School Reviews

I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this amazing preschool and daycare. In the past three years, since my daughter began attending this school, our daughter has blossomed into a smart, clever, well-rounded child ready for Kindergarten. Her academic knowledge is far beyond that of a 5-year-old. Thanks to the program she has wide knowledge in colors, letters, numbers, writing skills, cutting, and arts-and-crafts. She knows all the months of the year and all the days of the week. She is able to spell and write her name. She is able to spell words and is even beginning to read smaller words. She knows her address and phone number by heart. The amount of puzzles that the teachers provided has helped my daughter to think outside the box. The rhymes and stories you read have helped her develop a love of reading! I can go on forever with all the things she learned at your Daycare, but here''s the bottom line: Just last month, she had her Kindergarten Assessment test and she passed it with flying colors and very high scores! We noticed how much she learned in social skills and communication, as well. She is better able to play with others and share. We are very happy with the fact that the group consists of kids at different ages. When she entered this daycare at age 2, she was the youngest and was eager to catch up to the older kids, which is what I think helped her learn faster. Now she''s the older kid in class, surrounded by younger children. This has helped her to become more caring and patient. My husband and I are also very satisfied with the well-balanced, nutritious meals and snacks our daughter received daily at this Daycare. The fact that these meals and snacks are Home-Made is a huge plus as well. My daughter always raved about how good and delicious her lunches were! The loving environment and the strong academic program have helped my tiny toddler become a well-rounded preschooler ready to take on the world. She has built friendships here that, I''m sure, will last her many more years! Most of all my husband and I appreciate the teachers'' honesty. Thanks to them we always knew exactly what was going on with our child, both academically and behaviorally. Whether it was good or not so good, they always told it to us like it is, and for that we are very grateful. Since we are away from her for most of the day on weekdays, it was refreshing to know we can count on them to be honest so that we always know what is happening with our child.
