After visiting more than half a dozen established schools, we quickly realized we needed a loving, nurturing, and high-quality program to prepare our children for kindergarten and beyond. We wanted an environment that not only enriches our children’s socio-emotional skills but also provides an environment where they can develop their curiosity and appetite to learn and explore, socialize with other children, and make friends.

We love Marigold Academy! It was clear they loved our son, and they took great care of him. Even when his behavior got challenging, they went the extra mile to help him though his struggles and even started doing individualized exercises and feedback. They are like family!

All 3 of my kids have gone to the Marigold Academy and it has been a great experience. Not only did my oldest daughter leave more than ready for her first year of kindergarten but my other two children are still enrolled and go in with smiles every day. The staff is top notch from top to bottom. They go above and beyond to make sure my kids get the attention they deserve.

Our son was in this school for 4 years from the Infant room right through pre-K, during the turbulence of COVID. Our experience of the school has been fantastic. It really feels like a family. Our son is well prepared to go on with his learning journey.

We noticed almost instantaneous results with our son once he started attending Marigold Academy. Their education and activity plans had dramatic results in developing our son’s speech, motor skills and interaction with others. This is NOT dropping off your kid to have recess all day. This is leaving your kid with education professionals to help them learn and grow. We love Marigold Academy and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for a daycare for their little ones.
