School Reviews

Carden is an outstanding school. My son age 6 loves school even though it is academically challenging -- they are starting fractions in kindergarten. They have music, art and French, PE in addition to a focus on the fundamentals. My son can read (not site words) but from a book because they teach reading not memorization. He can add up to double simple carrying and subtract up to 10. It's a little expensive for us because we don't need the after school care which is included in the tuition. Our son generally stays though because it is like the old neighborhood play ground, an experience most of our kids don't get anymore.
