Couldn't be happier

My wife and I are so extremely pleased with the level of care and attention our daughter receives at the daycare that we only wish we had taken our son there before he started school. The staff are uber-friendly and so supportive. They made our daughter feel at home from day one and their communication is reassuring. The family-feel you get and caring nature of all the staff there is truly amazing. She has the best time there, and they regularly go out on trips and special activities away from the premises. I've recommended The Ole Schoolhouse to all our friends with kids and will continue doing so for many years.

I love the Ole Schoolhouse I have my two children there and the teachers are super supportive and work alongside parents to provide the best care for individual children. I feel confident to talk to the teachers about anything I have to. I changed my children from another daycare to the ole school house and it was the best choice I ever made. I love being apart of the ole schoolhouse and my girls love going to see their teachers and friends. :) :)

My daughter has been attending the Ole schoolhouse since she was 7 months old. My child is now 2 years 5 months and loves being a part of the Ole School house family. She is always happy to go and see the wonderful teachers there. I was so pleased that I picked the Ole School house after looking at 10 other daycares. I would highly recommended the Ole school house to any one looking for a daycare for their child. The staff are amazing!!! So friendly, kind and genuine. They are all a part of our family and I do not want our child to ever leave. Her vocabulary and skills are continually improving and she is always singing new songs. Thank you so much Julie, Eric and all the staff for making my child journey to daycare a positively perfect one, we love you :)
