"They have wonderful music and creative movement (gym) programs for all the students each week. They offer additional after-school enrichment programs such as Fitness Fun, Cooking, Nature Program and an Art Enrichment. There is also a Mommy and Me program for two year olds. The school runs a summer camp in a shaded yard that has a sprinkler, bike path, sand box, metal 5 person bike wheel, metal play helicopter, large wooden climb on train and a big playscape with slides, climbers and sliding pole. My son went there and loved it."

Next week, Trumbull Patch is looking for the "Readers' Choice: Best St. Patrick's Day Destination." The voting begins Monday morning.

Editor's NoteAn Internet poll is not the most ideal vote-collection system in the world, as we all know. That's why we always strive to be 100 percent clear with our readers at Patch that this is not in any way a scientific poll. Our readers' choice features are designed to be a fun and completely friendly expression of our collective passion for great food, great service or a great product, all close to home. It's also a fantastic way for small and medium business owners — the lifeblood of our local economy — to show how much they appreciate their customers. We take a look at comments, reviews as well as the poll, not just any one aspect, in communicating back to readers who among the group of businesses may rise to the top in readers' minds.And even if one business mobilizes more "votes" over another, everyone comes away with a lot of visibility, great displays of loyalty and, best yet, our corner of the web now has a great deal more information about local businesses. We live and shop here too, so if anyone wants to learn more about how they can interact with their customers on Patch or have any suggestions for future readers' choice features, don't hesitate to reach out to Trumbull local editor Aaron Leo (aaron.leo@patch.com) or Regional Editor Michael Dinan at michaeld@patch.com.
