“We are thrilled to have our son cared for by Miss Jaineesh. He started just after they opened in the fall of 2016, as our older daughter had previously been cared for by Miss Jaineesh also, and even now that our daughter is in kindergarten has come back to spend some of the school breaks with her. We’d experienced quite a few different dayhomes and caregivers prior to joining Art and Soul, due to the closure of dayhomes or people moving, etc. and no one has come close to the care provided by Miss Jaineesh. Our prior experiences have been a mixed bag to say the least but we are so happy with the genuine care and love that goes into the Art and Soul program – we can’t say enough wonderful things about it. We know that Miss Jaineesh genuinely cares for the children, and more than that, does the job because she loves it and is passionate about it, which is a rare find in our experience. Being able to drop my son off each morning and know that he is spending the day with someone who is sincerely interested in his wellbeing, development and growth is priceless. Not only do we know that he is being extraordinarily well cared for day to day, all of our communication and interaction with the Art and Soul administration has been fantastic, professional and responsive. We would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone!”

“My family is so thankful that A&S Montessori is a part of our lives! Our daughter loves going every day, and she has learned so much in a short time while also having a lot of fun. We never have to worry about whether the food is nutritious enough or whether the activities inspire fun and learning, and our daughter always comes home smiling and full of stories about her friends. Jaineesh in particular is amazing and a part of our family. She gave wonderful support when I was due to have a second baby. We are excited for our son to start at A&S Montessori next month.”

“We brought our daughter into Art and Soul Infant/toddler program under Pooja’s care when she was 11.5 months old and had a very good feeling about her and the Montessori program immediately. We interviewed several other day homes in the area and none of them came close to impressing us as much as Pooja and her cousin Jenny did. She is fed healthy, age appropriate meals, they do lots of activities, and socializing them and learning manners seems to be a key priority, which it was for us as well. They have a strict no TV policy and, weather permitting, they spend time outdoors every day. On special occasions they do a special activity and/or craft – we got a very cute framed footprint on canvas as well as some treats and cards from the older kids on Valentine’s Day. We are sent updates daily via email with their daily report (meals, diapers, activities, etc.), as well as pictures taken throughout the day. Being that this was our first child we were very apprehensive about entrusting her care to someone else, but so far we have been very impressed, have had no concerns, and feel that we definitely made the right decision. She is happy both when we drop her off and pick her up, and the other children seem to be kind and well-mannered also. I have briefly met a couple of the other parents and they seem nice as well. We have had no problems or concerns as of yet, but if an issue did arise we would feel comfortable talking to her about it and feel that she would be receptive to concerns/feedback.”

“We are so grateful to have Sam in a preschool environment where he is loved, appreciated, and challenged in a way that helps him develop and grow. Jaineesh has a very natural intuition with all children in her care, and finds unique and loving ways of helping them be their best selves. We, as parents, have learned so much from Jaineesh! “
