my son is safe and sound.
The providers take the time to answer my questions and address my concerns. The journal is also filled-up once a week which is a great way to see if your kid is improving as far as learning and what is his behavior at the daycare. />
I am really happy also that Nicole Bielsa is the new director, she is really organized and let parents know in advance for special days at the daycare (bike day, truck day,...). She is also a great teacher ! I would like also to thank the other care givers such as Logan, Sydney, Nikki, April, ... and the former one Jess, Amanda, Nick, and Trish (former director).
Keep going with the great job !

Not even rated that is how bad it is. The owner Renae Desautels goes outside in the play yard and yells and screams at the kids and staff. We hear her all the time. As for the last poster regarding spraying the kids in the face with a hose, this is nothing less then abuse. The staff yell at the kids all the time and they should be reported to the police. They were reported one time we know of to the police and also should be reported...more

I agree 100% with the first poster. I would not recommend this provider to anyone. The site is dirty, my son comes home with his lunch still all over his face, and is completely filthy. I feel there is a lack of supervision, and caring for the children. It feels like the staff are there only for their paychecks. The staff come and go often with no explanation or introduction to the new teacher.
Staff are also short tempered...more

Leaps and Bounds was the worst experience. They expect you to follow the hand book, however they do not follow handbook procedures or state regulations themselves. I often was nervous about my child's day at school, due to neglect and uneducated administration and teachers.
Teachers do not seem to care about there jobs. The Director is defense and condescending. She regurgitates the handbook and does not allow parents to address concerns...more

My child has been at leaps and bounds on williston rd for over a year and we really like the place for a number of reasons.
First of all my son is safe and happy almost everyday when I pick him up. If for any reason he isn't, they tell me how the day went and everything that happened.
They take the time to personally address any issues and questions I have. Its a smaller group of kids so my son can get the attention...more
