Our son has been going to Carlton since he was 3 months old. Since this was our first born we were extremely anxious to put him into a daycare but have been beyond pleased with our experience at Carlton. Monica and Sammy are absolutely amazing and they do everything they can to make you feel comfortable leaving him every day. The teachers show so much attention and love to our little one that I know he is excited to be there and the best part is we can watch him on the webcam that not only provides a nice sense of security but allows you to check in and see what he’s up to. We would highly recommend Carlton to anyone!

Our son has gone here since he was 4 months old. He is now 2 and half! He is so advanced in knowing his colors, numbers, letters and I owe this to great teachers & curriculum. The staff also is amazing, real and understanding. Especially with crazy emotional 1st time Moms! :-)

I sent my first son to Carlton in January 2013 and my second son in June 2014 both at the age of 3 months when I had to return to work after maternity leave. We chose Carlton because of the webcam feature and the ability to check on our son(s) from work. But, we quickly fell in love with Kay and Monica on the management team as well as all the teachers we met. The teachers absolutely love the kids and take such good care of them. Over the past year, we have faced a few challenges with turnover in management as well as in teaching staff. There's a lot of rules and things tend to be very black and white. The culture has changed a lot and it does not have the same family / collaborative feel that we grew to know and love. Also, the software that's used to access the webcams stopped working on our computers over 6 months ago. We tried to work with management to get it fixed, but they just directed us to the app. The app works, but it's grainy and not as easy to watch and find your kid as the web interface we used on our computers. Overall, Carlton's very fortunate to have FANTASTIC, LOVING teachers in the classroom that truly take an interest in each child. However, they have a few administrative / management challenges that turn parents off.

We LOVE Carlton Academy Day School. We enrolled both of our sons when they turned 4 months old. Our oldest is currently in the VPK program. He is learning so much. He is always excited to share what he has learned for the day. One of the most amazing things to me is that he can read now thanks to his amazing teachers. They are taking the time to teach him what he needs to learn in order to have a successful transition to kindergarten. My youngest son is in the 1 1/2 year old room. He adores his teachers! He knows animals and colors, etc. He surprises us with new words all the time. I love how my children are able to interact with peers too. There are a good group of children at this school. I can't say enough about the children, parents, teachers and staff. You know your children are in a good place when they spend 9 hours at school and aren't ready to leave when you come to pick them up (trust me, they love their time at home too). We checked out several schools before we decided on Carlton Academy. The webcam was a huge plus but for us, we loved the structure. As the children grow, they also learn the importance of being respectful to friends and teachers. We love this school!

Our daughter has attended Carlton since October 2011 when she was 3 months old. Come August, she will be starting VPK. It is extremely convenient for parents who work downtown. We loved her teachers as an infant, through the toddler years, and now moving up to pre-K. She has also made lots of "best friends" here at Carlton. Developmentally, she has flourished here, particularly in the 4-year-old class with Miss Scott. The directors are great and very responsive to any issue we have had (which are few and far between). We also like that Carlton is not closed for many days during the year, unlike other area schools. We rarely have to arrange for alternate childcare. There were some growing pains a while back when a new day care opened nearby; the school experienced some teacher and student turnover. However, we are very pleased with our decision to keep our daughter here.

Recently my 26 year old daughter passed away in NOV and trusted me with her 3 month son. A big responsibility! What a blessing he has been in our lives. My wife did her homework and found a great place, Carlton Academy. Carlton is like our extended family and they love the children that attend their school. He is now 8 months and started crawling two weeks ago. It seems that he is ahead of the game and we believe is due to all the love in support from our family, but also the Carlton Academy staff. Carlton Academy is very clean and use various methods of communication with the parents. They also have CCTV where you can watch your child via your smartphone. Great peace of mind when he is a school at Carlton. We were fortunate to find an opening!

My granddaughter begin her adventure with Carlton Academy in January, she loves it here she knows all of her friends well and looks forward to coming in and sharing fruit snacks with them. Carlton is a great JumpStart for children 0-5 the teachers are good at what they do as well as keeping the kids engaged and as a teacher that is a very important and meaningful accomplishment to be be able to fulfill with children. I and my family appreciate the opportunity to have our precious gem enrolled here at Carlton Academy Day school.

Overall we have really enjoyed our experience at Carlton. Our daughter had loved all her teachers. The location is very convenient if you work downtown. The webcams are a nice feature for new parents that are still "adjusting" to daycare. The staff seems very caring and knowledgeable about each child.
