The teachers are PHENOMENAL! Ms. Bree, Ms. Jamie, Ms. Pat, Ms. Hope, and the rest of the staff are THE BEST! They are so caring, loving and amazing! Every morning my daughter would get ready for school by herself. (Even on the weekends she would get up at 7:00 am and get ready for school. )
When my daughter graduated from the Kindergarten program, she cried. She did not want to leave. Ms. Bree taught dance and my daughter loved it! Everyday she would come home showing us what new dance and moves she learned.
I have no problem recommending parents to attend SLC. This is the best school in the Valley! - Ruthie W., reviewed Fall of 2014 on Yelp
My daughter has been attending this center for 2 years now. As an only child with two working adults, it has been a wonderful place for her to grow and learn. The staff is beyond words. They are so caring and kind. The know not only every child’s name, but also the parents. It is just a joy to be able to trust them with the care of my little one.
She is currently in the pre-K program, and Mrs. Cindy runs a phenomenal classroom. She has the kids respect (along with the parents). It is just a continuation of the environment my daughter has been in since day 1.
Mrs. Ricole is the director, and she is always available to answer any concerns that we have. She and her front desk staff truly offer a lot of help with scheduling and other minor issues that always seem to pop up.
If you get the chance to send your child here, you will not be disappointed in the quality of care. Worth every penny. - Carlton W., reviewed Fall of 2014 on Yelp
We have two little ones (3 and 1) in the SLC system and they both love it (both started at 8 months). I’m always surprised when I hear my 3yr old say something clever or give me the correct answer when I’m quizzing him on something and think, “Where did you learn that?” My wife and also find it fun when he can teach us a new song that he sings with his class. I was also shocked when all the staff that we pass when dropping the kids off could call our kids by name. My 1 yr old almost jumps out of my arms and into her teacher’s when I drop her off. We were referred to this school and haven’t looked back since. Keep up the great work. – Dave Klann, reviewed on Raintree Google Places
I completely agree with TC. SCCLC is one of the rare “day cares” that actually focuses on the kids… this is not a babysitting facility – they actually educate and work on forming kids into active, respectful, happy little people. There is always an open and welcome line of communication with parents, and the tuition policies are very parent-friendly. I have a toddler and an infant at the Kierland location, and SCCLC is the simply the BEST we’ve experienced or heard of! - Karen Burke Evers, reviewed on SLCatKierland Facebook Reviews
SLC is dynamite! My son has been going to SLC since November 2009 and my husband and I could not be more happy. Out of the 13 children that he started out with, 8 of them are still together and in the same class, 2 children are in the class below because of birth dates and 3 children have either moved or stayed at home with mom because of the birth of a new baby. I have NOT heard of one child that has left SLC to go to another school.SLC provides 3 different playgrounds based on your child’s age and physical ability. The infant playground is padded and surround by a security fence that includes age-friendly toys. The toddler playground is huge with plenty of space to run and play. There are plenty of bikes, balls and toys for each child to have one while playing. The grass is artificial on this playground which is great for the toddlers when they take “spills”. The teachers are incredible and the turnover is practically none. All of my son’s teachers have been patient and understanding with regard to teaching my son as he grows and communicating behavioral situations that need more attention when needed. We work as a team! Hands down LOVE SLC! – McKenzie Simmons, reviewed on Citysearch.com
We have both our daughters at SLC Raintree – we are thrilled with all of the teachers and members of the SLC family! Have now been thru rooms #1-14 in our many years watching them graduate their way thru each class and everyone is FANTASTIC…the best part of all is our daughters are safe, secure, loved, educated, challenged and HAPPY! – Michele Alldredge Beyer, reviewed on SLCatRaintree Facebook Reviews
My son who is now in 1st grade attended and my daughter is currently attending SCCLC. My kids are two years apart but my daughter has had most of the same teachers that my son had. I am very happy to see the same teachers stay for so long. I feel very comfortable in the fact that this school can truly care for and teach my daughter (as they did for my son). I am at stay-at-home mom and one of my favorite aspects of this school is that you do not have to set a schedule and you only pay for the days that your child is there. I also love the Christian based learning. It is very refreshing that there are still people who want to thank God for their lunch! - reviewed by a parent on GreatSchools.org
What a wonderful learning experience for little ones, in a very caring, safe environment. We had wonderful teachers, I strongly recommend them. – reviewed by a parent on kudzu.com
This preschool is far superior to any other child care I have seen or heard of from my friends. The teachers are awesome, my kids have absolutely loved every single one they have had over the years. My eldest is in 1st grade now, and is at the top of his class, which I attribute to Scottsdale Learning Centers. They have always responded with genuine care and action whenever I have had a question or possible concern. Definitely recommend them to anyone! – Robin Smith, reviewed on SmartGuy.com
My oldest daughter (almost 3!!) loves her teachers and her friends. She’s been at SLC at Raintree since she turned 1 and has progressed through different classrooms and teachers with her same friends. When she came home counting to 10 in Spanish, and telling me about the “whole wide world,” I knew she was in the right place. I looked and looked for daycare before we placed her here, and the moment I walked into SLC at Raintree and Cher told me, “we hold the babies all day, all week long when they first arrive. We’re just like grandma’s house,” I felt like this was the place for my child and now my children. My second daughter (now almost 1) has been attending SLC at Raintree since August. I love this place; it feels like family! – Jennifer Clark, reviewed on Raintree Google Places
A warm, wonderful environment! We just enrolled our second child after an amazing 2-year experience with our first. Throughout all of the classrooms the teachers are welcoming and genuinely interested in each child. Their meals and snacks are always nutritious and kid-appropriate. The management staff welcomes calls throughout the day from parents wanting to check-in. The kids not only get a chance to play and socialize with other children their own age, but learn wonderful foundational material. An amazing experience! - Angie Miller, reviewed on Kierland Google Places
Loving, kind teaching enviorment. Very clean and organized. Best childcare school in the valley!!! Feel so lucky to have found this school! – Taun Adams, reviewed on Kierland Google Places
Enrolling our daughter in Scottsdale Child Care and Learning Center at Raintree has been a wonderful blessing. One of the most difficult things we have experienced as parents is “letting go” of our daughter and entrusting someone to care for her in a safe and nurturing manner. Cher and her entire staff are kind and compassionate, and attentive to the individual needs, fears, and concerns of each family. They have reached beyond our expectations with genuine efforts to make our daughter feel excited about her “new school”. We are always welcomed with a warm smile from Cher and ReAnne, and encouraged to “check-in” at any time throughout the day, which was especially comforting and reassuring in the beginning weeks. The transition for our daughter has been a pleasant expereince and one that we are VERY thankful for. She has learned to do many new and exciting things; the daily lesson plans are well-structured and include engaging activities that are age-appropriate and fun art projects; which she really enjoys! Her teacher, Ms. Angela, always welcomes her with a great BIG hug whenever we enter the class room (tremendously helpful when good-byes are tearful), thank-you Ms. Angela! We are grateful to everyone at Scottsdale Child Care and Learning Center at Raintree who have embraced our daughter in so many thoughtful and kind-hearted ways ~ including Ms. Susie. Like most parents, we struggle with our daughter’s food “preferences”, and Ms. Susie has been wonderfully helpful in our efforts for her to try new foods (a work in progress!). We would encourage anyone to visit the center when choosing a daycare/ preschool. Although one of the most dificult decisions we have had to make, it is DEFINITELY one of the best! – Boris, Teresa & Sophia Najac , reviewed on 10/13/2010 - Scottsdale, AZ
