Such a nice school, Huge secure Campus with lots of grass and Shady trees! I'm thrilled that I brought my daughter here, We started out slowly with just a couple days a week in Ms. Geeta's class because I thought full time might be to much for her but soon she started asking if everyday was a school day (Even weekends). So we moved her to 5 days a week and havn't looked back since. was so excited when Summer came and she got to sign up for swim lessons with Ms. Carly and Ms. Sascha. The Kindercare curriculum is top notch and the Teachers are all amazing, most of them have been with the center for many years and become a extended part of our family.

My daughter has attended this school for two years - starting when she was 2 in room 1 and she just turned 4 in room 7. I started as a working parent and now am a stay at home mom - I have been able to spend alot more time observing the school and can recommend this facility to working parents that are looking for a loving enviroment (for 2 year olds) and a educational and nurturing environment (thru 4 years old). The new Director Ms. Anna is very caring and truly loves kids and Ms. Martha is a rock at the school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
