"Overall, Esperanza has provided the highest level of care over all other options, except for staying at home with mommy, of course =). The feel of Esperanza is unbeatable in my opinion. The children are at ease and comfortable in their surroundings, the babies (although I'm sure they have their moments) are calm and soothed by peaceful music, and *I* am comfortable there, meaning I absolutely do not feel I need the "security" of video monitoring that we have at the current facility we use. After being at the other place for 2-3 weeks, and with 3 more years of parenting experience under my belt, I have really come to appreciate Esperanza's good qualities. We are making a deposit and applying the girls tomorrow."

"We just love Esperanza--the administrative staff, the teachers, the activities. My daughter really got her nap schedule down pat the very first day of school, after I worried for weeks she would not be able to fit in with the other babies because of her aversion to napping. Nope, she took a two hour nap the very first day. Our daughter loves the teachers, they treat her with love, and they have the cutest activities ever. Splash time twice a week in summer, lots of art projects, flashcards, singing, and open communication. One thing I love about Esperanza is that the parents retain the responsibility of preparing the children's food. That means we can include or exclude anything we want, which keeps me on my toes about making sure everything that goes into my baby is healthy. We even got a house right across the street from the school because we plan to be there for a couple years. I also got a job right down the street. It's a great place! Miss Jennifer and Miss Diana are so sweet with the children--I couldn't dream of better child care. Another thing I love is the daily report cards...they tell you everything your child ate, when they had a diaper change, how long they napped, and any other relevant information. I had serious reservations about child care, but Esperanza is a school, not a daycare. I know my daughter is learning, not just moseying around waiting for me to pick her up. They really have her best interests in mind, and we appreciate that. Well worth the wait and the price!"

"Our daughter has just completed her second year and we have been so impressed. Her teachers are amazing. The curriculum is given to the parents monthly, which gives us great opportunity to continue the learning at home. The parents are always welcome in the classroom. The school gives many opportunities for families to be involved. We love the hands-on learning and the passion from the teachers!"

"My two girls go to Esperanza, and they are thriving there. The teachers are warm and loving, the administrators place a high priority on open communication, and the kids have lots of opportunities for enrichment of all kinds. There is a great deal of outdoor play year-round, but the children also get excellent pre-school prep instruction. I've found good friends among other Esperanza parents (and we all know how important that kind of network is). Finally, the overall culture and climate of the school is happy, supportive and positive. It's been great not just for our kids, but for our whole family."

"Absolutely the best care and fun for kids. My child has attended Esperanza since she was 2 years old and is now 7. We now use their summer camp every year and she has a great experience with never a complaint. She enjoys numerous field trips and art projects. Most importantly, she is given tender loving care and disciplined with true respect."

"I enrolled my daughter in the Esperanza program a month ago and we both love it; she can't wait to go each morning. The teachers are highly qualified and very sweet and caring. The curriculum is both educational and entertaining and everyone we know who has used Esperanza (either part or full time) has been able to enroll their children in the magnet program in HISD once they reach school age."

"My son has attended since he was 2 months. Now he is 2. He absolutely loves his teachers. It is a very nurturing & personable environment. He has learned his letters, shapes, numbers and some Spanish. He has learned good habits and discipline as well. We are sad that we have to move from the Heights and from the school. None of the schools we've toured in far NW Houston compare."

"Esperanza is a good preschool and offered my children a safe enviroment. The thing I liked about the school was that it offered both a full time program and a part time program called short stops. Short stops offers more of an educational approach then a regular MDO program and that was important to us. There was not always the best communication at the school, but that is something that they worked to fix this past year. Teacher turnover can be a problem at times. However, in the past several years the quality of teacher has improved. Many of my children's teachers were college students who were majoring in early childhood education. They brought that education to the classroom. This made the learning process that much greater. I always felt my childen were learning something that would help them on the road to kindergarten. Our family have made great friendships at Esperanza and have been very happy there."
