Positive Alternative Pre-School5

I couldn't be more pleased with Positive Alternative. The people there who work with the kids forge great relationships with them and genuinely like kids. They have pretty good retention of staff and kids, so my son, who has gone there since he was 1.5 years old, has made some great friends and loves his teachers. They act like it is an honor to take care of your kid, and also have good parenting suggestions because they really get to know your child. I am so thankful we found this place!
We, unfortunately, had a bad experience when we first moved to the area with an accredited "chain" childcare establishment. The instructors played movies for the kids all day and did not interact with the kids at all. We were extremely blessed to find Positive Alternative. Their ideals, nurturing manner and impact on my children is unmatched to any daycare we visited or have ever experienced. The knowledge and preparation they provided my oldest helped him to succeed in Kindergarten when we were at first worried if he was too young to attend. Although my children are graduating from PA, I know that the consistent, insightful and professional care given to them will set them up for success in elementary and beyond. They truly are just like family and I want to be sure that other families who are looking for childcare know how tremendous of an organization this is. The instructors and Director have been there for a very long time and really know what they're doing! You have to at least check them out - I can almost guarantee that your childcare search will end there. Thank you PA for everything!!
I have had two children at Positive Alternative Preschool over the years starting in 1998. The same teachers have been there all along. This speaks well of any facility!!! All the teachers are very caring and mommies themselves. One of the most affordable in the area. I highly recommend this school.
I have had 2 children at positive. One just starting attending.. I cant begin to explain how wonderful this place is.. If you are looking for a safe haven for your small children look no further... The teachers are exceptional
My 2 year old has been going there since 1. I can't tell you how wonderful the place is, and how much the teachers care. Due to the smaller size the kids get a much more personalized approach. The curriculum is fabulous, and my little one is light years beyond her friends from birth that are the same age, and in stay at home care, or a mega child center.
Great, friendly, personable center and staff! Low staff-child ratios mean more one on one time with each child. Great learning environment and kindergarten readiness program. Staff turnover is almost non-existant...most of them have been there between 5-20 years. They really get to know your child to help meet their needs.
