I placed my daughter here when she was two, back in 2008. When I had my son in December, I was delighted that Imagination Day School had opened and infant room. I absolutely LOVE the infant room! The two ladies working with the babies (Ms. M and Ms. D) are loving, nurturing, caring, and super protective about those babies! Although our daughter is now enrolled in school, she still comes back for the awesome summer camp provided by IDS. We love our summers with Ms. B and Ms. T! The only classrooms that are completely enclosed are the baby rooms. The rest are separated by solid wall partition, and I have never witnessed a room unattended. Like most daycares, there is a kitchen, but I have never seen a child in the kitchen, even with staff. When I have had concerns about anything, I simply spoke with the owners who are there every day to assist the staff in caring for the children. The biggest problem is that some of the parents at this day care could benefit from some parenting classes. Some of the parents are a little rough. But, this is a family style daycare. I wouldn't want my children anywhere else!
Scottsdale Academy has provided both our boys a loving, caring and nurturing environment while building a solid educational foundation. Their curriculum actively engages the children thus enhancing their learning experience. The personal side encourages a sense of uniqueness and importance to each child. The laughter and smiles at the end of the day are evidence enough. The family atmosphere, friendliness of all the staff, openness of the owners and quality of curriculum make this experience a positive and confident first step in their educational pursuits.
Scottsdale Academy has been a wonderful place for our daughter. Each and every day she continues to learn more and more and grow into a “big girl”. The organizational skills of the faculty are second to none and the teachers have far exceeded our high expectations. We love Scottsdale but our daughter loves it even more!
