Not a great daycare. We found that in general, the caregivers were reasonable and were not the problem (probably class dependent). However, management in this place is absolutely terrible. They do not listen to parents' concerns, and if you have an issue they tend to make things up to make it sound okay. Management is also extremely "artificial," and I have the impression they do not allow the caregivers to speak openly to the parents. This is a real issue! How can you leave your child with a caregiver that cannot speak freely with the parents? I have to say, for being the most expensive day care we found in the area, we are not impressed. I certainly cannot say your child will not do well and like this school, but do take care and be sure this environment is right for your child.

My daughter has been here for a little over a year now and I couldn't imagine her going anywhere else. I am a former preschool teacher and daycare provider and I was very picky when it came to choosing a school for my own child. It is a little more expensive than the other schools in the area, but it is completely worth the money. My daughter is excited to be there every morning and has learned much more than I expected. Even at a 1 or 2 year old level, this is definitely much more than daycare. The teachers and the management are wonderful and helpful and the school is always clean.

Best in the area I've seen! My daughter's been there since 3 mos & is now 17mos. I've checked the area schools, some multiple times, and this is the best I've seen as far as wonderful care, structure, & cleanliness. The infant staff was extremely knowledgable for me as a new mom.

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.
