Robindell Private School
My daughter attended this school for almost three years. In that time period, she had a couple of amazing teachers and a few that were not so great. You can tell which teachers really care about their students and you can definitely tell which ones are just there for a paycheck. Some of them are quick to yell at the kids in a harsh tone and say rude things, and I've seen a teacher drag a child on the ground into the hallway by the arm. The front desk lady at the Kindergarten building (Mrs. Karen) is very sweet and helpful even though she is always super busy. I would say the shining star at this school is Mrs. Chapelle (sp?) She was my daughter's Pre-K teacher and is one of the most involved and nurturing teachers I've seen. She genuinely cared about my daughter and made her feel comfortable. You can tell she really cares about all the kids there. My daughter's Kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Cole and she is a great teacher. My daughter learned so much and is well past where she should be as a First Grader thanks to her. The school is pretty nice and large but it is in a bad neighborhood and if you leave anything valuable in your car it is likely to not be there when you come back out. I would recommend this school if you have a weird schedule since it is 24 hours, but if you can afford a school in a better area, I would do it. All in all I gave the school a 3 because they are pretty much equal in good/bad qualities.

Montessoi School of Dow
I am a first time mom and when looking at my childs care options in the area, I was not really pleased with any of them. I found the MSOD and was impressed. I enrolled my daughter and she loved it! This is an environment where she thrived and loved going to school. The teachers were interactive and the facility was very nice. I dont know why it got so many negative reviews. No, you are not allowed to go into the class rooms because they dont allow anyone in the class rooms other than the teachers for security/ sanitary reasons. But you have a huge bay window to view your child through and watch their class. I never had any issues with how she was treated or things she was learning. She did get sick very often but it was her first time in child care and she did not build up her immune system. The school sends out weekly newsletters, pictures and has family nights scheduled at local restaurants. It is run like a school and your child will learn. Not every family is built for the montessori requirement, others might feel better having their child in a day care facility. I wanted my daughter to learn and benefit from being in child care, so this was the perfect facility for us. The only reason why she is at a new facility is because we moved accross town. We both deffidently miss MSOD!

Sharpstown Daycare
My 2 year old started in November 2013I LOVE THIS PLACE !! the area it self is not the BEST. but my child learned his FULL ABC's in 2 weeks. he loves the ladies. They are very loving. my kid will run and hug them before he leaves and hugs them when we get there. in other daycares he would cry and yell not to stay, and here he is always happy and excited. I only work like 4 minutes down so I go after his nap and take him to have lunch with me. And he is always excited to get back. I am very pleased with this place. One down side about it is that when kids are really sick, they still take them in. And my kid has gotten sick due to other sick babies. but I understand some parents don't have a choice. I would prefer them not take the sick babies in until a few days and with medication but oh well. other than that I really like the environment.

Grandma's House Child Care Center
I took my daughter to Grandmas' house at 11 weeks old. Ms. Dely and Ms. Ava were great to work with and made me feel comfortable with leaving my first child for the first time. I could tell they enjoyed what they did. My daughter came home happy every day and all of her basic needs were taken care of. I found the day care is very affordable and easy to work with. My daughter spent about 6 weeks here as we waited for the day care of our choice to become available. I would have liked to see my daughter spend less time in the swings and more time practicing tummy time or supported sitting/laying with a boppy. Overall I liked Grandma's house and appreciated the time they took care of my daughter.

Woodforest Academy
My 3 year old son had behavior problems at his previous school. I admit sometimes he's tough to deal with, but the teachers at his previous school were just too rough and not sweet at all. We found Woodforest and the change is noticeably and incredible. He's behaving very well and is every day excited about going to school. His teacher is very sweet and understanding. They have an excellent classroom and the playground looks like a park. He gets home every day so tired because not only they get to go to the playground twice a day, but he also gets to take fitness class every day. Also, they teach Spanish every day and know how to deal very well with difficult kids. Definitely recommend this school.

Robindell Private School
I am a nurse and have been using Robindell now for almost 3 years, both daytime and evening hours, with my changing schedule. I have 3 children and have been very satisfied with this school. Mr. Chuck and his entire staff have never been anything but nice and helpful. My kids have learned so much over the past three years. When I read some of the reviews it really makes me wonder the real reason these people left this center as I have watched things closely and have had no problems with the care, cleanliness, food or staff of this school. I highly recommend this school.

America’s Choice Children’s Center
Americas Choice Childcare on Bissonnet and Kirkwood is just wonderful. The staff there is attentive to my son and me. I feel very lucky to have found this daycare and my son actually looks forward to going and seeing his friends and teacher! Unfortunately we are moving to another city and will have to find a new daycare center. We are going to miss this place!!

Apple Of My Eye Academy
My children have been attending Apple of my Eye for years! my little one has not been so easy to deal with since he is a very hyper little boy but the staff and Directors have been wonderful with him and his siblings. The location is always clean, well taken care of and I feel my children are well taken care of every second.

Mommy's Time Out
Love this place! The staff is very attentive and my kids beg to go. No hard drop off or pick up time makes it great when you're going somewhere and you're just not sure how long it will take. It's also easy to get in and out of. The parking lot isn't crowded and it's just off of I-10.

Robindell Private School
My son has learned his colors and shapes and I see him progressing each month. We have been there for about 6 months now and can not think of anything negative to say which in the childcare industry says something in my opinion.

Just a moment...
