My child went to the school for 3 years. Each year I saw a big improvement in reading writing and math. Love the small classes, it allows for lots of one on one time with the teacher. We highly recommend this school for children between the grades of kindergarten to 3rd. Many families are from other countries, gives the children an understanding of all the different cultures in our world. If you want a small class room, responsive teachers and personal time for your child I recommend this school.
the school gave lots of hope when we joined by my son ,he used to cry all the days when he goes to school..he hardly completed 3months and i had to change him .they were way too expensive for the things they teach..i doubt if the teachers were really qualified as they claim.
Our infant (from 3 to 8 months) was on the four day program at this school and had a great experience. The teachers are always kind and helpful. If it's raining, someone will run out to you with an umbrella. The hours were flexible and they really helped us start our kid on solid food. The classrooms are orderly and clean, and the kids seem engaged. We dropped in at some random times to check on our kid and all was the same. Our kid was always in a good mood when we picked him up. All in all, we really liked the school!
My son went to this school for 2 years while he was 3 years until he was 5. He loved going to school. He was doing great academically. We had to move out of Houston if not i would have continued his education there. Staff is very caring. I would definitely recommend this school to others.
I think this is an exceptional school. We did a lot of research before sending our daughter there. She has been there since the age of 4 months and is now 18 months old. She loves her teachers and has made friends and is learning a lot. We have recommended this schol to several other friends who have enrolled their children as well.
This is absolutely the worst daycare I could have ever picked. I had very high hopes, and have an infant, preschooler and elementary School age children. They are not truthful and I question their ability to effectively run this school with the leadership they have.
This is a wonderful school. My 3 year old has been here since she was 18 months old. She loves the practical life portion of her day, can now recite months and days of the week and count to 30 in Spanish. She loves her teachers and friends. Wonderful school! Before coming here, my daughter always had ear infections, strep etc, but keeping visitors out of the room has helped 100%. What a change! Granted, age may have something to do with it, but we have never been happier.
I toured eight daycares before I chose this one for my three month old son. They are the only one that did not let visitors into the rooms with the children, which should be a requirement! I don't want strangers to have contact with my child when I am not there, or to be tracking in dirt onto the carpet where my baby is crawling. Babies/children like routine and visitors just disrupt the routine of the class. All the classrooms have big windows you can look through to see your child any time during the day. The staff knows us by sight and is very responsive to all our requests. I know my son is happy there because he smiles at the teachers when I drop him off. I highly recommend them.
This is the worst daycare. Do not take your child to this daycare. My 4 month old started there, but seeing the conditions he was out of there in a month. The school requires that you leave your car seat. Why? Because your kid just sits in a carseat and that's it. They even feed him in a car seat. I had other kids diapers put on my kid. You aren't even allowed to see where they are keeping your baby. You hand him off at the lobby and aren't allowed where he is. It smells horribly. Do not take your child here.
Toured the school recently and was quite impressed by their organization, knowledge, cleanliness, and security. With it's proximity to downtown and some unsavory neighborhoods, security was a great plus with all exterior doors being locked from the inside. Everything was clean and well organized. All of the staff were knowledgeable. You did not get a sense of chaos or hear screaming children anywhere you went in the school. All of the children appeared well-behaved and disciplined. Seemed to offer many great extra-curricular activities.
This is a great school. With in the first week of being there my child was potty trained and I had been struggleing with it for 6 months. They have a good balance of education and play time. Also they offer many extracurricular activities.
