  • Parent Reviews from Blue Skies and Butterflies:

    “Our son has been thriving! The staff has been fantastic and Richa has been a real pleasure to deal with. The atmosphere is very nurturing and we have always felt that our son is in a place where he gets plenty of attention and is not lost in the mix.”

    “Our child has been attending Blue Skies for the past 2 1/2 years and our family could not be more happy or satisfied, so much so that this year we opted to keep her at the school for private kindergarten rather than ‘reap’ the financial benefit of not having to pay for her pre-K year. This is a school that is vested in your child, that wants to see your child excel, that offers love, support and commitment to what you cherish most…your child. I am thankful everyday I ventured into this quaint little school on Davis Street… I hope you do the same.”

    “Both of my children attended Blue Skies and Butterflies. My oldest child attended their kindergarten program and did exceedingly well due to the excellent teaching and small ratio before going to a public school for first grade. We saw a digression of the progress after going to a public school and I am very glad of the strong academic foundation established in kindergarten. My youngest son has been at this school for over two years and will be attending the kindergarten as well. Both children have enjoyed and loved the teachers and have done extremely well. The school also provides nontraditional academic ways of learning such as with field trips and other hands on activities including music, gardening, art and interactive imaginative learning allowing children to learn hands on.”
