My 4 year old started here in September and she absolutely loves it. The lasses are small (8-9 kids) and the classrooms are clean and organized. I love knowing what my daughter has learned that day (written on a chalkboard outside every day) and getting her art/classwork in a folder daily. The teachers are amazingly nice and attentive. The hours for the school are wonderful and while a little pricey, I think totally worth it for the experience my daughter is receiving. She's learning so much (months, days of the week, sight words, rhymes, math, etc.) that it's hard for me to keep up with her quickly growing knowledge. My daughter loves doing her homework and can't wait to bring her drawings to her teacher. She even asks me to take her to school on Saturday and Sunday. I'm very glad we opted to go with Parkdale and will be sending my son here next year.

My grandson has been going to Parkdale for over a year now. I love all the people that work here. Everyone has been nothing but wonderful to my grandson since the day he has arrived. He has learned so much. I am sad that this will be his last year there as he will be starting Kindergarten. Although, I am happy that he will still be able to attend before, and after school here.
This is such an amazing place for your child to grow.and learn. The staf are amazing and very professional. Mrs T goes above and beyond to.make things right and makes you feel right at home. Treshell is so sweet and has made my sons learning experience there fantastic and my family adores her.
My daughter has been attending Parkdale since she was 18 months old. She is now 3 1/2. She absolutely loves it there! I am a student who is going to school to be a teacher, so I know what to look for in a school environment. Parkdale has it all! The staff is wonderful and supportive. My daughter has learned so much there! I am expecting now, and plan on sending the new baby to them. I can't say enough great things about this school.
Appalling!! I toured this facility on 6/19/17 the lady in the office at the time was rudely short appearing to be bothered by me wanting to tour the place the building was very hot window units were in the main front room & office the halls & other rooms very very stuffy. The play yard is mostly concrete and it was breaking apart in several areas I would think this a hazard for the 2yr. The lady that gave me the tour was nice and friendly I started to ask her why she worked in a place like that I saw several class rooms & was shown where my child would be there were kids eating Cheese sandwiches off the table they were sitting at no plates or other food the place looked awful plain white chipped Walls no color no posters no school decor for a place where kids spend up to 10 hrs a day there should be more lively looking stuff this really did look like a jail the building itself I in terrible shape and not inviting I can only imagine how a child sees it I was ready to leave after 2 mins the kids I saw weren't laughing or smiling they didn't appear to be happy I reviewed the social services report when I was waiting to be shown the place I can't believe some of what I read out of the 10 daycare I visited this was the worst I can't believe the owner of this place didn't do anything to make it brighter more welcoming to scared kids its shameful I hope parents do their research before putting another kid in this _hole
