No personal experience, but ODU's daycare has a wonderful reputation. It is staffed by people with Master's degrees and students getting their Master's degrees in early childhood education. I have heard nothing but good things.
My friend who lived in Chesapeake had their daughter at The Goddard School and was happy.
I have also had several friends with their kids at Kindercare Centers. Most recently, my friend had her daughter at the Kempsville location and was VERY happy. I have also known people who have had their kids at the location off of Diamond Springs.
Good luck finding something you like!

No more TTC for us. We are done, and at peace, as a family of 4.

I have a friend whose daughter goes to KinderCare in Chesapeake. They have been pretty happy with it. I believe its in the Greenbrier area, but am not positive.
I've always heard good things about Goddard. A friend's son briefly went to the one in Williamsburg and they had no complaints.
