This school is mediocre at best and only has enrollment for lack of a better choice in the neighborhood. Huge turn around of teachers, teacher to child ratio is very poor, poor leadership. My child was yelled at and ridiculed for ridiculous reasons such as eating too slow. He was never even on yellow! The VPK teachers are horrible! Save your money and put your child in a public school for VPK. The last straw was when my child was taken out of school on a fieldtrip without my permission!! That's right I hadn't signed a permission slip and they took him anyway. The teachers and director are completely lost and the director just makes excuses for her teachers because in her words" she doesn't have much of a hiring choice out there". She let's them get away with anything because she doesn't want to lose more teachers! Steer away from this school specially the VPK program. Being a teacher myself for 13 years I would NOT recommend this school to anyone.

Early Years Academy is a great school. I highly recommend it. They are a nurturing and clean facility with many activities for little ones. We love this school!

one of the best schools a child can attend, My preschooler is writing and my kindergartener is writing and reading at a 2nd grade level. The teachers in specific Ms. Melissa are so dedicated and have a natural way to get the kids wanting to learn more.

This is a very good pre-school. The VPK is top notch, and your child is reading at age 4 without a problem. They challenge the children, and have very nice activities each month.They have an open door policy and a friendly staff, which don't find in many places. The director is amazing with the children, and runs a tight ship. I wish I would have sent my two older kids to this school.

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.

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.
