“Every day I grappled with the guilt of being a working mom. Until we came to Cheekwood, a year ago… I can’t believe it. Now the guilt is pushed aside because of the loving, safe, nurturing environment. Anthony enjoys every day. The staff is amazing but it comes from the top. I wanted to acknowledge all you do to make Cheekwood a haven for a working mom. Thank you, thank you, a million time”

The Lucas Family

“With one child who has graduated from CCDC and two others who are currently enrolled there, we can honestly say that the Cheekwood Pre-K program has shown itself to be the perfect step between the preschool setting and the the often scary transition to kindergarten. Through a structured curriculum yet loving environment, our children have gained the confidence that they needed to succeed at any school. In fact, much of the content that our daughter is learning in kindergarten was already covered by Miss Lisa. They are reading, writing, getting their hands dirty with thoughtful experiments, and shocking us with their Spanish vocabulary among other things. They come home each day ready to share what they have learned and excited to go back the next day.”
