Why Choose Hester's

Overview

"I have two children at Hester's Lakecrest School in High Point, ages three and one and one more on the way! I work from home and so many people ask me why I send my children to child care instead of keeping them home with me while I work. Other than the fact that I would never get any work done, I send them to child care for the socialization aspect, the well-rounded meals (my kids eat their veggies at Hester's!!!), and for the personal attention that they receive. If they were home with me while I worked, it would be too tempting to put them in front of the TV and let them watch movies and cartoons for several hours each day.

At Hester's, I know they are playing outside, doing art projects, having story time, socializing with other children, and most importantly learning. I truly believe that they accomplish things more quickly at school because if one child does something, they all want to be able to do it, whether it is making a "happy plate" (eating veggies!!) or being potty-trained. I am thankful for the caring teachers at Hester's who truly seem to take an interest in my children's development and well-being."
