Alpha is like our son's second home. He is loved and cared for there by amazing educators and above all he loves going. Alpha's teachers are Montessori certified, have been there for many years, some 20+, which speaks to the fact just how amazing it truly is. Alpha provides a welcoming community for all families and for children of all levels. They work with your children and meet them where they are at. Children participate in engaging activities throughout the day but also are a part of many unique experiences at select times throughout the year. For example, Eagle Bear's presentation! It's a memorable experience for all! Alpha is also very affordable. Tuition even includes weekly dance class taught by a local dance educator, a weekly music class taught by an award-winning musician, weekly yoga classes, and an amazing once a month cooking class with Yaya. To highlight what the kids learn throughout the year, Alpha even has annual music and dance performances where the kids are able to show their friends and family what they've been working on in dance and music class. For a small amount more you could add a weekly Happy Feet soccer lesson. If you are interested, I would recommend taking a tour or speaking with any of the Alpha parents. We decided on Alpha after our first tour. You could tell that the owner was genuinely excited to have our child there and didn't view him as just another paying customer. -Mom of 3rd year Alpha student.

This is the most fantastic school with an equally amazing, caring, loving and strong staff! Every child is known and loved. The atmosphere is loving, supportive, educational growth and doing your best is a daily goal being met! You can't go wrong with Alpha.

My daughter has attended Alpha for 1 year now and she thrived under their care and education. She also attends the before and after school care hours. The owner/director, Ms Linda is a wonderful person and all the teachers know every single student (including the ones from other classes) and know them well. Turn over rates are extremely low, attention to detail and kids is excellent, food served is good, well priced and they really care for each child. On a few occasions the school called me because my daughter was running a fever; in all occasions, when I arrived to pick her up, she was laying on the Ms. Linda's lap while she was caring for her. I researched about 15 schools before choosing Alpha and I'm extremely happy that I did so. I recommend this school to any parent who wants a good, loving, trusting school for your child. BTW, my daughter is a little over 3 years old.
