01/01/2017Little Shoes Learning Center
I have had my children at Little Shoes Learning Center for over three years. I have never had a problem with the teachers/staff. The facility is always clean, welcoming, professional and it has a home-environment feel. There is always communication between the center and home. Children are sent home with daily sheets which report diaper changes/bathroom usage-for potty training, daily activities (what is being taught-letter C, Number 9 etc.), items of need (extra clothes, diapers, etc.). Additionally, parents can follow along on the Center's private Facebook page, where pictures of your children can be viewed (permission from parents is obtained prior to pictures being posted). There are 3 large storm shelters- this is a necessity in Moore, OK. The children are always engaged in activities at every age. Infants finger paint and bring home adorable parent keepsakes. Older kids work on letters, numbers, colors and skills needed for preschool. All children are learning various skills while playing and the children are introduced to different languages.To respond to a previous post, my children have come home with bites, scrapes, bruises from falls, etc. but each incident was documented and I was informed each time and given complete information on what happened. There has been times where the teacher on-duty did not have all of the information I was asking for but I was able to get in contact with the teacher that was on-duty to get the answers I requested. Video cameras do show each of the rooms so that incidents can be reviewed if necessary. Kids are going to be kids; part of growing, learning, and playing involves getting a few unavoidable bumps here and there. The teachers are not neglectful and they do care for the children they are watching.Little Shoes Learning Center is my children's home away from home. They are comfortable, learning, socializing, and being cared for by loving people. I go out of my way to take my girls to this Center- I won't change.
11/06/2013Excel Learning Center & Child Care
Excel Learning Center & Childcare is an exceptional day care facility. As the mother of 3 children that attended the daycare over 10 years ago, I was astonished to hear my daughters who are now 15, 14, and 10 reciting the Excel Creed just the other day and encouraging one another that they can "Do anything they put their minds to...". Excel Learning Center & Childcare set the tone for their education and prepared them well beyond what I would have expected in the pre-school program, propelling my then Kindergarten daughter into an accelerated program and preparing my pre-school daughter beyond all the other pre-schoolers in her class when we relocated to another state. I can't speak enough good things about Excel and I believe their longevity in this business, the staff that consistently works hard to provide the best care for our children and their exceptional program make Excel Learning Center & Childcare the BEST choice for your childcare needs. I thank God for the staff at Excel Learning Center and specifically those teachers and administrators that have made an impact on my children. Ms. Cain, Mrs. Candice, Mrs. Barbara, Ms. Von, and last but not least Mrs. Traylor because without her, Excel Learning Center would never have been able to impact my life and the lives of my children. Hats off to you all!
06/18/2013Village Montessori School
We have found Village Montessori to be an extremely special place that has helped our little girl grow, learn, and thrive. She is a very strong-willed child and can be very challenging, and we know that not every place is a good fit for her, but VM has been the right place. We moved from out of state and enrolled her at age 20 months, and two years later, she is beyond her years in education and is making great progress in all other areas. This is because the director and her teachers have taken the time to get to know her personality and to recognize the best ways to interact with her to embrace her strong-will and use it to help her learn how to be a caring friend and a good and patient student. Her teachers and our family have maintained continual and constructive communication, and we feel like our daughter is supported in the same way at school as she is at home. We can't say enough about VM, and we look forward to sending our next child there when she is old enough.
