My daughter is smart beyond her years. The way she talks and thinks, you'd think she's already in her early teens. The fact that she's only 3 years old, yet she can communicate well with older people, makes her standout than most kids her age. Friends and relatives ask me what training I gave my daughter, for her to be smart as she is. I keep telling people that most of the credit goes to her teachers at Creme. They have the best standards in child education and have a proactive approach in learning. It s small wonder my daughter progressed fast because she learned from the best.

Back in the old days, schools were not as dynamic as Creme de la Creme. It would have been cool if my old school had the same facilities as Creme has. It is an ideal school for kids because it has structured learning styles which kids can easily adapt. My son enjoys the company of other kids his age in school. Not only that, he keeps telling me he likes Creme because they have lots of fun activities. Such activities encourage kids to like school and learning is perceived as fun and not as an obligation.

Young kids are incapable of lying. When my son told me how much he enjoys being at Creme way better than he had in another preschool he went to before, I believe him. I let my son be the judge in this situation, whereas from my point of view, both schools are equally good. However, based on my son s perceptions, Creme outshines the other school. Young as he is, my son tells me, school is so much fun at Creme. When asked why, he said teachers are nice and more stuff to play with in school. In less than 3 months, I can see that my son has developed a liking for the concept of going to school. Prior to Creme, he seemed to dread going to school. It seemed like he was being punish that s why he is sent to school in order to behave. Personally, I don t like to force my kid to go to school, because that would create in him a strong dislike in it which he would carry till his adult years. I m glad all that has changed, ever since I transferred him to Creme.

We have very high expectations and Creme always delivers. I am beyond thrilled with the care and attention the staff and the teachers have for the schoolchildren. My child gets the best education at Creme. The staff seems to know my son well. It's like everybody in school calls him by his first name. The facility is always clean and they serve healthy and nutritious food. I only have wonderful words for Creme - cause that's what they are, really wonderful.

Sending my son to Creme de la Creme was not a hard decision to make, but of course, I have to be doubly sure I am going to be fully satisfied with my choice. Prior to making the final decision, I discussed this with my wife, and she totally agreed with my choice. Before I decided, I gathered several brochures among all the preschools around, then, I looked them up online. I took the time to read the reviews and asked around, before I confirmed to myself that indeed, Creme de la Creme, is the best school for my son. They have a strong structured learning environment which provides a curriculum for kids to learn things easily, and at the same time enjoy school life without creating an atmosphere of intimidation and dislike for schooling. This helps kids regard school as a friend, not a as venue where they feel they are forced to learn.

All parents want the best for their kids. I believe a lot of parents would agree with me if I say that it all starts with the education given to the children. We have to choose the right school to ensure our children s success. Then a friend of mine told me all about Creme de la Creme. She told me that she was so happy with how the school taught her child, and that every penny spent was worth it. That was how I got convinced to send my own daughter into Creme de la Creme. Before I sent her to school, my daughter was quite aloof. She barely talked to people and would tend to hide behind my legs when I introduce her to someone new. After a few months at Creme, I saw the changes in my daughter. Not only did she become more outspoken, she started socializing with other children as well. I love seeing my daughter smile. I am happy I sent her to Creme. Creme de la Creme is the real deal.

Our son has been in Creme de la Creme for two years now. We first put him up in day care when he was only 10 months old. At first, I was a little scared. There might be some things that could go out of control when I m not around. I am very strict when it comes to my child s diaper changes and meal times. However, knowing that I do not have much liberty with time, I was forced to entrust him to a day care facility. I knew then that Creme de la Creme was a little pricey. Then again, I thought, why would I go cheap on my own son? After all,when something is of good quality, it is natural that it comes with a price a little higher than the rest. I have no regrets though.They not only watched over him and prepared him for schooling, they also never lacked in personal attention. That for me is the most important thing. After all, we parents put our kids in school and day care so that they can learn and be supervised by adults. I have never been disappointed in Creme. In fact, I commend them.

The first impression I had of the school was that it's so colorful inside. Truly, the very walls were stimulating to the eyes and the mind. My daughter's reaction was similar. She stared wide eyed at everything we passed, apparently awestruck. As of now she's been there for 6 months. She truly enjoys being there. I also appreciate the fact that the teachers give me frequent updates regarding her stay there and how she does. The staff are so friendly, I really feel welcome when I'm there.

With Creme we are assured that our child is really given the necessary education and care that he needs. We can go to work everyday without any worries. We are very glad knowng that what we are working hard for is given back to us even more than its worth. We can really see the positive results of the time our child has spent at Creme everytime we pick him up from school. Thanks Creme, you truly are a great help to us! Creme de la Creme

At first I wasn't too impressed with Creme de la Creme. It was recommended to me by my boss's younger brother whose son also goes to Creme de la Creme. So I went along with it. Didn't want to "upset" my boss and his brother. (I need the promotion!!) My first impression was it's an expensive school with bratty kids all over. I told my wife, we would enroll our daughter for one term, and that's it. A year and a half has passed, but my daughter is still with Creme. I am truly happy we did not remove her from this school. We would have committed the biggest mistake of our married life. Creme has lived up to our expectations and more. My daughter turned out be a well-rounded kid and excels in everything she does. We are more than satisfied at Creme.

My wife is a college professor so naturally, she has high standards in choosing a school for our 3-year old daughter. It took us months of researching, asking people around, personally visiting schools, until we mutually agreed on Creme de la Creme. We could have enrolled our daughter at the age of 2 but we couldn't find the "perfect" school for her. But, it was worth the wait. Creme is perfect in a child's developmental years. As we are both working parents, we leave it up to the school to hone our child's skills. We are never disappointed. Creme has absolutely lived up to our expectations. More than ever, our daughter is alert, active, adjusts well in a given situation, and thinks beyond her age. The school covers most of the important basics for our daughter to learn and teachers are very competent at what they do. And more importantly, we saw how a great improvement in our daughter's developmental years. Creme is truly a fantastic school.

My daughter likes to tell me about her day, the projects she's been doing and how much fun she has with her friends. The class is also very lively and the children are energetic. I admire how the teachers maintain order while lessons progress. They teach my daughter about cleanliness, good manners and values as well as general education such as Spelling and Reading. She has improved since the first year I enrolled her and thrives in this great environment.

Finally, I found the perfect school for my daughter. She's been to several schools and daycare centers, but there seemed to be something lacking with those schools always. As a parent, I didn't feel at ease with any of those schools. It's as if I don't want to leave my daughter in school. But at Creme de la Creme, I can see the glow in my daughter's smile. She loves it tremendously at Creme. Since moving to Creme, my husband and I noticed a big improvement in her -- she has learned a lot of different things. She's very active. She loves her school. It is getting harder to take her out of the school every time I pick her up.

I love this school!! My daughter began here when she was 3 and is in her second year. The teachers and staff are all very friendly and clearly care for my child. All of the adults in the building know my daughter by name! The directors are fabulous and are easily accessible. I love how they provide a daily report. I am a school teacher myself and am amazed that my 4 year old is learning things that we are still trying to teach 1st and 2nd graders where I work. We plan on keeping her at Creme for Kindergarten. This is a great school and I highly recommend it!
