I am so very grateful to Big Birds Playhouse. I have my 5 year old daughter there now. Initially, it was very difficult for me to find the best preschool for my daughter and then one of my friends recommended this school, whos daughter attended the same preschool.
I have to say that it is the best preschool in Staten Island. The facility of the school is very well kept for the children and my daughter adjusted quite well to the teachers and the other fellow students. The owner as well as the whole staff of the school is very humble and supportive. The classes have the exact student- teacher ratio, which is necessary in every preschool. The teachers are amazingly loving and caring who loved my daughter like their own.

The school is truly dependable and my daughter had the most amazing experience at Big Birds Playhouse. She received a positive social learning environment that helped her make significant improvements. I just cant thank everyone there enough, the staff, the teachers and the owner for helping my child to grow academically as well as socially. The school has provided an incredible foundation for my daughters future success.

I recommend this school to all my friends.

Excellent school for childrens early education. I highly recommend it!

Before Big Bird Playhouse, I never knew teachers could be so understanding and cooperating. But, here teachers daily communicate with me about my daughter Kellys day, her behavior, and education. Now I dont worry about what Kelly is doing at preschool or if she is getting proper education since I already know that. Big Bird Playhouse - Highly recommended!

When I was looking for a preschool in Staten Island, their far locations, high fees, and dirty settings had me worried sick about my sons early education. I was able to breathe a sigh of relief only after I finalized Big Bird Playhouse. They have safe and comfortable environment along with experienced teachers. I cant be happier after seeing happy and thriving Luke (my son) enjoying his days at preschool.

My daughters health was my biggest concern when I decided to enrolled her in a day care. But Big Bird Playhouse eased up all my worries. Here they provide nutritious snacks and hot lunch. Daily organized games and activities keep Serena fit and active. Keep up the good work!

I would definitely recommend Big Bird Playhouse to the parents of Staten Island. I visited several preschools before finalizing Big Bird Playhouse. They offer comfortable environment and safe setting. Teachers are very understanding and kind. My twins enjoy every second of their time here. Every day, they come home with newly learned words and stories. Highly recommended!

What impressed me most about the Big Bird Playhouse was its small class size and warm teachers. My 3-year old son Christopher learnt many quality skills from this preschool that will greatly help him in his future. I was also happy with regular feedback that the school provided. Definitely a nice place!

I saw immense improvements in my son soon after he went to Big Bird Playhouse. Andy spent more than 10 months in this preschool. I was highly satisfied with the personalized care offered by the warm and caring staff of the preschool. Will definitely recommend them to others!

My 2-year old daughter Laura went to Big Bird Playhouse for about 10 months. I was little nervous in early days of her preschool, but all my anxieties disappeared when I noticed that Laura was not just enjoying her preschool, but was developing new skills as well. I was highly impressed with their certified staff and curriculum with a variety of activities. Highly recommended!

Best summer camp! Both my children go to Big Bird Playhouse summer camp. Every year they spend summers participating in fun and learning activities at summer camp. My best friends daughter also started attending this summer camp after my recommendation. I suggested this school to all my other friends too.

Small class size and healthy food was my first priority when I started looking for preschool for my daughter. Big Bird Playhouse have it all. My kid gets proper attention from teacher, She learns new alphabets, words, numbers, and plants names at school. Now I can stop worrying about her preparations for kindergarten.

My son Liam is 18 months old and has been spending quality time at the Big Bird Playhouse. I was highly impressed with the wealthy environment of the school along with the wide range of activities that they had in their curriculum. It is definitely a great place for kids to learn new skills and build a base for their future.

My 7 years old daughter attended Big Bird Playhouse. I can see the results of education she got in this school. She is getting good grades in elementary school and teachers are very happy with her good behavior. My younger daughter is also going to Big Bird Playhouse. Every day, she comes home with a smile on her face and blabs about the new things she learns in school. This is the perfect school for your child if you understand the importance of early

Our child was at Big Bird Playhouse for about 5 months and it turned out to be a pleasant event for all of us. I was little worried about the food earlier, but thumb up for their quality food and teachers ensured that she was happy and participated in every activity. Thanks and cheers.

