My daughter still talks about the teacher she had at this school. Best kindergarten experience ever! My daughter didn't know how to read going in, and came out a reader!

It is not half way through the year and we are have some major issues with the school. it could be the budget cuts or the teachers are already tired of the students. If you are new to the area do not enroll your children at any alpine school it has been not but trouble for all involved but mostly the child. When a teach calls a parent up because she does not want to deal with her coughing because she has asthma is just warms your heart. when a teacher takes it upon themselves to discipline your child in front of you for normal things in your own home, they have over stepped. don't waste your time with this school.

Perfect enviornment for our children! The teachers are excellent and having an all kindergarten school is perfect. I cannot wait for my younger child to attend this school.

Creekside is an excellent school with an excellent staff and an excellent Principal. Their academic program is of high standard, teacher expectations are high and realistic, the school has a dance class, art class, and a piano keyboard class. The school has so much to offer!

I just love Creekside Early Learning Center. I highly recommend it. My daughter has learned so much this last year. I wish she could go there longer! I will miss the teachers and principal so much!

I have been so impressed by how great CELC makes the transition from preschool to 'scary' elementary. Everything is their size. But I have not been impressed with the communication of our teacher and the principal. The principal is quite stand offish and seems like she is never around. I am holding out for the end of the year to see if it gets better. But I also have not been impressed w/the communication. It seems that I feel I am always finding things out by accident or I have had to ask numerous questions and when I do our teacher seems to have zero patience. I would hope she would remember that for many of us this is a first.

My daughter has really loved this school, and she is already reading and writing...It has been a great experiance for kindergarten. Their reading program is so wonderful, it has exceeded any expectations I had for what she would learn in kindergarten.

Our son just started at Creekside Early Learning Center, and from the very start we have been impressed with the warmth and professionalism of all the staff. They truly have a focus on quality education and safety. My son's teacher, Mrs. Montalbano, has such an excellent teaching style that he asks to do homework and looks forward to school days. The variety of learning opportunities is impressive, from the classroom, to the library, and computer lab. He is even showing us what he learns in music. I highly recommend this school!

High parent involvement and great teachers. This is a super school for new kindergarteners making the transition to school. My kids loved it there!
