Overall Rating

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

    My son was enrolled at this daycare center for one year before we moved out of state and it is the only thing we really miss about Columbus. The teachers were amazing. Unlike some daycares we visited where all of the teachers were 22 years old and didn't really know much about kids except what they learned as teenaged babysitters, the teachers at grothaus were all moms themselves and in many instances had 20 years of experience with children. My son was loved and cared for and at 18 months is drinking out of a cup without help (or a lid) and eats with a spoon. He knows his colors. He learned so much at school and appreciated his teachers and friends so much. He continues to ask for them now that we've moved.
