Le Chaperon Rouge Child Care

PARENT TESTIMONIALS:
Le Chaperon Rouge has continued to grow over the past 27 years in business with a small advertising budget. How do we do it? Word of mouth from satisfied customers!

From the first day on, the Le Chaperon Rouge teachers have approached me at drop off and pick up times and have made a real effort to develop a relationship with me. They speak with me everyday about my daughters' struggles and successes. They show a genuine love for my daughters and a REAL excitement regarding their progress!
---- Kristin Livingston, mother of 2

You have an excellent staff that has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help Alex feel comfortable. Your Center Director and Staff were relentless in their efforts to help Alex adjust to being away from home and we extend our heartfelt thanks. Alex has gained an immeasurable amount of self-confidence. As I come to a close, I try to think of the good and the bad of our experience while at Le Chaperon Rouge. The good far exceeds the space on this page. The only bad is that our time with you has come to an end.

I am pleased to say I found all four of my demands for my child, (1) high-quality teachers, (2) small student to teacher ratio, (3) non-denominational moral guidance, and (4) a large variety of traditional and modern subjects and teaching, plus an incredible staff totally in tune to my child and all the other children in regard to their individual development and personalities. It is going to be a huge challenge to find anything comparable to this school in my son's future. This school is a bargain.
--- Donna M. DiDonna, Parent

Not only does Le Chaperon Rouge provide excellent care, but they also provide my children with great education. I feel both my children are learning and growing every day. My children will definitely be ready for elementary school because of the structured curriculum.
---Loretta Stanton, mother of two

My husband and I are overjoyed we made the decision to move to your school when it was built. I don't even consider this day care. You do so much more than watch over our children. The amount of learning activities and fun activities that are offered are helping to shape my girls into children that love to learn and also love to explore different activities. I really can't thank you enough for giving us a superior school to prepare our young children for elementary school and beyond.
--- Chistine Comune

The curriculum they follow at the school has to be the best around, I just shake my head in amazement at everything my son has learned. I would definitely recommend Le Chaperon Rouge to anyone looking for a premium daycare/preschool."
----Carla Awroski

My kids have loved coming to Le Chaperon Rouge. The teachers are well chosen and genuinely caring. The academics my kids receive makes them so prepared for Kindergarten. Also, the support and encouragement that the teachers give the kids truly helps to build their self-esteem and confidence. I am grateful to the director and teachers.
---Isus Azizuddin, teacher, mother of 2

Our child has better manners, listens better, is much more socialized, verbalized needs earlier, is much better spoken, and hit all developmental milestones earlier than her peers that attended different child cares, or did not attend daycare at all.
---Ray & Amy Cebulis

Both of my kids are all around better students and kids. Socially, they have learned respect for others and self, and academically they seem to be surpassing children their age who attend other schools.
---Sara Sebring, teacher, mother of 2

My children have gained a sense of independence. I see a huge difference when it comes to grown and development. My youngest daughter loves to read and learn. Kailyn has her own “circle time” on the weekends.
---Korrey Robinson, mother of 3

I researched all daycare facilities in the area and visited each of them. I went with Le Chaperon Rouge because of the certification of the teaching staff, the curriculum foundation and all age levels, and the structure they seemed to provide.
---Alisa McKinnie, high school principal & mother of two

TEACHER TESTIMONIALS:

Mrs. Moga-Kennedy and Le Chaperon Rouge are great to work for. They give employees the chance to advance in their careers by encouragement and positive attitude. I feel that I have grown as a person and have been able to contribute to all the families throughout my many years of employment.
---Beverly Hartwell, director, associates degree in early childhood education, R.N., employed with Le Chaperon Rouge since 1988

Our wonderful centers are better than the competition due to educated staff, amazing managers, ample supplies, and an owner that cares about the children and her staff. Our curriculum educates the whole child. I have worked at other centers, and they do not compare with our high quality.
---Shelly Davis, associates degree in early childhood education, employed with Le Chaperon Rouge since 2001

When you walk into our centers, they smell and look clean, because we take pride in our schools. The staff and director work together as a team.
---Michele Olds, associates degree in early childhood education, employed with Le Chaperon Rouge since 1996

The best part of my job is the love I receive from the children, and helping them all. I honestly love working at Le Chaperon Rouge. The children mean a lot to me, and the staff are super.

Dear Miss Kim,

My daughters attended two other preschools in the area before attending Le Chaperon Rouge. The reason I sought out a third preschool was because I was never fully satisfied with the level of education they were receiving, the accessibility of the Director, the communication between myself and the teachers or the cleanliness of the facilities.

