I am the mother of a 3 your autistic child who is nonverbal, so when I went back to work I was extremely nervous where I would put my child. I came across Young Scholars University and was amazed. When my son started he was not speaking, but now he is say several words, numbers, colors and phrase. She has help with physical and cognitive skills,

Ms Matthews is kind, caring and over all loves her child and make sure they exceed iin there educational skills and others,

I absolutely love my child at Young Scholars

To Whom it may concern,

It is my pleasure to write a recommendation for Young Scholars University in regards to caring for your children. We had the pleasure of first meeting Mecka when we began our search for a daycare provider after my maternity leave from work was ending. After an exhausting search Mecka stood out from all of the others because of her warm and caring nature and years of experience. At that time our son was almost 5 months old, we were new parents and very apprehensive about letting anyone other than us take care of him. After our first week of care was done I could tell how much our son bonded with Mecka and how thoughtful and gentle she was with him. I would get pictures and videos throughout the day and reports about his development at the end of the week.
Mecka is easy to talk to, open and genuine. She takes our concerns seriously and engages in a professional manner. She is really good at giving feedback, tips or recommendations that she believes will help our son flourish. She does a lot of learning activities and play with our son that have gotten him prepared and on track for preschool. Our son is almost 3 years old and is functioning at the level of a 4 or 5 year old in terms of his comprehension skills and command of English.

At the age of 2 our son knows his alphabets A-Z, can almost count up to 30, knows all his colors, several animals and can sing several nursery rhymes and can read his favorite book from start to finish. Our family is big on education and so is Mecka which is why they watch little to no tv and focus on learning.

I would not hesitate to have Mecka care for Diem at any point of life and any other children if we chose to have more in the future.
If you would like to discuss anything directly with us, we would be happy to do so.
Sincerely,
Parents to a soon to be 3 year old.

It breaks my heart to write this review.
At first it seemed like the best place but eventually it turned out to be something completely opposite of what we thought it would be or what was projected. In just 4 weeks, we had developed a family-like relationship but it all blurred out soon.
We got an impression that money was way above our child's care, our emergency situations, and the relationship we supposedly nailed. Soon after we had to pull our child out of the program, we were removed from all social media platforms too. We want our kid's pictures removed but we have no access and no response too. That plus few other occasions confirmed our suspicion that it was all about the money and money alone.
The facility is not clean and not baby proofed.
So disappointed and genuinely sad about how it turned out.
Reply from Young Scholars University (Child Care)
Young Scholars University strives in having a clean and efficient learning environment! We have passed all fire safety and community care licensing background. We have been open for 10 years with NO violations. YSU had your son saying his first word within 2 weeks of him being at the facility! You (pooja) would spend hours upon hours at the facility agreeing to cook for the staff..Pooja signed a contract that was throughly explained and you recieved a copy regarding LATE fee policy..The late policy stated $1.00 a minute. However you were more than an hour late..Managment decided to cut you a break and only charge $ 15.00. But I guess that wasnt good enough. This is a business and we run and operate as one. Thank you again for allowing YSU to care for your son, we truly enjoyed him! Thanks, YSU

As a new working mother, I was extremely nervous about leaving my son in the care of someone than a family member.
I searched for months until I found Young Scholars, my son started at 4 months old and is now 15 months old. Young Scholars is a true blessing! The hours are convenient with my work schedule, the cost is affordable, the location is safe, clean and welcoming but most of all my son gets plenty of love, care and attention.
I can see a clear difference in the cognitive development of my son and other kids his age. His language skills are impressive and he already knows his body parts, some colors and animals. I credit this to Young Scholars pre-school setting learning environment.
Young Scholars is now a part of our family, sending my son here was the best decision we've made for our son.

I LOVE Young Scholars! I've sent my foster kids and my own kids there. They give the kids lots of love and education in a safe and fun environment. I could not ask for better care for my kids and my kids all adore the staff. Plus, they have taught me so much about good parenting techniques (but only when I ask for help!), especially with our foster kids who had emotional and behavioral challenges.
