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.

I am not happy at all with the services that this school has provided. Earlier this year they lost track of my child and did not notify me that my child was not in the building, nor will they give the student handbook out. I gave my two week notice and they will not give my overpayment back, theywant me to pay for 3 weeks, they have called harrassing me and have given my personal information out to strangers who have called me even at my place of work (some with threats). They get no stars in my book, but that wasn't an option on this site.

My son has attended FBCDCC since the age of 3 and he loves it. The teachers are hands-on and make the parents and student comfortable. My son has enjoyed his last three years there. I highly recommend this school.

This is a great school. The students seem to know all the teachers. My daughter is in the k-4 class and she is already starting to write in cursive, writing her name, and can count to 50. I would recommend this school to any parent who wants the best for their child.

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.
