My daughter has went to this school since infancy. The new owners Jilma and Glenn Rudd have made it a great school! I was planning on changing schools but when they became the owners I decided to wait a few months... its been over a year and they keep improving the school and the environment!!!

Since the new owners took over you can see immediate improvement. First they took the time to meet each and every student and parent that walked through the door. Next they began renovating a school that was overtaken by dimly lit hallways and lack of decor to remind you that you were in fact in a school. The teachers seem to be more enthusiastic about what they love to do and there is some much needed structure in the classrooms. This school offers a worry free environment where your kids will learn, in large group, small group and one on one sessions. If you have any concerns you can feel comfort in speaking with the new owners knowing that the issue will be addressed. I do wish that lunch could be provided because it can be costly for three kids, however christian foundation infused with academics will supplement. I would recommend this school to any mom looking for a school that there kid would love to return to each day, a school where the teachers will work with you and your children. Every school has the ability to grow, there is no perfect school. But i can say with confidence that this school is going above and beyond to meet it's parents expectations.

This school is fantastic, my children are very happy. The staff and teachers are awesome, they care for each and every child. I feel as though we are family, the new owners are very nice and it is evident that this school is a life mission and not a just a job. Anytime that I have had a concern i feel welcome to express my feelings, not only that, but the listen and act. The facility is adorable and improvements are constantly being made. i am very blessed to have found this school/ daycare, now my children can receive the same message at school as they do at home; love others and yourself, be respectful and have morals that guide you in the everyday choices that you make.

The school is under new management and they have turned the school around! Rooms are clean, new toys, fresh paint on the walls and a joy to walk into! Check out the NEW Gingerbread Christian Academy!!

I would not recommend this daycare. My daughter went there and I saw certain teachers raising their voices at the children and when you bring this up to the owners, they do nothing. The classrooms are dirty. The owners and teachers do not care about the well being of the children.

My daughter is in the infant room. I would honestly say that if you want a day care to teach your child then this is not the one. I love the teachers. They all know my daughter even teachers in the preschool rooms. I don't like paying a 'tuition' for an infant who isn't learning anything, but I love the good quality care that she recieves at gingerbread. It's like sending her to grandma's. They play with her, feed her, spoil her, and send her back home to mommy and daddy.

I placed my child at this school after being at home from birth & he grew to like his teacher but she went out for vacation & one morning the substitute assumed the I was gone and plopped him down in a chair &never tried to comfort him at all. The kids faces are not kept clean. I have observed the teachers not paying attention to kids while on the playground,one day a child fell and the teacher had her back turned away from the children talking & was not even aware until the other teachers told her that I eas watching her. They take the children out side in extremely cold weather. The older kids are always sitting in the office and never in class. I feel that they are only concerned about childcare fees.

I would never put my child there due to untruths and children not being attended and when you tell about your concerns they take out on your child. My son was very upset after I picked him up from there and he would never be the same.

I am an educator who placed my 2 year old in this school. I have to say that I was very dissappointed with the lack of education given to my daughter and this uncleanliness of the school. I would never recommend this school to anyone. If you child is placed here, please take the time to shop around for another school that can offer your child to education that he/she deserves.

I have 2 children in Gingerbread. The staff is great, if you have any concerns they are always willing to talk with you about it. The teachers work hard on academics. I have been nothing less than impressed with them.

I have had a wonderful experience with the infant room. They take very good care of my daughter. They listen and are genuinely concerned about her well-being.

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.
