Calvary Preschool
When looking for a preschool program there were many factors that I considered. Curriculum and costs were the obvious factors but I also was interested in the passion of the teachers, organization of the director, and the caring family environment of the program. I found all that and more at Calvary Preschool. The director Kimberly Case knew all the kids names and greeted them every morning. The teachers not only were interested in my kids but the weekly emails kept me informed as to what they were creating and learning in the classroom. Other factors that led me to choose Calvary was each class attended weekly gym time and monthly chapel time. Calvary quickly became a second home to my 2 and 4 year old.. Class sizes are intimate as my 2 year olds class was 10 kids with 2 teacher and my 4 year olds class was 14 with 2 teachers. The special traditions like a Spaghetti Dinner for Dads and the Mother’s Tea are just a few examples of Calvary creating special family memories. As someone with a Masters in Early Childhood Education, I was picky of the right preschool for my family and Calvary surpasses all expectations. I will forever sing their praises.

Lifting Off Childcare & Learning
As a past employee of this center, (left after I received my teaching certificate) I can honestly tell you this center is a warm and inviting environment. The majority of the employees have worked there 5 years plus, demonstrating it is a great place to work. Additionally, the majority of kids have been there since babies, proving parents love the teachers and service. Never did we ever drive a van when students were not properly buckled and if the owner discovered this were to be true he would have corrected the behavior immediately. Buckling so many times, you get to be experts on the activity and learn to go faster so the kids are not sitting in a hot van!! I loved working there myself, and before having children, I continued to come back as a summer employee. I would suggest to this individual who called the center to ask to speak directly to the owner, and I am most confident he would have been more than happy to have a proper discussion on the matter. Now working on my administrator certification, I have learned how important it is to give administrators proper time to solve problems.

A Turning Point
Their expertise in helping me become clean and sober was miraculous. I never thought that I would have this much fun being a sober. Being a square is far better than getting into trouble. This was my first DUI and it wasnt much fun. Alcohol is not fun, and is an addiction for me. Even a fun dance turned into a calamity. Alcohol is destruction to my body. I finally get the picture. Their is a liqour store on every block so I need to keep my support group phone numbers in case of relapse thoughts. Great job helping me and even better yet excellent job helping and assisting the whole community. Help is available but it takes the individual to open their eyes to the harm and endangerment of alcohol. Im not going to have my life cut in half for any fluids named alcohol. I plan on living a long full life of 100 thanks to my friends at A Turning Point. Its never to late. I enjoyed meeting nice people.

A Turning Point
The time shared with A Turning Point has been most memorable. Temptations are tempting and I cant be tempted. I had group therapy and know that I am vulnerable so I cant leave myself around temptation. It cost me an arm and leg once I get started drinking on top of it being a sin to put alcohol into my temple. For my body is my temple. Good Christian people here to help everyone. Dont miss your chance to turn your life around. It feels good to do the right thing. Im clean for life. I couldnt have done it alone. It helps having support and groups were other people suffer from the same temptations as I. It also helps to know that Im not alone and that there are other people being tempted on a daily basis. Its a daily war for me against evil and the harms of alcohol. Anyone can drink. It takes a bigger person to say NO!!!!!

Little Sprouts Learning Ctr
I wanted to offer a current view of Little Sprouts. Firstly, I have to say my 20 month old loves it there. He's always happy and in a good mood when I pick him up. Sometimes he wants to stay and play in the kid zone room. He was at the Discovery Kids on Delmonico, he was clearly not happy and would even scream when certain staff women would try to touch him, so I put him in the Hope Montessori, which I felt was great. He seemed happy overall, but usually cranky and VERY thirsty and hungry when I would pick him up. I was not happy with their menu, processed, high sugar food, which is why I put him in Little Sprouts. So far so good, for him however I do have to say the admin could use some organization and communication improvement, yet I still feel its the best place place in the area.

I called for an appointment and they got me in right away. I worked the program and it works. Taking every day one day at a time. One hour by hour. Now that I got entangled with addiction its going to be very difficult. I want more from my life than to hide from my life behind a bottle. Im getting my daily goals accomplished and I was happy to find such a good trestment center to help treat my disease. Alcoholism is a cancer. I dont want to be sick anymore. I got all the help I could get. Now its up to me. Ill give a praise report next year and see how I do. Im rooting for myself. They gave me the tools I needed to combat urges. I know I can call for relapse prevention if I ever need it. Best place helping someone like me. Five star company. Thanks.

A Turning Point
For the first time in my life I have enjoyed being sober and lucid. I have found fun things to spend my days doing after work. I never realized that all I need is sobriety. My savings is growing bevause Im not foolishly spending cash on lots of alcohol and weed. Im in love with the owners. They helped me tackle cravings and temptations. Their structured groups and everything helped me. Im glad I went to A Turning Point instead of anywhere else. Great staff well organized and pleasant and happy attitudes helped as well. Friendly and prompt. I got alot more out of counseling than I would have ever thought possible. I highly recommend this place to others that are tired of wasting time and money. The best thing I ever did for myself.

A Turning Point
The best in treatment for domestic violence. A humiliating but learning experience. I had to learn the hard way. I wont allow anyone to control my behavior with simple words. Drinking alcohol makes me vulnerable to arguing with my spouse. I have control of my behavior and staying away from pot and alcohol helps alot. The counseling given at A Turning Point is like no other. My relationship is improving and so am I. My brother used to get violent with me so I am a victim myself and have to remember not to ever fall into a trap. I appreciate everything more and made future goals that are fun to attain. I had fun improving and discussing pros and cons of relationships. Great program for me. Great people. I learned alot.

I dont know why it states im a recovered addict. Never used dope. Have smoked pot and drank before. The first review on this website needs corrected. Hate people that use felony dope. I was falsely accused of using and that makes me want to fight the good fight against it. Great owners dedicating their time to the needs of our community helping others. They can help anybody despite their history with alcohol, dope, or domestic violence. Beautiful family owned company set out to help humanity in all our downfalls and shortcomings. Clean facilities with professional staff. The best since 1995. Each staff member holds a place in my heart. I love A Turning Point and triple love the owners.

Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
