Our parents say:

“…she is always excited to tell us about her day!”

We are incredibly happy to have our daughter at Como Early Learning Center!  She is currently in one of the preschool rooms and loves her teachers.  We have never met a teacher or teacher’s assistant who wasn’t welcoming, kind, and attentive to her needs. We are very happy with the curriculum and are confident that she is engaged throughout the day as she is always excited to tell us about her day! Between daily recaps, weekly newsletters with classroom jobs and activities, and a friendly conversation with her teachers at drop off and pick up, CELC excels at involving parents and typically have little tidbits of info about her day that give us a good glimpse into her preschool hours.

“We are so grateful to have such a welcoming environment for our daughter to learn in”

Our daughter has been at CELC for about 5 months.  We have always found all staff to be polite and accommodating and she loves going to school.  We appreciate the weekly calendars and daily updates.  CELC teachers and staff have been very helpful in helping us figure out logistics, paperwork and payments.  We are so grateful to have such a welcoming environment for our daughter to learn in that is so close to home!

“The staff members are warm, knowledgeable and fun”

My daughter has been at CELC since she was 18 months old, and we have been blown away by the quality of care and education she’s received.  The staff members are warm, knowledgeable and fun, and they do a great job communicating with us about her day-to-day activities and overall development.  She’s naturally shy but has become so much more comfortable with other kids and has really come out of her shell thanks to her experience at school.  Not a day goes by that I don’t feel thankful we snagged a spot in this wonderful school — it’s a terrific value and I recommend it to everyone I know with small kids.

“Her teachers and assistant teachers consistently go above and beyond”

I cannot say enough good things about CELC.  My daughter has been in Room A for over a year and I’m extremely pleased with the treatment and education she has received.  Her teachers and assistant teachers consistently go above and beyond expectations to make sure our daughter is doing the best she can.

In addition to those in her classroom, the rest of the teachers and staff are always extremely friendly and willing to help out.  The school really feels like a close-knit community, one where each and every child is supported by all members of the school.

We will certainly be sending our son to CELC once he is old enough!

“CELC taught our son crucial life lessons”

We had a fantastic experience with CELC!  Our son was in room A for 2 years.  We went through all the stages of doubt and worries that come with putting your firstborn in the hands of other people.  The “other people” turned out to be the most loving, inspiring, creative caretakers we could have wished for.  CELC taught our son crucial life lessons such as how to be a good friend, how to grow tomatoes, how to share toys, how to wash hands, and how to observe bugs.  They taught him that it’s okay for boys to love unicorns and pink, that creativity matters more than toys, and that being kind is more important than being first.  As parents, we learned that the most important part of education are committed, well educated, loving teachers.  We have moved from Minneapolis to Boston to Finland and seen a lot of schools/early learning centers since.  We can truthfully say that CELC is hard to beat.
