Very unprofessional by Melissa G via Insider Pages on 5/21/2015

Changing by donna b via Insider Pages on 8/22/2008

My son has been going to Children's PlayHouse since he was 2 years old. He really enjoyed it up until this past summer camp. I noticed myself the change in the school and it's a shame. My son would tell me he didn't want to go to camp…

Advance was misinformed by Lauren L via Insider Pages on 6/3/2008

Mrs. Fox is an honest, hardworking director. The money made out to herself was only done AFTER she paid her employees out of her own pocket. I've attended the school, summer camp, and have grown up to work at the camp itself after the…

My son is having a great experience and learning a lot. by JILL F via Insider Pages on 2/13/2008

I have read the reviews about the pre-school posted by other people on here. I have to say that I really don't care about the money that the owner is paying herself or the aide that she has gotten from the state that she used. Anyone that…

Wonderful Daycare and school by Pauline T via Insider Pages on 1/29/2008

My 2 children were both there for 10 years combined. My daughter is now 10 and my son is 5. They both did extremely well at Children's Playhouse from infants to UPK. It does seem that the most complaints are from the strictly UPK parents…

Money, money, money! by Barbara E via Insider Pages on 4/14/2007

This school is great on the surface, but after having my infant son enrolled here, I found out that it wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Basically, the money is all this school is concerned with. My son's health became second priority…

Disappointed by George P via Insider Pages on 3/26/2007
