We can never express enough how fortunate we are to have Children Central as our daughter’s first school – Every member there, from the warm ladies greeting everyone in the morning to the classroom teachers, to the owners who treat this place as their own baby showed the highest level of caring and integrity. Special thanks to the very involving and responsive owners Kevin and Sharon Port!
We were concerned our daughter couldn’t speak much English when she first joined, but that concern quickly went away as it was almost a magic to not only see her English skills improving noticeably, but more importantly her getting more and more comfortable socially every day. Three months later, she was almost a fluent bilingual speaker! We know there was no magic, it was Miss Q and other teachers’ individualized attention and help that took a long way in our daughter’s development.
If you only expect Children Central to be a place to drop off your kids, you will be quickly (and positively) surprised you are wrong. There are so many well thought-out curriculums, socialization, creative movements and learning opportunities that go well beyond just a child care facility. From music, art, physical development to a third language (for us:)), these well structured opportunities really stimulated our daughter’s early interests in different areas – now she sings songs to us and plays drum set every day and enjoys drawing, dancing and all kinds of sports.
We had to move to another state due to job changes. Our daughter stayed until the very last day we lived in the area, and she missed her teachers and friends so much there. We strongly recommend Children Central to other parents who are looking for a school that’s their kid’s extended family!
