Last year I had been searching for the right place for my son and our family. I had visited several centers prior to learning about The Cary School. Once I visited there I just knew it was the right place for my son. It is a bright, cheery environment - both people and the building/grounds.
My son has now been at The Cary School for a little over a year, and I have nothing but positive comments to share. All the staffers are very energetic, caring, and professional. The school is educationally-focused, and my son is excited to come home and share what he has learned. He loves the fun field trips and has made many good friends over this past year. By the time he starts kindergarten, I know he is definitely going to be ready socially and educationally.
I wish I had found this special place sooner when he was a baby. I see the love and tender care that the staffers give to all the sweet little babies.
Over the past few months the staffers have been working hard with the children on a number of songs so they could put on a performance for the graduation ceremony. Last week was the performance and the songs, costumes and decorations were fabulous! The children had a blast!

As an admittingly embarrassed helicopter parent, I have no problem giving The Cary School 5 stars and wish I could only give more. My child was timid about joining a new school after our move to Cary. Gizem, the school director, our daughter's teacher's texted, called, and kept us engaged every day with photos and updates. My daughter loved each and every single one of the employees, including Mr. Eddie's fantastic meals. Watching her run in to hug each teacher and program director each day gave me peace of mind that she felt loved and welcome. Nature infused learning, small classroom size, frequent field trips... my child grew academically, socially, and emotionally. She is more than prepared for kindergarten. We love TCS. My husband and I always talk about how we wish they had a kindergarten program!
This is a fantastic school that not only cares about your child's well being, but also their development, growth, and individual needs. The classrooms are all carefully planned out to provide a learning environment specific to each age group. My child attends part-time, and I'm amazed by how much he has improved socially. He used to hate going to new places and seeing new people, but now he's a social butterfly!

They do not tolerate any shortcomings of teachers, so they've had some trouble with staffing. This is the only "negative" which I don't even consider to be negative.

I would recommend this school to anyone, especially parents like me, who have a hard time leaving their little one behind. Your child is loved and respected here!

This school is poorly run. It seemed like every other week there was a new teacher in my child's room and not one of them knew how to properly care for children. Then want to blame it on the child. I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone! My child is now thriving in a school that knows what they are doing and has had the same teachers in the same classroom for years.
This is the best daycare/school experience I have had with my son or even seen. The teachers are amazing, everyone at the school truly cares about your child. The way the rooms are set up and the things they have are great. My little one loves this place!
