Parent Testimonials

Children “R” Us is amazing. Because of the great start they gave my daughter she is now in Kindergarten and reading at a second grade level. I am currently discussing with her teachers the possibility of having her skip 1st grade. Her current teacher has nothing but praise for the foundation she received from Children “R” Us and says all the time how she wishes that all her students could have such a great start. The staff is amazing and so caring. I wish I could transport them all too where we currently live so that my son could be a part of their amazing program. Ms. Gina

I have 2 children that have attended this school. 1 attended for 3.5 years and is not in public skills, in the GATE program for gifted children, role model student award 2 years in a row and in the accelerated reading program. Now my 2nd child is attending there and is following his footsteps. They teach not only academics, but manners and leadership also. My children enjoy it and as a mother I am at peace when I leave to work knowing my kids are in the best hands. I would highly recommend it to everyone who wants the best for their child. Ms. Ledesma

We love this school. We have 5 & 3 years old kids there. We put our 5 year old in 3 different schools before we settled down in this school because he was not learning anything and he was not happy either. Some of the schools have too many kids and therefore can’t pay attention to individual kid’s need. We are very happy that we found this school. It has small class size and very affordable. Although they might not have the latest/biggest playground, but they sure pay attention to kid’s education needs. Our kids have learned so much, reading, math skills and even behavior control. I can’t say enough about this school. We highly recommend this school and their program! Janet A

This school is amazing…. I’m really happy with the Administrators and the teachers. Before my son went to this school he was really behind in talking he was 3yrs old and his speech was in the 1 1/2 year old. He has been in this school for 6 months he talks so much now he knows how to count, the colors, he know his ABC’s. I think this school is amazing recommend this school over 100%. Tayla

This schools academically focused structure has made a world of difference, for both of my children. Every day when I pick them up, I am amazed at how much they have to tell me about their day. Five stars don’t say enough about how much. We love this school. Mrs. Smith

My two daughters attend Children “R” Us. One is in Kindergarten and on is in Pre School. This school is just amazing. My daughter who is in Kindergarten started school here when she was 2 1/2. She was shy and didn’t talk much. She is now reading and writing at first grade level, she comes stating facts about the solar system too, which she loves. She says she wants to be an astronaut. My 3 year old is can write her name by memory and any other word, if you spell it to her. Not only is there education superb, they also teach the children manners, respect and what to do in an emergency. Both of my daughters love going to school and speak very proudly of what they learn each day. I am so glad to have found this school. I love it, the teachers and those who run it. They are amazing.

Children “R” Us. . . Where do I begin? This school has been nothing less than excellent. My daughter has been attending CRU since 2007 and she has learned so much. She learned how to read (at the age of four), do math, recite poems and work with classmates. They also teach children how to have self control, obedience, self-discipline and sharing. She loves this school. The teachers are amazing and do their best every day to ensure all of the students needs are met. I would recommend anyone to CRU in a heartbeat. Children “R” Us is AMAZING!!!!

Children “R” Us (CRU, Ventura) has proven to be the best school that two working parents could have asked for. They’re commitment to education is unparalleled. The Administrators and staff strive to teach my two sons the importance of values, such as INTEGRITY, RESPECT, COMPASSION, INDEPENDENCE, and the significance of TEAM WORK. Thanks to CRU, my 5 year old son has surpassed the requirements for first grade and my two year old can speak fluidly and is able expresses himself like no other two year old I have ever encountered. Because of the confidence I have in CRU, I have become a self-appointed ambassador and recommended them to people I encounter on a day-to-day basis. I will always be grateful to CRU for all that they have done for my sons, now and in the future. Respectfully, D & S. Harrison

My 5 year old daughter is going to this school for last 2 years since we moved in the area from Michigan. There is no word to describe the excellence of this program. My child learned discipline and routine work. Their approach to teach reading and writing was very appropriate to her age. She was engaged with the homework and always willing to complete them in time. Teachers were very patient and kind to all the students. She learned lot of new things she didn’t know before. We were always informed about what’s going on in the school. This school is second to none, when it comes for a choice to be selected as a kid’s environment for learning. This is an amazing program!!

Children “R” Us is an excellent school. I have a 6 year old son in the Kinder program and a 2 year old daughter in the early pre-school program. Both my children have excelled greatly while at Children “R” Us. My sons reading, writing and math skills are at the first grade level. I have been told by other parents that do not have their children at this school that they are shocked at how advanced my kids are. Additionally, the children are taught to have good manners, table etiquette and to give thanks. They use the golden rule and are encouraged daily to do their best. My kids love their teachers and enjoy going to school every day. The teachers have surpassed my expectations; they sincerely care about the children’s growth. I would encourage parents to enroll their kids in Children “R” Us with confidence that they will agree this is an amazing school. Mrs. Garcia

My daughter Isabella has attended this school since she was 24 months old. She will soon be completing Kindergarten. She has learned and blossomed so much. Not only has she excelled academically but also in her values and self expectations. I have the peace of mind that she is in a safe environment while she is there and always learning something positive that will build her a strong foundation. She loves everyone of the staff members and has been supported emotionally during difficult times. Thank you Children “R” Us for being such an important part of my daughter’s life and thank you for having a fabulous staff! Ms. Lopez

If you have ever walked foot into this school you know that it instills integrity, fairness and honesty in all the children my son came home as a 2 year old saying everyone had to be honest. Alisa Baldwin

This is an awesome school for preschool to Kindergarten as well as after school program. We love this school and my kids have been in this school since 2010. They provide a great foundation for kid’s behavior and academy. We highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a great start for the kids. Ms. Teresa A.

I have two children who have both been going to Children “R” Us since they were two years old. I have been extremely pleased with the school and how they have helped shaped my children’s future. When we were originally looking for preschools in Ventura, every school talked about how they did not want to push the children and teach them outside their comfort zone. When I met with the Administrator and Director, they talked about how they try to create a learning environment where the children are exposed to everything from science and math to creating fun art projects and poetry. My daughter will now be graduating kindergarten this year from Children “R” Us and is able to perform both academically and socially above my expectations. Allissa Anderson

We could not have picked a better school for our children to start at, Children “R” Us has done a fantastic job of growing our children and because of that, they are prepared for the next grade. My son is a high performer in his class, and much of this is due to the teaching and the teachers. Great school! Renee Sampson

Teachers are phenomenal. Administrators wonderful. The children learn so much and are academically advanced when they graduate. It is very evident that they care about your children and their success. I wish they took kids up to 6th grade. I highly recommend this program. It is the strongest in the county. I had three kids who attended there. Naomi
