My two girls love coming to school! The teachers refer to the students in their class as "friends," which I love. The school also recently started this great program that brings in additional, volunta...ry activities (kiddie soccer, tumbling, dance) so that the she could try a new sport / activity short-term, within the context of the free period of the day, so I know whether or not it is a hobby should would enjoy pursuing outside of school. The facility is clean, bright, and engage the kids in school-wide crafts and competitions for the holidays I can tell my oldest loves working on her class's contribution, because every time I walk in the door, she will point out her class's themed jack-o-lantern or gingerbread house!

The Learning Garden is a wonderful daycare with amazing staff that truly love their job! When the staff are happy the children are happy! The facility is clean, and the staff are patient and pleasant!... We have been at this daycare for a total of 8 years. The daycare got a new owner and a new name, which was the best thing for this daycare. The new owner gave the building a facelift and all the fantastic teachers stayed! This school prepares these kids academically and emotionally, and I know that because I’m a local kindergarten teacher that enrolls many kids from this school! I’m happy to say they are ready for kindergarten when they leave this school! My 4 year old is on his last year at this school and everyday he begs to stay longer! This school and staff are exactly what you want for a daycare!!!! See More

My girls love Learning Garden Academy! We come from a surrounding town and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The staff has become like family and truly care for my daughters like their own. Ms. Annie..., Ms. Magie and Ms. Barbara are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. Every teacher and staff member has been instrumental in the (academic and emotionally) growth of my girls. The offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities, field trips, and bring in a lot of great programs in that only enhance student learning. One of my daughters favorites is Tumble Bus. My oldest is not only becoming kindergarten ready but her teacher (Ms. Rachel) has implemented a “mindfulness” and yoga component to the classroom which we are loving! We even use it at home and have seen amazing results with her. Most importantly, I feel beyond safe (which is super important to me) leaving my girls in the hands of such a CARING and COMPETENT staff. Go check it out! See More

Having moved to New Jersey and not knowing the area very well, I was very thorough and picky when finding a learning center. Both of my sons attend LGA and we absolutely love it! One in the infant roo...m and one in preschool. I'm amazed at how much my three year old has learned from their curriculum. I have no doubts he'll be ready for kindergarten in a few short years. Every single teacher is kind and nuturing. The structure provided for the kids is exactly what they need. The new owner is absolutely delightful and has brought some refreshing ideas and upgrades to the center. I highly recommend LGA to all parents! See More

My toddler goes here and I'm happy to say that I've always felt that the women who run this center genuinely care about both the childrens needs and the parents as well. They are also exposing my dau...ghter to lots of different types of activities, which I love. See More

I can't say enough about how amazing our experience has been. We have had our daughter there since she was a little over 3 months old and she is now with the 2-3's and she absolutely loves it...not o...nly does she love it, the structure and education she is already getting is priceless. New owner seems super nice & is interested on making it an even better experience for kids, Maggie who runs show is incredibly good at her job & the tone starts at the top, and the Teachers/Teacher Aid's love my child like she were their own...LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!

Both of my sons have gone here from when they were infants. One is currently still attending, the other until he started Kindergarten in September 2016. They are fantastic! Each and every teacher w...e have had has been warm, loving, enthusiastic, and genuinely vested in my boys. The curriculum is amazing. I can't believe how much my 2 year old knows and the pre-k more then prepares them for Kindergarten. He left reading writing and doing math. He tells me Kindergarten is boring now! Go take a look you will not be disappointed! See More

An amazing video to watch with your kids! 👏 "Figuring out how and what you're feeling is particularly challenging when you’re feeling things like rage, sadness, disgust, and confusion for the first time. Sometimes... the best thing to do is just breathe."

We all live, first and foremost, on the inside of our human bodies. But that doesn’t mean that rich inner life we all have doesn’t project itself outward into the everyday world. Quite the opposite…
