There is not a more colorful, musical environment available for young children in this area. Having taught preschool for 30 years, and performed for young children for all of those years I’ve seen many, many child care centers, schools, camps and venues. None of them provide the daily musical experience, let alone professional musicians, at the level D.O.R does. There is, more importantly, an outstanding, caring staff with plenty of experience. The enclosed (walled) outdoor play area, which provides some cover on rainy days, is extremely safe. I love this place!

I love the energy and enthusiasm at Drool of Rock. My child is a very active, passionate, and social being. These are all things that are fostered at Drool of Rock. My child has made new friends, sings new songs, dances new dances and is tired at the end of the day. Counting to twenty in Spanish and writing letters. I am thrilled with the program!

We LOVE Drool of Rock! Our son had an in-home nanny for his first 3 years and we were very worried about how he would adjust to preschool. The staff and children were so incredibly welcoming which helped him transition beautifully. It is a fun, engaging learning environment with caring and competent teachers. Our son loves the music and art focus and it is artfully decorated to support the theme – not dark at all – in fact extremely bright and colorful. As a former early childhood educator who has seen many, many daycare centers and preschools – I do believe this is a top notch preschool environment and would recommend it.

My 2 year old has been going here for almost a year and it has been nothing but a positive experience! I love all the “shows” they put on and the staff is warm and caring. The decor is absolutely awesome every wall is cooler then the next. I will and have recommend DOR to all my friends

My daughter has been enrolled at Drool of Rock since it’s doors opened. I have known the owner personally for over 3 years and trust her and her staff with my child 100%. The center itself is super clean, organized, inviting, and above all else an awesome environment to learn and have FUN! The kids absolutely LOVE it there. The staff is personable, knowledgeable, energetic (which you need with preschoolers) loving, nurturing, and awesome! My daughter is growing there like I never knew she would. Learning new things and making new friends everyday. Which is what preschool is all about! She literally runs through the doors each day to greet her teachers and friends! I couldn’t be happier with our choice to have our daughter learn and grow at DOR and I highly recommend others to do the same!

This environment has been one of the best things that has happened to our daughter. She has been there for 7 months. The enviroment is bursting with learning and fun. The teachers are the best. The culture they create is nothing but kindness. I don’t understand the previous comment/review at all. It does have a McDonalds near it (no impact to the care or experience our daughter has) but the inside is so much fun and bright. The cleanliness is extremly detailed. I would give it 10 stars if I could. There are many other long term parents that are very hapy as well. Our daughter has special needs so she has Infants and Toddlers visit her for quite a few visits each month. The instructors with Infants and Toddlers (who see many environments) consistantly tell me how impressed they are with the facility and teachers. Each one of them has told me how excellent the staff is and what they can see what the staff does and have done for our daughter is truly a gift. The I&T also make comments to me like “how could you not have fun in this place”, etc… Before we came to Drool of Rock, we came for a tour and that was very helpful as well.

My Daughter has been attending D.O.R. coming up on a year . I cant begin to tell you how great of a place this is . I was a little worried about the idea of sending my child to a center because of the potential of it growing to to big . I was scared that she would’nt get the attention that she needed . Well let me just say that I was so wrong . The staff there ROCK ….. She was trained to go to the bathroom , Has learned to count in spanish , Sing in French , Letter’s and shapes etc… I could go on and on . Not only does she learn she is shown so much love everyday she walks thru the door … Every morning she wakes up she is ” Ready to go to Day care ” Her words exactly .. Thanks so much for all that you do for us.

Here is why I LOVE this place: My daughter who went through two other day-care centers, and had a hard time in them, LOVES this place. If you are a parent of a shy child you know the feeling, of stress and relief when this happens. The owner and director along with the teachers went through my daughter’s adjustment along with us every step of the way- and this is something I did not encounter anywhere else. When I drop her off every morning, I feel good, because she is excited to talk to her teachers, friends, sing with Ms. Connie and dance, and do all the wonderful things that the director and the staff tirelessly put together for them. It is a great place that allows their little minds to flourish, while heaving fun!!! Other things I want to mention as far as location: – Nice big rooms with a ton of space for the kids to play and perform their other activities – Very colorful and imagination enhancing decor – Impeccably clean I can’t say enough good things about the place. The staff and management have exceeded our expectations as parents!!

My daughter has been here for almost a year and I could be happier. she has learned everything appropriated for her age,colors, number, songs etc. The staff is always very attentive and I trust them 100 percent. Drool of is definitely the right place for my daughter to be and she couldn’t be happier. and I recommend it to anybody!

I found DROOL OF ROCK and they were a breath of fresh air!! My daughter was their first student to enroll and the staff is so amazing that I now consider them friends and some are even like family to us. One of the teachers is even my daughters godmother. The center is clean & friendly and unlike other day cares they actually follow a structured curriculum. I would recommend this center to any parent who truly cares about their child’s education!! My only wish is that they would have opened sooner!!
