I am writing as a former student of Young Scholars Academy. I can say with complete confidence that this center shaped my character and gave me knowledge later in my school years. I started in the preschool program at Young Scholars at the age of 4 and attended for years until is was too old (to my dismay). In those years I learned sign language, Spanish, math and science, you want it they teach it! What I loved and remember vividly was my teachers, friends and the Summer Camp they offered. I LOVED IT! If you want to have your child experience culture and view the world around them I recommend this program . During the summer camp we went on hikes, museums, summer swim lessons, parks, did pottery, it was absolutely amazing! One time our teacher gave us ostrich when we were doing our around the world curriculum! Yuck, but it was still fun and memorable! I will never forget my summer camp years and preschool years at Young Scholars! Going to visit YSA after all these years I am completely impressed by the classiness of the center as well as the educated curriculum that is incorporated every day. When I have children I will by no doubt in my mind send my child here in hopes that they will grow into the person we all wish to be! I would give more stars if I could!

When looking for a preschool program there were many factors that I considered. Curriculum and costs were the obvious factors but I also was interested in the passion of the teachers, organization of the director, and the caring family environment of the program. I found all that and more at Calvary Preschool. The director Kimberly Case knew all the kids names and greeted them every morning. The teachers not only were interested in my kids but the weekly emails kept me informed as to what they were creating and learning in the classroom. Other factors that led me to choose Calvary was each class attended weekly gym time and monthly chapel time. Calvary quickly became a second home to my 2 and 4 year old.. Class sizes are intimate as my 2 year olds class was 10 kids with 2 teacher and my 4 year olds class was 14 with 2 teachers. The special traditions like a Spaghetti Dinner for Dads and the Mother’s Tea are just a few examples of Calvary creating special family memories. As someone with a Masters in Early Childhood Education, I was picky of the right preschool for my family and Calvary surpasses all expectations. I will forever sing their praises.
As a past employee of this center, (left after I received my teaching certificate) I can honestly tell you this center is a warm and inviting environment. The majority of the employees have worked there 5 years plus, demonstrating it is a great place to work. Additionally, the majority of kids have been there since babies, proving parents love the teachers and service. Never did we ever drive a van when students were not properly buckled and if the owner discovered this were to be true he would have corrected the behavior immediately. Buckling so many times, you get to be experts on the activity and learn to go faster so the kids are not sitting in a hot van!! I loved working there myself, and before having children, I continued to come back as a summer employee. I would suggest to this individual who called the center to ask to speak directly to the owner, and I am most confident he would have been more than happy to have a proper discussion on the matter. Now working on my administrator certification, I have learned how important it is to give administrators proper time to solve problems.
