Great School Excellent Staff My kids love going here! Great location for my family The hours really work for me too. I love how excited my 4 year old is to be going to Story Book Cottage. They also have a shuttle service for my 8 year old, which is so helpful because alot of in-home child cares in the area do not.
The school seems to have good program, their own kitchen and bible study....What catch my attention is the lack of affection, enthusiasm and interest the teachers show to the kids when they arrive or leave the school. Most of the time they are ignored as well as the parents or they just say hello to the kids as they were referring to adults. Very serious, and dry...
My 3yr old daughter went to this school for only 4 months. She cried every single day during drop off. There was not one teacher that could get her attention, they would have to pry her off me and she would stay hysterically crying. I ended up taking her back to the home day care. When she turned 4, we decided to try preschool again. This time in a small home setting. She has been going to Itsy Bitsy Preschool since September. Haven't had any tears! Not once! The teachers are very dedicated to the students. I'm glad I found this facility.
My son attended Storybook Cottage for Preschool this past yeat and will now attend afterschool care. He is now moving on to Kindergarten and is more than prepared and I believe alot of that is because of the great teachers and program that they provide.
My son went to Storybook for approximately 8 months and continues to go on a once a week basis. We love this school! The teachers create a very loving, caring, and supportive environment. There is a very good balance between play time and learning time. My son learned a lot while attending Storybook and I am very impressed with the program and the staff. Should the need arise for full-time daycare/preschool again, I wouldn't hesitate to put him back in Storybook! They are fabulous!
