My oldest was in the VPK program and he had started off learning at a slower pace than most of the other kids but by the end of the school year he was on track with the rest and now excels beyond the kids in his kindergarten class. My youngest will be starting VPK in the fall and he is so excited to be in the same class as his older brother. The staff is very friendly and I've never had an issue with any of the teachers. The building itself is kind of small but they make it work.I can't comment about the day care they provide but if you're looking for a great preschool learning experience, this is the place to go.

My son is attending the VPK program here. I was very impressed with the curriculum, but soon came to realize that his teacher could not handle his strong headed character and utilized appaling grammar even though she was teaching my child to read. Recently a new director started and she is AMAZING! She overhauled the whole institution and the changes in my son were apparent almost instantly. I would recommend this program to everyone!

Our main reason for moving was my son was in the infant room and the woman who took care of him in the mornings smelled like a walking ash tray every time we dropped him off. My son got a cold and it took him 3 weeks to get over it, the doc said being around people who smoke make it 2 times harder for infants to get over a cold. Other reasons for leaving: at the end of the day they try to minimize staff so they bring toddlers into the infant room, I can't tell you how many times I saw a toddle run up to my son, take his pacifier and put it in his mouth then give it back to my son. They give the toddlers Ritz crackers and they eat them while running around the infant room, on 2 occasions I saw a piece of cracker fall on the floor and an infant with no teeth get a hold of it, could you imagine if the infant had choked on it. They started giving my son gas drops without my permission, until the day he left daycare they were still giving him gas drops WITHOUT my permission and I never figured out whose drops they were. Needless to say we got out of there as SOON as we could. Although some of the staff members were very sweet I still DO NOT recommend this day care one bit.
