I have 5 kids that attend this learning center from infant to boys overall the center is awesome and over the whole staff is very professional from the director,teacher,cook,bus driver and monitor..the kids learn,clean environment just to sum it all up Ivy League is off the chain and I highlyyyyyy recommend!!!!! If I knew the whole staffs name I would name but Ms. Mesh and Mr Melvin y'all are the best,
I recently enrolled my child at The Bright Ideas on Hilshire Circle and here's my honest review: They do a really good job overall, much much better than two other places I tried before. They really care about ALL the kids and it's a bigger than average facility, but you still get that "small " preschool feeling bc the children are divided into their own individual classrooms. This is not a daycare babysitter type place, it's a fun bright happy preschool. I really like the Director, she greets us every time we pick up and she's very involved in all aspects, not just "mgmt" stuff, I think she literally knows all kids by name and parents. I like that. The ASst. Director is a sweetheart. The teachers are teachers, not daycare workers and they take ownership of your child. Its so hard to find a good place for your child, but this is one of the good ones. They aren't perfect, but they sure try hard and definitely care. Ive already reserved my spot for fall. Very happy parent.
Excellent staff and having it located 10 mins from downtown is awesome. Love the environment. Thank you.
Bright Ideas is the BEST! The Director, Memrie is always nice, friendly and approachable. She goes out of her way everyday for the children and parents. You can tell she loves what she does. The Staff at Bright Ideas also carry the same loving enthusiasm, you can tell the bar is set high and all of the teachers rise to the high bar. They love their children and treat them as their own. This Center is Run well and has high standards that are upheld in all they do! Highly Refer!!
Absolutely gorgeous church in the heart of midtown. midnight mass here is a spectacle. The school attaches to the cathedral is a loving, diverse school with great teachers and involved parents.
VERY VERY UNPROFESSIONAL ESTABLISHMENT! THE OWNER HAS A BAD ATTITUDE. IF SHE EVER GOES INTO BUSINESS AGAIN I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND HER OR HER ESTABLISHMENT TO ANYONE. UNPROFESSIONAL IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT!!! Very unhappy grandparent

Please really look into what is going on at this school. There are SO many issues. The "administration" is by far the biggest. My child's teacher was never at school when I dropped off (we weren't early to arrive either) and she was never there at pickup. A few weeks into the year, I found out that she left at noon EVERY DAY. That was never disclosed to us. If we had known this, I would have begged for the other teacher, who seemed to be everything we had wanted. The decision to enroll at Evergreen Montessori was not a good one.
My first appointment did not go well. I arrived on time to an empty office. Everyone was at lunch. As I waited I listened to phone calls and voice messages being broadcast from their phone. Patients calling with personal info for everyone to hear. (Me-I guess-as I was the only one there) isn't that a violation?The staff started coming in and after a full 35 minutes I was finally spoken to. I had not even been looked at. Very awkward. Finally got to see the director and told him that I should probably find another facility. We worked through that and I stayed. I paid the required fee on every visit until I knew I had exhausted my deductible. At my request the bookkeeper also discovered that I was now probably overpaying. Now,,,, 3 months after my last appointment I've yet to receive a refund check. I've called and called and sent numerous emails to the director. He finally said he could no longer help me that it had gone to the corporate office and I should maybe call them. Today I discovered that my refund as not been processed yet at the local office and of course has not gone to the corporate office either. Really sad to think that no one cared enough to follow through with this, all the while assuring me that they were doing all that they could. I will be happy to get my $$$ back from them and would discourage anyone from using this business.
Please DON'T let your child attend this daycare.The environment is not suitable for kids, adults always hanging out at this center. Every time I visit this center the kids are crying or asleep. The outside toys are old and not fit of anyone child to play on. The owner is so rude," saying the state is paying for your childcare not you". I will be contacting DCS about is daycare center.
