I have mixed reviews. The teachers were super kind to my child. However, just like the other reviews, the director is very rude, unkind, and running people out of there. She is a tyrant to her staff and treats the parents of the children horrible. I worry how she treats the children when no one is watching her. There is a difference between running a tight ship and just being a nasty person. Ive heard the owner is Canadian, however I never saw anyone else that looked like they were in charge. The teachers care about the students, the place is clean, its well priced, and its safe. I question why the owners are not more hands on or why they don't read these reviews and look into Beryl Johnson. I have seen her be so rude to state workers, parents, children, and of course myself. Teachers leave due to her nasty attitude and now so have we. ** OWNER, do yourself a favor and fire her, then your day care will fill up and you'll make more $$ and have a happier staff! **
Our son's experience at Little Palms has been absolutely wonderful and has exceeded our expectations. He started when he turned 18 months and has been attending part time for the past 8 months. We have seen great growth and development in several areas: social interaction, motor-skills, counting, letters / alphabet, sharing, problem-solving skills, etc. the staff are fantastic individuals who truly care about each child's growth and development. They are kind, thoughtful and highly engaged. I never once saw them simply sitting around and taking a break. They are always interacting with the children and helping them in their specific areas of development. We cannot recommend Smart Steps enough. It is a wonderful school that truly cares about the growth and well-being of its children.
I am very lucky and fortunate enough to have stumbled upon this little gem of a school. I am very impressed by the level of independence, character, and personality the students have. I only hope that others will get the chance to experience the same. These Sudbury schools should be every where! They are for those that value freedom, responsibility, trust and integrity! Its a real dynamic community with all the good, bad, and so growing potential, just like in the REAL world. In other schools you don't get even a taste of the REAL world until you 18 years old. That is a shame. So check out the school and do research on the Sudbury Model.

I took the 1 month course from April to May and it was the best thing I did. The class was amazing and that's not because of the free donuts and coffee everyday lol. It was all hands on, before SFAAC I had no clue about working on A/C, coolers, Ice machines, heat pumps etc. But right after the class I was even able to tell a friend what was wrong with his a/c at home over the phone based on what he told me. By the way I fixed it for him and yes I charged him. I got my Universal certification and started working 5 days after completing the school. Thanks Bob and Steve. Mashell H, May 2014.
