What Parents say...
My boys loved their time at Apex! The teachers at this school love the students and it is evident in the way the children are cared for. We were kept up to date with our children’s activities daily and sometimes we were sent pictures. Our boys have learned numerous adorable songs and stories and both have learned to recognize letters and numbers. The other day, while we were eating lunch, my five year old said, “I know a lot of stuff, I know numbers, the fruit of the spirit, and lots of stuff about Jesus….I can write my name too.” Thank you Apex, for helping us to instill confidence, and values in my boys.
Our son has really learned so much and has only been attending since September. We have been really impressed with Apex. The staff and teachers are also wonderful!
I used to work as a teacher in a daycare before for a year so when I was choosing the day care for my kids I was very picky…this daycare is amazing!!! Clean ..,all teachers are super nice an very well educated…! I love this place
As a new mom, I was worried about the care of my new baby once I went back to work. However, once I met with the Apex Academy staff and teachers and took a tour of the facility, I knew that my baby would be in good hands! The infant room teachers are beyond amazing! They are loving to each and every baby and are so excited to see them each day. They take the extra time to listen to your concerns and instructions, and work hard to make it the best experience for each baby. Thank you Apex for all you do!
- My daughter has attended Apex since she was 18 months old. She is now 4 and has learned more than I would have ever expected she would at a daycare. She knows all about Jesus and what he does for us and that just makes my heart happy! I know that the curriculum Apex teaches, along with Spanish and music classes, will have my daughter beyond prepared for kindergarten when that day comes. We are very blessed to have all of the teachers and directors that impact my daughter’s life with their passion for teaching. Apex is absolutely wonderful and I am so happy I chose to trust them with the most important person in my life.
The best childcare facility out there. When it comes to hiring teachers that love babies, this is by far the best place to trust your little one. All of the teachers in the infant room are incredible. My 10 month-old was terrified of other people and it was hard when I first put her in day care. Ms. Mae was so loving to her that she really gets excited to see her every day. I have visited many day cares to find the right one and found that the people at Apex just make you feel good about leaving your baby there
Apex is a fantastic facility in every way. We’ve had our son there since he was around six weeks old and have never had any cause for concern. He has always been happy, loved, and well educated throughout the entire day. They always let us know what’s going on and constantly have many enriching activities for him. I cannot recommend Apex enough!
We were fortunate to find such a great place to take our daughter to! I tell everyone I know with kids about our wonderful school family and how great it is!
