Parents at this school, on average, believe that conflicts between children:

Are handled extraordinarily well in a way that not only gives me confidence in the safety of my child but also reassures me that my child (and his/her peers) are learning the early skills needed to socialize effectively with one another

General School Comments: From the Parents

    I sent my child who had special needs to Children at Play. They were unbelievably compassionate toward me, my son as well as my daughter who did not attend this school. The services my son was mandated for were followed explicitly. He was often rewarded and encouraged and before the year was out, he was decertified for special needs. I now have a third child without special needs whom i would proudly send to their inclusion class on the general education side. This school is a safe, clean and motivating environment and the teachers are superb.
