My family had a great experience at Infants of Dunwoody. Our son attended for almost 2 years, and we don't regret anything about our choice to enroll him there. The entire staff - from the Director to the Lead Teachers to the Assistant Teachers - are filled with so much love for each and every one of the children in their care. Most importantly, the kids are safe, happy and well-taken care of. Nearly as important, the kids learn a lot. We were constantly amazed at what our son came home talking about. His education at Infants of Dunwoody greatly exceeded what we expected. The first impression of the facility is not overwhelmingly positive - it's a little old and located in a shopping center. But don't let that fool you. You won't regret it, and your child will prosper. We experienced very low staff turnover, built personal relationships with the staff and the families of the other kids and truly feel blessed by the experience. We were sad to leave. The support and love from the Infants of Dunwoody staff towards our child was overwhelming, and we will always be grateful to them.

I took out my child as i could feel he was not happy. Most of the days i found him crying. On one occasion one of the staff member Ryan actually hit my kids head on the changing board while changing the diaper. I was shocked to see such neglect in just changing of diapers, you are supposed to keep your hand behind the head or make sure that you put the Kid gently on the changing table. I actually observed that my kid was feeling sad after coming from daycare. I initially thought it might be that he was missing us at daycare but once we moved him to other daycare i always found him playing with toys and HAPPY. I am just writing this review as i feel it's my duty to inform other parents who are searching for good daycare to be cautious of the face value of any daycare staff as they might might sound very caring for your kid in front of you but it might not be the case (which btw is the case with this daycare). I learned this the hard way.

I am mother of two handsome boys - elder one is 7 years and younger almost 2! Both my kids have used daycares since infancy.Based on my expereince with older one, I knew exactly what to look for when little one was ready for daycare. To me, an infant needs a CLEAN, decent size classroom, so he can crawl around easily. Also, attrition rate is critical. At elder one's first daycare, once the director left, every few weeks my son would have a new teacher. This would make our separation in morning difficult, because he was obviouly nervous and it would take him a few days to know the teacher and feel safe with her. When my husband and I toured Infants of Dunwoody, we did not get any "funny" smell in the infant room. Cleanliness is critical, since to us, kids going to daycare are obviously more prone to illness, and the center can reduce this significantly by keeping the rooms clean. In addition, I believe, Ms Charlene in the infant room has been with Infants of Dunwoody for a long time. She was there thoroughout my little one's tenure.She is very loving and caring and knows exactly what a parent and child needs. I realised we did not even need to tell her much! She is a pro at childcare. My husband and I have very high regards for her. Ms Tameka and Ms Brummet are great at managing the center. They make it feel like a home away from home for our kids. Infants of Dunwoody is the best centers we have used for ur kids till date.

Infants of Dunwoody and Dunwoody Academy has cared for my daughter for the last 3 1/2 years, since she was 4 months old. At every stage she has received excellent care and attention from the very experienced staff. In particular, Charlene and Kathy have played a critical role in her development. We are very thankful that Dunwoody Academy hosts a GA Pre-K program which next year will help our daughter transition into public school in a familiar environment along with her friends of several years.

THANKS TO EVERYONE for every diaper change, new task taught, bright smiles enhanced, tears that turned to cheers, hair do's that have been repaired, courteous behavior that's been reinforced and every single crisis averted!! We Appreciate you TEAM INFANTS OF DUNWOODY/ Dunwoody Academy! R Chambers 'Cameron's Mom'

My 2 1/2 yr daughter got into this daycare when she was 5 months old. 2 years passed and we are really happy the way the staff taking care of my kid.This place is clean, tidy and safe for infants and toddlers. I find the staff polite and caring specially Ms.Charleen, Ms.Stephanie, Ms. Tamaica, Ms.Jelissa, Ms.Nina and not the least wonderful owner Ms.Brummet. They got good schedule, activities, curriculum and academics. To be honest, whatever qualities my kid achieved was 100% acquired from the staff. I & wife just have time in the evenings and weekend.On many occasion my friends family had commented positively on my Kid's behavior,manners & attitude. The credit goes to the staff to greater extent. Apart from their normal schedule they have great fun time and celebrations especially the Halloween day.Except for the first few days (obvious for 5 month baby), my kid never cried going school, which proves how good she feel the environment.I would definitely recommend for infant/toddler.

I would never recommend this daycare to any parent. I kept trying to convince myself that things would get better, but it only got worse until I finally pulled my daughter out. There is a general lack of safety and attentiveness to the kids from the staff and the owner, a lack of structure and learning environment, and a lack of professionalism. To begin, the school lies about its infant room ratio. It's not 1 to 4; it's 1 to 6. Additionally I noticed my daughter had objects in her mouth when I picked her up on three different occasions. The first time it was a small piece of plastic, the second time it was an unidentifiable object and the third time it was a piece of carpet from the classroom. I should not need to worry that my daughter will choke on plastic objects at a daycare. The daily reports are a joke - each day my daughter's day consisted of "circle time with friends, free play and buggy rides" - if the teachers even remembered to fill out the sheet. There is no structured curriculum like in other daycares. They haven't not shampooed the filthy carpet "in a few years" - your kids clothes will come back dirty from crawling. Owner cuts corners and doesn't think safety is important.

Owner just needs money and expect kids to be very much independent when we start leaving there.Some basic facilities and practices are missing e.g juice,water etc is not offered to kids,No potty training,dont wash the hands of kids after they come back from playground etc.I personally went couple of times during breakfast time and they are alwayz running short of pancakes.With the price they charge not worth it!!

My 6 month old has been going to this daycare for 1 month, and has adjusted very well. He loves to play and the caregivers interact nicely with the kids. Charlene is wonderful with the babies and my son loves her a lot and has gotten really attached to her in one month's time. I think its great for infants, a little pricey though.

This daycare is 24 years in the business and you can tell. I shopped around and it is priced in line with the others. Lots of activities keep the kids busy and learning. The teachers are great. I'm totally happy with Infants of Dunwoody.

We had both our kids at Infants of Dunwoody for a total of three years. There 0 - 2 year old program can't be beat. It's expensive though; plan to eat beans for a couple of years. Their 2 year old and up program is a little less exciting.

Infants of Dunwoody is an expensive school for infants and toddlers however, the facility is clean, quiet, and the teach to child ratios are wonderfully small. I never doubt that my two children are getting the attention and love they need in a very academic yet fun environment.
