Testimonials from our parents!
Jenny R: We are so grateful to have found Le Parc Place. Our son has been in daycare since he was an infant, but only joined the LPP family when he had just turned 2.5yo (over a year ago), and the improvement in his communication skills and understanding of the world around him was almost immediately noticeable. The teachers are all extraordinary. They are patient and kind and loving, while still setting boundaries.
Another thing I love is the classroom space itself. It's a big, wide open area with smaller classrooms all around the edges. There's more airflow, and doesn't feel cramped like some daycares. They provide a lunch program at a very reasonable price if you opt in, as well as music class 1x a week (all year round), soccer lessons 1x a week (seasonal), and dance & yoga class (discontinued since the pandemic but hoping it comes back soon!). We feel so lucky that our son can take all of these classes during school hours, rather than after school or on weekends.
Through the pandemic they have gone above and beyond by keeping up instruction via Zoom until they were clear to open again. We opted to go back to in-person learning, but they still maintained virtual classes for parents who didn't feel safe. They established safety guidelines for those of us returning to in-person, held meetings with the parents so we could express our concerns and feel confident in each other's safety protocols. They've been such a great gift to us, we can't say enough nice things about them.
Laura C: My son started at Le Parc Place when he turned 2.5 years old. It's a close-knit smaller daycare, where the teachers are incredibly passionate not just about teaching the kids but supporting them in becoming kind and compassionate people. We are very happy with our experience at the school and look forward to our younger son starting there in a year!
Meg K: Great day care with wonderful staff. They have managed through the pandemic swimmingly and I am so impressed with how much they inform parents of what's going on and how they stick to ensuring the safety of the children who attend. On a personal note, our son, before attending LPP, was a shy little guy who was happier playing on his own than with other kids. Since going to LPP, he has cracked out of his shell and now has a group of friends, and performs weekly for the school. I feel that he is ready for kindergarten, thanks to the amazing staff and teachers at LPP.
Meg K: We love Le Parc Place! Both of my kids have gone there and love it. A wonderful, colorful, warm, and fun atmosphere. My little one asks me to go to school even on the weekends. Kids are involved in numerous activities, including music, art, and sports. Great location right in the middle of Maplewood just a minute from the train station.
I love receiving daily videos and photos of my kids and seeing what they are up to during the day. They have been very supportive and understanding when potty training my children and are open to discussing any behavioral issues that may arise.
Overall a great experience. We will miss LPP when it's time for my youngest to head off to Kindergarten.
Meredith R: My three year old recently started at Le Parc Place and absolutely loves it. He cries on the weekends because he can't go to school. The teachers are incredibly caring and attentive. I'm always so impressed with the activities and projects I see them doing. He comes home with the cutest artwork. The school feels very organized and offers an app that you can use to check in on your kids or see photos etc. W are very happy we found this school!
