Hear What Parents Have To Say...
I cannot recommend Bug Lady Science Academy (BLSA) enough! My son attended from 2.5 years until he transitioned to Kindergarten. The staff are trustworthy and love the children as their own. The atmosphere and curriculum is unique and engaging. My son was more than prepared when he left BLSA for Kindergarten. If you're looking for a preschool, look no further!

We absolutely loved our experience at The Bug Lady! My son came home daily sharing new facts about animals and science, his teachers were in constant communication with us, and he made the best friends. Now that he's in kindergarten at a public school, he is above his class in both reading and math--no doubt due to the education he received at BLSA!
- Ashley Borniger
Amazing place! Both my daughters attended The Bug Lady's Science Academy for pre-school and they still talk about it years later -- they absolutely loved their time there and often ask, when can they go back. The Bug Lady and her staff are amazing, the building is truly magical and unique, and the curriculum is fun, engaging, and educational.

Can't recommend The Bug Lady's Science Academy enough!!!! It's a magical place from the moment you walk in. We have had 2 kiddos graduate from the school. Our kids loved going there everyday. This was the easiest 5 star rating I've ever given. Caring teachers, good communicators, great curriculum, this place is the BEST.

My family absolutely loved The Bug Lady Science Academy! The teachers were so friendly, fun, knowledgeable, caring and I could go on and on!! My daughter was learning new things everyday and still, years later, talks about all her friends-animal and human, from Bug Lady!!

I can’t say enough good things about BLSA. Outstanding staff, strong educational programming, and a fun and caring atmosphere. I loved how easy the staff made things for a busy working mom. We moved right after our daughter finished kindergarten at BLSA, and during the next year, she consistently performed a grade level ahead in science and reading.

Bug Lady and her staff went above and beyond to make sure our daughter was prepared to start school. The summer program was by far the best I have seen, my kids loved all of the science, activities and most of all the staff. Two years later and my kids still ask to stop in and say hello. Highly recommend!
- Kayce Martin
My daughter attended The Bug Lady Science Academy from the age of 3 until she aged out. We would have stayed forever if that would have been an option. She learned so much there, and looked forward to going every single day. The staff is all very caring and always keep you update on what has happened throughout the week. I highly recommend them!
- Jade Vickery
I absolutely recommend her to be a part of any program with kids or adults! She is simply amazing. She is kind & gentle and makes learning fun. If someone is scared of an animal she encourages without “making” anyone touch that animal. She is knowledgeable in her information and education. Keep doing what you are doing! I am so blessed to know you Carrie! 5 stars!!
