I have a 2 year old daughter int he toddler program,, She loves it! When we drop her off at ESCC she barely says bye to Mom or Dad, and when we pick her up she doesn't want to leave. The teachers are caring and communicative to me. They also provide direction to the children, but allow them some freedom to explore their world and creativity. The building is a bit dated, but the toys, room, bathrooms are extremely clean and they have a many different toys for the children to play with. I also like the fact that the school provides a "teacher/parent"conference mid year with a progress report for your child's social, language and motor skills. I would recommend this day care setting for toddler and preschool care.

I have sent all three of my kids here. The teachers are so caring and understanding! My kids loved them! Setting is very clean compared to some of the other settings I have visited. Afternoon teachers are so fun and kids enjoy their afternoon sessions. I've always felt comfortable leaving my children here for the whole day and never had to worry about them. I am going to miss quality care my kids received, as my younger one is old enough and is about to leave the center. I recommend Early Start Children's Center for all those parents who are looking for a full day program.

I would agree, I felt that my child was lost in the crowd. I felt that the children did not get the individual care that they would of gotten if they had been in a smaller in-home childcare placement. I pulled my children out.

Early start is adequate for childcare, but I would not say it is a great start for educational readiness. The facility is cluttered and the 1/2 day kindergarten program is small. There seemed to be a lack of creative art work and the school has no reading or math programs. I was not happy with the facility and overall felt that it was not stimulating and educational for a child who is five and needs to get prepared for first grade.

Parents, if you are looking for a good school for your child(ren) to go to for preschool or daycare etc. then this is definitely the school for you! I went to their other school in Dracut,MA. I loved it! My teachers were great, and we did so much that was fun and educational at the same time. I'm now eleven years old and thanks to Kathy's Building Blocks with teachers Kathy, Joan, and Carol I still use all the information and important things I learned several years ago everyday. If you want a good school for your children to have fun but also educated at the same time, then I promise you, Early Start Children's Center is the place to send them! -Sincerely, Tyler Dumont Former Student

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.
