Circle of Friends Child Learning Center Reviews
This is the best child care center I could ever hope for.
I have two children that have come to this center since they were 8 weeks old. The teachers are so passionate and loving. When I was first looking for a center three years ago, I came in for a tour. The director and staff were very sweet and answered every question that I had in each room. My husband was unavailable to stop with me because of his work schedule. He stopped in the following day without setting up an appointment. He had the same feeling as I did when he walked in the door. Everyone was so nice, and even the director stopped what she was doing and took him around the center. Before I started my son, the director (Debbie) asked if I would like to stop in and visit with his teachers. She said it would make an easier transition. I agreed. I stopped in later that week and visited with Ms. Sharon & Ms. Angie. They made me feel so comfortable with leaving my little boy in their care. I visited three times within the week before I started. This led to a very close relationship with the staff at COF!! I feel that this center is more than a child care center; I feel that this center is a home away from home for my family and I. Now that my first child is older I was able to have that same connection with the other teachers including Ms. Bridgette, Ms. Diamond, Ms. Jamie, Ms. Kortney, Ms. Kathryn, Ms. Ann & Ms. Bre to mention a few, plus, I have a close relationship with the director, Debbie. I have recommended this center to a lot of my friends and family which also feels that same way as I do. I know that I have looked at different centers and not one can compare to this center.
I have had children at this center for over 3 years....I have been extremely pleased with the center! They truly care about the children, there is a wonderful balance between play and learning, and my children have made lasting friendships. Ms. Debbie and the teachers do a great job.
I have a child that comes to this center. I feel very satisfied with the care that my child has recieved for the past year and a half. I have never felt that my child was treated with direspect nor have I ever been treated badly. My child come's in very early in the morning and I have watched how the teachers treat the children with love and patience! I would never be able to handle a few situations that had occured while I was dropping off. For example: One child that was older would scream, hit and yell at the teachers and children. I actually was worried about my child being around this boy. The teachers were very calm and made me and my child feel safe. I give these teachers and director so much gratatude for what they do every day and still come to work with a smile! As far as the comment that was posted below. I remember that note about the blanket, the teachers and director asked every parent if they happened to take it home accidently. Everyone worked very hard to find it, and this is the gratitude that is given? Also, the teachers do explain that if you bring in a toy, it may get lost in the shuffle and not to bring in any toys from home. I would recommend this Child Care Center to all of my friends! It is an awesome place to bring your child, some place warm, loving and fun to be at!
My children have been here for the last 1-1/2 years. My 4-year old already knows to write her name and the entire alphabet. Perhaps it's your child that isn't learning. Take a proactive approach and create a balance between the Learning Center and home and see how much they learn. Don't put all your trust in the daycare, be a parent as well.
At least for the younger children, there is nothing "learning center" about this place. Claims to offer language development ... yeah, you schedule/pay for the therapists to come to the center while your child is there. Not an impressed parent - w/ the learning, disinfecting, or feeding procedures.
