Both of our sons have attended Advent since they were in the infant room. We absolutely love the warm, caring and professional staff and teachers at this school. Every single child is treated like family. The programs are well run and provide a stimulated learning experience. I recommend Advent to everyone.

This one of the best pre-school in Boca. I am so surprised by the negative comments. The school is extremely organized, clean and everyone is caring and professional. As far as staff turn over (referring to some of the previous comments made by parents below) well what can I say. Ms. Geenie in the baby room has worked there for over 20 years. My kids have been going there for 4 years and I see all the same staff in the office and all their teachers are still there. A lot of the pre-school teachers have been there many years. I don t think that there is any more turn over than there is at any other pre-school. The principal is a little too strict with the school policies but other than that I LOVE this school!!!!

Advent is a caring loving environment for both children and parents. I have 3 children that have thrived in this school from 6 months old. I have seen love, kindness, generosity and teaching each and every day for many years. The staff has a low turn over rate. I notice that they try to work with children who have had a difficult time in a group setting. I have also witnessed parents who are unwilling to take responsibility for the non disciplining of their child ~ blame everyone and anyone. This school is Boca's gem ~ and it has been for many many years!

I had to take my daughter out from this school. The teacher dislocated her arm by force, and then a month later of this incident she stopped talking, start biting fingers and was scared and finally refused to go there and said she is not happy. While observing the glass, the teacher was unable to keep control of it, and it was a circus. Heard similar feedback from other parents too. The principal is unprofessional as well as the underpaid teachers

Unprofessional, uneducated, untrained teachers as you will find out as well as talking with other parents. They hire anyone who is willing to accept a low pay. The center is dirty, cluttered and messy. Playground is not safe, open bushes and spikes that can hurt eyes. Some of the equipments are not safe and kids can fall down easily and get hurt really badly. They may have 16-18 kids at the play ground and only one teacher, when the other teachers irs gone for 20-30 minutesg

We as a family are so great to be involved in this awesome school. Everyone front to back is overly nice and people actually hold doors and say good morning to you. I didn't think people like this still exist. Anyone with the negative feedback is CRAZY!!

My kids are in this school, but I will take them out soon. The biggest mistake is that I should have taken them out earlier. So called "teachers" are not educated, and are underpaid, so you can imagine the level of professionalism you will get, and a lazy attitude. Classes are mess, and teachers are unable to take control. There are plenty of good schools in Boca. Do your child a favor and look elsewhere.

Cannot believe what is written here. Principle is crazy and staff change every few months. Any bad reviews are taken down and replaced with fake reviews.

My children attend Advent ECS and I couldn't be happier. They have attended since they were infants and I feel so at peace having them there. The staff is loving and they care about not only the children but us parents as well. I feel like I'm leaving my children with family. I know that the teachers attend workshops and seminars to keep up with changing trends.

We came to Advent from a horrible daycare that truly did not care. My son at the time was having serious behavioral issues at his former school and a therapist said we needed to change school environments quickly. With in the first month of just camp at Advent he made a huge turn around. By the time he started VPK just 2 months from the change in schools their was no evidence of his former behavior issues. I attribute this to the love and patience of all the ECS staff. He is was well prepared and is doing great in public school kindergarten now! My daughter is flourishing and learning so much in the 3 year old class as ECS and doesn't want to leave half the time. It was the best move we ever made picking Advent for our children's early childhood care and education!

Advent is a great and safe school. I have been really happy with Advent, my daughter likes to go there and it is nice to see how she transformed from a shy little toddler to a confident pre-K er. The Staff is caring and it seems they truly enjoy the kids and working there. All in all, it is a very positive enviroment. The only thing it is a bit pricey and the hot lunch choices could be better.

My daughter has been at Advent since she was 4 months old. She is now in Pre-K and I cannot believe how much she has grown and learned under the caring tutelage of the Advent ECS staff. We have made great friends here and have formed bonds that will last long beyond our children's schooling.

My son/daughter attend Advent and I can only say that we are very fortunate to have found Advent. Not only have they received a great education so far, but in addition I see them developing confidence about themselves and their charachter. The faculty an staff are truly caring professionals who not only care about their education but care about the kids.

It truely has a wonderful and very caring environment. Exellent care for infants to 3year olds, but once the 'education' comes into play, they lack out. They cater well to working parents, open 7:30-5:30, vacation care on most holidays.Great school

The teachers are incredibly loving and nurturing to the children. However, there is not enough customizing for the children. My daughter in Pre-K has already learned the concepts being taught for the year and there are no advanced programs for her.

My son was at Adennt ECS for three years and I am very pleased with the quality of the care and education that he received there. Most of the teachers and assistants were wonderful and sincerely love their jobs and the children. I would recommend Advent ECS to anyone looking for quality childcare and education for their little ones.
