What Our Parents Say:

“The art curriculum is incredible! Both of my kids have attended for a week so far and I have nothing but good things to say. After one day there, my older one, who normally thinks that arts and crafts are boring, made me go to Michael’s to pick up supplies, so he can paint and make clay art. He spent hours on this, which is so unusual for him. The art teacher is very inspiring!

The school also provides hot lunches, which is a huge huge plus in my book, as I don’t have to pack it! Both of my kids have multiple food restrictions due to allergies that the school was able to accommodate. Any school or camp that does that is worth its weight in gold in my opinion – families with allergies will know what I mean!!” –Rima

“We were coming from a bad daycare situation so I was extra critical when touring new schools. From the initial meeting to now being there for a few months the teachers, director and owner are so friendly, creative and most importantly so kind and loving with the children. I cannot explain what a great feeling it is to leave my sons at a place where I don’t have to worry about if they are being taken care of. They also offer hot lunches everyday which is a big help! The school is very clean and my sons are learning a lot each day. It is a great school and I’m very happy we found it.” -Kelly
