“Our children love this school! The director and all the teachers they have had over the years have been wonderful! My daughter looks forward to going to school each day and I believe they are the reason she loves learning. Both kids are very happy when I pick them. We love the school!”
“My daughter has been attending Children’s Manor in Columbia for almost a year now. She is 2 1/2 and can speak spanish, recognize numbers, the alphabet (upper and lower case), can name all the planets/stars in the solar system and has learned phonics. The teachers are attentive and truly care about the students. We are quite pleased with the program.”
