Please DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE. They have unqualified teachers, they have bad teacher turn over rate. The food is not well prepared and not good. My nephew went to this school and my sister was so mad on how they handle their business. The daycare only eat soup everyday. Where is the 900 a month money going to because it's not the food. The Owner is rude and so is the Educational Director , She has no clue what she is doing. The gave my nephew chocolate pudding with cheese for breakfast and hot dog with no bun with hash brown and half of the bun for chicken paddy. If you want quality education this is not the school for your child. I recently found out that the department of health keep showing up. I don't know why this school is still in business they really don't care about the children like they claim. My sister had to withdraw him from this place. PLEASE FIND ANOTHER PLACE .
This daycare does not provide healthy meals for my child. My daughter told me that she had cookies and chocolate pudding for breakfast. Another time she told me she had animal crackers for breakfast. She is not given any food during the afternoon and she is there all day. The staff are friendly. The educational director is very rude and unprofessional. There is a high teacher turnover rate at this daycare. This shows that something it happening in the school. I suggest bringing your child to another daycare.
Nice school; clean and professional. Owners where very nice and know what they want for the children in their facility and that is to learn and be reading for kindergarten.
Terrible place. They are not high on safety. Children cross the street next to trucks on a busy 3rd avenue street. Not an inviting environment. My child was not incorporated into morning activities once we arrived. Would not recommend to any one..
My daughter attended their daycare the owners is extremely unprofessional when it comes to handling concerns about the schools curriculum. I originally inquired about this school after seeming a good friend daughter speaking Another language and was learn verging well. I decided to send my daughter there. I found the school under staffed. The teacher arrives at 10-10:30 am daily. The principle shows up in the afternoon leaving the school under very little guidance. My the teachers were not consistent with there lesson plan and when I inquired the principle was rude to both myself and my husband. I would not recommend this school at all. Children needs a school that can work with the teachers to ensure academic success. You wouldn't find that here.
This place is disgusting very unprofessional environment there are alot of recovering addicts here they have mice and squirrels running around this place the workers don't care about the clients they just want there Medicaid insurance and after that your nothing to them do not send your loved ones here very ghetto place and disgusting beware of Abby she's there mascot she will try to tell you anything good about this place DONT BELIEVE HER ALL LIES.

Highlights Academy is the best nursery in and around the crown heights area. This school reminds me of back home in the Caribbean where learning is the key to success. This Caribbean based school is run by Ms Mendes, a Jamaican lady who is passionate about education. She might come off as rude to those parents who are uninvolved and uncooperative who are seeking babysitting services, but are disappointed when they realize it us a school in every sense. I have 6 children and I have sent all of them to Highlights Academy and I will refer all parents to send their children too. I use to work at a nursery too and not all staff members are truly passionate about kids. Some are just in for the pay. Ms Mendes is a lady who runs her school with her heart and she gives endlessly. BIG UP TO MY KIDS DIRECTOR MS MENDES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our family is extremely pleased with our son's experience at Learn and Explore Daycare. Learn and Explore has been wonderful. It is very clean and meets all of our expectations. The staff is always greeting you with a friendly smile and makes you feel welcome. The entire team has made the transition very easy and I feel secure knowing my son is in a safe environment and in loving hands. The activities he does in class with his favorite teachers are age appropriate and engaging. I love seeing pictures of him and his friends interacting with each other and truly enjoying themselves. We love the daily communication from our son's teachers. We receive feedback on his eating habits, behavior/moods, what he experienced during the day, and special notes from his teachers. This Daycare is the perfect match for our baby. We wouldn't go anywhere else!!!
