Adorable daycare. Teachers are so sweet! I have been bringing my little one here for a few years now. We will miss it when he starts school.

Horrible! The director of the program would not allow me to see my daughter. I was out raged, angry and frustrated! I had to subpoena them to court! I hope they learn their lesson. Fathers have rights!!!!!!
I needed a new daycare after my old one closed without warning. Mari, the owner invited me in for a tour and made me feel so calm and cared for. I brought my mom with me (she worked at TMC for 8 years, so always around children) and we both loved it. I brought my son Jack and he loves it too. He always tells everyone hi and he loves his classmates. They always have great activities in class and Jack comes home with class work daily. He loves this daycare and he loves his teachers Ms Tanya and his new teacher and Isis so much. He gives them big hugs everyday. Mari cooks all the food in house and my son never complains. I would definitely recommend them to everyone.
My 2 year old daughter has been going here since they opened in May 2016, she has grown leaps and bounds compared to the previous pre-school she attended. The curriculum is very diverse and they teach sign language, numbers, letters and manners. From her teacher to the aides and administration, they're all very attentive to our child and genuinely seem to care. We wanted our daughter to have a good foundation, and rest comfortably knowing she's in the right place to do so. Oh, and the place is immaculate, and state of the art too!Thank you for all that you do!
We seek out the best educational experiences for our kids, and Little Folks is definitely that. My daughter wakes up every day cheering about going to school. She's reading and writing at a kindergarten level. She's three. And she's never stressed out or overworked--she just has a good time. She comes home with new songs and dances every day. Pleased as I am with her progress, it's Little Folks' work with my son that really takes the cake. He struggled with handwriting, and even after a year of occupational therapy, he couldn't form legible letters. Ms. Liseth had him writing words within four months, and enjoying it. When you visit, you'll notice that the classroom teachers can't give you their undivided attention during the school day. This is a good sign--they're engaged with the kids, constantly talking to them, teaching them things, encouraging them to work as a group. Finally, what a relief to find a truly diverse school in a city that is so often segregated by race and class.
Nana's playhouse is a great place! Teachers are always attentive and loving. The place is clean, neat, and in tip top shape. Definitely recommend
Extend-a-Care has been such a blessing to my family. The staff truly and genuinely cares for our children. They keep the children active and learning and keep an eye on them like family. Great program! Ms. Anna is so sweet and makes the long days for my child so much easier. She really understands and works well with the children.
I feel very lucky to have found this gem of a place for our 2.5 year old. He has been here for almost a year and we went from gently acclimating to being away from home to full potty training and now he asked us to take him to school on the weekends to see his friends. It's such a warm and caring environment. When I was searching I chose this place because it felt less scripted than some of the fancier looking places...my gut told me it was genuine and I am constantly pleasantly surprised by all our experiences we see our son picking up from this wonderful learning center. The director, Mrs Teran, knows each child and their personalities and how their days went...the teaching staff is so great and I have not seen any turnover which is exactly what I was told when I was searching. The work they do during the week gets sent home on Fridays and I can see the great things they are teaching my son and in addition he does things like taking his plate to the sink when he is done eating at home, picking up his toys, singing lots of songs, washing hands, learning his letters numbers and colors...I could go on. A bilingual/immersion experience was important to me, but I am loving that he is learning to be a good and kind person, not just smart, which is due to the loving environment provided here. I've had no issues with scheduling and find them very flexible when I have doc/dentist appts to work in or rare occasions where I get tied up with work and have our backups do pick up.
My Victoria is has improved on her speaking, leadership and writing skills because the activities at Norman EAC is supporting what her Pre-K teacher, Ms. Williams, is teaching. Victoria just turned 4 this past June and I am astounded at the continued development of her fine motor skills in after-school care. She is even learning to cook! She can now make her own sandwiches! The workers who were there when the school year began, Ms. Aisha and Ms. Flor, both showed Victoria how to use her kindness rather than selfishness to build friendship and I truly appreciate them for their patience. Norman EAC is a HUGE blessing to Victoria and I am a grateful working parent.
