Westport School Childcare
1915 Ross Ave, Saint Louis, MO 63146
I would recommend The Westport School. Our son has been in attendance for over 3 months in the infant room and I love the teachers. He smiles everyday when he sees his teachers and friends. They communicate well, are professional and even though they are larger than some of the other centers I have visited I always feel right at home and like my son and I are very important. So glad Westport / Maryland Heights area has such a great school/daycare.
My son has been going to Westport School since he was 11 months old. He's nine now. Ms. Suzanne and Ms. Donna has been employed there the entire time. They are like family to us. My son is now in 4th grade attending before and after care. I don't worry about him because I know he's in good hands.
Suzanne is the Director of the school and has been a great resource to me for child development issues.
I highly recommend them. Can't imagine my son being anywhere else.
Management and Teachers are very nice people. Jim is running this school for 40 years! and he is very nice man. Director Ms.Suzanne is very welcoming and preschool teachers Mr.Terri and Ms.Cary are kids friendly. And I like the flexibility of school hours 6:30 am to 6:30 pm. You can drop your child anytime between those business hours.
Thank you so very much Westport School for all of the top notch care that you provide our children. While our two children are with you we have total confidence in the care you provide. All of your staff are simply amazing, caring, kind, professional, nourishing and stock full of wisdom. The environment that you have created feels as if we are leaving our children with family, and like the other daycares/schools that we have experienced. It is really awesome the curriculum that you have in place, and the way that you have balanced learning, creating, caring and recreation. Thank you again for all that you do, and we hope we never forget to say thank you so very much. Jes and Margaret C
After a horrible day care situation my daughter was in (a student kept biting her and the previous day care did NOTHING), I heard about The Westport School. Upon me walking in to take a tour, I was treated with respect, kindness and overall happy atmosphere, I signed her up! I am so glad I did. She has been so happy! The teachers are hands on, truly care for her and let me know of her progress on a consistent basis. I am so happy I have found The Westport School! So is my daughter!
My daughter attended the Westport School for 2 years, starting at age 2 1/2. She always looked forward to going to school and seeing her teachers and friends. Her teachers were wonderful and really cared about her. Everyone who worked there was very nice. The Director was very involved in what was going on every day and personally took an interest in each child. I highly recommend the Westport School for child care.
I have twin boys that have been going to the Westport School for almost two years now, and I could not be happier with the entire experience. Ms. Mellisa and Ms. Leah keep the boys engaged with fun and exciting activities. I would recommend Westport Daycare to anyone who is looking for a quality school for their children.
I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to the teachers and all caregivers at the Westport School. This has been a wonderful environment for my son to learn interesting subjects and experiments. The kindness and dedication of each person there really makes a difference in the experience the children have. We are grateful for the individual attention that each child receives and are conscious of how much self esteem building has been accomplished in these important younger years. Our son is just now beginning kindergarten but will definitely be back for summer camp. The Westport School staff is filled people who make a positive contributions for the benefit of the children. Thanks again!
Words cannot express how wonderful Westport School has been to me and my children! After almost 5 years there, my children have grown and blossomed under the care of some of the most dedicated and caring child care experts I have ever met. Never once did I worry about my kids during my work day because I knew they were being nurtured and educated by some of the most patient yet down-to-earth people - who know how to let kids be kids in the best way possible.
There is always terrific continuity of care because their staff turnover rate is so low. Over time, my kids have been in the infant-toddler, 2&3s room, pre-school, pre-kindergarten, and school-age programs and all are equally fabulous! My older children still look forward to visiting to see their favorite teachers, who are still there. (Big hugs to Miss Melissa, Miss Terry, and Miss Donna!)
If you can't stay home with your kids, this is the next best thing!
Words cannot express how much of wonderful experience our family has had in the four years of our sons life, he started at 12 weeks old, and from the moment I felt at ease leaving him in loving arms. The teachers are extraordinary, always hugging and loving on the children, while providing excellent level of education, values, manners, potty training, socializing, playtime,arts and much more....all the teachers have been the numerous years and some 20 &30 years, that told me something is right for people to stay that long, I receive pictures on my son doing arts or napping and much more nice feedback. The owner listens well and put in a new 30,000$ Playground, and hands out a healthy snack at the end of the day ;). I would refer anyone looking for
A warm family orientated place for their child or children. Plus great access to the highwaylll
After looking around at several centers, including ""chain centers"" my husband and I found that this school was the best fit for our son! The caregivers there are educated but most importantly, loving and attentive. As soon as we arrive in the morning, my son is greeted with a hello and a hug. When he is having a hard time saying goodbye, Miss Suzanne or Miss Donna takes give him encouragement and helps with the transition. He loves to wave at the window! I have peeked in after and they hug him and give him activities to choose from. Child care is a difficult decision but we both feel confident with leaving our 3 year old son there. The staff is always willing to talk to us about anything and I feel as if they are part of our family now!! I highly recommend this center! Thank you Wesport School!
This place has been amazing for my three year old son-- Compared to his old school, I noticed a marked difference right away. It's been exciting to see him progress so quickly. The food has been great. The teachers have really been accomodating, loving and helpful. I can't thank them enough.

Chilcare is always a sensitive subject and choosing the best facility is sometimes hard. The Westport School was at best, average. The teachers were caring and loving, however, the building has an odor and was dirty at times. I did observe yelling and screaming by the staff instead of proper disapline tactics?
The manager and owner tended to avoid feedback from us as parents and seemed to only be concerned about payment. O.k. place to send your kid, if you have no others options. Honestly, I would not consider it a long term solution after sending my child there...
After a bad experience at another daycare I was hesitant to trust anyone with my son. After talking with Jim (the owner), meeting some of the staff, I was hopeful that this could be a place that I would trust to take excellent care of my son. After one week I was sold. This place is amazing. The staff are great. They respect your time in the morning if you are in a hurry but will also take the time to talk to you if you have questions. Safety is of utmost importance as well. I truly consider myself lucky to be able to send my son to the Westport School. And best of all, he loves it. I do not worry about how my son is being treated during the day. And that is worth more to me than anything.

The owner is there every afternoon and ckecks ID of Adults picking up their children. The supervisor is a wonderful woman and is there from 6:30 to 3:30. We set up an appointment to see what things were like and the adult to child ratio, especially in the infant and toddler (2), is about 1:3. Our 16 month old love it there and especially JEN who she adores. There are half and full week plans.
