Hansel & Gretel Early Learning Center Reviews
I have read the other reviews and I have a had a totally different experience with this center. [content removed by School Finder Review team]. This is not a place I would take my child too. The furniture is out dated, the playground is uninviting, the staff don't look happy and the menu isn't child friendly. Think twice before you enroll your child here. My child won't ever be attending this center. You might pay more at other centers but cheaper isn't always better.
I was at another Learning Center that was not challenging enough for my daughter. My mom suggested looking at Hansel and Gretel because my niece and nephew went there about 10 years ago. I walked in for a visit only to look at a place for my daughter and walked out with a spot for both my son and daughter. My daughter was 3 at time and my son was 4. It was the best move for them. They started to learn more, the teacher's were great. The talked to me about everything and anything. I was convinced that I made the right choice. My son was entering Kindergarten last year. I had to choose between a public school or an Early Learning Center. I chose to keep him Hansel and Gretel for Kindergarten. The teacher was great! She was very open and let me know if there was a problem. Any question I had she answered it. I was concerned that my son had a Learning Disability and both the teacher and the director sat down with me and talked to me. I could not ask for a better place. At the end of the school year, my son started to read and do simple math. I couldn't believe it. In Public School they say normally by the end of First Grade a child should be reading, and here my son is reading in Kindergarten. Now in First Grade at a public school he is advanced. I owe it all to Kindergarten at Hansen and Gretel. My daughter is now in Kindergarten part time at public school and part time at Hansel and Gretel. I have to commute her from one to the other. I made that choice so she can have the best education in Kindergarten. I know she will succeed because of her going to Hansel and Gretel. There Kindergarten program is top notch!! I would and have recommended them to anyone because I have seen what they do and did for my children.
I have had my daughter enrolled in Hansel and Gretel since she was 6 months old. She is now going on 3 in November. By far I can say I would never take my daughter to another daycare center. The people are phenominal. My daughter has learned so much here and her level of intelligence is well beyond any other child of her age. I find this in large part due to the attention and learning practices given by this learning center. To me, this is not just a daycare. It is also a school. My daughter loves all the people and looks forward to coming everyday. She brings everything she learns home with her. From the songs to counting, knowning her shapes, numbers, colors, etc. She has grown very well over the first years and even though I take responsibility for a lot of my daughter's abilities as a nurturing parent, outside parties have taken a great portion of that responsibility. I would refer any friend, family member, or anyone to this center. The people here are friendly and have always worked with me when I've had problem with anything.
