I have sent my children to this school for the past 5 years and we have one more year left at Lil Goldman. We have loved the community and how much the teachers and staff have helped us navigate parenthood. We know and trust that are children are receiving the best education possible while learning strong values and social skills. My kindergartener (graduated Lil G in 2018) was BEYOND prepared to enter her first year of elementary school and she is thriving.
This place is so much more than daycare. Lil Goldman is a learning center. It's a family. Teachers truly care for our children and treat them like their own. My middle son "graduated" from their pre-school program about 2 years ago and was completely prepared for Kinder. He was well ahead of some of his classmates and I knew he was set up for success. My youngest is currently in the "3's" room. He loves all of his activities from music and art and yoga and can even do enrichment like soccer shots. He's learning his numbers and letters and is starting to enjoy the learning part of being at "school." We have been so thrilled with our experience here!! -- RoRo D.
We are so pleased with our experience at Lil Goldman. My son is almost two and he has learned so much in the seven months he has been there. He loves it. It has been the perfect balance of fun and learning. He does science experiments and art projects and music and he gets to play outside every day. His teachers are so nurturing and the entire staff knows his name. I also like that they use the app to share updates and photos throughout the day.
I toured four daycares when we moved to the area, and this one had the best environment and hours for our family. --Sydney O.
My oldest has been here for almost four years. My youngest about a year. My children have received top notch attention, curriculum, social development and most importantly nurturing.
The director is very detail oriented and knows every family and their needs. The teachers are passionate about early childhood education and provide creative and engaging activities to help your kids learn and grow.
They play outside everyday and have so many enriching extras: music, stretch and grow, gardening, yoga, soccer, dance etc. We have been very pleased with the care and education our children have received and are grateful to have found this school.--Glynnis P.
This is not just a daycare. They help develop your child. We had a parent-teacher conference when our child was around 6 months old, which I first thought was silly. But our child's teacher had a multi-page matrix for our child's cognitive, motor, and emotional (maybe more) development. My wife and I were floored. The teacher asked if we had any questions at the end of the conference. We were like, "we love you?"
When we met with the director for our first tour, she explained how their goal was to raise nice, respectful citizens. For example, they teach recycling. When we visited the class rooms with the director, the kids knew her by name and were excited to see her. This did not happen at the other learning center we visited. We later discovered the director enthusiastically leads sing-alongs.
Lil Goldman has relieved our stress from raising our first child. We could not have been happier with our choice. --Michael M.
Two of our three boys have attended Lil Goldman Early Learning Center (our oldest went to Pre-K in California and Ohio). Our middle child first came to Lil Goldman when he was 4 (one year before kindergarten). He left Lil Goldman set up for success in kindergarten and has thrived through first grade. The time they spent learning writing letters and recognizing sight words has definitely set him up for success in elementary school.
Our youngest child has now been at Lil Goldman for 2.5 years and loves it. He is building social and language skills that will prepare him for elementary school.
We feel that Lil Goldman offers a safe, fun environment. We have experienced three different pre-Ks because we've moved a few times and Lil Goldman is by far the best one we've experienced. I highly recommend it.
