This is a truly warm church. Even if you've never been there you arrive as a friend. Don't want the mega-churches where you can disappear? Orcutt is small enough to be family and big enough to offer great programs. The service is God-focused, enthusiastic and positive. Music is a mix of contemporary and traditional. Dress code is non-existent. Want to wear a suit? You'll fit in. Blue jeans and a casual shirt? Yep. As the web site says: you are asked to only bring yourself - and maybe a friend. Finding it is no problem. New to the area? Military? You're gonna love it.
Wonderful and clean daycare! I’m the overly uptight mother, I was worried about my children going to daycare until I came here. When I come to pick my boys up they are happy to see me but they do not want to leave. Which to me is tremendous and a great sign! Our toddler has learned so much from his classroom including writing, arts, social skills and so much more! The staff is very caring and friendly. I highly recommend this daycare!
Have Hand, Foot, Mouth disease. My children have contracted this 2x with in 4 mths and the center has not closed the doors to disinfect the center, several kids have been affected by this. Only thing the center has done was posted a flyer notifying parents it is present... But what have the done to eliminate the source of having it? NOTHING. I pay more then $300 a month for my children they should be taken care of in a clean environment that i can trust. I will be contacting the local health department on this matter today.
Giggles and learning Academy are the absolute best. At first I was skeptical about putting my child in daycare, I didn't have to do this with my daughter, but I feel I made the best decision possible. My job is next door so I am able to peak at him throughout the day. My son is now 6 months old and has been attending since he was 8 weeks old. The teachers and other workers there are so great with him and everyone looks forward to seeing him every morning. I just want to say thank you and keep up the good work.
Being that I have twins, it was very important to find a daycare that I could not only trust but was also affordable and this academy meets both of those needs! My children have grown very fond of their teacher and the other workers there and look forward to going there each morning.I have also seen a great improvement in them with their physical, social and cognitive development since having enrolled them.
My daughter has attended we love kids for a year and a half and it has been so comforting knowing she was in the hands of teachers that truly care. My daughter has learned so much and comes home every day with something new and positive she has picked up on. No daycare is perfect everything is a working progress and I see the staff at we love kids always trying to improve things. Any issue I have ever had has been easy to resolve with Ms. K.
I was introduced by a friend to RLS and I remember our first day at that school. I had a sense of comfort mainly because of great teachers and stuff who created a great atmosphere. They are truly caring, friendly and helpful. Our girl started when she was 3 years old, not speaking English at all and that was her first daycare. Today, she absolutely loves it here and always talks about her friends and teachers with a great joy and respect. I feel very comfortable leaving her there, because I know that she is in good hands and that she will have a lot of activities and fun.This school is so much more than just a school for us. I can not say enough good things and I truly recommend it to everyone.
What a relief is to leave my beautiful child in doting care of the wonderful people at RLS! The whole school is like a little family -- everyone knows everyone else, kids play together and learn together. The classes are small -- from 4 to 10 students at the most -- so every child gets a lot of individualized attention. The best part about the RLS is their teachers and staff. During our initial visit to the school, it took my then-2-year-old just a moment or so to feel the warmth of the lady who was to be her teacher and did not want to leave! She has since changed her teachers twice, as she grew (she is now 5), and loved each teacher with passion! This year, after the first class with the new teacher, she wanted to go home with her, and cried when I told her she couldn't. Now, that's awesome!My wife and I researched all the day cares and schools in the area. We have many friends with kids in other schools, and we share stories. However, we have not found or heard of a school which is as personal and caring as RLS. Oh, and not to mention about half the price of the other places, with nice discounts for multiple kids!Neither my wife nor I are Lutheran, but were accepted by the teachers and the staff at RLS, and found a home for our child there.I recommend the school without any reservations!
Caring community + convenient and flexible hours + small class sizes + great academics = we love RLSTeachers and staff are caring, and their loving attitude permeates into the behavior of their students. All children know each other by name and recognize who parents each child.The teachers and staff at RLS are supportive not only of their students but also of their families. My family underwent some emotional hardship in the recent past, and the pouring affection and attention were very helpful. You do not have to be Lutheran or even religious to appreciate this place.My child arrived there not speaking English, not potty-trained, and has truly blossomed in this school, academically, emotionally, and socially.Small class sizes translate into academics tailored to individual student needs.Great, spacious and well lit facilities. An environment conducive to learning and growingWholeheartedly recommend it.
I have had the privilege of knowing the owners of this bright, cheerful and welcoming child care center and have visited it on several occasions. Upon entering your eyes are drawn to the colorful, bright and cheerful decor. The facility is clean and fresh. The owners are a kind, loving, educated couple and it shows in their energy, kindness and affection for the children, who are always delighted in seeing them, running to greet them when they stop by to meet daily needs of the facility. They are in constant contact with the staff and are highly respected by all. They are proud that food provided to the children are above usual standards . Healthy, colorful meals and snacks are provided. My children are grown and grandchildren are school age but if they were eligible, this is the place I'd want them to be .
