Lil Harvard - excellent teachers and an awesome education in a structured and loving environment. Lil Harvard came highly recommended by both past and present parents.

Lil Harvard was not our first choice because of the facility -- it was in a trailer house BUT the children were so INTELLIGENT, mannerable and disciplined! They provided us w/10 years of references and each parent said the same thing Lil Harvard truly LOVE THE CHILDREN and the children love the staff!! They ve since built a new school and continue teaching the children. No school is perfect and yes there are challenges with the Administration but it has never altered what they do best -- BUILDING CHILDREN THAT SHAPE OUR WORLD, STEP-BY-STEP. Parents be sure to ask the right questions when searching for schools. Also, my mother advised me to: show up without prior notice just to see what's really going on . Our children attend Lil Harvard and we still practice this principal. Give Lil Harvard a try.

I visited Lil Harvard to potentially move my 2yr. old daughter from an in-home day care to a pre-school. I was greeted with a not so happy presence and a very off-putting attitude. In our meeting, I got the impression that my visit was more of a burden than an opportunity. I was asked if my daughter was coming from an in-home day care that taught the children or one that just did nothing all day . A potential client should be welcomed with a warm greeting and a brief display of their abilities to work with a child. I was referred to this school by a co-worker and after my visit, the Director took it upon herself to tell my co-worker that my child was bouncing off the walls , wasn t listening , and acted like she had a spoon full of sugar . Discussing my child with others, in a negative way, is a major turn-off as well! I had been told that the Director is a very to the point individual and often comes across as rude to some parents, but I always allow my own opinions to form and not be made by the comments of others. Please feel free to make your own opinion of Lil Harvard, but I felt as though my experience needed to be noted.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
