This puts a SMILE on our face!


April 2013, Facebook Post after English Creek Academy collected and shipped overseas approximately four or five boxes of much needed toiletries and special treats to Sergeant Jackson.

....A special thanks to the parents and staff of English Creek Academy. I really appreciate all the love and support that you've shown me during my deployment in Afghanistan. I was really touched by the level of love that was put into each box. The snacks and assortments were enjoyed by me and all the soldiers here at my base. Thank You from the bottom of my heart. You guys really made my day......Thanks Alot

 English Creek Academy:

We would also like to thank you for sharing your beautiful children with us. It truely has been our pleasure to provide an early education for them. Best wishes to you and your family!

The pleasure was all mine, it saddens me that we have to relocate this coming June. I'm not sure there's another school that will be as warm and nurturing as English Creek Academy. My kids learned so much while enrolled there over these last 4 years and we're really gonna miss y'all. Thank You for all your Love and Support.

Dear Laura,
When we met 6 years ago I was so reluctant to enroll my 18 month old in “daycare”.  I toured several area daycares and hired 2 nannies before choosing ECA.  I will never forget picking up my son who smelled like Miss Jean’s perfume because she held him crying in her arms for 2 hours after we dropped him off.  He is now 7 years old and in second grade and cannot wait to go back to the ECA summer camp program.  I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye until next summer so I wanted to send you a note about having two children at ECA full time over the past 5-6 years.

  • Teachers: Most of the teachers are terrific but there are a few that really stand out as being exceptional.   Miss Marlene is the very best teacher.  She is not only a warm and caring person but I feel she actually “teaches” instead of babysitting.   Miss Diane and Miss Sammi are also great assets to your team but you know this already. Also, Miss Marybeth kept the summer camp kids excited about going all summer long.
  • Security/safety:  The very best in the area, without question.
  • Curriculum: Impressive.
    *Note: the varied schedule throughout the day and in the summer camp kept my kids from becoming bored.  There was always something new going on.
  • Field trips: Organized and varied, exciting for the kids.
  • Cleanliness: As best as can be expected with a lot of kids.
  • Modern: I wish you could help St. Joe's with your modernization and efficiency
  • Administration: Owner/Director Laura, always knows what is going on and has her finger on the pulse whether she is there or not.  She responds to every single concern quickly, efficiently, and professionally.
  • Graduation: Impressive, so well organized and truly a memorable family event.


Thank you so much Laura!!

Hi Laura,

It is a sad day for Brian and I as it is the last day for the Twins (for now hopefully). We wanted to take the time to thank you and your staff for everything. You truly have a great organization and everyone makes us feel comfortable and at ease knowing that our children are being well taken care of. From the minute we walk in the door, everyone knows us and our girls. Its a great feeling to know that everyone is so friendly, it definitely gave us a comfort level that is priceless.

I honestly cannot say enough about Diane & Debbie.  We know that our girls are going to miss them dearly and they were the reason they looked forward to going to "school" everyday, to see DebbieDiane (they made their names into one). The girls would wake up and say "we going to see DebbieDiane today"?  They are an asset to your team and always go above and beyond expectations.  We felt the girls were always in good hands because they showed them the same love and caring that we do as parents.  We've watched the twins grow significantly in these 9 months and we believe its because of the structured learning environment you have outlined which Diane & Debbie have executed flawlessly.  The environment is not only fun but informative!  The girls would not have received the same opportunity anywhere else.

We hope that our journey with you and your team does not end today, more like its being postponed.  I will stay in touch with you and would like to take you up on the offer of dropping the girls off a day or two now and then if I need to go on interviews.  Just let me know how that would work please.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for the outstanding care you have given to our son. Shortly, after arriving in the area three years ago, we were accepted to English Creek Academy. As you can imagine, finding a quality daycare provider for Nikita was our highest priority.

Since Nikita's arrival at English Creek Academy, Oksana and I felt very comfortable and safe leaving Nikita. Your staff's demeanor, positive attitude, and work ethics have been appreciated over the years. When we first arrived, we had the ability to watch from afar the care provided on your state-of-the-art monitoring system. Your've always gone above and beyond for our family and that is greatly appreciated. I attribute much of Nikita's character, positive and friendly attitude, and personality to the care and education provided at English Creek Academy.

Thoughout all of my years as a parent, some daycare providers have perfomed well but none of them left a significant impression on me. However, English Creek Academy has done just that! As a retired Air Force member, I've been all over the world with my dughter's and no daycare can compare to yours. I will continue to refer parents to your truly outstanding Child Care Learning Center!

Dear Laura,

I would like to thank you for running such an amazing facility! From day one many years ago, I never worried about the safety of my children. Your school has not only provided me with peace of mind over the years (which is priceless) but has given my children an amazing foundation of intellect. I appreciate your kindness in working with me financially and having a wonderful staff, especially Jean!

Thank you so much!
