Parent Testimonials

Georgetown Hill is a very special place. It’s a place where parents leave their children in the most loving and caring hands. The staff is exceptional and brilliant in their teaching methods. They are truly dedicated to helping children achieve their full potential in a loving environment. My children felt special every single day and that they could achieve anything. I was so fortunate to have all three of my children at Georgetown Hill and I will always be thankful to the special teachers at Georgetown Hill.

There is not a day that goes by that I am not grateful for Georgetown Hill! Our son was approaching his 2nd birthday and my husband and I felt it was the best time for him to get more socialization and help boost his speech since he was behind in that area. We asked our friends for recommendations and more than one friend gave us the name of Georgetown Hill. We looked at three different campuses (which were all wonderful), but finally settled on Woodley Gardens for the convenience of their location. My husband and I were extremely nervous because our son had been in the care of my mother up until then and was not always great with people he was not familiar with. On the very first day of school, we were able to put all of our fears and worries to rest. The Director, Melanie Morillo was a warm, friendly face as she had originally given me the tour and she went above and beyond to ease our nerves with a photo of our smiling son shortly after I had dropped him off. Ms. Allie and Ms. Benjie in the Two’s classroom were his teachers and they could not have been any more loving and caring to our son and to us! We felt our precious baby was in the next best hands and was being cared for with genuine love and affection. Since that day, our son has FLOURISHED in so many different aspects. I am always amazed with what he has learned! Now he is in the Three’s classroom with Ms. Fiorella and Ms. Sharon (who we also love dearly!) and truly enjoys every day he spends there. It’s not easy to be a working parent, but knowing that your baby is in the very best hands possible is an immense comfort. I’m so grateful that I can go to work and know that my son is learning new things every day and making friends and growing into the best little man he can be! Our second son will begin at Georgetown Hill this summer and our third son will attend in the future as well! I would recommend Georgetown Hill to any parent!

Georgetown Hill has become a second family to the Hecklingers! It is so reassuring to leave your young children in the care of those who love them like we do. Not only did they learn the necessary social and academic skills to be successful for Kindergarten, each one of us has made life long friends. It's been more than day-care, or pre-school, it's been a second home and we are so grateful. While we are excited that Henry, our youngest, has the adventures of elementary school ahead of him, we will miss our dear friends at Georgetown Hill tremendously.
