Very disappointed with this school. When I come and pick him up, the kids were at the table eating a snack and the teacher was holding a mini IPAD. The kids were watching the animated movie Toy Story. What happened with the regular books? The school doesn't have the money to provide books for the preschoolers? then, while I was talking with the teacher about the use of IPAD in the class, I heard a mom that was picking up her son from the table, saying "I hope he didn't drink that". She grabbed the paper cup and took a sip and she said "oh, this is water, thank God". I noticed it was water on the table and we touched it and smell it and it had a very strong bleach odor. We asked why is she using bleach in the class while the kids were eating and the teacher replayed that she needs to disinfect. Very careless! To use strong chemicals around children that young is a very careless thing to do! Of course, I complained to the front desk about this aspect. I decided not to bring my son back to this school.

I started my son here at 2 and couldn't be happier. We extensively looked at the schools in the area and this one by far was the best in my opinion. It has a great balance and was exactly what I was looking for.

My eldest child went to preschool here back in 2007 to 2009. I believe that was the first time they had the half-day classes and we really liked it. The teachers (Ms. Marilyn and Ms. Melissa) are the best. I am glad we picked this school for our daughter.
