Thank you so much for caring – We moved to Denver in 2007, after we got settle I search for daycares that were up to par with my active little boy. In a period of 3 months I enrolled him in 4 daycares. Like many daycare horror stories my boy would come back crying, being terrified of going back to day care, or they would not be clean, organize or nice looking.
When we found Crème first we thought they would be too expensive, but after putting numbers together adding the extra price for what other daycares would consider extracurricular activities ie (Spanish, computers, art) the price was comparable.
Not meaning to make this a long story, I had to recover from an illness and my husband had a terrible car accident. During both situations they were so empathetic to our situation and they work with us to ensure that my boy could cope with them as best as possible. All the staff knew my boy by name and I felt that they genuinely cared for him.
My boy stayed there all the way thru kindergarten and I can tell you that the curriculum is challenging and the discipline enforced by the teacher was preparing him to the transition to first grade.
We really miss you guys I wish we did not have to move to Texas. Thank you for everything.
My Daugther's Rapid Progress – Perfect place for my little one! Creme has saved us the trouble of hiring a babysitter or nanny for our princess. We are at peace knowing that our precious daughter is in good hands. Her teacher has her own special way of stimulating and motivating my child's attention in order to learn best. Even at home, I can see my child's interest in almost everything. She is always inquisitive and asks smart questions. She would sing and recite poems for me. I am always at awe at the rate my daughter progresses. I love spending time with her.
Our Only Choice – My husband's work assignment frequently changes to a new city every 2 or 3 years. Our biggest concern has always been locating schools that could help our sons adjust while helping them smoothly progress in their academics. My children are currently schooling at Creme de la Creme. The staff has been great with them and their teachers have performed well and above their duties. I can say that my children's experiences here are the best by far. The school's program also allows the parents to be involved with the kids' education which is really helpful in eliminating any fears and anxieties in my children in being a new environment. Next time my husband gets a new assignment to a different city, my first choice would always be Creme de la Creme.
Absolutely the best early child school in Denver metro! – Our daughter has attended Creme since she was 7 months and she's now almost 4 years old. Creme has exceeded our expectations and prepared her so well for Pre-K. I highly recoomend Creme to any parent consideing this accredited program. This is not daycrae but the first steps into education.
Creme is an important part of her expanded village with teachers whom we love and quality families who are close friends.
Not only do her teachers share her accomplishments but offer constructive feedback on the areas that we focus on at home. The parent teacher conferences are well thought out and provide meaningful feedback and build on each year so you can document your child's development. The PATHS curriculm was introduced last year, so we are also well informed about what is being studied in class. I also liked the 6 month rotation when she was younger so her instruction was always age appropriate.
In addition, the administration has been terrific in dialoguing with us and listening to our feedback about teacher assignments and expectations around her experiences. They are well aware of what's happening and always make extra time just to check in.
We love most the daily Spanish, Art, Gym, Computers as well as the focus on the basics. Having teachers who specialize in each subject is important as is the classroom change which keeps their environment fresh and exciting as well as prepares them for Pre-K and/or Kindergarten.i In addition, I appreciate the parenting classes offered which help us be better parents.
Pretty, but not great for the toddler – I was also sold on the Disneyland looking interior which is very impressive. I loved the hours for a working parent (6:30am-6:30pm) and they provide all diapers, foods and sheets as well as take care of all the laundry. What I didn't like is the chaos you witness if you take the time to sit and just watch your kid there throughout the day. If your kid is older they move them from room to room to learn things, but no indvidual attention. If you are in the toddler room they throw a bunch of toys on the floor and try to keep kids from misbehaving, but not really structured. My kid cried for months and was sick the entire time she was there. I just sat for a few hrs one day watching after a month my daughter was there and knew I had to get her out (via a 30-day required notice). She's so much happier in her new school and was from day 1. This place is over-priced for what they give and do for your kid. BTW - the food they serve is not great if you are into natural or at least no high fructose corn syrup foods and your kid will be sick right after enrollment no doubt.
