Not a very good experience with my two and half year old there only 3 months. Last week I had it when an officer showed up at my door reporting cps was notified by the daycare alleging bruises and scratches all over his body! It was crayola marker! I told his teacher the day before that he had colored himself. It was clear as day. Yellow orange and purple marker. I took him out that very day. Apparently they lack eyesite as well as hearing. Also they have ruined every shirt from overuse of bleach and constantly I pick my son up with complaints of him being hurt and them not knowing how. Beware! !

My child has been attending Kids Incorporated for a few months now and I am so pleased with the care he has received! His teacher, Ms. Lucy is amazing- she teaches him Spanish words and is always SO kind and caring. I feel great leaving him in their care and plan to do so for as long as I can! THANK YOU Kids Inc for all you do!
There are a couple teachers there that are AMAZING. However, time after time I drop my child off (been going there over 2 years) or pick him up and the teachers are flat out yelling at the kids. This morning as I went to drop off my child, yet again, 2 out of the 3 teachers in the room were yelling at the kids. My son clung to me and asked to leave. I informed the person covering the front (one of the AMAZING teachers) that we won't be back. As we're leaving, you can hear from outside teachers yelling at the kids. There are better ways to get a kid's attention other than yelling at them! When I saw the fear in the kids' eyes this morning, that was my last straw with this place. I feel bad I kept him there as long as I did
We have had our daughter at Sorrento since 2012. While there has been some periods of high turn-over - I don't think it's that different than most daycare centers. Sorrento has a strong focus on academics and I have been amazed at what my daughter has learned in just a few short years of attending. She will be well prepared for kindergarten!
Our kids loved KDA! The teachers are very attentive and actually care about each individual child. When we first brought our daughter here 3 years ago I was nervous but she loved it and immediately had a connection with her teacher. I felt secure knowing my kids were safe and being loved. Both of our kids have excelled developmentally. They offer an excellent curriculum as well as extras like field trips to the pumpkin patch, tumblebus, soccer, book fairs, and haircuts. We highly recommend this place and were very sad when we had to move.
From a personal level, the school is a safe place to attend. It offers a lot of tools available to you. This is a wonderful school. This school simply is fantastic!

My children were at the Blue Skies and Butterflies Beaverton location for over two years until our youngest "graduated" to first grade this past June. I have to tell you that I really loved it at BSB and my husband and I both had a nice experience. If you are looking for a place to take your children that has beautiful grounds in a quiet neighborhood then you need to give them a chance. The teachers here seem to really care and our children were very happy the entire time they were there. This is a really nice preschool and I highly recommend them.
I would recommend Blue Skies and Butterflies to everyone in the Beaverton area who has young children. Not only is the staff very friendly but my two kids seem to be very happy there. They have the most beautiful grounds, it almost feels like a park. There are always birds singing when I drop my kids off and I really like that. There is also several play areas and one is covered. There is also a lot of grass and natural areas for the kids to play and explore. This is a great center and you should check it out.
As a Montessori child of the 1970s, I knew I wanted my children to have that same experience. I researched schools in the Portland/Beaverton area for the "right" Montessori program. I chose Little Fruit Farm because the owner and teacher of the school, Lauren, embodies the essence of the Montessori way. She is a highly skilled instructor and practitioner of the Montessori Method. I remember visiting the school before enrolling my oldest son and just walking around the various learning ares brought back so many positive memories...the red rods, the brown blocks, the sensorium...and hearing Lauren's specific plans for our son sealed the deal for me. Such a diverse, creative, intimate learning environment--my 4 year old loves going to school and my 2 year old is now being introduced as well. I see such positive changes in language development, social skills, reading/writing, and creativity. Little Fruit Farm Montessori has my highest recommendation.
