We toured the "best" daycare in town on Friday. It's the only one we could get a recommendation for at all. We put the baby on the waitlist, but I'm really sad about it being the only possibility. The baby room was just all white (but dingy) except for a few toys on the colored rug. There were 8 cribs against all the walls (each kid gets their own designated crib). It was just really depressing.
The room for the up to 18 month olds was pretty much the same and the one for the up to 2.5 y had no cribs, but no color either. The oldest kids room finally had some decoration/stations.
The staff (except for the receptionist giving us the tour) seemed really nice and friendly, but overall, I left kinda depressed. Neither DH or I ever went to daycare so we really don't know what to expect.
