School Reviews

Our daughter has been attending Bethel Preschool in Encino for over four months now, and we have had nothing but the best experiences there. The faulty and staff are always available and attentive for the children and adults. In class, they have a structured agenda for the day. At the Teensy Turtle level (15-24 months), they have outside and inside play time, art activities, circle time (they actually keep the attention of the kids for 20-30 minutes at a time... it''s amazing), lunch, snack times, nap time, and through out the week they incorporate gym and other stimulating activities. Within the first week of school, they had a dental hygienist come in and show the kids how to brush their teeth. Bethel also has many functions to be involved in like back to school night, parent teacher conferences, parent forums, fundraising events, parades for different holidays, etc. An additional selling point for me was the fact that they get all of their food from a local restaurant that prepares food with organic, whole ingredients. Every aspect of Bethel is lovable and desirable for our daughter. And if that wasn''t enough, the teachers also send you photos of your child playing throughout the day, and you get a sheet at the end of each day that tells you what your little one did that day. They have thought about everything that a parent could want in a preschool and implemented it. Bethel is by far the best choice in a preschool.
