You get what you pay for. This school is inexpensive for a reason - they do not go above and beyond for your child. If you are OK with mediocre childcare at a great price, then this is the place for you. But if you want quality care from educators who truly care for your child, then go elsewhere. There are some good teachers here but the directors leave much to be desired. They are quickly overwhelmed by the smallest of issues (e.g., children not listening during circle time) and not equipped to handle larger issues (e.g., children not listening on a daily basis). They have an outside counselor that is supposed to observe "problem" children and provide feedback. But the ironic thing is that the counselor usually gives the SCHOOL feedback on what they're doing wrong with the child - and of course the directors don't take her advice. My feeling is that the directors are either not skilled enough or too overwhelmed or both. In any case, until things change at the top there, this school will only be mediocre at best.

I wish I had originally chosen Beaver Creek for my son when he started day care at 6 months old. He's now 2 and after being disappointed with two other centers in the area, we are now very happy with our choice. Beaver Creek is a great combination of learning, fun, and a caring environment. He's moved up to the next classroom a few times already and the transition is always easy. The teachers and staff there are wonderful and seem to really care about the children. Having 2 snacks and lunch provided has been a huge relief. The cost and fees are reasonable and meals/snacks/drinks provided helps with that too. Their field trips and activities are also wonderful. The outdoor play area is great and my son loves that there are actually swings, slides, and cars to play with. They provide additional shade with a canopy during the hot summer months too. My son always seems happy when I pick him up and I know I will be able to trust them with excellent care for my 2nd son after his arrival.

I moved my 2 year old to Beaver Creek in September. They made the transition so easy. I am so happy with the care my child receives there and the customer service I receive. I am so impressed with how they handle all situations. They have great field trips and music weekly. The price is reasonable. After the center flooded in September, the directors and staff worked so hard to have things return to normal very quickly. My son loves it so much that he asks to go every day and cries when he has to stay home sick. My older son also loves it when he goes to drop in care or for the parents nights out. I could not be happier with Beaver Creek and have recommended to other families. The teachers in my son's room are amazing. I can really see him taking leaps in learning and he clearly has so much fun there. Another plus is that they provide breakfast, lunch, and snack every day. And they have my two year old eating salad!

My daughters have been attending Beaver Creek since June 2009. I have found the pre-k and aftercare programs to be wonderful. They help with homework in the aftercare program and the pre-k teachers are great. There are so many activities for them during the summer camp programs with lots of field trips and crafts. The teachers have been very understanding and helpful with issues that my girls have had. I am always greeted with smiles and sent home with a feeling that they actually look forward to seeing the kids again tomorrow. My girls look forward to their days there and love seeing whats next on their monthly calendars.
