My daughter has been at CDL for over a year, in the toddler class (now transferring to a multi-age preschool class). We are very happy with the school. The teachers are very professional and cordial. The environment is nurturing, and the kids are happy, respectful, calm and socially active. From the educational point of view, the children are exposed to a variety of educational activities in a play-based setting. We feel that our child has learned quite a lot since enrolling there. As the other reviewer mentioned, the environment is not very high-tech, but there are lots of hands-on activities and learning opportunities. The teacher-student ratio is the lowest I've seen at a day-care / preschool, in part because they have access to inexpensive (but highly skilled!) university students, who earn course credits by assisting in classrooms. At times, the child-adult ratio in the room is 2:1 or even below. Many of the families are university faculty and stuff, all value education. Communication between teachers and families is superb: daily feedback at drop-off / pick-up times, weekly newsletters, by-weekly photo-albums, regular and on-request parent-teacher conferences.

This review is for the CHILD DEVELOPMENT LAB at Arizona State University (it's mis-named on this website). My husband, daughter, and I are all thrilled with the program. The director, Mary, has been working in education for over 30 years. She knows everything there is to know and can answer any question you have. Courtney, the lead teacher in my daughter's classroom, has the perfect disposition and skill set for the position; she is calm, encouraging, kind, and a great role model for my daughter. She has quickly addressed any issue we have brought to her attention. There is also a host of assistant teachers and student workers, so the children get intense individualized attention. The whole educator team has kept in close contact with us and shown true interest in my daughter's development. Families are engaged with the school (many parents work at the university and prize education). Some families may hesitate because there are no fancy high-tech learning devices, but I prefer it that way (there is outdoor space and a veggie garden). We feel so lucky to be part of this wonderful community and highly recommend it to anybody looking for a loving, nurturing, positive environment.
