I have a 15 month old girl enrolled at PVCS. I was a stay at home mom for the first year and I cannot express enough how much being at PVCS has made her blossom. We absolutely love the staff and are 100% confident dropping off our daughter there three times a week. The teachers love on her and almost spoil her! (In a good way) PVCS is like family for my daughter. She feels safe and happy with them and it shows at home when I am with her. I am so grateful to have found this school!

PVCS is an absolute gem! I've toured dozens of care centers and have had infants in two other corporate centers and I am thrilled to have made PVCS my home away from home for my kids. While some infant rooms boast to have ratios better than the state guidelines (5:1, 11:2), they fail to understand that at a certain point, it doesn't matter how many teachers you have if you have so many babies in the room that they're crawling on top of one another. That scenario is chaotic and becomes questionable as to whether the child's needs are being met. Director Terry understands the need for personal attention and caps the infant room to 4 babies. My son is delighted to explore and play at school with his playmate and adores Teacher Victoria who loves the babies like they are her own. I even receive periodic pictures and videos via text with little glimpses into his learning and development for the day. It's a truly unique & refreshing experience!

I have a 10 month old who has been in daycare since 3 months old. We have been to two prior schools before the Co-op. He is the type of child who rarely cries and as a result was never held or picked up except to get fed or have a diaper change. It wasn't that the staff did not care but because ratios is these schools were horrendous- 5 to 1 up to 12 to 1! He would whimper when we would pull up to his old schools and cry when I'd come to pick him up.Near the end of my time at the last school he started to have stranger danger and was overall more anxious. I decided to look for a school that would have a better ratio and would be able to give him more attention. We moved to PV Co-op almost 2 months ago and already I have seen a huge change in him. He babbles and smiles more and loves going to school. He no longer has stranger danger and is back to his old sweet tempered self. The most fabulous part is that the current student-teacher ratio is 2 to 1!Every time I go to pick him up someone is either playing with him, talking to him, feeding him or in some way interacting with him if he is not asleep. I have been so overjoyed with my experience at the co-op.

PVCS is like our family. My daughters love to go and all the teachers and staff are always welcoming. l love that I can just come at anytime of the day and see what they are doing. Being part of a coop school is a great way to be involved in all my daughters learning experience. My daughters have grown in their learning and also in there social skills. I feel being able to talk about feelings with friends is so important and love that this is part of their experience everyday.
