WONDERFUL DAYCARE/PRESCHOOL!My daughter is now 2 years old and has always been looking forward to going to this school each day since she was 6 months old! She practically jumps into their arms when she arrives there. All the teachers and director love and nurture the children. The school has been there for a very long time. My daughter was very excited since day one when she was only a few months old there. She seems to continually flourish, learning new things from playing in doors and out doors with the children. There is constant supervision by very nice care givers. They send a small report home each day to show what activities they participated in which increases with age, how much they ate, when the diaper was changed, etc!I am an engineer for the city of LA, and I'm very careful about where to send my baby these days, and this place gives me full peace of mind as I go to work each day! They are easy to talk to, always answers their phones, and will work with your schedule reasonably. I have checked out other day cares within half hr radius, and I would highly recommend this school. Teachers' attitude/personality towards parents & children are very important. This school respects you and loves children like their own. Consistently professional, kind, patient, nurturing, sweet, caring, and responsible; never neglectful! I wanted to keep my baby at home before sending her to a daycare, but I believe that she should learn and socialize with children her age as soon as possible. I could not keep her home until she's 4 yrs old. She would get restless, bored, upset,... After just attending a month, she is happier, more confident, curious, speaking, and walking. :) I'm looking forward to more as she goes thru the program and mingling there. Oh, I also very much appreciate the security they have at the entrance door, so no stranger can enter!Thank You everyone there!
My child was enrolled at Leap & Bound on Hawthorne Blvd for about three months and our experience there was so poor that we withdrew him from the school immediately. We enjoyed our tour of the PV Blvd location so was excited about our child starting at the Torrance Blvd location. Unfortunately I would not recommend this school to anyone due to the following reasons 1) Highly disorganized- took almost two months to get an ID code to enter the door 2) High Teacher turnover- my child had three teachers in the span of three months 3) Not as clean as preferred- My child was sick every two weeks when he attended this school. It also seemed like the times I went to pick him up from school, there was a dirty diaper on the floor or kids looking for help on the potty or soap to wash their hands. 4) Not enough teachers/staff- In my opinion, there were way too many children and only one teacher per class (in the class my child was in, there were about 11 kids and only 1 teacher). A staff member complained to me that there weren't enough adults to watch the kids so that everyone could take a break-- seems like a big issue for everyone. 5) Multiple incident reports were sent home when my child came home school with bruises and scratches.
Not recommendable whatsoever ! I would recommend any parent with kids attending that place to go and spend time there and see what's really going down. That place is a nightmare.
