Parent Testimonials

We love The Smart Smart!  As first time parents, we were nervous about sending our twins to daycare.  The staff at The Smart Start made us feel welcome and like we were a part of the family from the very beginning.  We are constantly amazed by how many activities they participate in as infants!  We love how often they read books, learn about music and do arts and crafts – who would think our fridge would be covered in finger paintings when our kids are only 9 months old??  Being able to read about their day and see pictures (in the Tadpoles Daily Report) makes it easier for us to be separated from them during the day.  And we appreciate that our children are not only getting the developmental stimulation they need… they are also getting lots of love from the staff.

We feel so lucky to have found The Smart Start a few years ago when we were desperately looking for a better childcare center for our oldest son. We toured several daycares in the area, and surrounding areas, and from the moment we walked into this center to take the tour and meet the teachers it felt like the best second “home” for our son.   We had an immediate feeling of peace here and our son felt it, too. He went from a place that he dreaded going to, to where he was running to get ready to go to “school” every day. He really thrived here.


When our second son was born we didn’t have to fret over finding a great place for him to be. We knew he would be attending the Smart Start and it felt like returning home when we stepped through the doors again a couple of years later.  We even drive  out of our way, and pass about 4 other childcare centers, to get here. Our oldest child gets to visit when we pick up our youngest child and a couple of his much loved teachers are still there and they still interact with him on a level as if he never left. The wonderful new teachers also interact with him on a very caring level and we know our little guy loves this place just as much as his older brother.  


In recent years, they’ve also added a new program, Tadpoles,  to communicate even more with parents and they are able to share many pictures and happenings of the day about your child with this program. It gives a really nice glimpse into how great of a day the kids are having here.


The number of children enrolled has really increased from when our oldest boy was there and we know that is very much a testament to what a great place The Smart Start is!  We really can’t say enough about this wonderful place, and its teachers.

The Smart Start is a wonderful learning center and I am so thankful my daughters are now part of the Smart Start family.  The teachers are amazing, kind, caring and my children are learning so much in just the first few weeks since they were enrolled.  The girls look forward to going to school each morning and I know it is the place for them.  The Smart Start also provides great activities and opportunities beyond the classroom for the students and their families (movies night each month for Mom and dad to enjoy and evening out knowing the children are with people we know and trust, Spring Fling, Winter Festival etc.)  A great place that I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a place you can feel good about dropping your children off each day knowing they will learn and be well cared for while you can't be with them.

​Excellent Preschool.  My husband and I are very pleased with this preschool, and we cannot say enough about it.  The program is stellar, with an excellent curriculum, caring staff, and warm environment.  My very two active boys, LOVE going to school, and each day are learning so much, with an emphasis on Kindergarten readiness skills.  The teachers are patient and warm, and always looking for ways to facilitate the achievement of the children, both socially, and academically.  The facility is exceptionally clean and well maintained, and dedicated staff is top notch.  We could not ask for a better place to send out children.

​The Smart Start has been a perfect fit for our daughter.  The academic rich culture as well as the positive learning environment has allowed her to blossom and become a enthusiastic learner.  After her first year, I am so impressed with all the fundamental skills that she is exposed to and has retained!  My daughter loves to come to school each and every day and is welcomes with open arms and smiles each morning.  I feel that The Smart Start is doing an outstanding job preparing her for Kindergarten.  We are so grateful for all that the staff has done!
