We took our grandchildren out of this school after watching the quality decline for well over a year. The director promised improvements in staff and curriculum, but nothing changed. The teachers seemed untrained and were not engaged with the kids. In some classes, the teacher's children / relatives were also students and were treated differently than the other pupils. In a few instances, we picked up our kids with scratches - obviously from finger nails - and the teacher had no recollection of any incident. There are a number of great pre-schools in the Reno - Sparks area. If you're looking for a quility early childhood education, I would suggest you keep looking...

This school has sent kindergartners out of it completely unprepared for 1st grade. The last class of kindergartners (9 students), have at least 5 out of 9 that were failing first grade and struggling. After the parents brought it to the attention, the school has decided that behavior was an issue for their "lack of learning"-great babysitter for the kids, not exactly ideal for education and some of the teachers don't mind talking in a rude manner to the children-appears this place isn't what it used to be, I am very disappointed with Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada for not making sure that this school offers the best anymore. If you have an issue, don't expect it to be taken care of, they will do all they can to make you the parent feel like their failure is actually yours. Bummer.

Holy Child Early Learning Center is a high quality learning environments that meet health and safety standards, as well as developmental standards creating the foundation for children s future academic achievement. As one of the few nationally accrediated centers in our community - this is the place to go. High quality services, that's affordable for families.

We sent both of our children to HCDH for preschool, the oldest of which attended through kindergarden. We were very happy with the caring staff and involved administration. The director knows and greets every child making them feel very special. The classes are very organized with daily, weekly, and monthly lessons plans available for parents. I always knew my children were very well cared for. True the school does not have an accelerted learning kindergarden program as another parent expressed disappointment over, but it is a day home/day care facility with a kindergarden. My oldest has continued in a private catholic school of which I expect more from hence the Private. If you want private/catholic/accelerated then go to such. HCDH has a wide diversity both ethnic and fiancial. It has been a wonderful experience for both my children as well as myself.
