We LOVE ALC! The staff is fabulous and the facility is beautiful and clean. I love never having to worry about my daughter during the day. I always know that she is in a safe and loving environment. I love the open during policy and open communication between the staff and parents. When my daughter was in the infant room, my husband was able to visit her during his lunch hour and he was always encouraged to do this. My daughter is such a happy and well-rounded child and I owe a lot of this to ALC. We just had our second child (another girl) and we are waiting for a spot to open up in the infant room. We are hoping (fingers crossed) that this happens before my maternity leave is up, because I would hate to have to send her to another program! We highly recommend ALC!

I was enthusiastically recommended ALC by a coworker whose two boys both attended and loved the center and are thriving in public elementary school now. When we needed to quickly find another child care provider for our 2.5 year-old after our in-home day care provider was diagnosed with a terminal illness, we were fortunate enough that there was an opening on short notice. With a second child on the way any day now, we had wanted to wait until after she got used to the baby before changing things up with a new school, but when we no longer had that option, we were thrilled that she adjusted extremely well to ALC when we needed to make the switch. She loves her days at ALC and openly talks to us after every day about all the fun and learning she experienced and the new friends she has made. She knew the names of and raved about all of her teachers after just a couple of days. I love that the teachers have gotten to know our child so quickly and really appreciate the personal daily verbal and written assessments when I pick her up. Very glad our daughter is enrolled in ALC. Take the negative reviews with a grain of salt, there is a distinct lack of specifics than the positive.

This school is amazing! I can not say enough about the teachers and staff at Advantage. We have found it hard to find a place that is up to our standards, but we are finally at home. ALC is clean, safe and most of all they care about your child. Our son has fun and I don't worry about him during the day! I highly recommend this school!

First, let me preface this review by stating that I am a highly critical parent. I would only express such a high rating for a place that I felt was truly deserving. My oldest child, now in kindergarten, went to Advantage Learning Center from 7 months until starting school. She was extremely well prepared for kindergarten, both academically and socially - as were the three other children in her ALC class that began kindergarten this past year in the same elementary school. Our daughter loves school, and has many friends; I attribute a large part of that to the experiences and nurturing she received at ALC. We also have a younger daughter who still attends ALC and is thriving - academically and socially. We are so very grateful to the teachers that have demonstrated kindness, patience, nuture, and love to our daughters over the years. Thank you!! As other reviews have stated, the teacher turnover rate is concerning. Yet, I think this is a challenging issue for many preschools. I believe the management has the childrens' best interest, so I have come to trust the decision making process. Overall, I highly recommend ALC. In our 5 yr experience, we have been very pleased.
