My Mother and Dad's anniversary was last week, and even though my father pasted away many years ago, I wanted to give her a gardenia corsage just like the one she wore 66 years ago when she married my father... I wanted it as soon as possible, and I called several flower shops in my neighborhood. Although they would order them for me, they didn't really seem interested, since it was a small order, and they all said it would be at least a week before they could get them for me... I needed them as soon as possible, so I decided to make one last call to The Tiger Lily, even though they were not as convenient to my home... I spoke to Michele, who was so helpful, and actually seemed interested in helping me. Before she ordered the gardenias, she took the time to call their other locations, just to see if any of them might have some in stock... Michele understood how important it for me to get something so special for my Mom, and she was able to get them for me in TWO DAYS !!! I have never seen my Mom so moved over flowers before, and you know you've done something right when you can bring tears to your Mom's eyes... They must have been the freshest flowers imaginable, because they are over a week old now, and they are still beautiful, still floating in a crystal bowl next to my Mom's chair, and still filling our entire home with their incredible perfume. I should have just called The Tiger Lily first, and I would have saved myself a lot of time and frustration. I don't often order flowers, but The Tiger Lily created my wedding flowers several years ago, and they were to most beautiful flowers I had ever seen... They not only made my incredible bouquet, but they also decorated my wedding cake, including the topper, my toasting glasses, my cake knife/server, and the entire table.... The cake table was the focal point of my reception, and I didn't see the finished product, until I walked into the reception with my guests right behind me....I can't tell you how pleased I was to find that the flowers not only beautiful, but arranged with such care, and obvious pride. The Tiger Lily will be the only florist I call from now on... <Mrs.G.Palmer
This place is great, but it wasn't always. I'm giving it five stars for what it is, as I write this review, not what it was when I first started bringing my child here. In the beginning there was a different director and the center was open 24 hours, but there was really no structure and it seemed a little chaotic, to say the least. For the price, it couldn't be beat. One day, my daughter started crying when we were dropping her off for preschool and this persisted for a couple days, then my girlfriend brought it to the director's attention. My girlfriend had noticed changes in the teachers and my daughter was not adjusting well. The director, who was a new one, set up an appointment so they could have a sit down conversation. We were not pleased, before this appointment and wanted to know what was going on and why our daughter was feeling the way she was about the school. So, come to find out, they had been letting some teachers go and bringing in new ones and changing the structure of the classes to be more school like, rather than daycare like. The reason they were letting some teachers go was because they were bringing in more qualified people to fill the positions, after they had hired a new director, who is much much better than the original director. They have always worked with us, as far as payment goes, as long as you let them know in advance, which is like any bill. After setting up the new structure, my daughter, who was two at the time, was bumped up into the 3 year old class because she was doing so well, and they have talked about moving her up another class, since she has turned 3. I have been taking my daughter here since two weeks after they opened, so I've been there since the beginning and have seen the good and bad and the great changes and improvements that have been made. I wouldn't take my daughter anywhere else. Oh and their hours are Monday-Saturday 6am-midnight. Not 24 hours anymore, but not bad at all.
this is a great location for a family getaway or Staycation during the winter school break if you are in Las Vegas as a local or want a break from the strip. We stayed one night with two elementary aged children. We stayed in cabin 9,which I believe is one of the largest they have. It is located near the office and parking lot but is set back far enough from the road so there is no noise. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the cabin and the amenities. I was not expecting much to be honest, but was impressed as the cabin had two elaborate four poster beds, a two sided fireplace, two large sofas, a flat screen TV for DVDs, a jacuzzi tub and large dining table. The cabin also has a nice balcony/ deck with porch swing and chairs. We enjoyed the serenity, proximity to the Lodge for dinner and beautiful views of Cathedral Rock. The kids enjoyed sledding in Lee Canyon near the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard resort. You can't beat the fact that it only takes 30 minutes from Las Vegas and you are a world away! Bear in mind this is a rustic setting so the furniture is scuffed and hodgepodge, don't expect more and you won't be disappointed.
I recently moved into the Silverado Ranch area near Henderson. We are new to town and came from California where we loved the school our children went to for many years. I went on the internet and checked out a few schools and began making some phone calls. Then I called Kids R Kids on Serene, Wow what a difference. First of all they took the time to answer any question that I had. Others seemed to busy and just wanted to end the phone call. Then the person I was speaking to said the most important thing of all. They said, “you have just taken the first step calling around to centers, but the most important next step is to go and actually take a tour of the ones you seemed interested in”. They went on to say that all schools are run differently, and seeing is believing. I took their advise, and without a doubt Kids R Kids on Serene is the best. Warm, friendly, clean, attention to details, and most importantly they spend loving time making my children feel at home each and every day. Don’t take my word for it, do what I did go and take a tour. You will see why my family has made Kids R Kids on Serene our new home.
