04/21/2017Primrose School at Crossroads Park
Updated: April 21, 2017We have been at Primrose since August 2016, and I have nothing but great things to say about this Primrose location! Walk through the doors and you will see what I mean . . . It has an amazing air of excitement.They strive to challenge my daughter in Early Preschool 2 where they get to learn through project based learning. In March, they learned about the life cycle of a butterfly and watched them transform from caterpillars to butterflies. This is not something you find in most curriculum for 2 year olds. Each day my child is excited to be at school and can be found skipping or jumping down the hallway full of unbridled joy. As a parent, this is what I want to see -- a place where my child can be herself and where her personality can shine. As a teacher of 14 years, I can tell you their social and academic curriculum is well thought out and well executed. They strive to meet children where they are at, and challenge them to grow to the next level, understanding that each child moves at his or her own pace. This is truly a school, not a daycare.In addition to the amazing teachers, the team who run the school do a brilliant job communicating with parents. They are kind, loving towards the children, and will always work to meet a child's needs. There is no better place than Primrose School at Crossroads Park.

I cannot say enough good things about this daycare! My child has been at Primrose of Eldridge Parkway for the past 19 months and at the age of 35 months is well beyond her peers of the same age at other day care facilities. Everyone I run into (even at the grocery store!) is amazed at how young she is and how well she communicates with adults (she also knows her shapes, colors (in sign language, English, and Spanish), and her capital letters). All of this and fun too – she runs to her classroom each day and quickly kisses me goodbye so she can start playing with her little friends! These things might seem small to the some but everyone expected my daughter to be behind her peers physically, emotionally and mentally. She spent the first 14 months of her life in an overseas orphanage where she did not have the freedom to walk, only heard a foreign language, and was fed only pureed food. She started at Primrose at 16 months when I had to return to work and the teachers and directors worked with me to help my daughter be all that she is today. Each day I know I drop her off in an environment that she will be loved, she will play with friends, and she will learn about her little world. They have helped her down the path to being anything she will ever want to be in life!

My son has been at Primrose for 14 months. I started him in the Infant room. As a neurotic mom, it was hard for me to tear myself away from him every morning. Luckily, I had Miss Sylvia's room to help me through that difficult transition. They made me feel confident that we are a team raising my son and not just "babysitters". Their attention to detail is amazing. Then we moved to Miss Monica's Infant II room. With her Montessori background, her knowledge seemed bottomless. She helped guide me through some of the difficult older infant behaviors and corrections. Then, finally we are in Miss Tiffany's Toddler class with Miss Crystal and Miss Shanna. I have no idea how these ladies keep up their energy level to create fun the entire day. My son seems excited to get there and sad to leave. His verbal and sign development blows us away. Also, this front office is amazing. I am always greeted with the smiles of Miss Anna and Miss Maria. They keep the place happy and fun, they consistently get smiles from my little guy! Then I have to give a ton of credit to Miss Shelly, she keeps the place running like a well-oiled machine. Thanks Primrose, I know he's in great hands!
11/21/2013Smaller Scholars Montessori Academy, Dairy Ashford
My son was and is a typical toddler. He was a rough , uncoordinated little cave man like most little boys. When I toured Smaller Scholars I was afraid that he was not disciplined enough as a 2 year old boy in comparison to calm mannered children that I saw. I was wrong. He has flourished since we enrollment him there last year and I recommend this school to most parents. I only speak from my experience with my own son. I'm not sure that a Montessori program would be well suited for a child that might need special attention. Again, I speak from my personal experience. Smaller scholars is expensive, but to me and my family, it has been worth every single penny. The teachers are incredible and they have elevated our son and turned a little cave man into a little man who shows respect, love and a better understanding of the world.
We relocated here in September. I myself retired from being a home daycare provider. My 2 yr old daughter is thrilled and very excited to get out of my suv in the morning to go into the center. When I arrive to pick her up, most of the time she doesnt want to leave. I read the reviews below, and those incidents are unfortunate, I can honestly say that I trust Tocarra with my girls, and my youngest daughters teacher India, is very alert and attentive to my daughters needs. As an in home provider I know that sometimes our children can be a bit extensive in their story telling, and as a mom we went to believe our little angels, thank GOD for video coverage. I dont know about anyone else, but Happy Kids makes my daughters HAPPY.

This school has many problems, but i can only name a few here. Their are at least two fights every month.Most of theteachers are all right, excluding one of the drama teachers. He takes no interest in disciplining his classes, and its basically a free period. He picks favorites, to the point that the only way to get into "advanced drama"is to kiss his ***. That's why most of the kids in the so called "advanced" class are bad at acting and have zero creativity. Not that it would matter. Every one of his classes do the same thing every year, to ensure the minimal effort of the teacher. Most of the time he just sits on his phone,tablet,ipad, or computer, sometimes all at the same time. DO NO TAKE DRAMA!!!!!!
They're must have been couple people having a bad hair day. . Honestly I don't know what are this people are crying about. . I have a 10 month old baby and I started bringing him in when he was 2 month old, the director is amazing and the stuff are very good, they have this called a family environment, my baby would always be happy at the end of the day, baby room teachers are very nice, I know for sure my baby is been very taking cared off.. iam thankful for this people.. I do understand that we cannot make every body happy but I tell you one thing, bring your child to westchase academy, for sure your will get the respect, love and kindness from this people.. Thank you all. .
