Hear what our Parents have to say about us!
I have noticed a great improvement in my daughter's work since I have decided to place her at Expressions Educational & Cultural Center. Since being at Expressions my daughter was promoted to the Eagle Program, and I am a firm believer in the adage ... " it takes a village to raise a child." The children are very focused, and they have the great care of respectful teachers who in my eyes have the knowledge and expertise to help feed their little brains with all they need to excel.
Expressions Educational & Cultural Center offers children the opportunity to make friends and learn new skills. The staff demonstrates a full range of educational, recreational and fitness activities for the children. They teach core values and enhance leadership skills that our children can build a foundation.
My son attends the Expressions Educational & Cultural Center's after school program. I have found this program to be effective in providing an environment that supports his learning, and also reinforces his schoolwork.
He became more focused and is eager to explore and learn on his own. I have also seen improvement in his social skills and behavior. I am very pleased with the services being provided for him.
Expressions Educational Center is a remarkable institution for school age children. Ms. Patsy Dunstan is the Director of the center. She is a mother and a nurturer to the children in her care. The center operates on an after-school basis during the school year, and on a full-time basis during the summer months. All year-round students are provided with nutritional well-balanced meals: breakfast, snack, lunch, and dinner. All children attending the Center are schooled in reading, math, and music. They have access to age-appropriate books and other materials to help engage and entice their eager minds. The games played are not only fun but there is always a learning theme behind them. Throughout the school year there are scheduled trips to the park and library. I would highly recommend Expressions Education & Cultural Center, and I am sorry that my children are over the age to attend the center.
