Through developmentally appropriate practices, the staff at East Side provide an environment where honesty, integrity, and fairness is not only encouraged and taught, but where it is modeled by the staff.
My 5y/o son is attending their summer program and so far it has been a good experience for him. The staff is very friendly and helpful, I love the swimming lesson and it is affortable. He comes home very happy and excited to return. The reason I only gave 3 stars is because; my son came home one day wearing another boys underwear...yuck. And the bus they use for field trips only has lap belts which is not safe. They do have a harness available which I have asked that my son use when on the bus but 4 & 5y/o kids in lap belts is irresponsible.
My son has been attending Eastside for 2 years and it has been an incredible experience. Lots of involvement in activities to keep kids excited and interested in learning. Amazing teachers that are always patient and encouraging. Their summer program is great. My son went from being afraid of water to actually swimming within just a couple of weeks. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a preschool program.
My almost 8 year old son has been attending Eastside Learning Center since he was 3 years old. He attended the preschool program there for 2 years and has attended their summer day camp program for 4 years. The experienced staff are both friendly and wonderful to work with. If your child has a fear or needs special accomodations, they are more than willing to tailor their program to your child's needs. The summer program is fun filled and includes swim lessons, which are taught by licensed swim instructors. I give this program 2 thumbs up and recommend it to anyone looking for preschool, afterschool/before school care, and a summer program.
