Excellent care from infant to pre-K 10/2/2010

Both of my children have been at My Friends House since they were three months old, and it's been a great experience all around. The infant room teachers are hands-on, loving and interactive with the babies, and they are genuinely interested on the little ones' developmental milestones. The teachers in the toddler through pre-k classes are all so wonderful with the children, and the staff all know every child by name -- what a welcome each morning! The center wen through an administrative change a few years ago, and ever since, the school has really shined. Everyone is happy to be there, and it shows in the teachers' dedication to the kids. Our kids have thrived in the school's play-based curriculum, and extracurricular class are offered during the school day (though there is no pressure to participate). For households like ours with two working parents, My Friends House has been a real blessing. more

Wonderful, caring center 8/23/2010

We love this childcare center. This is our first experience with daycare and our daughter just loves it. She has learned so much in just a few weeks time already. The teachers are caring and very involved in the classroom and with the children. There are a wide variety of activities and learning experiences for the kids. The director and assistant director are friendly and available if you need to talk to them. The ratios are great- better than what's required I believe, especially at the youngest ages. Overall, I would highly recommend this center to anyone! It's a great setting for kids. more

Loving, home environment with daycare benefits 2/23/2010

I have two children that have attended MFH over the past 5 years. We were referred to the school from friends of ours who had their 2 kids go through the school (and were very happy). The teachers are very loving and its clear they are at the center bc of their love for the kids (not just a job). There's a few special teachers that have taught both of my children and we consider them part of our extended family. Anytime we have issues, we feel comfortable bringing them up with our teachers (or the administration) and feel like the issues will be addressed. My oldest is about to ""graduate"" and I'm sad his time at MFH is coming to an end. Although, I will say I know that he's definitely ready for school. He's reading (beginning level), can add, subtract, etc. but most importantly he's REALLY independent, makes friends easily and has great social skills. Pros: Teachers, curriculum, low ratios Cons: shut down over Christmas week, we had a hard time getting in more

Wonderful, caring teachers 11/3/2008

We have been so impressed with the caring teachers at My Friend's House (MFH). My oldest daughter started in the full-time program at 18 months. The ratios are much lower for that age, then at the for-profit center where she was previously. When toured centers, my husband remarked that the teachers at other centers seemed to be ""doing their job"" whereas the ones at MFH truly cared about the kids. We have found that to be the case. During a tough family transition, I felt like the my child's teachers really provided her with lots of love and stability, making the transition much easier. \r \r The center has full-time, part-time, and after-school care. My younger child was in the part-time program called Playtime group. She also had very caring teachers and low ratios. \r The curriculum is very good. My children were well prepared for kindergarten and were encouraged to develop their creativity, confidence, social skills, and motor skills. They have a nice large playground with shade, so they are and are able to spend time playing outside every day. \r \r I can not say enough positive things about how much MFH has meant to our family. The prices are reasonable considering the quality of staff and low ratios. Many of the teachers have been there for years.\r \r The center is housed at Northwest Hills United Methodist Church on Far West, next to Murchison Middle School. There is a weekly chapel for older kids, which provided a great foundation for teaching our children basics like God loves them and helping them understand how to care for others. Friends of different faiths found the chapel to be fine for their children as well. \r \r I found that it was much easier dropping off my kids when I knew they would be in such a caring environment.\r \r Pros: Caring teachers, low ratios Cons: older facilities more

Poor Staffing and Child Interaction 1/25/2006

The directors and teachers in the infant program are not qualified to be in their positions. My daughter had a touch transistion and they kept telling me it was something we were doing at home. After 3 months the situation was getting worse and she would come home day after day with scratches on her face. We moved her to a new center and within 2 weeks she had adjusted fine and loved going to school. They need to reevaluate their teachers and their teaching philosphies. Pros: Good Ratios Cons: Teacher Qualification, Equipment, Communication more
