What Parents are Saying About Skipwith Academy

I am thankful for all of the wonderful care that the staff at Skipwith at Woodlake provides to my son. He loves his teachers and his class! I appreciate the open door policy that allows me to visit throughout the day. The staff in the infant room teaches my son so many important lessons and always tells us all about his day. When we worried about his napping schedule, they took the time to talk with us and helped us brainstorm ways to make napping easier for him. We appreciate very much the love that Skipwith provides daily to our baby and we love being a part of the Skipwith Academy family!


My favorite Skipwith Academy event so far has been the Q&U Wedding!! While the Art Show was a close second, I really enjoyed the opportunity to see weeks of hard work and creativity blossom into such a beautiful performance. The best part was that parents, students, and teachers all participated in some way – between costumes and decorations to practicing and reciting lines, we all took part in making this a successful event. Thanks for allowing us to share in and be a part of such wonderful memories!

My daughter has been in Skipwith Academy at Pebble Creek since she was 10 weeks old, and she’s now 3 months shy of being 3. From Day 1, we have loved everything about Skipwith, and the comfort it gives us knowing that she is well taken care of. Everyone there is fantastic to work with, they’re great with the kids, and my daughter really enjoys going to school every day. Each night before she goes to bed, she tells me that she’ll see me in the morning when we go to school, because she actually looks forward to going. That is proof to me, that Skipwith is a great place with fabulous people! I would recommend it to anyone who asks me.


I just wanted to say how much my family has loved Skipwith. I knew I could drop off my daughter and she would be cared for the way I would care for her. Her teacher, who has been there forever, used to call her sunshine and still does. Currently, my middle child is in the Montessori Program and I could not be happier. She has learned so much in this class. My youngest is in the infant room and the teacher is the same loving and caring person that she was when my daughter was in her class. I am looking forward to my son growing with Minnieland as my other children are. Thank you for all you do!!

Rutland has been a blessing to me and my family. When I drop my son off, I have the greatest peace of mind because I know that he is being taken care of. He enjoys going to school where he receives security, education and love from his teachers. The programs at Rutland are phenomenal and I wouldn't suggest anywhere else to go. Thank you, Rutland, for being my home away from home.

My daughter has been going to Skipwith for 2.5 years. She loves it there. She loves the directors and the teachers. They treat her so well. The school is historic and beautiful. The rates are about the same all the other centers in the area and they provide breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack. In the summer they have educational fun field trips and a private pool, as well as in house events! We love Skipwith!

Christine P.

We have been members of the Skipwith family for over 3 years, having a child go from the Infant Program up to Prep, and two more in the Infant program today. We have been blessed with Teachers along the way that have cared for and loved on our children as if they were their own. We see this love in each Milestone they meet and exceed, the daily reports and feedback, and the bonds they make with their teachers. We have proudly recommended Skipwith for its program, teachers and staff over the years and continue to provide this support today! Thanks for loving our family and especially our kids!
