I live in La Quinta and have been looking for a good preschool for my daughter. I saw First School online and after reading some of these reviews, I just had to give it a shot. BEST decision I ever made! My daughter has a blast here, and I get some peace of mind (she''s 3!). Definitely recommend them!
