Every month me husband and I get a "take home" project to complete with our son. It is adorable. The teachers display the work in the classroom and it helps in getting to know other families. My son is always happy. I've walked in at all hours of the day, announced and unannounced, and always see the same thing. Happy kids/happy teachers/happy environment. The approach from the teachers is warm and honest. I "believe" their love for their job and especially my son. OUTSTANDING. Hidden gem.
Early Years Kindergarten: My Granddaughter has been attending here since she was a year old. She is now almost three. Her teachers, Miss Allison, Miss Leah, Miss Kendall and Miss Jessica are wonderful. Our whole family is impressed by the learning and nurturing that takes place there! It is comforting to me that my granddaughter is in such great hands and that she looks forward to going to "school" each day!!
Early Years Kindergarten & Child Care combines traditional classroom and curriculum learning with experiential learning through nature so incredibly well. The teachers are thorough and caring and you can always have such peace of mind knowing that your children are experiencing Early Years.
Early Years makes a huge effort to make the us, the parents, feel incredibly comfortable. This happens through the close connection with the teacher's, the incredibly clear bond the teacher's/student's have developed. There is charm, colorfulness and attention to detail displayed throughout the facility. The teacher's go overboard in making our child feel welcome, self-assured and a part of it all. Which, in turn, makes my days away from him- not as bad! :)
It's so nerve wracking looking for a place to leave an infant. I was shocked by how comfortable I immediately was when I visited Early Years in the spring with my 8 week old baby. Now, my son (though I am jealous) is sooo attached to the teachers. The way the teacher's comfort the children and conduct their work with such ease even in stressful situations is so refreshing. I am absolutely ecstatic I found this gem. It's almost as if I want to keep it my little secret- but I thought I'd share my good fortune here with others.
Well Early Years is not all that it seems to be. Not all kids HAVE to go to readiness which is overly pushed by the director. My child did exceptionally well without readiness- actually a high honor student.
I love Early Years, I don't worry about my kids when they are there. The teachers are indeed like a family and genuinely love and care for the kids. My kids enjoy every minute they spend there. The school's hands on approach of academic programs are doing wonders for my kids.
