  • I believe that this rating regarding the parent looking to enroll her child in the school on Nov. 1 is mistaken for another school. I am the school director and we do not ask for a deposit for being on the waiting list. Parents are welcome to come in and tour our school and review our school policies before enrolling. Once you enroll then you make appropriate payments and receive a receipt.

  • My 4-year old is thriving there! Teachers are excellent; the staff is caring and so helpful. Many programs offered, from art to dance to golf to language and more. Worth every penny!!

  • I can't rate the school's curriculum or teachers since my child didn't attend the school. Thou I am very disappointed at their management. Originally I approached the school in the beginning of Oct. and tried to get my daughter in Nov 1st. The owner said most likely they will have an opening and will get back with me soon. She also asked for a non refundable deposit of $140 for us to get on the waiting list. I told her that she need to call me as soon as she finds out, since I wanted to give at least two weeks notice to my daughter's current daycare. Couple weeks past, I received no call or email from them. So I went in personally today and ask about the status. The owner said they do have space for Nov, I was sort of mad, it seems to me that they didn't even consider us on the waiting list and just wanted to enroll my daughter to get more business, which I can understand. But it's almost end of the month, they should of known if space is available or not for Nov. Later that day I went back and told the owner that I decided not to send my daughter there, since I have found a better school which better fits my daughter's needs. She told me that I won't be able to get the deposit back since I signed the agreement. Yes, I did sign the paper, but that's assuming we were on the waiting list and if we send our daughter there. The school didn't even do a single thing and wants take my money??? If they would of just called and let me know the status, I would of not ask for the money back. After some argument, she decided to give the money back, she said she will mail me the check. So I will wait and see if I get it or not.

    How could a daycare/preschool owner have this type of moral?? I feel very lucky that my daughter not is going to this school.

  • i enjoy sending my daughter to this school, first of all,is because the facility is clean. i can just feel it as i walk into the facility. the teachers are always nice and friendly... i especially like the school because the students are very bright and nice. my daughter had hard time liking the school but she enjoys going there. and my daughter is only three but she already reads three letter words...

    so i recommand the moms who have hard time looking for school to try this one cause i'm really enjoying it.
