Elegant Child is truly a home away from home for infants and an exceptional school for children!! We love the administrators, teachers, and nurses. Everyone there is amazing!! They love your children like their own and give them an exceptional environment to learn and grow! It's a true gem in our community!!

The Elegant Child hires teachers who are not certified to be in the classroom. My daughter was in a classroom where the teacher verbally abused her. She did not want to go to school. She used to love it until this teacher. The owner only cares about the money. I have never seen her once in a classroom checking on or holding a child. I just think it is all about our money there. Definitely wouldn't recommend it.

My son has been a student at the Elegant Child since he was one. I can't tell you how comfortable I am leaving him at this center all day! Every concern I have ever had (most of them from being a single mom who worries too much) have been addressed immediately. I have even gotten personal calls from the owner and director both to follow up and check on how he was doing. It is hard leaving him all day but when I drop him off and he turns around smiles and waves bye and is still smiling when I pick him up it is all worth it. My son was also born a micro preemie which means his development was delayed. The staff has worked with him, communicated his triumphs and helped me along the way too. He has now caught up to his peers and I credit EC!

Elegant Child is an outstanding daycare that puts your child's learning first. I has a huge enrollment but never feels big. The classes are small and the facilities are very intimate.

My daughter (only 22 months) has a smile on her face everyday! I love how caring and nurturing her teachers are with her. She comes home with art work that we can refer to when reading books at home (colors/shapes/objects/themes). I love her Toddler II room teachers! Keep up the wonderful work - - we love Elegant Child!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
