This is the best pre-school/day care/summer camp in Rutherford area. We enrolled my daughter here for the summer camp and she loved it. Miss Giselle and Mr David operate this facility very efficiently and they treat all kids as their own. Very clean, nice staff and good value for money. Highly recommend it!!

This school has the most professional Faculty of any educational institution we have ever put our kids in. Not only do they maintain a healthy and balanced education for the children, they make it a fun environment where our kids never want to leave and are excited to go to school every morning. I recommend anybody that can travel to bring their children here all year-round.

We couldn't be happier with the attention and care our 2 boys receive at this center. We moved from Europe and adapting the kids to the English language is a challenge the whole team of teachers has helped us a lot. My older one is going the Kidergarten Center now but they still pick him up for the aftercare program. This is a great place with lots of TLC for our kids. Also the price is Great!

Both my children (preschool and afterschool) go to LearnSmart. The school director, Ms. Yiselle, is an effective communicator and replies promptly to inquires. The entire staff are caring and professional. I feel at ease knowing my children are here when I have to be at work.

(Translated by Google) This place has been a blessing for me as a mother, because I know that my children are well taken care of. The teachers and the director are very kind, have experience and are always aware of the children. They help them with homework and have fun activities appropriate for their age. And they do not give them trinkets to eat, but the snacks are very healthy. I totally recommend this daycare. (Original) Este lugar ha sido una bendición para mí como mamá, pues sé que mis hijos están bien cuidados. Los profesores y la directora son muy amables, tienen experiencia y siempre están pendientes de los niños. Les ayudan con las tareas y tienen actividades divertidas y apropiadas para su edad. Y no les dan chucherías para comer, sino que los snacks son bien saludables. Totalmente recomiendo este daycare.
