Being a stay at home mom for the first few years made the thought of preschool terrifying! Having someone else look after my son seemed crazy. After touring a few preschools, we decided on Pumpkin Patch! Ms. Christine (director) and Ms. Ashley were a pleasure to meet and seemed so down to earth, you could tell they were genuine people. Our family couldn't be happier with our decision. Our son has grown in so many ways and is excelling more each day. Ms. Ashley and Ms. Heather have a wonderful working relationship that carries over to their students. I would, and have recommended this preschool to anyone looking for one. After reading the first, horrible review, I could Disagree more. We never had an issue with field trips (they require parents to leave proper seats the day of the trip), pretty simple. The Main reason we chose this place was because the new owner was so easy to talk to you, understanding and accommodating. I know change can be tuff, especially when it comes to our children but from what I can see and I've heard, this place has made all the right steps to make a great place for families.

My daughter has been at Pumpkin Patch since her birth in 2015. The staff have changed, but the teachers are very caring. We've never had any problems with any teachers or "friends". Everyone is helpful and I have never seen a teacher behave badly towards a child. What's even more reassuring is that when my daughter is having a great day, all the staff know and they tell me. Its great that the communication flows to all the teachers and even the director.
My daughter loves to go to PP. They've helped her grow and she loves her teachers. She knows them all by name and gives them hugs when we leave. They've been so supportive in potty training and her other developmental needs. I would recommend PP to any parent!

If I could give this center 0 stars then I would! I had my child at this center from the infant classroom all the way up to preschool graduation, but when ownership changed in mid 2016 everything went down hill. A lot of the regular teachers left and my child was thrown with random new teachers for the remainder of her time there. It was very concerning to see all of the teachers that my child was so attached to, suddenly leave, but then children started leaving as well.

The management team prior to the ownership change had a good rapport with the families, unlike the new owner. The new owner seems unapproachable and standoffish. I know that I am not the only dissatisfied parent, as I watched the enrollment drop lower and lower as time went on.

It has recently come to my attention that students were transported on a field trip without proper child seats and without parents being informed ahead of time about the way their children were being transported.

As a parent, I would not recommend this center to anyone!!!
