My children attended Forest Hills Learning Academy from 2008 to 2013 and I must say we absolutely loved this center. The director, Ms Dawn and the teachers were the friendliest, most caring, and responsible staff I have encountered. My children were ages 2 and 6 months when they started attending FHLA and to this day they remember the staff, their friends and still ask to go back. Any issues I had were immediately and respectfully addressed, and my children were well taken care of and taught a great deal of information for their age group. I have no complaints on the childcare my children received, and I would recommend FHLA to anyone. I checked out many daycare providers In Tampa and once I visited FHLA my decision was made. The center was always clean, the children attending looked happy, and they received cooked meals (not warm processed meals) which I was very pleased with. If we ever move back to Tampa, I would definitely send my children back to Forest Hills.
We used this center approx 2-3 years ago, and we were far from happy with the level of care that was provided. The only saving grace was my oldest child's teacher, Ms. Shieka who was AMAZING. My youngest, who was only a few months old had to go into childcare when I had to return to work and she was consistently left in her car seat in the morning without supervision while the director cooked breakfast and kids of all ages had access to her. They allowed severely I'll children to attend, and I still to this day believe my youngest contracted RSV from that center. The afternoon "teachers" in my oldest's class were always on their cell phones, allowing the kids to watch movies/tv on a daily basis. I felt horribly uncomfortable and as soon as I could I got both my kids out of there. Even though my instinct told me no, I was in a pinch and needed a childcare center after moving to Tampa so I enrolled them. My kids were later put into a better preschool and it was like night and day.

My family started using FHLA when my first child was only 15mo old. And when we had twin girls in '09 it was only natural for us to put them in the same daycare. Since I had to return to work so quickly after their birth my twins have been with Dawn (owner) and here staff since they were only 3mos old and they are now 3 1/2 and my son (6yrs old) still goes their after school. All of my children are above the standards academically as the staff have been laying an educational foundation since they were very small. The staff treats all the kids like their own and they have always worked with our family to meet our needs. We would recommend FHLA to any family looking for a daycare that treats their child like family!!

My son has been going here for almost a year. The teachers there have helped him academically and helped him come out of his shell. There is agreat communication between the teacher and I. The place is always clean inside and out. My son is happy so it makes me happy.
