If you have been visiting many daycare centers and still have not found the one for your child, you should take a tour of Children’s World South. You will see something different. It is not the biggest school or the most technologically advanced daycare of them all and no, your child won’t go home with homework every night in the hope of him or her being a mastermind at the tender age of two. Because none of this is what small children need, but unfortunately that is what a lot of daycares/preschools claim to offer, here in the US.
Instead, Children’s World South is a truly beautiful environment where children from all around the world learn to play together, talk, socialize, sing, invent, listen, build, run around and be happy, ensuring they are growing mentally, intellectually and physically and are acquiring essential social skills. The center has an idyllic playground/garden with fruit trees, plants, herbs, metal and wooden structures for play, a stage area and butterflies flying around. It is the perfect spot for children to let out all that energy and to discover and understand nature.
The teachers are caring, fun, understanding and all of them are just great with children. I have never heard a raised voice in that school. They focus on acknowledging positive behavior in a child, instead of focusing on the negative, which is still what a lot of schools have a tendency to do. The center’s Director, Mrs Helen, is involved with all the children, with the community, with school boards. It is someone who has a true passion for education, and for raising standards.
There is a real sense of nurture, care, love and dedication in that school, not only that, but you can feel and see that children are genuinely happy there.
Children's World South is an amazing school. All of my kids have come to this school and I can't say enough about them. When it was time for my oldest daughter, who's now 20yrs old, to go to preschool my mother told me about this place. They did such a great job that when it was time for my second daughter, who's now 11yrs old, to go to preschool CWS was the only place in my mind. A few years later my niece came here. My son is currently at this school and loves the food, his teacher and his friends. They truly care about the parents and the children. It's amazing to see how much the kids learn through the year at this school.
Childrens world south was the best choice i ever made. Both of my kids went there. They always had healthy snacks and teach the children wonderful things, like gardening and sharing etc. My son Carlo only went for before and after care but miss helen taught him to come out of his shell and had him tutoring the smaller kids and he loved it. My daughter Steviemarie was lucky enough to go there for school also and miss anna pottie trained her for me and miss helen and miss neida taught her to read so well that she skipped 1st grade! I hated leaving them when we moved back to Ny. They were and always will be a second family to us- julie and dave deluca
Children s World South is truly a hidden gem!!! Tucked away in a small Fort Lauderdale neighborhood, this school deserves all the accolades it receives. Everything from the cleanliness of the classrooms to the nutritious meals served at breakfast and lunch, from the colorful walls of artwork to the growing outdoor garden of fresh fruits and vegetables, CWS has always been very dear to my heart as well as my boys'. The teachers are very well trained and educated and the director has an overflowing heart. My firstborn started attending when he was 1, shortly thereafter my twins attended. I never looked back. They learned and flourished since day one, from the toddler room all the way to VPK. The staff cares, they communicate with the parent on a daily basis about what the children learn and what needs to be addressed. They care about the children, about the parents, about the children s education and about the school. The staff has pride in what they do. The children see it, live it and love it.
5 Stars is not enough to rate this amazing preschool education center. Children's world South has it all.I wanted my child to be cared for in a loving sincere way but I also wanted a center that focused on education not just playing. CWS is the best of every world. They provide excellent nurturing attention, great education, and are very reasonably priced. The Director Ms. Helen does more than just run things, she gets hands on and gets to know each and every child and makes sure their individual needs and wants are met. Ms. Tina, There arent enough words to describe how amazingly special she is. The attention and care she provides each child is so sincere. She would do anything and everything to help a child if she can.I promise that not a day passed that my son wasnt happy there and n the end that's what matters most. There will always be a special place in my heart for Ms. Helen and Ms.Tina. Every teacher there on the whole is truly great.I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to attend CWS. I plan on always being part of the CWS family becuase that's exactly how they make you feel. Trust that you won't find any center as wonderful as CWS!
CWS is an amazing little school hidden away in fort lauderdale. My older daughter attending PreK here and currently my younger daughter. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing the staff is! It's like an extended family that cares for and teaches my children.
CWS is a wonderful caring and nurturing place for children. When we moved in to Fort Lauderdale, I was in search for a daycare for a while. From the moment I met the director, Ms. Helen and the staff, and I had a tour and observed the kids and teachers, I knew it was the right place for my 3 year old daughter who had never had even a single day without me ever since she was born. I was right! Children will turn to love like sunflowers turn to Sun. They need to feel it. In CWS the first thing you feel is LOVE and CARE. Ms. Helen is the best director ever. She has a big heart full of love and Ms. Helen and the staff are very professional and treat the kids like their own. I cannot thank enough for all the support they have given to my daughter and for all the things she has learned. She cannot stop talking about school. I also appreciate the support I was given as a parent when I had to deal with my daughter's separation anxiety during the first week she attended there. You know your child is loved and cared when she whispers I love school, I love my teacher just before she falls asleep. You know your child is at the best hands when she cannot wait for Monday to come to go to school.
My son has been at Children's World South for about 4 years for aftercare and camp. I WISH I had known about them when he was in Preschool. My son has ADHD and let me tell you that not all schools understand the challenges of a child with ADHD. At Children's World South each child is treated with the care and understanding that they need. They understand that each child is different and have different needs. I know my child can be difficult at times and it made me feel wonderful that they understood his condition and worked with him on his bad days. They never made him feel unwanted or unloved like some other places had. Mrs. Helen has to be by far the best director that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She is loving, kind and understanding. The staff/teachers are all wonderful and understanding also. It's like leaving you child with family. If you have a child and are looking for the perfect school this is the one.
My son, Oscar, who's now five has been attending the school for over three years now. I don't have enough words to express how grateful I am. Thank you Ms. Helen, thank you to every single teacher, every person that works with children's world south. Thank you for the loving and caring that you have provided not only to my son, but to all the kids around you guys . I know that your success will continue always. I am really glad that I have chosen you guys to provide not only daycare for my son, but also for thepre-K. Love you guys <3
My son started here when he was 1 and it quickly became like his second home. Everyone says their child is brilliant and amazing (which is true) but as my son started saying his ABC's and counting in English and Spanish from 1-10 before he was even a year and a half old, then shortly after his 2nd birthday he read ME a book...he may or may not be smarter than other children his age but he is definitely smarter than his mom! I am fortunate to be a part of Children's World South As a single mother with no family nearby I have been grateful to the director Ms. Helen and all of the teachers at CWS who have made it their mission to enrich the lives of the children who attend here. The days are spent in a Montessori style focusing on not only structure but fun as well incorporating a myriad of education in an ever changing environment focusing on each individual child's needs and their likes encouraging their uniqueness and abilities. I researched and visited many schools and could not be more satisfied knowing my son is receiving the best at Children's World South.
