My daughter participated in both the pre-school and Kindergarten programs at Riley and we absolutely loved it! My daughter has a love of reading largely due to her experience there. Because of the phonemic awareness she gained at Riley, she is able to take on four and five syllable words with ease. She received a lot of individual attention in the classroom because of the small class sizes which is much more advantageous than the extra large classroom sizes of our public schools in Merrillville. The staff is dedicated and caring and the atmosphere is warm yet professional. I highly recommend Riley Childcare Center and wish them continued success in each and every young life they touch. –Jennifer J. G.
