The Elegant Child recognizes that our parents have a variety of childcare choices and we appreciate the parents that entrust us with the care and opportunity to educate your children. Here's what they've had to say!
As time goes on, many of my kids' explicit memories of teachers' names and activities fade away. What they are left with is the deep, permanent, emotional memory that they were loved every day.
And for that, there is no equal gift that I can give in return. I can only give you my heartfelt, sincere, and lifelong gratitude for helping me raise my kids.

As soon as I found out I was pregnant with my son in 2007, I knew where I wanted him to go. I worked at The Elegant Child throughout college and there was no doubt in my mind that this was the school my children would attend. He started there at 3 months of age and we happened to live relatively close to the school at the time. When he turned 2, we moved about 25 minutes away but that didn’t stop us from continuing the commute to The Elegant Child because we knew it was the best option around. He stayed at The Elegant Child until it was time to go to Kindergarten. Everyday when I dropped him off and went to work, I knew he was in good hands. As mama’s it is always hard to leave your kid for 8-9 hours a day, but seeing the smile on his face when he saw his friends or teachers left me knowing I made the right choice for him.
Everyone there was truly like family to us, so naturally when we had our second child in 2014, there was (again) no doubt in our mind where she would attend school. She is now 2.5 and we still drive 25 minutes a day each way to take her to school. It is worth every mile and every minute spent in the car to know that my daughter is in good hands and learning from the best teachers around.
When people compliment my children for their manners or tell me they seem so smart for their age, I always give credit where credit is due- to The Elegant Child. My children would not be the amazing tiny humans they are today if it weren’t for the amazing staff and teachers (a.k.a our family) here.
I have recommend so many friends and family to The Elegant Child and I will continue to do so, even once my youngest moves on to elementary school. I know, hands down, they are the best.
I cannot recommend Elegant Child’s Kindergarten program enough. Both of my son’s began as infants and continued through Kindergarten and we adore the teachers and the preparation that our boys were given before entering public school. The full day program provided them with self-esteem, social skills, behavior management, and the academics needed to begin at their local elementary school the following year. Our boy’s received individual attention and communication was always open to support them in the way they needed specifically. We highly recommend this program and we enjoyed seeing them grow in this caring environment.
