We enrolled our daughter at Buddha’s Light Private School as soon as she was old enough. On our first visit, we knew that the school was going to be a perfect fit. The classes are small and the teachers are fantastic. All of them are very dedicated and full of energy and life. In addition, the school offers an immersive Mandarin language class for their daycare and pre-K age children. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found this school. Our daughter has progressed exceptionally well and she is fluent in Mandarin. We wish we could continue past pre-K but she’ll be back for their after school program. Everyone at the school, especially the director, makes you feel like you are part of a larger family. Buddha’s Light is highly recommended.

Our daughter has really done well at Buddha’s Light. She is 2 ½ and we, of course, worry about her health and happiness, socialization, and development. She seems very excited every day to go to school and happy at the end of the day. The learning environment, activities, structure, fresh food, happy people at work every day…all very important. They have an indoor bounce house for rain days or cold weather, which is neat.

The report cards at the end of day are really good and the message boards keep us up to date. All helpful information for coordinating care. Her reports always say she was in a happy mood, what she ate, how long she napped, etc. Our daughter has a strong personality, and I secretly hope there are no 2 year old “meltdowns” like we see at home. I have noticed at home that she is more interested in cleaning up and reading and so forth. We were worried about babies getting sick at regular daycare, but the BLPS facility is clean. You can tell everybody is very vigilant and conscientious, not like other places.

So, we are very happy and feel like the environment is enriching for our daughter. We plan to add our other daughter at 18 months, too. We like the tenured teachers and the Mandarin immersion for our baby’s future development. When they are old enough, we hope the Mandarin will help them get into a tri-lingual charter school and do the after school program at BLPS.
