Carpenter's kids was the first preschool I placed my son in. He was 3 and I never left him with anyone besides family. His teacher was amazing she sent me pics throughout that first day of him playing and having fun, which made me feel so much better. Everyone there soon became family. They had so many fun activities, including a circus the kiddos put on. I strongly recommend carpenters kids. I wish they were open earlier because I would have my son enrolled there again. I formed such a bond with his teacher that I still call her for advice once in a while. Can't say enough good things about this school. I also loved the playground. Go check it out and you will see why ;)

We love Parents' Cooperative! The teachers are great and really get to know each child individually. Class sizes are small, and the curriculum is excellent, but is adjusted by how the class is performing. The most wonderful thing, though, is the parent involvement! It is run by the parents, and you get to help in the classroom about 1 time a month, so you can see how your kids are doing in the classroom, how they interact with the others, and you get to meet and interact with the other kids and their families on a much more personal level. We love it there, and I would recommend it to anyone!
The bad review is from a ex employee that was let go. If anything that she said was true we would not be in business, much less have 3 locations full of happy families.
