The below review surprised me because we have both of our children enrolled at Circle of Friends and I wouldn't take them anywhere else and consistently recommend them to our friends with kids. Our toddler has been here since he was 6 months old and our eight year old participates in the summer break program that consists of a field trip every day.This is a family run facility and they treat every one of the children like they are their own. They have essentially zero turnover in their staff which is reassuring to us as parents, our children go to school and see a familiar face everyday. Based on our children's reactions to Circle of Friends, our toddler bounding in daily to see his favorite teachers and our eight year old begging to go summer camp instead of staying home with mom, we know that they receive the emotional nurturing that makes us comfortable and they come home with the personal growth and development to back up that the curriculum used in the school is benefitting both of our boys.If you're looking for a family run learning center where your child will excel, both emotionally and educationally, I would recommend Circle of Friends.

I've been reading the past reviews on this place and I am in shock!! I cannot believe people would have things this bad to say about CSCC! I've been taking my 3 children there (ages 1-10) for two years now and I cannot be more satisfied with the facility. Always clean, children are always attended to, communication is always amazing and I couldn't imagine a better atmosphere for my children to be in. Anytime there is an issue (and with children that is a given), Leanne prefers to handle them personally and even if she's not around the situation is still handled amazingly! I have referred my friends/neighbors/co-workers to this daycare and two have them have enrolled their children- they are happy with the facility as well!Thank you CSCC, for all you do for our family. We're not just clients to you, and you're not just a place I drop my children off to, you're more like an extended family and do a great job helping my husband and I raise our children.
As the mom of a 4 year old and a 2 year old, I cannot speak highly enough of Caughlin Preschool. I worked at a Child Development Center for several years during college and when I had my first child and needed to find a caring and nurturing environment for her, I did some very thorough research, interviews and tours of popular schools in the Reno area. Choosing a pre-school is a very personal choice. What I personally liked the most about Caughlin Preschool when I first visited was the staff (Myra was my first contact). The staff is happy, they genuinely love children, they like each other (rare in any workplace!), they are intelligent, responsible and they communicate with respect to the children and parents. On top of it all, Caughlin is clean, my children are actually learning their letters, numbers, science, computers, etc., the other kids are friendly and, most importantly, my children come home happy.

I absolutely LOVE this center! Not only is the staff knowlegable, and friendly, they a incredibly passionate about their jobs and the children that are in their care. My youngest son is about to turn one and he has grown leaps and bounds since he's been attending Sweet Dreams. He's already walking and trying to say things like "all done", "hello", and "bye bye". The Director April is totally devoted to the center and Every child in it, its not all about making money to her its about the children's happiness, safety, and education. My 3 year old also attends and he absolutely loves his teachers. I woild recommend this center to everyone I know, because not only are the hours flexable its employees show love and compassion for their job, and the kids who attend are well cared for and extremely loved.
I highly recommend this daycare. I had my daughter go to two other daycares. She cried every morning. I felt awful. Then she started Circle of Friends, and she loved it. She did not cry, and she was excited to go. She would even ask to go on days she didn't have to. She is 4, so her teacher was Ms Mona. Ms. Mona does the most creative projects with the children, and she ties in education. The two ladies who own the daycare are great. When I picked my daughter up in the afternoons, both of these ladies would be involved with the children doing homework, puzzles, or just playing toys. My only complaint is having to take my daughter out because of quitting my job. Sarah H
