Running a Day Care and Preschool is a challenge in itself. Alpine Country Day has a developed an old fashion and enriching approach to children's development and growth. Good old fashion play. Something that is missing in our modern schools. I love it! I also admire Julie Ramierez and Marlene Ziegler's desire to reach all students including students with special needs and with severe food allergies. This is a safe and loving environment for both.

My child has been attending ACDS for four years now and I have nothing but the utmost praise for this learning center. Every teacher I have encountered has always been professional and has put my child interests first. This is not just a daycare but a place for my child to grow and learn. My son is excelling in every aspect of his life because of the great staff at ACDS. Definetly would recommend.

As the director of Alpine Country Day School, I'm responding to a recent negative review of our center. We have been providing child care for East County children since 1982, and pride ourselves on the relationships that we've worked hard to develop with the families here, and the good reputation that we've established in the community. Apparently a substitute teacher used confidential information for personal reasons. We terminated her employment because we know that confidentiality is an important issue, and we make every effort to protect it. We invite parents to visit us anytime, or to contact San Diego Community Childcare Licensing to review their evaluations of our center.

I have known kids who have gone to this school for 30 yrs. But in the last 10 years the gossip pool there has become unbearable, personal information in your childs file is openly shared in order to fuel the gossip. When brought to the attention of the director she backs her staff and not her students. The teachers have gone as far as to probe children for information. The gossip here added fuel to an already terrible divorce. And is now attacking an innecont family for a teachers personal reasons. It saddens me that such a long established preschool has become like this.
