I have volunteered at this preschool many times while in college and while looking for a teaching position. I feel that the teachers are very knowledgeable and caring towards the children.
The children all seem to enjoy the learning activities and play time that they are given. The animals are great! This is one of the few preschools anywhere that have actual farm animals!! This is one of the drawing features for many families is the hands-on experiences that it provides to children of a variety of farm animals.
I would recommend that anyone enroll their child in this program!
I visited this wedding shop prior to my own wedding. I felt that the selection was not very great. I had a picture of the wedding gown that I wanted to order. They would not help me to find that particular gown. They told me it could not be found!! They also said that 6 months was not enough time to special order a gown, that I would need to just pick a store gown and have it altered!!
I was very disappointed in the customer service I received at this store. I went to a different wedding shop and found the gown I wanted and they could order it in less than 6 months, plus have time for alterations!
I would not recommend visiting this shop unless you plan to purchase a gown that they have available in the store.
I enjoy visiting Ray Edwards Swimming Pool frequently during the summer! The pool is large, has great accomodations (snack bar, waterslide, mini gold, etc).
I also highly recommend the swimming lessons at this location! I have signed my niece and nephew up for swimming lessons since they were toddlers. The swimming instructors at this location are wonderful! They are very knowledgeable about teaching young children to swim. They are also very creative in the ways they teach swimming (the games and activities that help to teach the skills). My niece was terrified of water, but her instructor did such a great job that it was hard to pull her out of the pool by the end of the summer!
I highly recommend visiting this swimming pool!
I feel that the Cedar Falls Rec Dept. is a wondeful establishment! Great strives have been made recently to update this building and provide the public with many more opportunities.
I love walking on their track. I also enjoy using their weight rooms. I always see young kids and families enjoying the basketball courts each time I am there.
Customer service is wondeful! Many times, I was greeted by name, even when I only went once a week! Wow!
Price for membership is also very reasonable. You could never find a gym that offers the same equipment for less than this cost (and many would cost MUCH MORE!).
I worked at this place for a year during college, and after that my niece and nephew attended preschool for 3 years each.
When I worked here, I felt that the preschool programs were adequate. However, I felt that there were too many infants for each infant to receive quality care. I would personally, NEVER leave an infant in a place that is caring for that many at a time, regardless of their infant-to-adult ratio! I felt that the only care that was provided to the infants was to feed, change, and put back in the crib to start on the next infant.
I was involved a lot while my niece and nephew attended preschool. I felt that my niece received a good preschool experience. However, they were unable to deal with my nephew. I feel that the staff people were not experienced or trained well enough to deal with a "challenging" child.
Use your best judgement and visit several times before considering enrolling your child at this daycare.
This salon was recommended to me prior to my wedding several years ago. My friend, who recommended it, had gone here for years! I was so very impressed with the service that I received on that day.
The stylist listened to my thoughts about my hairstyle. She added in her own thoughts based on her expertise. We worked together to go with a style that fit my hair cut and that fit my personal taste. I was so impressed with the way it turned out.
I was also impressed with how gentle the stylist was. I have very long hair, and usually it hurts when it is styled. There was not a single "tug" or "snag" in my hair while she was doing the styling!
I recommend this salon to anyone!
I have shopped at Lindale Mall for many years. When I was growing up, we would travel to Cedar Rapids from Cedar Falls just to go shopping. I currently live in Cedar Rapids and still enjoy browsing at this mall. My two favorites stores are no longer at this mall, unfortunately. I used to love looking at Paws and Claws pet store that closed up many years ago. I also enjoyed the Disney store that closed a few years ago. I have not found a new "favorite", but I do enjoy many of the stores.
There are a lot of specialty stores that personally, I don't tend to buy much from. However, it is a lot of fun to just browse with friends at this mall.
Their food court is wonderful! There is a restaurant for everyone's taste when you are with a group of people!
I highly recommend going to this mall to shop! More than likely, you will find your own favorite stores too!
I have visited this church several times as I am trying to find a new church after relocating. This church has a nice atmosphere. It seems to be a comfortable size (not so big that nobody knows who you are, and not so small that there aren't enough activities, etc).
The people seemed very friendly and encouraged us to join this church. I like that we weren't ignored...many places that I have gone and do not know anyone, I've felt ignored by the congregation. This congregation was very friendly, talkative, and welcoming! We felt like a part of this church family from the very moment we entered the doors!
This is a wonderful library! I can always find many books when I visit there (too many books!).
They have a large selection of all types of books, audio books, vcr/dvd movies, and magazines. They are also very willing to inter-library loan materials that they do not have.
I also like that the youth department is away from the other areas. Small children tend to be very noisy, and it is nice to not have to worry about children bothering other patrons when you are visiting the library. The youth department is also bright and colorful and very engaging to young children!
I have been a member of this bank for over 20 years! This is the bank that I went with for my first Kirby savings account, my first car loan, and our first home loan.
Their loan rates are great! You can't find better. The customer service is also wonderful! The employees are always willing to help out in any way possible.
I highly recommend this bank for any adult or child! Over the years, they really serve you well!
