"Smithfield Learning Center is perfect environment to meet the education needs of my 4 year old granddaughter. She is learning in a safe, holistic, and Christian environment.
The staff is caring, compassionate and concerned about each child. Her teachers work to guide her in mastering age appropriate developmental skills, giving her a sense that she "can do it." The directors, Mr. and Mrs. Smith are "hands on" and active in securing that my granddaughter has the tools, environmental opportunities to aide her in being the best she can be. I believe that a child's success in life is impacted by the education given to them. I highly recommend Smithfield Learning Center."
