Kathy and Anthony Danesi (Hollin’s nana and grandpa) - “When Hollin comes to our house, he is excited to tell us about what he learned at school (daycare). For example, his mom calls us when they leave daycare and Hollin will tell us about his day. Yesterday grandpa could not hear him talking. His mom said Hollin was talking in a whisper because that is what they were learning to do in school. He loves school.”
Amanda Wagner - “We choose Brainy Kid’s Place for our 2 year old son for numerous reasons, but the final decision was made when our friends began sharing their positive testimonials and expressing their sincere satisfaction with Chelsea and her staff. After visiting the facility, meeting with Chelsea and her staff, and seeing how sincerely engaged all the kiddos seemed to be, we felt in our hearts that this was the right place for our little one. I cannot thank Ms. Chelsea and her staff enough for constantly molding Hollin into a courteous, friendly toddler and fostering learning in a constructive yet flexible environment.”
Kody Gregson - “ My son loves his classroom and all the girls work there get hugs and kisses from him daily. He never cries when I drop him off and he is always excited to show me is work every day when I pick him up. His teachers keep me updated on his development and I am grateful for the structure they provide him. He has learned so much from his teachers. One thing that stands out is that the same ladies are there day in and day out. I like the fact that the owner is there on a daily/weekly basis so if I have any concerns she has an open door for discussions. Thank you Brainy Kids for treating my son like as if he was one of your own children. The dedication of your teachers is something my family is grateful for. While I am at work I know he is happy, enjoying himself and most importantly safe from harm.”
Jamie Leggio, Santa Fe, Texas - "My son Luca is two. We were looking at Brainy Kids Place initially for their location because it is very close to my home, but then as I came in and toured the facility I really liked the site. I also noticed the staff here really love the kids. Your child is more than a number here. Then I had some challenges with little Luca and they helped me work through them. We are still working on them, but they really do care here."
Preschoolers are constantly on the move and ready to go. We facilitate physical development needs with daily opportunities to use large muscles, including running, jumping, and balancing. Our gym also offers many riding toys and tricycles. Our teachers foster, not fight the wiggles, with dancing and singing.
Our Preschool classroom is designed for the curious two - three and a half year old. It is our children’s first “formal” preschool setting and is designed to be an environment that fosters a child’s love for learning. Your child will be immersed in letters, numbers, language and science exploration. The room is centered on a preschooler's favorite question: WHY? It is geared toward answering many of their daily questions and exposing them to the land of learning!
We generally begin potty training children when they enter preschool. The teacher and the child’s parents will decide when the child is ready to begin potty training. When the child shows an interest and is not afraid to sit on the toilet, we invite the child to use the toilet. When a child begins the process of toilet training we require that the child stays in his/her pull-up and uses the bathroom during the scheduled diapering time. When the child starts to have success on the toilet, we will encourage parents to put their child in pull-ups at home. Once the child begins having success at home, we invite the child to wear pull-ups at school.
