Both my kids have been going here since they were 4 months old and I have been very happy with the quality of care and learning. The pre-school follows lesson plans and my kids always come home with new songs and words and ideas to share. Its not the cleanest place, and my kids do come home dirty and sandy, but they are playing hard and having fun which is way more important to me than being clean. The teachers are great and the school accommodates dietary needs, like soy milk. Potty training for both my kids happened early and was easy due to the encouragement and help they got here. My daughter will be young (barely 5) going into to kindergarten this year, but I feel she is ready due to having attended this school.

The 1st week my 2 y/o fell causing scratched, swollen, bruised eyes, nose, & cheek. No call to me about my child s injury, her faces looked horrible for a couple of weeks. Her 3rd, 5th, & 7th week she was out sick due to viruses fever of 102 & higher. The facilties carpet where the children play and sleep was dirty. I had to take a lot of time off work on a brand new job, I had to make frequent Dr visit with co-pay and medications & had to pay double child care cost to the facility and back up childcare. Daily I picked up child with very dirty snotty & crusted face. When speaking with the staff at the facilty they stated that you can expect the child to catch 1-2 viruses a month lasting about 10 days and after 3 or 4 months the child will get used it and they also agreed about the kids faces being dirty at the end of the day. I had to find alternative daycare 3 of the 7 weeks that my child was enrolled.

Ouch reporting lacks something to be desired, facility unorganized and appears dirty. Not comfortable with environment for my child.

Great pre-school. My daughter has been attending since she was 3 months old and we are very satisfied with the loving care that she has been provided. Teachers follow lesson plans that they share with us on a monthly basis so we know what she will be learning every day! Also very thankful that they have a food program and provide a hot meal every day...my child is an extremely picky eater at home but consistently eats a balance meal at school each day! Peer pressure perhaps? Regardless, it puts my mind at ease that she will eat fruit and vegetables at school!
