My son attended Rivendell for 3 magical years until he was 5 years old. He is nearly 13 now and still vividly and lovingly remembers his time at Rivendell. Cara is exceptional with kids and really knows how to be responsible and cautious while also relating to them on their level. I trusted her to regularly take my son on field trips and she created wonderous and engaging activities every day. As a working parent, it is always a struggle to find child care that feels like it will be as good as you can provide on your own. Often times, in Cara's care I felt like my son was getting BETTER care than he would get with me. I cant recommend Rivendell and Cara enough and since she only allows a few kids at a time, if there is a spot open, count yourself as lucky and grab it!
