Our experience with RFTS has been outstanding! The program is incredible well developed – far more impressive than any other program I researched. I love that he learns Italian and Sign Language in addition to English. I feel confident that this opportunity has strengthened my son academically, socially and emotionally.Michelle Gambino It is important to drop your little one off in the morning and feel as if you are dropping them off with family and they run in the door with a smile on their face because they know they are about to have a great day which not only includes playing, but a learning experience as well. It makes your day as a parent much better knowing that your child(ren) are in great hands. I wouldn't send my child or steer anyone elsewhere.Jennifer MacioceThere is no one better than Frances and the staff at Reach For The STARS! Anyone would have a hard time finding a day care that matches their standards and level of education. My baby got a great education because he went to your day care.Stacey LoserMy child has learned and grown so much there. I feel lucky that my daughter went there. RFTS made my days at work easy.Maria Filosa…My children, and all the children in care at Reach For The STARS, receive the best care I can imagine. The fact that both our children are verbally advanced and very smart can be attributed to the hard work and dedication of RFTS and their wonderful staff.Gregg & Patricia CohenMy husband and I are very happy with RFTS. We feel confident dropping off our daughter knowing that she will be cared for and also have a wonderful learning experience. I first realized how wonderful the program was when she would come signing words. It really impressed us. We feel fortunate to have her in daycare at RFTS.Carol
