Let Us Introduce Ourselves
What Our Parents Are Saying:
Since 1987, Springboard Schools has played a part in the beginnings of thousands of children’s lives. Here is what our current families say about their experiences (note that testimonials will rotate):
“Springboard Schools Sudbury has been such a wonderful experience for our family. Both of our children started in the infant room. Our son just entered Kindergarten this year, and our daughter will head to Kindergarten next year. From the early days in the infant room, helping to ease the difficult transition back to work, to the later years, preparing them so well for Kindergarten, and everything in between, it has been such a comfort knowing our children are in such a caring and nurturing environment. The staff truly care about the children, helping them to thrive emotionally, socially and educationally, and really make the effort to connect with the parents, communicating on a daily basis about the details of our children’s days. Most importantly, our kids have loved it there, are very well prepared for Kindergarten, and have made so many wonderful friends along the way (and so have us parents). We are grateful for all our family has gained from our years at Springboard Schools Sudbury.”
“We have been bringing our children to Springboard Schools Sudbury for more than 8 years and have experienced every room – multiple times. We recommend Springboard Schools Sudbury so highly not because they have lots of toys, or do imaginative projects, or because the school is clean, bright, and vibrant. To be sure it is all of those things, but that is not why love it. We love it because the teachers genuinely care about our boys. Everyday our boys are met by smiling happy teachers who say hi and ask how they are doing, not just the adults. And they come home smiling every day. They tell us about the games they played with their friends, books they shared in class, art projects they worked on. They do this because the teachers care enough to make Springboard Schools Sudbury a special place for them. The few times there has been a concern, Kim and the other teachers have always taken the time to talk to us over the phone or meet in person to listen and work with us. The highest compliment we can pay to Springboard Schools Sudbury is to say we don’t worry about the children when they are at “school.”
“For anyone looking for care you can not only trust but rely on, I highly recommend Springboard Schools Sudbury. I originally picked them for somewhat superficial reasons: the location (close to work and situated on a hill overlooking rolling fields that are gorgeous at sunset) and the work-friendly hours (open at 7:00 a.m until 6 p.m.). But I stayed because they are a group of dedicated professionals who truly care about their wards. First of all, the staff is largely made up of teachers who have been there for a long time; that is somewhat unusual in daycare. What that means is that they care and have roots in the place. It also means that the children get attached to their caregivers and can count on them. Another unusual feature is that the teachers for all age groups cover for each other during breaks, so the students get to know ALL the teachers and disruption is minimized if their primary teacher has to be out. Teachers get to know students well. One of my fondest memories is of a teacher at Springboard Schools Sudbury who, knowing my daughter had an egg allergy and that we celebrate the Jewish holidays, presented me one day with several egg free recipes, including one for potato pancakes that I still use to this day. You feel the teachers really know and love your kids. The infant room teachers cuddle the babies all day, and you can tell they love it. The toddler teachers know your children well enough to tip you off when a tooth is coming in, or an illness might be on the way (telling you, “He’s just not himself today.”). The Preschool and PreK teachers ease the children into academics and MORE than prepare them for kindergarten: both socially and academically. They take time to talk to you at drop-off and pick-up and to listen to and respond to your concerns. The directors I’ve worked with have also been accommodating and flexible and compassionate. The rates are reasonable, with many add-on’s an option, including swimming lessons (both my kids learned to swim here), language lessons, music enrichment, and gymnastics. I have no reservations about recommending Springboard Schools Sudbury. I feel my children are in the care of intelligent, caring, professionals every day, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”
“Springboard Schools Westford came highly recommended from a co-worker. After visiting the center, we were confident that this was the place for our two children. We were comforted to know that the center was NAEYC certified. Both children are welcomed on a daily basis and feel very comfortable at Springboard Schools Westford. All staff members are kind, warm and friendly. Springboard Schools Westford has been very flexible with our work schedules. We know that when our children are at Springboard Schools Westford they are well-cared for, safe and happy!”
“Our daughter has attended Springboard Schools Arlington since she was 15 months old (been in all 4 of the classrooms) and we couldn’t be happier with the school. She has learned so much from her teachers, who are very warm and caring and make learning fun. There’s a nice balance of structured class time and free time for the children to play and be creative. The classrooms are large and sunny and our daughter has taken advantage of great additional class offerings such as gymnastics, soccer, and dance.”
“As our daughter has moved through three stages of her education at Springboard Schools Arlington, she has encountered only kindness, love, and support. She comes home every day proud of what she has learned and excited about what the next day will bring.”
