Testimonials

Our son looked forward to going to preschool everyday and seeing his favorite teacher, and his friends! - Sylena, parent

MELC is a great school, my son built a great relationship with all the students and teachers in such a short time. I love how they have events for the family and how they celebrate holidays for the kids to participate in (Valentine's, St. Patrick's, Dr. Seuss' Birthday, etc.) Everyday is an exciting day for my son J.J. He has learned so much here. - Cassie, parent

MELC has been a great place for my son to start his education. He has learned so much already and surprises me more everyday. Now he tries to teach his younger sister also. The teachers in the Bird Room are great and really care about the students. My son, Danny is excited to come in everyday and see what he's going to learn. - Heather, parent

I've had two children in MELC and both look forward to attending school every morning. They've developed great social skills and I can tell through their structure that they have learned a great deal. I would recommend MELC to anyone looking for a great learning experience for their child. - Edward, parent

My experience with MELC has been great. My daughter Deonnah has accomplished a lot since she started here, the teachers are great. They work one - on - one with your child. They show the kids a lot of love and your child is learning from the things they do and say. And as for the staff on a whole they work patiently with and make sure your child stays in school regardless on circumstances and situation. MELC is there for you and your child. - Tamika, parent

Awesome! MELC's programs are great. I sent my oldest to another program and my youngest to MELC and I can definitely see the difference. Now, all of my children come to MELC and they love it. - Jason (parent)
