Daycare With a Purpose
"If you want to grow a beautiful garden, you must care for it with love, patience, and dedication. The same is true when caring for children and giving them a solid foundation."
Ford Banks, Ellicott City"This is the best daycare for my child. My child began attending several months now. Daycare staff and owner have been very professional, communicative, reliable, and responsible tending to my child's every need. They provide food, photos, and a structured creative curriculum. My child loves coming to daycare. She is thriving, which is due to everyones diligence. The daycare is extremely clean, no shoes upon entering the children's rooms. A beautiful playground, lots of space in the classroom. It's a new beautiful location. They have demonstrated to me that my daughter's health and safety is paramount. I would highly recommend this location solely based on my experience with Ms. Lisa and all the teachers attentiveness. Some of my mom friends have advised that the Gambrills location is highly recommended as well. :)"
Nicole, Columbia"We love Watchful Eye!! Mrs. Lisa and her team truly are amazing! We have been going for over 3 years now and have used the before and after program for my oldest and my daughter started when she was 1. They provide top notch education and PLAY. All meals (THEY PROVIDE breakfast, lunch and snacks!!) are healthy and offer a variety to encourage food tasting. ChildPilot, a communication app, allows you to see your child’s daily activities such as meals, naps, crafts, learning and updates. You can also send messages and manage billing/payments. It says a lot when your child runs to her teachers and could care less when you leave them!! We highly recommend this childcare center!"
Sarah Kass, Gambrills"Highly recommend! Teachers are amazing and there is hardly any turnover. My son has had the same teacher the entire time he’s been here, which is very rare at daycare centers. You can tell the staff really like working with the kids. The facility is very nice and always clean. I feel confident in the care that my child is receiving and never have to worry about anything when I drop him off. They also do parents night out once a month, which is a nice perk!"
Nicholas Levandoski, Gambrills"This place is AMAZING! I rarely write reviews but, this place deserves 6 out of 5 stars. The staff are not just baby sitters, they are educators. Our son has been attending Watchful Eye since he was 9 months old. He is 3 and knows his colors, basic phonics, shapes, numbers and letters. Watchful Eye has poured a lot of effort into preparing children for school. We are more than just impressed. We are amazed at all that he has learned. He learned manners and cooperative play skills like sharing. Our son looks forward to school every morning because Watchful Eye creates a fun and educational environment. The management and staff are wonderful people. We feel like family."
Bret Lewis, Gambrills"This is a wonderful daycare. My son has gone here since he was five months old, he is two now, and loves it. The feel of this center is not so institutional like others. It has more of a home center feel to it."
Ali Scrivener, Gambrills"Our daughter has gone to Watchful Eye since she was four months old and is now almost two. She loves it and we know she is loved and well taken care of. All of the staff is so caring and loving."
Alexander Klayman, Gambrills"Very nice, clean, and friendly place. Balanced menu, arts and crafts for toddlers. They keep my daughter entertained and happy."
Stephen Hall, Gambrills"Watchful Eye has always provided great care to our two year old who has been there since she was four months old. Fairly priced, secure, provides all meals and great staff. Highly recommend their services."
Lindsey Kelly, Gambrills"Let me first say I wish I had found them sooner! I have a five and two year old and the difference I have seen in them since we switched daycares is amazing. My son loves Mr. Jason and my daughter loves every teacher in the building. My kids love going to school. The teachers truly care about the kids; it is like one big family."
Joshua Sampson, Gambrills"What a great daycare! Thoughtful staff and owner. Educational, clean, and enjoyable place for the kiddos. Our son had an excellent experience there, off to Kindergarten!"
Sarah Belt, Gambrills"Our children have been going to Watchful Eye Daycare since Fall of 2015. They are excited to arrive in the morning and never want to leave when it is time for pick up in the evening! They are treated like family at the daycare and the children have blossomed under their care!"
Ruth, Columbia"All staff always greeted myself and the kids in a very welcoming and friendly manner and the center is clean and organized."
Olga Frye, Ellicott City"They provide a safe and loving environment for our son. We couldn't be happier with our choice for child care. The owner is amazing. Place is always clean, well maintained and organized. Teachers always cleaning when not busy with kids. My little one developed so fast! Highly recommended!"

Lindsey France, Gambrills"Watchful Eye Daycare is just great! My daughter has attended the center for almost 2 years now and just loves it! The staff feel like an extension of our family. Everyone is helpful, careful, and safe with my child, and they provide her opportunities to learn, grow, and try different things."
