My original childcare plan fell apart and I was so fortunate to have found this gem! School locates in a nice quiet neighborhood. Newly renovated. Indoor space is three times as large as some other in-home care that I toured. The front and back yards are designed for kids, with a ton of cute animals, a cabin and a sandbox. Shantha is great with kids. My son is just past two, did not have much experience with daycare, and does not speak English at home. But after two weeks he is not only happy to go to school but also have started to build up his English vocabulary. Shantha is very knowledgable in education and early childhood development, and is very willing to share her knowledge with parents. She provides a ton of Montessori materials for kids to choose from, and guides the kids to explore in a very non-forcing way. I personally believe in love and freedom in raising kids, and I do think that is what my son is getting in school. A couple practical issue: the tuition of Orion is a fraction of those center-base daycare, but the care that the kids get is by no means compromised. They accept kids that are not yet potty-trained, whereas a lot of big Montessori schools do not. They also stress a lot about washing hands to keep the kids and their family healthy.

Orion Kids, previously known as Kinderactivity is an excellent preschool/daycare. The owner is a talented educator who supports each student's academic and social emotional progress. I would highly recommend this preschool/ daycare.
