The first review posted March 25, 2014, is not truthful and the information is incorrect. Get your facts correct before posting something against a small nonprofit school.

This school is extremely unhealthy. My child attended for 2 weeks. When the director asked my husband who is a contractor to check something electrical in the basement he found horrible conditions. There was about an inch of water all over the basement floor, black mold, and rat poisoning on the steps leading up to the school. When he informed them of this, the director stated "Its not below any of the classrooms so its ok." We immediately pulled our daughter from the school. There are also various pets that are kept there as well.

My granddaughter attends this school and loves it! She started in their 2 yr old program and has learned so much! They have an excellent staff, great classrooms and an extremely large outdoor play area. Could not ask for a better school!

This is an excellent school. My son was registered for the local public school kindergarden and while inquiring about after school care I discovered that the folks from Relay Children's Center handled the before and after care program for the local public school. I met with the director and toured the school and knew this is where I wanted by child to be. He is now in 2nd grade and we love it. The environment is the best.

Relay provides a loving atmosphere and with small class sizes the children get lots of indvidual attention. My daughter has attended since preschool, she has changed from a shy child who hid behind me when ever someone got near. To someone who looks forward to meeting new people & sharing new adventures. She truly loves her school & her teachers. She refers to her assistant teacher as the 'keeper of all knowledge.' They also have an exciting approach to teaching. Last year they learned about turkeys, literaly, they brought one into the school so the kids could see for themselves. You never know who will be visiting the school, farm animals, pets, parents & grandparents who are encouraged to come and share a craft idea or a favorite book. In addition to 'pets' in each room that the children learn to take care of. My biggest blessing was finding 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.

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.
