Parents Talk

 

As a parent, we know how difficult it can be to choose the right school for your child. We developed this page to help make that decision a little easier. See what other parents have to say about Little Scholars Academy!

 

James and Emily

  • “My wife and I have our daughter enrolled at Little Scholars Academy and could not be happier with the quality of this preschool!  The teachers are excellent and the atmosphere is very supportive, safe and loving.  We particularly appreciate the creativity fostered by the curriculum, the emphasis on cooperative play and mutual respect, and the gentleness in how the staff care for the children. We would not want her anywhere else!”

Scott and Heather

  • “Our experience with Little Scholars Academy has been nothing short of fantastic. We could not be more pleased with our daughter’s experience and progress. It is very evident that she has benefitted greatly from the attention she receives on a daily basis. Her growth both academically and socially has been incredible. We believe the small child to staff ratio and overall culture of the school is what leads to such an amazing experience for our daughter. She has developed many friends with peers and teachers alike throughout her time there. We would recommend Little Scholars Academy to any family without reservation.”

Sally and Dave

  • “Our daughterAvant-garde attends Little Scholars Academy. We have been very pleased with the care and attention provided by the staff.  What we have appreciated most, are the staff/teachers at Little Scholars.  They are great individuals who demonstrate an ability to both love your child and provide a structured and safe environment for them.  There is a focus on communication, appropriate discipline and teaching, which we have really appreciated.  We also appreciate that their care is offered in a home like environment as opposed to a center.  We have and will continue to recommend Little Scholars Academy to other families needing care outside of their home.”

Rachael and Tim

  • “We are constantly amazed and pleasantly surprised by the new skills that our daughter demonstrates as a result of her preschool lessons. The activities are fun (field trips, backyard activities, and afternoon dance parties) and educational (learning food groups, animals and their environments, storybook time). We’ve watched our daughter advance her communication skills, learn to engage positively with others, and grow her little personality with the help of the wonderful caregivers at Little Scholars Academy.”

  • “It is with great pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation for Little Scholars Academy. It has been a wonderful school for both of our children.

    Your program provides the perfect balance between preparing kids for kindergarten and allowing them to enjoy just being a kid. The individual attention that your staff shows each child creates an environment where each child thrives. The dedication you have to provide a safe, clean, warm and inviting home for your kids gives parents like us peace of mind knowing that our children are being well cared for. One thing we love is that you’ve created a family atmosphere that has always made our kids feel “at home” when they are away from home.

    Another thing that really makes Little Scholars Academy truly one of a kind is the people. The caregivers are genuinely some of the most wonderful people we know. They are gentle, kind, respectful and fun. The love and care they have shown our children over the years and what that has meant to us is beyond what we can describe in words. We never could have imagined we would have found that extra special touch in a preschool. “

    Thanks for all you do,

    Amy and Mario

  • “We are more than pleased to offer a recommendation for Little Scholars Academy. We could not ask for a better preschool/child care solution! Our son Ian has been enrolled for quite sometime and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him at this school. Our experience has been stellar – from the initial meeting where we not only learned about the school but they sought to learn about us, to the everyday activities that we see our son so enjoy. The teachers here care deeply about our child and are consummate professionals who are treated as such. Everything about the preschool works so flawlessly: We have a good sense of what our son experiences every day, he gets a consistent schedule and our entire household runs more smoothly because we are so comfortable knowing that his experience at school that day will be fun, enriching, safe, and valuable! And, even from a practical perspective, it’s worth noting the importance of the healthy food they serve and support, the great locations, the monthly photographs and daily reports, the focus on safety and security, etc. I cannot think of one thing that I’d like to be considered/provided that isn’t already well in hand! And, speaking of location – even though there are multiple sites – and one close to our home, I would drive across town and into another county to have this preschool experience – there is no one else I would trust to do the same great job.

    We feel incredibly fortunate to have found Little Scholars Academy.”
    Best regards,

    Eric, Kirsten & Ian

 

Thea and Chris

  • “Is it with great pleasure to write this letter to share our wonderful experiences with Little Scholars Academy.

    Jackson arrived to Little Scholars Academy in the spring of 2010.  Jackson was more than ready to move up to join the “big kids”; as his mom I was both thrilled and nervous at the thought of moving to a new house.  The nerves went away the minute we walked through the doors.  Little Scholars Academy is lively, interactive and the staff is amazing, as they are at all of the houses.

