This school is a good value. Class sizes are large, my three year old had 24 kids in his room. I love that a lot of the teachers are also parents with kids who are also at alphabits. The playgrounds are adequate and the sandboxes are huge, which is my sons favorite activity. My oldest is now in the preK room and his teacher tells me he will be reading by the end of this year. My youngest is 2 and is currently potty training which is handled very well at this school. The reason we went to this school two years ago was becuase my youngest had reflux and was most comfortable in a swing and this center allows swings in the baby rooms. As a matter of fact there are swings from the ceiling in most of the baby rooms. The summer programs are fantastic also, filled with theme weeks.
Fortunately for me I will be able to pick up my granddaughter on her last day at Alpha-Bits. She has attended the school since she was a baby. I will be able to thank in person the great staff employed there. Her teachers have been absolutely great and such a wonderful influence on her. She is a smart and very inquistive child of six. I certainly am in awe of such dedication. Thank you all for the "Alpha-Bit Kids"
My two year old goes to this school. We call it school and not daycare. He has already learned so much. He knows all his numbers, and colors and letters. He knows just about all of the letter sounds and can name words that start with each letter. This is great for his age. He just likes learning here. They don't push him and he has tons of play time. It's been great for his social skills as well. It also helps that he has the same teachers for the whole year. They really get to know him and what his strengths and weaknesses are. He's grown so much being there. I have always found the administration to be friendly. They are incredible sticklers about rules and paperwork. I'm assuming they are this way about late payments as well. Maybe that's the root of the negative posts? I don't know. We've always paid on time, so I've always had very pleasant encounters with the office staff. I can't think of anything I don't like about my son going here.
I have to say the teachers at this school are wonderful. My oldest son was in Pre-K this year and his teacher went above and beyond to help me with some of the issues my son had. My other child was downstairs in the potty train room. I loved 2 of the 3 teachers,the other one was ok but not my favorite. I am amazed at home much my children have learned. As for the office staff, the only one who is pleasant is Jason. The other woman just want your money and treat you as though your below them. Luckily I do not have to deal with them often. If you want a great school I would look there, but don't go by the staff at the front desk unless it's Jason sitting there.
