Small Beginnings has been great to our boys. The teachers love them and take great care of them. The administrative team are very warm and I feel comfortable asking them anything and having open conversations. Great school!

Tiffany M. 5 stars - Excellent

My daughter attended since she was 3 months and is now 22 months. The ONLY reason we left is because we moved and it has become too far of a drive for us. Everyone has loved our daughter from the very first day and I have just been amazed at how much one can learn at such a young age! This school is simply the best!!!

Teknika B. 5 stars - Excellent

My daughter has been attending Canterbury for 14 months and my son now attends as well. I have loved this school from the very beginning! My daughter is always so excited to go to school and tells me all about get day when we get home. I love that she is actually learning things and enjoys it! They are definitely preparing her for kindergarten! Her teacher is the sweetest woman and obviously loves her job. The entire staff is incredible! We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here, I can’t wait to see my son grow up here

Desire 5 stars - Excellent

Our oldest son began Canterbury at five months. He is now three and a half and attends Canterbury five days a week. He has made great friends and we are constantly thrilled and impressed by all that he is learning at school. As working parents, we only have a few hours at night with the kids and knowing that both our three year old and one year old receive balanced curriculum and structure in a nurturing setting throughout the day allows us to enjoy free time and play at night before bed. We recommend Canterbury with the highest regard!