Bright child learning center located at South Fort Apache road is very nice place for my son. Acutally, we moved to west six month ago. At first, we searched for a daycare everywhere to find a good place for my 3-year-old son. The daycare where my son used to go was not good in terms of every aspect (for example, the circumstance, food, teacher's qualification,etc), so we really needed to find one which was good enough for us to trust. After careful consideration, we chose the bright child learning center. Not only good reviews, but also their kindness during the first tour of their educational facilities attracted us. My son goes to daycare well everyday not crying and he enjoys playing with his teachers and friends. Also, the lunch menu at the daycare is various and changes every week. The teachers are very kind and caring. I can feel and see that they really care for my son. Most of all, I like this daycare because we can watch our son anytime through web camera. By watching over the web-cam, we feel very relieved. I strongly recommend bright child learning center at S. Fort Apache for your adorable kids.
Wow, what a blessing to our family. Our family moved to Las Vegas 3 months ago when my husband was transferred for new work. What a big change for our family. As I too had to return to work our family needed to find a loving home for our children. We found it at Kids R Kids on Serene. We visited many schools but found no other which felt like a home rather than a business. We were so excited about the internet viewing cameras so that my husband and i can actually watch our children at school. I don't to worry if my child is having a good day, I can see them right in their classroom. My day begins by having morning breakfast with my children in the Kids R Kids cafe, and then I run off to work. About 9:30 I peek in and watch the daily circle time learning, and can see my daughter go to the whiteboard and share. Way cool. Our world is starting to come together after our move, but I can tell you that Kids R Kids on Serene is now the biggest part of our new LV family. I strongly encourage any family who wants a wonderful learning home for their child to check out the Kids R Kids in Silverado Ranch.
My son and I were looking for a good breakfast place during our visit to Vegas and Eat had lots of positive reviews so we decided to give it a try. We showed up around 1pm and there was a 15-20 minute wait. We stuck out the wait and we were both glad we did !!! The menu is pretty small (which I like) and consisted of a bunch of classic comfort food items with a twist. After much debate my son decided on the truffle egg sandwich and I had the chicken fried steak. They were both really yummy and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The portions were pretty generous and I was only able to eat about half of my dish and took the rest home. The coffee was good and the service was really excellent. We also really liked the vibe of the place and the clientele which consisted of primarily young hipsters and foodies. Some of the other items that looked really good were the pancakes (lots of people seemed to be enjoying them), the corned beef hash, the grilled cheese, and the huevos motulenos. We'll have to try them next time, I guess !!!
Mrs,. Gloria and Bring Em Young Academy has been such a HUGE blessing in our lives. As a mother of 1 year old twins and a 3 year old I was extremely hesitant as to whether someone could handle the amount of attention and energy they required. Mrs. Gloria had a true gift to relate to each of my children's needs from the moment I dropped them off on the very first day. My children adore Mrs. Gloria and talk about her on the weekend and are happy to get in the car to see her on Monday! As a teacher it is vital for my children to be in an academically enriched environment, but I was not ready to send them to a large learning facility. Bring Em Young is truly the best of both worlds. Mrs. Gloria puts an incredible amount of time into the kids' activities. Each day they come home with a detailed report of their day and a purposeful and fun lesson(s) that they have worked on. I would recommend Bring em Young over and over again and can only pray we find someone so loving and knowledgeable as Mrs. Gloria again!
Las Vegas is a city of World Class Hotels, Casinos and Restaurants. Natural Touch Silks is a World Class Business that should be a destination all on its own. Aside from your initial, "OH, WOW!!!!" reaction when you walk in the front door, the adventure just continues as you spend more time with all of the folks at Natural Touch Silks. Their product is World Class Quality. Their selection is World Class Unending. Their service is World Class Professional. The owner, Richard, and the entire staff at Natural Touch Silks are there to provide you with anything you may need. If they don't have it, they will search the planet until they can find it for you. If they can't get it, it just doesn't exist. Even if you aren't looking for anything in particular, you should visit them, just so you can be a part of their world, even if it's just for a short period of time. I can't recommend this store enough when it comes to Service, Selection and Quality.
I just found Kids R Kids on South Jones to be a great school for my daughter. People always tell you what you want to hear when you are looking to put your child somewhere, but after you enroll it all changes. At Kids R Kids, they truly deliver!!!!! Jessica has come a long way since we enrolled her in the preschool program a few months ago. She is learning phonics, math, science, along with Spanish and music. She brings home homework every week that she must complete and return. I like doing her homework with her and see her progress. I also love the internet feature, I often sign on and watch what they are doing during the day.. This Kids R Kids is the best, I really like her teacher and she talks about her classmates all the time. She looks forward to going to school now, unlike with the other place. This location also has an all day private Kindergarten program and 1st grade which tells me that they really believe in higher education. Glad i found them!