FAKE – The place looks amazing! thats what did it for me, i thought if the place is more on a higher end than the staff should be up there too on their moral level as well as on their educational level! Well i was wrong!!!!! My daughter is 3 shes not going to argue with the teacher if he/she is doing something wrong. To put in few words" people are there just to get their pay checks and go home, they are not there to look after your kids to educate them or protect them in any way" they simply dont care!!!!! My daughter was sick every other week, they would let her walk in wet socks and shoes for a WHOLE day and when i came to get her and asked them WHAT IS THIS!! they said simply she ran into mud so we hosed down her shoes and sucks!!! OMG!! Every kid in that pace has to have a back pack that has spare everything they didnt even care enough to change her socks. She also had no underwear on, they didnt care to put a dry pair on. they never put sunblock as a metter of a fact my daughter said that her teacher told her that she can only use sunblock when she at home and not in school, its 95 outside the dont care to put a cap on even though you provide everything that the child needs during the day.....They simply dont care !!! If you love your child i would advice you to think twice before putting them into creme de la cremes hands!!!!
Horrible! All show! – I enrolled my son as an infant and pulled him after two short months. Sure the facilities are impressive but the staff is way out of line and constantly changing. At least weekly we would have a new teacher in his classroom. I would stop by during various times throughout the day and never once were any of the teachers interacting with him. The straw that broke the camel's back was when I went to see my son and two teachers were sitting in chairs talking with each other not interacting with any children and there was my son in a swing with a bottle propped up in his mouth. Unacceptable in ANY scenario! I immediately
went to the Director to discuss and wrote a letter to their Corporate offices and did not receive any response. There are plenty of other centers that will provide better care for your child.
Creme is all that you could wish for and more in a day care for your children. – For any parent trying to find a safe and caring day care for their children while they are away at work can be a daunting task... that is why we feel so lucky to have found Creme de la Creme. After touring many leading day cares around the city we knew that we found the right facility just after our first visit. Our daughter started at Creme when she was only three months old and has now been a part of the Creme family for almost three years. We feel the curriculum, structure and fun atmosphere is among one of the best which builds confidence and independence along with preparing the children academically for their future. The teachers are so warm and loving and always strive to provide the ultimate care. The Director and her team have longevity with Creme which shows their commitment and love for the children as well as the business. Having a safe, stimulating and fun "home away from home" for our children while we are working brings such a sense of relief and peace of mind. We wish that there would be more Creme facilities throughout the city so more families can experience the magic of Creme.
Our daughter hates to leave! – Our daughter started at Creme in December 2002 when she was seven months old. Before joining Creme, we toured several centers in the area. A friend recommended Creme. The minute we stepped in we knew that this was the place we wanted our daughter to be at - it stood out from all the others.
We have been very pleased with Creme's elaborate daily progress sheets which included what she did, what she ate and what percentage of each food she ate! We have always felt very safe sending her to Creme. She was usualy happy to arrive every morning and sometimes didn't want to leave in the evening.
The school has done everything far beyond our expectations. We are generally very picky, but over the span of 4 years and 9 months, we have very rarely found anything out of place. We have been recommending Creme to all of our day-care seeking friends.
The curriculum at Creme develops a child's overall personality: social, language, math, art, music, computers, Spanish and physical skills. Learning is structured and yet our daughter always seemed to have fun. Your kindergarten program was so effective that our five year old tested out at 3rd grade math and spelling and 5th grade reading for an entrance exam for 1st grade.
Our daughter has had a wonderful time in Creme throughout. We feel sad that she has to leave and we would like to thank all her teachers and the other staff members at Creme for providing such outstanding service.
"Disneyworld" look masks high teacher turnover – We sent our children to Creme, initially impressed by the beautiful facility. Within just a few weeks, our childrens' teachers had either resigned or complained bitterly about the poor management and/or compensation. The turnover was striking - we went through several teachers in as many months. This was disruptive to say the least, particularly for our 2 year old. In addition, you are required to buy their uniforms which are very pricey. If your child doesn't have a backup and they have an accident (requiring another shirt or pair of shorts), they automatically charge you for another. For the money, this is NOT the creme de la creme of Denver! We moved our kids as soon as was feasible, and we are now all happier for it. Other programs may not have expensive design features that lure in parents, but they sure have happier kids and teachers.
