I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. My daughter was three years old when she started and she was there less than a year before I put her somewhere else. There is absolutely no consistency at this center from the curriculum to the staff. In less than a year there were 3 directors and my daughter had about 4 different lead teachers. The last lead teacher being fresh out of high school with no teaching experience. My daughter never really felt comfortable because the turn over was so high. The only person that my daughter felt close to and that was always there was Ms. Keisha who was absolutely wonderful. Every once in a while they would send out a calendar of events but they would eventually steer away from the schedule. Sometimes they would send out a weekly homework packet but even that died quickly. Whenever I would pick my daughter up they were either running around playing with no engagement from the staff or they were in circle time singing the very same songs, day after day. When my daughter was having a difficult time with potty training. When she would have accidents she was never properly cleaned and still had feces on her. Once the school had to close early because the state shut them down because there flooring was not up to code. This is a matter of public record.

My daughter is in a wonderful facility now. They have a monthly schedule that they stick to with weekly themes. My daughter comes home every day talking about something new that she learned. The teachers are engaging and they are there to teach. They are organized and structured. There is no doubt in my mind that when its time for her to start school she will be ready. I cant say the same about Little Stars!!!
