It is by far, several knotches above any other school we have had our two children enrolled in (and weve tried several) in the past. We have two children in the school now and they absolutely love it. The Director, Ms Krystal, is extremely attentive to the needs of the children and parents and very professional in her dealings with us and the staff. You can certainly tell she cares about the quality of the school in all aspects. Her door is always open to us as parents....She does not let any parent's question or issue go unanswered. This communication is amazing. In addition, the teachers weve had are also great. Ms Ashley is Awesome! she is so attentive and patient yet a really great (degreed) teacher. My 3 yr old could not write a single letter and in 3 months is writing his name! My 2 year old, no kidding, asks about his school sometimes even on Saturdays lol! I wish i could keep my little ones there forever...We Love "Creme" Allen!! This school is worth every penny.
SUPER attentive when we went to the open house, right up until they got our (hefty) -supposed to be refundable - deposit to hold my son's spot. THEN, NO ANSWER to ANY calls, questions. Decided to NOT ENROLL him after all. We were told by their "Financial Director" to expect a refund in 2 weeks. 3 MONTHS-no check. Called back-Executive Director said her Financial Director had quit in Jan. and this had "fallen through the cracks"-expect a check in 2 weeks. 3 weeks-no check. Called back. She said "I am calling my home office right now, let me call you right back". She then called and said "the person at the home office is on vacation, I will follow up on Monday and call you". Monday - NO CALL. Tuesday I called, she said "we had a picnic over the weekend and some things came up, I totally forgot, but I will check with the home office again and call you right back". NO CALLBACK. Called again on Wednesday and she wouldn't take my call, had the receptionist tell me she had "made a few calls and would get right back to me". If this is the way their administration handles a simple refund, I can only be even MORE CONVINCED that NOT ENROLLING my son in this school was the BEST DECISION.
I have to say I have been impressed with Cr me de la Cr me in Allen from the beginning. My daughter's teacher is amazing. She is absolutely wonderful with the children and extremely creative. My daughter has learned so much and loves going to school each day. She loves the fact that she can do her homework and is excited to do math. I am very pleased with the staff; they are very nurturing and caring. They balance learning, fun & rest, with indoor & outdoor activities. It is a comfortable environment for children to learn, play and grow.
Very warm, very comfortable and very stimulating environment!! My Grandson is studying in Cr me de la Cr me preschool. I believe we believe that the 1st few years of a child s life are critical 4 their developmental foundation. And Cr me de la Cr me preschool fulfilled my expectations. Their teachers are able to build child s both receptive & expressive language skills. They include not only group time but also uninterrupted individual time. Their building specifically designed; allows the curriculum & our teachers to maximize child's potential. As a teacher experience in my young life I would give this school 100% mark.....!!
I would highly recommend Cr me de la Cr me Preschool in Allen. My son went there when he was 3 all the way up to when he graduated from preschool proudly with cap and gown. The teachers are all very gentle, caring and nurturing to the kids. They ensure your child receives quality early education. The kids are well rounded and the school teaches high academics and yet they incorporate fun time, socialization and encouraged play time and talent. my little girl who is now 4 is attending the school now and I appreciate how well they welcomed her as the teachers remembered her as a baby and the cycle continues...I ve never been happier sending my kid to this school as I can be at home or work and I know that my kid is well taken care of and she is just as very happy as well.
The people at Cr me s Early Learning Centre of Excellence Preschool are so genuinely interested in my son. They were patient and reassuring with me during the initial "separation anxiety" (both mine and my son's) and encouraged me to check in during the day to put my mind at ease. He now LOVES going to school there and has learned so many new skills that I would not have thought him capable of. He knows all his letters, most of his phonics, is counting and talking up a storm and he is only 2 years 2 months. He knows how to share/take turns, and clean up after himself (with guidance of course). Not to mention all the great songs he comes home singing. Often times I go to pick him up and he is reluctant to leave his friends and the wonderful toys and teachers. I highly recommend Cr me s Preschool!
It's hard to find good and reliable schools nowadays. Busy as I am always, I entrust most of the "educating" to my daughter's teachers. I hope that doesn't make me a bad parent, but, with 3 kids, a demanding job, I am spreading myself too thin just so I can perform my responsibility as a parent and a wife. No, I'm not complaining. Above all, I'm thankful to Creme for helping out my daughter with her school life. She couldn't be happier. She loves going to Creme and be with other fantastic kids and learning from good-skilled, comforting and nurturing teachers.
One of the joys of being a parent is to see your child happy. It tears our hearts to see them sad and neglected. I am definite my son likes his new school because he is always happy. It's like buying his favorite toy - he is all smiles and you can see the twinkle in his eyes. Perhaps the reason for Creme de la Creme's success is that they found a formula to make their system appealing for kids to learn and at the same time enjoy life in school. Kids' minds are easily changeable. But once they developed a certain liking for something, you can see the glow in their faces and they don't hide the fact that they are delighted.
It never occurred to me that my son would turn out to be an outstanding student in school. When he was born, he was very sickly. Then he started walking just when most kids his age were already running. His speech was also developed later than what is usual. So when we enrolled him at Creme de la Creme, we were just too happy and contented to see him having a grand time with other kids. Imagine how thrilled we were when he progressed faster than most kids in school. His teachers did an amazing job on him. They helped him and guided him to become better. When we learned that he is one of the best students in class, my wife and I were speechless. We are forever grateful to his teachers for their wonderful support and guidance.
Every time I see my daughter talks about her school activities and how much she delights being with other kids and having very cool and good teachers, I feel like all my hard work has paid off. She then kisses and hugs me and thanks me for her very good school. This ultimately makes me feel like the Father of the Decade. From the time I started working till I got married to my wonderful wife, I have always saved money to be able to afford to send my kids to the best school. I have no doubt in my mind and heart my daughter will grow up to be a fine and smart woman. As I see her now and how much she loves her school, I am confident she is off to a good start. I am happy that Creme de la Creme is my partner in providing a solid upbringing for my precious princess.
