    Comment:  Program: Academic Summer EnrichmentAge of Child: 8Likes: I loved the fact that it was on week to week basis, so we had an opportunity to do other specialty camps and come back to Brainy Academy in between. It was a 3 hr program, they did Math and English and the last hour was spent on either Science experiments or Art or Lego robotics. My son made lots of new friends and enjoy the program. It didnt feel like summer school, because he also got to have fun. The combination of their summer program and some one on one tutoring really got him ready for the new school year.What would you change? Some days I wished it was longer than 3hrs, but other days it was just enough for me to get my errands done.Would you send your child(ren) again? YesDo you recommend? Highly recommendDo you have any other information to add? They have this great rewards system that kids get to earn "brainy points" for their hard work and trade them in for prizes. My son LOVED that! Will be trying to do the same at home with h.w.

    Comment:  We love it there!My 2 year old currently attends their mini montessori classes and is having a great time. He used to have bad separation anxiety, but the staff and teachers were so friendly and fun, that he warmed up to them very quickly. Now he says "bye mom!" as soon as we're past the front door. He loves it and has become a lot more verbal since starting earlier this summer.

    Comment:  Its a great place, you should stop by and visit them and you will see what I am talking about. Its bright and warm and loving. M 4 yo is in their G & T test prep and My little one is starting their montessori nursery in December. I bring him for their Saturday mommy and me classes to get him used to the environment. I found them by an accident while walking to the coop and I am so happy I did. They are so easy going and nice and even have a hamster and guinea pigs in waiting room for kids to play with. The owner told me that she will start FREE reading hour once a week so keep an eye out for that also.
