I highly recommend Happy Hollow. My two boys have been there for two years now and have absolutely enjoyed their time. The teacher (owner) and the teaching assistants are fantastic. In fact, the teaching assistants are college students that are majoring in education! My children have have had the opportunity to be part of the Pre Kinder Program, after school, and summer camp. First, allow me to tell you about the pre-school/pre k, my youngest has attended since he was 3 (he is now 5). Celebrations are a big deal at Happy Hollow, huge parties for holidays and they really make the kids feel special on their birthdays as well. My youngest was born premature and he is a little behind the curve learning wise. The last two years he has gone to Happy Hollow, he has learned so much! He has excelled and is truly ready to rock kindergarten next year. He held his head so high like the other kiddos did walking across the stage it was beautiful at their Pre K and Preschool graduation ceremony. They had all worked so hard this year to accomplish their goals. Next, after school. The children are picked up from their local schools. They are ASSISTED with their homework and are able to play afterwards. It's a great feeling knowing that I don't need to worry about being bogged down with homework once home, I can check out what the assignment was and go about the usual nightly routine of laundry, dinner, clean. Ect. Last, Happy Hollow's summer camp. The children go on a lot of fantastic field trips, and have an opportunity to get swimming lessons as well. Unfortunately, due to my new summer work schedule- my boys will not be able to attend the camp and they are very upset about it. If you're looking for a special place that can give you piece of mind that your child is learning and being loved on, Happy Hollow is the place for your family. I really can't say enough how blessed we were to have found such a caring and kind school for them to grow and learn. Truly just the sweetest, and most knowledgable people I have had the pleasure of getting to know. Happy Hollow is WONDERFUL!

Disappointed My husband and I have been displeased with the quality of our son's care at this school. Once we found another child wearing his clothes, another time his sippy cup went untouched all day. Regularly we found him with food all over his face and clothes, and his diaper full. In the 4 months attended, there was a lot of turnover with both teachers and teaching assistants (2 teachers and 3 assistants), and no communication about the changes from the school. In fact, it was 2 weeks before we knew our son's teacher no longer worked there (there is an aide present when we drop him off and pick him up). We ended up having to call the school to ask about his teacher because when we went to pick him up, the aide was also new. The school did a poor job of communicating with us regarding what our son did during the day (ie how he slept, what he worked on, how he ate). The information we were able to get separately from his teacher and teacher's aide were rarely consistent. When asked if we could get occasional reports on our son's activities during the week, we were told that wasn't "Montessori". When my son stopped attending, we were informed by the head of the school that his teacher was unable to work with him because he only attended 2 full days a week (he is 2 years old and my husband stays at home with him). I wish we had known that from the beginning; we would have chosen a school that was willing to teach our child on a 2 days/week schedule. We are seeking educational enrichment for our son to break up the time he stays at home, not a drop-off daycare. All in all, disappointed with our experience; it was not at all what was presented to us when we met the teachers and toured the school.
Legacy Enrichment Academy definitely lives up to it's name. It is not just a daycare service, but functions like a preschool. My daughter started when she had just turned a year old. By 18 months she was reading simple words, potty training, counting to 10 in English AND Spanish, the list just goes on. I'm not sure why people would complain about gossip - Tammy was always always so consumed with the daycare and what was going on there. Everytime I would come in to drop off or pick up, she would just talk for the longest time about my daughter and everything she was doing during the day and nothing else. It was honestly like they were her own children, she was just so proud and could go on forever about them! It was the single hardest thing I've ever had to do to leave my child in someone else's hands everyday, and that's why I left the first daycare and moved to Legacy. The teachers at Legacy definitely did above and beyond an amazing job helping to raise my child for the second year of her life. She is about to turn three and I still see the effects of their teaching in her. The only reason I left Legacy was because I had a second child and am now a stay at home mom, but I tell everyone I know that Legacy is the only daycare I trust with my children.
i personally wouldn't recommend the daycare to anyone. my son started there at 18 and after the second day came home with bites and bruises. gramma states that that is what kids do. my son has become very violent to protect himself against the other kids. i walked in one day to pick up my son and a lil kid was pounding on him with a toy. the teacher was standing right next to him as he was crying for help and she just stood there until i said something. she also threatend to call cps on me because she said my son was violent and that was showing signs of neglect and no attention. i owed money to the daycare and instead of talking to me because im in there everyday they called my parents who don't have any say so and who dont even live with me and told them different lies and stories which has caused a family fued. this day care is drama and dangerous for kids. i would not recommend. also when a child turns 18 months the price is suppose to go down. i was told that i would still have to pay regular price until my son gets moved up to the 18 month old room because they dont have room and he isn't ready. but thats not what they advertise. they said at 18 months the price goes down.
