Great school! I've looked in this area and there is nothing around that compares. Clean, friendly, organized classrooms. My son started at 1yo and its not like a daycare, they actually teach them throughout the day. He learned how to wash his hands in the first week. The staff is friendly, the director greets you by name each day and they keep the parents involved which I personally like. You won't find this level of care at most places.

I am very thankful and extremely satisfied with this school. I was looking for a school, not for a day care, for a long time before I found Christian Life Academy.

Right after graduating from CLA, my oldest son was number one in his first grade and way ahead of everybody. He loves studying and reads books one after another. I have not made him do any of those things. I contribute the majority of his "love to study" to CLA. I also want to point out their honesty about the behavior of my children. Every time Austin did something inappropriate they would make a note and with that suggest what should we do to correct that behavior in a healthy way. For young parents like us advises like that were invaluable.

My youngest son is attending the third year now. He is very fast, quick, and super active. When we were trying to read some stories to him at home, he would not sit in one place a second, and he would start running around and jump and do his own thing. I was very concerned about him being able to handle the school. To my surprise, teachers were able to find a way to get him to learn sit still and focus. He is getting better and better at it. Teachers also have noticed that he is very creative and suggested a unique approach to nurturing and growing his creativity. Now he is only 4 and loves his enrichment program where he does amazing crafts. Today he knows all of the letters of the alphabet and asking us to teach him how to read. He is only four, and fascinated about being able to read! It amazes me every time.

At home they often play a game of being a teacher and trying to copy everything their CLA teachers do. I am happy to learn then that the manners and conversations are polite and professional.

A loving and educational atmosphere of Christina Life Academy staff setting my kids up for early success in their life.

No other words than Thank You! can come out from us, as parents.

My son is in the two year old class. He was delayed in speech prior to attending. Within two months he is talking much more and knows his colors, numbers, and letters. His speech therapist goes to school with him for a few hours a day. Two separate speech therapists have complimented me on how well structured and organized the school is and how great the teachers are. My son had never been in preschool before and was crying and anxious for the first week and a half. Now he runs in with excitement and hugs all the teachers. They also give detailed daily report on how much he ate, slept, and how many dirty diapers including the times of changes.

Thank you for the information below. My son also has a difficult time leaving us and cries every time. I was considering this place for both my son and daughter, but you have made my choice a simple one. I will continue to look

That other review was terrible and totally unwarranted! When a child is asked to leave a program then that child's situation must have been very extreme. My daughter also attends this school in the two year old class and we could not be happier. She runs into her teachers arms in the mornings! she is learning Bible stories, Bible verses , she knows her letters, numbers, shapes and colors, counts to 20, is now beginning to do phonics and they even got her potty trained!! The curriculum at this school is so strong I know they are the reason she's doing as well as she is. I love this place!

I started my son at this school and he attended from 1/16 to not even the end of 2/16. This was such a mistake! We needed a fulltime day care after he was only watched by his grandparents from the time my maternity leave was over. My son is not quite 3 yet. Two weeks after he started this school and it was clear he was anxious and crying the majority of the day. Every paper every day from the school was negative feedback. We chose to have him evaluated at the behest of his teacher and the center director. This happend after several last minute meetings with the teacher and center director regarding my son's crying, anxiety and hyperactivity. After basically demanding a 1 to 1 for my son, and writing a list of all the things negative they could think of. Even accusing my son of having "abnormal gait - always runs, only walks with supports" which basically means my son doesn't know how to walk. Which is an outright lie that was observable by the evaluation team during his in home evaluation by NHS by the way. The school following the evaluation was then unhappy when they were informed that he would not have a 1 to 1, and that he would instead receive 2 hours special instruction, and 2 hours occupation therapy per week. I will run down my son's last week there. Monday - my son had a quiet and calm day. The center director asked my husband "Did you give him cold medicine" as if we drugged our son. We did not. The second day a paper comes home stating my son Had another reserved and quiet day - is everything ok? I then replied that home life was positive and he had a wonderful weekend, and we even adopted a kitten after reading companion animals help with anxiety. School went as far to say today that my son could be "Bipolar, and should be evaluated by CHOP", because this week was an unfair representation of him, and that his service providers were not able to see his extreme hyperactivity. I work in mental health - a child would not be diagnosed until age 4 for a mental health diagnosis first of all. Second of all how OUTLANDISH! He is 2 years old! Even more appalling - The school said my sons last day would need to be 3/4/16 because they cannot serve him. No, no today was his last day because my son deserves so much more. 250 per week for what exactly?
