"There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever."
Parents Speak …
We pride ourselves on the satisfaction of our students and parents. They are the reason we are in childcare and are also our biggest advocates. The following are excerpts from online reviews submitted by Endeavor parents. If you would like to speak with an Endeavor parent directly, contact us and we will be more than happy to provide you with a reference.
"We couldn't be happier with the staff, the facility and curriculum at Endeavor. From the first time we visited, we were immediately taken by the warmth and nurturing environment Penny and Donna have cultivated here. Not only do we value their respect for environment, nature and healthy living, but also their emphasis on building community amongst the children and families. There are so many options when it comes to daycare facilities, and I truly believe that there is no better place for our daughter." -Stephanie W.
"You are truly part of our family and I can't wait to see our boys grow up as I know the great foundation you have given them has set them on the path to success!" -Theresa W.
"Thank you for making this a pleasant Pre-K experience for Ella and our entire family. You all have been so kind, caring and personable. It has made a huge impact in our transition from schools. Our kids, even the ones that do not attend here, feel so welcomed by all of you. It really feels like a family here." -Tim P.
“Our son has attended Endeavor for two years and we are extremely pleased with our experience with them. The main reasons I would recommend Endeavor are: 1. High Quality Teachers /Small class sizes – they all have degrees and numerous years of experience. I feel that I can trust them in assisting with my child’s development. 2 Curriculum/Learning – they bring in outside speakers from different fields (Zoo, etc.), concentration on teamwork between the kids, organize field trips, and even have Spanish classes. 3. Recreation Time/Environment/Exercise – they spend a lot of time outside at their playgrounds or walking on their nature trails, and they have a large indoor play area for when the weather is bad. 4. Food – they serve fresh vegetables and whole foods. 5. Communication – I get to read the blogs about what is happening and I also receive a daily activity note with details about his day. 6. Location - It is near 71 and allows us easy access for dropping off and picking up our son. - Richard T.
“Our search for child care seemed endless. Every place we visited seemed institutional and cold, and I could not imagine leaving my child in the care of any of these places. A friend of mine told me about Endeavor, and from the moment we walked in, I knew it was different. It was clean, open and warm. Our daughter felt comfortable immediately, and the teachers were friendly and loving. Endeavor is not a day care center. It is a child-focused school that offers fun, learning, respect for the environment and most importantly, love for children. This would not be possible without the teachers, who provide amazing programs for the kids and treat the children like their own. We feel truly blessed to have found Endeavor and could not imagine taking our child anywhere else.” - Julie C.
“I found Endeavor somewhat by accident when I was interviewing child care centers when I was pregnant with my daughter. Within 5 minutes of meeting the staff I felt very at home and calm. I am so glad I chose them! Every day Miss Penny makes time to talk to me at drop off and pick-up, and we have become good friends. All the other staff are always friendly and interested in what is going on and show nothing but affection for my daughter. You could also say that I have some more "alternative" parenting choices such as baby-led weaning, cloth diapering, etc., and they have really worked with me to learn about them and integrate them into their program. I would highly recommend Endeavor to anyone, whether they are looking for part time or full time care. In fact, I selected them because they were close to my office, but I recently switched jobs and continue to drive my daughter 40 minutes to their location because I value their level of care so much. I truly feel that they love my daughter as if she were a family member of their own.” - Abbey U.
