I have had four children at ALC and I honestly can’t say enough good things… Some specific things that have made Achievements the top choice for our family: 1. Quality Care – the feeling that the teachers AND entire staff know my kids well and understand their individual needs – the teachers are qualified and professional and warm and caring as well – I know that my kids are in a loving and nurturing environment where they are not just being “watched” but are actively learning. 2. Structure and Consistency – with four kids, our home can sometimes be chaotic but, at ALC, I know that my kids have a consistent schedule including fun and engaging lesson plans, along with specific daily routines 3. Physical Environment – the classrooms, play areas and grounds are neat, clean, and attractive. The classrooms are print-rich, stimulating, and warm – ALC is frankly the best maintained child care center that I’ve seen. 4. BRIGHTWHEEL – ALC uses the brightwheel app which has been a game changer for me as a parent. Throughout the day, I can see pictures of my kids playing, learning, and having fun. I also get updated in real time regarding what they’re doing and eating, potty and nap times, etc. Even though I’m not with them, I feel completely connected to them. 5. Professionalism – the staff has always been professional, supportive, patient, and flexible. They have gone out of their way to support us as a large family and to ensure our kids are receiving the best care. I think every parent has felt that twinge of “guilt” when they drop their kids off for the day, but there is no greater gift than having peace of mind when you say goodbye. With ALC, I truly have peace of mind.
