We have been a Learning Garden family since our son was 6 weeks old. I could not imagine him anywhere else. The staff is accommodating with our sons health needs, supportive through milestones and challenges, care as if the children were their own, and provide new experiences.
I highly recommend this center to any other families! I will be sad to leave when our son goes to kindergarten in a couple years.

We've been here since 2021, when we enrolled our son at 2 years old, and then later enrolled our daughter last year at 6 weeks. For both of our kids, the staff have been great in keeping us updated with what they're working on, and as our kids transitioned classrooms they made it very easy and accommodating. The staff know us all by name and are super friendly! I love getting the daily updates and seeing all the different activities my kids are doing. It's also a really great price for what we get, and having a discount for enrolling two kids is a great bonus! Our kids literally race in every morning and say bye to everyone when we leave. We got really lucky with finding this place!

We are a long time family that has used The Learning Garden. Our son attended at age 2 until he went to kindergarten. Our daughter is currently enrolled. The hours and pricing have worked very well for our family. We’ve had a great experience with the owners and staff. There has never been a moment we’d consider leaving. Thank you Learning Garden and staff for taking such great care of our family over the years!

We love the Learning Garden and are so happy we found them! Our son has been attending the learning garden for a year or so now and he is just thriving! Prior to The Learning Garden, drop-off’s were rough at his previous child care, but now he asks when we are leaving the house in the morning. He is learning so much and I can just see how much he is growing and developing. I mentioned to his teachers that I needed some help with potty training and within a week, he is fully trained. I can see how much the teachers truly care for the kids and enjoy their jobs. My husband and I have both still had to work during the current pandemic and it has been so great to have the security of child care and having full trust in the staff that the safety of the kids and themselves is at the forefront of their minds. We could not be more grateful for The Learning Garden community.
