I had 3 boys that attended this school. My oldest was always bored because they never did activities his age. My 2 year old was always coming home with an incident report because of the lack of teachers to students he was always getting bit by another student or hit by another student. My youngest was 6 months at the time and he was always in his crib at pick up time. He would be crying or just sitting in the crib because another infant's mother was the teacher and she was more concerned with her child then with the others. Some times at pick up my child would be watched by a 16 year old because teachers were needed in other rooms! I don't see how this facility is still open without having the correct staffing.

My daughter has been going to The Growing Years for over a year now. This is the best school in the Manchester area. The teachers are attentive and caring! Everyone that works there knows my daughter and cares tons about her. The love that is in this school is tremendous! They are very supportive and willing to work with you!

Both my children attended The Growing Years and loved it! My daughter, now 9, is still best friends with someone who also attended. My son who is now a second grader still talks about how much fun it was whenever we drive by. I believe the teachers care about each child and the atmosphere is great for the children. The school has made life easier for my husband and I with our busy work schedules. I would strongly recommend it!

I have 3 children whop attended The Growing years since they were 4 moths old. My oldest (age 9) and middle (age 7) are now in school - both doing very well and I really feel their early educstion is a big part of this. My daughter (age 4) still attends and loves it. The owner and Directors are fantastic and responsive. I would have quit my job a long time ago had it not been for this day care. There is nothing more important than knowing that while you work your kids are safe, happy and enriched.

The growing years is a nice center, very well kept and professional, but i pulled my infant because of the number of infants in a small cluttered room. The children were not fully taken care of because of the amount of children to staff. The other rooms were very bland and didnt look like much curriculum was being done during the day.

I have three boys. My oldest 2, now 6 and 2, both attend the growing years. I have been a parent there for years. We love the open concept idea. I think that the staff works very hard to accomadate almost anyone. They are caring individuals who give alot of there time and efforts to keeping our boys safe. As soon as our youngest is old enough he will be enrolled as well.

I have one boy that went there and another son that still attends. My son asks me every day what is on the calendar and what will I learn today. He only goes 3 day a week, and the days that he doen't attend, the teacher puts homework in his folder so he can have fun at home doing it like his big brother. The staff has been very kind, understanding and loving. I will miss the school as my youngest will start kindergarten in the fall.

Having had a foster child enrolled in this school for a short time, I was appalled at the lack of stimulation I hardly saw any interaction at all between staff and children.
