DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE! I came on on various times and the kids were watching TV. That is 100% unacceptable. The care is NOT good. After i pulled my kids out they never once mentioned or asked to go back. This school recently lost universal preK accreditation from the state. My children came here from another preschool for about 12 weeks- during those 12 weeks i felt my children became significantly dumber. Do not even get me started on the principal- she is annoying to say the least. I highly recommend that if you value the education your children get you AVOID this place. I came here on the recommendation of a friend- a friend that ended up pulling both of her kids out after learning about how significantly unprepared a family members child was after their PreK program. That is not acceptable- kids that go through preK should be prepared if the preK did anything right. Clearly they do not. This place infuriates me and the TV thing really got on my nerves- my 2 year old should not be watching TV in daycare. THAT IS NOT WHAT I WAS PAYING FOR.

I was happy with this school. It came recommended to me from a friend and I have recommended it to others. The equipment is not new, nor would you be impressed with the equipment, but the care is good. My daughter loved it, and I felt that her teacher took interest in her and the other children. If I did not switch employment I would have enrolled my second daughter there two.

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.
