This place is not worth the money. If you want a glorified day care that will not only lie to you, but will go out of the way to not talk to you about your child then this is the place for you! They tell the teachers to not talk to parents because the parents might pull their children out. The Director of this school is an absolute joke! She lies about what the kids eat for lunch which is not only petty, but somewhat of a crime. The school often uses uneducated teachers (I must say some of the teachers are good, but the goods ones do not stay), moves teachers around at will, sends lead teachers home at will, underpays her staff, has an extremely bad track record of student to teacher ratios, will listen in on parent teacher conversations with the classroom speaker. To top it all off, 8 teachers in 1 year! Wow! Is that a hiring problem or a teacher problem? Not that it matters, 8 teachers means you have something wrong with management. If you get a teacher you like don't get comfortable, the teachers are on a rotation so your child may never have the same teacher. Please don't believe anything the director says! It is her goal in life to make you feel comfortable and then give your child the worst education possible! Never heard of Ms. Denise so I have no idea what the bottom review is saying. Avoid this school at all costs! It needs to be shut down! Don't be fooled by the cameras as a lure to think your child will blossom. About the only positive side to this school is that it appears to be clean and has cameras, though the teachers will often beg to differ on both fronts. Apparently the director will let things grow mold in the ceiling before taking action. And the cameras are used to monitor teachers to make sure they don't talk to parents about anything negative. Without a doubt avoid this school! If a parent says something positive about this school they are obviously not connected with reality.

Horrible school, especially for the price. We were constantly being told that our child was "not adapting" and "acting out" on a daily basis, but then his daily reports stated that he had an "awesome day" and was "super today." Huh? There is a lack of communication between the teachers and the director, and between the teachers and parents. During drop-off in the morning the regular teacher would not be in the room and during pick-up in the evening the regular teacher would not be there, so you never have a chance to see how your child's day really went. You must pack your child's lunch every day - cold - there in no microwave (although, I'm sure they do, but are too lazy to take the time to warm it). They advertise that they provide milk and water, but my child would come home with the same juice in his cup that it was filled with in the morning before leaving the house. Your child will spend over half of their day on a playground (without sunblock) and thirsting to death because they are too cheap to re-fill your child's sippy cup. Your child will rarely bring home artwork and when they do it will be another child's. There is no real consistency in the day, nor in the ??curriculum.? All-in-all, this facility wants to be a real school quite badly, but just cannot pull it off.

I looked at a lot of schools in the area and Cambridge by far
was the best choice for me. Its safe alarm??s on all doors security codes it get in and no one gets passed the front desk without being greeted. Their very well organized, TV monitors of the class rooms are viewed at lobby /front desk . The web cameras are great,my family all live out of town it??s the only way they can see the kids sometimes.I don??t worry as much I can check on them at anytime. I can see how they play with others, their moods that day.
Cambridge looks very clean and it
Is, my kids rarely get sick.
The curriculum is excellent, I receive a progress report every few months ,I??m always updated on what they are learning or need help with.
I have 2 children attending Cambridge now.
My son started in the 2 yr old class with Ms.Denise
and we feel grateful to have had her as a teacher for the last three years.The children responds really well to her and love her, My son can??t wait to tell Ms Denise and his friends what he did over the weekend.I feel she, as well
as everyone there are a part of our family now.
My daughter is in the 2 yr old class now and she loves it as well. Some days it??s hard to get her to leave at end of the day...
Bottom line I??m confident my children are safe ,well cared for making friends ,getting a good education and have fun doing it.
This is my son's last year there ,I hate to see him go.

My 3-year-old currently attends this school and my 5-year-old is a graduate. I wouldn't send my children anywhere else!! I have always felt like my girls were safe and loved at Cambridge. My oldest was so well-prepared for school that she's now at the top of her class and my youngest will be no different. They have an excellent curriculum and a professional, caring staff. I LOVE the internet cameras, which is what originally stood out when I had to leave my then 2-year-old in someone else's care. I at least knew I could "check on" her regularly. And every door is tied into a security system that sounds an alarm when opened. I looked at several preschools and Cambridge was by far the safest, cleanest and most organized of all of them. My girls both have great positive first experiences with preschool, which I believe has paved the way for continued academic success. My 3-year-old is a picky eater & refuses to eat vegetables at home but eats them every day at Cambridge for lunch. The powers of peer pressure! She has healthy, hot lunches everyday, which is a huge relief to me. On top of all this, Cambridge has made my girls feel special, with their parties, shows and ceremonies: there are so many great memories here! I love the annual Trunk-or-Treat event & when my kindergartner graduated, the ceremony was spectacular! This school feels like family and we'll be sad to say goodbye next year. But THANK YOU for your huge part in shaping my girls into who they are today!
