  • The poor reviews about this school are absolutely correct! I can vouch from experience and regret ever using this "school". Do NOT send your children here! None of the “teachers” are certified and anyone in a position of power is related. They are given carte blanche to do or say whatever they want. They put on a lovely show for parents about how the “children come first”. After the parents leave they just let children sit and cry, and actually yell at staffers who try to comfort the children! The school “rules” state that children should “never be talked down to”, but this is routinely ignored by bitter and mean sarcastic “teachers” who demean the children and mock them. They would routinely make up new “rules” on the spot that didn’t exist before, and spend more time spying on each other and engaging in gossip than watching their own classrooms. They break their own “rules” about how males are not to be with the children when they go to the bathroom. I know what my children experienced and they are NOT liars. Mary Sears is terrible!

  • My children are extremely happy here and I could not be happier with the staff and the education they are receiving. Everyone is so involved and the school is bright open and clean. The staff and directors are so helpful and kind. It puts me at ease while I am at work knowing that my children are safe.

  • Mary Sears proves to be a wonderful environment for my daughter. Lots of activities and lots of learning. All the teachers and aids seem very involved and my daughter has learned a lot. Manners are also a big part of their ciriculum. She started at 7 months old and is going on 4 yrs old.
