I have been happy with this place for the most part. My child has learned so much since coming here. I would even give the learning experience an A+. It is a very clean environment as well. The only thing that I'm not as happy with is that most of the time when I walk in I have to be the first one to say hello to a teacher or staff and sometimes I don't even get looked at when I am even right in front of someone signing in. It's just a little un-professional to me. Of course not every staff member does this and I have recieved very nice greetings before. I feel like greeting every parent with a smile and a simple hello would be very appropriate. Another thing that bothers me a little is sometimes when I pick up my youngest child i find her walking around the class room with snot just running down her face and no one wipes it off or dried food on her shirt. I know kids will be kids and they are very messy but parents wipe their kids noses and clean them up a little bit when they get messy so I would just expect the daycare to do the same thing. Other than that, CVEC is a very nice place and seem to have a great staff. If this was based on strickly the overall learning experience I would have given them 5 stars.
My first child started VPK in this school almost two years ago and he was a bit behind at the beginning but as time passed it seemed everyday he would surprise me with new things he learned. They did a complete turn around with him. I started our youngest here when he turned 1 and he is a little advanced for his age now at 2 and I owe a lot of that to this school and the amazing teachers. My oldest is in kindergarten now but goes to before and after school care at CVEC and he loves it. They take and pick him up from school which is very convenient for my husband and I with our work schedules. Both of my boys love attending this school and all four of us have great relationships with all the staff.
I've been drinking Velda 2% milk for about 19 years and found it to be consistently of the highest quality and taste. Their Eggnog available during the holidays has no equal. You just won't find a better product. I only have one concern: I stopped finding Velda in Walgreens and 7 Eleven where I usually find it. I say bring it back, and bring it back NOW! -Joe
