We moved to the area 11 years ago without children and without knowledge about daycare options. When we became parents, I surveyed all of my colleagues on where they sent their kids. The overwhelming and extremely clear choice was to send them to Imagination Station. I heard stories from other places ranging from sanitary concerns to concerns for the attention at other locations, but heard nothing but praise for Imagination Station. Three kids and nine years later we have felt like a part of the IMS family. The team is professional, well organized and the teachers truly care for the children and are so dedicated. I have even seen teachers leave and come back because this center is well run. To my knowledge they are the only school in the area that is NAECY accredited. The only complaint is I wish it were Montessori based as that is where our older children are now (in Montessori programs). They do implement some Montessori philosophy though which is great.

My children have attended Imagination Station for the last 7 years, starting in the infant room and are now in the before and after school program. The care and education they have received there has been wonderful, and my kids were more than prepared for Kindergarten. The staff and teachers are friendly and welcoming! It's a clean environment, up to date on their policies, and put the care of the children first and foremost! The management there are always willing to work with families and the children with any issues! I would never take my children anywhere else!
We thought this would be a great school.....It looks fantastic from the road. Sadly, I think we learned a valuable lesson before it was too late. We completed a tour and registered our daughter for 2 full days a week. We completed the registration paperwork and provided a deposit as requested. Mysteriously, our deposit was never cashed even though we were promised a spot for our daughter 8 weeks before her start date. When I called 3 weeks before her start date to inquire if we needed anything else, we were informed the class was full. Either they are extremely disorganized or we were bumped for a full time student. Lesson learned, we have since moved on to a more organized school that lives up to it's promises.