After researching and visiting several other schools in the area, I found Le Chaperon Rouge. The first month my daughters attended Le Chaperon Rouge I remember speaking to you and their teachers with tears in my eyes – tears of joy! From the first day on, the Le Chaperon Rouge teachers have approached me at drop off and pick up times and have made a real effort to develop a relationship with me. They speak with me everyday about my daughters' struggles and successes. They show a genuine love for my daughters and a REAL excitement regarding their progress. As a Director, you have always been available, approachable, professional, knowledgeable and extremely organized – the exact qualities that give parents faith that a school is going to be run well. The education my daughters have received has been incredible! The curriculum is right on track for their age group and is presented in ways that spark my girls' interest and make them want to learn. They go to school and come home excited and happy! They have also been exposed to art, music, history, French, dance, morals and values, manners, indoor and outdoor play, and many other areas which are helping to mold them into very well-rounded little girls. The food they receive is healthy and nutritious and they have tried and developed tastes for foods that have been served at school that they would have never touched at home. And on top of all that, the place is colorful and immaculate!

In closing, I would just like to thank you and your staff for caring so much about what you do. My daughters have grown tremendously since attending Le Chaperon Rouge and are more than prepared for kindergarten next year. I thank you all very much for a wonderful experience. If there is ever a parent who would like a personal reference for Le Chaperon Rouge, PLEASE have him or her call me!

Sincerely,

Kristin Livingston

Dear Ms. Michelle and Ms. Ada,

I would like to take this opportunity to express my happiness that our son, Gavin, is in your classroom. The love, structure, and nurturing environment are exactly what Gavin has needed to embark on his educational journey. With the knowledge he has gained while in your care, there is no doubt in my mind he is completely prepared to begin Kindergarten in the fall.

I know that the experiences he has had in your classroom will remind him that education can be challenging but also fun and rewarding. The smile on his face, at the end of a day when he has mastered a new skill, is all I need to see to know he is in the best environment for learning.

The school is very blessed to have the talent of 2 very skilled and caring teachers such as you. With full confidence I would recommend any friend or family member to entrust their child to your care. In the challenging educational environment of today, there is no time to lose with the minds of tomorrow. I do truly appreciate all that you have done for our son.

Sincerely,

Kathleen Keller


Dear Mrs. Moga,

We are writing to express our gratitude to you and to all the faculty and staff of Le Chaperon Rouge Elementary. We greatly appreciate all the effort and hard work that is put forth by all to make Le chaperon Rouge Elementary such an outstanding institution. We are impressed by the way the staff goes "above and beyond" what is expected of them to ensure our kids have a challenging, yet non threatening, education environment.

We feel very comfortable with the small student to teacher ratio and the close-knit group of families that work cooperatively to ensure that the best possible resources are available to all the students. The smaller class sizes make communication between parents and teachers more personal. We enjoy have the opportunity every day to interact with our kids' teachers and express any concerns that we may have. They always make time in their busy schedules to greet us at the end of the day when we return to pick up our kids. We love to hear all the positive remarks from the teachers, as well as, our kids that keep us up to speed about what happened during the day.

We feel good because we know that their school is a place they look forward to going every day and this feedback indicates to us that they have a positive attitude about learning. We would definitely feel comfortable recommending Le Chaperon Rouge Elementary to anyone interested in finding a superior learning environment for their children. Thanks again.

Sincerely,

Bob & Susan Wickman


Dear Mrs. Moga,

Thank you so much for giving Alex the opportunity to attend Le Chaperon Rouge. He has been a student for over two years and we are very proud of his progress. You have an excellent staff that has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help Alex feel comfortable. Your Center Director and Staff were relentless in their efforts to help Alex adjust to being away from home and we extend our heartfelt thanks.

As the close of the school year approaches, we are amazed with the amount of knowledge Alex has gained with the kindergarten program.The teacher has a tremendous talent for working with children and it truly shows in Alex. I feel confident that first grade will be a breeze thanks to the curriculum and Your kindergarten teaching is more than drilling letters, numbers and words and we are proud of the loving manner in which she operates her classroom.

The French lessons at Le Chaperon Rouge have been an added bonus. Alex has impressed many with his second language, and what a joy that has brought us.

Alex has gained an immeasurable amount of self-confidence. As I come to a close, I try to think of the good and the bad of our experience while at Le Chaperon Rouge. The good far exceeds the space on this page. The only bad is that our time with you has come to an end.


