My child attended this school during the 2013 summer program, and I am pleasantly surprised by how much was taught and learned. Aside from learning alphabet and number recognition, etc., the children were taught to respect themselves and one another, to listen to the lessons, and self worth through participation in various programs. I was apprehensive about my young child riding the bus and attending field trips away from the center, but there were no incidents whatsoever. Order can be found in all areas of the activities put on by the school, in fact some of the teachers are retired school teachers who have a keen knowledge of teaching and technique. While the director can come off as a bit stoic, she, the teachers, and staff that I have interacted with seem to have a genuine love of children and of learning. The simple fact is that the front office is about business and financial matters while the teachers take care of the nurture. There is a clear business and personal side to this school, but I have had the unfortunate experience of dealing with other local programs with shady business practices and I appreciate receiving timely notices, bills, etc. so this doesn't bother me.
