    LGCC is the best! I've been sending my kids here since they were 3 months old. They are now 5 and 3 years old. Everyone here is thoughtful caring loving. My kids are extremely well educated because of them. My 5yo is in kindergarten and it's so worth my money to continue sending him here. He's learning at a 1st grade and up level. He's already writing in cursive reading adding/subtracting learning about history world cultures science. They offer extracurricular activities such as computer classes soccer violin. They bring petting zoos on site and do other fun things for all the kids. The tuition is extremely affordable and the hours are convenient. I can't even express how much this place means to my family. I'll be so sad when the kids are graduated for this school. The people are truly one of a kind and so wonderful here. They are our extended family.

    Both my children have attended Looking Glass since they were three months old and it has been a second home for them and the teachers staff and other children are like our extended family. I cannot speak highly enough about the love they show the children the standard of care the quality of education the dedication to meeting each child's needs and the respect and love they show everyone who is part of Looking Glass. Not only do they have an incredible curriculum they also offer fantastic extras right at the school (Mandarin music soccer to name a few). We are moving out of the area and I am so sad to be leaving - this school is a true gem the best school I have come across in all aspects and I recommend it without any reservations!

    We sent our kids to Looking glass as recommended by our neighbors and we have been grateful they did. The school offers excellent education and the teachers mostly Filipinos are very professional and truly love what they are doing. All of them give utmost care to each children in their class almost like their own. The school director/owners are always there to ensure top quality education and safety of the kids. Our daughter learned to read at age 4 our 3 yr old son has pretty awesome math skills. They open from 6 30am to 6 30pm so it fits our schedule very well. Looking Glass Center is second to none!!!

    A second family for my kids. The best kept secret in private schools in NJ. My kids want & love to go to school. My son has moved on my daughter still attends & I wouldn't change a thing.

    I am a HUGE fan of this Day Care Center/School. My daughter has been with this school since age 2. The care takers mostly teachers from the Philippines are warm and receptive to children's and parents needs. Education starts early. My daughter at 41/2 has learned basic reading and math. She enjoys weekly gym and music class. There are lots or art projects. Hours and fees are excellent compared with most of the places I researched prior to coming here. The Director dedicates a great deal of time and finance to maintain and update her center. She is warm and very helpful. Both my husband and I have had a very positive experience with the Looking Glass. My daughter is always well taken care of and thoroughly enjoys her friends teachers and the place itself. I recommend Looking Glass wholeheartedly.
