The Smart start preschool is a fabulous learning center for children between the ages of 3 and 5 years old. This preschool has given our boys the foundation for a successful year in kindergarten, with excellent pre-kindergarten awareness and readiness skills. The staff is kind, open, caring, and enthusiastic about their job. The teachers are very flexible and accommodating, and always looking to help each child reach their full potential. The program is designed to keep my very active boys engaged, occupied, and achieving goals both socially as well as academically. I would recommend The Smart Start to any parent looking for a preschool center for their child.

Customer Testimonials

We love The Smart Smart! As first time parents, we were nervous about sending our twins to daycare. The staff at The Smart Start made us feel welcome and like we were a part of the family from the very beginning. We are constantly amazed by how many activities they participate in as infants! We love how often they read books, learn about music and do arts and crafts – who would think our fridge would be covered in finger paintings when our kids are only 9 months old?? Being able to read about their day and see pictures (in the Tadpoles Daily Report) makes it easier for us to be separated from them during the day. And we appreciate that our children are not only getting the developmental stimulation they need… they are also getting lots of love from the staff.
