This school has some things we loved (1 YO teachers, facilities, cost, hours). However, the administrator and ongoing problems that were not addressed over several months forced us to find another school to care for our child. Some of those things were severe staff turnover, inability to enforce policy- theirs or state suggested, ever-changing and unhealthy menus, lack of parent communication- much information we rec'd was found later to be inaccurate or "fluff". While they are Qualistar rated, they refuse to allow the company to publish or verify their rating. My husband and I were appalled a facility could hide so much dysfunction. I advise against even considering the school while it continues to be mismanaged.

Three Bears Learning Center is the best school in the neighborhood and competitively priced. My child loved the swimming pool in the summer. The teachers were all very caring and all speak English. I would highly recommend Three Bears for your child care needs. The staff and administration really care about your child's education. It is very much a family environment! They do lots of activites throughout the year but one of our child's favorites is the Fall festival carnival.

Three Bears Learning Center was a great find for our family. We have sent two kids through the school and we are very pleased. My children learned a variety of skills that will enable them to be successful both emotionally and academically for public school. Thanks Three Bears

I choose this school because it was the best one I found in my budget. My daughter has previously attended preschool before and never had an issues, but she hated it here. She was 3 years old at the time I enrolled her and she cried everyone she had to go here, so wing very out of the ordinary for her. The teachers are all foreign, many with accents so ick you can hardly comprehend what they're saying. I think it was culture shock and my daughter was very uncomfortable. Rather than helping her adjust, her teacher just suggested I un-enroll her, so I did.

Three Bears is cheap, yes, but a good school, NO. They have no structure and the teachers are not educated. I asked for what type of training, schooling the "teachers" have and the director, Miss Kim, told me she could not tell me that information. Strange as when you look up any good school, they have the teachers bio's on line so anyone can look it up. What does Three Bears have to hide? Several "teachers" there have told me they would not enroll their children at Three Bears. If you want cheap, uneducated people teaching your children, enroll them at Three Bears, if you want a real pre school, go somewhere else. Very sad to say. Plus, they say they have a chef cooking for our children and today they served the children Little Caesar's pizza?!

Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
