Wonderful preschool and daycare! Both my children have been going there for two years as did my stepson who still loves to see his old teachers and give them his latest news. This is a very reliable daycare and preschool with two of the most caring teachers you could ask for, Kathy and Louise. I trust them taking care of my son and daughter, knowing that there will be plenty of hugs and smiles, with firm (but not strict) discipline. I always feel like they let me know exactly what has happened and that I can approach them with any concerns that I am having with either of the kids (e.g. as language and social skills). Kathy and Louise have approached their operation as more than a job… But a pride to educate all of their children, better than, other pre-schools would. And since its inception, the business has graduated dozens of children who went on to become “a-step-ahead” in beginning the Kindergarten grade, (without the high cost of standard pre-schools), and mostly, with the intimate “one-on-one” they’ve based their business ethics on. My testimony relies on my Step-son. When he entered Kindergarten, his teacher was impressed of his abilities, and his academic testing proved he was far ahead of the other students. He is now in Second grade, and his reading skills are at a third grade level. Another note, Lollipop Lane is diversified with its Children. I feel this is highly important to children, as they grow into a Global society. I HIGHLY recommend Lollipop Lane Daycare to anyone.
After an AWFUL experience with child care when we first arrived to the area we finally found Tiny Tots!! As soon I walked in and met Mrs. Maribel I knew this was the place for my children. (1 yr old and 4) I can tell she has love for all of the children in her care and she is actively involved with them. She treats my children as if they are her own! Mrs. Marilyn is my daughters teacher and it is so great to have my daughter walk into Tiny Tots (and around town) and run into her arms. It shows me how much she is loved there. My son had Mrs. Maggie for the longest time and when she switched rooms he was extremely sad because she is very loving and fun to be around. His new teacher Mrs.. MaryAnn has not been there long but she was brought in to teach more Pre-K based curriculum and I can already tell a difference in what my son has been learning. This is a Christian based Childcare center and these ladies are the type of people I want my kids with on a daily basis!
My daughter attended 2 years of preschool at the Women's Community Y and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was pleased to watch her grow & learn under the care of the teachers and staff. They are truly fantastic and care about your child. They also have an excellent summer program that we participated in for 2 years as well, the kids go swimming, go to the local parks, and also walk to see movies downtown! I recommend this program to everyone who asks where to send their child to preschool.
