Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:
“The Child Development Cooperative in Baton Rouge is one of the most exceptional early learning centers in Baton Rouge that I have ever seen in my experience as a parent, former Pre-K teacher, and developmental psychologist… The co-op stands apart from many other centers in its philosophy of supporting children’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth through truly developmentally appropriate, child-directed, exploration and creative learning. While the environment and educational materials are spot-on, a big reason the co-op is so special is the expertise of its staff and the authentic and nurturing relationships they create with the kids. Their interactions with kids show how much they respect children and care about their growth. They use materials and activities that not only engage children’s minds and bodies, but are also so much FUN! My kids loved having so much outside time and getting messy! Jennifer and the staff were always available and receptive when I needed to chat about anything. They helped foster a family-like feel by having fun activities for families to get to know one another… [Attending the co-op] was a wonderful experience that I am so glad [my kids] had!” – K.L.
It is because of excellent reviews like this that The Child Development Cooperative is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner!
Not Your Average Child Care Provider
We were excited to learn all about The Child Development Cooperative and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the owner and director, Jennifer.
The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes The Child Development Cooperative stand apart from its competitors. Jennifer told us about their emphasis on protecting childhood with a structure that is play-based. She said:
“What sets us apart is our play-based philosophy. Children learn through play, and it’s our duty to protect that authentic childhood for children. We spend a lot of time outside, and we incorporate parents into our program as well.”
When we asked Jennifer about their overall mission, she shared that it’s all about valuing childhood and doing everything they can to support the children entrusted into their care.
Building Success With Help From The Families That Love Them
The Child Development Cooperative has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Jennifer how they have managed to grow their business and get such great reviews. She told us about their passionate staff, who love what they do. She said that, while they don’t solicit reviews, the parents end up valuing their service enough to spread the word about them.
In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, The Child Development Cooperative has spread the word about who they are and what they do entirely through word of mouth and with help from their Facebook page, which really says something about the amazing service they provide.
There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as The Child Development Cooperative has managed to. We asked if Jennifer could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:
“Do your job and love what you do, and your clients will respect that. Do what you do and do it well, and your clients will respond in kind.”
Congratulations to The Child Development Cooperative for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Jennifer for taking the time to speak with us!
