Mr. and Mrs, McKanstry's school is the best kept secret in Baton Rouge. Our son has attened this school for a little over a year now. It feels so good to know that while we are at work our son is being cared for by the wonderful christian teachers. He is now in kinder four class and loves to go to school. He is able to read beginner books, and wirte his name, alphabets, and numbers. He is learning to speak german, french, and spanish. He also takes piano lessons there. We first thought that maybe this was a little to much for him, but he is soaking it all up like a sponge. He performed in his first tap dance recital last spring there and dances around at home constantly. The McKanstry's are truly a blessing to our family. We plan on allowing our son to enroll into the McKanstry Prep. School for Kindergarten next school year.
When I looked into this daycare I came across some negative reviews from 2009. I was hesitant about it and the area, but I took the risk to have him near my downtown office. And boy am I glad I did. I don't know what was going on back in 2009 but it is not going on now. The large class sizes for infants scared me, but that fear was gone as soon as I saw the level of care he received. The staff is ample and caring. I am SO happy with this daycare. This is my 3rd child and this is the most I have been satisfied with a daycare thus far. The staff are extremely friendly, loving to the kids, and considerate of parents. My son is 10 months old and loves getting there in the mornings. He loves the ladies that take care of him, as do I. This daycare is a very safe and happy place for your children.
I'm a 38 year "young" mother of two sons ages fourteen and two. It was a very hard decision to put my son in day care. My husband and I went to atleast 11 centers. When we walked in to A Lil One's and observed all the staff smiling and interacting with the kids in the middle of the day it was very impressive to us. The staff at A Lil Ones are very intouch with the growth and development of children. My son jumps up every morning rushing to put on his clothes and go to school, this even includes the weekends. His verbal communication has improved 100% as well as his interaction with peers his own age. I go to work everday with great comfort in knowing that my son is having a great time learning and developing at A Lil One's Learning Center. Thanks for your exceptional services!
