School Reviews

My daughter and son have thrived under the tutelage of the teachers at Buttercup Hill. They love to go to school, love to learn and are excited each day. The teachers are loving yet firm. The directress, Mrs. Gloria Rice, loves each and every one of her students, and sees to it that everyday is a day for discovery and learning, while enjoying what it''s like to be 3, 4 or 5. The quality of instruction is top notch, and they provide so many opportunities for extracurricular activities -- music, choir, art and lit, computer, gymnastics, soccer/t-ball/yoga, drama, science. My daughter transitioned to kindergarten at another school without a problem, and hit the ground running. Here is where your child will blossom, thrive and enjoy their childhood. For me, there is no other place to bring your children for preschool and kindergarten.
