Where can you get reviews on daycares? (Interested in Nanda Childcare in Montgomery County)

I found this place called Nanda Childcare in Montgomery County that is within our price range and near our house. However, I would like to get reviews on it before visiting. I searched the DCUM forums for information and could not find anything. I also did a post on DCUM but I have not received any comments.

What other places do you look to get daycare reviews? Are there other message boards that I should look at? Also, is there a Better Business Bureau sort of organization for day cares? Any info on how you gathered intelligence on your daycare would be appreciated...

  • Have you looked for inspection records through Maryland State Department of Social Services? They should have the records that document any violations/complaints per state inspection of the center. In VA that is done a few times a year and all records are on line.

    That could be a good place to start, before you even ask around. If there is a validated complaint about something that is a deal-breaker for you, you would be able to move on before putting too much energy into the place. I've found our VA Soc. Services website SO helpful!

  • Yes, I did find the state department's website that contains the records. Thanks for the tip!

  • Looking at the records kept by the state is your best bet.  Unfortunately I've never found a catch-all website where parents rate their daycare.  I can only assume that there may be legal issues with that.

  • Hi! I know this feed is 5 years old but I am actually in the exact some situation.  Looking at Nanda at Traville and for possible other daycare centers in this area.  I was just wondering where you ending up going? Or if you found out anything else about Nanda. Thank you! Sarah
