This is absolutely the best preschool in Colorado Springs. I have taught there and have many friends who's children attend currently. The school is NAEYC accredited and maintains a high level of quality education and care for their students as well as staff. They provide amazing support for their families. If you are new to the area and looking for a great preschool for your child this is it. I strongly recommend calling and asking for a tour to learn more about what Young Scholars Academy has to offer you and your family.
As a former employee and having children enrolled in the infant room and preschool program, I can say that YSA is dedicated to the kids, families, and teachers they employ. They make it a priority to give teachers the resources they need to provide the children with a fun, hands on, educational day. The classrooms and outdoors area are taken care of beautifully! Wonderful place to work or enroll your kiddos!
I have worked at this center off and on since 2010 or so. Many things have changed at YSA, however it has all been positive changes. There have been upgrades to the building, the playgrounds and the classrooms. Teachers who started out as assistants ( much like myself) are encouraged to grow in the field and become leads. Even kids who used to attend the center now work there. The admin team genuinely cares about their staff and go above and beyond to showcase this. They care about their families, and have done fundraisers for families affected with illness, and staff members whose spouses were injured at work. Ultimately they care about the kids in this community and push for higher standards across the board so all kids can have quality care in the state of Colorado. I have moved on in my career and now work elsewhere, however will forever recommend YSA as a place for people to take their children, and it is a place I intend to take my children when I start my family.
My family and I are new to the Colorado Springs area and toured multiple daycare centers. We booked a tour here and were kinda over the entire process but we were really blown away when we showed up for our tour. Amanda was AMAZING! So personable and informative and understanding! She made us finally feel completely at ease. Our daughter was 3 months old upon her enrollment and I was not crazy about going back to work but the staff here are PHENOMENAL! Even with being able to view my child throughout the day, her teachers took time out to send pictures of her and do everything they could to reassure us she is in great hands. No body will ever care for your child more than you but these people are a great choice. I’m naturally a skeptical person but I’ve been hard put to find an issue with this place. It’s only been a month but my husband and I are very impressed and happy so far. Mrs. Trista and Mrs. Margaret are so nice and gentle with the infants, I really couldn’t ask for more. Thank you Young Scholars for making this transition easier on me and on my family!
We started at YSA when our oldest was 3 months (now 3 years) and had nothing but wonderful care for both our girls. All the teachers became our family and loved on our girls like they were their own. From the infant rooms to the preschool rooms our girls learned everyday and we knew they were in great hands while we worked. Due to some family decisions we had to move on to a new center and it was the hardest decision we had to make. We will definitely miss everyone at YSA and will continue to recommend them to anyone needing care for their littles!
Young Scholars Academy deserves more than a 5-star review! This is by far the best childcare center that my daughter has attended. From the first point of... more
Choosing someone else to care for your children is always a challenge. Moving to a new city where you have no referrals makes it even more challenging.... more
