My older son went here from ages 4-6, and my younger one is there now. It's a great day care - we have used three, and this is one of the best.

Many of my family members have attended including me. The school has been blessed with the same staff for over a decade (which is rare in daycare). I'm proud to say this school is one of my family traditions. I'm sending all of my children here.

My daughter just started this school in September, part time for Pre-K. She loves it! Her two teachers are such great people, very patient and understanding and they are helping her adapt to learning new stuff every week. I love when I pick her up and she has 15 papers in her cubby that she's colored for me and calls it her 'work'.

I changed jobs 2.5 years ago and was not happy with the current daycare/preschool they were in. I stumbled upon Children's Gather's and it's was the best discovery I made. My older daughter spent 2 years there before going to kindergarden as is back for summer camp. My younger daughter started at the owner's in home daycare and then moved down to the preschool. Both girls and I, love the loving, caring Teachers and the wonderful way the school is run. I wouldn't have traded my or my daughter's experience with Children's Gathering.

We moved from out of state and this was the most convenient school. I didn't realize the value I was getting when signing my kids up. The built environment is modest but clean. The best thing was the teachers and their method of talking and teaching the kids. There's love and consistency in every interaction. Every parent can learn from them! Since then I've moved out of state again. I've found childcare that had many more amenities but I cannot find the quality of care that my kids had while at The Children's Gathering. I highly recommend it!

The school has been a blessing for my daughter. They promote exploration of interests, morales and values, curiosity, as well as academics. They work with children as individuals- not as 'cogs in a wheel' that need to adapt to the accepted model as we had seen in our previous preschool. The school does 'in-house' field trips by bringing in city figures such as the fire chief or professional storytellers. They also learn swimming at the school pool during summer months. The Christian methodology is presented in a balanced way. Themes such as 'respecting yourself' are mixed in with music and prayers. Parents appear to be involved and willing to help. Monthly, parents bring in snack for the entire class to help offset costs fairly. Year end 'graduations' are highly attended. Teachers are warm, friendly, involved and helpful. 'Stations' for reading, science, writing and art are set up around the room. It's a wonderful environment.
