Review №1

I have tried every type of childcare: live in nanny, live out nanny, au pair, half-day preschool, and several daycares for my three children over the years and by far we have had the best childcare experience at Cranfield Academy Providence. There are several reasons why, beginning with the morale and happiness of the teachers. They have staff members who have been there for nearly 20 years, just looking at the longevity of the teachers tells you that the school is well run, the staff is happy and committed and it trickles down into the classroom. Teachers are genuinely cheerful and glad to be there, and the kids respond by having good drops off and not hating going to school. The administration truly bends over backwards to meet families needs, and they have a real focus on what matters, not just sticking to a policy for policys sake. They care, are accessible, and excellent with communication. I also really like the apps they use to keep parents apprised of the kids activities and major developments throughout the day. We are moving and have to find a new daycare, which break my heart because I wouldve stayed here as long as my children are under school age.

Today was my 5 month old daughters first day at Cranfield and arguably the most difficult day to overcome. However, thanks to the kindness and reassurance of the director, Victoria and her teachers, Ms. Cynthia and Ms. Terra my daughter had a fantastic day and so did her parents! We were constantly provided with updates via their app regarding nap times, feedings and diaper changes. It gave us such peace of mind knowing what was going on while we were working. As parents, you are constantly making choices to help your child thrive. Enrolling her here was the best decision and its only day one!

Our experience at Cranfield was absolutely wonderful! The staff is very warm and professional; they became like family to my son. He loved going to Cranfield every day and would cling to the teacher when it was time to leave, he just wanted to stay, he loved it. I loved how well they communicated with me about my son and that they worked on developmental tasks with him. He learned a lot of baby signs in the toddler room so he could communicate with us better at home. It was very comforting to know he was so well taken care of when I couldnt be with him!

Cranfield Academy on Providence is absolutely amazing. Every teacher we had there was kind, nurturing and taught our daughter well. We couldnt have asked for a better experience. To the Cranfield Academy team: THANK YOU for all you do!

We have been a Cranfield Academy for two years and it is by far the best day care our children have attended. We highly recommended this school.We feel because it is privately owned there is a high level of personal care and concern for our children. We particularly appreciate the attentive teachers and the varied lesson plans.Our kids have thrived at Cranfield and look forward to going to school. They are happy and well loved here.

Keep looking! Unfortunately, this is not the best choice in the Charlotte/Matthews area. Very unorganized and not a very good curriculum. Very high turnover! The people they hire are questionable and not even sure if they are certified. The infant teacher is the only good thing about this place, but the others were not very energetic and excited to be there. Barely worked on anything with my child. She has been in a new place for a short time and has progressed so much faster. Also, it very unprofessional when they would have the kitchen help watch classroom because they too cheap to hire assistants to help with the rooms. You are paying a lot and not getting much in return. The chain daycares are cheaper and offer much more!

This facility will keep sick children amongst well children. Teachers can report illness in room from fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and skin rashes on MULTIPLE children and directors will say “keep an eye on it”. Rather than notify parents.Parents aren’t notified until several children have been confirmed to have salmonella, the flu, head lice etc. the virus has already been transmitted at this point.It’s disgusting.

Why asking for a lot of personal questions, (especially Ms. Victoria) when you know that you wont offered the position & wasting people time to begin with?🤔(my opinion).
