My son, Henry, has been attending the program since he was 11 weeks old.
There are many things that my husband and I like about IPELC. The most important thing, of course, is that my child is well-taken care of, and of this I have no doubt. My son loves going to school. Every day – even when he hasn’t been having the best morning – he is happy when we get to the center, and he gets a huge smile on his face when he sees his teachers. When I arrive to pick him up, he is almost always having fun and enjoying himself.
Another thing that I like about the center is the fact that the lead teacher in my son’s room, Ms Ericka, talks to me at drop-off most mornings about what Henry likes to do during the day, what they are working on with him, and how he is doing overall. I appreciate that she takes the time to do this, and that we are able to work on things – such as encouraging him to hold his own bottles or drink out of a sippy cup – as a team.
The final thing that I will mention is that I whenever I have had a question, an issue, or a request, it has been addressed. As a first time parent, there have been many times when I’ve been anxious about one thing or another – about illness, how my child is napping, etc. Whenever I have brought up an issue to the director or to the staff in the infant room, it has been resolved to my satisfaction, and I appreciate this.
