Dogwood Hills Academy Reviews
Dogwood Hills is AWESOME
Our son has attended Dogwood Hills Academy over a year, beginning at age 1. As a parent, sending your child to daycare is one of the most difficult decisions you can make and after quite a bit of research and touring, we chose DHA. In the beginning, safety, cleanliness and love were the top priorities as we began our search. Dogwood Hills gets 5 stars in all of these areas.
When you walk into Dogwood Hills the air is fresh and clean (which is unusual for a building FULL of kids.) The security system has always worked, there is always someone at the front to greet you and they are on a first name basis with all of the parents AND children. The equipment in and outside of the rooms is top notch. Everything looks and feels clean and secure and the staff is ALWAYS warm and friendly. As we walk the halls to class, teachers from other classes always stop to say hello, which adds to the atmosphere that makes DHA what it is.
As my son has progressed through the classrooms, we have found quite a bit of activity and learning. He comes home with artwork and activities and always has something new to share. The active calendar of DHA always keeps the children busy and engaged. The activities are ALWAYS fun and creative, adding to the overall experience.
While most children dread going to school and being left...my son LOVES going, playing with friends and ALWAYS has a smile on his face when he leaves. Most importantly, I feel comfortable leaving him, knowing that he will be safe and cared for while I'm working. Having this confidence in your childcare provider is CRITICAL. I would absolutely recommend DHA to anyone who asks me.
I have 2 children in Dogwood Hills Academy and we love it here!! We are always greeted by a smiling staff member who is genuinely happy to see my children. I know both of my children are in great hands and would recommend this school to anyone looking.
My son went to Dogwood Hills starting in 2007 and continued through PreK in 2010. They gave him a solid foundation for elementary school. When we were ready for our second child to go to preschool we visited some other locations closer to home. That is when we realized the different experience Dogwood Hills offers. No complaints from my family and we have been using them for over 5 years.
Nurturing environment that promotes learning!
After a very negative experience elsewhere and the feeling that our child was never going to adjust to daycare, we decided to give Dogwood Hills a try.
Thank goodness we did! Not only is the ENTIRE staff nurturing and patient, they offer a well-organized and dynamic curriculum that keeps even the most "spirited" little ones busy and happy throughout the day. Our three-year-old is writing her name and starting to sound out words! Dogwood offers a warm environment where children feel safe and loved, making it easy for them to relax, make friends, have fun and LEARN!!! In addition, if you happen to have a more stubborn child (like ours) who is having a tough time adjusting to life at daycare, they are SO patient and really work with the parents to develop strategies to help the child make the transition comfortably.
As a current educator, I am more than pleased with Dogwood Hills in every aspect. I have 3 children who currently attend and have attended since they were babies. Dogwood Hills has provided my children with a safe, nurturing, and educational environment. My 3 year olds have learned so much at DHA. They are being WELL prepared for Pre-K and Kindergarten. DHA is not just a daycare, it has been an educational foundation for my children.
I have two kids that attend dogwood hills academy and they both love it! I did a lot of research prior to sending my kids here and I could not imagine them anywhere else! They both love their teachers and we feel the teachers really care about our kids! They have definitely learned a lot and they have lots of fun too! Would def recomend this school!!
Great Pre-K program!
My daughter attends Dogwood Hills Academy and is in Pre-K. She absolutely LOVES going to school every morning! I am very impressed with the school, faculty and staff. My daughter is learning so much while have lots of fun!
