Westerville Daycare and Preschool Review

It really doesn't look like much on the outside compared to La Pettite or KinderCare, and it is difficult to find - so we almost passed this school up - but I was very pleased with my experience here. My two children (infant room and 3-year-old room) spent 8 months at The Learning Center and loved their teachers. The infant room the formula and wipes were provided, the teachers were especially nice, offered us "abandoned" clothes, and my daughter loved her care taker. My 3-year-old really learned a lot, including his numbers (in order, before they were random), alphabet, days of the week, and months - he also learned some very cute songs that I hadn't heard before. Their price is very reasonable too if you're paying out of pocket.

Daycare and Preschool in Westerville Ohio

We just started taking our 3 1/2-year and our 22-month-old daughters to the Learning Center. The price is very affordable and the staff is friendly. The building and playground are not spectacular, but my girls are learning and having fun each day and that is what really matters. In the short time that my 3 1/2-year-old has been going, she has learned a lot. Every day she surprises me with something new and I am incredibly grateful the staff is taking good care of my girls. The meals are better than what we have previously experienced with another daycare. I would recommend the Westerville Learning Center to other parents who are searching for quality affordable daycare!
