“When it was time for me to go back to work after our daughter Sofia was born, we were apprehensive about the quality of care she would receive. The first place we tried was not what we wanted, lacking the professional staffing and warm atmosphere we needed
Thankfully, a friend recommended Children’s Hour Academy. What a difference! The staff is well educated and consistent, the atmosphere in the infant room is warm and loving. I am especially impressed by the low child to teacher ratio, as well as the strong foundation of continuing education for the teachers. When Sofia comes home in the afternoons, she is happy and clean, and her teacher always prepares a daily report of her activities for me, which I enjoy reading with her in the evenings.
I recommend Children’s Hour Academy to anyone searching for the highest quality of childcare. My daughter has thrived in the care of well educated and loving staff and I have the peace of mind knowing that I am sending her to the best school available.”
“Having had two children at CHA for over 7 years (and counting), I can recommend this school without reservation. CHA has the highest standards set for everything they do. From the meals, to the activities, the play time, field trips and all of the learning, there is no better place to have your children go when they have to spend time away from you. The teachers provide a loving environment that is clean, safe and fun! I respect and trust the guidance and philosophies that are reinforced every day. The class sizes are just right for a great deal of special attention, yet enough kids to get the needed social interaction for growth. With on-going reports and communication, I know exactly how and what and how my child is doing every day, which gives me comfort and confidence that they are in good hands with loving hearts.”
“I interviewed at least 10 in home & school style daycares. CHA was the cleanest, lowest parent to teacher ratio, most educated teachers, and the best place I interview by far. Also, when I interviewed CHA, Pat said CHA wants to be the best early childhood program; that is what we wanted for our child.” “Low teacher/child ratio, caring atmosphere, and attention to child’s development. Indoor play area. Low use of videos.” “Quality of care, cleanliness, child to caregiver ratio, age appropriate lesson plans. The children’s Hour Academy has been a wonderful experience for our two children Grant and Amanda. It was such a loving and caring environment. Our children really enjoyed their teachers and have learned so much from them. We believe our children were introduced to so many new and exciting learning opportunities. We would highly recommend the Children’s Hour Academy.”
“I want to thank you for providing my two daughters with such a wonderful environment for the past three years at Children’s Hour Academy. We feel fortunate to have had Michelle, Kenna and Cleta as caregivers for the girls – they are all extraordinary! Your teaching staff always made us feel like we were surrounded by family. They are a very special group of people. As a result of the outstanding education, caring and respect that our girls received at your school, they have become very solid — both academically and socially — compared with their same-age peers outside of CHA. Over the past three years at CHA, I watched my oldest daughter, Kelli, blossom from a shy, uncertain 2 year old to a confident, articulate 5 year old. At 4 years old, Morgan is outgoing and very sure of herself, which I consider a direct result of time spent with your caring, loving teachers. I appreciate the way you always took the time to talk with me when I faced a dilemma related to discipline and other child-rearing issues. Your willingness to drop everything on a moment’s notice to give me advice or talk through my situation was really a gift. I will never forget your generosity. We will always treasure our memories from the girls’ years at Children’s Hour. Thank you for absolutely everything. Your school is truly a unique and wonderful place!”
