What Our Parents Say About Us


“We looked at eight local preschools before choosing ACP. The superior level of energy, dedication, and caring of the staff was evident from our first visit, and continues to impress me after six years and three children. The staff goes above and beyond.  For example, they organized a series of meetings to assist us at home when my son went through a challenging behavior phase.  A teacher gathered helpful info for me when I mentioned my first grader was struggling with homework. They even sent me a wall-sized homemade get well card signed by all the kids while I was in the hospital.  And a hundred more examples. This is on top of an impeccable curriculum, unmatched student teacher ratios, a face to face summary of the child's day at pickup (unheard of elsewhere), a strong emphasis on nutrition ("Fresh is Best!"), flexible days of the week, and a daily schedule that makes a lot more sense than other schools. I couldn't be happier with our choice of preschool”

"A Child's Place has been an invaluable experience for our family.  The environment is fun, educational, supportive, and loving.  Each teacher and staff member has a vested interest in the children.  They have been with us through life's ups and downs and have proved a great resource when we have been faced with rearing challenges.  We love that ACP is an inclusive environment as it has taught our kids how to appreciate friends of all abilities.  We look forward to continuing our parenting journey with ACP!   It is always difficult to entrust your children's care to anyone else, but with ACP we have never once doubted that our kids were taken care of in the best way possible"
-Shauna S. (mom of a two ACP Alumni and a current ACP student) 



"When it came time to find a high quality, developmental preschool that is staffed with exceptional teachers who are kind and passionate about their job, my options seemed limited. Now, add in the fact that I have a child with special needs and my choices seemed nonexistent. Then came a casual conversation with another mom who highly recommended A Child's Place. It almost seemed too good to be true. A high-quality preschool that implemented best practices in teaching AND was inclusive!!! When I came for the tour I met with an amazing Director, Darcie Kass, who saw value and ability in EVERY child! I highly recommend ACP and am confident that you will experience the same warm and welcoming environment in which your child will grow and thrive just like mine did!"

"We have been a part of the Child’s Place Learning Center family since 2010. Our son, Lincoln, and our daughter, Dillan, both attended ACP and we couldn’t say enough wonderful things about them. Our children were cared for and treated by the teachers as if they were their own. Often times being greeted with a hug – which I just loved! They truly love our children. Beyond that, both children were well prepared for kindergarten and social situations, such as making good decisions and treating others with respect. The teachers are very approachable and always make time to talk. When I was looking for preschools for my son to attend years ago I was referred by friends to check out ACP. Although I respected their suggestions, I decided to research preschools for myself. I took a few days off of work and visited 8-10 preschools around the area – finally making an appointment with the director at ACP to stop by. As soon as I walked into the center I knew it was the place for my son. It wasn’t big and fancy, but it was inspiring, warm and welcoming. I loved it so much. I made the decision that day to send my son there… followed by my daughter a few years later. I have referred many of my friends to ACP and will continue to do so"

"My family has been with ACP since 2011. It is an amazing child care center/preschool with kind and compassionate teachers/staff who truly take the time to get to know your children and your family. The teachers are outstanding because they want to be there and it shows. They’re creative, warm, loving, and hold the children accountable for their actions both in the classroom and on the playground. Our family is truly grateful to have found such a wonderful school. We absolutely love ACP and know that you will too!

"This was the best experience we have ever had with a school or preschool.  Not only has Gabby learned some important academic skills, she has gained many useful life skills. Thanks to the patient and caring staff, Gabby has been provided the fundamentals to become a curious, caring and compassionate human being! Thank you so much! Merci beaucoup!!"
-Jaime L.​


"Our twin boys attended ACP in 2007 and received the best instruction, care and social skills coaching.  Each of them had unique needs that were specifically addressed in ACP's social skills program.  The skills they learned gave them a strong foundation moving forward.  Now in middle school, they are doing amazingly well both academically and socially.  We are firm believers in "early intervention" and will be forever grateful to A Childs Place Learning Center and their magnificent staff!"

-Caran and Tim F.

“We have had at least one child at ACP since 2011, and I cannot recommend them more highly.  Not only is the community wonderful and the teachers top notch, but I really value the inclusive environment.  The teaching here goes so far beyond the academic -- they teach kids how to learn and how to be kind.  When my older son started kindergarten after three years at ACP, the teachers regularly commented on how well prepared for kindergarten he was.   I have never hesitated to recommend ACP to others and do so wholeheartedly”
