My experience with Ivy League Academy has been since day 4 of the first day the center opened. I am sad to say that my child has now advanced to the 6th grade and can no longer attend the center. Leaving was a difficult thing for my child and my husband and I. The new director and assistant director have made such amazing improvements within the center and the teachers are the best of the best. The curriculum this center uses is absolutely great. My child has excelled in elementary school thanks to Ivy League and the dedication they give to the children. My opinion counts at this school and is always taken into consideration. I read the comment left by a very discruntled parent on this page and truly found it shocking. Most individuals that take the time to write only negative comments are usually those that lead a negative life and look for all the negative things in life. This center and the staff have never demonstrated anything but professionalism and compassion during the 4 years I have attended. I was aware of the annual fees and all other policies when I enrolled because I actually read my parent handguide and the documents sent home with my child. I guess if you don't take the time to read then yes you may have a shock one day when given an annual fee of $100. As for the comment about playing all day, well if you take the time to understand the curriculum used and the best practices for early childhood development, you would soon see that children learn best through play and interaction with their peers. It is the above negative parent that is uneducated in the process of learning in the early childhood world. I think it's all about communication and working together as a team to solve issues or concerns. That has always been my motto at my job with my own staff. I have used that same approachI when I am concerned or confused at Ivy League. I always get great information from the director and always feel better aware when I leave. One thing I do know is my child was in excellent hands while I was away and I feel that I couldn't have chosen a better place to care and educate my son the past four years. Thank you Ivy League in Oakleaf for a job well done. I will reccommend this child care center to everyone. You must go tour and see for yourself.

The reason I put SuzieQ in this daycare, is because the last daycare she was in kept sending her home with diaper rashes we would get cleared up over the weekend, just to have them come back again. Within 3 days at Kimbari, the rash was gone, AND NEVER CAME BAACK. They have not always been convenient. They are very strict, and they believe in policy. They believe in consequences. I think most people have become used to a less rigorous world, and look at our world now. But think about it... The strict policies are for everything, which means that their high standards regarding the teachers they hire and the behavior of the staff towards your children are equally strict. I would much rather have a daycare where they don't pretend one thing in front of me, kissing my behind, and then behave poorly, lazily, or are mean to my child. Rules are rules, and I for one am happy that my child learns that... along with me sometimes. :) The care my daughter, now 23 months old, has received at Kimbari is second to none. That is the goal of a good daycare. She has been potty trained for the last two months. In that time she has had only 3 accidents. She wakes up dry every morning. I believe it is in large part due to their policy on going to the bathroom. They aren't lazy, they don't just get by. They give themselves 100% and expect us to respect them in turn. Could they be a little more warm and fuzzy? Sure, but only with the parents. My daughter loves going to school, and never cries. When I drop her off, she often runs into the arms of her teachers. Suzie Q knows 100's of words and is very advanced. I'd like to take credit, but being honest... they spend more time with her than I do. :( Every day I ask her how was school, and she always says "good mommy". And my follow up question is what did you do? And she rambles on for about two minutes. I catch about half of what she is trying to convey, but my point is she happily recounts her activities, and it is clear to see that she was very happy. For that reason and more, we love Kimbari.
It takes a village to raise a child. I understands it more than a parent looking for quality daycare. From my experience with the Bosman's Family Academy the caregivers to the administrators are wonderful and a excellent center to have your kids at. Everyone that is involved in this daycare's operation helps shape my child's experience. It's no surprise that finding a good daycare was my prime concern; for my family, it's a safe, affordable option that allows my kids to socialize and learn in a loving environment structured around their needs. I love this daycare and if any parent read their contract they will know you are not bound by contract, all they are really asking is if you decide to leave the daycare you put in a 2weeks notice just like if you was living a aparment or house where you pay rent you have to give a 30 days notice as well. I see the bad reviews only come from parents who dont care about their children safety or not reading their contract accurately. I feel you get what you pay for, so if you are willing to pay for a cheap daycare you are going to get cheap services and that is when you will run into problems and have concerns about your childs safety and health; your children getting sick, not getting the care that they need, not getting the learning experience that provides them to excel in regular school, and specially with all this abuse going on in all these D graded daycares who dont care about your child. To me regardless the Bosman's Family Academy are one of the best and clean daycares in Arlington and safe as well. The money I pay I have no problem with because when I drop my children off I know my children are in good hands and not to mention they have passed every DCF inspection over 90% but that is just me being a concered parent.
