I give this 4 stars for the time being because our son won't start until the first of next week, but we went for a walk through today to get our bearings and get him familiar with a new place and we liked everything that we saw. We went at lunch time and the groups were all very well mannered and the noise level was not bad at all (as is in most large facilities). The teachers were all very attentive to their groups (I'm hoping that's not because we were walking the facility with the director) and my son's teacher seems like she connects well with the little ones. The director was very easy to communicate with and very personable not to mention well spoken and classy. She brings many years of experience and certifications to the table and from what I have heard through other parents has cleaned up the facility a great deal (poor staffing from previous directors). They are in the process of installing a new security measure in that any parent/guardian that comes into the facility to pick or drop of a child must give a digital fingerprint as well as a 4 number code to get into the front doors. The doors remained locked at all times. There is a mandatory checkin at the front office as well. There are also cameras in all the spaces. We liked everything we saw today from the security measures, to the class sizes, to the amenities and space the facility has and we think our two year old is going to have a fantastic time at his new school.