We started sending our daughter Alice to Big Birds Play House after she turned 20 months old. I dont have enough words in which I could express my gratitude for this academy. Initially she was dealing with a little separation anxiety, but the staff is so caring, that now she loves to spend time here.

Great place for your kids to be. Both my kids have been going to Big Birds since 2004. The facility is clean and neat, the teachers are consistent, honest and compassionate. My kids come home with homework done and have always told me big birds a great way to end their day after the stress of school.

My two daughters age 5 and age 3 both attend Big Bird. They have been there since they were 15 months old. I have to say the teachers at Big Bird truly care for the children. My two children love going there and every morning look forward to seeing their teachers and friends. My older daughter attended Pre-K with Miss Julie and now I feel she is prepared for kindergarten this year. Miss Julie has given my daughter the foundation to succeed in kindergarten this year. Both of my kids attended summer camp and they do many fun activities with the children and teach the children how to socialize with other children. I will continue to send my younger daughter here because I feel she will learn alot and be well prepared for kindergarten in two more years. I definitely recommend this school because there are teachers here who truly care for each and every child.

My 2 1/2 year old son has been attending the daycare program since he was 7 months old, and my 10 1/2 year old daughter has been attending the summer camp and after school program since she was 8, so I've been with the school for three years.

My experience has been very positive! My son started out in the infant room with Ms. Roe - who goes above and beyond for the babies in her care. She is very warm and gives all of the babies a lot of attention, care and love. At the end of each day I would get an itemized list of when he had a bottle and how many ounces he consumed, what he ate, when he was changed, etc. Prior to enrolling my son I struggled with the thought of sending an infant to daycare, however Ms. Roe and her constant communication made me feel very comfortable!

After his first birthday, my son was moved to the toddler room with Ms. Laurie and Ms. Michelle. They were excellent! They had constant reinforcement of the building blocks of learning - they would go over the colors, shapes, and ABCs daily - and my son would always come home singing nursery songs. They were very festive and would have celebrations for holidays, birthdays, etc. In the few instances where he would fall ill under their care, I would find him in one of their arms as if he was their own child!

Now my son is in the 2 year old room with Ms. Margret - and again, I couldn't be happier with the experience. The program is very well-structured - every morning they have circle time where one student gets to hold the flag and they all sing "God Bless America" (yes, my son can now sing "God Bless America" on his own without missing a beat) and they go over the alphabet, colors, shapes, etc. They also do daily projects which come home every day (many of which are inspired by professional paintings) and colorfully adorn my family room walls. During the summer they have outdoor play time - and one of the key factors in my decision to enroll my kids in Big Bird's was how well organized the indoor AND outdoor play areas are - each group has their own fenced play areas with age appropriate toys and rides. My son has learned so much in these past few years, and I'm very excited to continue to see his growth at Big Bird's.

My daughter loves the summer camp and looks forward to attending every year. The school bus leaves at 9am and doesn't return to the camp until 4pm - they have well-planned trips (i.e. Museum of Natural History, Aquarium, Turtle Back Zoo, Medieval Times, etc.) as well as weekly outings to the bowling alley, movies, park, etc. After hours they come back to the premises where they have their own designated areas to partake in arts and crafts projects and other games. There is never a dull moment! The same goes for the after school program.

Another important factor for me has been DIVERSITY. Our family is multi-racial and multi-ethnic, and the high level of diversity at Big Bird's has been a breath of fresh air for me as a mother. You will find all colors of the rainbow, followers of all faiths, and differing family dynamics here.

To address some of the complaints - when I read that someone said that it was filthy, I couldn't believe it. Every evening there is a cleaning crew that comes in and disinfects the entire campus (I usually bump into them as I pick up my kids!).

The campus is under intense surveillance, and it's even rumored that the Director has access to the security cameras from her house when she isn't on site. I've never needed to reach her and not been able to, and she is omni-present whenever I drop my kids off in the morning.

Big Bird's has become a second home for my kid's and it's staff a second family to us. As a working mother, it's been a blessing.

Big Bird's has become a second home for my kid's and it's staff a second family to us. As a working mother, it's been a blessing.

Dear lord I hope the allegations are not true. However it is sad how one man can ruin someones reputation as a school. I feel so bad for all the employes and the owner of Big Bird Playhouse for having to deal with this, my son and daughter
