Both of my children attended this school and their summer camp program. As a matter of fact, both started in the toddler room which was a lovely building with 2 bathrooms and on the main floor. The building is clean and well kept, I myself saw new carpet installed at least 2 times while my children attended.

My children ate food there that they would not touch at home. The director and her assistant were always polite and professional. I am not sure if the other reviewers know the difference between a proper day school and a day care center. This is a professionally run day school where I only saw happy children and parents. They obviously do not know caring and quality when they see it. I have nothing but happy children that enjoyed their day there. They even wanted me to pick them up as late as possible so they could enjoy the day longer. I am a satisfied parent. Read less

The summer camps is great with swimming classes, nature walks, sports, and a full lunch cooked on the site with excellent choices. They are very flexible in terms of schedules and helpful (as long as you are making an effort to follow the policies). For the reviewer unhappy with the mishap in scheduling - the best way to make changes is to go there and speak in person...submit a letter. They are quite busy there. Read less

I enrolled my son in the day camp on recommendation from parents that had used it a few years ago. It seemed like a friendly place, until they received my contract. I wanted to switch the weeks my son would be there to weeks later in the summer. This seemed to take only a brief phone call. A week later,

After she gave me a hard time, I informed her the call was still logged in my phone and gave her the date, time and length of call. She then had me speak to the director, Sheila, who who proceeded to call me a liar .. Why wouldn't I have called and told them about the change? I am not interestedin aschool that calls parents liars, and you shouldn't be either. Read less
