I wish I could give 10 stars! We started at St. David’s many years ago when my oldest son entered the ECE program. I had some developmental concerns and asked our teacher to keep an eye on them. As a result, we began OT and other services. Everything was well coordinated and well done. When we finished Pre-K, we were able to start Kindergarten on the right foot with the right resources in place. The intervention, services and ECE program are the foundations to my son’s current success.

I have been thrilled with our experience in St. David's Center's Early Childhood Education program thus far! My son is learning so much and has amazing stories of friendship, learning, exploration, and so much more everyday! From roller-skating to building to exploring nature to learning new languages, we couldn't be happier with how he is spending his days! Thank you to the one-of-a-kind staff at St. David's Center!

Our family was blessed to have 3 of our 4 children go to St. David's Center's Early Childhood Education program. What a life changing experience to have our children engaged in a program that honors children for who they are and meets them where they are at. My only regret is I didn't send my oldest child to this outstanding center that truly is a leading expert in the field.

St. David's Center staff are incredibly knowledgeable about early childhood development. My child's teachers have always been so caring and understanding with all of the children they interact with. It takes kind, patient, and understanding people to work with young children. I am so grateful to send my child to a childcare center that values inclusivity of children of all abilities, not to mention that it has many other services available (all in one place) should my child need them. As a first time parent, I couldn't be more appreciative of the caring and support of my child's teachers, the program leadership, and the organization as a whole.

My daughter began preschool at St. David's Center at 18 months of age and just ended at 5 years old. We loved each year she was at school. She developed amazing friendships that are still ongoing with play dates and as a parent I was able to feel connected with other families. I loved that the focus of this preschool is around play and relationships. The teachers are spectacular and have a unique way of allowing each child to grow and shine in their individual way. They were always positive, shared fun stories and had smiles on their faces. My daughter would share fun stories when she came home from school. This is a special place and it was so sad for us to have to say goodbye once my daughter started Kindergarten.

We've had two children at St. David's Center, and we couldn't be happier. Both children were in the ECE program. Both children are typically developing, but because the teachers work with children of all abilities, they are experts in child development. They are so warm and nurturing with my children, and I have been so impressed the way they support my children and others when they are going through a difficult moment or struggling. They value the unique personalities of each child. I have experienced 3 other childcare settings with my children, and St. David's is by far the best!
