My son is 5 and I couldn't be more happier with the staff at the pineforest location they truly have made his vpk experience wonderful.
My son Derek absolutely loves Malenas . He asks every morning to go and every afternoon to go . If I pick him up in the car rider line and forget to call them they call to make sure he is safe . They have a set schedule for the kids and also have homework time and the staff always says good morning to my son by his name. I love the staff and malena. They love the kids and take great care of them
I cannot say enough great things about this school! My daughter is 4 and had a late start in the VPK program. She is at the Pine Forest Rd location. She was welcomed with open arms. Malena is very passionate about her company. She is very friendly but very structured. I like that a lot. She is very straight forward and I respect that about her. I love the safety of the school. They are very good with checking Id's to make sure whomever is picking up, is on the list. My daughter brings something home every day that tells me what she learned. Her teachers are great and you can tell they really enjoy their job. They walk outside every morning with the Flag to say the Pledge of Allegiance of the United States. I'm so thankful I found this place. If you are looking for a great school or daycare I highly recommend Malena's Mini School. I am very picky and protective so for me to feel 100% comfortable, says a lot. Two thumbs up!! Thank you!!
I love the after school program at Malena's Mini School. The staff is great and keep the kids busy. There Summer Camp program is also great. The kids stay very busy.
The staff was very helpful and great with my daughter! They always greeted and told her goodbye! Mrs. Gaddy and Mrs. Baker were fabulous! I was so glad my daughter was in their class, she always came home telling all about them and still does. My daughter started school barely knowing her colors and shapes and now she is startingg to read and can count to 100 in multiple ways including backwards! I highly recommend this school!
I absolutely love this school, my son learned so much and the teachers go above and beyond!
We have sent both of our sons to this school. The teachers are all wonderful and Malena treats all the kids as if they were her own.
The experience was great. Lyric loved coming to school each and everyday. We enjoyed the experience so much that our son Jaleel will be attending in August.
The staff and teachers are great. I can not say enough about Ms. Gaddy & Ms. Baker. They a wonderful teacher and my grandson loved them. He learned so much and was so excited about school. This is the second grandchild of mine to gratis te from Malania's and another to come next year. Honestly the excelllerated program there has the children well equipped for Kindergarten. So thankful for their program. Pam Eckhoff
Mrs. Knowles is a great teacher and the other personnel are wonderful as well. We will definitely place our youngest here when it's his time!
I just want to thank the staff at malenas for all the caring and teaching they do. My daughter has learned so much from counting, colors and shapes to saying her full name. I can go on . She always ask if she has school the next day. Thank you again
I was impressed by the wholesome attitude and the business ethics of the school on a daily basis. The teachers were "right on" in the daily lessons and the fact that the children responded to the lessons. The students were taught numbers, the alphabet, how to count to 100, & how to print their names! Included also was taught respect for authority of the teachers and how to get along with the other students. I am grateful for the dedication of the teachers and their wholesome attitude of making ready for the four-year olds to go to "big school."
Great school. My daughter loved every minute of it. She learned everything she needed to know for kindergarten. Mrs. KNOWLES Rocks!
Both of my children have been through VPK at Malena's and I would not have had them go anywhere else! The teachers are the best and take the time to really work with the kids. I was amazed at how prepared for Kindergarten they were. My experience was wonderful. Malena's honestly has the best VPK teachers and program around!!
Great teachers, Ms Malena is a wonderful woman.
My family has been bringing their children to Malena's for 10+ years now. So, obviously when I had my first baby five months ago I immediately enrolled her at the Pine Forest location. I couldn't be happier with the infant teachers. They listen to and fulfill any and all requests. My daughter is kept on a very consistent schedule, which is super important to me. Her teachers are kind and love her like she's one of their own. My little one always comes home fed, clean, rested, and happy.Ms. Malena is known for running a tight ship. She may seem strict sometimes, but it's always for good reason. Malena and many of her teachers have been in the childcare business for decades, so they are educated and very experienced in child development. I know that Malena has my child's best interest at heart and I completely trust her and her extremely capable staff with my baby every day. Since I can't be with my child every step of the way, I'm truly grateful for the amazing teachers who can be.
