Not ever coming back..
I do not think this place should be open and taking care of children. They just recently lost 4 of their teachers and they are really struggling to make ends meet. I understand this economy is difficult, but at the same time, I think management is a key point, and this place seems to miss that point.
As of September of 2011 Kids/Teachers ratios are being constantly violated, and the teachers that take care of them don't really bother to interact with the children. But I guess that is what you get when you don't pay your teachers on time and more than minimum wage. Anyway, for the sake of your children, find another place.
My child went for two weeks before I took him out..
This daycare may be ok for kids who are accustomed to attending daycare. However when I sent my child there he was three and it was his first time. The staff literally sat there and watched him cry and at no point did they try to comfort him, this went on for two weeks. They actually expected me to sit there with him to make him comfortable before I went to work. The final straw was when I dropped him off one morning, and one of the teachers who was a little bit more sympathetic asked another teacher to help comfort him when she replied, “I don’t know him”, and proceeded to make a personal phone call. I packed his stuff and walked out the door. I will say some of the staff was very nice, but it was not enough to make me stay.
Just a side note I took my son to another daycare. He cried the first day and we have not had a problem ever since. Makes one wonder.
Good school for the price.
My two daughters (3 and 1) have been at this school since they both turned 3 months old. We chose it for one basic reason. We felt it was the best school that we could afford. The price ranges from about 125-175 per week depending on the age of your child which is significantly cheaper than many of the child care centers that are all over $200 week in Metro Nashville Area.
We've been happy with this school and will continue to keep our daughters here. The key to our experience at this school though is what teachers they have. There are several amazing, experienced teachers that have been there forever and do a great job and we're lucky when our child is in their class. However, ( i guess like any school) there are teachers that aren't nearly as good and obviously pale in comparison to their peers. Besides this good solid core of teachers there is significant tunover in the other teachers which can be frustrating for a parent.
Basically, if you have unlimited funds you can probably find a better school. However, if price is an issue and your looking for a quality value I would recommend Tomorrow's Leaders.

Ok preschool for weathly parents..
I rate this preschool as average. I believe the owner is in business only to make money not just her love for the children. The teachers make this daycare what it is today, not the owner!
On top of the tuition increase, the owner asks the parents to assist her in building repairs such as a new playground and school van.
Best Child Care out there. The owner has such a commitment to the education of our children. I wish I lived closer to the facility so that my children could benefit. They teach children memorization, through reciting poems and songs. And most children who come from this facility perform above grade level once they are ready for school. My children went when they were young and I would recommend to anyone out there who wants their child to be smart. If you can afford the tuition, it is worth the investment. I have not been able to find another day care as dedicated to educating children as this one, no matter what the cost or how pretty the facilities.
