My son attended preschool and is currently in kindergarden at All Aboard. We've been very happy with our experience - they are almost always open (only closed on holidays), have lots of activities for the kids and teach kids at various levels. My son is in kindergarten but they are teaching him second grade math.
I am a former student of All Aboard Learning Express who is going into 6th grade. All Aboard has taught me a lot. When I entered my current school for kindergarten I found everything very easy. On the parent day they said to my mom and dad "This school year your children will learn how to write their own names and count up to 120". All Aboard had already taught me all of that. They also taught me my colors, months, days, writing the alphabet and all the numbers. Stuff we were just touching on in kindergarten. AllAboard Learning Express holds some of my most dear, fun and happiest memories of my young life.I am very thankful tot them. I don't think they can improve a thing because they have already skyrocketed into the heavens. (And that is a lot coming from an 11 year old girl!)
All Aboard Learning Express All Aboard is an amazing school. I have had my daughter here for 2 yrs. The teachers are great. My daughter has learned so much in the past 2 yrs. I will be extremely sad to leave when she goes to kinagarden. All Aboard has mad me feel very comfortable and like family!
Can't say enough about how great this school is. The teachers are so kind and helpful. Our son loves it here.
First off they only serve pizza once a week and they serve it with a salad for each child and a fruit. The school is excellent. Both of my children went to All Aboard and loved it as well as myself. I volunteered my time with the school in the past and went on all field trips with my kids. It is an excellent choice. They DO NOT GIVE JUNK FOOD EVERY DAY!
This school doesn't communicate well with parents. After sending in the appropriate paper work, I had to call to make sure that they had received everything. I never received a confirmation or a letter welcoming us to the school/camp, the dates of camp, etc. After calling to make sure they had received all the paper work I was told that they had. On the first day of summer camp, I dropped my daughter off and they tell me because my doctor didn't fax in the medical form she chouldnt' stay. We also have our daughter on the waitlist for the fall and have been told over and over that she was first on the waitlist and that they make sure that they have get all their summer campers in. After being told this over and over again they then told me that she would not be getting in and that she wasn't 1st on the list. When asked why they would continute to string us along they said "we have to make sure we fill the building." The food isn't very good either. For example, for breakfast they served cereal out of dixie cups and called that breakfast. My daughter then had donuts for snack and water and for lunch pizza. She is there early in the morning until 6 pm and only had one snack.
We could not be happier with this school! Our oldest daughter has completed 2 years of preschool, kindergarten, and 3 summers of camp and we continue to be in awe of the care and education she receives every day. Our youngest will enter preschool there this fall and we could not be more proud to provide these same opportunities for her. Thanks All Aboard, and keep up the outstanding work!!
As new parents we are thrilled with this school not only for the social/emotional nurturing but especially for the academics. We searched several schools and chose this one as we found it to be top notch. We recently had the pleasure of attending the Bowling Night Out and it was extremely fun! It was so nice to talk with other parents and the staff. When dropping off or picking up there is just never enough time. Our friends tried signing up but are on the waiting list which is quite long...just more validation to my wife and I that this is an excellent and much sought ought school. We are beyond pleased!!!
The school is exactly what we were looking for. It is well maintained, clean, and offers the academic base we wanted. The fundraiser evening was great!!! I did not attend last year and did not know what to expect but was thrilled. Again, nothing but wonderful things to say about the program, staff, and families. I am so glad we found this school.
My family has found this school to be helpful with everything from transitioning from home care to school through teaching us ways to provide positive homework habits. Each Parent Night we have attended as been lovely. With the overcrowding now relevant in our neighborhood schools the focus on academics are huge to us which is why we send our kids and will continue sending our younger ones to this school. We asked for ways to get involved in the office and were delighted to see they encourage this. Even grandma has had the change to participate! They set a great foundation academically and socially. Bravo to ALL staff and families who strive to ensure the best is provided for our children!!!!
