I have had a great experience with this school It is a smaller school with teachers who are very genuine and caring. They get really good meals and my son is very happy here!

If there was a zero star option I would have used that one. DO NOT take your kids here. My daughter came home telling me horror stories she's young and said things that she would have had to seen or heard to even know what it was. They do have cameras but the whole time we've been there they've "been fixing them and adding more" this was the worst experience for our first day care. All the kids all genders all ages use the bathroom together. Not only that but the 2 owners are extremely rude and mean to their employees there are only 2 employees there that are nice and hands on with the kids. The place smellast like pee. Its mostly Hispanic kids and my daughter would tell me the kids are mean to her mean there's no adult guidance to the children to all be nice to each other. Not only that but the worst thing of all my daughters first day there she came home saying "I'm nicki minaj" I don't know where she got that from but my daughter is mixed. This is definitely not a place you want your children to go!

The kids all share one restroom, 4 year olds- up to 12yo [male and female alike - one restroom (3 toilets right next to each other(plus one plastic potty training thing between them), no stalls.]  Males and females are not separated at all during intimate restroom times.

This is by far the best school my daughter has been too. I have had her in 3 schools total and I plan to keep my little one her until she starts school. Ms. Janelle, is the most fantastic teacher!!!! Everyday, she makes it a point to not only greet me (parents) but she gets down to eye level and greets the children. She does the same at the end of the day. I think they are one of, if not the only, reasonably priced self pay day school. I have nothing but good words for them!! I love that my daughter gets excited to go to school in the morning.

I absolutely love this daycare! I was nervous at first like any parent, but have found myself sad to when we had to take my daughter out. The teachers are able to provide the one on one attention that young kids want. When my daugther started there, she was hardly talking and now we cannot get her to stop. To our surprise she she has now learned quite a bit of spanish, while we only speak english. All of the teachers are so nice. It felt like an at home daycare with how personable everyone is, but your child benefits from having the social interaction of other kiddos.
This center also has cameras set up, so you can peak in and see what your little one is doing throughout the day. I have recommended this place this everyone I know and will continue to do so. -- I wish I could move this center with us.

La Escuelita is a great daycare center. My kids are always happy to stay there and come home happy. My 3 yr old never complaints abut mean kids like she did at another school. They always come with projects they worked on, even my 1 yr old comes home with projects. Teachers are great, loving and caring and helpful.
