We love this school. Our child started out at a competing, lower-priced facility while we were waiting for an opening at LIttle Dolphin School. Little Dolphin is far superior. The Director Steve and teachers are wonderful. We feel comfortable and confident after dropping our child off here. Our child loves it and knows all teachers and all students in the other classrooms by name. The atmosphere is warm, inviting, not to mention educational and the people who work here really care for the kids. Our child loves the sand and water room, the movement room and the library and we love that there are places for our child to play aside from the classroom on a rainy/cold/snowy day.

This school is amazing! I never worry about my daughter when I leave her for a day of fun and learning. The staff is wonderful and the truely feel like family. The owner Steve is friendly and knowledgeable. The facility is state-of-the-art, lots of wonderful and exciting choices for the children. The grounds are safe and secure, as well as warm and inviting.

An Exceptional school to send your child. My child has egg and peanut allergies and I never have to worry about her meals or snacks. It is all taken care of by the school. If she can not have what is on the menu that day they will make every attempt to feed her the same food minus the allergen ingredients. The teachers are wonderful and caring. I would recommend this school in a heartbeat.

A wonderfully warm and inviting center, The Little Dolphin School is a rare beacon of hope in educating young children. As an educator I truly appreciate the caring and trained staff, the clean beautiful facility, and the comprehensive services offered including catered meals.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. 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.
