Our names are Holly and James Hardie. We are both optometrists in Bedford and Monroe. We moved to Lambertville 7 years ago. Our children, Vincent and Julia, both attend Bedford Child Development Center. We have been attending for the last 3 years. Both of our children started when they were only 9 weeks old.
This center has truly been a blessing in our lives. Owning our own businesses did not leave much time for maternity leave. With no family in the area we were needing to find a place we could trust and feel comfortable with leaving our babies early on in their lives. I have never once questioned if we made the right decision with BCDC.
I am always amazed at the activities and structure the teachers are able to provide for the children. I will never forget my son coming home at a very young age knowing his animal sounds. I thought for sure I was hearing him wrong. My son was too young to know that! The same happened with my daughter. At one and a half years old I found her singing her ABC's to herself. I KNOW I did not teach her that!
Every teacher in BCDC takes an active roll in our children's lives. I love walking through the halls and hearing teachers from all classrooms greeting my kids. They not only know their names but they know Julia is the Sister Cat and helped come up with the nick name when she was in the infant room and they know Vincent loves Paw Patrol and super heroes.
I would highly recommend Bedford Child Development Center to anyone who puts emphasis on early child development but also wants highly personal and caring people to snuggle their babies.
