I drive farther and pay extra for my children to attend this preschool. It is unfortunate that another reviewer had a negative experience, because for the past two years I've had a great experience. "quick to meet me at the door" helps so I don't have to walk all the way in and it's better for my kids to do a quick goodbye than hang on to me as we walk in (they are very young so seperation anxiety is common at this age). I always know what my kids are learning because they will come home saying "what's that making that sound" (i know they've learned about sounds that day), or suddenly can count to 20, then to 100 by 10's, etc. I have been to other, more popular centers in town, and they feel like a preschool farm churning kids in and out without really focusing on the parents or individual kids. I, and my kids, did not like that at all. I believe "always having space" is really focusing on making sure any child that wants to attend can attend. I know they look for good teachers to work so they can add more children and give them the quality education and love they deserve. I recommend this center to everyone i talk to, and my kids will attend there for the next couple years.

Obviously things have changed at this center since 2007. If I could this center would get zero stars. My daughter's experience at this center was not positive in any manner. Communication home was poor. I was never allowed into the center while my child attended. They are quick to meet you at the door. The owner is short, rude and abrupt. She treated my child with disdain and in a very unconstructive manner. I find it hard to believe she works with children at all. But based on the prices and lack of services provided, this is all about the money. They do always seem to have space to add children so I guess other members of the community must also know this as well. I am personally embarrassed that I sent my child here at all. I have had other children in other pre-school settings and never seen such unprofessionalism . Do yourself a favor, send your child to a center that actually cares about them and is looking to help them grow and learn.

This is a great facility that has sparked a love of learning in my child. everyday she learns important things to get her ready for school like reading, writing, order of events, shapes, etc. But she is also learning compromise, working with a group, and how to do for herself. I cannot say enough good about this school.
