I currently have my second child enrolled in Galaxy Ranch. My oldest son attended Galaxy Ranch from age 2 until he left for kindergarten. His experience was phenomenal! He loved school, had great teachers, and truly learned so much. Although he was a young five year old, he was academically ready for kindergarten. With that being said, there was no question as to where my youngest son would go. My younger son has some developmental issues (i.e. speech impairment, requiring speech therapy, sensory issues, etc.). His teacher, as well as the director, have continuously worked well with him (and us). He has made a great deal of progress, and I can't help but believe it has a lot to do with the determination and patience Galaxy Ranch has shown. It is a pricey school, but in our opinion, you can't put a price on education and development.

This was my children's first "daycare" experience, ages 4 & 5. The first week was very hard for us all... but since then, we have had a totally wonderful, educational experience. My kids who are very timid and shy, have learned more in their short time there then I could have anticipated, both academically and socially, and they absolutely love going to school and I have no doubt they will be ready for Public Kinder. They offer some extra-carricular classes during their time there as well that has been another great experience for my children. I couldn't ask for more caring and professional teachers and staff. Not perfect but I am extremely happy with Galaxy Ranch. It is a little more pricey than other "daycares" but just take a tour and you will see why...

Galaxy Ranch is simply an overpriced babysitter. It was highly recommended by other parents sending their children here. Now, I can only assume the recommendations were simply to justify spending that kind of money on a school. My first complaint is at age 3 they placed my son with children that would be in his same grade at school. The issue is my son was often 6-9 months older than the rest of the kids in his class, and therefore was never really challenged by the teachers. So far, 5 weeks into Kindergarden, we have been notified of continual behavioral issues including refusal to complete the required work, refusal to sit and leave classmates alone, as well as a small altercation where he hit a classmate. Today, he came home with a "sight word" test, where he scored 1 out of 4 words correctly. Some of the issues can be attributed to his strong personality. However, he is not the only child I know who has spent more than a year at Galaxy Ranch only to begin school with similar behavioral issues. At this point, I can only contrast the potential that I initially saw versus the reality of how my son is doing in a real school.
