What our Parents say
We couldn't be happier with our entire Playdates experience. It is the best first school experience for children and parents alike! Our daughter is so happy and excited to go to school each week and it has been so rewarding to see her thrive in this environment. It is wonderful receiving the artwork and projects she brings home each day and we hang on every sweet word and picture in the weekly newsletter. Thank you, thank you!!

Your program is simply wonderful! I have been so pleased as well as impressed. Caelan has loved every minute of it! I have felt so confident leaving Caelan in their very capable but more importantly loving hands! Ms. Dot, Ms. Debbie and Ms. Pattycakes are three very special ladies.

This has been a wonderful experience for James. Nancy and Joan truly understand how two year olds behave, develop and learn. Communication really has been tremendous and open at all times. This is a fabulous program and I am thrilled we will be joining next year with William.

The Playdates program is great. I wish I had known about it with my 6-year old!

My first drop off with my first child could not have been better! Miss Julie and Miss Nancy always went the extra mile to make everyone comfortable and happy. They have been wonderful - we look forward to seeing our younger 2 through the program.

I was thrilled with my first “MB” experience (with my first child.) The teachers are fabulous and work together so well which really shows. They have provided Sean with an amazing introduction to school, sharing, and friendships outside the home that will be an amazing foundation to his preschool years. Thank you. You are all amazing and saints in my book.
