My child attended Carson Valley and unfortunately we were quite disapointed. There were some caring staff however overall it was a GLORIFIED Daycare. There did not seem to be a basic understanding of classroom management, positive reinforcement, verbal praise, transitional cues, prompting etc. Modeling positive behavior and checking in during free play was rarely apparent. The classrooms were poorly supplied and quite noisy and unorganized. Overall- there was a lack of basic early education techniques and it did not feel like a positive environment. After visiting many of the local schools it was drastically apparent how far behind Carson Valley is in providing care for preschool age children.
Our son loves Carson. They have all the programs you'd expect. Inside scoop: They have a great parent association which puts on several events like the fall faire, holiday shopping event, desserts with daddy, pajama night, beginning and end-of-year cookouts at the school, etc. Carson also had a day care program which fits seamlessly with the nursery school 7:30-5, great for working professionals.
