Elements Of Learning Reviews
AMAZING center in each and every way! Elements of Learning are professional, caring, supportive and loving. The teachers create work based on my child's learning style and send homework for us to practice her weakness. The staff takes time to speak to you on the trails and tribulations of the day, everyday. They tell you the truth and hide nothing from you. Good days as well as not so good days are discussed with the parents. That is what you want as a parent. They gave me advise on how to handle situations at home so that my husband and I can work together to help my daughter.
The owner is one in a million. She is always there. She know every child inside and out. She teaches there as well. That is one of the things that I liked the most.
Fancy schools look great with expensive items and commercial teaching programs which the parents end up paying for. But this school has a clean, homelike feel that is full of love, care, safety, top notch learning for an unbeatable tuition price.
Check it out, you won't be disappointed.
not great school
At first I absolutely loved this school and working there. Then, true colors came out once they were comfortable for me and I would never in a million years go back there or ever send my child there. I do not agree with the way the children are disciplined. They are never ever hurt, they just aren't properly redirected by these teachers. The teachers barely pay attention to the kids. They are constantly talking to each other and on the phones they are lucky children don't get hurt more often. Also, the teachers will make things up just to keep the parents happy. Say you asked for your child to have a bottle before nap time... the teachers may forget to give it to them and still tell you they had it so that they don't need to deal with upset parents.
Overall, not a good school at all. I don't suggest it and I saw first hand being a teacher.
This is the second school we have sent our daughter to, the first one was very much like a babysitting service but not Elements of Learning! They actually love the kids and the kids love them! Not only is it a nuturing environment, the kids are actually LEARNING! My daughter cannot wait to go everyday. Since starting 8 months ago she her speech and knowledge have grown 10 fold. My newborn son will be starting in a few weeks and I have every confidence that he will love it as much as my daughter, my husband and I do.
Can not say enough good things about this school. It is surely not the closest to me by all means but is well worth the commute. My children LOVE it and so do I. Friendly, knowledgable and caring staff.
