My daughters have both attended Carpe Diem for the past several years. I chose Carpe Diem because they provided high teacher to student ratios, and a curriculum that explores various learning methods. They study spanish and music each day, and have a variety of creative ways to teach beyond going through workbooks. The teachers are caring and attentive, and my kids have looked forward to going to school.
My older daughter went to kindergarten well prepared and we have found her to be ahead of other students her age. We feel the school treats us like family.
The school may be more expensive than some, but I felt our children were worth the investment, and the school, it's teachers and the teaching methods proved the cost to be well worth the benefits!
