I was curious to see if my old post was still of this site. I noticed the response of the owner on 05/16. This situation apparently has happened to more than one child. I wrote the review on 11/6 and unlike the owners response we (parents) saw eye to eye on parenting skills. We both communicated with staff and this was our sons first pre-school. My son was never pulled in two directions because of parenting. So it's interesting to see that my child wasn't the only one being neglected. Since we left Imagination Station, he has had a great experience elsewhere, one where he is thriving. A place where we as the parents feel he is loved, supported and PROTECTED. Not every school is perfect and that's not what I look for. I look for a few things, one in which if something does happen, there is change and responsibility taken. Neither of these responses happened, therefore we pulled him out as a responsible parent should.

My son attended this school for 3 years and it was a wonderful experience. The owners are great, great people. They absolutely go above and beyond for those students!

I am so happy we found this school. Every single teacher knows every student and everyone is so welcoming. Every morning when I drop my daughter off, they all know her by name and are so happy to see her. They are super family oriented and encourage parent participation any time. Any school that allows parents to just come in at any time, has nothing to hide. I love the option of the online webcam, so when I am at work I can just log on and check in to see what they are up to. My daughter has made so many good friends and I love that there is such a good mixture of children as well. All different races and ethnicities which allows for so much learning about all different people and their family traditions. My daughter has only been here for a few months but has grown so much already. The facilities are all so clean as well.

Contrary to the bad reviews below, our 3-year-old son had only positive experiences at the school. He's not the most easy-going creature in the world, but I've always admired the patience, love and dedication of his teachers. I could not find one thing to complain about, in the 2 months that he's been attending.

As the owner of Imagination Station I was surprised when I logged onto this website and saw the review dated 11/6. When reviewing the information I realized exactly who this child was and the situation. Unfortunately this was not a situation of neglect but of poor communication between mom and dad. This child was so torn in several directions due to two different parenting styles. Dad would constantly criticize mom's parenting and our teacher's abilities; however as the onsite owner he never spoke a word to me. I would have handled any situation immediately as is always done here. We pride ourselves on the love and nurturing provided by our staff and would never neglect a child. They are our priority and communication is key! The teacher/assistant in this classroom have been a consistent team for over 6 years and truly loved this child. Unfortunately this was not their first attempt at preschool and need to get on the same page. As a parent seeking a wonderful preschool, we are worth visiting!!! Please pop in and see for yourself :)

Love Love Love it! My daughter has been here since age 2. The progress she has made while here is just amazing. Everyone at the school feels like an extension of family. I have never has a single issue, unlike my daughters old school where it felt like I was bringing something to the directors attention every week. GREAT JOB Imagination Station!

My older daughter went to Imagination Station from age 2 until graduation. She was reading before Kindergarten. My younger daughter is 3 and is currently at Imagination Station. We love the school and staff. They are all very caring, patient and cheerful. Both my kids love school and I've never had any issues at all. The owners are awesome. I can't say enough about this early learning center. You won't be sorry if you enroll your child! I am a very picky parents and have nothing bad to say! - Tracie S.

I had the good fortune of learning about this school right before it opened. (over TEN years ago) I enrolled my son in the three year old program and was overwhelmed with his progress. Imagination Station teachers had my son Reading by e age of four! When it came time for kindergarten, he easily qualified for the gifted program. While I understand he is a bright boy on his own merit, this school laid a STRONG acidemic and social foundation. When he began kindergarten, we enrolled him in the Imagination Station after care program where he continued until 5th grade. More recentlly, I enrolled my youngest son. He began in the one year old program and is now in the pre-k class. The experience with my younger son, actually brings me to tears when I think about it. We have been blessed to have the best, most caring, patient, loving teachers in EVERY class! The owners have gone out of their way to make sure my son has everything he needs to be successful at their school. I will be forever grateful for their flexibility and patience. I am writing this review because I have had children enrolled at this school for over 10 years!

I use to work at this school when it first opened. This place is AMAZING. It is family and owned and operatered by Nick and Lynne Wellman. They are the nicest and most personable people you will ever meet. They have web cameras in each classroom so you can log on at work to watch your children learn (not sit around and do nothing like most day care centers do). This place is an Early Learning Center. The curriculum they use is fantastic and most of the children when entering kindergarten are advance in reading and writing. I recommend all my friends and family who live in the area to take their children to Imagination Station.

I would like to say the post that is down-grading our school is absolutely false. Not only have I worked here for 9 and a half years, but both of my children attend Imagination Station. I have a 4 year old that has been here since he was 6 weeks old and I can tell you that the teachers in the infant room are remarkable. They are so loving with the babies and NEVER would let them starve. My 9 year old that is now attending the aftercare program has been here since he was two. I would never change it for anything in the world. The owners and staff are absolutely wonderful!!! The teachers treat the children in their class as one of their own. They would never permit a child or children to hit another child constantly. We have the web cams in each of the classrooms for the parents to watch their children at the own free will. It makes the parents feel comfortable and shows that we have no fear that the parents are watching us. Please, if you read that post don't hold it against us. Please know that the children in our care always come first and they are in GREAT hands. You are all more than welcome to come and see for yourself. You def. would not be disappointed! =) Ms. Tasha Asst. Dir

I have 3 kids. One has already graduated from Imagination Station and when he did he thrived in kindergarten. My second son will soon be graduating and it is so bittersweet. He too has learned and excelled in so many areas and is more than ready for 'big boy school' as he calls it. Not to mention he has had a lot of fun along his journey. All of the teachers and office staff at I.S. are loving, caring and personable. I can not wait until my daughter starts at Imagination Station so she too can get the knowledge and love that all schools who should but don't provide!! The best pre-K ever!! Proud mom- Christy

We've been with Imagination Station for the past 4 years. They have never dissappointed us. My daughter was reading before kindergarten and now my son is in the pre-kindergarten class. This school is top notch.

My daughter is at Imagination Station ELC, and my son (now 1st Grade) graduated from there. They get a 10 star rating, if there's such a rating. Not only do they have terrific, caring teachers, but the curriculum is fantastic. My son was already reading and writing by the time he left there. My daughter is well on her way too. She's in PreK4. Not only do they have webcams for all classrooms and the playgound, but they now offer VPK, but without sacrificing their original curriculum. The Admin Staff and Owners are always on site. The place is kept super clean and equipment is always new. Great xtracurricular activities are also offered. We love this school and their fantastic staff so much! My kids are always happy to go to school. Highly recommend this Preschool. You won't regret it.

I was very happy with my experience with this preschool. The teachers were very caring and involved with his development. My son advanced very quickly and qualified for the gifted program as did many of his classmates. The staff was always loving and patient and helpful. The facilities were well kept and clean. I promote this preschool every chance I get.

Imagination Station is a 5 star school in every way. I drive out of my way to take my daughter there & would not condsider any other preschool. My son also went there several years ago. The school is so clean & so beautifically kept. The owners are on sight every day and the staff makes you feel so welcome from the first time you step through the front door. The teachers are all warm, friendly, caring & experienced. The curriculum is excellent. My kids were both reading at age 4 1/2. Like I said, I have driven out of my way for my children to go to this preschool and it is well worth it.
