Almaden Valley Nursery has an excellent selection of plants. The number of different types of roses they have is awesome. Their staff is very knowledgeable and always willing to help out. They have a good return policy if something happens to one of the plants you buy there.

I was very impressed with Interior Woodwork's base board and molding. Jeren was very accurate, he paid attention to the details and was very neat and tidy. We love the results of the new trim!

I like Almaden Valley Gymnastics because of the good instructors, the good facilities and the fact that they have a competitive team who is often practicing at the same time the classes are running. My kids are inspired by the level of athletics around them. Each year the classes put on a "Night of the Stars" recital. This recital includes all the levels, is not an overdone over priced production, and is fun for everyone.
They have both boys and girls in the classes.
PROS: good teachers, competitive team
The Emperor of India has a really nice modern decor, and great tasting food. I really like their buffet because they always have different foods offered. The menu is extensive. They are prompt and efficient. It is reasonably priced.
PROS: rotating buffet, modern decor, clean
Erawan offers great Thai food at reasonable prices. The restaurant is clean and the service friendly. The dishes are authentic, but they will adjust the spice level for you.
PROS: great food, clean, reasonably priced
We are very happy with One World Montessori school. My kids started going their in their infant community (12 months+), where they learned great life skills like potty training, feeding themselves, putting away their toys, and lots of academic songs, games, and projects.They are know in the preschool and kinder garden program. The school closely follows the Montessori methodology. They learn lots about other countries, cultures and languages. They have great hands on activities that teach them everything from writing to reading to math to life skills. There are lots of special visitors to the schools that introduce the kids to everything from music, to snakes to dancing to fire safety.The staff is very caring. Most of the staff have been there for a long time and really engage the kids. The children learn peaceful ways to resolve conflicts. They learn to respect the environment and the other students. The kids put on amazing events like UN day, Halloween, holiday pageants....I can not recommend this school enough. It really is awesome.
PROS: caring teachers, engaging curriculum, Montessori methodology

When my kids get their hair cut at Balloon cuts there are no tears, no fussing, no squirming and no regrets. Balloon cuts knows their kids cuts.

The stylists listen and cut according to what you want, and are also good at giving suggestions when asked.
PROS: fun, kid friendly, good kid cuts, clean
