LLELC fosters an environment where the children work together and think of others. An example of this is when they are doing activities in the classroom. The different "stations are designed for 1-4 "friends" and Henriette (and staff) do an excellent job at making sure that kids are sharing and working together. Both of my children have formed solid friendships at school, ones that I know will go beyond LLELC.
I appreciate so much that this facility is bright, cheerful and CLEAN. So many times schools/daycares aren't to the standard of cleanliness that they should be. LLELC is always clean and Henreitte (and her staff) in turn teach the kids proper cleanliness. (washing hands, cleaning up after your self etc) Our daughter will start kindergarten in the fall and we feel that this has been a PERFECT way to prep her for school. As my children transition out of her care in the next couple of years, I'll continue to recommend LLELC as an exceptional place for kids.
We've been with LifeLong Early Learning Center (LLELC) for almost 2 years and would highly recommend it to anyone and have, for childcare. (our daughter is 5 and son is 3) Henriette and her staff are extremely caring and loving to our 2 children. We have been very impressed with the progress our kids have made in the time they've been at LLELC. We appreciate that she sets clear expectations for the children and then reward good behavior. We've found that consequences (time out, etc) have been effective for our kids as well. They actually like going to school!
This is terrible place to send your child. I want all parents thinking about their baby to this school to know that it is a cold environment and the children are barely looked after. There's not enough workers to spend time with the kids. The workers are expected to clean over and over again instead of spending time with the children. This daycare as potential to be a good place if given a new owner and new staff.
I cannot stress to you enough that this is not the place to send your child. The owner is the coldest person around children I have ever met, my son was not in her class so we had limited interaction with her, but the little bit he had with her was awful, he would every time she would come in the class, she has sever OCD so she expects the children to be like little robots and does not allow them to ever just be kids. It is all the little signs that add up over time, she corrected my 2 year old son in front of me when he was hanging up his coat because he did not use the little hook inside his coat by the tag (he is 2, I was just happy he was hanging his coat up), he came home with his container of Ketchup full after she had been in his class for lunch, when I questioned her teacher (not the owner), she told me the owner withheld it from him because there is too much sugar in ketchup, he had to eat his chicken without it and cried the whole lunch. These are the types of things she does to the kids, please whatever you do, don't take your kids there, it is horrible. The only reason we stayed was because her normal teacher was awesome, when she quit, we gave our notice.
not a good place for kids at all. do not send you precious one there. Too many settings and rules, and teachers are yelling at kids when they are not following their rules or settings. The snacks are only crackers every day.
My daughter went to this school for about a year. I agree with everything that the previous reviwer said. The toddler class is great but the Pre-K class is not. The director is phony. This is a very cold environment for children. My daughter started acting out at home every day and did not want to go to school at all. Now she is thriving at her new school, she is back to her old loving self and I feel so bad that I made her go there at all. Horrible.
Our family loves Just 4 Kids Early Center! Our daughter has attended for 3 years. We tried other schools and Just 4 Kids is the best fit for us. Happy, bright, clean and secure atmosphere. Our daughter has bloomed academically, socially and creatively. She loves going to school every day and seeing her friends and teachers. Never, never had any issues and never seen any issues. Our daughter would tell us - believe me! Nothing but high marks from us!
Started my daughter in this daycare the first month they opened in 2007. My son is also going there now. Very clean, bright, engaging atmosphere. The kids are given great structure and it shows in my child's behavior. They are also given plenty of independent times with tons of activities to choose from. Brings home tons of art work, gets plenty time out in the fresh air too. I'm very confident dropping my children off at J4K everyday! If there was ever a problem with this daycare, my daughter would for sure tell me.
