My husband called yesterday to get some information about their program and availability for our daughter. First time he called no one answered. So he tried back a little later assuming they were busy. A very rude woman answered the phone and when my husband asked for her name she refused to give it and just responded with "what do you want?" After some more interaction she finally gave her name as "Shiela" but my husband was not 100% convinced it was her real name after her rude and unhelpful attitude. She did give us pricing, but didn't give much more information about their program. My husband got fed up and told her "never mind...after this interaction there is no way we would take our daughter here!" And he hung up. She called him back and when he said hello, she hung up...it came across very childish like she had to have the last say. If this is how they treat possible new families, I would not want to see how they treat the children who go there. We want a loving, friendly and polite establishment to help us raise our child into a well rounded and compassionate member of society....we would have no faith that this daycare would be able to fill that spot. This place should be avoided, there are many other options in the area.
My son has been going to this school for almost 3 years, even after moving, I drive the extra time to take him there because it is such a great school. It is very hard to find a trusting and educational school, and this is the place! They really teach your children the essentials and knowledge in preparation for kindergarten. I love this school and always recommend it!
NBLC has been wonderful for my 2 (almost 3) year old. Before going he was behind in his speech and a few other things. I am amazed at how much he has learned. They not only teach them the normal things like ABC and 123 but he has also now says yes please, and no thank you ALL the time. They are teaching them manners and respect for others. The teachers have created a wonderful environment and you can see that by the way the children treat each other. The center is always very clean and well organized. This being my second child I know first hand how hard it is to find a good daycare/preschool. This is by far the best one I have tried and I tried alot with my first son. I am currently expecting my 3rd and he too will go here when he turns 2.
NBLC is a warm and caring preschool. My son has attended there for almost three years, and I could not be happier. The facility is clean and organized. The facilities, furniture, playground, and toys are well cared for. Bulletins are updated regularly for seasonal activities and walls are adorned with children's artwork. The children have structured learning and play activities to prepare them for grade school, and their teachers have high expectations for them. The teachers model kind and appropriate behaviors to create a safe, orderly, and fun environment. I feel that my son is well prepared to begin Kindergarten next year thanks to the staff of NBLC.
New Beginnings is a very nurturing environment. Although our daughter has been there less than a year, her socialization and language skills have risen substantially. She likes her teachers and new friends, and looks forward to going every day. I highly recommend this school. J. Sturr
