We have reached the end of another wonderful year at the Ladybug Playhouse.  My second child will graduate Pre-K completely ready for kindergarten thanks to the hard work and dedication of all the teachers.  My son started at The Ladybug Playhouse very shy and quiet, he has grown and developed wonderful social skills, made friends and is excited to talk about his day when he comes home.  Anyone looking for a safe, clean and fun environment for their child to to learn, can feel confident that the Ladybug Playhouse is the place for them.

My kids absolutely love going to school every day at the Ladybug Playhouse. The staff is warm and genuinely care about the well being of each child.  My eldest went there last year and always wants to visit.  They truly foster a love of learning and an appreciation for nurturing friendships.

Both my school aged children are at Ladybug.  My daughter started at 2 1/2 and my son almost 2.  They are both very happy there and I have no complaints.  My children are well cared for and treated very well every day.  The teachers are well educated and enthusiastic.  My son and daughter have learned so much over the years they've been at Ladybug.  I am more than confident that my daughter is more than well prepared for kindergarten in September.  My son who has a late birthday has adjusted well to school.Both my kids enjoy school to the fullest.  The school is peanut-free which is a comfort considering my son has a peanut allergy.

Ladybug was the perfect fit for our 3 year old's first school experience.  The teachers and staff made the transition smooth and stress free.  Each day he would come home happy and beyond excited to share his creative and hands-on projects he made at school.  We would also receive a daily recap of his day from his teacher Ms. Alyssa.  Ladybug proviided a great balance of academics and socialization.  Their facility is engaging from their interactive smart board to their awesome play area, it has it all!  We are looking forward to a wonderful Pre-k year at Ladybug next year!

Everyone is very nice and teachers make themselves available.  My child's graduating pre-k and I am confident she is more than prepared for kindergarten. Great curriculum!

The Ladybug Playhouse has mastered the task of balancing fun and education for all Preschoolers in a nurturing and caring environment.  Their experienced staff administers a curriculum which has no doubt prepared our son for kindergarten.  The Director is flexible, cooperative, communicative, and very responsive to each child's needs, big or small. Co-Parenting takes place not babysitting.  the teachers and the staff are truly dedicated to caring for and developing each child as an individual.  We have no doubt the Ladybug Playhouse will continue to grow and expand as a leading nursery school for the North Shore Community.

I am so happy that I made the choice for my grandson to attend Ladybug 2 years ago.  He came in a very shy child and is leaving a well rounded 5 year old.  He knows his letters, numbers, colors, shapes, he can add and is starting to sound out words.  Tyler has also grown socially.  He has made wonderful friends.  The only down fall is he has to leave the wonderful teachers and aids.  Ms Antonieta, you will be truly missed along with Ms. Brenda, Ms. Tanya and his first teacher Ms. Ally.  Last but not least Ms. Liz who every morning is there to greet us with a smile and a kind word.  Thank you so much Andrea for opening such a wonderful school where my grandson has thrived.  It brings tears to my eyes as I write this.  We will miss Ladybug and love all of you!

I've noticed tremendous progress in my child.  She often uses "SAT" words that surprise me every time.  She's an excellent communicator and I'm certain that this, in large part, is due to her school.  I love that there is a structure and curriculum and they keep the parents informed.  I love the progress reports and teacher conferences twice yearly.  Most, importantly, my daughter loves school.  The teachers are all very nice, great at their jobs and certified.  The school is also very clean...visibly so.  We're very happy with The ladybug Playhouse!

Staff at the Ladybug are amazing.  My son started there 2 years ago when he was 2 and is moving up to kindergarten after the summer.  While he was there I always knew he's in excellent hands.  I never worried.  The teachers are caring and professional and very attuned to each child's individual needs.  My son has grown tremendously since the time he started-socially, academically and more.  The school is always clean inside and out.  The outdoor play area is huge.  They offer summer programs which incorporate water play and outdoor activities. Both my boys will be attending this summer.  My youngest will continue into the next school year.

My daughter's experience and education at The Ladybug Playhouse was excellent and worth the money.  The teachers and the staff were always professional and I was always informed of her progress and events.  The school was a Godsend for me and my daughter and it was the best decision to send her there. The teachers really made my daughter feel safe and happy and were always available if I had a question. She learned so much and really enjoyed learning and attending everyday.  She enjoyed school and this has set the foundation for the rest of her educational path.  This place was more than just a school it was like a second family that Breanna and I really needed.  I am so proud to say my daughter attended this school and we both will miss The Ladybug Playhouse!

My daughter loves her teachers and the staff at Ladybug is very professional.  The playground equipment is well cared for and there is a nice fenced in area for the children to play.  The children play outside often.  The school has a strong academic focus that benefits my daughter.  She has enjoyed learning her ABC's and 123's.

