Happy with the teachers. They are always friendly and caring. At drop off they are busy, but still find the time to ask how are night was. At pick up I am able to talk with the teachers and the other students parents in the room. I never feel rushed. The people who work there are genuine and love the children. I will be sad when my son can no longer stay do to his age. They will be missed
My 3 year old son loves the Orangeroom. He feels so comfortable when he is there. They get out twice a day to the park or for a walk. That is very important to me. The nap time is great also. 1 to 130. If the children are not asleep then they can play at tables with quiet choices. That works for me. He is not a napper. My overall take on this daycare is very nice. They are fun, caring and love all the children. Most of the teachers have children of their own . Leaving my son at school is just like me being with him. That is how genuine they are.
I recommend this school because I believe they are the best around Somerville, they are so caring and all the kids always get the attention they need. Eleni is my daughter's teacher and she is just amazing, my daughter loves her and loves going to this school. All the teachers at The Learning circle are well prepared and really nice.
My daughter looks forward to going to school at TLC each day. She comes home with art projects and academic writing sheets everyday and it makes me feel completely at ease to send her off to kindergarten this fall. Her teachers keep me up to date on anything that happens throughout the day and I am comfortable leaving her in their care. If you are a nervous parent (as I was) I assure you that this is a great place for your children!
I couldn't be happier with my choice of enrolling at the learning circle. As a first-time parent I was nervous and overwhelmed by the entire daycare search process. Michelle at the front desk was so helpful during my tour and answered all of my questions and more. My son who is 17 months old eased right into one of the toddler rooms and has made so many friends (as have my husband and I). The teachers have been wonderful, informative, and are never afraid to give me suggestions which I find helpful as a first time parent!
As a parent of a child who attends The Learning Circle, I find the review below to be false and inaccurate. The Learning Circle has provided my family with the reassurance and comfortability that our children are well cared for in our absence. The school's policies are in place for specific reasons and parents are made aware of these policies prior to enrolling at the school. I have found this to be very reasonable and as a parent have made the necessary accommodations in advance. As far as snow days, this past winter was a crazy one in Boston, and The Learning Circle remained open for several of the days when the public schools were closed. All of my interactions with the staff, including the Owner and her team of directors have been positive and pleasant. All of the teachers I have interacted with have been friendly and nurturing to my children. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this school to anyone as it provides the highest quality of care and is very reasonably priced!!!
Teachers are great however the administration is tyrannical and don't seem to realize that parents of their student have jobs that require them to show up for work. Pros: interactive teachers that care Cons: pay for 12 months of care but only receive 10.5 months of services because they take 2 weeks of vacation each year which you pay for but they aren't open. They also are closed 15 holidays meaning you need to find alternative care for those extra days. They cancel daycare whenever the city of Somerville declares a snow emergency ( typically 2-3 days each winter) which you are still charged. Summary: teachers don't make up for the inconveniences this center creates. Advice is to look elsewhere
