West Michigan’s Favorite Daycare Centers
When I was in the search for a daycare facility while pregnant with my first child, I found myself constantly asking everyone I knew what daycare center their kids went to and if they loved it. A recommendation from a fellow parent was worth its weight in gold to me.
Earlier this year, parents voted on their favorite places to play and live life in greater Grand Rapids. Parents told us the most loved daycare facilities in the area, so if you are also in the hunt for a great daycare center, here are some recommendations from parents just like you.
NOTE: We do recognize that there are many in-home facilities offering FANTASTIC child care in our area as well. As these facilities are usually quite small, it did not work to include them in the city & region-wide voting that took place to compile these results- that is why this article focuses on daycare centers. Look for an upcoming article on In-home Daycares and why some families choose this option.