    Jackson has been there for a little over a year, and it never ceases to amaze me what the teachers provide for him.  He gets to learn new things each and every day, socially interact with other children his age, but most of all –  play and craft his imagination as every child should.  We love the variety of things the teachers introduce to them each week, the “show and tell” days, the variety of arts and crafts, science experiments and the love of reading and books.  I have watched Jackson flourish in this environment.

    These ladies are not just teachers, they are family.  They have loved and nurtured my child to be the amazing individual he is.  It is evident each day I pick him up how much he is loved by these incredible women.  I am truly grateful to Bell and to Little Scholars Academy for this.  Every child should have this blessing in their lives.”

    Sincerely,

    Thea and Chris

 

Lisa and Andy

  • “We wholeheartedly recommend Little Scholars Academy to any parent searching for a preschool. Our daughter’s teachers are attentive and caring, and do a great job of keeping us informed with daily updates. They have been very accommodating of her alternate diet arrangements as well. Our daughter acts like she’s in her second home when she’s there. We couldn’t have asked for a better preschool environment for such a critical period in her development. She is always learning something new, and is excited to tell us about her projects and what she learned at the end of the day. The daily schedule strikes the perfect balance between learning and fun, keeping her engaged and happy. Her social skills have been greatly enhanced by being able to interact with other kids her age. We feel very fortunate to be part of the Little Scholars family and will definitely be enrolling our younger daughter there as well when she is old enough.”

Tami and Brian

  • We would like to express our appreciation for the wonderful care and love you have shown our daughter, Kalila at Little Scholars Academy. Finding someone you trust to take care of your child is the hardest thing a parent can do, but you continue to put our mind at ease. We have found that Little Scholars is the best place for Kalila. She continues to flourish under your guidance. We appreciate that Little Scholars Academy has adjusted to the growth and development of each child by letting them proceed at their own pace, while still encouraging them to meet their own individual potential.

    We also appreciate the open communication that we have with you. Little Scholars Academy is both a professional and caring atmosphere that we are pleased to recommend.

    Sincerely,

    Tami and Brian

 

Shannon and Scott

  • “Are you looking for a Pre-School/Kindergarten where you child is surrounded by loving teachers and wonderful happy kids with involved families? Maybe you would like to give your child opportunities for exploration, a creative variety of activities for stimulation, personal and group classroom time, and a focus on social graces and development? Little Scholars Academy is all this and more. LSA is a very special school where the kids feel like one big family. They look forward to being with their buddies and teachers every day, and are excelling academically and socially beyond expectations of their ages.

    The teacher provides an outstanding school program based on sincere interest for education, social development and happiness of the kids in their care.”

    Sincerely,

    Shannon and Scott

 

Jen and Jarvis

  • “We have had two children in Little Scholars’s programs over the course of the last three years, one just starting the preschool program and one recently “graduated” to the older child’s school.  Our Little Scholars student comes home with the cutest and most interesting projects, she is truly challenged and learning more every day, and best of all, at the end of the day she is tired.  We feel lucky to have found this program!

    The care in all of Little Scholars’s programs is incomparable, and believe me, I have looked.  We are very grateful to all of the staff in the different programs for the tangible and positive effect they have had on our two children.  It truly takes a village to raise a child and we have never regretted including Little Scholars as part of our family.”

  • “Heidi attended the younger kid Little Scholars Academy preschool from July 2010 to July 2011. Here she continued to receive the love and respect that we had come to expect from Bell and her staff. The atmosphere at the younger kid Little Scholars Academy preschool is one that fosters independence. Heidi learned to fasten her own shoes and coat as well as put on her own hat and gloves. She also continued to learn to take turns and share. In addition, Miss Drew and Miss Jackie made each day fun and exciting so the kids love to learn.

     

    Bell and her staff recognize that children learn and develop at different rates and work with each child individually to ensure that they learn the necessary skills to enter kindergarten. An added benefit is that there is no “potty-training” prerequisite for the Little Scholars Academy. It is great that Heidi is not held back academically because she is not yet completely potty-trained. Already at the age of 3½  Heidi is able to count to 20, identifies a majority of her ABCs out of order as well as write a couple of them. We are looking forward to what is to come as Heidi continues at the big kid Little Scholars Academy pre-k.

     

    It makes it easier for us to go to work each day knowing that Heidi is in such a fun and loving learning environment.  We can’t think of a better place for Heidi to spend her day and it is our pleasure to recommend the Little Scholars Academy.”
