Enep'ut Children's Center is a rustic, loving environment that I was initially hesitant about bringing my baby too. But wow how this place grows on you! The lead teachers are wonderful. My child is told good morning and good bye everyday and everyone knows his name. Its like a cheers episode! Where do you find that kind of love? Where everybody knows your name :). lol

I'm really happy my son spends his days at Enep'ut. He loves his teachers and his always has artwork to bring home and stories to tell about his day. The preschool staff - particularly the lead teacher - is kind, patient, and always willing to talk about how my son's doing. I like the attention they pay to art projects, and I really love the themed weeks - countries of the world, the solar system, etc. My son loves Fun Fridays. It's a really nice place for little kids. I also like that parents are kept informed about what's going on with the center, as far as remodeling, training days, future plans, etc. The center has been transitioning in the past year, with a new director and new staff, so there have been the concomitant bumps in the road. I feel like they're really getting their feet back under them, and the staff is wonderful. And yes, the building is old. So is my house. That part doesn't matter as long as it's a safe, clean, welcoming place for kids and it absolutely is.

Our daughter has been with Enep'ut since she was just a few months old. She loves the place, and so do we. She has a gluten intolerance that the caregivers have dealt with carefully and cheerfully. Enep'ut has curriculum planned by its trained staff. She has regularly surprised us with the things she learns. We like the personal, family atmosphere, and we recommend you give the place a visit if you're looking for daycare.

My son s been at Enep ut for 4 years. He receives quality care given with love and patience. He has a lot of willful independence and Enep ut is a good fit. At 3 we put him in another preschool valuing perfect behavior over enthusiasm and he really suffered. Enep ut welcomed us back with love and understanding. The bad reviews should be taken with a big grain of salt. There s some fact in what was written but most of it doesn t ring true. The building is old but safe. The inside was improved a lot this year. The Director did change twice recently, but a parent who s gotten involved as a member of the non-profit would know why that was necessary and beneficial. The staff does get training and educational support. There s a good curriculum you can review weekly on the website. Enep ut isn t perfect but it s also not sponsored by a larger entity (i.e. a hospital or church) and it survives only on tuition and some small funding from grants and charitable gaming. For Enep ut to thrive instead of survive it needs involved parents who want to contribute their time and energy. Consider all the reviews, but I urge you to visit and decide for yourself whether it s right for your family.
