Best Daycare: Bearly Beginning Daycare Center

With its jungle gyms, activities, trained staff and more, Bearly Beginning Daycare Center, which has called Victoria home about 12 years, won best daycare in the area.

The way the staff treats the children is likely what made Bearly Beginning stand apart from the rest, said Petra Mullins, assistant director for the center's Miori Street location.

The staff doesn't speak to the children in harsh tones and makes sure to limit TV time, she said. Children also learn a curriculum throughout the day.

"It's not just about babysitting," Mullin said. "There are always things you can teach the children."

She said the staff also works to remain up-to-date on training.

"We learn different ways to deal with the children and how to do different activities," Mullins said. "We're constantly training. I think that makes a difference."
