About the Provider

Description: We provide a safe, secure learning environment that lays the foundation for academic achievement. All children require a safe learning environment with controlled boundaries in order to grow, learn, and flourish. We work with a great amount of determination to make this happen. In the planning stages of building this school on this location, it was important that when a child walked through the front door it felt more like a home than a school. That is why we have a living room with a fireplace along with art work that reflects a warm, inviting home. Our goal has been to make a child’s transition from being at home to spending his day in a school as smooth and comfortable as possible. We believe we have accomplished that goal.

We all know, though, that a comfortable house does not provide all the needs of each child’s security. A loving, secure environment is made through a school staff that respects and deeply cares for each child. Our goal is that every staff member knows every students name. It is important to us, and most importantly, to each child to be known and loved as he or she is being educated. There was an alarming UCLA study. Of over 1,000 public schools surveyed, teachers averaged a total of seven minutes daily in personal exchanges with their students. This would allow for no more than one or two personal responses for each student. We can assure you that this is not common place here. Our students know their teacher will care for them and place them in an environment that is safe for them.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

What a sad day it is when teachers will conspire against a 5 year old and actually take away their last day of school by making up a lie. I put up with a teacher, Brittany Sewell, actually yelling at me at times, the owner, Mary, lying to my face, calling me names behind my back and treating my child like a criminal who had come to rob her. This place is run like a prison. The teachers are terrified to do or say anything because it's Mary's way or else. Don't let the first impression fool you. It's a waste of money. Many others left when we did... And I still talk to employees and former employees, it's all a facade! Be very careful. You're better off at a public school than this place.
