  • My son started at the end of last summer and is doing very well. He loves his teachers and can't wait to tell me about his day as soon as I pick him up.

  • Great school. My son loves it there. The teachers really care about what's going on. Sickness happens to kids when they're in groups. Especially little ones. Disinfecting doesn't stop them from passing it to each other. They keep the place clean and send home kids when they're sick.
    The director is involved and the price is cheaper than all others in the area for what they give you. They've been there forever! My next one will definitely be going there.

  • My son is always coming home sick. He either has fevers or colds about 2-3 times a month. I belive the school is very good at teaching with there precise curriculum but if poor with keeping up with disinfecting the toys and so forth. I think the parents and teachers should closely watch and teach for covering there mouths for coughing and sneezing. My son has been covering his mouth since he was 2 years old. So it is possible and not only that but kids do follow there peers. I think if we work together we can prevents infections and colds. We would reduce the amount tremendously.

  • My son spent his first 2.5 years with his aunts and cousins, but he adjusted quickly to life at Papoose. After 2 months, he wants to go to Papoose everyday, not just schooldays!
    The Papoose staff are happy to be there and extend their caring attitude by treating the kids with respect. My son is happy at the beginning and end of his school days, and he has learned so much in just a few months.
    Keep up the good work, Papoose!

  • My daugter is a Student at Papoose. She loves it there the Kindergarten teacher Miss Carol is the best. It is has been such a relief to actually find teachers that enjoy working with children. Going to this school was the best thing we have done for our little girl. And the program is great they really work hard to teach our children.

  • The School is wonderful, My daughter CALYSTA has been attending papoose since december and she is 21 months, The transition from home day care to center was wonderful. The teachers are loving and spend indivdual care with Calysta.Director is great and is always available to answer questions. Believe me I looked at many different day cares before. Calysta has grown so much since she started day care. Her vocabulary has increased, she's learning abcs, colors and counting. Her social skills have also improved. Price is so affordable also.

  • I love Papoose! My son has learned so much since he has started there 2 years ago. His teacher has been there for 18+ years. She takes her time with not just him but the entire class. I only wish Papoose went up to 8th grade. My son will graduate May 08 and I am a little sad that he will be leaving.
