A hidden gem. The school and the teachers are fabulous and provide a great combination of personal care & nurturing environment as well as discipline & focus. They are very responsive to parents' and child's needs and are willing to make extra efforts to ensure that child's development is a top priority. Our daughter was a late learner in some tasks & activities and the teachers provided great help to make her catch-up with the rest of her classmates. I highly recommend this school !!
Our son recently joined Beginnings and we've been very grateful to Cynthia and Betty in the Blue Room for making his transition as easy as it can be. They greet him every day with a smile and genuine warmth. We're very happy we chose Beginnings.
My two year old daughter joined the Beginnings Learning center family in July 2017. It has been the best choice I could have made for her. The teachers are warm and friendly. The facilities are well maintained. My daughter has become a lot more independent. She is always coming home singing new songs and telling me about all the fun activities she did that day. I would definently recommend this school to my friend and family.
We joined Beginnings a few months ago and so far our experience has been nothing short of spectacular. Our son was very warmly welcomed and is thriving. The staff, curriculum and enrichment programs are top notch and simply put, we're thrilled to have found Beginnings and have them as part of our village.
We love Beginnings learning center! After moving from abroad and looking for the best place for our daughter, we found the perfect fit. Beginnings is a loving, safe, caring preschool. Teachers and staff are excellent. Our daughter loves going, she even misses her teachers and friends during weekends! I would recommend this preschool to anyone!
Es bello yo trabajo ahí las maestras muy amigables exelente educacion limpio tiebe un ambiente aradable loamo lindo todoadecuadi lo recomiendo.
Beginnings has been the best choice! My older son started when he was 2 and will graduate next year. He loves attending BLC and seeing his teachers and friends every day. My younger son just started in the Blue room and loves it as well. The teachers are all so lovely - very attentive and loving, yet firm and focused on teaching the kids how to accomplish things on their own. They really instill a pride in learning. The kids get a good balance of classroom activity and playtime. As a working mother, I love the longer hours, but also that my kids aren't the only ones there at pick-up time. BLC has provided us with a wonderful community of families and teachers that care about all of the kids.
We couldn't ask for better. Two years ago when we moved to Santa Monica, from Europe, we didn't know anyone who can help us with finding the right school for our almost 2 year old daughter. We searched and searched and BLC won! The first impression was that it is very clean, have huge classrooms and a very nice size of playground. Then there are extras! Teachers are simply amazing! As we have heard those you meet are those you will say goodbye to at the end of your kids preschool period. So far, and it has been two years for us, they are still there. Very kind, loving, patient and amazing! Our daughter loves them all. Every teacher knows every kids name, even if they are not in their class. They are very thoughtful and are willing to exchange advices with you, accept it or share it. Have I mentioned there is food there?! Every day kids have freshly made food. Two big meals and snacks. There are also little kiddy toilets for every classroom, with little kiddy sinks, it is amazing. At this moment they offer karate classes, music and dance, yoga classes and soccer classes, all once a week. Very affordable. My daughter loves yoga and music classes. I can go on and on about it. I have mentioned all of the important things. Pricing is also very affordable comparing to what you get for it. Also, families are very well chosen. We are quite a community. Very friendly and kind and willing to help if needed. I truly love every kid in my daughter's classroom, and we are friends with most of their parents. I highly recommend Beginning Learning Center as your kids start of schooling. We are there for two years and we intend to stay. With love, Nevena
We've been extremely happy with the care and attention our daughter receives at Beginnings. The teachers are all kind yet firm, and I've been impressed with their knowledge of early childhood development. Since our daughter started there a few months ago we've noticed her communication skills growing at a rapid rate, and whenever we ask her about her day at school, the first word she says is always "Fun!" And in addition, the flexible hours and school-provided meals and snacks make things easy on mom and dad. I would recommend this preschool to anyone.
Beginnings has been the best choice we have made for both our daughters who currently attend the school. The teachers are knowledgeable, nurturing, and creative. I am blown away in seeing the growth and development in both of my girls in a short span of time; Their abilities in communicating better, their level of independence, and most importantly, their love for coming to school every day. The classrooms always reflect the learning that happens every day and the environment is always so organized and well-maintained. Something just felt right about this school from the very beginning, and we couldn't be more pleased in finding this gem of a school in Santa Monica.
We love beginnings learning center( blc) My older son was at this preschool between the years of 2011-2013 and when I got pregnant with my little one- I knew that Beginnings was the only choice for me! Blc is home for us! It's is an extremely nurturing environment with our children as their first priority! My younger son started this past August and almost immediately formed a very deep bond with the blue room teachers! I feel very comfortable leaving him there and know that he will be nothing but happy when I return later in the day!!!! Thank you blc for continuing to be the only choice for my children's early years in education!!!
BLC is a great preschool with great staff member! The school is very clean and has a very modern look. It also has a safe environment indoors and outdoors for children to play and develop! I have been working at beginnings for 2 years and love the curriculum and the school! When I have children I would love to bring them to BLC!!
