“Extremely great school, I tried many nannies off the well known/expensive sites like care.com and then thoroughly checked all the local daycares, but where I truly felt I could leave my 15 month old rest assured and know she was being cared for a learn more than she would if she was at home was Chatham.”

“Chatham school on Redwood is GREAT. More importantly, my daughter LOVES it. She’s been there since she was 8mos old (started in the infant room). She is currently in the 2 year old room and loves going to school. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this place. I looked at 4 other schools before ultimately choosing this one. I like the large facility, great outdoor space with plenty of things for the kids to do. I also wanted a place where my daughter could attend up until Kindergarten came around. Great hours for working parents and very easily accessible. I am so glad we chose Chatham.”

“The staff is warm, well-trained and committed to the school and our kids. There’s low levels of staff turnover, and we’ve been thrilled with the level of support, communication, and collaboration we’ve enjoyed with both boys’ teachers throughout our experience.This school is great! My daughter has been going there for awhile now and she’s learned so much and has made so many wonderful friends! She also likes all the teachers , they are like another family to her and that makes me love this school even more. The teachers and director are awesome and really show how much they enjoy there job so I highly recommend to check this school out for your child.”

– Monica D.

“I cannot say enough positive things about Chatham. We have 3 young children who all have attended this daycare / pre school. It was recommended to us by a close family friend about 4 years ago and I dragged my feet on transferring, which I now regret.”

– Julie Z.

“My daughter has been in the baby room at Chatham for the past 6 months. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about her treatment there. The caregivers all seem extremely loving and attentive. They’ve even accepted my prefold cloth diapers and homemade baby food without question! I can’t wait for her to get older so she can enjoy the fabulous outdoor play area.”

“I am so happy to be returning to Chatham with my third child. Great that Maureen’s team of awesome caretakers are still there – they took care of my daughters (now 7 & 8) and they are excited their brother is going to the same preschool they did. I love they provide healthy snacks and lunch every day. My daughters still have friends from their preschool days and excited my son will make new friends. All the kids learn so much and I am very happy to be returning!!”

I am so ever grateful for your love, thoughtfulness, deep caring and consideration of the children and the multitude of needs of the school.

“Dear Maureen and Michael, We are so glad that 8 years ago we said, “yes” to Chatham. We still remember taking a school tour with Maureen and dropping each baby off for their 1st day in the infant room. All the celebrations, conferences, performances, projects, yard time, share days, and pajama days in the years that followed with all the stories swapped and connections made are such fond memories. You and your wonderful team have helped raise our children and shape them into who they are today. We are incredibly grateful.”

– Love Henning-Hance Family
