“Our three year old just loves his teacher and friends, and our first grader loves the summer camp program. They’ve always got an agenda so the kids are never bored. They come home excited every day exploding to tell us about it!”
“I have to say that Small World has been a great expeirence for both my daughter and I. I attended Small World as a child and have fond memories of my time there. That is why when I had my children they were right at the top of my list of providers. My expeirences with the staff no matter the circumstances have been great. They really seem to care about my daughter. They offer dance classes and karate classes on site which I think is great !!!!! And the coffee in the morning is nice, look forward to it. They are priced right even for a single mother like myself. Give them a two thumbs up!!!”
“I love all of the people there. They are like family to us and treat all of our kids (whether they go there or not) like their own and are very loved. We have never had any problems with them and all of the staff go the extra mile.”
“Small World, Thank you in advance for all your help, and all that each one of you do everyday my daughter is there. It’s a “huge” relief when I leave her for a day-I know she will be well taken care of. Small World staff are so fantastic-friendly, committed to the children, with continual support of values, rules, guidelines and fun.”