When I moved to Rocky River I had to wait to take my three boys into Le Chaperon Rouge. It was worth the wait. My children have blossomed into compassionate, friendly little boys. My second son is more than ready for kindergarten. LCR is a great starting point for the continuing family community life that Rocky River has.
--- Cindy Newman, Kyle, Alec, and Stefan's Mom


Le Chaperon Rouge, has been my childcare provider for my daughter since she was two and a half years old. I feel that the staff at Le Chaperon Rouge is doing a great job with all the kids they have. I am impressed at what my daughter has learned from the teachers prior to going to kindergarten. My daughter is now attending kindergarten at Le Chaperon Rouge due to the reviews I'd heard. She enjoys her teacher and I feel that she has improved even more with this class. I would recommend others to have their child attend Le Chaperon Rouge.


To whom it may concern --

My son attended a private kindergarten elsewhere, and I was looking for (1) high-quality teachers, (2) small student to teacher ratio, (3) non-denominational moral guidance, and (4) a large variety of traditional and modern subjects and teaching.

I am pleased to say I found all four of my demands for my child, plus an incredible staff totally in tune to my child and all the other children in regard to their individual development and personalities.

It is going to be a huge challenge to find anything comparable to this school in my son's future. This school is a bargain when one considers the alternatives out there.

Donna M. DiDonna, Parent


My children have attended LCR and LCRE for a total of almost seven years. My daughter completed kindergarten and first here, and my son will do the same. The quality of the education my children have received is excellent and I like the small classes and individual attention. The hours and food program make it even more attractive for me. I like the fact that with our busy schedules and hectic mornings, I do not have to make breakfast or pack lunches. I would highly recommend this facility, and have come to regret putting my daughter in public school for second grade.

Cindy Polomsky


Le Chaperon Rouge:

My daughter, Mandy, has been at the school for first grade and is now in second. I have been extremely pleased with the school and her development. Many studies show that learning a second language promotes faster development in children. This makes the French program so important. It still amazes me how Mandy can count to 100, know the colors and sing songs in French. There are other studies out that state learning a musical instrument at a young age helps in math and other studies. The option of having keyboard lessons at the school is fantastic. The kids not only get lessons on keyboards, but they do not lose time at night to go to lessons. The small class sizes and the great teachers make this school a great place for a child to learn. With the small class sizes, it also seems to build strong friends among the kids. The curriculum is much advanced over a public school. I have second graders on my street that Mandy plays with. The things they are doing in second grade, Mandy was doing early in first grade--the difference is incredible! "Expectations are so important--because you're going to find what you are looking for." At Le Chaperon Rouge, they simply expect and teach the kids to do better. Simply put, an outstanding education is the best thing that we as parents can give our children. I am very happy knowing that when I drop Mandy off, she is getting that outstanding education at Le Chaperon Rouge. Thank you again!!!

Sincerely,

Dave Mortach


To Whom It May Concern:

I have been a teacher for nearly thirty years. In those years I have been involved in teaching in both public schools and private school. I am very happy teaching at LCR, even though I could be earning perhaps double the salary in a public school situation. It is very rewarding to work with the children in our school. They have a genuine love of learning and parents who are very supportive of their educational efforts.

I feel that our school has a wonderful environment for learning. The children are very motivated, happy learners. The staff is dedicated to creating the most positive learning atmosphere possible. As an example, our upper grades are currently creating an Inventor's Hall of Fame based on their study of Inventors and the process of invention. Our Kindergartners are practicing their reading skills by reading to their classmates from sight wordbooks, phonics readers, and "Bright and Early" readers books. Our first graders are creating a museum of Outer Space with independent learning projects.

Our children consistently test well in standardized testing. They possess what I feel is a genuine love of learning. I really enjoy teaching at LCR Elementary School.


To whom it may concern:

As a working mother, it is very important that my children are well cared for on a daily basis. It is certainly hard for me to leave my children every day, but Le Chaperon Rouge makes it easier on me, because I know my children are happy and they are taken care of well.

Not only does Le Chaperon Rouge provide excellent care, but they also provide my children with great education. I feel both my children are learning and growing every day. My children will definitely be ready for elementary school because of the structured curriculum. My son will be attending Kindergarten in the fall at Le Chaperon Rouge.

My children are also very happy with the daycare. I can tell just by their expressions when I drop them off and pick them up. They have never expressed any negative emotion. In fact, they always seem excited about their day.

I highly recommend Le Chaperon Rouge to any family seeking care for their children. You will be very happy you made this decision. I know it is a very important decision to make, but choosing Le Chaperon Rouge would be the right one.

