A good school that needs to take better care of its teachers. I have two children currently enrolled in Camelot, and we have been there for a couple of years now. It really is a nice school with excellent, caring teachers and a good environment for the kids. The downfall: high staff turnover. My understanding is that they are not well compensated, which is really a shame because they work very hard and tuition is not cheap. I hope this will change, as it is hard on the children to lose their cherished teachers, and it reflects poorly on the school. We are currently looking into other programs in the area because we are tired of the turnover, and I wish it didn't have to be this way. Overall this is a good school which would be great if it took better care of it's wonderful teachers.

It's sad to see a great school slip into oblivion, but that's what has happened to Camelot. I was a devout parent and strong advocate, and I could never fault the amazing teachers and their dedication! However, the owner has destroyed this gem... her shortsighted and uninformed decisions have hobbled the teachers and alienated parents. Camelot no longer has an elementary school...enrollment waned as the owner spent more time at the campus... as she failed to let the teachers do their jobs and encumbered them with absurd restrictions. This woman doesn't seem to understand education, doesn't seem to like children, and certainly does NOT like parents. The teachers could be 5 stars if only the owner would allow them the freedom and tools to do their jobs.

We just love Camelot!! We found it 8 years ago after an exhausting search for where to send our then 4 year old. Our girl immediately ran to the slide and never looked back. When it was time for our second daughter to start preschool last fall I called Camelot and to my complete delight Miss Kelly was still there as was most of her teaching staff. These wonderful talented people take such good care of my little ones that I never have to worry (ok I'm a Mom I still worry a little bit) about my girl having her best day at school! She loves the classroom with it's wide range of toys, books and activity centers. She has learned to write her letters and numbers and she just loves to write her name on her beautiful artwork!! She is beginning to recognize words as we read books thanks to her wonderful teachers and we still have another year before kindergarten. I highly recommend this wonderful facility and I thank each and everyone of teachers and staff especially Miss Kelly for the amazing care they have given my girls.

We have loved our time at Camelot. My children started in the infant/toddler center and continued through pre-kindergarten. The program is positive and creative and the teachers are professional and obviously love what they do! Absolutely recommend!

I am a grandparent with two grandsons who attended Camelot School. Both boys loved the school. The staff is warm and friendly, efficient and professional. The curriculum is advanced and child-centered. Both boys talked a lot about what they learned at Camelot and were reluctant on many days to break it off and go home. The school has good, high test scores, successful graduates and a well-deserved positive reputation.

Wonderful school! We couldn't be happier with the care and education that our children have received. The teachers are professional, experienced and extremely knowledgeable, and our children have learned so much since attending this school. They are also very happy and secure, often not wanting to leave when we pick them up.

Camelot's teachers really care about each child both academically and emotionally My daughter has just finished first grade there and I couldn't be happier with her progress. We had a very bad experience with another school and her teachers at Camelot have nurtured her and given back her love of learning

Camelot has really gone down hill. The principal Mrs. Wong does not respond to parent concerns. The curriculum is below grade level.
