All of my children have attended the school and loved it. They formed a trusting and caring relationship with their teachers and they still talk about them even though they are in elementary now. The facilities are clean and set up in wonderful centers and filled with toys and materials that every child would love to play with. The teachers and the director are friendly and caring and are available for my questions and concerns. So to sum it up: I LOVE IT!

All three of my children attended this school, they enjoyed their time with all the teachers and made lots of friends. They learned many news things and would come home everyday telling me what they learned at school that day. The teachers are awesome and they updated me on their progress on a to needed basis. I would recommened this school to everyone. My 3 kids graduated from serendipity and entered their school with no problem.

My son started this school at 12 weeks old and is now 4. I have been so happy with this school and the supportive, caring staff! They have been fantastic through all stages of his development! My baby girl goes now too and I am thrilled to experience each class and stage all over again:-)

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE Staff......Ridiculous! My Son was in and out of this school within a matter of two months after being bullied and misdiagnosed by a Director who is unqualified to make such diagnosis. The Teacher barely spoke English, the kids could not even understand her. The Children are allowed to bully each other without any reprimand, as the "teachers are only here to observe"...Un NO! You are there to TEACH.

My son attended Serendipity for 3 months before I pulled him out. I was outraged when I picked him up early one day and realized he'd been in the same diaper for over six hours. He often came home filthy even though I had plenty of changes of clothes for him. when I question one of the instructors as to why he hadn't been changed, they just told me that his teacher had been out ill and she didn't know. The play area was always dirty, there was mud everywhere and the kids played very close to the gate without supervision. he had a rash on his back from who knows what that stayed there long after I pulled him out. I would not recommend this school to anyone for any reason. (I should note this was serendipity in Monrovia)

My daughter started at Serendipity when she was 9 months old. I was of course nervous, but oh my god what a wonderful experiance!!!! My daughter has adapted and loves school! The love she gets from the teachers and the entire staff makes me leave every day with no worries. She is blossoming into this neat little person which no doubt is partially a result from her daytime environment. It's expensive but it is soooo true that you get what you pay for! True, the campus needs a little work but it's what's on the inside that counts.

My child attended this school for a brief period of time. I had my doubts concerning this school from the outset. The school appeared unkempt and in poor condition. There was mud everywhere and the children playing on the playground appeared to be running around unsupervised. The director was friendly and reassuring, so I changed my mind and enrolled my child. A few weeks into his enrollment. I went to pick up my son who had a gash on his scalp. The supervisor, not the actual teacher handed me a scrawled note and noted it was an accident. Looking at the area there a large amount of swelling in the area. The school did not bother to call me on my cellphone to make the determination whether or not send my son to the emergency room or have at least have the wound looked at by a physician. I could go on. But

Both my girls (16 mo and 4yo) are at Serendipity and it's just been a spectacular experience. I was actually did a lot of interviewing before deciding to send my kids to Serendipity. I really have a great admiration for the teachers there and they truly love what they are doing and love the kids. They make the children feel special and are a hands on teaching program. They focus on learning by doing, so many a time they come home with paint under their fingernails and flubber all over them - but I know that they are learning and having fun. The teachers and director are always there to help and support us. Serendipity also provides outside vendors to come and enhance the child's experience - My 4 year old is in their weekly dance class and loves it. Thanks Serendipity for everything!

Absolutely great school, very professional personal; both of my girls are in the school, the teachers are wonderful, they always find time to talk to me, I've got lots of tips on what to do in the specific situaltions. Both of my girls are happy at the Serendipity (2year old and 7 month old), I love seing them smile all the time. The snacks and lunches at school are very good and nutritious. Daytime naps, they encourage, are also very helpful to my kids. The school provides lots of fun and lots of different activities for both kids and their parents as well.

The children at my daughter's school (Monrovia site) are always so happy! I've been surprised at how fast she is learning, and am really glad that we found this school. The teachers are experienced, educated, caring, and seem happy to greet us in the mornings. My child's needs have always been met or exceeded at Serendipity Monrovia. First rate!

My son has been in Serendipity since he was 2 years old. He's now 5. This charming school has a great staff who really know and love the kids. They work with each childs strengths and have an open curriculum that fosters exploration and discovery.