I've been to a few Physical Therapy Centers over the years, but nothing compares to San Antonio Center for Physical Therapy! The staff is second to none. They are super friendly, and ready to help in any way possible.I really enjoyed all of my visits. It felt like I was working out with friends! Brian Nietz is an amazing Doctor of Therapy. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and an absolute blast to be around. I am a 40 year old athlete. A few months ago, I tore some ligaments around my ankle to go along with previous ankle injuries. My ankle was in pretty bad shape. The first doctor I went to said I needed multiple surgeries to repair the damage, and that I would never walk again. So I went for a second opinion. This time the doctor recommended Physical Therapy. To make a long story short, I went to San Antonio Center for Physical Therapy, and here I am playing basketball a few months later. Running and jumping after the first doctor said it wasn't possible. I will be forever in debt to Brian and his staff for literally getting me back on my feet! They are truly the best Physical Therapy Center in town!
I have been taking my kids here for a little over a year now and I have not had any problems with this daycare. The people there are kind and my kids love their teachers. The director is very detail oriented and organized. It is hard to judge a daycare base on what a teacher does. I do know that based on some of the comments i've seen the teacher is no longer there. BAD TEACHER NOT BAD DAYCARE. I do know that proper background checks are done prior to hiring. They are watched like a hawk, there are cameras in this place. In any place kids will do what they want and when they want they are kids and they will get bruises and scratches and kids wont get along sometimes. Most importantly kids will make messes and if you see your kid sitting in a messy highchair it probably means that your kid was just eating which means that the teacher was feeding your kid or just finished. all of this is part of being kids and dont complain if you decide to let someoine else raise your kids. After all they are with these teachers more than they are with you. Two thumbs up kids garden I love your curriculum.
First of all, if you are anything like me... a overly concerned mom, no one takes care of your children like you can, and just overly paranoid ;) read THIS! I have 2 sons, 4 yr and a 20 month old... I've done the house sitter, the registered with the state home daycare, the "Name Brand" daycare... and I will be totally honest with you, I am truley grateful, and lucky to have found Nurturing Hearts. Last year alone I had to travel for work and i was out for a week here and there and then when i had to leave my kids for 2 weeks I didnt think I would be able to last, but the Daycare kept me up to date on the kids daily activities, I was able to see them online with their Cameras that they have in there rooms, I was able to speak with them!!! It really made me feel SO MUCH BETTER. This is privately owned, the owner, the teachers and the director Mrs Nina, are so awesome I cant say enough good things about them!! Thank you Nurturing Hearts for all that you do
My child has been attending this Country Home for over a year. In general I am satisfied with the care. Some teachers are better than others just as it is everywhere. The outside playgrounds are nice and roomy, however you can hardly see children there due to the weather being either too hot or too cold. I do not see how sunny bright 60F can be too cold, but it certainly makes it complicated for teachers to dress and undress kids. I see it is easier to turn on a movie for kids instead or just play inside. Nevertheless I like the indoor playgrounds. They help a lot since the time outside is limited to low minimum for healthy active children. The menu is OK, the portions are unlimited until child is full. Another thing I would change is the movie time for kids. It seems that for the money we pay the child could have a human interaction with teachers instead of watching non-educational cartoons for 30 minutes straight in a dark room.
This daycare is every parents dream. I love the daycare and we consider Saria an extension of our family. She cares for the children like they are her own, very professional, clean, educational, loving and nurturing. I never have to worry about what my children are doing or eating when they are in her care. She keeps the kids on a schedule, teaches them good manners, keeps them clean, feeds them healthy meals and snacks, and teaches them age appropriate educational material. I am a nurse and have seen some terrible things in my days, and so when I first had to leave my two little ones at a daycare, I was very scared to say the least. After the first week at Garden of Love daycare, all of my fears were taken away, I built a trusting relationship with the daycare staff. I never have to worry about the care my children are getting. I am blessed to have found Saria and Garden of love.
From the moment I walked into this center I was amazed! The staff greeted me with a smile and the Director was very informative. She spent over an hour with me showing me the facility, curriculum, playground, etc. She asked lots of questions about my child and then she allowed me to observe in not only the class that would be my child's but also the other classes to show me how the program works from class to class. This was one of the most professional, educational and peaceful centers I have ever been in. The staff's conduct was evidence that they really care about the children. I was extremely impressed with this center and would recommend it to not only my friends, but to my family as well. The monthly fee is very comparable to the other centers I looked at, however, for the money there is no comparison. My child is now attending Legacy!
