I've used Kindercare in Texas and California and love it. I had a child in another daycare center in TX and didn't like it... so when we did it for the baby, i was skeptical. But it's been great in both areas.
Also, our first was in home daycare for 2 years before she went to a daycare facility... I love home daycare too... you really have to go into everywhere with open hearts and be prepared with your questions.
I looked for:
Good food (I bring in my own snacks) but their lunches were very good.
Low turnover in teachers. Moms were employed and they got raises each year with training.
Education. 0-1 has individual plans. 1-2, a weekly plan. Not just daycare.
