    I love this preschool! My children are well cared for and they actually teach the kids in addition to watching them for the day. A little expensive but well worth it!

    My son has attended Baylife Academy for three years. Everyone has their own experience I recognize this but I don't understand the previous poster's comment so I wanted to go out of my usual mode and post. I am actually the parent of 3 sons ( 9 - 22) which all have significant disabilities of different degrees/areas & we have spent many years in public school & other private schools. I am well educated on student's rights & the public school system process concerning IDEA & escalating issues to OCR or FLDOE. Baylife has impressed me. It's a small school it does not have the budget like public school's do. However I haven't found this impact my son. The staff do work very hard and care greatly about their student's and are equipped to educate children w/ disabilities. I have found them more than willing to listen & ready to work with me about my child.