Sincerely,

Loretta Stanton

Dear Ms. Moga and Ms. Hartwell,

"With this being the last year that we will be attending Le Chaperon Rouge Day Care Center, I find it important for me to both compliment you, and thank you for caring for my children over the past 5 years.  Although Nicole will be attending Kindergarten at Le Chaperon Rouge Elementary School next fall, I wanted to make sure I didn't forget to acknowledge the Day Care Center.

Placing your children in Day Care is one of the most difficult challenges a parent can face.  I remember looking at several centers before coming to Le Chaperon Rouge.  One important factor that impressed me about Le Chaperon Rouge were the security features.  From the security locked front door, to the video cameras in each room, I felt reassured that when I left my children in the morning that they would be safe.  On several occasions I remember viewing tapes from the day to see how my child was adjusting to this new environment.

Additionally, I was impressed with the food service that provided balanced meals and snacks, as well as a clean cafeteria for meals.  The educational services provided by Le Chaperon Rouge included a good variety that seemed to satisfy both my children and myself.  I know my pediatrician was impressed when she asked my children to count and they counted in French.  I know that both of my children have been given an excellent educational start, and will be well prepared to start elementary school.

Again, I would like to thank you for being such genuinely caring and loving individuals.  It is extremely difficult to leave your children's care in the hands of anyone other than family, but you have become our extended family.  I will continue to recommend Le Chaperon Rouge Day Care Center and Elementary School to anyone looking for a wonderful place for their children to learn and play. Keep up the great work!!"

Mrs. Moga,

I wanted to express my satisfaction with the Hudson Le Chaperon Rouge.  The rate at which my girls have increased their knowledge of the basics (counting, recognition of letters, numbers, shapes, colors, etc.) has accelerated well beyond my expectations.

The number of extra activities offered at your school is tremendous.  It gives the parents an easy way to engage their children in different physical and mental activities that are usually difficult to fit into their lives.  Offering 2 foreign languages at this young age will benefit them beyond their current understanding.  The computer, gym and dance classes are an easy way for the kids to explore different activities at their own pace.

It is amazing how much they enjoy attending your school.  They rarely cry when we drop them off and they are always smiling when I pick them up.  My 2 year old includes all 3 of her teachers (Ms. Sue, Kelly and Lindsay) in the list of people that love her.  This speaks volumes to the types of teachers you have in your school.  They are making bonds with the children that, in my opinion, are vital for my children to grow into loving, caring adults.

Melissa is doing a great job running the school.  She is attentive to my comments and suggestions and she is very engaged and expedient in resolving issues.  Her approach with parents and the children is also commendable.  She knows everyone and my girls love her as much as the teachers they spend most of their time with.  She is taking the time to get to know the children and this makes me feel even more confident about the care they are receiving.

Overall, my husband and I are overjoyed we made the decision to move to your school when it was built in Hudson.  I don't even consider this day care.  You do so much more than watch over our children.  The amount of learning activities and fun activities that are offered are helping to shape my girls into children that love to learn and also love to explore different activities.

I really can't thank you enough for giving Hudson a superior school to prepare our young children for elementary school and beyond.

Best Regards,

Christine Comune


Miss Kathy has been our daughter Arianna's preschool teacher at Le Chaperon Rouge in Hudson for the past five months. Our daughter came into Kathy's class just as she was turning five years old. She came into the class not recognizing any of her letters or numbers, or knowing any letter sounds. She also did not look forward to going to "school" in the morning. She was just not enjoying her day.

It has been five months. Arianna has learned a tremendous amount in these past five months; mainly to the efforts of Miss Kathy. Arianna recognizes all her numbers and letters, along with knowing her letter sounds. She is able to sound out three letter words and read from her "Bob" books. Arianna is able to count and add small numbers together. The best comment I can make about her progress is that she is learning a significant amount each day. We were reviewing some of her work one evening and she turned, smiled and said, "Mommy, I am learning a lot!" She was quite proud of herself and her work. She has finally been challenged enough in the classroom, that school has become interesting and fun, while she is simultaneously learning. She brings home all of her class work, art work and crafts. I ask her questions about all of the different topics -- from animals to math -- and she consistently remembers the lessons she has learned. The fact that she remembers, tells me she is interested in the topic, and the topic is presented in a way that makes it interesting to a five year old who is now interested in going to "school" each day.

Our impression is that Miss Kathy's philosophy is to integrate current, leading edge teaching methodologies with those skills she has used successfully in the past (e.g. at Montessori). This philosophy, along with her hard work and conscientious, caring attitude, has produced results with Arianna that have exceeded our expectations.

Thank you Miss Kathy.

Best Regards,
Arianna's parents,
