What our customers say...

  

"My kids have been going to Radiance Learning for more than two years now and just love the school, the teachers, and the whole environment. They also went for summer camp most of the summer last year and want to go here only this year. We love the school. It’s run by some very passionate people and it clearly shows. They are stem-focused, in a very nurturing environment. The teachers and the founder are always available and are happy to listen to you and your child to make it a great experience for everyone. I was amazed at the amount of fun my kids had at the camp last year – park trips, board games, etc. along with some fun robot races, chess competitions, and eng creations. And the teachers were so understanding with my daughter who had just finished K last year by offering her a variety of things to do during the day so she’s happy and motivated all day. I remember them having a ton of little kids board games already and then going out and buying more games and craft supplies specifically for younger kids. They are awesome! It’s my kids one and only summer camp location choice this year."
