We initially went to visit UADC when our oldest daughter was staying home with a Nanny and just needed some additional time with other kids. Our neighbors had sent their 2 girls to UADC and couldn't say enough about the wonderful staff and teachers there. After touring the school we signed up and haven't regretted it for a day since. The teachers really are phenomenal and they do an amazing job of preparing the kids for the transition to kindergarten and teaching them other very important skills like how to behave in a classroom environment, how to get dressed yourself and how to resolve conflicts with other children. Our oldest daughter just completed kindergarten and many of the staff at her school asked where she attended preschool because they were so impressed with her self assurance and abilites in the classroom. We are equally impressed with how our now 4 year old has flourished at UADC and thrilled that she will be joining the 4k (wizard) classroom in the fall. I always feel like the staff takes the time to listen to us and our children and really feel like the school is one big family. Additionally, the school provides many special field trips including: spanish, dance, yoga, art and music. They take the children on many fieldtrips, stress the importance of time outside and offer wonderful healthy meals! We can't wait for our baby to start in the preschool classroom (buckaroos) in the next year. I would definitely recommend UADC to anyone who is looking for a child focused center.

We desired to move our son from an in home daycare setting to a preschool setting when he turned 3 years old. We were very discouraged after 14 visits to daycare/preschool settings and not feeling a connection to any of them. We registered at a center that felt "acceptable" and then googled for a preschool for one last time finding UADC. We enrolled upon completion of our tour and have not doubted our decision for a moment. Our son is now 5 years old and will be entering into kindergarten next year. The development our son has experienced is beyond words - he is a well rounded child - emotionally and intelligently. The teachers at the school have been great "coaches" to myself as a parent ... Thanks to them we discovered at an early stage our son needed glasses. We are going to be heading to kindergarten next year and have been told our son is exceeding in all areas of development and is very well prepared for the next chapter of life. It is great having a child who likes going to school! I would want to mention that the school is not fancy, does not have a lot of the high-tech components (the classrooms do have iPads), however the connection between the educators and the children are admirable. I highly recommend UADC to all parents who are looking for an exceptional preschool program that is truly child focused.
Our 5 year old daughter began UADC when she was three and is currently in the 4-K program. We love it. The school provides an enriched learning environment with daily specials including music, dance, yoga, and Spanish. The general philosophy of UADC is play based learning which incorporates math, science, and especially focuses on the arts. The teachers and staff are highly qualified, extremely supportive, and open to new ideas. The kids go on many field trips and often go to the public library, the zoo, or to UW-Madison to participate in various events. They offer care until 5:30 and summer camp, which is perfect for working parents. I would highly recommend UADC for child care and 4K. They also offer an after school program for older children. While the class rooms are well organized and UADC has wonderful recourses, the building itself is in the basement of an old church. The church is a great building, but it is very dated. UADC is not affiliated with the church in any way, but rents space in the basement. Compared to some of the newer facilities we have seen for other programs, UADC may be lacking. However, we find the quality of the program is far superior to many schools with nicer facilities and is well worth the tradeoff.
I went to Salon Rue Cler for the first time and was looking for an entirely new hairstyle. The atmosphere of the salon was very relaxing and the staff were very friendly. I explained to Pam what I was contemplating and she listened well and completely understood what I wanted. She was able to tell me what would work with my lifestyle, my coloring, and the shape of my head and face. As Pam cut and colored my hair she was always sensitive and communicated well because she wanted me to feel comfortable with what she was doing. I have a fantastic hair cut and the coloring is natural and beautiful. I am impressed with how thorough she is with the details and will definitely go back because Pam is extremely excellent at what she does and I consider her to be an artist.
I went during the middle of the day on a Monday and I was helped right when I signed in. I went from my medium length hair to a long bob. With the shampoo/conditioner included, the whole haircut took about 20 minutes max. The person cutting my hair didn't talk to me much, but she did ask me whenever I wanted to change up what she was doing. She listened to everything I wanted to do and did everything very well. $23 for a pretty good haircut is not too bad. I would definitely come back!
My daughter has been attending UADC for about 4 months now and it's been a great experience so far! They provide a fun, safe environment, rich with a great variety of stimulus and activities, resulting in a very well rounded development. They even have their own cook preparing healthy meals from scratch and local ingredients whenever possible. All the staff are great actually. Also, when considering the complete package offered at this preschool, the price is really very reasonable.
This is a great salon: individual attention by a fantastic experienced hair stylist, and the space has just been remodeled. You'll love Joseph's technique and if you need advice he knows it all, from styles to what will work for you and your hair, to hair product advice. He has cut and colored my hair for years, always keeping up with styles. When he colors my hair, it looks natural and grows out well over time. Now my daughter, a college theater major, is also a happy client.
I've had quality cuts done by the females who work at the location really friendly. I'm sorry for the lack of the name but don't go to the Russian guy. He didn't listen to how I wanted my hair done and made a bunch of really rude comments. I told him I didn't want any length of the top and he trimmed more than half of it off. If I do return I will definitely avoid him at all costs. If he is having a bad day he will take his frustration out on your hair, trust me
The first and only time I've been to Nogginz (so far!) was a wonderful experience. I went in to get a dramatically different hair cut (past shoulder length curly hair to pixie cut) and was more that happy with the result. The staff patiently listened to exactly how I wanted the new cut and asked follow up questions to make sure I got what I wanted. I would and do recommend Nogginz to whoever would like a quality hair cut at a very decent price.
I have been coming to see Angelina since Rick N Glam opened. I have been thrilled to pieces with my hair every time and have gotten tons of compliments on my color. Her prices are reasonable and I can always count on her quality of service every visit. We have so much fun laughing and talking I hardly notice how fast the time goes and I am done. She always has a coupon to hand out or a discount offer on various websites to help save money.
