Seeing as how the previous reviews were years ago, I felt compelled to write a review. There are two locations to CCP, one on Okoboji and the other on Las Tunas. The one on Okoboji is smaller and I ended up enrolling my son at the Las Tunas location because they had space. When I toured both locations, the teachers were welcoming, the kids were happy and playing and my son immediately felt comfortable. The teachers are awesome and give a lot of individual attention to each child. In two short months that he attended, he has already progressed and I see his skills developing. I checked all preschools and daycares within a 15 mile radius and it is amazing how half of them are disorganized and don't even call back. CCP called me back right away, made an appt to see me immediately and gave me all the info I needed. They are reachable by email and encourage parents to visit when they can. They also have outside activities planned every few weeks to give the kids a break from the routine. I am very thankful to have them and my son loves his teachers!
My daughter has been at AEP for almost a year. This has been a wonderful experience for my daughter. She has learned so many things. The teachers really focus on having the children learn how to express themselves, resolve conflict as well as socialization. The teachers and staff are all very caring, nurturing and loving. I'm so glad I found AEP. My only regret is that I didn't know about AEP for my older children.
My son has grown to be very mature & independent. He knows how to comfort people when they are down and does a good job taking care of his little sister. ACEC played a significant part in developing these attributes!
