The staff is excellent and caring towards each student!! The kiddos learn from the Canturbury curriculum and are able to be a couple steps ahead once kindergarten starts up at a different school. When our kids are dropped off, I know that they are at a safe place. Staff and administration has always worked closely with us if questions or concerns arose.

Ronald I. 5 stars - Excellent

We’ve now had three children at Canterbury and cannot say enough good things! Our teachers have been incredible, and we feel our kids have a wonderful experience each day regardless of their age. In fact, our infant son gets so excited to see his teacher that he kicks his legs and giggles. I can’t ask for more!

We started at Canterbury after having a terrible experience at another facility. The staff has been absolutely wonderful. They have been patient and kind to my son, which was not the case at the previous facility. They are open to working with us as parents to tackle any issues our son may have. They create a fun, energetic, imaginative environment and our son is very happy here.

Samantha L. 5 stars - Excellent

We feel very fortunate to have had Canterbury schools educate our daughter. She has grown into an intelligent, caring, and considerate individual due in no small part to the influence of Canterbury. The curriculum in the classroom provides the structure and stimulation our daughter needs to thrive, while also allowing time for free play to discover new skills and solve problems independently. Our daughter is challenged at Canterbury to move beyond her current abilities and learn at the next level, creating pride and self-value. The creativity in each Canterbury classroom inspires our daughter to explore art, music and her vast imagination outside of school. The compassion by her teachers creates a secure environment where she can build confidence in her behavior and know the opportunity exists to learn from her mistakes. The enthusiasm of the teachers is contagious. The lines of communication are always open. Information about lessons, evaluations, behavior, illnesses, and boo-boos are consistently provided in a responsible and respectful manner. The director’s door is always open. We truly could not be happier with Canterbury schools and their partnership with us to care for our daughter.