I have been with the Ladybug Playhouse since it opened.  Both of my children go there and they love it.  Not only do they have fun but they are learning a ton!  My son started when he was two years old and now he is graduating Pre-K.  He is so smart and has learned so much.  He can write all of his letters both uppercase and lowercase and is beginning to read simple words.  His teacher is amazing and really knows how to teach this age group.  He enjoys learning from her and comes home practicing what he learned that day.  I highly recommend this school.

My daughter has attended the Ladybug Playhouse very happily from age 3-5.  In that time she's grown and expanded in many ways; she has learned letters, numbers, sequencing, how to recognize and form patterns and her skills have grown from strength to strength.  She separated from me easily as a result of the wonderfully warm staff.  She loves them all.  I have no hesitation in recommending the Ladybug Playhouse if your looking for a happy, secure, supportive and very informative learning environment for your child.  They will make friends there.  Having also been present at many events they hold for the parents; Christmas, Easter, Mother & Father's day parties, fall parties and parent teacher conferences- As parents we've loved our time there too.

I am very pleased with the Ladybug Playhouse.  The organization is very impressive!  My son has a peanut allergy and I feel very comfortable leaving him there.  My daughter recently broke her leg and is in a wheel chair.  Everyone has been more than accommodating to us.  Everyone is kind and well trained, Ms. Ally and Ms. Stephanie are great teachers and are very loving to the children.  The curriculum is age appropriate and I am very pleased with everything both my children have learned.  The Ladybug Playhouse has exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend the school to anyone looking for a safe, loving, and clean atmosphere for their child.

My daughter had an incredible year at Ladybug!  She was excited every morning and happy every afternoon.  The mix of academics and play was a perfect balance and I am happy about how challenged she was everyday.  There was great individual attention given, and when she could move quicker than others she was met with a variety of new challenges.  When she needed extra TLC, she was met with warmth and loving teachers. She is more than ready to go to kindergarten.  A wonderful year!

My son has attended Ladybug for 6 months and what a difference compared to the previous school he attended for 15 months.  I was looking for a school whose focus was learning in a fun yet structured manner.  Andrea has created a relaxed positive environment for children which is evidenced by my son's new demeanor.  I appreciate how the staff allows the kids to be kids and not pressure parents to conform.  I am very pleased with my choice to send my son to Ladybug and look forward to Pre-k.

My daughter looks forward to going to Ladybug each day and comes home happy.  What more could a parent ask for.  She loves it!

Emma never gives me a hard time about going to school.  She is never reluctant to get out of the car and into the classroom.  The few times she was a little upset Ms. Tanya and or Ms. Kristen were right there to distract her.  The teachers never made me feel uncomfortable staying for an extra few minutes to ease her.  I look forward to the daily updates sent via email on snacks, potty times and activities.  The monthly newsletter is helpful for extending learning at home.  The school is always clean and pick up and drop off are safe.  Emma will be enjoying Ladybug for 4 weeks in the summer then again in September.  She has learned so much, counting, colors, ABC's and so much more!  Thanks!

My 2 1/2 year old daughter attends school at the Ladybug Playhouse 2 mornings a week and she loves it. I'm going to be sending her 3 mornings a week come the summer. Andrea and her team are terrific with the kids and teach them so much! My daughter counts to ten, knows her colors and her shapes! The facility is clean, neat, and new. It also is such an adorable place to be for a child to learn. The colors are vibrant, there are drawings on the walls and the actual "playhouse" has the cutest storefronts for the children to play in. The outdoor area is big, safe and has lots to do. I highly recommend The Ladybug Playhouse for a fun and exciting learning opportunity for your child.

For all those parents looking for a safe, fun, and exciting preschool experience for their loved little ones, I would like to recommend The Ladybug Playhouse. My 3 year old son is currently enrolled there and couldn't be happier!
Here are some reasons why we LOVE the Playhouse:
1. Everyone there is extremely kind and patient.
2. All the teachers are effective, lovely, attentive, and state certified.
3. The school is extremely clean, bright, and welcoming. The classrooms are conducive to learning.
Last but not least, the school offers a powerful learning experience, through the use of technology, and active learning. My son's teachers are very resourceful and creative. They effectively foster my son's learning growth. We are extremely satisfied with everything this preschool/nursery has to offer. :)

I was a little hesitant about sending my 2 year old off to school and wanted to make sure I wasn’t making a mistake. After the first week of class I knew I made the right choice. Ladybug Playhouse is a great, safe and clean place for kids to learn and have fun. The staff is excellent with all the children, all the teachers know the kids by name. The environment is happy and the lesson plans are exciting and new every day. Each day the teacher sends us detailed emails on what the kids did/ate/learned throughout the day. They have a large outdoor area which is great for kids to burn off energy. I am thrilled with all the progress my son made since he started just few months ago. I am so happy that I found this preschool.
