I knew the first time I called that this was the place for my daughter. Marynell had to interrupt my call to call me back, because she had a little boy at her desk who was feeling a bit homesick and needed to chat with his mom to feel better. My daughter (now just-graduated from college) still remarks on the nurturing, creative environment and the remarkable teachers. This is an excellent school - you'll be happy you chose it!

Thanks parents for bringing your child-children in our nurturing environment.....I love my Boss Marynell Whitcomb and the entire staff......I will continue to smile and be the best teacher for my little student....The Happiest Place On Earth!!!! :)

My daughter has been going to this pre-school for several months and I could not be happier with the teachers, staff, environment, learning activities, social and emotional education, everything! They are incredibly good with kids and there is very low (to non-existent) turnover of staff. They even send their entire staff to the annual conference on early childhood education each year. Which means the school is shut down for those extra 2-3 days per year, but I think it's so worth it! My daughter is thriving and I am so grateful for the leadership of this school that creates a culture where the welfare, education and happiness of the kids is paramount.

I toured several schools and what I liked about A Child's Place was the warm, down to earth environment, the idea of the outdoor classroom, and how happy and loving the teachers seemed. My son started here a few months ago and he runs to the gate each morning and doesn't want to leave in the afternoon. The families are all friendly and down to earth and interact and hang out for a bit if possible when they pick up their children. The teachers are loving and warm.

We picked this school because it had the best outdoor area of all the schools we visited- large, messy, and full of nature to explore- very important for our son. The teachers are very dedicated and their play based philosophy is great. And the school is very supportive of working parents with good hours at a reasonable price. The one caveat- the administration is a bit oldschool which can be frustrating in an age of email.
