Hear from our parents

Everyone is always so approachable, welcoming and kind and I know my child is in great hands when I leave her. I know she loves her classroom and teachers, as well, and that gives me great peace of mind.
Alexandra S., Columbine

This is one of the very few places I would trust with my daughter. The staff is amazing and my daughter loves it there.
Olivia D., Columbine

Great people and facility.
Brian A., Columbine

The director and staff know all of the children. Staff actively works to keep parents engaged with activities and progress of their child.
Allison M., Columbine

I like that my child is learning to express himself in creative ways. He is learning socialization/how to share, he knows how to vocalize his frustration rather than acting it out. I know he is being taken care of when he is under this centers care. The staff is very friendly, and I like that…
Melanie M., Columbine
